Which brings us to personalized wine as birthday gifts. Birthdays are by definition unique to a specific person, right? So it only makes sense that a personalized wine makes the perfect birthday gift. Here are some guiding thoughts to consider when creating the perfect personal wine:
PERSONALIZED LABEL BIRTHDAY WINE
Custom label wines are fast and relatively inexpensive to produce compared to, say, personalized etched / engraved wines. They also offer endless color and embellishments (emboss, deboss, foil stamp) that give your label a little extra design sizzle and personality.
PERSONALIZED ETCHED WINE FOR BIRTHDAY GIFTS
Custom etched wines, aka engraved wines, are entirely handmade. They take a little longer to make than custom labels, there’s a lot of artistry involved, thus they’re a little more expensive than personalized label wines. But they’re GORGEOUS, deeply etched and painted. And many of our customers consider them to be a bit more distinctive than custom label wines. One noted limitation, though: multiple colors. Each color addition can add an extra day of production – so we mostly produce gold / silver etched designs. However, we do offer some multicolored designs in case you like the look, don’t mind the cost, and have the time to spare.
Whichever you choose --- personalized label wines or personalized etched wines --- simply choose a look and tone of the label or etched design that suits the occasion and the recipient, and select a wine you think they might like, then personalize to your hearts content.
Is your friend / recipient fun and crazy? Is he always the life of the party? Come up with a fun, customized message that suits his personality. Is the personalized gift for your mother or father? Perhaps a more reserved, elegant look and message are warranted. Whichever you choose, they’ll love it. The gift is unique to them. Handmade, a one-of-a-kind. Just like the recipient him or herself.
Fun fact: we sell Cabernet Sauvignon and Sparking Wine / Champagne than anything else. We recommend the Reserve Cabernet or the Reserve Champagne. They’re both a lot of wine for the money.
