Unique Holiday Gifts for Wine Connoisseurs 2021


Raise a toast to wine connoisseurs on your shopping list this holiday season. We have you covered with our hand-picked selection of wine gifts.

From a unique wine preservation system to wine baskets, wine accessories and wine art maps; here are a few of the best wine gifts for wine lovers.

Wine Preservation

If you’re looking to invest in something unique and hyper-functional for wine connoisseurs, a Coravin preserver is a sure winner.

Extend the life of your favorite wines with Coravin® Pivot™ Wine Preservation System. The ingenious combination of the Pivot Stopper and Device preserves the remaining bottle for up to 4 weeks, ensuring the last glass is just as amazing as the first.

In addition to the Coravin Wine Preservation System, Coravin presents products that they love and include a wide range of exceptional wine gifts on their website.

Wine Gift Baskets

Receiving a beautifully arranged holiday wine gift basket is sure to put a smile on any recipient’s face. Wine inspired gift baskets never go out of style and are perfect for gifting to family, friends and coworkers.

If you are the creative type you might enjoy putting your own basket together with special touches that are sure to be appreciated.

One of our favorite places to shop for baskets and decorative accents to add to the basket is World Market. The Natural Hyacinth lined utility baskets are a good choice for a basket that not only looks good, but one that is durable. Here you can see a variety of basket choices available.

Basket kits can also be found at World Market that include the basket, raffia, gift tag and a clear basket bag.

Wine Gifts and baskets

Once you have selected a basket next comes the fun part! Filling it with personalized items that your wine lover will enjoy. With a trip (in person or online) to Total Wine & More you’ll find a great wine selection and helpful resources.

If your wine basket accents a particular wine region, for instance an Italy Inspired wine basket with Italian wine and goodies, you might enjoy adding our Wine Regions of Italy map to your gift.

Endless options are available for personalizing your own wine basket gifts.

Short on time?
With dozens of great options available online for ready-made baskets, the choices can be overwhelming! If you are feeling rushed or if you are a last-minute shopper, endless scrolling and website visits become a task.

Here are a few suggestions from websites that have a good variety of wine and nosh.

• Wine Country Gift Baskets does a thorough presentation of selections based on either price, varietals, customer favorites and more. In each of the varietal sections they even have a description and short history on the wine region which is helpful for the novice wine shopper.

Harry & David has strong brand recognition and they provide an excellent basket paired with fruits and cheeses. They have their own brand of wine which is not as desirable in our opinion, as the wine gift basket companies that source from a variety of vineyards. See more here
