Creative Ways to Wrap Wine Bottles

Wine bottles are a classic gift, but can be tricky to wrap because of their uneven proportions and irregular shape. Using a flexible, attractive material to wrap a wine bottle is a simple way to solve the problem. Some creative wraps go beyond mere function to become attractive gifts in their own right.

Furoshiki

Furoshiki is a Japanese style of attractive gift-wrapping using squares of cloth. It is an elegant and environmentally friendly way to wrap wine bottles. Place the bottle in the centre of a large silk scarf or other square of cloth. Lift two opposite corners up, ruffle them attractively, and bind them to the bottle's neck with a rubber band or ribbon. Wrap the remaining corners to cover the rest of the bottle and tie their ends together in a bow.

Foil

Foil is a cheap and easy gift-wrapping material, especially for irregular objects like wine bottles. Simply take a long sheet of foil and crush it tightly around the bottle for a simple and eye-catching wrap. If you have a little more patience, wrap an unwrinkled sheet of foil carefully around the body of the bottle and gently gather it at the neck. Secure it with a touch of glue inside the seam and add a ribbon for a touch of colour.

Clothing

That's right; using attractive articles of clothing to wrap wine bottles can be simple and highly attractive. It also eliminates waste and gives you a chance to enhance your gift of wine with another gift that will bring lasting memories and long use. Wrap a bottle in a cosy winter scarf, tie a classy tie around its neck or, for a more playful solution, slide the bottle into a huge sock puppet.

Gift Bags

Tall, skinny gift bags are a classic way to wrap a gift of wine. Many companies sell wine gift bags with clever messages or attractive patterns. For a decorative touch, fill the bag with crepe paper before putting in the bottle, or tie a ribbon around the bag handles. While gift bags can be as elaborate as you want, they also make a great option when you're in a hurry, especially since they are available for purchase at most wine shops.
