The popularity of handmade gifts has risen both because of their uniqueness, and because of the craftsmanship and labour of love that goes into creating them. With the holidays fast approaching, we wanted to provide you with some craft winemaking gift inspirations to help you step up your holiday gifting. The average wine kit makes about 30 bottles of wine, so there are many ways to leverage craft wine for use during the holidays—outside of enjoying with meals, or on its own of course!
Holiday Wine Card
Wine bottle holiday cards are a new take on traditional holiday cards that are extra fun, as the recipient can drink them, and they are simple to do, so long as you plan ahead. Craft your favourite wine, then create a custom label with your holiday greeting.
DIY Gift Basket
Create a fully personalized gift basket for that special someone in your life that shows them how thoughtful you are! Along with a bottle or 2 of wine, add a few of their favourite things to the box, whether it’s chocolate, books, candles, makeup, seasonings, etc. Wrap in cellophane and tie on a big ribbon. This is a simple DIY gift that will be sure to delight anyone.
The holiday season is filled with dinner parties and holiday events for work, friends and family, and craft wine makes for the perfect hosting gift. You can add a personalized “Thank You” label to your craft wine, and voila—hosting gifts for the season! Take them to the next level by wrapping the bottle in fabric and securing with a ribbon.
Craft Winemaking Experience
While a handcrafted gift is special to receive, giving the gift of an experience or an activity also makes for a great gift! So why not give the gift of a craft winemaking experience with a gift certificate so that special someone can make their own wine.
