So I have the most disturbing thing happen to me today. I was invited to a birthday party and when I asked what I could bring, they said nothing so I was like ok no problem. The disturbing or shocking thing that happend was when I mentioned I bought a bottle of wine for the birthday boy he got offended that I was bringing alcohol.
Now it wasn’t the alcohol that offended him, it was that he said he stocked up on alcohol already and didn’t need any more. Anyways, I thought that was ridiculous as wine is a perfectly fabulous and suitable gift for anyone. Especially a $70 Barolo. Sooo…it got me thinking, what if others don’t see a nice bottle of wine as a good gift for a birthday or a wedding, or what if the bride and groom are giving away bottles and someone sees it as being rude or not appropriate (believe me, it completely shocked me) so I started searching my favorite online merchants for gifts and favors and came up with a few ideas for you all if you are wine lovers or are attending an event and need a gift or favor and love wine as much as I do. (Just so you know, the one wine gift I think is always innapropriate and I will not be recommending are those tacky *ss wine glass charms. They are only cute for themed parties and if they are unique.)
So there isn’t much special about these, but they are classic, practical and usefull which is something that works as a wedding favor or for a gift when you need to give to many people at once. They also work if you are a caterer or restaraunt owner and are doing a Valentines special or something.
It is the heart shaped wine stopper and bottle topper. The wine stopper works like a cork for when your bottle is already opened and you need to protect or store it, or just need something to plug the bottle of wine between pours. The heart shaped wine topper has a minimum order of 24 at $4 a piece and as you order more the price decreases. The heart shaped wine stopper measures 5″ long is made of chrome and comes in a lovely black and white gift wrap. This wedding favor comes from the cheers wedding favor company.
Now this is something that is pretty fabulous that everyone will love to not only play with, but it is a gift and favor that envokes participation in your wedding, makes your pictures look fabulous and is fun for everyone who gets one. It is the bubbles champagne bottles and a delight for wine lovers and kids.
Something stereotypical about weddings and the most fabulous of wedding photos with brides, grooms and straight couples are the couple leaving the church or building and everyone standing outside and bubbles in the air. Why not give everyone at the ceremony a bubble kit that looks like champagne and encourage them all to blow bubbles as you walk out into the world a newly happily married couple. It’ll look fabulous in the photos and is fun for everyone at the wedding to do. The champagne bubble favors are 3.75 inches tall and contain one ounce of bubble solution. They are also the perfect way to set a mood for you when you are walking into your wedding reception, just make sure noone spills so you do not slip on the floor.
This next favor is the chocolate champagne and bucket wedding favor. This gay wedding diva styled favor is a sparkling chocolate champagne bottle that makes a simply stunning decoration at each place setting. Each chocolate champagne and bucket wedding favor includes the 2-ounce chocolate bottle wrapped and inserted (before it ships to you or your wedding) in silver foil and then placed in a mini silver plated ice bucket that is filled with a fabulous metallic shred. Each favor is then embellished with a white ribbon personalized with your names and wedding date in silver. Once your guests have enjoyed their “champagne” they will also discover that the “bucket” is actually a toothpick holder! For me, this favor screams diva, drag queen and just plain fabulous. It is a definite must have at your wedding if you are a fan of the lifestyle of the diva, want to make a statement, enjoy Elton John, Liberace or any of the other great excentric gay performers of our time.
