With the holidays fast approaching, my search for the perfect gifts has begun. I started looking for fun, inexpensive presents for all of my wine night accomplices. Although, to be honest, I might be buying doubles and keeping one for myself!
Check out these wine night accessories that won’t break your bank.
These Camille Wine Glasses from Crate & Barrel ($12.95 each) are a must. I prefer large goblets for my wine—some days, a dainty glass just won’t do!
Wine charms are a great way to keep guests from accidentally swigging from your glass. These handmade silver charms with ”cheers” in six languages from Etsy ($20) are simple and classic.
For me, cheese selection without a proper board is about as absurd as a wine night without cheese. This sleek Slate Cheese Board from MoMa ($32) provides the perfect platform for your fromage. Since it’s slate, you can use chalk to label the different varieties.
College is over, so magazines, text books and other make-shift coasters aren’t going to cut it anymore. These Crackled Coasters from West Elm ($14.99-19.99), add a brilliant splash of color to your coffee table.
Kick wine nights up a notch by ditching the bottles and storing your wine in a decanter. This Glass Wine Decanter with Oak Stopper by Red Envelope ($39.99) has a beautiful design, and you can personalize the gift with your friend’s initial.
I have these Rabbit Wine Bottle Stoppers from Macy’s ($7.99) in my own kitchen and I love them! Whenever I leave a wine night with an unfinished bottle or simply open a bottle at home for a single glass, these wine stoppers make sure the rest doesn’t go to waste. There is no sense in throwing out a perfectly good sip of wine!
