One of my dear old friends from high school is getting married in a couple weeks and we just had her bridal shower and bachelorette party yesterday. Since I had already purchased her wedding gift and had it shipped, and our local Macy's didn't have anything in stock on her registry, I was forced to give an alternative shower gift.
One of my college roommates got me this for my bridal shower (ahem... like 10 years ago!) and I absolutely LOVE the idea!
It's 3 bottles of wine - one to be drank on their first anniversary, one on their 5th anniversary and one on their 10th anniversary. Now, I am no wine connoisseur so I looked to the wine department at Binny's to help pick out wines that would age, 5-10 years. The 10 year bottle had to be an import from France because most of the wines made in the U.S. needed to be drank within 1-3 years. (why is that I wonder?)
So I put the 3 wines and some kitchen cloths in a picnic basket and presto, a unique, perfect gift for a couple of wine drinkers getting hitched! And what a great reminder of your friendship on these milestone anniversaries!
