Food and Wine
As the amazing aroma of mulled wine starts to fill the kitchen, you pause for a minute to consider what you should get your friend for her upcoming birthday. The now-rich aroma of the sweet and spicy mulled wine gives you an idea: a gift basket with an array of different wine-themed gifts in it. She would absolutely love that. You could include some spice packets and write out some directions so she could make her own mulled wine, and maybe a wine essence set. And what kind of wine basket would be complete without the wine itself? Her favorite is fruity but dry Pinot Grigio, has been for a while. You could include some of that. Come to think of it, it would be perfect to include all of the ingredients she would need to make the mulled wine, minus the water, of course. To complete the basket, you could throw in some spice mulling tea bags and top it off with a bow. Your gift will surely be a smash hit.
