wine bottleLet me just be straight with you, I love a good bottle of wine. Who doesn't? Even if you're not inclined to imbibe, a wine bottle makes for pretty much the easiest hostess gift ever. And if you are fond of the vino? All the better.

Bonus? They make for pretty awesome party tricks even when you do have a corkscrew handy!
