Whether you’re looking for something to gift a wine enthusiast or a budding mixologist this year, we’ve got something here for you.

Best Gifts of 2018 for Cocktail and Wine Lovers

This holiday season, pamper the mixologist or wine aficionado in your life! From elegant bar tools, to (actually delicious!) pre-made cocktails, we've collected a range of items we'd be happy to give—or receive.

Rabbit Compact Bar Tools

For the aspiring mixologist on your list—this super-compact tool kit includes everything you need to turn out a proper cocktail, bundled up into this sleek, purse or pocket-ready case. A must for camping trips or vacation rentals.

The Mini-Bar: 100 Essential Cocktail Recipes

PUNCH is a noted authority on all things cocktail-related. This cute set, comprised of eight volumes, is organized by primary ingredients—by spirit, liqueur, or wine. If you’re looking to gift a cocktail recipe book, this one not only covers all of the essentials, it’s also just a darn cute accessory for any bar cart or tray.

Sagamore Spirit Cask-Strength Rye

Any mixologist worth their salt will love this rye to mix with—it’s got an assertive black pepper finish that adds richness and heft to a cocktail. Make no mistake, this is not a sipping whisky—it’s cask-strength, so it really needs other flavors to temper its bite. Try this Maryland rye from Sagamore Spirit in an Old Pal or other classic rye cocktails.

4-Piece Bar Tool Set

We love the rustic look of the contrasting handles on this bar tool set. The sleek design and two-tone coloring make this gorgeous—and functional—addition to any cocktail cart.This simple set is just right for someone starting out, and handsome enough for an addition to a veteran mixologist’s kit.

This bottle is a boon for the active wine drinker. We love that this keeps wine at just the proper temperature—and yes, it will hold an entire bottle of wine! Silicone grips on the bottom help guard against spills, but the super-tight lid also guards against them. The matching tumblers each hold a generous 10 ounce pour and will keep your wine or cocktails at optimum temperature for hours.

Chill Barware Tumblers

These elegant tumblers are just right for chilled digestifs or other cocktails. The marble base is an attractive and super-functional touch: they get stored in the freezer, and cleverly keep your cocktails cold, negating the need for ice that will water them down.

Pampelonne Sparkling Wine

This sparkling cocktail starts with wine from the sun-drenched Côtes de Provence region of southern France. These canned-for-convenience cocktails are a cut above the bevy of sparkling hard waters and cocktails that have recently made a splash. This fruity sparkler has nicely-defined notes of pear combined with a hint of cardamom, for a festive drink that even the most discerning of your cocktail-and-wine loving friends will enjoy.

Joss & Main Circa Bloody Mary Garnish Divided Serving Dish

For the host who's a true bloody Mary lover, this serving dish is essential for any festive brunch spread. The clever "in a pickle" fork is paired with the sectioned tray to make DIY bloodies as easy—and adorable—as can be.

PackIt's Freezable Double Wine Bag

Gift this handy cooler to your friend who insists on perfectly chilled wine. The wine carrier features freezable gel packs to keep wine chilled for hours, whether they're headed to the beach, a picnic, or on a weekend getaway. Bonus points for holding two bottles, and the convenient shoulder strap.

Rabbit Wine Chiller

The steel beverage cooler can keep any bottle of wine chilled for up to 24 hours. Any wine lover will appreciate this brilliant find any time they head to the beach, or out for a picnic. The cap also doubles as a bonus cup, so there's no need to pack glasses.


10 Cocktail Books That Make Great Gifts

Cocktail lovers can always use a new drink in their glass, a new recipe to try, new boozy histories to recount. So it's never a bad idea to give cocktail books for the holidays. But we understand, of course, that there’s not just one kind of cocktail drinker. So we’ve got categories to ensure you’re getting the exact right thing: Your friend who loves to lounge in his Eames chair, daiquiri in hand, would love Mod Cocktails, while your brother who wishes he worked behind the bar at Death & Co will love doing a deep dive into Cocktail Codex. Just make sure the ultimate beneficiary is you: insist on being invited over for drinks while they start testing the recipes in each volume.

The best wine gifts

Octopus wine holder

An eccentric wine bottle holder can become a table centrepiece in itself when cradling a bottle. This octopus is designed with a bottle in mind, and is sturdily built so that bottles can rest safely in its tentacles. The size means it’s an unobtrusive but eye-catching addition, even to small tables.

