How to Make the Perfect Advent Calendar for Wine Lovers!
If you know someone who likes their wine then this is the PERFECT advent calendar! My hubby made it a few years ago after B was born and it was such a lovely gesture. He knew I missed drinking wine while I was pregnant and after b was born. It was just such a nice, thoughtful idea. I don’t think I’d had an advent calendar for years and it was a really nice adult spin on something that’s usually just cheapo chocolate!
Anyways, I thought I’d write it down because it was so impressive and someone somewhere should do it again! Basically wrap up 24 mini bottles of wine. Now you could use full bottles but even for me that’s pushing it (laughing and crying emoticon)… Anyways here is what you need to get going with your customised advent calendar!
24 x mini bottles of wine. Now Weston-super-Mare has every supermarket you could ever want and you could probably pick up all 24 in the Sainsbury’s or ASDA! The hubby mixed it up a bit and added some red wines and sweeter wines that I wouldn’t typically go for.
Wrapping paper. He wrapped them up individually, which, for my wrap-phobic hubby was pretty impressive!
Tags. He used little stick-on tags to label each from 1 to 24. The final one was a small bottle of champagne.
And that’s it! Wrap up 24 bottles and label them 1 to 24. Easy! And quite possibly the best advent calendar EVER!!!
