’Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that’s a full month (31 days!) in which we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.
If you and your BFF are the types to spend Friday night binge-watching reality television shows while splitting a bottle of wine (or two), then we have to congratulate you—you're lucky to have found your true platonic soulmate. Given that she gets your love for a good glass of red and affinity for so-bad-it's-good television, she deserves a special gift, one that will remind her of the wine-fueled bond you two share.
From sassy bottles to funny accessories and wine-specific drinking games, here are 18 perfect gifts for the closest oenophiles in your life.
The 125 Collection, As Long As We Have Wine candle, $35, available at The 125 Collection.
This candle reads, "As long as we have wine, the holidays will be fine." No wiser words have ever been spoken. Bonus: The smell is heavenly.
Kuvée, Key dispenser, from $74.99 for dispenser and two bottles of wine, available at Kuvée.
We've previously raved about Kuvée, the high-tech bottle dispenser and wine club that will impress all your wine-loving friends. The start-up has now released its portable dispenser, so you can continue to impress them.
Karim Rashid, Champagne Sabre, $149.95, available at YLiving.
Is there any cooler party trick to learn than how to saber a bottle of Champagne? No, there is not. Your best friend will agree. Stock up on bottles as you both learn this art with this sleek stainless steel saber. (And, for your safety, it has a blunt blade!)
Sugarfina, Rosé All Day 3pc Candy Bento Box, $28, available at Sugarfina.
Help your friend live her best rosé-colored life with this set of Whispering Angel rosé-infused gummy candies.
STANDARD Wines, Mixed Starter, $49, available at STANDARD Wines.
The founders behind the genius (and sold-out) wine advent calendar most recently launched STANDARD, a company that offers consumers a high-quality option for wine-by-the-glass consumption. With this chic packaging and a guilt-free 6.3-ounce pour (for when you come home from that stressful work day), STANDARD will have your friend obsessed.
Stance x Rihanna, Saucy socks, $14, available at Stance.
Your friend loves wine (because duh). Your friend loves Rihanna (because duh). Your friend needs these socks.
Talking Tables, Prosecco Pong Classic Party Game, $24.99, available at Amazon.
Are you too bougie for a game of beer pong? Same. But what about Prosecco Pong? There's really nothing bougier than playing this game and bingeing on Bravo reruns. So, in other words, it's perfect.
J.Crew, "Shiraz" T-shirt, $36.50, available at J.Crew.
For your friend who will only drink red.
Veuve Cliquot, La Grande Dame Charlotte Olympia Edition 2006, $150, available at select fine wine and spirits stores.
This Veuve Cliquot x Charlotte Olympia limited-edition holiday gift box is made for your bestest fashion- and bubbly-loving friend. No, it's not cheap, but also, this is your best friend we're talking about, and, if she's anything like us, she will squeal over this La Grande Dame 2006 cuvée (one of the best from the brand!) housed inside a leopard printed box inspired by the quirky brand's signature Vanina clutch. Please, get it for her.
Quarterlane, Winter Fiction 06, $105, available at quarterlane.
Did you meet your friend at a book club where you drank and talked less about the book than you did about everything else? If so, surprise her with this book subscription box that holds four of quarterlane's seasonal favorites, and promise to meet up with her every month to talk about these books and drink some more wine.
Üllo, Wine Purifier, $79.99, available at Üllo.
Sure, you can get her a proper decanter, but who has time to wait for the entire bottle to empty out? Not you, ladies. This stylish purifier can be placed over an individual glass and will filter sulfites and sediments out, aerate, and bring the wine "back to its natural state."
Graf Lantz, Duo Wine Carrier Granite Felt in Tan Leather, $128, available at Graf Lantz.
A good friend brings one bottle of wine to a night in. A best friend brings two.
Corkcicle, Air+, $29.95, available at Corkcicle.
For the times you can't wait for that just-bought bottle of wine to chill (we get impatient when it comes to our wine, can you tell?), this corkcicle will not only cool down room-temp reds and maintain chilled whites at the perfect temperature, but also it will aerate the wine through a pour-through add-on.
Speak Wine, Adventure Malbec, $25, available at Speak Wines.
This wine company carries some laugh-out-loud funny labels making it perfect for your sassiest friend. Kill a bottle of this red and let "the adventure begin."
What Do You Meme?, Adult Party Game, $29.99, available at Amazon.
Is there anything more fun than an adult party game after your group splits a few bottle of wine? No. No, there is not.
Slant Collections, "Another, Please" Bell, $12, available at Shopbop.
Her partner/roommate/neighbor might stop liking you after you give your friend this bell, but we're obsessed and support its important function fully.
Hello Happy Plants, Champagne Is My Game Plant Holder, $52, available at ban.do.
If she loves her Mumm as much as she loves her plant babies, she needs this ASAP.
Winc, Classic Collection, $120 for four bottles, available at Winc.
If you're still at loss what to get her even after this guide, you can never go wrong with a wine box set (four bottles is better than one, after all) or a club. This company offers some of the most affordable ones out there.
