Christmas is coming whether we like it or not, so it’s time to get those thinking caps on for a spot of festive shopping.

Wine is often a fail-safe gift option, but instead of heading to the supermarket and picking up any old plonk for your Dad, boss or child’s teacher, have a look through our list of wonderful gifts for wine lovers.

Whether you’re ready to blow the budget, or are after more of a stocking-filler, we’ve got a thoughtful – and often delicious – gift that’s right for you and your loved one.

From exceptional fine wines to natural subscription services, party-ready coolers and expert-led (virtual) tastings, these gifts will put your hastily bought bottle of claret to shame.

There’s a lot of choice out there, so to make the cut we were looking for gifts that stood out for some reason – whether as a charming gift set, a chance to discover something new, or just plain brilliant value.

Here’s our round-up of the best gifts to make any wine-lover smile this year.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
