It can be a struggle to find the perfect wine gift for moms who already have every wine glass, bottle opener, charm, rack, etc. At the end of the day, it’s so hard to pick a gift that they’ll actually use AND that they don’t already own.
That’s where this list comes in: these are 20 useful and unique wine gifts for your mom that will make you the favorite child. These are perfect for Christmas, Mother’s Day, Birthdays, Leap Year, or any other occasion where you feel like thanking your mama!
My mom is a practical woman, so you won’t find anything overly frivolous or that they’ll just pawn off on a friend in a few months. These are legitimately helpful, fun products that will make amazing gifts for the woman who raised you and put up with all of your BS from your terrible twos to your ungrateful early twenties.
While I can’t guarantee your mom doesn’t already have a few of these, I can promise you’ll find something new that she’ll absolutely love in the list below.
So let’s break out our wallets and celebrate the lovely mamas in our lives!
PS: no one pays me to do anything and I don’t use affiliate links, so you can be 100% sure that I’m only including products that I truly love and think your mom will love too.
What could be better than a sampler box of perfectly portioned wines sent directly to your mom's front door? Vinebox has a variety of boxes to choose from that change from season to season, and most are a mixture of whites and reds. I got their wine advent calendar last year, so I can personally vouch for the quality of the wines -- they are truly fantastic. It's a little bit pricey, with the cheapest box hovering around $80, but I can guarantee it's worth every penny.
I own a pair of these and am honestly obsessed. My partner knows he's going to be running back and forth to the kitchen all night when I throw these babies on. They're super cute as a small gift or stocking stuffer for your mom or mother in law. Throw in a bottle of bubbly for good measure and you've got yourself a gift box, baby!
Some might not see this as a gift for wine lovers, but they would be wrong. Wine already heats up your body temperature, and no one likes having a hot flash on top of that when they're trying to enjoy a glass of Merlot. That's where this handy tool comes in -- it's small, sleek, and you just put it on the back of your neck for instant cooling relief. Hell, I'm only 30, but I run hot and would LOVE one of these bad boys paired with a glass of vino.
Rosé gummy bears are the perfect addition to a wine-themed gift basket or stocking! These are truly delicious and will pair wonderfully with your mom's favorite bottle of rosé. I have yet to meet a mom who doesn't like a good rosé, so giving them their beloved drink in the form of an adorable gummy is a true win-win (wine-wine?) situation.
Every mom loves brunch, and no brunch is complete without a mimosa or 7. These little sugar cubes pack a whole lot of flavor and instantly will turn your plain, boring sparkling wine into a fabulous bellini. Whip these out on Mother's Day with a few bottles of bubbly and everyone will know who got the party started.
This is a wonderful gift box for the red wine loving mom who's all about #selfcare. This box includes a soap bar, salt scrub, sugar scrub, and a candle to set the spa ambiance. All items are, of course, Cabernet/Merlot scented, so she can be surrounded by her favorite aromas while achieving ultimate relaxation.
Barring a horrific allergy, chocolate is literally never a bad gift idea! What makes these chocolate truffles special is they're filled with a champagne-infused white chocolate ganache. SO much better than a generic box of chocolates.
I know this seems simple, but having a good way to cork back up your sparkling wines so they taste the same in a day (or in an hour) is a truly helpful tool. It's one of my favorite wine accessories. Even though I usually have no issue finishing a full bottle in one sitting, a good champagne corker will make it taste like it's just been opened no matter when you decide to finish it off.
A brilliant gift for the mom who loves to host! These would be super fun for a blind tasting party or just for having people over to try a few new bottles. They're a bit pricey, but since they'll last a long time, can be endlessly reused, and are so fun, they're worth the price tag in the grand scheme of things.
Monograms aren't my jam, but I can think of at least 10 of my mom friends who would LOVE a personalized wine tote. This one comes in single or double, and it even includes a travel corkscrew, which is an endlessly useful tool. If your mom was in a sorority or a key club, this is the gift for her.
No one likes wine rolling around unbridled in the fridge. It can get messy, it takes up an awkward amount of space, and it's just unorganized. That's where this wonderfully practical fridge wine rack comes in! Your mom will never have to frantically throw bottles of wine in the freezer to get them chilled, because they'll already have a beautiful home in the comfort of her refrigerator.
Speaking as someone who owns two of these handy flutes, these are my favorite glasses for the deck, beach, pool, picnic, and whatever other outdoor space people drag me to. They're shatterproof, super sleek, and will keep your mom's sparkling wine cold even on the hottest summer day.
Speaking of picnics and the great outdoors, here's a wonderful gift for the mom who loves relaxing outside with a nice bottle of vino. This insulated picnic bag holds two bottles of wine and comes with two unshatterable glasses, a cheese board, knife, bottle opener, and cloth napkins. All you have to add is the wine bottles, and then you best watch out for Yogi Bear.
By far the weirdest item on this list, I'll be the first to admit it's frivolous and a little creepy. However, if your mom has a good sense of humor, there's no doubt this would have her crying with laughter. Your mom will also love making her friends gaze at her bobble head glory on top of its wine bottle throne. It's a fun gag gift, but also... is it really a gag gift? Because I desperately want one.
Getting your mom a coaster might sound lame, but trust me -- it's not. No mom (or other reasonable human) likes getting water marks or wine stains on their furniture, but most people don't know there are coasters for actual wine bottles. It's practical and pretty and she'll love it.
Another overlooked but super practical wine accessory that your mom likely doesn't already have is a wine drip stopper! This handy tool will keep her bottles in pristine shape and reduce the chances of red wine getting on her countertop. It might seem frivolous, but sometimes you want to save a special bottle and don't want wine stains marring the facade.
If your mom has a bit of a competitive streak, why not get her a fun wine-themed game? This card game was invented by the creators of the SOMM films and will test your knowledge (or lack there of) of wine through a series of blind tastings. It also requires your friends to bring a secret bottle of wine if they want to play, so even if you lose, it's still a net win.
I wouldn't get this for your mom if you're able to see her in person, but this is a fantastic gift if your mom doesn't live close by! This box is really stylish and includes treats, a Corksicle tumbler, a candle, a keepsake box with a hand written card, and a gold corkscrew. Sending her a virtual happy hour kit and getting on Facetime with her would be a sweet gift that she'd no doubt appreciate.
And finally, for the crafty and festive moms out there, why not get them some string lights so they can repurpose their wine bottles into functional decor? This way they can combine two of their passions: wine and home DIY.
And that’s a wrap! I hope this gave you some unique gift ideas for your wine loving mom! Whether you want a gift for a birthday, stocking stuffers, or just to say “hey, thanks for birthing me”, these all fit the bill.
Cheers to wine and to moms and to moms who love wine!
