My Wine Accessory Suggestions 

1. Forget about broken corks and bottles! I have this electric wine opener and it has changed my life! This is one kitchen appliance I didn't mind buying ;)
 

2. Spice up your boring wine glasses and have some fun! 

3. You give your beer a coozie, so give your wine a woozie!  These woozies help keep your wine colder longer.  I keep a stash of these handy for outdoor patio parties and another stash in my beach bag.
