If the fact that you’re stuck holding a glass is your least favourite thing about wine drinking, get ready to thank us.
Thinking of everyone who carries a clutch to parties or who simply likes to dance, the Wine Gift Centre have created wine glass necklaces. Costing £4 and made from a slip-free rubber, you can safely put your wine glass in it and enjoy your new hands-free way of drinking. Life will never be the same…

It comes in red, white and rose to please all palettes – and for those who are worried about being conned out of extra vino due to the unusual shape, you can rest assured that it contains the standard 75cl.
The van that hides a secret
Introducing the Camper Vin, a hilariously awesome box of wine that’s going to be revving its way into your local Asda just in time for the Bank Holiday weekend. It’s the equivalent of 3 bottles of Chenin Blanc (or 18 small glasses, but who needs those?) and you can get your hands on it for just £15. All aboard!
The bag that tells the truth
Ever had your shopping bags make that really loud ‘clink’ noise, because they’re full of nothing but bottles of wine? Yep, so have we. But now you can just tell the world you’re buying prosecco because you deserve it and it tastes like happiness.

Seriously, that’s it’s actual name. Quite literally a wine rack. This sports bra can be inflated with wine and has a tube leading to your mouth so you can drink as your run. It might actually make jogging enjoyable! (Maybe)
