Whether you decide to purchase a ready-made wine lovers gift set or get creative and make your own, there are many wonderful items to choose from. It may seem difficult to find the right gift for a long-time wine lover who seems to have everything. However, there’s a good chance that something new, something different will come along to make the perfect gift.
One of the first ideas to work with: Narrow your focus to the occasion. Think only in terms of the holiday theme or special day for the person who will receive the gift. This allows you to look for wine gifts that are right for an anniversary or for a birthday. If the gift will be given on a major holiday you will probably find numerous wine lovers gift set ideas in catalogs and on Web sites.
Assuming you are going to buy a pre-made gift set from one of the top-quality suppliers, it’s best to shop around a bit, looking at three or four different “stores” or Web sites. There are some nice, simple gift sets available in the $30 price range that include a few select items. For this price you can get a packaged set that includes a corkscrew, foil cutter and an iceless bottle cooler. If you add a bottle of the person’s favorite wine you have a fantastic gift for almost any occasion.
Believe me, if you are looking for wine accessories gifts ...you'll find one. The diversity is gigantic!

Another great choice might be a decanter and glass set from one of the suppliers who offer these quality accessories. A gift-wrapped set that includes the decanter and four stemmed glasses is available in the $70 range. If your budget is a bit larger, you may want to add one of the world-class cheese-knife sets. After all, almost every wine lover is also a connoisseur of fine cheese! These are available in finely crafted wood cases for $200 to $300.
If you are one of the people who like to put together your own wine lovers gift set, here are a few suggestions for items to include. (Remember that many pre-made sets are available that include these same items.)
Custom labels and etched glassware are always a nice item in a mixed set. Several Web sites offer quality glasses that can be etched at a reasonable price. You may want to place one of the great wine-related books available from wine-specialty merchants or from most bookstores. These range from books on how to match wines with food to humorous, yet educational books about the wine lover’s lifestyle.
When you are shopping for a wine lovers gift, consider one of the discount wine gift baskets available from dozens of online suppliers. These might range from about $30 to as much as $200 and often include:
- and small items such as a quality corkscrew, mulling spices etc.
When you give a pre-made wine lovers gift set or create one, think about attaching an envelope that includes a gift certificate for a wine magazine subscription or a wine club membership. In fact, these popular items may also be available in some of the ready-made gifts sets.
