Giving present to friends and family who enjoy wines can be a bit intimidating. How can you know if a wine related gift is a winner?

Most people who were not brought up in wine drinking families get confused by anything more complicated than red wine, white wine or rose wine. But even people who like to drink wines and can tell the difference between a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay still hesitate to pick out gifts of wine for someone else.

Here are a few tips to make choosing a top rated wine gift easy...

Books about Wine

Books that focus on wine make great gifts and fit into almost everyone's lifestyle. There are books on wine related travel, cooking with wine and books that combine both — with regional recipes based on wines from different countries. Simple and easy wine guides, 'how to' books for folks who like to make wine, collect wine or enjoy learning more about the history of wines.

Some great suggestions? The Ragens have a nice selection of books on wine appreciation and winemaking. Also check out and tips on wine, mead and cider making from Northern

Wine Glasses and Decanters

There is no such thing as having too many wine glasses for those who enjoy drinking and serving wines.

Top brands like Riedel, Spode, Spiegelau and Lenox can be pricey but impressive. Hand painted glasses or decanter sets and elegant crystal wine glasses come in all price ranges.

Kwarx and Schott-Zwiesel Triton are 'unbreakable' crystal wine glass that may be a perfect gift for someone who loves to serve wine, but hates all that accidentally broken stemware. Polycarbonate wine glasses are a type of plastic that is hard to tell from expensive crystal... pretty to use and still dishwasher safe.

Even more gift ideas for wine aficionados?

Wine gift baskets are also a great way to put together a custom gift for a birthday, anniversary, or around the holidays.

For higher ticket items, wine refrigerators make for a great group gift, or inquire about footing the bill for local wine classes or a wine club membership for your favorite wine aficionado.

Have fun!
