Although they say, nothing says you care more than a bottle of wine, thoughtfully gifting something other than a single bottle can be very rewarding. Everybody has Champagne love. They probably don’t need another bottle. What can a gift-giver do? Instead of giving a generic bottle, we have compiled a list of 10 gifts to make the perfect gift for the champagne lover in your life. See our selections and hear what experts have to say about them!
Best Overall: Riedel Veritas Champagne Glass
It is important to serve your wine in high-quality glassware no matter what wine you have. Riedel is a standout among a sea of glassware manufacturers. Known for their thinness, lightness, and varietal-specific stems, these durable-yet-impeccable glasses are beloved by consumers and industry folk alike. Veritas champagne glasses are unique in that they can be used both as flutes and eggs. This allows for maximum aroma release and bubble formation. Each glass measures 5 inches and is machine-blown in Germany from crystal. These delicate items are dishwasher-safe, but we recommend hand washing them.
Best Splurge: Petrossian Caviar
A tin of Petrossian caviar makes a great gift for the champagne lover who enjoys indulgence. Their caviar is available in only a few varieties. The company spent almost 100 years perfecting it. The poster is a great choice for those looking for something strong and legendary. Kaluga Huso is a good option for those who are more adventurous. A tin of Sevruga will satisfy anyone who wants something simple but delicious.
Vintage Champagne Poster: Best Wall Decor
This vintage Champagne poster will be a hit with champagne lovers who have an eye for decor. Inspired by Joseph Perrier’s wines, this bubbly poster will bring some character to any Champagne enthusiast’s living area or bar area.
You can choose from one of three frame options: Classic, Premium, Signature, or simply grab the print and pick a frame that will personalize it.
Best Budget-Friendly: Crate & Barrel Nattie Champagne Glasses
While most wine industry professionals would agree that egg-shaped flutes are the best for Champagne’s unique aromas, it’s not hard to see how simple flutes can add a celebratory touch to any home drinking session.
Crate & Barrel’s tulip-shaped glasses add a modern touch to the classic shape of glassware. Each flute is machine-blown in Slovakia and measures 1.75 inches. A six-pack costs less than $30. Gift-giving has never been so affordable.
Best Beauty Product: Caudalie Vinoperfect Skin Mask
Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Peel Mask is the perfect gift for skin-care-obsessed friends, family members, or loved ones. This corrective mask is natural AHA, vinifera, and glycolic acid. It promises to lighten dark spots, improve skin tone, and exfoliate the skin gently and in a reparative manner. Apply the mask, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse off with water. Caudalie suggests using the mask twice a week with other Vinoperfect products. We recommend using it in warm water with a playlist and your favourite bubbles. What could be more?
