Resveralife Wine Lovers Gift Guide

The holidays are the time of the year when we celebrate the year gone by with our families and friends and look forward to the New Year. These last few days can be a lot of fun and wine is something that helps to ensure that you make the most of all the fun and excitement. Since holiday gifts are integral to the holiday season, you would want to check out a few ideas on what to gift wine lovers. This Vine Vera Gift Guide for wine lovers helps you to choose the right wines and wine accessories for the wine enthusiast in your family.

Gifts for Wine Lovers

Coravin – Coravin is the way to splurge when purchasing something for wine lovers. Coravin is considered to be the ultimate wine that you can offer as a gift to a wine lover, particularly someone who really appreciates wine. The bottle has a unique wine pouring system that allows you to pour the right amount of wine while the rest of the bottle can be preserved to be used the next day, next week, next month or the next holiday season. Any wine lover would really be thrilled to receive a bottle of Coravin this year. Cost – $299.

TRIbella – TRIbella is a brand new wine aerator that has recently hit the market. Created by a Portland inventor, this aerator is the ideal one to pour into a perfectly shaped glass in order to reveal the truest flavor of the wine. The best part is that it is easy to transport and it doesn’t end up taking up too much space in your luggage either. Cost – $40.

Coravin Wine Opener – The Coravin Wine Opener is an ideal accessory to gift to wine lovers this year. If you’re looking to enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir that no one else wants to have, all you need to do is inject the needle into the cork and extract a glass of wine for yourself, without having to remove the cork at all. The needle easily penetrates the cork to extract your wine while the argon gas helps to pressurize the bottle in order to ensure that you only have to draw out as much wine as you need. Once the needle is removed, the cork reseals itself and allows you to preserve the bottle for later. Cost – $299.

Capabunga – The Capabunga is a wine cap that can be placed on a bottle of open wine to preserve it for later. The best thing about the cap is that it allows you to store the bottle on its side, without having to worry about any spillage. This cap fits all bottles and also has dozens of options to allow you to personalize your gifts. Cost – $18 for four.

World Atlas of Wine – Currently in its 7th edition, this gorgeous encyclopedia showcases the different wine regions in the world. There is plenty of new material in the latest edition and the cartography is extremely vivid and highly detailed as well. Cost – $55.

Wine Holder from Alessi – Alessi’s Noe Wine Holder is a beautiful wine holder that has been shaped to resemble a cluster of grapes. An ideal addition to any decor and a perfect gift to give to the wine lover in your family. Cost – $90.

Resveralife Live Well: Stay Healthy Through Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving brings with it a great deal of hustle and bustle, being on the run, cooking, food, and even sleep deprivation. Planning to host a Thanksgiving dinner party or get together can also be taxing on your immune system if you don’t take proper care of yourself. Aside from potentially gaining an extra pound or two, you run the risk of catching illness due to the influx of germs you may be exposed to. Resveralife would like to help by offering some simple tips to staying healthy through the Thanksgiving season to ensure your overall health and well-being.

Taking vitamins is essential to a healthy Thanksgiving

Up Your Vitamin Intake

Ensuring you are getting the proper amount of vitamins on a daily basis will ward off sickness, and help to keep you in great health while also providing plenty of energy. Many people tend to forget taking their vitamins when they are busy or have a lot of running around to do. Remember to take care of yourself so that you won’t get burned out or come down with an illness which is easy to do at this time of year, being that it is cold and flu season. You may want to incorporate preventative supplements, such as Vitamin C, and Echinacea to help ward off the bad germs you come in contact with.

 

Remember to Rest

Giving yourself the chance to get plenty of sleep the day before and the day of Thanksgiving can ensure you stay healthy and are able to fully enjoy the day. When we run on a lack of sleep, our immune systems are decreased, our mood changes for the worse, and we are generally unable to enjoy the day. We also need adequate sleep to regenerate new skin cells, rest our brains, and feel more relaxed. Sleeping for 8-10 hours is the ideal recommended daily allotment.

Washing hands

Remember Proper Hand Washing Techniques

When you are associating and mingling with people, shaking hands and coming in contact with germs foreign to your body can introduce a whole wealth of sickness. Maintaining proper hand washing methods will ensure you stay healthy through the Thanksgiving holiday. Washing for at least 60 seconds with a good antibacterial soap, such as Dial soap, and while using warm water will ensure most of these germs are killed on contact. Washing from your hands to your elbows will also ensure you get germs which may be hiding under your sleeves.

 

Drink Lots of Water

Not only does drinking adequate amounts of water keep you fully hydrated and able to get through the day feeling your best, but it also flushes out impurities from your system. All of the Thanksgiving foods we indulge in every year can wreak havoc on our intestinal tract, and overeating can also cause its own plethora of problems from constipation, to bloat, to flatulence and even heartburn. Drinking water can help to eliminate these symptoms and clean out your system while keeping you hydrated. It’s one of the best tips Resveralife can offer you!

Drinking water to stay healthy during the holidays

Even while following all of these tips to staying healthy through the Holiday season, you may still come down with something that is beyond your control. However, by maintaining proper care of your body, you increase the chances to stay healthy – and our best is all we can do. Treat yourself right, and never neglect your body. It will certainly thank you for it.
