Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea: Personalized Wine Bottles

Teacher Appreciation Gifts: Personalized Wine | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
National Teacher Appreciation week is coming up May 4-8th! Since returning back to work, I rely pretty heavily upon the teachers at my son’s daycare, and they truly deserve some appreciation. Now that my son is entering his “terrible twos,” I wanted our gift to be a little more lighthearted. I know all the teachers at his daycare on a very personal level, and knew they would all find our gift to be funny.

We purchased wine for the teachers and then applied a custom label with his photo along with the phrase, “Our child might be the reason you drink, so enjoy this bottle on us!” We also included a personalized “thank you” gift tag on each bottle for the finishing touch.

  1. do they come in quantitys ? How many & the cost ? They are very cute and I’m very interested in buying some . . Cute idea .
    Thank You

  2. I saw you guys on the today show,so cool!!!! too bad Jay Leno’s joke kind of sent it to a different place. Great idea !!!!

  3. Can I request a slight modification to the wording without it being a big thing\expense. Basically change ‘our’ and ‘us’ to ‘my’ and ‘me’.

  4. I made a case of these for my kids’ teachers and they were SO well received!

    My advice, for what it’s worth — before you buy a case of wine for these, test a bottle to be sure the label comes off nicely. They vary A LOT. I had some that took two days of soaking with an oxy-powered laundry powder solution, and others that came off in less than an hour. Beaujolais Nouveau by Georges duBoeuf labels came off like a dream!

    Also, I used 3/8 inch ribbon, and it was sightly challenging to get through the hang tags. I ripped a few before I perfected my ribbon rolling technique. So maybe get a few extra hang tags or try thinner ribbon!

    • Hi Roxanne,

      Yeah, some of those wine labels can be really difficult to remove. We like to soak the tough ones for an hour or two, and we’ll use a butter knife to pull up as much of the label as we can. Goo gone is perfect for removing the glue from the previous label, and then we’ll rub some rubbing alcohol over the glass to make sure it’s nice and dry for the new label.

      Anyway, thanks for your tips! We’re glad glad your kids’ teachers liked them. 🙂
