Stop and Smell the Rosé: 2 Ways to Gift Wine

Stop and Smell the Rosé: 2 Ways to Gift Wine

It’s officially summer, which means it’s the season of BBQs, pool parties, patio brunches, and all the other outdoor events you love most. And as any regular party-goer knows, you should never show up empty-handed to an event hosted by a friend or family member.

Sure, wine is always a crowd favorite, but with a small amount of ribbon and tape—and don’t forget the cheese!—you can elevate a simple bottle into a hostess gift that steals the show. Get a little crafty with these two ideas for wrapping up a bottle of wine—now you just need to decide between rosé and Pinot Noir!

4. Fold the excess craft paper on the bottom of the bottle in, and tape it (like you’re wrapping a present).

5. Around the neck of the bottle, cinch the craft paper so the bottle shape is more defined.
