My friend Jeff Wagg has come up for the perfect gift, for almost any occasion.
He’s come up with the definitive “message in a bottle”. This one isn’t based on “looking good” or “being cute”, it’s based on study and science. This is a good bottle to use, the bead catches the eye, the paper is waterproof, the pencil means your message will remain legible. Best part, Jeff will track your bottle online. You can not only follow the adventures and history of your bottle, you can be part of a whole community of romantic at heart bottle tossers!
I can’t wait for the next wedding invitation. Sure, I’ll buy a wedding gift but this will be the HONEYMOON GIFT! What could be nicer than ending your honeymoon with the fun of tossing a bottle to the world, and seeing what happens? Or how about the perfect ending to a family vacation? Everyone is always a bit glum the last day, but not if you have a tradition of throwing out a bottle to commemorate. When you hear back, and hopefully you do, it will remind you about your vacation all over again.
Why toss in the ocean? I plan to toss one in the Connecticut River. Others have suggested leaving it on a train or bus. The online tracking means you get to share with others.
I plan to get these for my daughter and son in law, they live in Africa and travel all around the world for work. But it isn’t just exotic locals that deserve a bottle. I also would love this for a birthday party. Everyone can toss a bottle and let’s all follow what happens next.
Jeff has it so you can do this for free, but I think the bottle and special paper and such is being offered at a terrific price. Plus, it’s just plain old fun. Free or with the bottle kit, this is a project worth participating in.
