While you are searching for the perfect bottle to share, here are some ideas to consider for the gift wrap:
2. Make a wine bottle sleeve. This is for that sweater that you can’t donate because of the holes in it or the fact it shrunk in the wash. Simply snip off a sleeve and tie with a ribbon. If it is cold outside, this will keep the reds at a good temperature as you travel to the party.
3. Fabric gift bags make extra special gifts themselves. These adorable presents are “easy to make and encourage the recipient to reuse the wrapping, instead of tossing it in the trash.”
4. Attach a little pouch of mulling spices to the gift. Mulling spices include orange peel, allspice, cinnamon, anise, and cloves. For this recipe red wine is brewed with the spices for a special holiday hot tottie.
