Kathy Phantastic Pet Portrait
17 oz Stemless Wine Glass
Because not everyone drinks coffee, a pet’s mug can go on something other than a mug. This thoughtful keepsake captures the two best things in the world: true love and wine. (Beer mugs also available.)

Hill Country Provisions & Iron
Duchman Winery Wine Infused Salts
This is another wine product collaboration that we’re digging! Choose from Duchman Winery Vermentino Infused Salt (with coriander, lemon peel, and roasted garlic) and Montepulciano Infused Salt (with sage and porcini mushrooms OR Tuscan herbs). Plus, we especially love supporting this local business because the owner is an Army Ranger Veteran!

Kettle & Brine Hand-Blown Glass
Carafe with Ash Stopper
This is one of several swoon-worthy wine drinkware items at Kettle & Brine, whose signature is well-crafted simplicity. We want to buy all the things here!

Katie Kime Ice Buckets

3-, 6-, or 12-Month Club Membership
