Wine Accessories (Christmas Gift)


Looking to get my dad a Christmas gift. He is a big wine guy and already has the electric bottle opener, decanters,electric cork, wine fridges,vintage wine carrying thing. Anyways, I was thinking about getting him those wine skins for when he is flying. He only brings his own wine with him when driving because fear of them breaking. Price Range 100 Dollars
Anyone have any suggestions on which type? Any other wine accessories that I am missing?

Spark Notes: What wine accessories should I get my dad for Christmas? Thinking about getting wine skins so the wine doesn't break when he is traveling. Price Range 100 Dollars. TIA

Sounds good. Only concern would be if it breaks it will leak all over his luggage, but it did say someone threw it off a 3 story building and it didn't break so.

There are some hardcases out there but they are more expensive. Honestly I like these more because you can throw them in your luggage--the hardcases are essentially another piece of luggage.

Wine Skin 7 bucks
Think I am going to get him 2 of the ones you suggested and maybe two of these since there so cheap. This way he can put the wine skin on and then put it into the wine protector and if it breaks the wine seals don't leak. Thanks for your help Coater

Screwpull rabbit opener. I like it much better than electric. this thing is amazing!

Bottle stoppers.

I have this one. Too Girly? Everyone loves it.

How about a wine cabinet? More than 100$, but there are some beautiful pieces

I love wine
You could also send a case to his house, or gift card so he can try some new wines on your $.

Used these wine skins to bring several bottles back from California. None of the bottles broke, and these will completely contain the spill if a bottle did break. Great product, would highly recommend.

Look at BD Kitchen's facebook here:

They have something called a Vin-O-Ice (look in the posts a little ways down) I was looking at it earlier today with interest.

The store is closing so it is a great time to buy things at a clearance discount.
