Handmade Holidays: Wine Bottle Upgrade

Handmade Holidays: Wine Bottle Upgrade

Here is gift idea inspired by a much loved present we received for our wedding!  Aunt Sheila sent us a case of hand-selected wine bottles, each wrapped up with a recipe to pair it with.  It was great because not only do we (of course) love an excellent bottle of wine, but having the recipes to go with them turns each bottle it in to an event, a special date night in or mini dinner party with friends. 

I loved this idea so much and wanted to turn it in to holiday gift inspiration, since, like most, I often wrap up a bottle of wine as a present for friends, hostesses and grab bags.  So here you have it!  Take a piece of a card stock, add some holiday trimmings (I used candy cane striped washi tape and a little glitter paint), and write out your favorite recipe to pair with the bottle!  Punch a hole in top, thread with ribbon, and add a person touch to your gift.  You could also do this with a bottle of liquor by substituting your favorite cocktail recipe.  Happy gifting!
