Is it time to shop for that special someone that is turning 50? Are you looking for that perfect 50th wedding anniversary gift idea and find yourself stumped? Have you considered giving the gift of wine? The person or couple does not have to be an aficionado of wine, so to speak, but if they enjoy a glass of wine every now and then, it is time for you put together a wonderful wine gift.
...if they enjoy a glass of wine every now and then, it is time for you put together a wonderful wine gift.
You have many options when creating a wine gift. Although it can be pricey, you can visit a winery and pick out the very best available bottle. It helps to know the type of wine the receiver enjoys the most. Many people are particular about the wine they like; if they are fond of dry wines, getting them something fruity will be a waste of your money. I know that it is the thought that counts, but if you are going to spend the money on a really fine bottle of wine you will want to be sure you've chosen something they will enjoy.
Another 50th gift idea to consider is to find a wine that was bottled in the year that the person was born or the year the couple was married. Whether they drink it or not, it is a very special gift that will be cherished by the recipient. If you are looking at wine for a 50th wedding anniversary and are unable to find a wine that was bottled in that year, you may be able to find the wine they used to celebrate that glorious day with.
You can create a really awesome wine gift box yourself...
You can also create a wine gift basket. You can create a really awesome wine gift box yourself, or there are many that are already created and are just waiting for you to order them. You can make a wine basket that is filled with excellent wines from the couple’s favorite winery, or favorite type of wine.
A wine gift basket does not have to be filled with just wine. There is an assortment of things that go along with wine that can be included: a nice set of wine glasses, fresh fruit such as grapes and strawberries, crackers and cheese, maybe a picnic blanket. Chocolates make a very nice accompaniment to certain kinds of wine.
...consider a a wine-of-the-month membership.
If you want to give a gift that is going to last beyond the couple enjoying that one bottle, consider a 50th gift idea such as a wine-of-the-month membership. This will definitely impress the couple or your special someone who is turning 50. This lets them know that you care about them not only on their special day, but all through the year.
A gift of a wine-a-month membership will let the couple enjoy a new wine each month. This will help them improve their palate, allow them to try something they otherwise wouldn’t have tried, and think of you each time they pop the cork on a new bottle. Maybe they will even invite you over to enjoy a bottle with them.
If you are shopping for a true wine connoisseur then you will want to think more along the lines of fine wine and the accessories that go with it. Wine racks are great, but having a refrigerator that is specifically designed to keep the wine at the perfect temperature and in the proper position so the wine is not ruined over time would be a wonderful gift for the wine enthusiast.
There are many options to consider when you are thinking of 50th gift ideas for the wine connoisseur. Whether for a couple or an individual, enjoying a glass of wine can turn any occasion into a special event.
