Columbus Alive

Handmade stopper, $22

The perfect, festive little gift to go with any bottle. Kristen Fishman of Bezel+Zin, who used to live locally, crafts them in many colors.

Meza Wine Shop

48 N. State St., Westerville

Lit & Co. candle, $20

With scents as fresh and distinct as "white tea" and "grapefruit & mandarin," anyone should love these candles. A wine lover would be especially charmed by their bottle (and cork stopper).

Ohio cheeses, $7 and up

Giving a wine lover a few new cheeses to sample is like giving them another reason to drink wine. They'll love you for it. The Hills Market has an excellent Ohio-made cheese selection.

Wine tote, $24

A bottle of wine isn't always the easiest thing to transport. To the rescue: An appropriately themed and plastic-lined canvas tote made to hold and dispense an entire bottle. It's pretty to look at, too.

Columbus Museum of Art store

480 E. Broad St., Downtown

Bell jar glasses, $12

Have a wine drinker with a sense of humor on your list? A set of these should go over big. (Hint: Pair them up with a box of wine; we suggest Bota Box.)
