Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but this time of year is so delightful. We love any excuse to raise a glass to cheers with friends and family, so we’re here to help shrug off some of the holiday stress with our favorite wine themed holiday gift exchange ideas for everyone in your life.
For the Homebody
Get toasty with some adorable wine-themed socks, or some festive holiday pajamas. Grab a couple of “partners in wine” shirts for you and your bestie, so you two can twin all season long. If they prefer to relax with a nice bubble bath, a bath tray makes for a great holiday gift and will greatly enhance their nightly soaking experience. Make sure you pick one out that has a wine glass holder (please use plastic stemware), and include Rosé bath salts or a candle.
For the Wine Connoisseur
Nice glassware can truly elevate the wine drinking experience. You can find some beautiful stemware for relatively low cost at many department stores that are perfect for everyday sipping. If you wanted to get a little bit fancier, every wine connoisseur needs a decanter. Not only do decanters serve a functional purpose to help aerate the wine, but they also look stunning on any dining table. If you’re looking for something a little less fragile that you could potentially send in the mail, a special wine key (they make gold-plated ones!) or a pretty bottle stopper are perfect holiday gifts.
For the Foodie
If the way to their heart is through their stomach, spoil those foodies in your life with some delicious wine flavored chocolates, or better yet, a wine and chocolate pairing kit. For those who are always inviting you over for dinner, and hosting lovely weekend happy hours, a wood or marble cheese board is the perfect holiday gift. We highly recommend including your favorite cheeses and charcuterie in a festive holiday gift basket.
When in doubt, a delicious bottle of wine is always a wonderful idea. Pro tip: if you pick out a bottle with a beautiful label you can even skip the wrapping, just add a festive bow. So there’s no need to stress this holiday season because AVA Grace is the perfect holiday gift for every wine lover on your list. Shop our wines online here.
