Last Minute Gift Guide: For the Wine Lover

Inevitably just as you've checked the last name from your list you remember someone else you need to get a gift for. Luckily many of us nowadays have Amazon Prime with free two-day shipping. Over the next couple of days, I'll share gifts you can still get delivered in time for the holidays. Today I'll start with treats for the wine lovers in your life.
Under $30 Gifts for Wine Lovers that You Can Still Get in Time for Christmas with Two-Day Shipping
These gifts are perfect for hostess gifts or for livening up your typical get together. My criteria for choosing items were 1) whether they were available through Amazon Prime (free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime and Amazon Mom members), 2) would they assist with creating a memorable experience, and 3) cost under $30.
Recipe for My Favorite Goat Cheese and Pinot Gris Pairing
The Wine Lover's Cookbook is one of my favorites in my collection. For the most part the recipes are fairly simple yet depending on how you plate them can be fit to serve at a fancy dinner. One of my favorite recipes pairs breaded goat cheese cakes and a balsamic mustard vinaigrette with a Pinot Gris (I totally recommend La Crema Wine Pinot Gris). The tone of the cookbook is conversational so you won't fall asleep while you learn about various varietals and some guiding principles for pairing them with food.
What are you getting the wine lovers in your life?
Bon Appetit!
