How to choose a last-minute gift? Instant gift ideas at your finger tips
It’s time to get your glad-rags out because the party of the year is finally here. But – gasp – you have not had time to get the perfect gift. What are your options? Arriving empty handed? You’ll never be invited again. Grabbing the first bottle you can find? Not very personal. A bunch of flowers? Not quite the effect you want. Luckily Clos19 is here to help. And if you order before 2pm, you’ll receive your order the following day. So, whoever said that last-minute gifts lack the wow-factor? Certainly not us, and here’s why. Note that the cut-off date for Christmas delivery is 21st December.
A gift is to be shared
The best gift is one that can be shared, right? So, arriving with glasses as well as a bottle will definitely mark points. For a champagne drinker, choose the Krug Grande Cuvée Sharing set with two Joseph glasses. Specially designed by glassware experts Riedel, the Joseph’s unique shape allows these sublime bubbles to reach their optimal expression, which is exactly what you want when you’re celebrating a special occasion.
Outshine the competition
Be bold, and don’t be afraid to stand out. Give something the person will really remember. A sleek, metallic bottle of Hennessy XO along with two Thomas Bastide glasses, the Hennessy XO and Ice gift set is bound to be real head-turners. If you are more ‘classic silver’, a magnum of Veuve Clicquot Rich or Belvedere Vodka is sure to impress. For gold lovers, pick a luminous jeroboam of Moët & Chandon Impérial champagne.
Multiply the effect
Sometimes the perfect last-minute gift isn’t a bottle. It’s four bottles presented in a pretty wooden case. And we all know that can make all the difference. The Ruinart Blanc de Blanc box is the ideal present for those who love the iconic shape of the 18th century inspired bottle. Even better, get the case shipped directly to the host’s home, so you won’t need to carry it and they get a surprise delivery.
A timeless gift
Rather than bring something you can drink, why not gift something to drink ‘in’. Thoughtful as well as practical, but especially beautiful and memorable, something from luxury French crystalware house Baccarat is ideal. Baccarat has paired up with Clos19 to curate an exclusive set of it’s iconic glasses. Opt for the Harcourt coupes, the Massena Tumblers or the Nancy Highballs which come in an exclusive custom-made Baccarat red-box.
