Next time you plan to give a bottle of wine as a birthday gift, dress it up with these free printable birthday wine bottle labels. It’s an easy way to give a bottle of wine a custom look in just minutes. Print the labels at home for a last-minute gift.
Birth Month Flower Wine Pairings
If you need gift inspiration for the special birthday person in your life, FTD prepared a series of wine pairings that pair nicely with each month’s birth flower. To match the wine pairings, FTD also created a series of coordinating birthday wine labels, which you can download for free and attach to a wine bottle for a cute birthday gift.
Do you know what your birth month flower is? I didn’t. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of my birthday flower, which is an Aster. I had to Google to see what the flower looks like. (It’s lovely by the way.)

Free Printable Birthday Wine Bottle Labels
Although there are 12 labels, each featuring a different birthday month flower, you can also just pick your favorite label to attach to the bottle. My favorite is Bubbles and Birthday Wishes – probably because I am partial to bubbly wines.
How To Use Printable Wine Bottle Labels
There are two ways to use these printable wine bottle labels. You can either attach it on top of the original label or remove the vineyard’s label and replace it with the birthday wine label. There are benefits to both options. Obviously, replacing the label makes it look even more custom, but leaving the original label allows the birthday recipient to remove the birthday wine label so they can see information from the vineyard. Also, attaching the birthday wine label over the original is a quick process if you are pressed for time.
For those who want to remove the original label and replace it with a birthday wine label, here are the best steps to remove the original label.
- Soak the lower half of the wine bottle in a bowl of room temperature water to remove the original label. Add in 5-10 tablespoons of baking soda in the water to speed up the process.
- After soaking the label for 30 minutes, remove the bottle from the water and use a dry towel to wipe off the label.
For particularly stubborn labels, I’ve found a Magic Eraser does a great job helping to remove sticky label residue.
Regardless of which method you use, my favorite adhesive is this double-sided craft tape. I use it for all of my projects. It holds. Because no one wants the cute new label popping off right after you put it on!
Download Free Printable Birthday Wine Bottle Labels
When printing the birthday wine label, you can print it at home or take it somewhere to have it printed. Having it printed on a professional laser printer will give you the best-looking quality label. I use my inkjet at home for quick projects, but if I was giving it as a gift I would have it printed at FedEx or Staples. You can choose matt or glossy paper, whichever you prefer.
