#1 - Book - 50 Perfect Wines to Pair with Your Child's Rotten Behavior

Pro’s

? Hilarious book for parents
? Guide to Remove Corks without a Corkscrew
? Periodic Table of W(h)ine with stickers

Con’s

? None

How on earth could I go past this gem. 

If you’re a parent that gets driven to drink because of your child’s behaviour, then this is the book for you. Well, this is about Christmas gifts, so I’m sure you’ll know somebody who has gone through the same pain that you have.

This hilarious book called ‘W(h)ine’, includes 50 pairings that are suited to each rotten behaviour that children display. It’s often the case that we hold onto our feelings about our kids behaviour, sometimes though, something just needs to be said. If you need a good laugh at your child’s expense, this book is a beauty.

As a bonus, this book will also explain how you can remove a cork from a wine bottle, without the need for a corkscrew. There’s also a ‘Periodic Table of W(h)ine‘ at the rear of the book. Each wine featured in the book is accompanied by a sticker, that can be placed on the ‘Periodic Table of W(h)ine’ fold out.

A huge approval rating of 5-stars has been given to this book. It’s a gem.

#2 - 1 Wine Bottle Serving Tray

Pro’s

? Perfect for Snacks or Plants
? Handcrafted with Smooth Edging
? Recycled wine bottles

Con’s

? Only 1 per order

Snacks anyone!

These wine bottle serving trays are a unique piece of artwork that anyone would admire. Although they’d look amazing on a coffee table with various condiments, you can actually use them for other purposes.

They’ve even been suggested to use as a planter for succulents, small cactus or herbs. There’s even an option to order with a drainage slit for this purpose.

If you into being environmentally friendly and recycling, you’ll also appreciate the fact that these bottles are up-cycled from local areas to the artisan.

Each bottle is handcrafted using cold working glass cutting techniques. The cut edges are extremely smooth and there’s a cork on the base to prevent it from rolling. This can be excluded should you prefer.

You’ll find these are a brilliant addition to any party.

#3 - The Wine Castle Decanter Drying Stand

Pro’s

? Stainless-Steel Hanging Decanter Stand
? Rubber Seal for Protection
? Perfect for Air Drying

Con’s

? Possibly not for Narrow Decanters

How hard is it to dry a wine decanter after you’ve washed it? Do you often find dry streaks after your decanter has sat on the draining board for an hour of so?

Well check out this invention. For the wine connoisseur that has everything else, how about a Wine Castle Decanter drying stand. It allows your decanter to hang upside-down and air dry, leaving a spotless finish.

This decanter stand fits most standard sized decanters, and has a modern and cool design. It’s stable and versatile, making it a perfect Xmas gift for the wine lover in your family.

Made from stainless steel, I really like the rubber coating where the wine decanter will be placed. This will protect your glassware, or crystal-wear from scratches.

4.9-stars is a great approval rating from Amazon verified customers.

#5 - Premium Solid Stainless Steel Wine Glasses PLUS Recipe eBook

Pro’s

? Stainless Steel
? Stemless Design
? No More Smashed Glass
? Smooth Edges

Con’s

? None

If you’ve never drunk wine out of stainless steel before, you should give it a try. There’s so much to like about these high quality stemless wine glasses, least of all the shape. I love stemless wine glasses anyway, but being stainless steel just adds that extra zing.

They may not be for everyone, but there are advantages. You’ll never have to clean up broken glass again! They can be taken on camping trips and you won’t have to worry about being knocked.

Being made from T-304 stainless steel, they have smooth family-safe edges for safety and keep your drink colder for longer is a similar way that Moscow Mule mugs do.. These are also dishwasher safe, so they can be thrown in a full dishwasher with no problems.

There’s also an eBook that has been created that will be thrown in as a bonus for Backyard Bum customers.

Again, 4.9-stars is an awesome rating.

Here’s some other wine glass shelves you may like.

#7 - Wall Mounted Wine Rack

Pro’s

? Holds 5 Bottles and 6 Glasses
? Heavy Duty Metal Black Finish
? Cork Tray
? Cork Charms

Con’s

? Only Holds 5 Bottles

If you’re not keen on the previous wine rack, how about this slightly more decorative wine rack.

Unlike the previous wooden rack, this is made from heavy duty metal finished in black. I really like the stylish ‘WINE’ font on the face of the rack, telling it how it is!

It can hold 4 wine glasses and 5 wine bottles.

One of the unique features, is the cork tray below the bottles. A small opening to the side allows for stocking up this area with your favourite wine corks, possibly form wild celebrations.

I like the added bonus with this product, with the set of 6 cork wine charms that can be attached to each wine glass. Ideal when you have a party and don’t intend on misplacing your wine glass.

The wine rack comes with all fixing mounts and screws, and is simple to attach to your wall.
