I had the awesome pleasure of getting one of these bottles of wine etched with a personal message for my best friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I tried to wait as long as possible on this review so I could take her picture but my timing was off so I had to get this done before her birthday. But you will still see how beautiful the bottles are and how awesome the personalization can be from this company called Etching Expressions.
I found that it was interesting to note that the color of the cap determines which kind of wine you get with your personalization. The cap colors for the bottles differ. The cabernet comes with a red cap; the merlot with a light blue cap; the chardonnay with a bronze cap and the champagne comes with a gold foil cap.
So, it looks like Lynette will be getting the cabernet, which is fine, she loves most wines except for the chardonnay but if offered, she will drink one glass. Their cabernet is a savory blend of plum and berry flavors. I know she will like that because she is a fruit nut at heart.
You can choose from their own house wines or if you prefer a brand name that can be arranged as well. Each bottle is standard size 750ml wine bottle and is sold as a single wine bottle. You can have up to 4 lines of text (30 characters per line) for your personalization. Also, be sure to tell them which kind of wine you want. Oh, you can also choose champagne if that is more your style.
Here are some other examples of bottles that have been etched and personalized:
I thought this one was the most romantic and would be awesome for either Valentine's Day or an Anniversary. Course, if you are a true romantic, I don't guess it really matters if there is a special day or not. This is good any time of the year for someone who is truly in love.
I thought another great idea was the mini bottles that they have for weddings. I knew that somewhere I had seen them in a movie or something but it's not something I would have ever been able to afford or even if we could have, my husband's father is a Baptist preacher and he married us, so it was a rule that no liquor was allowed, which was fine, I really wasn't into it that anyway, but they are cute!
I thought the ones that were in the humor section were really cute! I should have thought of something like that for Lynette because I know she would have found it hilarious but my sentiment will go well also. But, next time, I am taking the humor route!
You can also get wooden crates to store or send your precious gift in to make it even more special or memorable.
