From bottle openers to wine stoppers, these creative gift ideas are sure to amaze and amuse that bon vivant you know…let the conversation begin! Cheers!!
Jonathan Adler Bottle Stopper – Let this cute little ceramic pig with a glossy white glaze cap your wine bottles in style. Wine with bacon anyone? Available at Well Dressed Home for $16.95.
Bottle openers (pictured) – Start any party with these wooden bottle openers which puts the fun in functional! Consider these as a host or hostess gift, too, for any occasion. Also available at Well Dressed Home for $22.00 each.
Soiree Classic Premier In-bottle Wine Aerator – You don’t have time to let your wine breathe on its own? Well, this product is the answer to open up the aromas and flavors of your favorite vino! Used by those who know their wine, this wine aerator is consistently rated, “the best of the best”. And if Lettie Teague, Senior Wine Columnist for the Wall Street Journal, loves it, well then! You can find it at soireehome for $25.00.
Soiree Stopair – This wine stopper and preserver beg “pump me”! Just insert the Stopair into the wine bottle. After you have secured the fit, pump 10-15 times to remove excess air from the bottle. Ahhhh, another life extended! This other soireehome product is $19.99.
Wine Shield – It takes three steps to keep wine’s aroma and taste fresh for up to five days with this innovative product made from all natural food grade components and which is actually a “floating lid”! After the first glass is poured, use the provided tweezers to pick up a circular Wine Shield. Place the Wine Shield on top of the open bottle. With the tweezers, push the Wine Shield into the bottle, and it will settle on top of the wine. Protection which works – I tried it! Available at retail stores and online at Wine Shield, it’s $18.45 for a pack of fifty shields.
Magnetic Wine Charms – Not just your mother’s wine charms which can be challenging to say the least when wrapping them around the stem, these magnetic charms are a fun embellishment to click on your glass before you clink! From Simply Charmed, visit Simply Charmed for a variety of creative designs at a cost of around $14.00.
