The 19 Best Wine Gift Baskets to Buy Online in 2022

Wine gift baskets and sets can be deceiving because they often include lower-quality wines you wouldn’t necessarily buy individually. With a bunch of goodies bundled together, a wine gift basket may look appealing, but it takes a bit of research to ensure the gift basket is filled with quality wines worth gifting.

A quick search will show that most wines commonly included in wine gift baskets are in the more budget-friendly but lower-quality range. We’ve done the hard work you and sifted through dozens of wine gift baskets to find quality picks truly worth gifting. These picks include a selection of tasty treats and delicious wines that are sure to please any palate. We’ve selected only the best wine gift baskets and included wine-only gift sets as well to take your holiday gifting to the next level.

A few things to consider when looking for wine gift baskets and wine gift sets are the shipping method and cost, the varietals of wine offered, and any included wine accessories or extra goodies like artisan foods, specific pairings, glassware, or wine keys. Our curated list provides a wide range of prices, styles, and wines worth gifting — whether your giftee loves a heavy Cabernet or can’t resist a perfect charcuterie plate alongside a glass of Pinot.

Factors to Consider

How It’s Shipped

Don’t forget to consider the time and cost of shipping. If you’re a last-minute gift buyer and giver, you’ll have to pay for expedited shipping on these gift baskets and sets unless you start shopping early. Many of these items have a purchase cut-off date for arriving in time for the holidays, so be sure to check that out when making a purchase.

Wine Variety

Take note of the varietals included in each set, as they vary greatly. If you only drink red versus white or vice versa, you’ll want to opt for the baskets and sets that include varietals you know you’ll love. We’ve featured several selections that offer red, white, Rosé, and sparkling only, so there are choices for all types of wine lovers.

Accessories

From artisan foods to glassware, wine gift baskets feature many accessories. Consider your giftee and their needs to determine which accessories make the most sense. Do they need glassware or wine keys? Will they be traveling away from home when they receive this gift, and if so, would those accessories be welcomed? Most of the baskets equipped with culinary treats include a wide selection, so you can’t go wrong, as there’s bound to be something enjoyable for every gift recipient.

Gift Basket vs. Gift Set

This list includes both gift basket and gift set styles, with the main difference being that baskets include an array of culinary goodies or accessories and the sets feature strictly wines. For gift recipients who don’t want the extra goodies, a gift set of wines is the right choice. But for those you know who want to make it a wine and food pairing experience, opt for one of the extravagant baskets we’ve included here.
