Thinking Outside the Registry: A Gift for Wine Lovers

The stars must have aligned in the past few months because I suddenly have a very long roster of engaged friends. Engagements and bridal showers and weddings are seriously some of my favorite occasions to celebrate. There's something really special about being a part of that big moment in a good friend's life.

One thing that I find particularly difficult about wedding season though, is gift giving. I have never been a huge fan of giving cash or gift cards as wedding gifts. Don't get me wrong-- as a bride, I loved receiving money, but as a gift giver it doesn't feel super personal. And then there's always the registry, but sometimes the fun of buying a gift is lost when you're giving someone a gift that they already picked out.

So, where does that leave you? Selecting a blender or throw pillow that you think the couple might want/need? Yikes! Don't do it.

If you're serious about going rogue with wedding gift giving, I have a great suggestion for you: a Wine of the Month Club membership! Genius, right? I love this unique gift idea. It's fun, it's something that any wine lover will use, and it won't take up valuable counter space or be re-gifted. It's also a gift that they'll always remember receiving and enjoying.

As a newlywed, I would have loved coming home to find that a new wine had arrived on my doorstep each month. What a perfect way for Alex and me to test drive those registry wine glasses! And there is nothing better than kicking back with a glass of wine and a movie, enjoying a low key date night at home without wedding plans to worry about. And let's be real-- married 3 years Anne wouldn't mind a Wine of the Month Club membership either!

This unique gift is a great option for any wine lover, but it can certainly be on the pricey side. Well, I have a great option for you: Groupon Coupons.
