Choosing a Wine Gift Basket by primusboy


									Choosing a Wine Gift Basket
During the holiday season, most of us are in a frantic search for
presents for loved ones and friends. Next time, instead of the usual
hassle of selecting a gift which will suit him or her, try sending a wine
gift basket instead. Wine gift basketsare a perfect present for both men
and women and suit every occasion e.g. Birthdays, Weddings etc. The
information below will help you select an appropriate wine gift for that
special occasion.
Who will be receiving the wine gift basket?
Men will prefer a bottle of wine, which they can open and drink
immediately or store in their own wine cabinet (The smile when he or she
unwraps the present to discover a 1990 Bordeaux is priceless) whereas
women are usually more delighted with a wine accessory e.g. Corkscrew,
Crystal Wine glasses or a decanter. Below are the four basic questions
you need to ask yourself before you shop for a wine gift.
What is the occasion?
Different wine gift baskets are suitable for various occasions. Wine gift
baskets are a favorite for parties. The numerous items within will allow
everyone to enjoy the gift and enjoy the wine with delicious tidbits as
well. Wine merchants also have wine gift baskets for special occasions
such as Valentine's Day, Christmas etc.
What is your budget?
Most nifty wine gift baskets can be had for $25-$50 although fine wines
will be more expensive. Wine gifts often include cheese and chocolates (a
favorite with children). Just remember it is the thought that counts!
What is their knowledge of Wine?
If the wine gift is for a beginning wine enthusiast, then a well-written
book on enjoying wine will be an excellent gift whereas an expert wine
enthusiast might enjoy having a stopper for the half empty bottle of
wine. Try to find a wine gadget that he does not already own, most people
will be touched by the thoughtfulness of your gift. The wine gadget will
also remind him/her of your friendship each time he enjoys a bottle of
fine wine.
