Campagnolo The Big Corkscrew

Some will argue that this is a pointless gesture, but wait… when it comes to presents aren’t pointless, funny gestures sometimes the best? Spending £138 on a corkscrew is slightly absurd, especially when you consider that it’s price point doesn’t actually reflect how well it does it’s job, it will open a bottle of wine the same way a £10 corkscrew will. But hell, it’s made by Campagnolo which is why it’s made my top 10 list.

Incase you didn’t know, Campagnolo is an Italian manufacturer of bicycle components with headquarters in Vicenza, Italy and whos components are often regarded as the pinnacle of bicycle components.

Buy them this if you honestly don’t care about the price tag and they love wine as much as they love cycling.

Buying tip: Make sure they have everything they want before buying this – they might resent you as the money could have been better spent on something they actually want or is more practical.
