For some, it is nicer to give them than to receive them, while for others it is a nightmare. What is certain is that gift-giving is serious business. Let's take a look at the reasons why giving wine as a gift is the perfect choice, and not just at Christmas.
Christmas is approaching and the time for presents is always significant: besides the gift, it tells of the time spent choosing it, the thoughts and choices made... In a word, of the effort put in. Here are all the reasons to give wine at Christmas.
Wine brings joy
It is still one of the world's most convivial products: it brings people together, gathers them around the same table, lowers barriers and warms conversations
It is consumed but lasts in the memoryWine is truly a unique product: it has the concreteness of things that are consumed but so many nuances and implications that one can talk about it for decades. This is why great occasions are sealed with important toasts.
It is a classic and sought-after gift at the same time
A bottle of wine can be both a timeless gift and the result of research and attention to refinement. In a word: it always surprises.
For all budgets
It is difficult to find a gift that can range so widely in price: from the simplest – bottles - designed to accompany aperitifs and joyful lunches - to the most expensive, challenging and timeless ones.
Gift a product but also a story
Every bottle contains a story, both oenological and entrepreneurial: it comes from a precise territory and from the hands of people who have made many choices and worked hard to produce it. All this can be found inside the glass, and we at Sommelier Wine Box are convinced that it must be told, for a truly informed tasting.
Wine expresses the essence of territories
Wine is the perfect gift because it encapsulates the excellence of the country where it is produced, including the variety and number of wineries and different territories, care and attention to quality, especially if you choose artisanal products.
Save time with online services
Does picking up presents in person waste your time? If going around shops is not your favourite activity, there are many online services for buying wine: from classic e-commerce with a catalogue, if you already know what to buy, to services such as ours to receive bottles from niche wineries selected by expert sommeliers, built around the tastes of the recipient. Here you will find all our proposals.
It is a gift that can last
Giving bottles that arrive at home month after month is one of the many advantages of online wine clubs, such as ours: it allows the gift to last as long as you wish.
How many bottles to give?
Of course the number of bottles to gift depends on your budget, but there are guidelines to keep in mind.
Fewer bottles but more good ones.
If you want to give a gift of substance and also of scene, 3 is the perfect number.
If you opt for a bottle, it should be sought after.
Other future gifts can be associated with it, including accessories
Again, for those who like to give gifts that continue over time and to be linked with further gifts: wine is linked to a whole series of accessories for its correct opening and tasting that can be given together or at a later date: from the drip saver to the right glass, from the decanter to the coveted wine cooler.
You can play with customisation
Every wine has its own character: giving one rather than another allows you to personalise the card by playing with the recipient's character.
And with some new services, you can gift personalised selections. Try Sommelier Wine Box!

It can be given as a gift
Given that there are no right wines and no wrong ones, if you just can't guess the recipient's taste (impossible to go wrong with our customised route!) he will only have to give it as a gift in turn. And believe us: he will do it with satisfaction 🍾
It will easily be uncorked in your presence
