Wine gift baskets always make great presents, especially in the holiday season. The challenge is personalization. Most companies give you no choice about the items in the basket and no way to make it special for the person receiving it. You could build your own basket from the ground up, but that takes considerable time and energy.
Personalized wine gift baskets make a good intermediate. Some of these allow you to add in a personal touch, like a label with your gift recipient’s name or an engraving on the bottle of wine. Others give you some control over parts of the basket. For example, you might be able to choose the wine that is included or alter some of the snacks.
If that's not cool enough, try Wine Down Box, a monthly wine and cheese box with a truly interesting wine selection!
Mom’s Special Things Gift Basket
