14 years ago when I got married, one of my favorite gifts we received was a melted wine bottle personalized with our wedding invitation. As far as cool wedding gift ideas, this one was icy!
Much to my husband’s annoyance, I spent quite a long time picking out the perfect invitation. When I finally found the perfect one, it was a relief. I was happy. He was happy it was over, and now we would be able to invite our guests on time.
So, I ordered them and picked up cartons full a few weeks later. Soon it was time to assemble them and mail them out. Off they went to our guests around the country. There were extras, but I didn’t have any special plans for them so sadly, they stayed in the box.
Flash forward several weeks later, we were opening our wedding gifts and found this melted wine bottle trivet. There are several things I love about it including:
- It has my beautiful invitation that I spent hours picking out
- It is something that I can hang up in my house as a remembrance of my wedding day
- It is functional and can be used to put hot dishes on
- It is wine themed – you must know by now how much that resonates with me!
Personal and Functional!
These melted wine bottles can include a favorite photo instead of an invitation. They also can be cheese plates instead of trivets. They make cool wedding gifts, but could just as well be the perfect anniversary, birthday, or holiday gift for the wine lover in your life.
