The Best Wines To Give As Gifts This Holiday Season

‘Tis the most wonderful time of year to give wine as gifts! 

We’ve gathered some of our favorite wines to give as gifts this holiday season, so you can order now and get them in time for clinking glasses with family and friends. Get them while they last! 


Does your mom need a countdown until you come home? Or does your roommate need a pick-me-up while the weather gets colder, and colder, and colder … if so, we have the perfect gift in mind. 

Order Graham + Fisk’s Wine Advent Calendar for fun all December long. (And if you have a Cleveland Browns fan in your life, there’s even an advent calendar for them too!) Don’t forget to order one for yourself, so you can count down with a can every day until Christmas. 


This one’s for your boss, CEO, or whoever is generous enough to host ten people for Thanksgiving dinner this year. It’s a decadent and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon that any wine lover will enjoy. And while it’s certainly not inexpensive (around $35 a bottle), it won’t break the bank either. 

So if you’re going to splurge this holiday season, go for a Kith and Kin Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. The name means “Friends & Family” after all. 


Boxed wine is best purchased for one thing, and one thing only: big parties. And what better time of year to buy boxed wine than during the holidays? 

But there’s a way to spruce up that plain box of wine and make it a little more festive, and that’s with a Holiday Wine Spirits Wine Box Cover!  Buy two or three if you’re hosting a crowd, one for red, one for white, and one for rosé. Don’t worry about leftovers — boxed wine will keep in the fridge for a few weeks after the party is done, and this box cover will make you smile every time you open the fridge. 


While we love a good bottle of wine, there’s something about it that can seem a little last-minute and unoriginal. But canned wine in a charming box? That’s something worth gifting! 

This Holiday Cheers 8-Pack is a perfect gift for your date, best friend, or close family member. It’s sweet and festive, and comes with all four of Graham + Fisk’s award-winning wine varieties. So while the weather outside is frightful, make your wine drinking experience delightful with this holiday 8-pack! 


If sipping a dessert wine fireside with friends and family is more your style, bring the gift of a Tawny Port. The rich, nutty flavors of this dessert wine will warm everyone up on even the coldest winter nights. 

Go with a quality bottle here to get maximum flavors that back up the sweetness, such as Graham’s 20 Year Old Tawny Port. It’s recognized worldwide as one of the best. Plus with a name like “Graham’s”, how can it possibly go wrong! 



Are your sober or sober-curious friends tired of being offered sparkling grape juice and apple cider? Probably. 

Give the gift of something more sophisticated this holiday season like Codorniu Zero Rosé Alcohol Free. It’s fruity, bubbly, and makes a great hosting gift for those that opt not to indulge.
