Let’s face it: You look pretty classy and sophisticated drinking wine, no matter whether it’s red or white or even rosé. How amazing is it that wine goes well with everything from steak to fish, or cheese and charcuterie? Keep in mind that wine also goes great with friends. Or your cat. Or a movie! Wine makes a fabulous gift, too, for celebrations and housewarming and host gifts.
Best of all, in our opinion at least, you can drink wine even if you don’t understand all the minutiae. And there are a lot of minutiae in the world of wine! We love that there’s always more to be learned. Wine is pretty amazing!
Heck, we love wine so much that we’d sell wine if we could! But legalities being what they are, we’ll have to stick to offering you many of the things that go great with wine, and are awesome gifts for wine lovers. Let’s take a look at some of our best!
Wine For Normal People book
Remember that part above, when we mentioned all the minutiae of wine? It can feel awfully intimidating sometimes. So we at Goodly just adore this funny and helpful book, in part because it’s an amazing introduction to the world of wine. Learn how to read a wine label, as well as pick up a not-snobby wine vocabulary with this comprehensive wine book, which is also full of fun illustrations, charts and lists. Even if you’re a true connoisseur, we bet you can learn a thing or two from this unique book, so it’s a great gift idea for every level of wine enthusiast!
Wine goes great with friends, but when all wine glasses look the same, how can you tell your glass of merlot from anyone else’s? We suppose you could spring for a whole bunch of unique wine glasses, but a faster (and less expensive!) option is the wine glass marker. These colorful Wine-O’s come in round or hexagonal shapes and fit around the stem of a wine glass. Plus, they’re made from Merino wool felt, which is one of the most luxurious and sustainable materials in the world!
Want to give these fun markers as a gift? Check out Wine-Otes, a set of wine markers that comes with a note card!
Cozy Wine Carrier
These silicone tumblers are personal favorites for many of us here at Goodly. They fit into any bag or container, so they can go anywhere your wine can go! These gorgeous tumblers can also bring some class to your box wine game, making them perfect for camping trips and tailgating events. Best of all, they come in multiple colors (and in sets of two), so you’re bound to find a color combo for every wine lover!
These lovely felted wool coasters tend to apply more to lighter white wines and champagnes, which are served chilled, but luxe coasters like these will class up any setting! Unlike plastic coasters, these high-quality coasters are made from sustainable and renewable wool felt. Wool is also hydrophilic, which means it can absorb as much as 30% of its weight without feeling wet. So really, these coasters make great gifts for just about everyone you know!
Cutting Board / Cheese Knife Set
There’s just something classy about the pairing of wine with cheese. Make sure not to settle for a plain, boring serving plate or cutting knife — refine your accouterments game with the addition of this luxe cutting board and gorgeous cheese knife set! As useful as they are beautiful, this combo is the perfect gift set for wine newbies and veterans alike. The smaller size also makes them perfect for picnics and other outdoor settings!
"Dear Wine, Yes" socks
You knew we’d put socks on this list, right? Goodly is formerly The Sock Drawer, and even though we’ve outgrown the drawer, socks are still near and dear to our Goodly hearts — as well as a fabulous form of self-expression. So of course we have wine socks, as well as a host of other drinking-themed socks, to choose from. Socks are a fun addition to any gift set, so make sure to take a look at all our amazing socks!

It’s got several of the items listed above, like Wine-Os and the Unbreakable Silicone Tumblers.
