Knowing what a friend or loved one's interests and passions are really helps when it comes to choosing the right gift. This type of gift is also very thoughtful as it shows you took the time to consider their hobbies or passions. Gift ideas for wine lovers range from very inexpensive to very expensive, so there is something for every budget. You can also make great wine-related gifts for wine lovers.
One of the easiest to make gift ideas for wine lovers is a decoupage tray. Attractive wine labels are often available in the wine making section of a supermarket and you can find decoupage medium in a craft supply store. The finished tray can decorate a wall in a home bar and/or be used to serve wine to guests.
You could also put together a wine and cheese gift basket that features several bottles of wine and an assortment of cheeses, breads and maybe chocolates as well. Dessert-themed gift ideas for wine lovers could include sweeter wines and gourmet desserts such as fine chocolate and cheesecake. An alternative to giving bottles of wine, if you're not sure what kind to include, is to give a gift certificate so the recipient can choose his or her favorite wine. Monogrammed wine goblets are another great gift idea.
Books also make great gift ideas for wine lovers. You don't have to limit these to informational books only. Recipe books that include ideas for cooking with wine may be appreciated by those that love wine and love to cook. You can include a bottle or two of the wine called for in some of the recipes.
If you're looking for an elaborate gift for a loved one who is a wine lover, you can plan ahead and buy a rare bottle of wine. There are also wine of the month types of gifts available. Getaways to wine tasting weekends also make great gifts for wine lovers if you're looking for a larger gift. Even a day spent touring a winery that features a wine tasting may make a nice gift and you could follow it up with a great dinner and a fine bottle of wine.
