Christmas wine to give as a gift
Maybe you’re a last minute Christmas shopper, maybe you forgot someone on your list, or maybe you’re looking for that perfect wine to give as a gift. Regardless of the reason, you’re about to join the long tradition of people who buy wine as gifts for Christmas!
Wine can make a perfect gift for a range of people, whether it’s for inclusion in personalised hampers, your employees at work or a limited edition bottle for your wine aficionado family member or friend. Before purchasing your wine as a gift, ideally you should know the person’s taste preference, whether they prefer full-bodied or light, dry or sweet, New World or Old World. If all else fails and you’re not sure what to choose, we at Hennings Wine will help, we have a full range of ideas and inspiration to help you find that perfect gift.
Hampers make a great gift and because you can tailor them to suit the individual they are perfect for almost anyone you know. For a wine lover, there can be no better gift than a hamper full of different wines from around the world, and the assortment makes opening the gift a fun and special time for the recipient.
At Hennings Wine we suggest that you do your research and ensure you know the receiver’s wine preference. If you aren’t lucky enough to know the recipient’s tastes why not include a selection of red, white and rosé wines from differing countries and regions? To go that extra mile with your hamper selection, you could always add sweet and savoury Christmas food treats that pair well with your chosen wine. These treats could include: cheese and crackers, festive mince pies, chocolate and roasted nuts.
