Imagine this; a co-worker or friend is a wine lover, and they’re about to retire. What do you give them? Here’s an idea that’s sure to have everyone saying, “Nailed it!” – an ice bucket filled with a curated collection of personalized wine gifts. Keep reading as we highlight some of the must-haves to include.
Instead of an ordinary gift basket, choose an ice bucket to hold the wine related gifts . This four quart wine bucket is found on Amazon.
Line the ice bucket with a personalized towel. Later this folded towel can be used when the wine or Champagne is poured to catch any drips from the bottle. You might want a towel with a custom message like this one: “There’s always time for a glass of wine – Michael is retired.”
Next, select a bottle of wine or a bottle of Champagne. Choose a retirement wine label from our pre-made designs to personalize with a funny or congratulatory message and customize with your desired message. Order just one custom label if that’s all you need for $3.75 plus shipping. Add the personalized wine label to the bottle and place inside the ice bucket.
Want wine labels with a playful or funny message? Here are just a few from which you can choose. Change the message on the label to fit your retiree and place on their favorite bottle of wine.
These retirement labels are self-adhesive and waterproof. They are 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches high. Either place them over the existing label or remove the old label and apply the new.
Include a couple of wine glasses inscribed with a funny retirement saying like – “I Can Wine All I Want I’m Retired.”
Don’t forget to add a wine bottle corkscrew like this that says, “It’s ALWAYS wine o’clock.”
A wine stopper is another useful gift for wine lovers. This one is engraved with “Happy Retirement.”
To complete the retirement gift bucket include custom party coasters with the saying of your choice. These coasters look like cork but in actuality are printed heavy coated paper and are recyclable. Great for one time use at retirement parties. They come in quantities as low as ten priced at $9.90 USD.
Here are a few ideas for retirement wine label sayings to jump-start your creativity:
- RETIRED – I don’t keep things bottled up
- Drinking wine is my day job; I’m retired
- I have the perfect retirement plan; my plan is to find wine
- This wine tastes like retirement
- I can wine all I want, I’m retired
- It’s always wine o’clock when you’re retired
