If you’re anything like me, when a friend’s birthday comes around, you’re always excited about finding the perfect gift. However, milestone birthdays are a whole different beast. They are one of those occasions in life where people often take a moment and think Woah, look how far I’ve come! So, as far as birthday gifts go, it’s got to be a good one!
This year I’ve got a couple friends turning 30 and 40, which is kind of crazy and exciting. I’ve been friends with most of them for 10+ years (some even 20+ years), which is something I’m so grateful for, so I really wanted to find a gift that would show each of them how much their friendship has meant to me.
Rather than going out and trying to find a gift, I wanted to come up with something a bit more personal. Since I’ve got a lot of great moments with all of them captured on photo, I thought it would be a unique idea to take a couple of old and new photos to create a little retrospective of our friendship with Evermine’s photo wine labels, because it’s all about the memories, and, like a fine wine, friendships get better with age!
For this gift idea, all you need to do is gather your photos and buy a bottle (or several bottles) of your friend or family member’s favorite wine. My friend Katrina was the first to turn 30 this year, so for her set of wine labels, I chose our Modern Museo style because it has a clean look, space where you can upload your own photo, over 20 colors to choose from, and enough text space for a short personal message.
This gift idea is easy, yet very meaningful, so for your friend or family member’s next milestone birthday, gather them over for a nice dinner, pop open some bubbly or wine, and say cheers to long lasting friendships and family!
And don’t forget to check out our video tutorial on how to apply our wine labels to your bottles!
