Wine is an ideal holiday gift and will literally make you the toast of the party. First, you will forever be hailed as a thoughtful gift-giver if you choose a bottle that has some personal significance to the recipient. Keep your ears open during the year for your family and friends’ wine preferences. Simply knowing what varietal or appellation they enjoy shows that you care and customized their gift. The perfect Port for your difficult Father-in-Law could make his heart grow 3 sizes—like the Grinch. Imagery Wines also have the added benefit of having cool labels. Scan our current releases and see if any of the label art reminds you of a loved one or embodies a story that you share.
The best thing about gifting wine is that shopping online is seamless and you can send it directly to the recipient’s address. We have even organized fun gift packs that offer variety and tremendous value. With Holiday Gift Packs like Taste of Bordeaux, it’s the closest thing to winter vacation in France. For White Wine only drinkers, we have the perfect bundle entitled Dreaming of a White Holiday. Rare, worldly wines like Malbec, Tempranillo, and Lagrein will broaden the horizon of everyone from aspiring wino to seasoned connoisseur.

Remember, Wine always trumps Fruitcake. Now here are the Top 5 Ways to Wrap a Wine Bottle
1. Recycled Sweater Wine Bottle Bag
Turn an old Holiday Sweater into a gift bag. This blog from Lesley Litrento explains the process

This is perfect for the helpless husband still struggling with gift wrap. Such hilarious cards as “Egg Nog is for sissies” or “Holiday Survival Kit” will spread cheer. Check these cards on Etsy that will make your kooky Aunt roll in laughter
