The Best Wedding Gift Idea +

If you’re anything like me when an event approaches, you can’t settle for something on the registry that may have already been purchased for the lovely bride and groom.

I like to customize things for others because it feels a little more personal + thoughtful, which usually will make anyone feel special. And that’s what you want to do when there is a huge event for someone!

So my cousin got married + I obviously wanted to give them something that would last a long time, as well as regularly be used….and what can’t you go wrong with? WINE.

Thanksgiving? Wine.

Valentines Day? Rosé.

Christmas?? Wine.

New Year’s Eve? Pop open a bottle.

Traveling? What the hell. Wine.

I ordered a custom wine rack from Robert’s Craft Shop. There are multiple fonts, colors and wood styles to choose from. For me, simple and elegant did it nicely.

Then I went to a few different places to get a few wine bottles I love. In this case, I wanted a variety of colored tops for a variety of types of wine – different flavors suiting different events or holidays.

Hint: If you’re ballin on a budget, Trader Joe’s has some AMAZING wine for under $10!

Once I found bottles in the shape and colors I was looking for, I removed the previous label by soaking the bottles is lukewarm water with baking soda overnight – carefully avoiding the foiled tops.

After cleaning up the bottles, I was ready to put on my new labels which I customized for the newlyweds.

I ordered these sleek and clean looking labels from Pria&co. The shop had great ratings and included a useful guide for picking out bottles + relabeling.

They have a label for any holiday or event you choose.

And voila! Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

You have a beautiful custom gift for the bride + groom you love. Now let’s see if they can make it to each holiday before drinking them all 😝
