Tips To Customize A Perfect Wine Gift Basket

Everyone likes to receive gifts, and one of the best gifts that you can give to someone is wine. Giving wine-related gifts is an elegant to celebrate an occasion or express your gratitude to someone. They are versatile, too—you can give them to a loved one, a colleague, or even your clients. A good bottle is often enough, but if you want to go the extra mile, then go ahead and give a wine gift basket. It will surely be appreciated. Here are some tips to help you customise a fantastic wine gift basket.

  • Choose a high-quality basket: Pick a suitable gift basket for the wine and other things that you are planning include. The common options are picnic and wicker baskets. Just be sure that the basket is sturdy and can handle the weight of the bottle of wine and the other items. Regardless of your choice, always line the bottom with paper cloth for added cushioning to prevent damage to the wine bottle and other contents.


  • Wine: You need to choose the most suitable wines for your recipient. If you are giving a wine gift basket to someone who is not particular with their type of wine, you can go for a simpler Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, or even a Merlot, all of which are recommended for beginners. Save the Cabernet Sauvignon and other complex wines for the wine experts and sophisticated recipients.
  • Food: Your gift basket will not be complete without cheese and crackers plus other types of food that go well with wine. Go for non-perishable cheeses like gouda. Add a pack of pasta, nuts, crackers, a jar of olives, smoked salmon, and other tasty options that go well with wine. You may add chocolates, too.


  • Accessories: Complete and personalise your wine gift basket with accessories such as glasses, aerators, charms, and wine stoppers. A wine journal is a good choice, too.

Have your wine gift basket customised and put together by a professional hamper designer or coordinator. There are online stores specialising in assembling gift hampers for every occasion, including wine gift baskets. They can save your time and money in finding and assembling an elegant hamper.
