THREE. Vinturi Red Wine Aerator — Who among us doesn’t enjoy a nice glass of red wine occasionally? And who wouldn’t want that red wine to taste as expensive as it could, even if you’ve just picked up a bargain bottle from your local Trader Joe’s? Crate & Barrel’s Vinturi Aerator is a really cool gadget that mixes in just the right amount of air as you pour each glass to help your wine open up and taste as delicious as possible. Any wine connoisseur or enthusiast would be thrilled to get this and it would also make a perfect hostess gift. Oh, and did we mention that we’re picking one up for ourselves as soon as possible? Our favorite Pinot Noir will soon be even more fabulous!
