Creating A Lasting Impression
Everybody knows for a fact that when it comes to giving gifts, we need to make a big
impression. We have to give a gift that the recipient will truly appreciate and a gift that
they will remember for a long time. So, just what kind of gift should you give someone in
order to make a lasting impression?
One great gift idea that you should consider giving is a wine gift basket.

very tasteful gift that the recipient will truly appreciate especially if he or she is a wine

if you are planning to give it to a wine enthusiast. This will only lead to embarrassment
on your part and it will also be a wine gift that the recipient will not likely drink.
If you don’t know anything about wines, try to ask the winery salesperson about the
selections available. They will be more than happy to assist you and you will learn a
thing or two about wines.

You really don’t have to go overboard when it comes to choosing wines. Mid range
wines are exceptional. However, if you want to make the gift extra special, go for vintage
wines. They are more expensive than mid range wines but they will surely be appreciated
more by the recipient especially if the person receiving the gift is a wine connoisseur.
Because you will be giving a wine gift basket, make sure that you fill the basket with
other goodies other than the wine. Chocolates go well with some wines while other wines
go great with bread. For example, Merlot, Cabernet, and Zinfandel go well with dark
chocolates while Pinot Noir goes well with milk and creamy chocolates.
Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc are types of wine that go well with cheese and bread.
Also, most red wines are great with slices of prime meat, such as ham and deli.
You should also include a wine bottle opener as well as a couple of wine glasses in the
basket. This will add to the elegance of the gift.
When it comes to decorating the wine gift basket, you should try considering putting
ribbons on the basket handle. A white and red silk or cotton dining napkin will also work
great to enhance the look of the wine gift basket.
These are basically the things that you have to include in your wine gift basket. By
following these tips, you can be sure that you will be able to create a wine gift basket that
the receiver will truly appreciate and also one that will create a lasting impression.
