Bridal Shower Gift Idea: Basket of Wine for Marriage Milestones

If your friend is a big wine lover and you’re stuck on what to get her as a bridal shower gift, the search ends now. Why not make her a personalized wine basket for each of her marriage milestones?


I made this wine basket for a good friend who recently got married and she absolutely loved this gift. The creative key to this gift idea is to choose a wine label that represents each marriage milestone. And for each bottle, write a thoughtful or quirky message for the bride-to-be and her fiancé to enjoy  when the time comes for them to celebrate that special occasion.


Here are the wine bottles I chose for each of the five special marriage occasions: honeymoon, first wedding anniversary, first home, first dinner party and first baby. I included below the messages I wrote for each bottle/occasion.

HONEYMOON: French Kiss (Cabernet Merlot)


FIRST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: Layer Cake (Cabernet Sauvignon)


FIRST HOME: Big House (Pinot Grigio)


FIRST DINNER PARTY: Group of Seven (Cabernet Sauvignon) 


FIRST BABY: Barefoot Bubbly (Champagne)
