For many people when it comes to gift-giving it’s not simply a matter of something thoughtful or nice.  These days a lot of folks strive to present something unique, as stylish as it is functional, eco-friendly, and crafted by an artisan.  It can be a challenge to meet all those requirements and still remain within a reasonable budget. The answer is melted wine bottle gifts.

Wine Gift Ideas for Artistic People

We are delighted to offer these crafted pieces made from discarded glass bottles that are perfect for just about any gifting occasion; holidays, housewarmings, weddings,  just to name a few.

 

The concept is simple, any bottle can be melted into a functional serving tray or plate with the label reattached on the bottom to make safe for food.

 

We’ve partnered with a family owned company who uses recycled wine bottles (as well as beer and liquor bottles) and create fantastic kitchen accessories from them.

 

How to Make a Wine Bottle Cheese Board?

Flattened wine bottles are crafted through a process known as bottle slumping.  The artisan gradually heats the bottle in a kiln to temperatures as a high as 1400° F then slowly decreasing the bottle until allowed to cool at room temperature.  Regardless of the occasion behind the gift (or if you’re indulging for yourself), these ingeniously melted wine bottles are wonderful ideas.

You can personalize your gift, whether it’s a serving tray or a cheeseboard fashioned from a bottle of wine or vodka.  They will create a custom wine label according to the bottle and brand with a personal message or the recipient’s name.  Instead of resorting to stores and gift registries you can surprise the happy couple with a flattened champagne bottle featuring the name of the couple and their special date on the label.  How appropriate for a new homeowner to celebrate their housewarming by cutting and serving limes on a flattened tequila bottle?  The possibilities are near endless for these wonderful gifts as they’re perfect for any occasion.
