Have you ever been invited to a housewarming party and had no idea what to give as a gift? I sure have. I never really know what to give new homeowners because tastes and preferences vary so widely from person to person. While I may adore red accents and other jewel tones, the hostess may be a white doily kinda gal. That would be a major faux pas, and wouldn't be overly useful to the recipient. Plus, no one wants to end up drowning in Tupperware or being the proud owner if 17 can openers.
I prefer to give (or receive) gifts what are a bit more unique than what you'd typically find at your local housewares store. I like gifts to show effort and affection, and to also be memorable. That's why I was so excited to learn about Etching Expressions. This great company specializes in etched glass wine bottles.

The awesome folks at Etching Expressions sent me a bottle of their Private Label California Champagne. I chose one of the humor-themed bottles, Till Death Do Us Part. I loved the somewhat edgy design, and I also liked that I could customize it with our names and wedding anniversary.
My champagne arrived quickly and incredibly well packaged. Once I unpacked it, I was immediately amazed by the quality of the etching on the bottle. On many etched glass items, the etching is very shallow and not too pronounced. On my Etching Expressions wine bottle, the etching was deeper and far more detailed. I loved the fact that I could choose colored etching as well.
Take a look!
Here's a closer shot of the etching. Notice the great attention to detail and depth of the design. This is so intricately and carefully created that it's a work of art. I am saving this bottle for a special occasion. I just can't bear to open it yet. Even after the bubbly is long gone, I think I will repurpose the bottle and use it as a bud vase.
Overall, I am very impressed by the etched wine bottles from Etching Expressions. They're incredibly high quality, beautiful, and are very unique and memorable gifts for any occasion. I wish they had specific housewarming gift designs, as these would be a wonderful gift for new homeowners like myself. I think I will purchase another bottle for my parents for Christmas this year. They love their wine, so this would be sure to please them.
