Christmas in July — Dressing up the bottle

Dressed to impress

Wine is an essential part of many holiday meals and parties. But presenting the hostess with a nice bottle of wine in a brown paper bag makes no sense. If someone goes to the trouble of picking out a special bottle of Chardonnay or Merlot, why not present the gift in an attractive style.


Chatterbox makes bottle gift-wrapping easy during the holidays with a variety of attractive wine bottle covers. Our favorite is an adorable Santa apron. The cute accessory adds sparkle to any dinner table décor and acts as a conversation starter for holiday parties.


If wine is not your beverage of choice, the apron also dresses up sparkling cider, dish soap, olive oil, hand lotions or whatever bottle you would like to display in a festive fashion.


It is the perfect gift for a hostess, teacher, neighbor or family member.


As an added bonus, the apron fits dolls 16 to 18 inches. All doll owners would love to get this apron for Christmas, birthday or maybe in their stocking. After your guests have gone home, your grandchild’s American Girl doll will look fantastic in this for the holidays.

Festively wrapped

Thinking about your Christmas table and gift-giving now might offer you more time to enjoy the holidays with friends and family in December. Extra bottle covers also are good to have in case someone you weren’t expecting (and didn’t buy for) stops by with a present or invites you to their home. Slip the cover over a bottle of wine and you have an instant gift.


ChatterboxBeach offers a variety of hand-knit and fabric bottle covers perfect for holiday gift-giving, décor and celebrations. We will be featuring Christmas in July products for the rest of the month. To see more holiday gifts available from ChatterboxBeach, visit
