Sagaform Wine Decanter

From our archives (originally published December 1, 2008), for your gift list consideration… to see more, visit our Gift Guide.

I think as far as wine decanters go, this one is incredibly elegant…might be the perfect gift for a wine lover.

67 oz., Glass, Oak.

Animal Wine Stoppers

Maybe some of these animals tend to lean towards the ‘slightly creepy’ category, but nevertheless, I’d say they could be a perfect smallish gift this holiday season. Just be sure to get the recipient’s birth year (which could prove difficult) and then match it to the correct animal of the Chinese Zodiac (find their sign here).

Winebreather Decanter

‘Winebreather’ sounds like some sort of derogatory name you’d call an oenophile, but, in fact, it’s the name of this decanter. Place the decanter mouth-to-mouth with a wine bottle, flip it, and then watch as the wine washes down the sides of the decanter, partially aerating it. I’m not sure if it would qualify as a magic trick, but there is something nice about watching wine slowly move from bottle to decanter, sort of like an hourglass.

Wine Cork Stoppers and Pourer

I love these new Wine Cork stoppers designed by Aurélien Barbry. The Wine Pourer (right) is pretty clever too, as its top ensures a proper seal. With more and more wineries choosing screw tops over cork stoppers, these will at least keep some of that traditional feel alive.

Cylinda-Line Cocktail Shaker

Apart of Stelton’s Cylinda-Line, this cocktail shaker is a sight for sore eyes, and I’m not talking about the promise of future cocktails. Clean lines, no frills, it’s amazing that something so very simple and sleek is sooo incredibly expensive. Unfortunately, as is often the case, sometimes less is very definitely more.

Designer: Arne Jacobsen
8.6 in x 3.3 dia.

Looking Glass Decanter

While this upside down decanter is quite expensive, it would be terribly fun to use. Inspired by the stories of “Alice in Wonderland”, it magnifies and distorts the things seen through it. Chances are that it would be partly used as a decanter and partly a display object, because why in the world would anyone hide something like this in the cabinet?

Hand made in borosilicate glass.
Available as a numbered sequential edition.

Decanting Mirror

If this had title no description, would you know what it was? I would guess an art-ish object of some sort. It’s almost always a delight when an object has beauty apart from its function.

“this wave shaped polished piece of steel is used to pour wine over for aeration in to a decanter. the beautiful wine waterfall enhances the aromas.”

Artist/designer: latelier du vin
Materials: stainless steel.
10″ l x 6″ w

Whoa, talk about a steal of a deal. Snap this 6-piece wine set up as a thoughtful gift for that friend or family member that loves playing host, or maybe for yourself if you plan on throwing some holiday get-togethers. If you or the giftee prefer something of the stronger sort, consider the 5-piece shot glass set or 4-piece martini set.

Corker Corkscrew

A clever interpretation of the corkscrew…

“designed by uk-based sebastian bergne, this corkscrew only achieves its true functional role after the consumption (or opening) of two wine bottles. we think the wait is worth it, however. a beautiful design in a world of very boring corkscrews.”
