Wine Stocking Stuffers and Small Presents
People who drink wine, love wine, practice at the altar of Cabernet Sauvignon are the easiest people to buy gifts for. You give them wine. Wine never goes out of style. It is always the perfect fit. Wine is what you get a wine lover. But, sometimes you want to add a little something else to the gift bag. Here are some inspirations to get the gift giving juices flowing. Below are a few wine stocking stuffers and small presents you can include with your wine gift.
Homesick Maryland Candle
Homesick candles caught my eye immediately. The state inspired labels stood out. Homesick’s designers created state specific labels for each of their candles. Yes, there is a Maryland candle. Beautifully simple, the label is a silhouette of Maryland. The Maryland candle is lightly scented and burns evenly. It is not a travel candle, but I take mine with me. It is calming and reminds me of home. You can order online at Homesick Candles or pick up one at the Annapolis Pottery. $29
Annapolis Pottery was offering a honey tasting when I purchased my Homesick candle. Intrigued by the different flavors, I had to try the honey. Bourbon, cinnamon, chipotle, chocolate, salted honey are some flavors available. Cloister Honey is the caviar of honey. It takes honey to the next level. The honey can be poured over cheese. The Bourbon honey is especially delicious when you serve with Brie. The honey is also spreadable. Yes, I said spreadable. The cinnamon can be spread on toast. These honeys are an excellent addition to a cheese plate. You can purchase single 3oz honey pot or a customize a set of three at Annapolis Pottery. $8 per honey pot.
