Wine and spirits are always a great gift idea for those who enjoy a relaxing glass after work or during a dinner party. They are an excellent host/hostess gift too! While a wine bag from the liquor store is the easy route to deliver this gift, we have four great options that will make sure your gift will stand out from the crowd. What is so great about these ideas is that they can be used to creatively wrap anything that comes in a bottle, from homemade Coquito, mixers, or even fancy olive oils!
Tea Towel with Ribbon
This brilliant wrapping idea is two gifts in one! Order a bulk of new tea towels, either holiday themed or generic and use them to wrap each bottle of wine you give away this season. That way the tea towel can be used long after the bottle of wine has been enjoyed. Use twine or ribbon to secure the towel to the neck of the wine bottle. Check out this easy tuturial by Pieces to Treasure.
Glitter Bomb Wine/Champagne Bottle
Nothing screams the holidays like glitter! So enveloping a wine bottle in glitter is an OTT option for a very memorable gift. All it takes is some glue and glitter (we encourage biodegradable glitter options) to turn a bottle from boring to brilliant! We think Love Happy Alison’s simple run down on this DIY project is awesome!
What looks cozier than a cable knit sweater sleeve or some fuzzy socks to snuggle your wine bottle into? Socks and sweaters come in a variety of colors and will help make your gift stand out in a sea of wine bags. For a sweater, simply cut off the sleeve, sew it together, tie a ribbon like this tutorial by Istructables, and voila! As Sam’s Place demonstrates, socks let you be more creative in the design or wrapping!
DIY Pineapple Wrapped Wine/Champagne Bottle
If you have some extra craft time on your hands or really want to make an impression on your host/hostess, craft this pineapple wrapped wine bottle that will be all the rage on Instagram. With a glue gun, some tissue paper and a box of gold foiled chocolates, it’s two gifts in one, a bottle of spirits plus delicious chocolates!
