We’re officially in the thick of the holiday season which means parties, meals and opportunities to toast galore. In between glasses, we may also do some holiday shopping for all the wine lovers in our lives.
Unfortunately wine related gifts aren’t always as elegant as the wines we drink and collect, which you know if you’ve ever been on the receiving end of bedazzled wine decor. While it’s always the thought that counts, this holiday season we decided to round up some luxurious presents — from stocking stuffers to splurges — that we’d love to receive. And we promise there’s not a sequin in sight.
1. Corvi Cement Wine Cooler - $85
Sculptural lines in earthen colored cement mean this chiller does double duty on the dinette or the dinner table.
2. Menagerie Wine Aerators - $29-$49
Slurp in style with your spirit animal cast in silver or gold. Our favorite for pouring everything from Albariño to Zinfandel is the gold titanium stag.
3. Josef Hoffman Wine Decanter - $1,330
We’re in lust with this unique and elegant Art Deco decanter by design icon Josef Hoffman.
4. Olive and Poppy Bracelet - $60
Created by two friends in Napa, Olive and Poppy crafts jewelry and other pieces from repurposed Cabernet wine barrels including this hip, geometric bangle.
5. Tom Dixon Copper Hex Champagne bucket - $260
A classy champagne like Krug Grande Cuvée calls for a blockbuster bucket. You’ll want to use this copper one on the regular just for the chance to admire it.
6. Rewined Soaps - $9 each
With scents inspired by wines from Champagne to Pinot Noir, we wouldn’t say no to washing our mouths out with these soapy delights.
7. Monique Lhuillier Waterford Atelier Decanter - $260
A crystal decanter never goes out of style. We love this classic beauty by Monique Lhuillier for Waterford.
8. The Durand Bottle Opener - $125
Made especially to remove delicate vintage corks, like the one from your favorite vintage Chateau Latour, this opener is an essential for any true collector.
