A few years back my neighbor was at and Arts and Crafts show and spotted a unique gift for wine lovers. She purchased a variety of four wine coasters and delivered one to each of us Girls that play once a month at GNI (girls night in). We each got a different design and it was one of the coolest gifts I have ever received. In attempting to share it with you, I realized that my coveted coaster is missing (probably a nice cozy bed for an action figure somewhere in the house) but with the power of google, I found a website for you to get your own (because I know you'll want to).
The days of wine charms are gone, (although I have a ton of those too) as these gifts, if purchased in a variety of patterns, can be used to distinguish who's glass is who's as well as serve as a coaster that your glass will not fall off of... What?... Am I the only one that has happened to? Anyway, if you go to diningintheround.com, you can find beautiful linens for your table, as well as these. They get the "plug" since I'm using their photos in place of my own absent coaster.
How's that for a coaster? These would be perfect for the wine lover in your life for any special occasion...or just because.
