Wine gift baskets are a favorite pick for anniversary gifts and wedding gifts.

Wine Gift Baskets for Corporate Gift-Giving

Wine gift baskets are well received as a thank you for business referrals, and many realtors like to give their clients wine gift baskets when the client moves into a new home. Corporations often give wine gift baskets. For corporate gift giving include a corkscrew and wine stopper in case the wine is to be opened and shared at the office.

Wine Gift Container Ideas - Wooden Crates, Wine Racks, etc.

Most wine baskets are made of wicker but wooden crates, planters, caddies, small wine racks and other gift containers are available.

Besides gourmet foods, nice additions to wine gift baskets are: decorative wine stoppers, wine charms, hand- crafted coasters, candles, candle holders, a cheese serving set and of course, fancy wine glasses.

Themes for Wine Gift Baskets :

Wine baskets can have an Italian theme - red wine, cheeses, pasta, olive oil, balsamic vinegar; a French countryside theme - a bottle of Chardonnay, brie, truffles, French butter cookies, Dijon mustard; a Californian theme - wine from the vineyards of California, cheese, fresh citrus fruit, dried fruits, Napa Valley mustard, etc.

The theme of the wine gift basket also may be romantic - add a couple of wine glasses; a long stemmed red rose and some delectable chocolate. If you can't choose between white wine and red wine, pick a wine basket that contains both red and white, or choose a rose wine.

Wine is Ideal Gift for the Person Who Has Everything:

Wine gift baskets are ideal for those who have everything and are difficult to buy for; a consumable like wine will always be appreciated and can be shared with others.

Restrictions Apply to Shipping Gift Baskets Containing Wine:

One has to be careful to adhere to the laws regarding alcohol in each state or province. There are laws and regulations regarding the shipping of alcohol across borders - international and local. Interstate laws in the United States concerning the shipping of alcohol place limits on where a company can ship a wine gift basket. Check to see which states the company can deliver to before ordering gifts containing wine. When buying a wine gift basket for someone who lives in another country or state, buying online from a company that is based in the recipients's area is ideal.
