Wine Bottle Gift Box, You Can Buy One, or You Can Make One

Wine Bottle Gift Box, You Can Buy One, or You Can Make One

When you give someone a gift, the wrapping is part of the gift just as much as the present inside it. Normally one should never judge a book by its cover but sometimes one should and this is one of those times. Wine does not start to taste better when the box it is presented in is nicer and more expensive, of course not, but it does give it that little bit extra.

You can buy a gift box for wine bottles in all sorts of places, ranging from a wine shop you normally visit or a vineyard store. There are multiple colors you can choose from and even when it comes to designs and materials you will not run out of options.

Design or make your own

Are you a creative person maybe? If you have experience with art work and know about designing then why not create your own wine bottle gift box? When the thought of putting a box together has you buying a designer one then buy one that is already made for you? A tip would be to go to your local wine store and buy a few of the wine boxes that are not decorated yet.

You have a wide choice of materials when it comes to gift boxes for one bottle. There are the ones made of wood but also plastic, fabric, cardboard and even metal. Some decorating tips would be to use a wooden one and paint it, maybe with some rustic scenes or a portrait. An other option could be to go 3 dimensional and glue things like flowers or other items on the box.

Even if your on a budget and you can only by a cardboard wine bottle gift box, you can still paint it to make it more personal and even glue things on it.

If your not only good with design but also with your hands then design the whole gift box from scratch, choose you own material and create something really personal around the bottle of wine you are giving as a present. There are metal containers for wine bottles that you could also use, or maybe create your own from sheet metal.

Maybe you have these wild ideas for a lovely gift wrapping but are not creative enough to make it happen on your own, then you could ask a friend who is a bit experienced to help you out by being the hands to your mind.

Wine should be enjoyed and indeed the wrapping will not make it taste better then it already is. But the joy of unwrapping it, knowing that the gift giver has gone to all that effort just to create something special will make drinking it very special. And just think about all the fun you will have beforehand when you are in the middle of creating the wine bottle gift box.

When you need some ideas or some tips do a search online to find some arts and crafts sites who can show you some new ways of creating the perfect wine bottle wrapping.

Different methods to package electronics items for shipment

Different methods to package electronics items for shipment

Product packaging and shipping is mostly carried by wholesale suppliers or manufacturers. When you are working as a middleman, sometime you might be required to package a product for shipping, for example when you are buying products from a wholesaler or dropshipper and selling them at your own website. Packaging can be difficult if you have no experience, especially packaging the breakable or electronic item. It should be done with great care because if the product gets damaged on its way to the customers, it’s you who’ll have to suffer the loss in most cases. Apart from the financial loss, it will cause annoyance for both you and your customer. Therefore you should make sure that the product reaches your customers without a scratch in one attempt.

Your first job is to choose the cushioning material for packaging especially if the product is easily breakable. There are various packaging materials available in the market to be used as a cushion by wholesale suppliers in packaging. Try using a proper cushioning material if the item is expensive, do not rely on paper because it might prevent the product from moving around, but it doesn’t provide enough protection. For this purpose, you should consider bubble wraps, which is inexpensive and very effective. Use more than one layer to be on the safer side and make sure that you are using cushion material not only on sides but on bottom and top as well. Remember that you must use some protective materials around the product even if the product hasn’t had the space to move in the carton. Use good quality boxes for packaging. The original box that comes with the product is usually not sufficient for packaging. In most cases, you will need to use two boxes with a layer of peanuts between the two (remember we are talking about “packaging peanuts” used by suppliers and not the dry fruit).

Before packaging an electronic product, make sure that it is properly switched off. Always enfold the wires according to their natural folds. Properly seal the box with good quality packaging tape, reason for emphasizing on packaging tape is to warn against using low quality tape that will begin to lose grip after some time. Mark the box as “breakable” or “fragile” according to the nature of packaged items. In addition to these guidelines, you can seek advice from wholesale suppliers or manufacturer for further instructions regarding packaging. Additionally, many shipping companies also provide packaging guidelines for suppliers.

How To Make a Homemade Barbecue Hamburger Recipe From Scratch In 5 Easy Steps

How To Make a Homemade Barbecue Hamburger Recipe From Scratch In 5 Easy Steps

The majority of things really worth doing require more than one step to accomplish. Great food requires careful planning, maybe several steps over a period of time and perseverance to don’t give up to see the project right through to the finish. All that is also true about anything like choosing to make awesome homemade burgers. Here’s tips on how to do just that in five simple steps.

Step 1. Choose the best ingredients you can afford, especially the ground beef (minced if you’re a Brit). Get the beef from a local farmers market if you can. This is really crucial since the meat will be best quality, which will show through in the end result. Also the cattle are likely to be organically reared by a local farmer who really cares about their welfare. If you do not really do this step, the results will be just as average as everyone elses.

Anyway, the ingredients you need are:

1 pound (450g) of leanest ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

A large hens egg

4 slices of bread (cut off the crust)

4 tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese

1 tsp each of salt and pepper

(This should make 4 decent sized hamburgers – double or triple the amounts according to numbers/appetite).

Step 2. Mix it all together in this way: blitz the onion and bread in a food processor (or chop very finely). Then put them in a suitable bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mush the whole lot up with your hands, until it’s evenly mixed and you can squash it out between your fingers.

Then break it into four roughly equal balls. Next comes shaping the patties. This can be a really important step that will need your full attention and concentration. You must do it this way: Here’s a cool trick if you want uniformly sized and shaped patties: I use a plastic jar lid, it’s about 4 inches across and 1 inch deep, and off a big peanut butter jar.

Gently push the required amount of hamburger into the lid, and use your thumb to press a hollow in the centre of the patty. The key reason why you’ll need this is so that the hamburger won’t bulge in the middle whilst cooking and will cook evenly

Step 3. There are two basic ways to cook a hamburger (beefburger if you’re a Brit) – one is to broil it (that is, grill it, if you’re a Brit), or to grill it over charcoal or gas (i.e. barbecue, if you’re…..nevermind).

Assuming you intend to barbecue, sorry grill it, either over charcoal or gas my tip would be to use a hinged gridiron. The reason for this is to that you can put all the patties in to grill – and when the time comes to turn them over, they can all be turned over in one go. Also, it’s good to use a hinged gridiron – read about these and other BBQ accessories here –  because they are less likely to break up during cooking, and come out looking perfect. This also has the effect of reducing the amount of fat that runs out onto the coals, thus reducing flames – flames aren’t a good thing in barbecuing.

Step 4. Watch how long they cook for – 5-7 minutes in total each side over a medium hot barbecue grill. To explain and elaborate on that a little, concentrate and don’t over cook them, and also don’t allow any flare ups to occur. If there are any flames due to juices dripping on to the coals have a spray bottle on hand to blast them with water.

Step 5. Serve however you like them. In a fresh burger bun is great – but no one says you have to do this. Here are a few extras to try serving with your excellent barbecue hamburgers.

slices of cheese, mature cheddar
sliced pickled gerkins
sliced pickled chillies
tomato chutney
chilli sauce.
In addition, gently toasting the burger buns is a nice touch.

At the conclusion, for those who have stuck with the above mentioned tips completely, you should have succeeded and after this can sit back and relish the rewards of that success. You can be a little bit pleased with yourself and self-satisfied! You set out to realize your main goal and you just succeeded! Now eat your awesome homemade barbecue hamburger recipe and enjoy!
