20 Budget Friendly Gifts for the Wine Lover


I absolutely love Christmas shopping. I can spend hours wandering the store with no goal in mind. Unfortunately, without a plan I usually either 1.) spend way too much on a gift, 2.) leave the store empty handed or 3.) buy something I’m not happy with and think, “Well, this is good enough.” This year though, I’m prepared. I’ve gathered a list of items I know my wine loving friends will enjoy and I’m sharing it with you incase you need a little inspiration. Best of all, each of the gifts on this list are priced under $25 making them perfectly budget friendly!
