There’s no doubt that wine accessories can run the gamut from cute (and cheap) to super costly, so we’ve gathered the very best wine gadgets for under $20 to help you heap on wine love whether for your own kitchen or for another’s.
Wine Cork Trivet Kits ($20) are a fun way to remember your favorite wines. No longer limited to simple squares or classic circles, now they come in all shapes and sizes, from heart-shaped to Christmas trees and stiletto heels to horseshoes, even cork-lined picture fames, all bordered by rich mahogany wood. One of my favorite gifts from my kiddos – easy to make and ready to use on the table or the wall.
Moleskin Wine Journal ($10) creates an elegant account of the wine tasting adventure. In today’s smartphone-driven culture, I still love the feel and look of pretty paper! Well laid out, this journal is broken into wine themes: red, white, sparkling, rosé, red, and fortified or sweet, along with a separate section for spirits. Easy to customize and create individual notes and reviews no matter if the user is a wine newbie or full on, seasoned enthusiast.
Drop Stop ($6) These innovative little firm foil-like spouts keep wine from dripping all over the place with successive pours. They fit all bottle sizes and are easy to use and you can use them over and over again.
Wine Glass Writer Pens ($20) Love these things! While wine charms are cute and quaint, these artsy metallic pens are perfect for labeling glasses with names for friends and family or with specific wines during tastings. A must-have for stemless glassware.
Vacu Vin Wine Saver ($15) When it comes to keeping wine at its prime once opened, Vacu Vin gives the bottle its best shot for slowing down oxidation. By pumping out excess air and creating a bit of a vacuum in the empty bottle space and resealing it with a close-fitting rubber stopper, you can buy more time with the wine.
