When a greetings card becomes a gift idea

Looking for a special greetings card?

You’re in the right place.

Over the last few years, online card retailers have boomed in popularity. People are happy to pay a little extra for the convenience of shopping online and the privilege of adding a personalised element to their product. But at the end of the day, you’re still just getting a standard card.

Here at Message and a Bottle, we go one step further.

We sell unique cards with a twist. Not only can they be personalised and edited with a message of your choice, they also come with a little boozy bonus. A 30ml measure of a tasty spirit can be found tucked inside each design, along with a tasting card that provides fun information about the drink.

In many ways, our greeting cards are more like a gift idea. They’re a small but thoughtful present. One that won’t break the bank, as they cost only slightly more than an average greetings card. And they’re guaranteed to go down a treat with a loved one who enjoys a little tipple.

3 steps to create your special greetings card cum gift idea

Interested? Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Choose your card

Our online collection of unique cards covers all the bases. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, new baby. Cards to say congratulations, thank you, thinking of you. We pretty much have it all.

Simply choose your occasion from the menu and take a look at the options available. You’ll find a selection of A6 designs within each – some suitable for men, some for women. These are continually updated and each one has been designed especially for us. Which means, you won’t find the same greetings card anywhere else and, if you wish, you can shop with us time and time again.

Step 2: Personalise

Most of our card designs allow you to add a personalised element to the front cover, such as the recipient’s name, age, or anniversary year or number. Just like a typical greetings card, you can also include a personal gift message – which will be printed on the inside cover.

You have 100 characters to play with. So, there’s plenty of space to write a heartfelt message. But if you prefer, you can simply leave this section blank and handwrite the card when it arrives.

Step 3: Select a spirit

Range of spirits available with unique card
The last step is what makes our special greetings cards so… special. It’s time to select a tasty tipple for your loved one to enjoy. We have a comprehensive range of spirits to choose from, including:

All of these are sourced from the finest independent distillers from around the world and many of them are award-winners. There’s bound to be one with your recipient’s name on it. So, be sure to take a good look through the varieties available and select one that will put a smile on their face.
