Likewise, the recipient will also be able to sample a drop of history with the Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon from 1961 that served as the official bubbly for the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981.

Such auspicious champagne, meanwhile, deserves fancy glassware. Enter Rosenthal Champagne flutes from Versace.
