I haven’t really come across anyone who doesn’t love the idea or giving or receiving wine as a gift. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift to give for an upcoming celebration, here are three reasons that make a bottle of wine an absolutely delightful present.
It’s a thoughtful gift.
Say you have a friend who recently got engaged and loves white wine, Prosecco to be exact, why not include a bottle along with the other meaningful gifts that you would like to send them and their fiancé as a congratulatory gift.
In the UK, wine stores offer delivery services and will even help you in choosing the best bottle of wine for the recipient. If you have no idea which type of wine to give but do know what their favorite dish is, you can pick a bottle of wine that they can pair with the dish. Either way, it will tell the recipient that you know them well enough, that the bottle of wine they received is just perfect for them.
It’s a great way to say thanks.
You said yes to dinner at a friend’s house a week ago, and it’s tonight, but it slipped your mind. Too late to hit the shops to find a hostess gift? A bottle of wine is the perfect lifesaver and a great way to make a good impression as well.
As a guest, it is customary to bring something for the dinner host, and a bottle of wine is just the perfect thing to bring. It’s the choice of gift for those who want to give something that demonstrates class, sophistication, and an ultra-modern approach in gift giving.
Also, how can anyone go wrong with a bottle of wine? Hardly anyone goes wrong when giving a bottle of wine as a gift. The host may or may not open it on the spot, but by including a note that says, “for your cellar” will tell the receiver that it’s your way of thanking them for inviting you to their home, to share a meal with them.
It’s the perfect symbolic gift.
Vintage wines come in different ages, and what better way to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday than with a bottle of vintage wine, dating from the recipient’s wedding year or birth year.
Finding a vintage from a well-known winemaker that reflects the exact year that marks the celebration makes it even more special and more meaningful.
And those who understand wines know that a bottle of wine only gets better with age; it’s the same with relationships and friendships that have stood the test of time — precisely the reason that makes a special bottle wine the perfect gift for to celebrate the occasion.
So, if you haven’t figured out what gift to give for that upcoming celebration which you’ll be attending, waste no time and start looking for the perfect type of wine that will suit the occasion and the preference of the receiver. Not sure where to start?
You can find a guide for the ideal wine for every occasion and pair with food. A bottle of wine is one of the most personal, most thoughtful gifts you can ever give and receive, so the next time you give or receive one, you’ll know how much thought was put into selecting that bottle that’s just for you.
