It seems like wine is a part of almost any celebration these days. Whether you are going to a New Year’s Eve party, Thanksgiving or Christmas, there is always someone showing up with a great bottle of wine either as a gift for the host of the party or as something to share with other guests. It has even become part of many religious celebrations and even birthdays. Because the number of people who are carrying bottles of wine with them has increased, the business around wine gift bags has also increased. Following in the footsteps of to go bags, you can now get bags in many different colors and textures.
One thing you need to consider when buying bags for your wine is that temperature can be an issue. The temperature of the wine is very important when you are ready to drink it, so it is the bag that you get to carry your bottle of wine has to be able to keep it at a stable temperature. Most bags are built for this. All you have to do is fill the bag with cold water, or ice cubes and the bottle will be perfectly chilled whenever, and wherever you are ready to drink it. Since the ice travels with the wine, you would not have to worry about finding a cumbersome ice bucket to use when you are ready to chill your bottle. You also would not have to wait an hour for it to get to the right temperature either because it will already be there.
One of the great things about transporting your bottles in printed wine bags instead of on its own is that it is protected. In the off chance that you accidentally bang the bottle against the car door or it is the corner of the counter, it is much less likely to break or chip if it is in a protected tote bag. Many bags also come with handles on the bags that make it a lot more convenient and easy to carry. You will be a lot less likely to drop the bottle if you are carrying it by the handle instead of just holding on to the neck of the bottle. Using these bags is good for the environment too because they can be rinsed out and reused many times.
One of the more popular uses for wine bags these days is as gifts. If you know someone who is a wine lover, they can always use an extra wine bag because they are likely carrying bottles with them frequently.
If you are going to give a wine bag as a gift, you now have many more options available to you than you probably know about. The texture of the bag can be just about anything. If it is not something that is water proof, the inside of the bag is lined to that the ice and water does not seem through. There are even a lot of novelty bags that you can get if the person you are buying for has unique tastes.
