So you're either are a mom, have a mom, or know a lot of moms who love wine. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of moms by personality type — and wine-related gifts for each.
If she can’t get enough wine or arts and crafts, then a perfect gift this Mother’s Day is a do-it-yourself party tray or corkboard made of wine corks. Make one for mom (which a crafty mom will surely appreciate) by following these steps — or buy her a kit to make her own. Wine cork trivets start at $19.95 with large wine cork platters for more than $100.
World Traveling Mom
This is one type of diaper she’ll happily take on the road! The wine diaper, as it’s known, will protect her favorite bottles from breakage while she’s traveling. $5 each or $10 for a set of three.
Get her a T-shirt or two to wear while working out — namely a shirt that sports a witty one-liner about wine such as, "Forgive me for I have zinned," or "You had me at merlot." (Starting at $25)
In her cellar, she’s got the perfect red wines and ports to pair with chocolate, but of course she can never have enough chocolate. Try Brix Chocolate for wine lovers. A variety pack of four types (milk, smooth dark, medium dark, and extra dark), along with wine pairing recommendations is a lavish gift at $49.95.
If she reads one and only one book on wine, make it the most published wine book of all time, The Wine Bible ($19.95), by Karen MacNeil, The Daily Sip’s acting editor-in-chief/mom/acclaimed author.
Why should wine-loving pregnant moms-in-the-making have to give up a lifestyle of sipping? Now they don’t! Pregnant moms can enjoy a wide range of non-alcoholic wines — see www.nonalcoholicwinesonline.com for an array of recommendations. Daily Sip pick: Navarro Vineyards Non-Alcoholic Gewurztraminer or Pinot Noir ($11/bottle).
Rock Star (Wannabe) Mom
She wishes she were one and still parties like one. Skip the wine and instead, go for this extremely beautiful set of Himalayan salt Tequila glasses (set of 4 for $30).
