If the gift recipient is a mild to avid wine lover, it is hard to go wrong!!
Overall, wine basket gifts are a wonderful gesture.
Yet, whether it is wine or a wine-related item, selecting the right present still requires care.
This is particularly true when a bottle or case of wine is involved.
A gift of wine is endearing, but it also requires awareness in making the most appropriate selection...let's start that process below!
Selecting a bottle of wine may be complicated, especially if the individual is one you do not know very well...so let's brainstorm how to find the perfect wine gift:
These are factors you should keep in mind when making a wine selection:
While wine makes a quality gift, it is helpful if you know the person and his or her taste in wine first.
Another potential option is to talk to a friend of the individual. He or she may have the right information to help simplify your wine shopping.
TIP: If none of these approaches is possible, play it safe with a quality dessert wine!
Often, a bottle of wine as a gift does not arrive solo.
For many special events, wine gift bags or wine gift baskets are common.
These frequently contain several wine-related items.
Attractive wine accessories, such as designer corkscrews or crystal decanters, are common additions.
Various types of other food may also comprise part of a wine gift basket e.g. cheese or seafood.
Whenever in doubt, the resolution is simple...can you spell....
.....g-i-f-t c-e-r-t-i-f-i-c-a-t-e? :-)
This is an uncomplicated solution.
It also ensures individuals obtain exactly what they need or, at least something that matches their taste in wine.
When it comes to celebrating a special occasion with a gift, wine says it all. Vintage wine is often the most common and indicated choice.
Consider the following match-ups when purchasing wine for a birthday, wedding anniversary, and retirement party or an election campaign win:
For the New Year, Champagne is always in order.
A wedding is fashionable with champagne or a New World sparkling wine.
For Christmas, mull over one of several potentials – perhaps one of the seasonal wines, a mulled wine or a late harvest Vidal Blanc. Wine, after all, does have its season.
Wine is an elegant gift that expresses thoughtfulness and reflects the taste of the sender and the receiver.
Whether it is a fine red wine, a crisp clear white or a cheery red rosé, do take care to pick wisely.
Choose for the special individual and/or to mark the special occasion.
