When it comes to wine, there's not much to complain about. In fact, it's essentially the only thing that gets us through the end of a long work week. (That and the prospect of sleeping in and devouring a stack of pancakes on Saturday morning. But we digress.)

Though sipping on Chardonnay or a stiff red is always a good time, the routine has gotten a little stale. Luckily for us, the world of wine product creators has taken a more humorous approach to some of its latest offerings, making the act of drinking a little less desperate and more entertaining (though there will always be that fine line).

Those notes of blackberry and vanilla may be getting lost on the tongue but this candle offers drinkers a full sensory experience. Because why should you just sip your wine when you can also smell it?

The only thing better than a wine decanter is a wine decanter with little wine decanters hanging off it. A conversation piece and a way to get your best wine properly aerated.
