From family to close friends to your Secret Santa co-worker, holiday gift shopping can be time-consuming and the gifts can be expensive and generic.
But you can break that trend by giving the gift of wine from your wine making kit. One batch of wine can be a creative, inexpensive and time-saving gift that works for most, if not everyone, on your list.
Showcase Your Wine Making Skills
Everyone wants to give a gift that will stand out to the recipient, and what could be more unique than a bottle of your own homemade wine? With just one batch of wine, you have the chance to showcase your mastery of wine making supplies and the wine making process to your friends, family and co-workers.
Who knows? You may even create some return customers eager to share your creation with their closest friends and family members. The holiday season is a time for thoughtful giving, and using your wine making kit for more than hobby purposes is a great way to take deepen that tradition.
The possibilities with wine making kits are as plentiful as a wine shelf at a liquor store, and the same can be said of your bottles and wine labels.
Many wineries attempt to distinguish their wine from its competitors on the shelf by way of intriguing artwork or clever word play on their labels.
You have that same freedom to experiment with catchy names and interesting drawings, paintings, or pictures on your homemade wine labels. It’s even possible to customize each label to fit the personality and interests of the recipient, making it even more likely that you will stand out as a great gift giver.
Time Is Money
Often, the holiday shopping experience involves waiting in long lines at department stores, running from one end of the mall to the other searching for the perfect gift, fighting through traffic, and spending just as much time sorting and wrapping all those presents.
Creating gift wine with your home wine making set-up limits your time in congested stores and gift wrapping, simplifies your list, lowers your budget, and most likely will leave some wine left over for your personal enjoyment or for the traditional holiday meal with the family.
The best thing about giving your own homemade wine as a holiday gift is that the recipient knows you put a lot of effort into brightening their holidays.
