I love the idea of a cute hostess gift… but with holiday festivities in full swing, sometimes it’s too much to come up with a unique gift idea. My husband and I always buy a nice case of wine at the beginning of the year to use as “thank you/we love you/happy birthday” gifts to friends and family… but the wine bag game is not where it should be (sometimes I don’t know if it’s worse to have to walk in public with some of these or give them as actual gifts…. ek) and I was determined to figure a Plan B.
I introduce you to the closest thing I’ll get to DIY – a wine gift bag… or wine wrap I guess I should say.
- gift wrap (I also love using craft paper that I’ve written on with Sharpie)
- Scotch tape
- Cut a piece of gift wrap large enough to fit around the wine bottle and fold free edges in to create a clean line.
- Secure with tape.
- Secure with a decorative ribbon and don’t forget to attach a note to your hostess or gift recipient (I also like to use the craft paper option to write my thank you note in large over-sized lettering).
Save yourself the $5+ per wine bag and let’s start a revolution… the wine wrap!
If your host doesn’t drink… flowers are always a no-brainer.
