If you are searching for a stylish gift for the wine enthusiast in your life, wine charms might be just the thing. Wine charms are perfect for holiday gatherings as they help everyone keep track of their wineglasses. The charms can also add a dash of color or glitz to the table and so add to the festive decor.
Wine charms are beads or markers that are attached to a ring that hooks around the stem of your wineglass. Let's face it...it can be very difficult to figure out which glass is which if everyone is drinking the same wine! With a wine charm dangling from the stem, it's very easy to identify your glass.
The charms are usually found in sets which are all variations of a theme. Charms have grown with popularity over the past few years and are widely available. They can be made of almost any material from simple beads to opulent gemstones. Your choices are only limited by your imagination and your budget.
Unique wine charm sets can be an excellent choice for a personal touch when choosing a wine gift for that special person in your life. They are available in a seashore theme set for the avid beachcomber, golf theme sets for the golfers, flower charms for the gardener...the list goes on an on. You can even find a set that is themed for Monopoly players. How fun to have your favorite playing piece as your wine identification!
Wine charms can be found in almost every theme by searching online. You will also often find sets in the housewares aisle of your favorite department stores, jewelry stores and sometimes even your local party stores. If you want something really special, you can find charms made of sterling silver or gold at a reasonable price.
For a unique wine gift, you can even make wine charms yourself. This is a fairly simple project even if you are not usually into crafting. All you will need to create your own special set is some hoop earring wires, 18 gauge wire and some jewelry pliers.
The hardest part of creating your own wine charms is choosing what to put on them. Any good craft store will have a huge selection of things you can use. There is an endless variety of beads in wood, glass and metal. There are also alphabet beads and shaped beads. Whether you use a single bead or several together, you will find something appropriate for anyone's tastes.
To create the actual wine charm, you will use the pliers to bend the ends of the earring hoops so that there is a loop at one end. Figure out which beads you want to use for your charm and slip them onto the wire. When you have them all on the wire, you just need to use the pliers to form a small hook at the other end of the earring hoop. To use these charms, you just put the hoop around the stem of the wineglass and put the hook into the loop.
Whether you create a unique wine charm set or buy them, wine charms are a wonderful gift idea for anyone on your list. You can give a complete set by itself or add them to a gift basket. Whichever you choose, wine charms are a thoughtful wine gift for any occasion.
