Ideas That Will Help You Do It Right
Creating the Perfect Wine Gift Basket...
Giving gifts on special occasions, such as holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries have been a tradition for centuries. And, when it comes to gift giving, people tend to have a problem with one thing, which is figuring out what type of gift that they should give. If you are looking for the perfect gift to give, then nothing will come close to a wine gift basket.
You really can't go wrong with a wine gift basket unless the person you give it to doesn't drink. And, even if the person you give it to does not drink wine, they will still be able to enjoy the other goodies inside the basket.
However, even if wine gift baskets are considered to be a great gift idea, you have to remember that you need to do it right in order to make it even more special.
For starters, the wine you should include in the wine gift basket shouldn't be the cheap variety. Instead, try going for mid range bottles. This will taste great and it will surely be appreciated by the person receiving the gift. Besides, try putting yourself in the situation of the person receiving the wine gift basket. Surely you won't enjoy drinking a bottle of cheap wine, right?
You really don't have to go overboard when it comes to buying the wine for the gift basket. Vintage wines are great but they can be very expensive. If you don't have the cash for it, go for mid range bottles. If you don't know a thing about wines, try to ask a wine connoisseur or the clerk at the winery. They will be more than happy to help you out and you will also learn a thing or two about wines.
Along with the bottle of wine in the wine gift basket, you should also include a couple of wine glasses. A clear, crystal glass will do. Along with the glasses, you have to dress them up in your wine gift basket with wine charms. Place the charms at the base of the stem.
Although cheese can be a great addition to the wine gift basket as they are known to be great matches for wines, they are not really the best option. If you really want to play with the flavor and enhance the flavor of the wine, chocolates should be a great addition.
Now, when it comes to choosing chocolates, always remember that like wines, you should go for fine chocolates. A box or two of fine Belgian chocolate truffles are great. However, you need to remember that it's still important to pair the wine with the right chocolate. This means that if you are going to give away a bottle of dark wine or full bodied wine, you should go for dark chocolates and creamy or milk chocolates for light bodied wines.
Lastly, you have to decorate the wine gift basket. Do so with silk cloths, roses or rose petals, and ribbons. This will make the simple gift look a lot more elegant and tasteful.
By doing it right, you can be sure that the wine gift basket you give will be very special and it will be appreciated by the person you give it to.
