4 Must-Buy Wine-Inspired Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine's Day

Spice Up Your Life This Valentine’s Day

By Gerrard Roberts


Valentine’s Day is almost here, so it’s time to get into your romantic side. Holiday shopping can be exhausting. What do you get the person who has everything? How do you ensure your gift idea isn’t played out? How do you avoid breaking the bank? Start with what you know about the person you are giving a gift to. Reflect on their hobbies to better understand how they enjoy spending their time. If you need to become more familiar with their hobbies, take a quiz to learn their love language. Whether you are spending the day with someone special or celebrating a party with one, here are some tips to get you in a sentimental mood.


1. The Gift of Stories – We’re Going to Need More Wine

Most advertisements for Valentine’s Day gifts will be material possessions. Whether it be a new piece of jewelry or a luxury piece of clothing, these gestures have the potential to keep your connection on the surface level. However, you may want to go deeper in your relationship. In that case, a more intentional present to give is prioritizing your partner’s self-care journey. Gifting a book can create a therapeutic experience, allowing the reader to wear someone else’s shoes, let out an ugly cry, or have a deep belly laugh. Gabrielle Union’s We’re Going to Need More Wine is a collection of stories that can provide the emotional reset you or your partner may need. Speaking of wine, one of Gabrielle’s favorite wines is a Chenin Blanc, developed by her husband, Dwyane Wade. 


2. The Gift to Impress, Estelle Colored Glass

Next, if you or your partner enjoys receiving gifts, aim to pick out something with a constant value. Everyone wants to feel like they received a unique gifting experience, something that caters to their interest and adds value to their everyday life. Stephanie Summerson Hall has developed an elegant line of glassware that was inspired by her grandmother Estelle. Affectionately known as “Big Mama,” Estelle was known for traveling through South Carolina, searching for the best antiques to add to her collection. Inspired by that, Estelle Colored Glass features luxury hand-blown colored glass stemware and cake stands that make any occasion grand. 


3. Say It, Don’t Spray It with Wine Condoms

If you’re looking for a real conversation starter with your wine, whip out a Wine Condom. It’s an alternative to a wine stopper and comes in a gold foiled square pouch that will get you both talking. Interestingly enough, this hilarious product was inspired by a joke by a mother and son-duo, Mitch Strahan and Laura Bartlett. Known in Dallas, TX, for creating laughter in comedy clubs, Laura is the founding member of an all-female stand-up comedy group Four Funny Females


4. It Takes Two DIY Date Activity

Sometimes you spend a lot of energy searching for the perfect item to purchase when everything you need is right in front of you. Home is where the heart is and can also be a sanctuary. It’s essential to consider your and your partner’s social habits when celebrating a holiday. Could one of you be tired from a busy job or family responsibilities? Is the rent too dang high, and the monthly budget needs updating? Either way, there’s a plethora of at-home DIY date activities that can create a special moment that can last a lifetime. Here are a few to get your creative mind thinking. 

  • Wine Cork Date Idea Activity
  • Board Game Night for Two
  • Make Dessert Together
  • Create a Picnic in the Backyard
  • Take a Bubble Bath Together
  • Start a Puzzle Together
