On your{shopping} marks…

Aaannnnddddd…GO!!!

1.)        Bollinger Limited Edition Brut Rose: $150.00

Bollinger Rose

In October of this year Bolligner released an exclusive, one-of a kind, “Special Limited Edition” 2006 Vintage Rose’ made from 9 exceptional Grand and Premier crus. Comprised of 72% pinot noir and 28% Chardonnay, the champagne was aged for 10 years—yep, ten whole years!—in the Bollinger caves, and is said to be a “mind-blowing expression of the 2006 vintage.”

You had to know that I’ve already picked up a bottle for myself, and I cannot wait to have said mind blown!

2.)        Peter Liem Champagne Book: $60.00

Peter Liem Champagne book

Those who adore all things champagne will absolutely be enthralled with getting the chance to delve into this book! Written by champagne professional, enthusiast, and educator extraordinaire Peter Liem, “Champagne” is an intimate and in-depth look at the wines, producers, and the region itself.  Described as having “enough facts, stories, details, and historical anecdotes here to keep anyone engaged,” this book is definitely one to add to you permanent library. And check out the cool map of the region that’s included!

3.)        Kate Spade Champagne bucket handbag: $358.00

kate-spade-food-fashion-champagne-purse

Why wear your heart on your sleeve when you can wear The “Finer Things Champagne Bucket Crossbody” across your shoulder instead? Kate Spade is known to have a special penchant for creating bubbly inspired handbags, jewelry, and trinkets, but this glittery, cheeky, chic, champagne bucket shaped handbag with a champagne bottle peeking out of the top may just be her best bubbly creation yet!  The top of the bucket unsnaps to reveal a circular space perfect for dropping in your essentials. A fun handbag that’s perfect for a night out on the town sipping bubbly!

4.)        Champagne riddling rack: $460.00

1stdibs antique riddling racks

The seriously champagne obsessed will have a collection of bottles at their fingertips to pop open at a moment’s notice, so why not give them some proper—and super stylish—storage for it in the form of riddling racks?

What is a riddling rack you say? You always ask the best questions, my dears. A riddling rack is a traditional French device used in the champagne making process that holds the champagne bottles at a very precise 45 degree angle, which is crucial in helping to create those gorgeous bubbles we all adore so much.

The always chic purveyor of fine items, 1stdibs, currently has 6 of these amazing small antique oak champagne riddling racks on hand that were made during the early 20th century in France. They each have room for 30 bottles and are perfect for organizing your champagne treasures. If you’re looking to store more bottles and have a bit more in your budget to spend, 1stdibs also has a vintage rack that hold 120 bottles for $1,160.00.

Of course there are other ways to store your bubbly but if it’s good enough for champagne makers it’s good enough for us too, yes?

5.)        Lafco Luxury Champagne candle: $65.00

Lafco champagne penthouse candle

Last year’s Volume II of the Ultimate Champagne Lovers Gift Guide included a luxury champagne-scented bar of soap by Lafco, and this year the company is back with the complementing candle called “Champagne Penthouse.” Billed as being “hand poured in the USA with up to a 90 hour burn time and delivered in a handblown art glass vessel” the listed fragrance profile on the candle is amazing: “sparkling grapefruit, Tuscan lemon and ginger are gently calmed by rose, neroli and verbena.”

Don’t those ingredients sound like a lush champagne cocktail in wax form? *gears start turning*

If you’re looking for a similarly luxuriously smelling candle that’s just a little easier on the pocketbook, I also adore the Prosecco Rose by Voluspa for $30.00–it’s one of my fave “go-to” candles.

6.)        Neiman Marcus + Armand de Brignac Champagne Adventure: $150,000.00

Armand de Brignac champagne and vineyards

Sooooo…how do you feel about taking a first-class flight with 3 of your besties to Paris where you’re then escorted to an exquisite French hotel for a 12-course dinner; then the next day you and your crew and whisked away in a private car where to the Champagne region to “meet with the 13th-generation winegrowing family” behind the eponymous champagne? While you’re there you’ll also sample the wines, tour the vineyards, visit the cellars, and then–wait for it–be taken for an aerial tour of the region via helicopter.

And all of that marvelous-ness is just the beginnings of this spectacular trip which ends with having 60 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne delivered to you when you return home. Are you sufficiently intrigued yet? If not you might be dead inside.

But I digress.

Billed as the gift for “for the bubbliest personality you know” *ahem, cough, cough, me* I could not be more blown away by this fantasy trip brought to you by the purveyor of over the top luxury gifts, Neiman Marcus. The retailer has an uncanny knack for tapping into the most fanciful notions imaginable to create fantasy experiences , and this one will knock the socks off of any champagne lover.

