Like many moms, I like to enjoy a nice bottle (or glass) of wine. When a friend has a birthday or celebration, I like to bring a special bottle to toast the occasion. Just a plain bottle of wine that anyone can buy at your local store seems so boring. Yes, I can put a pretty ribbon on it or find a fancy wine bag.Still it is just a normal bottle of wine. I want something that will stand out and sit proudly on the gift table. I've found my bottle of wine. It's an etched bottle from Etched Expressions.
First, the wine enthusiasts will be pleased with the wine selection. These wines aren't two buck chuck with a fancy design. The company offers high quality California wines. Choose either house wines or nationally known brands, you can find an option that is your recipient's favorite varietal.
Now, the fun part is creating an etching that will express exactly the sentiment that you want to convey. The company offers variety of standard designs, which can be personalized with up to four lines of text. Also, you can get a fully customized design. Whether it is your company's logo or your family crest, you can create a bottle that expresses your personal sentiment.
The best part of these etched wine bottles is that you can order them just like a bouquet of flowers. In about 1 week from order to delivery, you can give your mom, sister or prospective client an unique and memorable gift.
I think that these bottles of wine would be great for wedding parties. From parents of the bride and groom to the wedding party, I could see these bottles as special gifts left in the hotel rooms on the night of a wedding. Not only could guests enjoy the libation, they had a memento to remember the special day.
I have a bottle from Etched Expressions and I love it. Of course, since I enjoy a good glass of vino, I opened my bottle. The La Terre Cabernet Sauvigon was robust yet not overpowering. A very pleasant bottle of wine to enjoy out on the deck.
The fun part was that the bottle had an adorable Happy Birthday design. This bottle wasn't a sticker that could fade or become discolored with dripped wine. I can see many uses for the bottle after I drank the wine. From a candle holder to shelf memento, this bottle won't end up in the recycling bin.
Etched wine ranges in price depending on the design and wine chosen. Prices begin at $65. This fee includes the wine, set-up, etch, single paint color and packaging. More detailed designs or multi-color jobs are slightly more. This cost does not include shipping.
