Want to give your wine lover the gift of sharing? With the ALLCAMP Insulated Wine Tote Bag, they can not only take two bottles of wine to parties, picnics, or the beach, but they can share with a plus one—the kit comes with two acrylic wine glasses, two wine glass stakes (to put in the ground to stop the glasses from tipping), and two cloth napkins. There’s also a corkscrew and bottle stopper all inside the insulated carrying bag. If you want more portability (and the ability to hold two additional bottles of wine), check out this Kato Insulated Wine Carrying Bag

Wall Mounted Metal Rack: Soduku

The Soduku Wall Mounted Metal Wine Rack is a multifunctional gift that holds glasses and wine bottles, is great for decoration, and you can use the little drawer to hold accessories (like your cork screw) or fill it with corks . The rack can store from 1 to 5 bottles, but upright storage isn’t ideal for long-term storage of bottles with natural corks so either drink the wine fast or use this more for decoration—maybe even even pair your empty bottles with the neat bottle lights coming up next on our list. Aside from holding wine bottles, accessories, and corks, the rack features a simple wine-glass holder on the bottom to store your glasses.

Wine Bottle Lights: LoveNite

Most of the gifts here, even the decorative shelf above, are also highly functional. The LoveNite Wine Bottle Lights are purely decorative but a great gift for the wine lovers who keep their bottles for decoration. Rather than toss a bottle in the recycling bin you can simply put these LoveNite strings of lights into the empty bottles and turn them on for a beautiful DIY project. There are 10 white LED bulbs on a 40 inch long copper wire. Each wire in the pack of 10 is connected to a cork that has an on and off switch, so you can decide when to light up your bottles.

Wine Decanter: Le Chateau

Does your wine lover throw dinner parties? Why not get them this Le Chateau Wine Decanter to elegantly decorate their dining room table, conveniently help guests pour themselves wine, and even enhance the taste and smell of whatever they’re serving? Pouring wine from its bottle to the decanter enhances taste by oxygenizing the wine and releasing the aroma and flavor. And even when Le Chateau isn’t in use, it will be a great decoration or centerpiece.

Wine Aerator: Andre Lorent Vinluxe PRO

If you want flavorful wine that’s been oxygenized, but you don’t want to pour the whole bottle into a wine decanter like the Le Chateau, check out this wine aerator that will oxygenize a single glass of wine by pouring from the bottle, through this aerator, and into your glass.

The Andre Lorent Vinluxe PRO Wine Aerator aerates faster than a decanter. Why aerate? The premise is that rapid exposure to the air as provided by the aerator helps improve the flavor of wines (especially young red wines with sharper flavor). With this aerator you can buy younger (and usually cheaper) wines and enjoy improved flavor.

Stainless Steel Outdoor Wine Tumbler: Drinco

It’s hard to find wine glasses that are durable and don’t make your hands slippery when you’re having some wine outside. The Drinco Stainless Steel Wine Tumbler is vacuum insulated and stainless steel to help keep your wine at the proper temperature.

This wine tumbler also prevent sweat on the sides and the textured exterior ensures they aren’t slippery like other wine glasses. Forget about breaking another wine glass—the Drinco Stainless Steel Wine Tumbler is durable, shatterproof, and chip-resistant, so you can use it outside without fear of knocking it over.

Electric Wine Opener: Secura

Never struggle with a typical corkscrew ever again—just place the Secura Electric Wine Opener on top of the wine bottle and hold the button down so the corkscrew automatically pulls the cork out of the bottle. With other corkscrews, you may damage the cork or lose pieces in the wine if you slip up or put the corkscrew in at an angle. When the Secura is held above the cork (natural or synthetic), it will effortlessly pull the cork clean from the bottle. The clear bottom makes it easy to line up and the included base both recharges it and keeps it handy and displayed neatly (along with the included foil cutter).

Wine Bottle Glass: Guzzle Buddy

For the perfect (and funniest) gift for wine lovers, get them the Guzzle Buddy Wine Bottle Glass. Eliminate a step in the wine-drinking process by screwing this wine glass into the top of the bottle and tilting the bottle to drink out of the glass. Who needs to decant, rest, and sip the wine when you can just pour it right through the stem of a perpetually refilling glass. Help your wino friends out by getting them the Guzzle Buddy to let them drink out of the bottle in style.

Wine Candle: Wooden Wick

Want to give a gift to your wine lover that isn’t necessarily about drinking wine? Try the Wooden Wick Recycled Wine Bottle Candle! The glass is made from a cut wine bottle, and there are different wine-related scents to choose from. This particular candle has the scent of Pinot Grigio.Other scents are available, such as Cabernet, Champagne, Chardonnay, Merlot, Mimosa, and several more. The Wooden Wick Candle not only smells great, but also lasts about five hours.
