Summer season party gifts – Zazzol wine aerator

My social life has been very outdoorsy recently: barbecue get-togethers, Pimm’s garden parties, Sunday picnics in the park…London is fully enjoying an unprecedented amount of sunny days, so even the grumpiest of us all seem to be taking a little break from traditional weather whining and are embracing the atmosphere of one big celebration of summer!

This brings me to my No.1 summer party gift which has been blamed for so many embarrassingly funny Facebook videos with my friends, that it has to be shared with you lot.

Please welcome your new best drinking buddy – Zazzol wine aerator (this is an actual technical term, I nicknamed it “the bubbly hero”).

Made out of sturdy quality plastic, it will surely survive your summer party season.

What this mighty little thing does is simple yet genius – it adds oxygen to wine (wine experts would say “it lets the wine breathe”), so even supermarket bottles of Merlot or Pinot Grigio instantly taste like their pricey restaurant “siblings”.

Let’s admit it, noone wastes money on wine for summer parties, it’s simply not the point. This thing makes any wine much more palatable by removing the nasty burning sensation that comes from inexpensive wines that have just been opened. The wine poured through Zazzol tastes softer, more refined, you may even feel those “wine notes” that are described on the bottle (you know, that blurb about ‘light notes of peach and citrus’).

I tried my best to take the picture to describe how the aerator works, but there is a video on Zazzol’s website that does a better job at explaining the physics behind the invention.

So next time you bring a bottle of wine to a party, I suggest you give the host this wine aerator too. Oh, and don’t forget to buy one for yourself, it’ll pay off long-term.

Ah, I almost forgot the gift wrapping part. I seem to be into animal motives at the moment.

My guess is that it almost makes the packaging come alive…like it’ll jump at you if you don’t open it in time.

This is what it reminded me of when I was writing the post...Harry Potter fans, anyone? :)

Currently living and working in London, I dedicate a few hours every week to share my gifting knowledge, accumulated over the years of epic gift fails and unexpected triumphs. I'm much better at giving personal recommendations than trying to be generic, so feel free to drop me a line.
