When I lived abroad in Florence, my Italian brother was a Champagne bottle cutting master. Using a Saber, like this ornate version from Barneys properly requires a honed technique, so be careful if you gift this to a novice, and hide it from the kids that like to play sword games.

Could these bottles be any more chic? Limited edition sparkling wineis a fun way to ring in the New Year. As the bottle states in gold handwriting, "The Party Starts Here" with Chandon's sleek set of three winter white bottles filled with bubbly.
