These Gifts & Gadgets Take Wine Drinking To The Next Level

If you have a wine lover in your life, we have a unique collection of gifts to impress them with this Christmas. We have everything from quirky corkscrews to include in a stocking, to larger gifts such as stylish carafes. So worry no more if you’re struggling with what to buy your wine appreciator this year, we have a gift for everybody.

For the wine sophisticate...

Decanting pourer and corkscrew

If you’re looking for the ultimate treat for the wine connoisseur in your life, impress them with the Decanting Wine Pourer and Waiter's Friend Corkscrew from Menu. The pourer features a specially patented design that pours, filters and oxygenates the wine as you pour...but don’t worry if you have no idea what this lingo means, we’re sure your vino connoisseur friends will, especially if they’re as knowledgable about wine as they say they are!

wine breather carafe

Treat them to a gift with wow factor this Christmas and impress them with The Wine Breather Carafe from Menu. It matures and softens wine as much as several months in as little as two minutes. It also breathes wine in an instant, enabling ready to drink wine to be enjoyed immediately. It’s the perfect gift for if your wine lover received a bottle (or two) this Christmas that they can’t wait to crack open.

If you’re looking for a gift to provide a solution to the age old problem of what temperature to serve wine, the award winning Corkcicle Wine Cooler offers a unique way to chill wine from the inside the bottle.

Corkcicle wine cooler

As the wine fanatic in your life will know, the temperature of a wine can truly affect its taste. Wine left out becomes warm, tasting too much like alcohol, yet wine left in an ice bucket becomes too cold with no flavour. The Corkcicle can both chill and aerate wine for up to an hour.

Intrigued as to how it works?

If the wine lover in your life prefers White Wine or Rose, the Corkcicle Wine Cooler can be placed in the freezer for an hour, then into the bottle of wine to keep it cool for up to an hour, or until the bottle is finished.

Alternatively if they're partial to a glass of red wine, the Corkcicle can be left in the freezer for 15 minutes before being placed in that much loved bottle of Merlot, Shiraz or other red delights, it will slightly cool the wine whilst enhancing its flavour.

For the wine-lover with an eye for design...

Alessi bolly wine cooler

If the wine lover in your life has an eye for design, the purity of the Bolly Wine Cooler from Alessi makes for not only a practical but also stylish gift. Jasper Morrison's sleek design is made from mirror polished stainless steel and makes for a sophisticated alternative to classically shaped coolers.

Moya champagne flutes

Perfect for enjoying a glass of fizz over the festive period, each of these Moya Champagne Flutes from LSA flute is mouth-blown by skilled artisans. The tapered waist  flares out to a sturdy base, creating an elegant silhouette. Ideal for a New Year's Eve toast whilst looking great on the dinner table.

For the collector of novelty wine instruments…

Perfect for parties and celebrations throughout the festive season, the Ours & Mine Charms & Stopper is great for all occasions. The 6 coloured charms hug the stem of the wine glass - perfect for the tricky task of trying to find your glass amongst others at a festive celebration.

Ours mine wine charms and stopper

This Alessi Alessandro M Corkscrew  has been designed by Alessandro Mendini and has been created as part of the company's partnership with (RED) to raise awareness and funds to support the global fight against AIDS.

With the sale of each piece Alessi contributes a portion of the purchase price to Fight AIDS, which can provide 6 days of life-saving HIV medication.

Alessi corkscrew

The cheery corkscrew makes for the perfect stocking filler and is adorned in a red suit with a white heart embraced by (RED)’s brackets on the front, and the RED logo at the bottom of the back.

It’s an ideal option if you’re looking to buy a practical gift, whilst contributing to a good cause this Christmas.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
