We’ve all been there. That moment where you’ve crossed all the names off your shopping list except for one—and you have no idea what to get them. And if that person is a wine lover it can make it even more difficult. Do you get them a special bottle, a wine tote, decanter or something completely different?
That’s where wine gift baskets can come in handy. These crowd pleasers not only come with a bottle for your giftee to enjoy, but also cheese, charcuterie, glassware and more.
So, whether you’re shopping for a specific person, or just looking to have an extra gift on-hand, check out some of our favorite wine and food gift baskets below.
8 of Our Favorite Wine Gift Baskets
1. For the Wine and Cheese Lover:
Harry & David’s Deluxe Cheese Crate with Wine
Perfect for anyone who enjoys having a glass of wine with a snack, this gift basket is sure to please even the pickiest giftee. Inside, you’ll find a bottle Pinot Noir with cheeses from Sartori, Rogue Creamery and more.
2. For the Person Who Likes To Be the Life of the Party:
Brut Strength Champagne Crate
This isn’t your typical gift basket, and you will have to provide the bottle of bubbly (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered), but we think this is perfect for the giftee who has a flair for the dramatic. Inside, you’ll find two flutes, mixed nuts and a stainless-steel saber that you can have custom engraved. If you can’t finish your bottle, don’t fret! This kit also comes with a stopper to help preserve those bubbles. Before attempting, please check out this guide on how to property saber a bottle of Champagne.
3. For the Person Who Always Likes to Try Something New:
Wild Child Wines
Perfect for wine fans who like to taste different things, this basket includes eight mini bottles to try. Inside you’ll find sample sizes of Sangiovese, Tempranillo and more.
4. For the Rosé Fan:
Rosé All Day Gift Crate
Nothing pairs with a sunny afternoon quite like a bottle of rosé. And in this basket, you’ll find everything you need for an afternoon outdoors, including cheese, crackers, lemon cookies and—of course—a bottle of rosé.
5. For the Champagne Lover:
Veuve Clicquot Champagne Gift Basket
Veuve Clicquot is one of the oldest Champagne houses in France and was helmed by Madame Clicquot, the first woman to do so. You can enjoy that history with this gift basket featuring a bottle of Champagne from the storied house. Inside you’ll also find chocolates, chocolate covered oranges and more.
6. For Canned Wine Lover:

7. For the West Coast Wine Lover:
California Coast Snacks & Wine Gift Set
No matter where your giftee happens to be located, you can bring a bit of the West Coast to their door with this basket. In addition to a bottle of Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc made with California grapes, this package also comes with cheeses, cured meats and more from The Golden State.
8. For the Non-Alcoholic Fan:
Pop the Bubbly
