Prosecco is a light, fizzy and lively drink that’s synonymous with celebration. Originating in Italy, most are made from the glera grape but other varieties can be used. It should be savoured; we think it’s best enjoyed laced with the pulp of fresh white peaches in a classic bellini, or drunk ice cold on its own.
Whether it’s a tall glass to fill with dry prosecco brut, a novelty gift or simply a bottle of delicious bubbly, there’s something for everyone in our top picks of prosecco-themed gifts.

Prosecco-themed gifts for special occasions
Dartington crystal prosecco party glasses, set of 6
A classic, slim-stemmed glass with a tapered design is an elegant way to enjoy your prosecco. This pack of six by Dartington Crystal are dishwasher safe, so you can let the machine do the work after the party.
Personalised prosecco bottle stop
The jury is out when it comes to whether putting a silver spoon in the top of a bottle of bubbly will help it keep its fizz, but regardless this little spoon is a sweet accessory to adorn your open bottle with. Customise with a message to make this novelty gift even more personal.
BarCraft hammered stainless steel champagne bowl
This hammered stainless steel champagne bowl is a centrepiece in itself and loaded with ice, will chill your bottles of prosecco to the perfect temperature for drinking. Use as a punch bowl in the summer or to ladle cups of warmed mulled wine during the festive season.
Prosecco O’clock clock
For those who have a strict ‘over the yardarm’ policy when it comes to popping open the prosecco, this solid oak, novelty clock could make a great prosecco gift by post. Somewhat brilliantly, you can request the prosecco-o-clock to be moved to any position on the clock face when ordering, or even change the name of the drink to another favourite.
Reclaimed wood bath caddy
Somewhere a genius thought to upcycle a scaffold board and create a rustic bathroom gadget that enhances every super-soak session. Now you can safely have a glass of bubbly in the bath.
There’s a stand for resting your book or tablet against, two slots for tealights and a neat little groove cut into the side for sliding in the stem of your wine glass. It’s the kind of thing that once you’ve got it, you’ll wonder how you ever did baths before.
Best bottles of prosecco to buy as gifts
Some of our top picks of prosecco to buy for yourself or as a gift are under £25. A DOC (denominazione di origine controllata) label will give you a guarantee of its geographical origin but it doesn’t age in the same way champagnes or wines do so it should be drunk young, within three years.
Romeo & Juliet prosecco di Treviso brut DOC NV
Chosen as the best easy drinking prosecco, this brut-style bubbly is dry and citrusy leaving subtle almond notes on the palate.
Majestic Wine (£9.99)
Sacchetto prosecco extra dry Fili NV
Initially sweet, this prosecco transforms into a toasty and refreshingly peachy flavour and is our pick for complexity of flavour.
