Which means that we can now officially start singing Mariah Carey at the top of our lungs and talking about CHRISTMAS (and you can't stop us)🎅
We know that it can be hard to find unique presents from people that aren't Amazon. So we've done our very best to round up gifts for your favourite wine lover including a few from small and independent businesses ❤️
The recommendations range in price, and we don't receive any commission if you buy these, we're just spreading the small business cheer.
1. Words with Wine Gift & Subscription box (from £25)
Books and wine🍷📚 We can't really think of a better combination - can you?
Words with Wine are the fist wine and book subscription available in the UK. Every month they
They offer a number of purchase options including: one-off, gift boxes and subscriptions. So you can choose whichever options suits the budget for whoever you are buying for.
They've also got a beautiful, limited edition Christmas box which will be on sale throughout November and December. This includes a bottle of wine, a book, a limited edition candle from The Wild Glow, and a bath bomb from Melrose Candle Co.
Order your Words With Wine box here.
2. Marchtown Shop & Wine Club (price varies)
Marchtown is my absolute FAVOURITE Glasgow wine spot. So, much so that pretty much every Christmas and birthday gift I got last year was from there.
They started as the hottest wine bar in town, and over lockdown did a little pivot to become an off-licence and online wine club.
If you're in Glasgow then we can't recommend Marchtown enough for all your wine & beer needs. You can pop in and choose from a selection of wines of varying prices.
If you're a little further afield then fear not, you can gift their wine club subscriptions, or you can choose from their gift hampers.
3. Cool Story Co. Insulated Wine Bottle (from £35)
Yeah, sorry of course we had to mention ourselves🤷♀️
Our insulated flasks hold a full bottle of wine (750ml) and keeps it cold for 24 hours (or hot for 12 hours - hello mulled wine🍷 ).
Each bottle comes in a beautiful cylindrical display box, so it's perfect for under the Christmas tree 🎄
They are ideal for boujee picnics, a trip to the beach or just lazily sitting on the couch so you don't need to move.

4. Coravin - Wine Preservation System (from £119)
This one is a little more on the pricey side - but we think it's definitely worth it. Plus it will save you loads of wine (good for your bank balance and the planet 🌎
I know not finishing a bottle of wine is a crazy concept.
But there is nothing worse than fancying one glass of wine and knowing the rest will get wasted if you don't drink it that night.
This unique preservation system from Coravin helps keep an opened bottle of wine fresh for up to years (depending on which option you go for).
They have options for keeping standard wine fresh as well as sparkling wine.
The Wee Wine Club (from £27.99)
The laid-back wine club that will help you discover wonderful new wines.
They offer tasting boxes, with a pre-recorded masterclass to help you discover some delicious new wines.
Or, if you are still working remotely, or are not able to see your friends or family this Christmas then their virtual (or in-person) wine tastings are the perfect zoom night with a difference.
They'll be launching some limited edition Christmas tastings in the next few weeks, so keep and eye out for them.
6. ThinK Wine Group (from £16.95)
More into sparkling wine or prosecco?
Then ThinK wine has to be on your gift giving list this year.
ThinK wine has a reduced sugar quantity, is 100% vegan, organic and of course, DELICIOUS.
The perfect drink to toast the holidays, or bring in the new year with.
