2. For the wine lover

A gift of wine is an excellent expression of how you feel. Now, at many wine online merchants, you can have wine bottles personalised to show how much you care. It doesn’t matter whether this is your friend’s first time experiencing the wonders of the fruit of the vine, or if he is a serious collector with a large wine cellar. Or, consider a personalised engraved bottle of champagne and toasting glasses.

Every time your friend opens a book, he or she will remember you with a smile.