Anybody got a spare $149,000.00 they’re willing to gift to me for Christmas?

7.)        Puiforcat Sommelier Champagne Glasses: $830.00/pair 

Puiforcat glasses

Designed to elevate the wine tasting experience, these luxury, handmade, mouth blown glasses from France make for an absolutely beautiful way to sip your champagne! And the design of them is  perfection as well: the angular lines culminate in an equally elegant gold base to rest the glasses in.

Just how chic can you get?!

8.)       Banana Republic Champagne flute earrings & Charm necklace: $18.00 & $38.00

Untitled

For those who like to adore themselves with jewelry as much as they like to drink champagne, Banana Republic has got you covered. Perfect for wearing during the holidays–and year-round to show your faithful love for the bubbly stuff–these fab flute earrings and complementing necklace with a flute and champagne bottle will have the champagne obsessed sparkling just as much as their fave bubbly elixir.

9.)        Champagne Lanson Music Box: $60.00(+)

Champagne Lanson White Music box

If you are {or the champagne lover in your life is} anything like me, there are times where we imagine that we hear music when we drink a particularly beautiful glass of champagne. Well apparently Champagne Lanson was, *ahem* “in tune” with this phenomena and decided to help us out by making us hear actual music when we sip! Here’s how it works: “the unique gifting case allows a smartphone to be docked in the top lid, enabling an amplified sound when music is played from the device, transforming the Lanson Music Box into a makeshift speaker.”

Of course, a bottle of Lanson’s gorgeous Black Label, White Label, or Brut Rosé champagne comes along with the speaker. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “the sound of music,” don’t you think?

Now here’s the tricky part: right now the speaker is only available in France at the Charles de Gaulle airport and in Sydney, AU through www.danmurphys.com.au. But don’t fret–you know if and when it hits the States I’ll be sure to tell you about it!

10.)      Dylan’s Candy Bar Strawberry & Champagne Dark Chocolate Bar: $9.00

Dylans Candy

Proving that peanut butter and chocolate aren’t the only “two great things that taste great together,” the sweets-obsessed genuises behind Dylan’s Candy Bar have figured out how to pair the flavors of chocolate covered strawberries and champagne into one delectable bite: “Sweet strawberry pieces and crisp notes of champagne garnish an elegant blend of dark chocolate” in this rich, luxuriously delicious, high-end Belgian chocolate bar.

11.)        Bubbly Sparkling Wine Making kit: $70.00

Brookly Brew Bubbly Making kit

Brooklyn Brew Shop wants you to know that their effervescent beverage making skills extend beyond beer–enter the “Sparkling Wine Kit” where you’ll find bottles, corks and enough ingredients to make 5 bottles of sparkling wine right in your own kitchen.

It’s your chance to make some of the “strawberry champagne” that Bruno Mars seems to like so much. {wink}

12.)      “Pop Fizz Clink” bottle toppers: $10.00

Pop Fizz Clink bottle topper

Want to add a little extra fun to you fizz? Then pick up a few of the cute gold bottle toppers that are perfect for entertaining, gifting, or just lovingly adorning your fabulous bottles of champagne. No need to worry either because it fits any standard size wine bottle.

    I’ve observed in the world today, video games will be the latest rage with kids of all ages. There are occassions when it may be extremely hard to drag the kids away from the games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are various educational video games for kids. Thanks for your post.

    Another thing I’ve really noticed is that often for many people, low credit score is the reaction to circumstances over and above their control. As an example they may happen to be saddled having an illness and as a consequence they have high bills for collections. It might be due to a job loss or the inability to work. Sometimes separation and divorce can really send the budget in a downward direction. Thanks for sharing your opinions on this web site.

  7. says

    Good post and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to get some professional writers? Thanks :)

  8. says

    Many thanks for this article. I might also like to say that it can possibly be hard when you are in school and simply starting out to establish a long credit ranking. There are many students who are simply trying to endure and have a protracted or positive credit history can occasionally be a difficult thing to have.

    Birthday wishes can be in the form of a single line, an set up quotation, or a totally developed poem or essay. The way in which the birthday would like is shipped will rely on the relationship to the recipient.

  12. says

    I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

    I have to express my thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a circumstance. After researching throughout the world wide web and finding concepts which are not helpful, I thought my entire life was over. Being alive minus the answers to the difficulties you’ve resolved all through your review is a critical case, and the kind which might have badly affected my career if I had not discovered your web site. The know-how and kindness in taking care of all the stuff was excellent. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for your impressive and result oriented help. I will not hesitate to endorse the blog to anyone who would need direction about this situation.
