Every year, there are certain people that I struggle to find that “perfect gift” for. You know the one – they have everything and nothing you buy them will really matter, in the long run. So, you end up buying them a cheesy pre-made Christmas gift from a discount store, not know if they’ll really like it or not. That’s NOT happening this year. I’m opting for wine. Not just any wine, chocolate wine – ChocolatRouge Wine to be exact.
I needed a gift for a dear friend who is low maintenance and sometimes difficult to buy for. She has kids and doesn’t have a lot of time to herself. My vision is to create her an amazing gift basket full of yummy items that she can enjoy after the kids are already in bed. I’m going to call it the ChocolatRouge Relaxation Creation.
My trip to the store ended up very sweet (pun intended). I grabbed a variety of chocolate I was sure she was to like. I also got everything needed to package this Relaxation Creation up including a box, tissue paper, icicles (yes, they made a mess) and a greeting card. Of course, I got ChocolatRouge Wine; I opted for the Sweet Red. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the smut magazine to relax with while enjoying all her goodies.
I built up the bottom of the box a bit with the boring tissue paper and saved the decorated sheets for the visual part. After coating that with the shiny icicles, my platform was ready for all the goods. I carefully placed all the delicious, mouth watering sweets inside and BOOM – it was that easy.
One of my favorite gems that I found to include in my friends “ChocolatRouge Relaxation Creation” gift basket was this cute ornament. It says “Love the Wine You’re With.” How perfect for this gift!
Confession: I enjoyed some of my own ChocolatRouge Wine while preparing my Relaxation Creation gift. My bottle wanted to get a little crazy and spread the Holiday Cheer by dressing up as Santa Clause. I’m pretty sure my wine lost its mind… or maybe that was me. In any case, I’m sure my friend is going to LOVE her gift – it’s such a wonderful idea!
