Romantic Libations With DIY Wrapping

Few things say romance like a bottle of red wine, so why not decorate you and your honey’s favorite bottle of wine (or beer) to turn it into a sweet and heartfelt gift. Our advice?

Think back: was there a specific bottle you shared over an anniversary dinner? Or a wine bottled in a location that’s significant to your relationship? The details make your DIY gift even more meaningful. For wrapping inspiration, check out this tutorial on making your own V-Day Wine Wrappers.
