DIY Gift Idea: Sangria for Friends

Ok, so I LOVE a good gift idea, especially when it involves a drink dispenser.  I’ve been known to create a housewarming gift with a drink dispenser, or fill it with my favorite punch recipe!  Needless to say, I own about 10 drink dispensers, and I’ve become,

the girl to call when you need one.

…or so I hear from my family and friends.

So when I’m looking to create a gift for my friends, or even a sister, a housewarming, or a “just because,” reason, I typically try to think of a way to gift a drink dispenser and fill it with something super fun! Like… sangria ingredients!

Now, I call it “Sangria for friends,” because not only is it a great gift idea for friends… but also a gift that can be turned in to a whole batch to serve to friends! See what I did there? 😉

Tutorial:

Simply buy a drink dispenser (my favorites right now are HERE), and fill it with a bottle of wine (red or white) and different varieties of fruit.  Grab a wooden spoon and tie it on with pretty ribbon, and you’re set. A lot of sangria recipes include a juice or a soda, and World Market also has the cutest mixers you can add to this gift too! See them here: Juices/Sodas

You all, I’m all about things being simple and easy.  This gift idea falls directly in to both of those categories and man alive, what a “WOW,” factor it has when you hand it over to someone.  Let’s just play out the story in our heads, shall we?

Ah! A drink dispenser! Wait… Wine?! Sangria ingredients?! We can make this right now! We can serve it right now! I can use the drink dispenser later too!

Right?! You can even get super creative and create your own gift tag on PicMonkey to attach to the ribbon and wooden spoon, for an even bigger touch. Maybe come up with something clever using the word sangria in place of a common every day word. OR… provide them with a sangria recipe right on the tag, that matches the ingredients that you put in the drink dispenser.  Omg, now THAT would be cute!!

      Thank you so much!!

  1. Andrea says:

    Love this idea and have a few “housewarming” parties to attend in the near future. Can you please tell me what you included in your sangria gift in this photo? I’d like to replicate it!

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Andrea! Thank you!! Of course. We did a bottle of wine, oranges, cranberries, limes, lemons, grapefruit, and apples. You could also add in a “mixer,” if you want depending on the sangria recipe that your recipient would probably want to make! I just like giving the wine and “extras,” so they can make whichever kind they like! 🙂

  2. Tiffany says:

    Hi Jessica! Cute idea! Is it a 1 gal dispenser shown in the pic?

    1. Jessica says:

      Thank you Tiffany! It’s a 2 gallon drink dispenser that you can get at Walmart here: http://rstyle.me/n/cn8fsmbne5f (affiliate)

    Silly guestion is the fruit fresh or artificial . Making for a raffle gift

    1. Jessica says:

      I use real fruit, so they can use it to make the sangria! I hope that helps!

  4. Twila says:

    How long will the fruit keep I have family in NY and I live in TX so I would have to ship it

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Twila! Thanks so much for coming by!
      I’m not sure how long it would keep. I’m sure there are a lot of factors to it. (Heat, stage of ripeness the fruit is in, etc.) Sorry I can’t help more with that part!

  5. Jessica says:

    Do you have a certain recipe that you like to give with this gift using the fruits and wine you included?
    Thanks! Cute idea…

  6. Stephanie says:

    You have incredible ideas! I work for a homebuilder and we give a housewarming gift to all new homeowners. This time I did your sangria jug, it was a huge hit and turned out great. Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. Jessica says:

      Ahhh!!! Yay!! I’m so glad you loved this idea, and you found it helpful! I’m also glad it was a hit! 🙂 Thank you so much for taking the time to come here and leave a comment to let me know. It means a lot! XO

  7. Rachael says:

    I love this idea!! Going to do it as a Christmas gift and a thank you gift this holiday season!! After looking at a couple different sangria recipes it looks like some call for sprite or juice. Do you only include the wine and fruit in your gift and let them handle the rest?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Rachael! Thank you SO much! I’m so glad that you like this idea. Yep, I let them choose the “mixer” for it! Unless you want to create a recipe card to attach to it, and provide everything! But I also didn’t like most of the packing for a Sprite or a juice, so it would take away from “look,” of the gift. But World Market has ADORABLE juice/soda bottles that would look great in this gift I bet! You can see what they have here: http://rstyle.me/n/cuetrgbne5f (affiliate link) As a matter of fact, I think I’ll add this tidbit to the post for a suggestion! 🙂 Thank you for dropping a note!

  8. Rachael says:

    Jessica-
    Awesome idea!! I made this and took it as a host gift. Has anyone informed you that 1 bottle of wine doesn’t make very much sangria. 😉 We made it for Thanksgiving where I brought it and was shocked at the amount of sangria it made. Any suggestions? Maybe a smaller container? Thank you!

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Rachael! Thank you so much for mentioning that a lot of sangria recipes don’t make very much to fit in the dispenser! I just wanted to make sure the dispenser was big enough for the wine bottle to fit in and big enough that they could use it for future parties. I just kind of looked at is as a starter kit, and didn’t really think about it filling it all of the way up with only what I give them! Thank you for the heads up!
      I almost wonder if more than one bottle of wine would fit in it??? Or by also adding mixer/juice in with it too may help some! Thank you for the comment! I’ll have to think on this one! 🙂
