Wine Kitz Gift Guide – Part 1: Hostess Gifts

‘Tis the season for social gatherings!  If you’re looking for the perfect hostess gift for holiday get-togethers, we’ve got you covered.
On a budget?  No problem – we’ve got gift ideas for everyone on your list.

A bottle of wine makes a great hostess gift, but if you’re looking to add a little something extra, consider giving it wrapped in a canvas wine tote ($12.99).  Bonus brownie points if you include a pocket corkscrew ($1.99) in the front pocket – they’re always handy to have around!

Nuance Wine Finer

Hostess gifts don’t have to include a bottle of wine, of course.  Wine decanters (available at many home stores) also make terrific thank you gifts, as does the Nuance Wine Finer ($49.99), an all-purpose tool that acts as a pour spout, wine aerator and bottle stopper.  These tend to be very popular around the holidays.

Wine Away stain removerAnother extremely popular item is the
Wine Away stain remover
.  This product has been featured in over 40 different magazines, TV news spots and more, and has a strong reputation in the industry.  The 12oz. bottles make really great hostess gifts, because they’re so handy to have around, especially during holiday parties.  Click here to view a video of it in action (via YouTube).  This item will be arriving in-store next week, so be sure to call or stop by then to pick one up!

For something really unique (and eco-friendly!), glass tumblers or servers made from wine bottles are also sure to impress.  Check out Etsy stores BottleHood and bottlecrop for tons of neat gift items, including those featured below.  (Be sure to contact the shop owners to inquire about shipping rates and confirm holiday delivery – shipping can take 10+ days, so order early!)

BottleHood features lovely gift sets, such as this one with two tumblers made from recycled Pinot Grigio bottles, plates, and a serving tray made from a wine barrel ($49 USD).  They also have wine bottle serving trays, which are a lovely way to serve cheese and crackers or other hors d’oeuvres ($24 USD), votive candle holders (made from a wine barrel and Patron tequila bottle tops) ($40 USD), and much more.  Shipping takes about 10 days, so be sure to order early!
