When it comes to wine, there’s not much to complain about. In fact, it’s essentially the only thing that gets us through the end of a long work week. (That and the prospect of sleeping in and devouring a stack of pancakes on Saturday morning. But we digress.)
Though sipping on Chardonnay or a stiff red is always a good time, the
nightly weekly routine has gotten a little stale. Luckily for us, the world of wine product creators has taken a more humorous approach to some of its latest offerings, making the act of drinking a little less desperate, and more entertaining (though there will always be that fine line).
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite gadgets to hit the market. Grab a bottle, your favorite glass, and scroll down to check them out. Cheers!
That weekend hike with your in-laws sounds a little less horrible now, doesn’t it? Stock up and stay hydrated. And by hydrated, we really mean pump your veins with the good stuff and enjoy nature at your own pace. Buy it here.
Wine Bottle Glass
Turtle Wine Holder
Aerating your wine helps to keep it dry, smooth, and crisp. It’s an investment any wine-o should make if he or she wants to ensure a quality pour. And that’s no bull. Buy it here.
Safety first, wine-loving friends. Stay protected with these clever condoms. And if it’s your first time, don’t be too nervous. They’re easy to use and you’re in control. Buy it here.
Corkscrew Screwdriver and Hammer
Getting hammered is taken quite literally with this multi-purpose tool (though we’re not entirely sure we want to encourage handiwork while drinking). Don’t drink and drill. Buy it here.
Wine Pourer Rack
Things can get a little (how do we phrase this?)…unstable after a few glasses to many, but not with this metal rack that also serves as a reliable and steady (important) pourer. It sure beats having to buy boxed wine, right? Buy it here.
Pig Cork Holder
Carafe with Oak Stopper
So simple, yet so pretty. It’s one of those purchases you’ll probably stare at for three months, but never use. Or you’ll just play with the oak ball stopper until it rolls under your couch and you forget about its existence altogether. Buy it here.
Wine Door Stopper
Invite people into your drinking lair, but only if they come prepared with bottles. Should they show up empty-handed, turn them away and tell them to come back with triple the amount you already have. It’s only fair. Buy it here.
Magnetic Glass Markers
You’ll never have to scream “that’s mine!” during a house party again. It’s the small things in life that make the biggest difference. And for that reason alone, we call dibs on the moustache. Buy it here.
Pinot Noir Bottle Candle
Those notes of blackberry and vanilla may be getting lost on the tongue, but this candle offers drinkers a full sensory experience. Because why should you just sip your wine when you can also smell it? Buy it here.
These aren’t going to stop you from spilling your favorite Merlot all over your friend’s white blouse, but they’ll make you chuckle. On a Friday afternoon after a hellish week, that’s all that matters. Buy it here.
Long Stem Champagne Flute
We want to cheers everyone with these things. The stem is tragically attention-seeking, but still classy AF. How unfortunate it will be when we fill these with André and not Dom Pérignon. Buy it here.
Eve Wine Decanter
This may resemble a snake, but it’s far from scary. In fact, please bring us all the venom. K, thanks. Buy it here.
