We really like Alessi products (see our other recommendations) because of their playful and high-quality designs. The Anna G. Corkscrew is yet another great design that would be perfect as a housewarming gift.
The corkscrew became very popular after it was introduced in 1994. Designed by architect and designer Alessandro Mendini, the form of the opener is taken from a real woman. It is rumored to be modeled after another famous Italian designer, Anna Gili. Regardless of who the corkscrew was designed to represent, you can enjoy Anna G's subtle smile as you twist her head to remove the cork from your favorite bottle of wine.
