Everything You Need To Know About Gifting Wine

November 29, 2018

It's official: the holiday season is becoming a topic of discussion. Many of us experience the dilemma of what to give for a holiday gift. Who do you buy for, what do they like, and how much to spend. The season of fall and winter is a wine lover’s favorite regardless of vintage.

What kind of wine do they prefer? Expensive wine doesn’t always equate to excellence. Check out the professional wine ratings, awards, and descriptions to select a bottle. You can ask experts at a wine shop or beverage warehouse to assist with selections. They can help remove the stress from the selection process.

The Red Wine Gift Basket above features gourmet snacks and wine accessories. The carefully chosen snacks are a perfect complement to the wine; consider the combination of salty and sweet treats. Since this is a custom gift basket, and the recipient of gift adores his Beagle, a gourmet Pup Treats were added from the Doggie Bakery. We included stunning burgundy wine glasses that are extremely durable and dishwasher safe. The pewter wine coaster is decorative but also protects the surface of a table. You want to give a gift that is thoughtful and memorable. 

During the holidays, who would not appreciate a gift that provides time for personal indulgence, and relaxation. This gift included the recipient’s favorite bottle of wine “Slow Press” along with sea salt aromatherapy candle, exfoliating loofa, lavender soap, ocean mineral bath salts with lavender buds, and natural hand cream. Lavender is one of the most widely used remedies in aromatherapy to promote relaxation. This fabulous gift helps to release tension and restores tranquility to your life.

To engage readership, they include a game or questions, and those participating subscribers, are put in a drawing.The gift for December Newsletter was a Holiday Wine Gift Box. Holiday Wine GiftBox included 2015 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Karia Chardonnay, red cut crystal white wine glasses, wine coaster, gourmet treats, and promotional products from the company. The Holiday Wine Gift Box was designed to engage subscribers and to get them to participate in the December drawing. If clients read theNewsletter, they were more aware of the services offered and helped to personalized the business.

The Wine Gift Box above was for a newly married couple. The gift included their favorite wine Bridlewood Chardonnay, two white wine glasses, heart wine stopper, chocolates for her, and nuts for him, and decorative keepsake box. A memorable heartfelt gift for the couple’s first holiday.

Wine can make a great gift for a newly married couple, housewarming gift, holiday hostess gift, or for a boss. Consider who you are buying the wine for and if you are unsure about wines ask at a store for advice. Select a wine within your price range. Do they have particular tastes or have you noticed what brand or type of wine they prefer to drink?

Whether it’s a gift for family, friends, business associates or clients, wine can be a perfect choice. The gift of wine is an impressive and appreciated way to give thanks! Remember the small details that make a wonderful gift, a great wine selection, gourmet treats, an elegant bow, and handwritten note.
