Wine Lovers Gift Guide {2010}  Print

Santa’s wino elves have been extra busy this year, making things that are certain to appeal to every wine lover on your gift list. With so many unique items to choose from, we broke down our finds into several, categorized posts. So stayed tuned to Wine Imbiber over the next couple of weeks if what you seek for your holiday gift giving is wine–related. We guarantee you’ll find at least one thing you’ve never seen or heard about before! But, for today, we’re presenting the first category of our annual Holiday Gift Guide.

Category One: Bottle {Toppers & Tags}

Candy Cane Border

Bottle Toppers from uncommon goods 
Tired of presenting your wine gift in a standard paper or mylar wine bag? Then check out these festive holiday–themed bottle toppers. These are hand knit in Armenia and sure to bring a smile to your gift recipient (we like the stewed–Rudolph best). They’re sold individually ($14–$18 each) and are only available for the holiday season in limited quantities, so when they sell out, they’re gone for good! Find them at uncommon goods.

Candy Cane Border

Vintage Silver Spoon Gift Tags from NapaStyleHere’s another way to dress up your gift bottles of wine and champagne (or just about any type of bottle). These vintage silver spoon gift tags are made from vintage silver-plated spoons that are cut, hammered flat and smoothed, then finished with metal bead chains for hanging. They’re sold in matching pairs ($34 for two) and available at NapaStyle with these sentiments: Buon Natale, Salute, Grazie.

Candy Cane Border

Wine Toppers from west end 
More fun bottle décor that will make your wine gifts all the merrier! Leggy Santa wine topper and Moose the wine loving bottle hugger (with magnetic arms and legs) will happily sit atop (in Santa’s case) or wrap his arms and legs (that’d be Moose) around any wine or bubbly bottle. Available at at west end ($16 each).

Candy Cane Border

Happy Holidays Tags from Sundance 
Another wine tag to dress up your bottles and express your holiday cheer. This one is ceramic (made with clay and fired in a kiln) and reusable and hangs on your wine (or other) bottle via jingle bells and ribbon. You could even coordinate your olive oil or salad dressing bottle with your wine bottle by adding a matching tag. Sold in sets of three ($25) from Sundance.

Ah, the leggy Santa! My father actually collects Santa figurines (has them from all over the world), so that would be a great wine bottle accessory for him. I should also suggest it to our online customers – I’m currently promoting Hall Wines’ highly rated 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet for holiday dinner pairing and gifts (perhaps you’ve heard of it, as an oenophile?) and since the wine is only available now onilne (stock’s running out!) it’d be an easy suggestion to pair the two items together. I love getting wine gifts with trinkets like these, thanks for the post!