Upcycled wine bottle hydro herb kits

Fresh herbs are a game-changer for adding flavour and freshness to recipes. The novelty of an organic kitchen garden grown hydroponically in an upcycled wine bottle is marvellous, and there are nine herbs to choose from, including classic basil, mint and coriander. This innovative, wine-related gift will literally keep on giving.

Available from: Etsy (£19)

Moleskine passion wine journal

For those who like to savour every aroma, a wine journal becomes an archive of every bottle that has stirred the senses. Think of it as a diary – somewhere to record the grape, year, place and what it was paired with. A wine journal is a great gift for those who like to jot down tasting notes, are building their own collection, or associate memories with the drink they had at the time.

Available from:

Personalised grapevine gift set

For a wine lover who has everything, a pair of vines could be the perfect gift. British brand The Gluttonous Gardener selected two particular varieties, one white and one red, because of their ability to thrive in the UK’s fickle climate. They can even be grown in large pots. Just personalise the wooden crate with a name or personal message.

Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker

What’s the big deal about wine? When professional journalist and self-proclaimed amateur drinker Bianca Bosker discovers the world of elite sommeliers, she dives headfirst into the life where taste reigns supreme. Cork Dork is a witty retelling of her fervour-fuelled adventure that takes the reader from underground tastings to a Neuroscientists fMRI machine in her pursuit of the answer to that question.

Available from:

Ullo wine purifier

The Ullo contains four filters that help purify wine by removing sulfites and residual sediment. The former is a preservative widely used in winemaking that can cause allergic reactions in those who are sensitive. This little gadget simply sits on top of a glass, and also has an optional ‘aerate’ function for enhancing the flavour of reds.

Available from:

Dibor vintage embossed wine goblets

These are a cheerful choice for slow summer dinners, and would add colour to anyone’s glass collection. On a practical note, different coloured glasses also make it easier during dinner parties to distinguish what drink belongs to which person.

Uashmama wine holder

Uashmama creates durable and washable paper bags that make nifty kitchen storage solutions. This wine holder has a removable interior cooling pouch for sitting snugly around bottles, and a thick stitched leather handle. This would be a practical and plastic-free gift for minimalistic wine lovers.

Available from: Trouva (£28.99)

Nkuku Obra industrial wine rack

Rated the best freestanding option in our test of the best wine racks, the Obra, by sustainable brand Nkuku, is sturdy and durable enough to double as an extra surface in your kitchen, or side table in the living room. Smaller bottles and cans sit comfortably between wine bottles, so don’t consider its 12-bottle capacity its limit.

Available from: Nkuku (£180)

Recycled wine glasses

These unique wine glasses are also some of our favourite sustainable gifts, and are each a little unique as they’re hand-blown from recycled glass. The robust design is a nice alternative to traditional thin-stemmed bowl glasses, plus they’re dishwasher-safe for fuss-free cleaning. They’re available in green or clear glass.

Available from:

Le Creuset instant aerator wine pourer

Red wine decanters are decadent but not always practical, so for those times when pouring directly from a bottle into a glass, this two-in-one gadget should help that bottle of red breathe by aerating while you pour. Just push it into the bottle neck as you would a stopper.

Available from:

Corkcicle AIR wine chiller and pourer

When eating outdoors, it’s handy to not have to keep going backwards and forwards to the fridge to refill glasses. Resembling an icicle, this wine chiller is a slimline gadget filled with a non-toxic freezable gel that slots straight into an open bottle. The result is wine chilled from the inside out. Hollow in design, the wine will flow through the icicle once it’s inserted. Just make sure to give it a good clean between uses.

Available from:

Woven wine tote basket and glass holder

Wine glasses can be a tricky thing to transport for picnics and outdoor adventures because they don’t stack easily. A caddy like this could be the perfect solution to the problem. Six glasses and a bottle slot into the woven sections, so even if there are dregs remaining, all will remain upright in transit. All elements are made from handwoven water hyacinth, but the handle is wire-reinforced for sturdiness.

Ocean cocktail sticks

Cocktail sticks are a good way to serve nibbles like cheese and olives without getting dirty fingers. It helps that they’re smaller than traditional forks, too. This set of four is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.

