Wine is a universal language shared by many people around the world. If you’re looking for the best gifts for wine lovers, read on! This post has tons of great holiday gift ideas to give to a friend or family member who loves wine.
This post was originally published on November 10, 2020 and has been to include even more wine gift ideas.
Not only is wine delicious to drink, but cute wine-related gifts are also great to give girlfriends and family members! I found some awesome items that make the perfect presents for wine lovers in your life!
Online wine gifts help me take care of gift-giving for my girlfriends throughout the year. Amazon Prime has changed my life and you can find almost everything that you need without leaving your house.
Sometimes buying actual wine can be hard because if you don’t know a lot about wine or their flavor preferences (for me, it’s sauvignon blanc), you may not know what bottle to buy someone.
But if you know they love wine, a wine-themed gift is always a good idea! They’re perfect for the wine lover who has everything.
This holiday gift guide contains a bunch of reasonably priced wine gifts that fit just about any budget! And with Prime, you get free shipping! Man do I love free shipping!

Presents for Wine Lovers
A lot of these gifts are under $25 and will definitely cause smiles (and more wine drinking). I like to look for things that I think my recipient would like but might not buy for themselves. That’s what really makes something a treat!
I try to stick with Amazon ideas for ease of shopping, but sometimes what you’re looking for is only found at another retailer. Always look for coupon codes when shopping to see if you can save money!
And while I always have my best girlfriends in mind when shopping, since they are my favorite people to buy for, most of these would work for any gender.
1. Give the Gift of a Wine Club!
First off, the BEST gift for a wine lover is a wine club! I love Winc and have been a member for several years. While this is not on Amazon, I still wanted to make sure to includd it!
What I love about this wine club is that my standard order is just 3 bottles a month (mostly priced around $13). It’s totally reasonable.
Being a part of Winc has been so much fun and allowed me to try new to me wine brands and varieties. It’s a fun way to wine taste at home. And when I don’t need wine, I can just skip a month. Super easy!
Winc has gift cards available on their site so you don’t even need to subscribe the preson. They can set their own preferences and try some out.
2. Sangria Jam
Sangria Jam is the perfect way to have wine for breakfast! The fruity taste of sangria condensed into a jam is a great wine gift idea. Gift it on its own or pair it with a few other items on this list to create a fun treat for anyone who loves brunch.
3. Wine Key
Sure, she’ll already have a wine opener but does she have one as cute as this Wine Key that also opens beer?? I don’t think so. This is one of those items that is cute to leave out and doesn’t need to be stashed away in a drawer.
4. Wine Tasting Journal
5. Wine Making Kit
A Wine Making Kit let’s you try your hand at making your own wine! This kit allows you to make your own Pinot Grigio in just 3 weeks. But they have other varieties too! It doesn’t require tons of equipment so you can give it a try without feeling like you need to add on to the garage to store everything.
6. Shimmery Champagne
This set of Champagne Shimmers are a fun way to celebrate the season. In 4 fun colors, these are added to a glass of champagne to make them sparkly and pretty. These would be great for a 21 year old celebrating her first holiday as a drinker.
7. Wine Socks
These funny wine socks are just helpful… They instantly let everyone know what mood you are in and that you’re ready to be waited on. They’re perfect for cozying up on the couch with a glass of vino.
8. High End Acrylic Wine Glasses
I love drinking wine from a glass but it’s not the most practical for outdoor drinking. This set of Sole Outdoor Glasses is acrylic but looks elegant like a traditional wine glass. Better yet, they’re dishwasher safe!
9. Rabbit Frozen Cocktail Maker
Make Frozé a giftable experience by giving the Rabbit Frozen Cocktail Maker. This super cool contraption comes with a cocktail cookbook showing you how to make several frozen concotions including frozen rosé. It’s easy and delicious and now your friend can make it at home whenever she wants.
10. Champagne Saver Cap
A Capabunga Champagne Saver is a fun little add-on gift that really does keep a bottle of champagne from going flat if you don’t finish it. And I never finish a bottle! (Unless I’m on a girl’s trip…). See also their regular wine bottle stoppers!
11. A Stopper System
There are all kinds of wine stoppers, but I love my Vacu Vin Wine Stoppers. You pump the want to suck the extra air out of the bottle to hopefully make that open bottle last a little bit longer! (Or check out how I infuse wine to make older wine taste better).
A practical gifts sometimes make the best gifts for wine lovers.
12. Holiday Wine Tea Towel
This Wine Tea Towel is hysterical! Such a fun idea to gift along with a bottle of wine. Add it to a gift basket or keep things simple with just the towel. These are great to keep on hand as hostess gifts.
13. Insulated Wine Tumbler
I hate when my wine gets warm! This Insulated Wine Tumbler comes in tons of patterns and colors and will help keep your drink cold and look cute too!
14. Stainless Steel Wine Glasses
Unlike the insulated tumblers above, these are more like regular wine glasses, but made of stainless steel! These stainless wine glasses are great for people who are klutzy (have I told you about my BFF…), or that live in a chaotic household where things get broken easily (moms of boys…).
I would have loved these when my kids were toddlers. I was always so sure a foot or a ball was going to break my wine glasses. This is one of the best gifts for wine lovers with kids!
15. A Funny and Fun Wine Book
Marissa Ross is my favorite wine writer and she wrote a book last year called Wine All the Time. It’s full of great information and really helps to make wine tasting not feel so snobby.
16. Electric Wine Opener
An electric wine opener is a great idea! We don’t want to get carpal tunnel from opening all wine bottles, right? This one has a small foot print and is super simple to use.
