Wine Tote Bags from Reluctant Trading Experiment
These reusable canvas tote bags are the perfect way to brighten up a bottle. Each of the six original designs was created by an award-winning designer in the Bay Area, and every one comes pinned with a gift tag so your bottle won’t get mixed up with others. $7.50, reluctanttrading.com

Coffee Soap from Maak Lab
Fragrant coffee, toasted oats and bitter chocolate aromas emerge from these hand-poured soap bars from Maak Lab in Portland. The olive oil-based soaps are made with essential oils (no fragrance or palm oil), meaning your hands will feel clean, moisturized and exfoliated. $9, maaklab.com

Tasting Rome by Katie Parla
The next best thing to booking a trip to Italy, journalist Katie Parla chronicles the flavors of Rome in this gorgeous compendium of food and drink recipes from around the city.  $19.70, amazon.com

St. Elder Natural Elderflower Liqueur
Fresh elderflower blossoms make up the floral profile of this cocktail sweetener. Add a dose to sparkling wine or soda for a subtle sipper. $20, crownwineandspirits.com

Wine Bottle Soy Candles from Trim
Husband and wife team Tricia and Micah started the Trim Candles company after realizing the bottom half of a used wine bottle would make for the perfect candle holder. Available in an array of aromas, each candle is made of all natural soy wax with cotton wicks. $24, trimsoycandles.com

Powdered Snow Ceramic Saké Carafe
Serve saké in style with this elegant carafe. The narrow neck prevents heat from escaping, and the textured porcelain makes it a joy to hold. Fits 9 oz. of saké. $18, umamimart.com

Attems Pinot Grigio Ramato 2014
Looking for a fresh alternative to a bottle of bubbly or rosé? Gift mom a bottle of orange wine, like this robust Pinot Grigio Ramato from Italy’s Attems Winery. Defined by a soft copper hue—a result of the skin of white wine grapes making contact with the must during fermentation—this beauty has a big, fruity bouquet that suggests a sugary body, but it’s actually quite balanced with flavors of honey, rhubarb and bright lemon juice mingling with a medium level of acidity and lingering tangy finish. $16, atlaswinesales.com

Gift Membership to Tasting Room 
Tasting Room developed a clever system to make sure every wine bottle is a hit. Gift recipients receive six mini-bottles of wine from around the globe to judge and determine what flavor profiles will best suit their tastes before receiving a full-size bottle. Gift memberships start at $25, but we like the second tier option, so the recipient will also get a two-bottle shipment of wine catered to their profile. $50 (plus shipping), tastingroom.com

The box includes The Ginger Gershwin cocktail blend from American Juice Co., smoked sugar syrup from Glossop’s, sweet hibiscus sea salt from Laguna Salt Co. and citrus bitters from Hella Bitters.
