Tis the season! Wedding season that is. Since so many people now live on their own before they get married, they are well-stocked with plates, silverware and linens. So instead of going the usual “registry” route, we often look for something really worthwhile to give, and wine gifts are definitely worthwhile.
At Wine.com, we have a few options to impress the happy couple. First, wine clubs. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and we have three excellent options:
- Discovery Tour – an entry-level club designed to introduce wine lovers to the most popular grapes and regions of the world. Each month has a different theme.
- Wines of the World – my personal favorite, this club helps wine lovers expand their palate, tasting incredible wines from all over the world – some more well-known, others slightly off-the-beaten-path.
- 90 point rated – the club for the connoisseurs who love wines that are age-worthy and top-quality. This club delivers two red wines each month, some worthy of a while in the cellar, others very drinkable right now, but aptly suited for fine dining.
Each of the clubs are available month-to-month, but for wedding gifts, we recommend giving a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription.
In other gifts, we highly recommend:
Wedding Milestone Trio - put together after many requests for wines that would be appropriate for opening on specific anniversaries, the Wedding Milestone Trio has three wines, one for the first anniversary, one for the third and one for the fifth. One bottle of bubby & two reds. High quality wines, each meant to celebrate and enjoy wedding milestone anniversaries.
Wedding Bells, Dom Perignon, & Godiva Truffles Gift Set – who doesn’t love bubbles and chocolate? Right at a very popular wedding gift price point, this gift is a bit of luxury for the couple to share, and absolutely appropriate for the couple who already has everything!
Decanters – A decanter is such a great gift as it is something people rarely buy for themselves. Decanters not only come in handy for aerating wine, but they are beautiful to serve any wine in, whether it needs aeration or not. It’s like giving crystal, but these decanters are more modern and sleek and will be more likely used on the table.
So branch out from the typical registry and surprise the newlyweds with some good vino gifts to get them started.
