A bottle of wine is the perfect gift for almost any occasion. It’s a great last-minute purchase, to be sure, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about the wine you buy. There are over 10,000 varieties of wine grapes in the world — and when you step into your local wine shop you might feel like there are 10,000 different bottles of wine in front of you. One good way to narrow down your choice is by thinking about the occasion you’re buying for — or by thinking about the preferences of the recipient of the gift.

A magnum bottle (the equivalent of two standard 750 ml bottles) helps take the pressure off your host, because there’s plenty to go round! Whether you go for festive bubbles or not, choose something that’s easy to drink, and therefore likely to appeal to most of the guests.