17. Wine Cork Monogram Decoration
I don’t save my corks but I know a lot of people do. This Wine Cork Holder Monogram is a great wine gift idea and fun decor item at the same time! Propped on a buffet or hung on a wall, this would be one of the best wine gifts for newlyweds.
18. Wine Trivia Game
I am far from a wine expert but I do love to learn! This Wine Wars Trivia Game would be a fun game to learn about wine to play while drinking wine. This is one of the best gifts for wine lovers who consider themselves novice wine drinkers.
19. Chambong or Chambong Mini
I have a Chambong. It’s a gorgeous glass contraption used to shotgun a glass of champagne with. It’s super unneccesary and hard to use on account of the chugging of a bubbly beverage.
The Chambong Mini just makes more sense to me. Especially at 44 years old. It’s still pretty but holds a more reasonable amount of champagne to chug. If that’s a thing.
20. Funny Ornament
It’s true, wine and the holidays go hand in hand. I love giving ornaments as a gift and this one is perfect for your BFF. The He Knows When You’ve Been Drinking Ornament will put a smile on anyone’s face. Hang it around the neck of a delicious bottle of bubbly and you’re, for sure, going to get a thank you note.
21. Prosecco Pong
Take college fun to a classier level with this Prosecco Pong game. This is something to bring out at parties for a little champagne fun! It’s not something you would probably buy for yourself which is why it makes such a fun wine gift idea!
22. Rosé All Day T-Shirt
Wine related t-shirts are always a fun idea. They are a conversation starter and this scripty font on this Rosé All Day T-Shirt makes it girly and cute! This is one of the best gifts for wine lovers who prefer their wine to be pretty and pink.
23. Biggie Lyric T-Shirt
90’s rap lyrics float around in my head pretty much constantly. So why not wear them on a shirt! I bet Biggie never dreamed a bunch of middle-aged women would wear a Now We Sip Champagne T-Shirt.
24. Insulated Bottle
This is technically a bottle for water…But this 25-ounce insulated bottle size holds a whole bottle of wine and keeps it cold! This is great for beach trips or pool days where you don’t want (or can’t have) glass but wants to enjoy your chilled wine. I have one and I use it all summer long (like, not in an excessive way, but a casual summer drinker sort of way).
25. A Real Big Glass
Sometimes you just know that you’re going to have a bottle of wine. So why have to go back and refill your glass when you can just take care of it right at the start with a Big Betty Wine Glass. Your friend will love you for it. Especially if you don’t judge them for actually drinking a bottle.
26. Aerator and Decanter
A One Button Aerator and Decanter is a great little gadget for red wine lovers in your life. It won’t take up much space and it’s pretty to look at.
27. Wine Purse
Gift a Wine Purse BECAUSE IT HOLDS 2 FULL BOTTLES OF WINE AND YOUR WALLET. I imagine you’ll have to visit a chiropractor after this due to the weight on your shoulder but gosh darn it, you’ve got wine for everyone right in your purse!
28. Macrame Bottle Purse
A Macrame Wine Bottle Purse is something I use way more than I ever expected! If I’m heading to a neighbors house, I toss a bottle of wine in. If I’m on vacation and want to enjoy a bottle outside, I bring it in this contraption. It’s pretty and stylish.
This is one of the best gifts for wine lovers who love fashion and literally have everything else.
29. Small Wine Fridge
We don’t have room for a wine fridge but this 6 Bottle Wine Cooler is super compact! It’s a great starter wine fridge for someone who doesn’t have a lot of space. It’s on the pricier side so this is a special occasion gift or for someone you really like.
30. Wine Bucket Stand
A wine bucket stand is a fun idea to gift the friend who has everything. It feels elegant and indulgent to have your own footed wine bucket just like the restaurants do.
31. Bottle Chiller
This Bottle Chiller is a a great way to keep a bottle of wine cool for up to 6 hours. It’s a great idea for picnics or if you don’t want to have to keep going to the fridge to refill.
32. Champagne Saber
A bucket list item of mine was to saber open a bottle of champagne. So, a few years ago for my birthday, my mother-in-law bought me my very own Champagne Saber!!!
It’s a total party trick and it’s pretty spectacular. I don’t open all my champagne with it but it’s a great wine gift idea for sure! This is one of the best gifts for wine lovers who you think has everything!
33. Hangover Supplements
I am a HUGE fan of anti-hangover supplements. People always ask me what I take and say they should try it too. Then they don’t. Giving them a variety of supplements will hopefully show them how easy it is not to have a hangover.
While I am not a doctor, and many of these aren’t approved by the FDA as a legitimate anti-hangover aid, I have personlly found them to help me SO MUCH!
My favorites in order are:
- Cheers (I haven’t written a post on these yet but I take these any time I have 2 or more drinks. While I still might wake up with a wine headache, I don’t get any of the other symptoms. And a quick glass of their hydration mix really helps the headache too!
- Zaca – Read my Zaca review.
If you have a wine lover in your life, these ideas will help you get them crossed off your gift list.
Do Not Buy These
There are a few wine gifts that you should not bother with.
Silicon cups are too squishy and they literally collapse under the weight of your own hand sending wine everywhere. Learned that one the hard way. A few times. Because they are really cute, but they just don’t make sense.
Just no to wine glass markers. Unless your friend is a super sloppy drinker, she’s going to know which glass is hers. Yes, they would be great for a party, maybe, but there are probably cuter drink charms that can be used.
Over decorated wine glasses. While sometimes you may think they are so super cute, it’s often hard to get one that suits the recipients style well. Buy one for yourself if you have to have it. Don’t force your style on others.
- My Favorite 5 Bottles of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – Five of my favorite sauvignon blancs under $20.
- Introduction to Sherry Wine – If you love wine, but haven’t tried sherry, you need to read this post on your next favorite sip.
