I’ve always loved to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays by popping the cork on something memorable. For anniversaries, there is something particularly important about the mutual acknowledgement of love, commitment and experience together.
Ogden Nash once said it humorously, “Marriage is the bond between a person who never remembers anniversaries and another who never forgets them.” My wife and I are lucky to have gotten married on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, so we never forget to toast the occasion. Twenty-two years and we haven’t forgotten yet!
With GiftTree, you can make it easy for every couple to remember their anniversary and all the special little relationship milestones that they share. We’ve recently launched two gifts that are perfect for wedding or anniversary gifts.
I love our new Milestone Anniversary Wine Trio as a creative option as a wedding gift. For year 1 (in our “Best” version), pop the cork on the iconic crisp apple acidity of Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne. The couple can celebrate Year 5 with a perfectly aged bottle of Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon. In Year 10, the enduring unctuous glory of Fonseca LBV Port will be ready for action when the time comes for their 10-year anniversary. Above all, this gift is all about the symbolism of a celebrating each day and looking forward to a joyful life together.
For other milestones, we have similar but more versatile gift that is designed to let the couple choose when and for what they’d like to celebrate; called the Evenings Together Wine Trio. The wine choices are the same as the Anniversary gift above. If you choose the “Better” version, the couple can celebrate with crisp notes of pear and walnut in a bottle of the Moet & Chandon Imperial. They can “relax” with a balanced and soft bottle of Stag’s Leap Karia Chardonnay. When it is time to reminisce, they can do it with the oak and black current flavors of Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon.
Send one of these wine trios to a happy couple today – the lucky recipients of this generous gift are sure to remember your generosity at least three times in the future!
