There’s an obvious and easy gift for any wine-lover on your list… a bottle of their (or your) favorite Missouri wine. Wine makes a great present, but it is not the easiest to wrap. Get creative and crafty with these unique DIY gift-wrapping ideas for wine bottles.

Add a country-chic touch to your gift with these super simple burlap gift bags. The corks attached to the end of the drawstring are a detail that is sure to make your gift stand out.

Not a fan of waste? Wrap one gift in another for instant eco-karma. A dishtowel and a little ribbon make for a pretty, petal-like packaging for the wine you’re gifting. Or keep the bottle cozy by wrapping it in a cute pair of knee socks.

One man’s trash… (as they say) Use the sleeve of an old, ill fitting or snagged sweater to reduce waste and increase the seasonal cuteness of your gift.

Felt is used in countless crafts. Wrapping gifts in the soft fabric seems so perfect. This project is as easy as pie and takes a lot less time to make.

However you choose to wrap the wine you are gifting this year, remember to drink local (and gift local!). Not sure which wine to buy? Check out these award-winning Missouri wines for a great place to start.

Missouri wine pairs well with gifting!