Available from: Nordic Nest (£10)

Le Creuset wine cooler sleeve

Le Creuset claims that when stored in the freezer, its WA-126 cooler sleeve will chill a bottle from room temperature in 20 minutes. If the wine was chilled to start, this should keep it cold for hours. This could be a great addition to a backpack for picnic adventures, al fresco eating with friends, or simply on the side table in the living room. Available in black, burgundy, cerise, shell pink and volcanic orange.

Available from:

Barcraft zinc-fired glass champagne bucket

The swirling burnished design on this champagne bucket’s glass exterior is achieved by hand, with a zinc-firing process. The resulting effect makes it a nice contemporary alternative to the classic brushed champagne bucket.

Available from: Wayfair (£30)

Cathy’s monogram wood wine trough

For a cooler that’s a little more personalised, initials can be carved into the exterior of this rustic wooden drinks trough, perfect for holding three bottles of wine or a collection of beers and cans.

Available from: Nordstorm (£99.16)

Conundrum 1-litre decanter

The swirling design of this glass decanter has two practical functions. The first is to oxygenate your bottle of red as it’s poured in and out, and the second is to give you purchase on the decanter as you pour its contents into glasses. The result is a glass of red that should have an enhanced bouquet.

Available from: Wayfair (£27.99)

Vintage wine poster print

This vintage French liquor poster has been retouched and reborn into the kind of print that would sit quite happily in a variety of interiors. Sizes vary, and there’s the option to purchase it framed and ready for hanging.

Available from: Etsy (from £11.14)

Valley wine cooler

This is a little bit of the outdoors, inside. Carved from natural stone, the textured exterior remains untouched while the inside has been carved and polished to hold a bottle. Filled with ice, the stone’s density maintains the cooled temperature for hours. Like oysters? This is a great way to present them.

Available from: Nordic Nest (£55)

Wine cork letters

Wine corks make great keepsakes. Whether it’s from a favourite bottle, special occasion, or simply invokes a memory you don’t want to forget, saving them can feel important. So here’s a wine gift that’s also a way to display them. Letters are available in uppercase or lowercase.

Available from:

Distinctly Living red wine carafe with oak stopper

The broad bowl base and narrow neck of this glass carafe is a classic decanter design for aerating reds at room temperature. What sets it apart is the polished wood sphere that sits as a stopper for protecting what’s left from dust. Not only does this arrive gift-wrapped, it’s also an elegant bit of kit to have on the shelf.

Available from: Trouva (£27)

Marble wine bottle holder

Bottle holders needn’t be a boring wine gift. There are actually multiple benefits to having one – tables are protected from drip marks and wine-bottle rings, the bottle remains in a spot that can be reached by everybody, and it’s protected in part from spilling. Frankly, they can also enhance your tableware collection. This smooth, green marble bottle holder would be a simple and stylish table addition. Plus, it would look great holding a chunky candle.

Available from:

Personalised picnic table wine carrier

Some things taste better when eaten al fresco with friends. For wine lovers who enjoy the great outdoors, this nifty wine gift transforms from a food caddy to a low picnic table, and can be engraved to make it more personal – great for days when you’re not straying too far from the car or kitchen.

Available from:

Reclaimed wood bath caddy

These scaffolding planks have come a long way. With a stand for resting your book on, two notches for tealights and a slot for safely holding a long-stemmed wine glass, these bath caddies retain bags of character while fulfilling their new role. Choose from 70cm, 80cm and 90cm lengths and various features.


14 Gifts for Rosé Lovers

For those who consider "rosé all day" a lifestyle manifesto.

When rosé exploded onto the wine scene in the 2010s, many people viewed it as a short-term fad, but our love of the pink drink has continued and shows no signs of stopping. Whether you're a blush wine devotee yourself (and at this point, who isn't?) or just shopping for your favorite "yes way, rosé"-er, these rosé-inspired gifts offer plenty to raise a glass over.

Combine their love of rosé with their love of shoes in one perfect gift.

Inspired by the rich pink shades of rosé, these balms are the ideal shade for leaving lip prints on your glass.

Lauded sommelier Victoria James sets out this charmingly illustrated tome that includes everything you need to know about the history of rosé, the secrets to the perfect pairings, and even rosé recipes (because we all need more wine cocktails in our lives.)

This ruby balsamic from Napa is blended from new and older rosé vintages for a zippy tang and fruit-forward sweetness you'll want a splash of in everything.
