‘Tis the season for the gift of giving. We don’t know about you, but for us here at Theme Night Wines, coming up with the perfect holiday gift basket idea is a piece of cake (or, in this matter, a bottle of wine!)

A DIY wine basket is a great way to show friends, family, and even business partners that you value them. Whether you need a holiday, party, thank you, or housewarming gift ideas, we’ve got just the wines for making wine baskets that will be sure to show your recipients that you appreciate them.


There are so many ways to make holiday gift baskets, which can make it a little hard to know just where to begin. Here’s the how-to on making holiday gift baskets that will delight gift recipients.


One of the easiest ways to start making holiday gift baskets is by taking into account your recipient’s interests. Family, friends, teachers, hairdressers, dog walkers, and nurses are just a few examples of the different kinds of people to tailor a DIY Wine Basket towards.

What are their interests and hobbies? What do they do for a living? These are great icebreaker questions for discovering the theme for the DIY wine basket.


Once you’ve come up with a few of your recipient’s interests, it’s time to choose a theme for your DIY wine basket. There are countless themes you can choose for your gift basket. We’ve narrowed down a few of the most popular themes for wine baskets to help you craft the perfect DIY wine basket:

Theme Night Wines | Movie Night Gift Basket | Chardonnay

Do you have a game lover who also happens to love wine? Whether they like retro board games or the latest Xbox or PC game, making a DIY game lover basket is a creative way to show that you know their interests like no other. Just grab a good-sized basket, add in a few retro board games or the latest computer game, and of course, a bottle (or two!) of our Game Night Merlot.

Theme Night Wines | Movie Night Gift Basket | Chardonnay


For movie lovers out there, consider making a Movie Night Gift Basket that’s full of your recipient’s favorite movies, snacks, and a bottle of our Movie Night Wine. This chardonnay pairs well with buttery, salty, and even caramel-rich or chocolate-laden popcorn, so be sure to add a box of each into your gift basket.

Theme Night Wines | Pizza Night Gift Basket | Pinot Grigio | Red Blend


When in doubt about what gift basket to make, you can always choose gift baskets for pizza lovers! Who doesn’t love pizza, after all? To make an amazing pizza gift basket, add in quirky items like pizza spices, a cutting board, some cheese, an apron, and a delicious bottle or two of Pizza Night Wine to complete your wine basket. Our Pizza Night Wine comes in both a red blend and a Pinot Grigio, making your basket look extra stylish with a garnet-hued bottle and a light, straw-colored bottle for contrast.

Theme Night Wines | Housewarming Gift Basket


For housewarming gift ideas, you can easily mix and match any of our themed wines. The possibilities are endless when it comes to combining different wines to help new neighbors feel welcome to the area. Housewarming gift ideas aren’t the only types of events that can call for a bundle of our different wines. Help new colleagues, caregivers, or service providers warm up to the job with a simple wine basket filled with our most thematic wines! Our Winter Night, Movie Night, and Game Night wines are a great way to make someone feel at home, both in their new homes or on the job!

Theme Night Wines | Holiday Gift Basket | Framily Night | Winter Night


Friends are important, so why not surprise your friends at your next get-together with the gift that keeps on giving: wine! If you’re having friends over for a “framily” gathering, add a fun centerpiece to your table with our Framily Night Wine, a deck of Cards Against Humanity, and party snacks for a night you’ll all be sure to remember (so long as you don’t over-indulge in our wine!)

Theme Night Wines | Ladies Night Wine Basket


Everyone deserves to escape from the daily demands of life every so often. Invite the ladies over for a relaxing spa day with a surprise gift basket to slow down and enjoy yourself and your good company. By making a basket with spa supplies, face masks, nail polish, cucumbers, and a bottle of Ladies Night Wine, you can make your next ladies’ night feel like a day at the spa! Our Ladies Night wine is a flavorful trio of tasty wines: cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and rosé. These three wines have all of the ladies covered, ensuring that no one’s palette is in want of the perfect wine.

Theme Night Wines | Our Night Gift Basket | Our Night Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon


Last but not least, a romantic gift basket is a loving way to show your significant other that you’re thinking of them. This basket can be customized for your loved one in any way possible. You know their quirks, so throw in a few surprising trinkets, some of their favorite sweets, and of course, a bottle of Our Night Wine.

This cabernet sauvignon won’t disappoint, with a beautiful, deep red that will glisten tantalizingly in your strategically-planned, romantic basket. Not only does it look gorgeous, but Our Night is the best wine for a romantic meal, which will be sure to make your date night unforgettable.


The last (and totally optional) step is to personalize your basket with a charming holiday letter. For acquaintances and people with whom you have a more formal relationship, a short and sweet note should do the trick, but for those you know and love deeply, writing a holiday letter after making holiday gift baskets for them adds that final, heart-warming touch that will be sure to show them how much you care.
