Every time you are invited to a party, special occasion celebration, holiday dinner or a simple at home dinner at your friend’s house, you feel the need to bring something to the host. To show up to the event empty-handed is a bit rude, anyway. If you either do not have time or are simply not sure what to gift wrap, it is always a great idea to wrap a bottle of nice quality wine. Wine gifts are the ultimate winners, regardless of whether the host is a passonate wine lover or does not like it at all. However, even though this is the best and the simplest gift idea, don’t just buy any kind of wine and above all, do not hand that bottle the way you bought it. Be creative with packaging. If you are clueless as to how to give wine as a gift, here are some tips we singled out for you.
The first step is to decide on a wine. If you know the host prefers red wine, go with that one. Also, buy a nice quality red wine. The most common ones are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are similar in aroma, texture and flavor and can be paired with most main course dishes. You’ll surely hit a home run with these two wine varietals. To make this gift even more unique, do not buy a domestic wine, but choose the one produced in France, Spain, Italy etc. Also, select a wine that comes in an intresting bottle. Sometimes, that’s more important than the flavor of the wine. With wide selection available on-line, you’ll surely find soemthing truly out of the ordinary. Now that you’ve chosen the wine, brainstorm on gift wrapping ideas. Think of color, material and gift wrapping techique. Gift wrap the wine in either nice wrapping paper or wine gift box and top it off with a nice bow. Maybe you can pack it in a beautiful basket with a nice set of glasses. Or you can order wine online, have them gift-wrap it and have it delivered directly to the host’s address. The wine gift delivery is a very unique way of gifting and is becoming more and more popular.
