Buying for a devotee of the grape? These gadgets and gifts will make a vine choice

Christmas is a time for giving. And imbibing copious quantities of wine.

But if you're buying for someone who prefers sipping over sloshing, look no further – we've got the gifts for you.

Soiree Home Tempour (£30)

This four-in-one gadget combines an aerator and filter, pourer, stopper and stainless steel chiller to make serving win a doddle. It'll cool wine to the optimum temperature for serving, and can aerate and filter it to improve the flavour and catch any sediment as you're pouring. Plus it's modular, so you can discard any parts you don't want to use.

Once you've finished with your wine, the accumulated corks are good for nothing but reminding you of the shameful extent of your boozing. Unless you pick up some of these cute little robot kits – then you can turn them into adorable automatons and display them with pride.
