The Flirty Decanter
Every true connoisseur of wine knows the importance of aerating her reds, and thus a decanter is an essential addition to her bar cart accessories.

The Classic Set
For the classic lady who prefers the simple things, opt for the basic but chic wine decanter set that will exude pure elegance. The presentation of wine on a dinner table has never looked better, with the blown glass and oak stoppers—it’s as if we almost forgot they were holding wine. Almost. The red wine carafe holds 67 ounces of wine, while the white wine carafe holds 34 ounces so in other words: Time to drink up!

The Wine Lover’s Dream Come True
For the ultimate gift for the wine-lover on your list, can you ever go wrong with gifting her a bottle of the good stuff? However instead of giving her a bottle of her favorite brand from your nearest liquor store, step it up a notch this year when you give her a wine subscription. You can choose from three different dozen packages, specializing in whites, reds, or a mixed selection that will please those who simply love it all. The package comes with expert serving advice and pairing tips, with a new arrival of wine on your doorstep every three months. It truly is the gift that will keep on giving.

The Scent of A Glass
Give her the gift of delicious aromas brewing up within the four walls of her home with the Rewined Candle. The candle collection is wine-inspired to burn off scents that rival that of her favorite glass of Pinot Noir. With 13 different scents to choose from, you can give her a taste of Champagne with sweet notes of white grape, honey, and light citrus or the medium-bodied scent of Merlot with the bold aromas of violet and rose taking the show away. Pair this lit candle with a glass of her favorite wine, and we can’t guarantee that she’ll ever leave the couch. Give her some gourmet popcorn as a bonus, and consider yourself on official #BestGiftGiver status. Also, can we be your next recipient?
