By Rai Cornell
Whether you’ve been with your S.O. for decades or this is your first time celebrating the most lovey dovey day of the year, there’s no reason you can’t get the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
For all the wine lovers out there, here are the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas that will guarantee you torrent of grateful hugs and kisses.
Always On My Mind
On Valentine’s Day, there’s nothing more romantic than pouring your sweetheart a glass of wine and toasting to your long and beautiful union.
Keep your lover thinking of you every time it’s time to pop a bottle with this electric corkscrew. This gift says, “Baby, let me get that tough cork for you, you beautiful thang, you.” Not only does it make accessing the good stuff super fast and easy, but it comes with a beautiful blue glow that adds a modern, sophisticated accent to your kitchen.
For the Purist
You love your sweetheart for who she is, and your wine wants the same respect. Make sure your Valentine enjoys the same unadulterated taste of wine every time with the Coravin Model Two Wine System.
The beauty of this gadget is its ability to pour wine without removing the cork, thereby protecting the rest of your lovely bottle of wine from ever touching the air. This means you can enjoy a glass now and have it taste just as glorious as the glass you pour from the same bottle tomorrow.
As soon as wine comes in contact with oxygen, it begins to change flavor. That’s why VINEBOX worked obsessively to create a system of transporting its wines from bottles to vials without being exposed to air.
Pour Now, Save For Later
If your honey is a wine purist but you’re trying to keep your Valentine’s Day gift budget closer to the two-digit realm, this Savino Wine Saving Carafe does the trick like the pro gadgets with a bigger price tag.
Plus, it looks gorgeous on your counter or in the fridge. And who doesn’t love to give a pretty gift on Valentine’s Day?
Take My Temperature
While you and your sweetheart are getting snuggly this Valentine’s Day, remember that your wine needs to be at the right temperature, too. Whether you’re enjoying a bold glass of red, a crisp glass of white, or a spry bottle of champagne, each bottle has its own optimal drinking temperature that ensures you get the best out of every sip.
This minimalist yet sleek wine thermometer by Menu will tell you the precise temperature of your wine so you know just when to pop the cork.
