Spirits, Wines & Wine Gift Basket Ideas at Christmas
Some tips to keep in mind:
The relationship you have with your recipient should be taken into account first and foremost. Is the wine gift for your boss? Just because your boss is a wine lover, he might not appreciate a Prosecco or a pink Moscato. So consider the relationship that you have – is it personal or professional? Also, take the occasion into account as well. A bottle of Champagne as a gift for someone who has been sick with the flu isn’t really a very thoughtful gift.
If you know of a particular label that he or she already loves, play it safe! Why take a chance when you already know what will make them happy? If you’re unsure of their particular wine tastes, try to gauge what they might like at a very base level. When you saw them at that Christmas party, were they drinking red or white wine? Asking a close friend what they like is also a good idea.
Christmas cocktails are great, and so are big batches of sangria Christmas punch, but sometimes you just want to sit back and uncork a bottle of wine. If you're planning your own Christmas menu (which, in our opinion, isn't complete without wine), it can be time consuming trying to find the right type of wine or champagne to go with your meal.
