What to Look for in a Wine Gift Basket聽

When choosing a wine gift basket, it鈥檚 important to consider any shipping barriers that may come up. 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鈥檚 arrival..

Of course, also聽consider what the person you鈥檙e sending to would like. Do they 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聽

If you aren鈥檛 finding the perfect fit for your special someone, going the route of a DIY wine basket is always a great option. 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?聽

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