Would this be a bad gift?

Our friends are having a pool party this weekend and I asked DH if he would like to bring the second bottle of wine we purchased and discovered wasn't something we enjoyed... would it be rude to take it as our gift to the hostess?

  • Different strokes for different folks, but I wouldn't flat out refuse to drink it. I would casually say no thank you, I don't think I'm going to drink anything right now...maybe later.

  • A bottle of wine is always a great gift to give to a hostess!

  • Not really because it will probably be drunk at the pool party anyway.

  • Would it be rude if we brought it and then refused to drink it should they open it?

  • Just because you didn't like it, doesn't mean the people hosting the party wouldn't either. I would take it as the gift.

  • Heck no! Just cuz you guys didn't like it doesn't mean they won't ;) and if not they won't know you thought it was gross, so it'd be a good gift I think!

  • They might like it, you never know. I am very picky when it comes to wine, so wine I don't like other people might like.

  • No it would not be rude to not drink it!! I personally hate alcohol but have no problems gifting it.
