My BFF and I were looking for the perfect gift for a friend of ours (Jack) who was turning 65, and I think we found it! I bought a good bottle of wine (when is wine NOT a great gift?!), and BFF and I reworked the label to personalize it.
We used two squares of decorative contact paper to cover up the existing front and back labels. Then I printed two labels with personalized text and a photo from long ago.
The new front label says:
Cher Ami Vineyards
An old, fine-bodied white wine with crisp notes
of love and best wishes, perfect for drinking at
your lake house with old friends.
BFF and I made up the French-sounding name of the vineyard, 1952 is when Jack was born (yes, we’re old!), and Kilpatrick is her last name.
The back label says:
Bottled by Madison Bottling Company in Houston, Texas
WARNINGS: According to the Surgeon General, consumption of this product could lead to (1) hilarity and frivolity; (2) laxity during grandma duties; and (3) more fun with the HaHa’s.
CONTAINS BIRTHDAY WISHES FROM BABS & DEBBIE
Madison was our high school in Houston, and the rest was written specifically with Jack in mind.
This proved to be the perfect gift — easy to do and loved by the recipient. A win-win for all!
