"Are you at a loss as to what to give your loved ones? For all the unimaginative Christmas (h)night men and women, XY has searched and found a few original wine gifts." The festive season is over again, the ritual Christmas gift-giving is over, the gift marathon is complete. The wines we received are already drunk, taken care of in the cellar or they are standing around (already almost lost) somewhere. Gift giving is a matter of luck, many think and do without (at least at Christmas). Others get excited in various forums about the sense of giving presents and the impossibility to guess the taste of another person. Again and again the question comes up: "Is a bottle of wine suitable as a present? Most definitely, of course, wine merchants claim and immediately provide a reason: "With a very good wine, you can give pleasure to wine lovers and connoisseurs." Different is the verdict in a blog: "Never give wine at Christmas, it is suitable for drinking, but not for giving."
