Giving the Gift of Wine, Customized, NYC and Elsewhere

With Halloween behind us it is apparently time to think about holiday gifts.

Normally this would make me gag, but in the case of wine gift baskets–bring on Christmakwanzakah.

Bottlerocket is a fun wine store on West 19th Street (which I found out about via some free wine tastings).

In the store, wines are arranged according to what types of foods they’d go well with: “take out,” “seafood,” “treats,” etc.

Another perk of this store is its gift baskets, ahem, pails, which you can custom-fill with various wines, champagnes, wine/food-themed books and magazines, and wine accessories… whatever would delight or inspire. They do the wrapping and the shipping. You don’t have to be in NYC to give or to receive one of these pails.

Couldn’t December come a little faster? Just kidding.

    I’m obviously too late for the holiday season on this one, but I thought I’d share another cool, very customized wine gift.

    Signature Wines & Beverages lets you create personalized wine bottles. It’s print-on-demand wine!

    Rich ordered two bottles with a custom label that included a photo of us. We opened the champagne the night we got engaged, and we’re saving the merlot for our wedding. It was a very neat gift!
