“Beer is made by men, wine by God.” Well, if you are a fan of Martin Luther and a wine lover, there are chances that you already faithfully believe that.
People love wine. Despite the fact that it is alcohol, wine is considered good for human health. Evidences have shown that wine increases the lifespan of animals. The compound resveratrol, which is found in red wine, decreases mortality rate by 34%, says a Finnish study.
In addition to that, moderate consumption of wine promotes heart health and lowers the risk of several types of cancer. Some finds also reveal that red wine can help in weight loss, though it requires extensive digging and debate.
Stats suggest that the sale of wine is increasing each passing year. According to FoodAndWine.com, 2018 was a record-breaking year for wine auction. The most expensive wine sold last year was a standard bottle of Red Burgundy which crossed the $558,000 mark pretty easily in wine auction.
Gift Ideas for Wine Lovers
Wine makes a decent gift idea. If you know that the recipient loves wine and you want to gift something healthy, you could carry a uniquely designed wine bottle with personalized labels and stickers. However, if you are unsure whether or not they like it, you could consider going with sweets, candies and gourmet treats.
But if you are gifting wine, you must be looking for ways to make your gift presentable and unique. Here are 5 unique wine bottle gift ideas that you could try –
1. Wine Bottle Wrapped In Burlap and Lace Bow
Cut an old jute fabric in square keeping in mind the size (perimeter) of the wine bottle. You can get burlap and lace both from a nearby store.
Apply some glue on the bottle and carefully wrap the jute fabric on it. Allow the glue to dry and you are ready to do the lace decoration. Wrap and tie the lace on the bottle in bow knot.
2. Burlap Bow
You can create a bow from jute fabric itself to give your wine bottle a classic handcrafted feel. Check out the following infographic to learn how to make a burlap bow.
Master the art of making bow and glue it on the wine bottle to turn it into a piece of art.
3. Refashion Your Old Shirt
Everyone has a bulk of clothes they don’t use anymore. We can’t just throw these cloths away due to memories associated. And we can’t wear them either because they are old-fashioned.
You can use your old shirt to discover a new way of gifting wine.
Just cut the sleeve of an old, unused shirt. Do the needlework to close the bottom. Put the bottle in the sleeve and tie a label with some customized message.
Attach necktie and bowtie with your bottle to make it look more artistic and unique.
4. Christmas Theme Wine Bottle
Holidays are coming. You could give your wine bottles a Christmas theme adornment.
The bottles, as suggested by MadinCrafts.com, should be used for garden and home decoration. But you can take inspiration from this DIY design idea to make a cool wine bottle garnish.
5. Apply Custom Message Labels
It is the easiest and most unique way to customize wine bottles.
You can find the right size labels and ask iCustomLabel.com, the leading supplier of customized labels and stickers, to inscribe your personalized message. Peel and stick these labels directly on your bottle. And your customized wine bottle gift is ready.

Let’s end this blog with some of the etiquettes of gifting wine. Make sure that the recipient loves and drinks wine. If the host is a beer-man, your wine gift will be of no value to them.
Don’t expect wine getting served the same night. You should not and must not express that you want to gulp down that wine.
Leave the bottle even if they don’t drink it or if it is unopened. Take it back only if the person you are visiting tells you to.
Do put a sticker having their name and yours on the bottle, so they know it was a gift from you.
Take off the price tag. No matter how expensive the wine is, it is not cool to tell the host the price of bottle.
