What to Look for in a Wine Gift Basket  

When choosing a wine gift basket, it’s important to consider any shipping barriers that may arise. Be sure to check for extra shipping costs, restrictions on where and how you can ship alcohol (more on that later), age restrictions and the timing of the gift basket’s arrival.

Of course, you should also consider taste and preference when selecting a gift basket. Does your giftee really enjoy California whites, but not sparkling Champagne? Do they have a nut allergy or avoid meat products? Choose a basket that best reflects their tastes and dietary needs.

How to Make a Wine Gift Basket  

If you aren’t finding the perfect fit for your special someone, consider a DIY basket. For tips on how to build one with the essentials, check out our guide to creating your own DIY wine gift basket.

Can You Send Wine to Someone as a Gift?  

Yes, you can ship alcohol, but every state has different alcohol shipping laws. Many websites will require you to input the recipient’s birthday and zip code to confirm they can legally receive alcohol. Once the wine basket gift arrives, recipients may be required to show proof of age.
