We have all been there. We have the kids' gifts taken cared of. Now we are on to our adult friends, family, or hostess gifting. Being the wine lovers we are, we love to share our experience but do we know what friends "really" like? Even those we know that drink wine?
Do they like red or whites? Sweet or dry? Californian, French, Italian? The options are endless and you'd like to make it work. Here some reasonably priced and practical use ideas to try to help:
No matter what, depending on your price point, you can always include a bottle of wine as part of the gift. Does not have to be expensive, may be a different varietal that people rarely think to try. I love trying new wines and there are very reasonably priced ones such as a Tempranillo from Spain, a Torrentes from Argentina, or a Pinotage from South Africa. Hey it's only a bottle and it's a gift and who’s going to be brand conscious with it...they’ll be wine conscious!
Be sure to gift wrap and include a personal note relating to the gift given (i.e. "I hope you’ll use this often and think of me/us" or "I know you are adventuresome, here's another adventure"). Add a canister of Silvadore Wine Preserver and they will have a really nice and unique wine gift for this holiday season.
P.S. Here's another fun last minute wine gift idea - a Napa/Sonoma Wine Buff from Soiree Home. Click this image to check out the Wine Buff (bottle of wine not included):
