Are you done with your holiday shopping? Have you followed our Holiday Gift Guide on Facebook and Instagram? We love this time of the year and look forward to finding unique and fun products that you can’t find anywhere else on the island. Here are a few of our favorites!
If you love your wine cold, CHILL ($18.95) is a perfect choice. The process is simple: Just pour the first glass, insert the cooling pour spout and enjoy perfectly chilled wine.
For that special gift for the man in your life, we have a great assortment of cigars that pair well with our specialty line of flasks. Cigars range in price from $10.95 to $13.95 and the flasks cost between $20 and $30.
If you want to get a funky gift that represents Kauai, the glass chicken wine stoppers ($13.95) are so cute. If you don’t fancy chickens, there are others to choose from such as a colorful fish.
We also love the brand TWINE, which is known for their elegant and rustic products. We carry wall-mounted bottle openers ($8.95) and an Old Kentucky cocktail shaker ($29.95).
Of course we can’t leave out all of our great wines. For a hearty holiday dinner, we suggest a Zinfandel. We have Joel Gott ($19.95), Star Lane ($42.95) and Turley ($54.95). Dessert wines are a necessity and we have a number that will pair well with chocolate treats, fruity delicacies or creamy creations. Prices range between $18.95 and $35.
If Champagne is your favorite, we have an amazing selection that work with your pocketbook and palate. Prices range from $12.95 to $250.00.
We also have a great variety of gift baskets online. If you prefer to give a gift card, we can take of that for you as well. From our ohana to yours, we wish you a very happy holiday season and hope to see you at The Wine Shop!
