Gifts for Wine LoversAccessories!! Who doesn’t love to accessorize and/or show of their devotion for our favourite grape-y beverage? I swear wine lovers are the easiest to buy for, even if you don’t know what they drink there are tons of ideas and gifts out there perfect for anyone who loves the odd tipple. I’ve come across some pretty cool wine-y things over the year so I wanted to share them with you all as I think they would make fab gifts!

Wine Club Subscription

tc-online-wine-club-box-3I know this is a bit of self-promo here, but hey I am darn proud to have my very own monthly wine tasting box going out to all my awesome subscribers. Basically I have teamed up with the guys from The Wine Gallery to curate a 3-bottle box each month – it’s on a month-by-month basis with no lock in contracts so you can stop it at any time. This action would not be advised though J For more info, check out my #thetcwineclub page.

Porta Vino Tumblers

Porta Vino Plastic Sparkling Wine TumblerWe actually bought a couple of these for around the pool at our old house. They make me laugh to be honest – a rather hilarious gift for the wine lover who loves the outdoors and/or is super clumsy and breaks glasses all the time. They are plastic and double walled to keep your vino cooler for longer. There is a ‘Porta-Vino’ for wine, ‘Porta-Sparkle’ for champagne or the ‘Porta-Brew’ for beer. I have spotted them in Myer for around the $15 mark – available nationally in Australia.

Kookery Wine Totes

Kookery wine toteI love these gorgeous cotton reusable wine totes from local Perth designer, Kookery. There are 5 different designs, these include:

  • Wine Not?
  • Life is a Cabernet
  • Once Upon a Vine
  • Have Wine Bring Cheese
  • Vote for Pedro Ximenez

Personalised Wine labels

TC Wine Tour Special Release Wine - Tylers VineyardYes you read that right! The team at Tyler’s Vineyard offer free label making for purchases from their cellar door in the Swan Valley but also for wines purchased online for delivery (they offer free shipping to anywhere in Australia!). Simply upload your photo to the online order form and then the team will send you some proofs to check over prior to printing and putting onto your wines.

Blanc de Bleu – Sparkling Blue Wine

Blanc de Bleu Sparkling Wine from California, USAI am putting this on here because I tried this blue fantasy-land wine a few years back and I recently saw it for sale in DeVine Cellars on Beaufort St in Perth.

So I expect you can find it in a number of places across Australia.

It’s $50 at DeVine Cellars. Read my Blanc de Bleu tasting note.

Wine Glass Phone Cover

Red Wine Glass Phone CoverIf you’ve bumped into me at events then there is no doubt you’ve seen my red wine glass phone cover! It’s so cool and always gets the conversation flowing when people see it.

Plus the best bit is I ordered mine off eBay for about $1o including postage! It did come from China, so it took a good couple of weeks, so order this one asap!

Wine Bottle Lamp

DIY Wine Bottle Lamp InstructionsThis one is for the creatives and handyman’s out there! Lucky for me I have a handy-man in the house, and the lovely Mr. Spittoon made me an absolutely gorgeous champagne bottle lamp this year with his own hands! As he was working away so hard, I did try to put a ‘how to make a wine bottle lamp‘ blog post together – it’s a lot harder than I imagined however Mr. Spittoon had great fun putting it together!

Wine Glass Pens

Wine Glass Writer PensI absolutely love my pens that write on my wine glasses but also numerous other things around the house – they are very versatile.

I spotted Just In Time Gourmet selling 3 packs of wine glass pens for $19 with shipping Australia-wide.

Proud Pearls Unique Wine Bracelet

Wine Jewelry by Proud PearlsI received my beautiful ‘champagne’ coloured bracelet as a gift and I adore it!

My one even has a little corkscrew on it which is very fitting! You can find out more about these lush wine bracelets here.

Tipsy – The Drinker’s Guide to Wine, Beer, Whisky, Gin, Sake & More

Tipsy by Clare BurderTipsy recently won the WCA Wine Book of the Year – which I am actually very eager to get my hands on too. It sounds great: “Full of savvy insider tips and handy shortcuts, this book is for anyone who’d like to know what they’re drinking without wading through the details. It’ll give you the background on your favourite drinks and explain the difference between pale ale and pilsner. It’ll help you pick wine for a posh dinner with your boss, or for a catch-up at that BYO dumpling restaurant. Full of the joy of adventurous drinking (and none of the snobbery), it might even awaken a new passion for whisky, gin or sake. Bottoms up!” Signed copies can be shipped from Melbourne for $30, find out more here.

Steady Sticks – Wine Glass Holders

Steady Sticks - Wine Glass Holders for PicnicsI have some of these myself and they are awesome for picnics and concerts.

Online store, Just In Time Gourmet has 2 packs of steady wine sticks for $25 a pop.

No Pain No Champagne Singlets

When i first spotted these champagne singlets by K Tee Designs on Etsy I had to have one! So what did I do? I bought two! And I love them dearly – they are my favourite workout singlets by far!

Tickets to a Wine Experience or Event

Who doesn’t love to go to a wine tasting masterclass, wine festival or wine and food matching dinner? Giving the gift of an experience can be very exciting and something out of the ordinary. All around Aussie there are fabulous wine events taking place every month. For those of you in Perth – I have a list of upcoming wine events in Perth and WA here for you.

Halliday Wine Companion 2017

Halliday Wine Companion 2017 from DymocksIf the wine lover you’re buying for is quite a serious wino then the latest edition of the Halliday Wine Companion is the gift you’re looking for.

It retails for $40 and is available from Dymocks stores nationwide and online here.

Christmas Hessian Wine Bags

Christmas Wine Bags - Do Not Open Until The 25th of DecemberThese bags are so cute if you are planning on gifting a bottle of wine to a very lucky someone this Xmas. There are 3 types you can get with the following sayings on:

  • Do Not Open Until 25th of December
  • Property of Santa’s Wine Cellar

Wearing Memories – Champagne Cap Jewellery

Wearing Memories Champagne Jewellery Cocktail RingI have had my Wearing Memories ring for a few years now and I love it.

It’s an awesome excuse to drink plenty of different champagnes – you should see my cap collection now! You can also buy necklaces, bracelets and more. Find out more about Wearing Memories here.

Wine & Champagne Quote Coasters

Wine & Champagne Quote CoastersAnother one from the team at Just In Time Gourmet – these wine coasters are so cute! They’ll definitely get people chatting with quotes like ‘this wine is making me AWESOME!’.

Rechargeable LED Wine Bottle Light

Rechargeable LED Wine Bottle LightI love this little gadget – it definitely brightens up the table at a dinner party.

It chargers simply by USB, which takes about an hour and a charge will last about 3-4 hours.

Vino Hero Wine Rack

Vino Hero Wine RackI love the funky design of this wine rack and the fact it’s pink too makes it all the more better! But don’t worry guys, if pink is not your thing, it also comes in black, copper, green, orange and yellow – find out more here.


There are soooo many ideas out there, this post is barely brushing the surface, if you do come across anything super cool make sure to post a pic to my FB page so we can all have a look and perhaps add it to our santa list this year!
