Why you need a unique wine stopper
Before we discuss our favorite options, let’s quickly explain why you need a unique wine stopper:
A wine stopper comes with multiple benefits! You probably already know about the risk of oxidation: when a wine is opened, oxygen can cause the vino to lose flavor and aroma.
Though you do need to let wines ‘breathe’ to bring out the full characteristics, too much oxygen can also ruin it. Or, simply put: if you don’t ‘stop’ the oxygen flow, your wine will spoil quickly. A bottle stopper allows you to create an airtight seal, keeping your wine tasting fresh, longer.
That said, a bottle stopper is the most affordable choice in wine preservation. If you really want to extend your wine’s drinkability by weeks, even months, you should invest in a Best Wine Preservation System.
However, if you’re on a budget, or actually plan on finishing the bottle within the next week or so, a unique wine stopper works just as well!
No need to finish the bottle
Another subsequent benefit is that you don’t have to finish a whole bottle in one sitting. A wine stopper gives you the option to switch wine varieties halfway through your drinking fun or put the bottle away when you’ve reached your limit.
We’ve all had a night where we asked ourselves: “Do I really want to open another bottle” because you weren’t sure whether you’d finish it. But with a wine stopper, the answer is simple: yes. As it enables you to finish the bottle a few days, or even a week (depending on the wine variety) later – without things going sour!
And, lastly: a unique wine stopper is fun. If you always choose a pair of shoes to match the outfit, why not choose a different wine stopper to match the occasion? A unique stopper is a perfect accessory to add some flair to dinner parties or wine tastings. If you like dressing up for the night, these designs allow you to also dress up your bottles in style…

Glass Butterfly Wine Bottle Stopper
We love that each butterfly-silhouette is hand-made by expert glass artisans, meaning no piece is identical. This means that you’ll receive a one-of-a-kind design, though still with the same shape and aesthetics as the item pictured of course.
The bottom part of the PrestigeHaus stopper is also made of quality metal with a rubber gasket, ensuring an airtight seal.
For the price listed, you really can’t deny this is a great value-for-money buy. Normally, artisan and hand-crafted wine accessories will set you back a pretty penny, but this delicate butterfly won’t make your wallet flutter away in panic.

We love that the topper is quite compact, making it easier to place bottles in the fridge when inserted. Unlike other, larger toppers, that sometimes can be a bit of a hassle if you want to keep your wines chilled.

The Owltoppers Bottle Stoppers Set
These toppers all feature an adorable owl-silhouette detailing. You’ll receive 4 different colors in each pack: ‘dining room red’, ‘decadent purple’, ‘peacock blue’, and ‘olive green’.
Now, we don’t know how much wine the makers had to drink when they named these colors (‘dining room red’ – really?) but we can assure you: their weird color definitions is the only thing slightly funky about these toppers…
We can’t really fault them on anything else. The Owltoppers Bottle Stoppers Set is simply an excellent choice for everyday wine accessories. It’s made of premium, hygienic silicone and even comes with a 60-Day Manufacturer Guarantee.
This guarantee means that if you’re not satisfied with your owls, you can simply request a full refund, no questions asked.

Peacock Wine Bottle Stopper by CLYDD
The pretty Peacock Wine Bottle Stopper might look like a delicate glass ornament, but this quality design is actually made of flexible silicone. This means you don’t have to worry about breaking or cracking it, even when you might be a bit wobbly after a night of wine fun.
We really like the elaborate peacock-detailing, where each feather is well-defined. This detail makes the stopper look, and feel, a lot more expensive than its actual, budget pricing. The chic peacock is designed to fit standard-sized wine bottles (750ml) and ensures a firm, airtight seal to keep vino tasting fresh, longer.
The swanky Peacock Wine Bottle Stopper by CLYDD is also available in 5 different colors: Green, White, Blue, Pink, and Purple. Allowing you to pick the one that matches your style/decor best.
Cork Pops Royal Bottle Stopper
This sleek wine stopper fits nearly all regular-sized wine bottles and is easy to insert by simply pushing it down a bottleneck. The bottom part of the Cork Pops Royal Bottle Stopper is made of rubber, to help create an airtight, secure seal. The top part of this modern design has a beautiful copper sheen and is made of brass, ensuring it doesn’t tarnish and retains its shine.
We love the simple, modern appeal of this unique wine stoppers option. Its stylish aesthetics make it look like a designer-piece. None of your dinner guests or friends will suspect you bought it for a few bucks online…
Though, we’ll admit: whenever we score a cheap deal that looks expensive, the first thing we do is enthuse about it to others. When they say “That stopper looks fancy,” our instant response is, “IT WAS ONLY TEN DOLLARS”. So, you can either impress your friends with the illusion of high-end taste or impress than with your amazing eye for a great deal. But this beautiful wine stopper by Cork Pops is a steal regardless!
Another bonus is that the Cork Pops Royal Bottle Stopper comes in a ‘lovely gift box’ according to the manufacturer, which would mean it’s instantly ready-to-gift to your design-loving friends.
Stylish, cheap, and functional: it’s a minimalistic stopper with maximum value!
Corki Wine Beverage Bottle Stopper
This bottle stopper is fully made of food-grade silicone: flexible for easy insertion, dishwasher-safe, and durable for long-term enjoyment. The silhouette is that of a Corgi dog; the favorite breed of Queen Elizabeth.

This affordable, and adorable, corgi-inspired design also makes an original gift; and ensures you’ll never make the ‘faux paw’ of letting your wine spoil or go sour again!
Sir Perky Wine Bottle Stopper
This wine stopper is also happy to stop your wine from spoiling. The humorous silhouette is made of quality plastic, with two rubber rings around Perky’s naughty bits. When you want to create an airtight seal, simply put Sir Perky to work and insert his stopper into the bottle.
The design is also freestanding, meaning that when not in use, you can still display his prowess to your dinner or party guests.
The Sir Perky Wine Bottle Stopper makes a cheeky gift-idea to the wine lover in your life and will certainly get the conversation started. It’s certainly not the best, or highest quality, wine stopper on this list, but definitely one of the most entertaining.
Though, a word of warning: ‘Only use Happy Man for intended purposes only’, the manufacturer states. We wonder if they added that out of a negative consumer complaint, or as a precaution…
You can never have enough unique wine stoppers, as these designs are a fun way to accessorize your bottles, whilst preserving the quality of your vino. We can’t really determine which stopper is best for you, as it all depends on your style, budget, and needs.
However, if we had to pick a personal favorite, we’d have to include the Kate Aspen Geode Bottle Stopper because of its brilliant sparkle, and the Little Bird Wine Bottle Stopper Set for its outstanding value. But, you can’t really go wrong with any of these affordable, fun, and decorative designs!
