Shopping for a wine lover is not a particularly taxing affair – there’s no end of vino-themed gifts available on both the High Street and online. And of course, if all else fails, a decent bottle of the good stuff will always be well-received. But this Christmas, give the gift of something a little different – there’s something for every budget.

Around £10:

Decorative bottle lights

People that enjoy wine are going to get through a lot of wine bottles, and while most will end up in the recycling there will be the odd occasion that a particularly special bottle comes along, whether that’s for sentimental or aesthetic reasons.

These LED string lights turn a simple bottle into a decorative, glowing arrangement, perfect for creating some cosy mood lighting with a difference.
