Best Decanters to Gift This Season

Why do we use them, and what kind should you buy?

Gifts are supposed to be light-hearted and even frivolous, especially when you're buying a gift for a hard-to-shop-for wine geek. You can rack your brain trying to find the perfect wine or glassware, but truth be told, those are generally hard to find when it comes to more difficult wine geeks.

So what's the solution? Take a look at decanters. Seriously. While decanters may not get a ton of use by many wine lovers out there, it is probably just because many wine lovers don't own decanters!

Decanters not only serve a real and tangible purpose, to help oxygenate wine, but they also serve an aesthetic purpose. Decanters are attractive and can quickly enhance the appearance of a table setting or side bar. They come in a variety of styles, sizes, and shapes, and at a range of prices. So take a look at some of these great decanters and learn more about why and when to use them.
