When you think of wine bottle holders, you probably think immediately of wine racks and wine buckets. After all, those are the two most common items created to "hold" wine bottles. But if you're planning on giving a gift to a wine lover that isn't a bottle of wine, you can surprise and delight him with a wine bottle holder gift specific to his needs and interests.
Metal Wine Bottle Holders
Metal Imagination sells metal wine bottle holders that go beyond the ordinary: Their holders are sculptures and works of art in their own right. As of January 2010, their prices range from £18 to £65, suitable for different budgets.
Some of their designs include: a locomotive, a stock car, a rooster, a dog, a sailboat, the Statue of Liberty and Valentine lovers. They also have designs with holiday and religious themes, such as an elegant angel wine bottle holder. These wine bottle holders make great gifts because they allow you to incorporate another interest of the recipient into the gift, adding an extra personal touch.
Wine bottle holders also take the form of totes, which are more focused on utility than just design. Homewetbar.com has a "Platinum Wine for Two" tote that consists of an elegant divided case that holds one bottle of wine, two wine glasses, napkins, a corkscrew and a bottle stopper. Everything but the bottle of wine is included. These types of wine bottle holders are ideal for picnics, outdoor concerts, dinner parties, travelling and just about any other on-the-go occasion you can think of.
Other types of popular wine totes are sturdy canvas tote bags that hold up to four bottles of wine. These tote bags generally have plenty of space in the middle for extras like crackers, cheese, plates, utensils, corkscrews, napkins and wine glasses. These make a great gift for anyone who likes to have picnics or impromptu gatherings with wine.
Insulated Wine Holders
Does the your wine-loving gift recipient like to hike? Does she want to travel longer than 30 minutes before drinking her wine? If so, the wine won't retain its proper temperature for the most enjoyment. If this is the case, consider giving an insulated wine holder. Rhino Wine Gear has stylish insulated wine holders that range from the classic single wine bottle holder to wine bottle carriers and totes that can hold up to four bottles.
Insulated wine holders are affordable and often have a zipper and snap attachment to hold the chill inside. There also are pockets and spaces for other items such as cheese, corkscrews, napkins and wine glasses.
