Ever wonder how to wrap a wine bottle? Read on…
Wine (or gin) is always my favourite go-to gift but until recently, I would really struggle to make it actually look like a presentable gift so today’s post is all about easy ways to wrap a wine bottle.
1. Use a wine bottle jumper
Yes, jumpers for wine bottles actually exist, and not only can you buy a cheeky Christmas jumper to take your bottle to the next level, some even come with little hats too! This set from Amazon is £9.99 (aff link) for four jumpers and their matching hats which might seem a lot for wrapping but you’d pay at least a pound for a nice gift bag and this isn’t much more when you break it down to £2.49 per jumper and hat! This is without a doubt my favourite way to wrap a wine bottle!
2. Add a bow and a Christmas ornament or some cute cookie cutters
Tie a nice ribbon around the neck of your bottle and add a Christmas decoration or a candy cane into the bow to make it look all pretty and festive. The wine in the pictures was for a friend of mine who loves to bake with her little girl so I bought her some unicorn cookie cutters to go with it
3. Pop it in a Christmas stocking
4. Add a twist to good old fashioned wrapping paper
I’m absolutely not going to try this one, even for you guys! It looks super simple but I know my version would look nothing like the finished bottle in this video. 😂
5. Use a re-usable gift bag
I’m really not a fan of using those wine bags that you can buy for £1-£2 in just about every supermarket and corner shop because most of the time, they’re just used once and then thrown away and some can’t even be recycled (I think it’s the ones with glitter on them that can’t be) so I prefer fabric ones that I know are more likely to be re-used by the person I gift them to. I’m not sure if you can buy cheaper online but I bought mine from Homesense for £2.49 which is only slightly more but really makes the gift look better as well as being a more sustainable option.
So next time you’re giving the gift of a bottle of wine, you’ll know exactly how to wrap it to make it look like the beautiful gift you want it to be!
