This first suggestion is a must have for any wine gift for any aficionado.
The Oster Wine Chiller and Opener is the perfect combination of gadgets to effortlessly enjoy an evening of wine sipping.
The cordless stainless steel opener is stylishly and ergonomically designed. It has a soft grip handle and easily removes corks with a push of a button.
The opener also includes a foil cutter and a rechargeable base. This means that each charge will give you enough juice to open at least 30 bottles.
Additionally, the wine chiller is made from stainless steel which will easily keep your wine cold for hours.
The only thing you need now to have fun is some actual wine and some friends to enjoy it with.
This next suggestion is mandatory wine gift for all wine drinkers.
You may of heard of wine aerators. Well think of this product as the Ferrari of wine aerators.
The Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer is special because it has a large aerating chamber and air intake system. This allows it to utilize the Bernoulli Effect to infuse your wine with the OPTIMAL amount of oxygen.
If all this sounds complicated, just know that it makes your wine taste better.
The rubber stopper is tapered and ribbed to create a leak-free seal for wine bottles of all sizes. The acrylic pour spout is notched and ergonomically slanted for easy drip-less pouring.
Why use an aerator you ask?
Because studies show that even the cheapest wines taste much better once aerated.
So much so, that it is said that once used the aerator makes your wine taste similar to ones double the price.
Here’s a fun game idea.
Head to clearance aisle of your nearest liquor store store and rack up some cheap wines. Pour them through the aerator and serve.
Lastly, secretly enjoy the fact that you can fool your pretentious wine snob friends with cheap booze.
Eliminating hangovers. Could there be a better gift?
So many of us out there suffer from wine ‘headaches’ or ‘hangovers’ from the histamines, sulfites and other additives that are found in most wines.
Now in just 3 minutes with the The Wand by PureWine, you can eliminate headaches, skin flush, congestion and hangovers that are a result of these additives.
The best part is that The Wand does not change the color, taste or aroma of our favorite varietals.
So let’s all get bombed for the holidays now that we have discovered this new secret weapon.
Not only is this gift suggestion funny but its useful as well.
Imagine the face of your father-in-law when he opens a package of ‘wine condoms’ during your next celebration.
This wine prophylactic is guaranteed to give everyone a good laugh.
Of course this makes a great gag gift, but its also a solid product that works.
The Wine Condom is a 100% food grade latex reusable ‘condom’ that provides an air tight seal that helps prolong the freshness of your favorite wines.
It’s leak proof and spill proof and extremely durable even when transporting already oped bottles of wine.
If you need more convincing, these condoms are celebrity approved and have been featured on NBC’s ‘Today Show’ as well as CNBC’s ‘Make it’.
After all, when it comes to drinking wine and making bad decisions, we can all use extra protection.
This fact can be especially embarrassing considering most of us have been drinking wine for quite some time.
Wine Wars: A Trivia Game is just that humbling gift.
‘This fun and fascinating trivia game tests your knowledge of the fruit of the vine. Let the battle begin as players answer questions in categories such as Vine to Vino (growing grapes, making wine, and world production), Wine Cellar (selecting, storing, and tasting wine), and Cork Culture (wine people, business, arts and science, and trivia).’
‘Perfect for those new to the world of wine, but challenging enough for the devoted oenophile, Wine Wars will have you swirling, sniffing, and sipping your way to vinicultural victory.’
See you just learned the word vinicultural, don’t you feel smarter already.
