Each year, I struggle to find the perfect gift for those I care about. I spend countless hours scouring the internet or waiting for clues – only to be frustrated when the holidays sneak up faster than expected. As they always do. This year, I created a categorized holiday gift guide centered around those who might be on the receiving end of my gifting. So let’s get started with the first one – a gift guide for your beer and wine loving friends. Know anyone like that?

Top 8 Best Gifts for Beer and Wine Lovers
Do you have someone in your life who enjoys a good spirit? Here are our top picks for our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide : Best Gifts for Beer and Wine Lovers.
1. Beer or Wine Flights for Home Entertaining
One of my favorite things about going to a winery or brewery is being able to taste several different styles of wine. With the D’Eco’s Wooden Wine Flight and D’Eco’s Wooden Beer Flight, it’s easy to recreate a wine tasting party at home with your friends!
Whats nice is that these sets each come with four 6-ounce glasses and a chalk inlay – where you can write the drinks identification.
This makes a great gift for social friends who enjoy entertaining.
2. Wine Glass Charms
Do you know someone who has everything? Their home bar is completely stocked with all of the new gadgets already? This may be the gift you’re looking for!
Bliss Home has created two beautifully displayed wine charm sets that act as both a wine glass decoration but also as a glass identifier and icebreaker game! Choose from either the Hobby Wine Charms (Set of 6) or the Bliss Home Swarovski Wine Charms (Set of 12).
I always choose the passport charm (of course)! Which charm would you choose to represent yourself? Tell me in the comments.
3. Owl Beer Bottle Opener | Great stocking stuffer!
What is more fun than animal themed bar accessories? For the friend who likes to keep things unique, we found this Silicone Bottle Opener, Hootie by oenophilia! This fun little gift also comes in other designs such as an alligator or lobster. How cute!
What I love most about these bottle openers is that they are soft to the touch and easy to clean.
4. Magnetic Cheese Board
Cheese boards are a great piece to add to your entertaining collection and The CucinaPro Magnetic Cheese Plate is by far my favorite! It comes with a cheese slate that allows for chalk writing, plus, the slate is removable for easy cleanup!
What’s also fantastic about this cheese plate is the built-in magnetic strip that holds the knives – keeping them out of the way in a truly beautiful way.
Know someone who enjoys a beautiful holiday display at their parties? This is the gift for them!
5. Monogram Cork Collector
Do you have a friend who likes to collect things? This monogram cork collector from oenophilia makes a great gift! It’s personalized and practical.
Maybe they will even let you help them fill it up? Hint. Hint.
6. Wine Bag | Great Hostess Gift!
Not sure what to bring to the holiday party as a gift? My go-to is usually a bottle of wine – but that can get boring. . .
That is why I love these printed wine bags from oenophilia that have fun sayings on them.
How Merlot Can You Go? or Save Water – Drink Wine ( I think we’re ready to go to the party!)
7. Custom Maps Barware
Have you known someone for a really long time or share a special city or story with them? These custom map glasses from Uncommon Green can remind your friend of that trip you took together, your college years, or maybe a city where you both grew up in.
Not only are these glasses beautiful, but they are practical – and we like that.
Of course, mine glass is of Detroit. My favorite city.
8. Electronic Wine Bottle Opener
I am all for enjoying vintage housewares, except when it comes to opening a bottle of wine! It can be a real struggle! That is why these electronic wine bottle openers make a great gift. They look nice set up on a bar and easily remove the cork without pulling or twisting.
