19 Best Wine Gift Boxes, Kits & Packages For Delivery In 2021

By August 24, 2021 No Comments

wine-gift-box

You might think it’s impossible to put joy in a box and ship it across the country for the delight and enjoyment of others, but (and we hate to break it to you) you’d be wrong on this one. Why? Because of a little something called a wine gift box.

A wine gift box or basket is a ready-to-ship bundle packed with wine and/or wine accessories. (They’re basically the long-distance equivalent of taking your friends and loved ones out to the local wine bar.) Wine care packages make perfect birthday gifts, gifts for employees, or even corporate gifts everyone will appreciate far more than a fruit basket.

When you send wine gift boxes or wine gift baskets, you’re sending more than just the wine itself; you’re providing an experience — the memories, the flavors, the buzz — of drinking that wine, and also the joy that comes along with doing so.

Pro-tip: No matter where you are in the world relative to your favorite fellow wine lovers, you can still gather everyone together to share a virtual wine tasting.

Conclusion

To summarize, when you send a wine gift box, you’re really sending joy in a package.

You’re also participating in a time-honored tradition of wine-sharing that goes all the way back to the days of wine’s youth. Archaeological evidence suggests that the brilliant idea of sharing wine across distance developed alongside wine itself.

The experts at Vinepair write:

“The jars encrusted with wine residue that were found in the tomb of King Scorpion I present early evidence of wine trading. The 300 or so jars in the tomb, which the king intended to take to the afterlife, were made out of clay from Palestine, which implies that the wine itself was imported from vineyards hundreds of miles away.”

They also discuss the nuanced design of the amphora, a ceramic container lined with wax that hints at the expertise and energy that went into shipping wine during the Bronze Age. The vessels, with their ship-ready size, convenient carrying handles, and slosh-resistant bottoms, allowed early wine enthusiasts to share their favorite beverages with people who lived (by the standards of the day) on the other side of the world.

And so it seems “sharing” and “wine” have been inseparable since the beginning and likely will be forever. Immerse yourself in this age-old tradition. Connect with coworkers, friends, and loved ones by following in the footsteps of our ancient ancestors and sending them some wine. (You don’t even need to fire your own liquid-tight clay pots and stack them on a ship. You can simply select one of the wine gift boxes featured in this article.)
