Gift Ideas for the Wine lover

My favorite time of the year is finally here…  The holidays!

There are so many things I love about the holidays. It goes without saying, time with friends and family is number one, but number two I think is all of the holiday decor, both inside and out.  Everywhere in our neighborhood, I’m seeing all the pretty Holiday decorations and light displays.  I cannot wait to get our lights up so we can join in the festivities too!

We’re actually moving at the end of the month and my first thought was, we wouldn’t put up our outdoor decorations this year since it is so much work to get all the lights up and then put them away when done. (And, all that on top of packing, will be a lot of work.)

But as everyone’s displays are going up around me, I’m feeling like the neighborhood Grinch!  So I’ve talked my hubby into putting up a scaled-down display for this year.

(Our yard display last year.) I’ve got a little tutorial on how to make these light trees coming up soo, so if interested, stay tuned for that!

The third thing on the list about the holidays?  All of the parties and gift giving!

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy receiving just as much as I love to give, but I especially enjoy the process of shopping for just the perfect gift!  Gifts for friends, family, relatives, neighbors, cousins, mailmen, teachers… you name it.  There’s no shortage of gift-giving opportunities during this time. And today, I want to share my very best tip for saving money on all your holiday shopping!

Whether you’re doing your shopping cozied up in jammies with your lap or hitting the streets and checking off your lists in the store I want to share my savings secret with you: I’ve been saving money on all of my holiday purchases by shopping with the Ibotta app!

Have you heard of Ibotta?

Gift Ideas for the Wine lover


So many of my friend and relatives are really into wine – and I have to agree, what’s not to love about wine?

From wine club subscriptions to gift baskets and wine accessories, I’ve got a great list of unique wine-related gift ideas that any wine lover or hostess would love, whether they are wine aficionados or not!

Gift Ideas for the Wine Lover

1. The easiest – purchase a premade gift Basket –

Sam’s Club and Wine.com have quite a few you’ll earn 2 to 2.5 % cash back.

2. Handmade and personalized wine-related gifts and accessories.

You can find these at Etsy.com, where you will earn 2.5% cash back.

A few ideas include:

  • personalized insulated wine tumblers
  • personalized “wine cellar” wooden signs
  • an engraved corkscrew set
  • custom embroidered wine bottle gift bags

3. A subscription to a monthly wine club/delivery or a selection of wines in a gift crate.

Find these at Wine.com and earn 2.5 % cash back.

4.  Make your own gift basket.

I love making gift baskets!  World Market is my favorite place to shop when choosing gourmet goodies for a gift basket.  You can currently receive 4% cash back, in-store only, just upload your receipt!

5. Fun Outdoor Accessories a wine lover would enjoy.

Right now, Academy is offering 4% cash back online.- We love to shop at Academy for all our outdoor related purchase (and sports gear.)  I spotted some fabulous Insulated Wine Tumblers in the prettiest colors on sale for $5.99.  If you are crafty, they’d be perfect to personalize with vinyl. (Either by hand or with a cutting machine.)

Or how about a yeti wine cooler?

I’m also eyeing a gas fire pit for our future sundeck.  (ok, I’ll stop shopping for gifts for myself, lol)

6. And of course, you can get anything you can think of from Amazon.

Corkscrews. wine tote bags, cute wine related t-shirts, pillows hand towels, cheese trays, wine coolers, stemware.  And you’ll get up to 10% cash back, depending on the department!
