Gifting Wine? Make it Fancy!

Wine is an incredibly popular hostess gift - it’s easy, generally fool-proof, and gender neutral. And in Ohio, you don’t have to go to a state liquor store to get some, making it incredibly convenient too. But how do you make a bottle of wine look fancier than a regular bottle of wine? I have some ideas!

Hang on to that leftover ribbon form the holidays! One of my favorite tips is to grab some leftover ribbon from the holidays (or snag them from gifts that you receive) and tie them in a bow around the neck of the bottle. If it’s around the holidays and you have some ornaments around, hanging one around the neck is a nice extra touch.

Have some metallic Sharpies on hand: Sharpies are great, and metallic oil-based Sharpies are even better because they write on glass. Write a sweet message on the wine bottle for a personalized touch! They come in silver, gold, and copper.

Stuff a stocking: This one is only really applicable around the Holidays, but if you have some extra stockings around (hello after-Christmas sales), then you simply put the bottle of wine in the stocking and it’s all wrapped and ready to go!
