Need a Gift For a Party?

Top Alcohol Gifts To Consider

When you have a family party coming up, or even a night at a friend’s house for a dinner party, it is a custom to take a bottle (or a crate depending on the occasion) of alcohol along.

Alcohol is a popular gift option for those who enjoy indulging in drinks on special occasions or just for the fun of it. Indeed, if you know someone who is in it to collecting wine, that can make a great gift!

Alcohol can range from inexpensive to very expensive and can be customized based on the recipient’s preferences. 

However, if your friend or family member is more mid-range with their drinking or alcohol collecting, you may find yourself a bit stuck on what to give them as a gift. 

So, here are five interesting alcohol-based gift ideas.

Personalized Alcohol

What better way to say ‘I’m thinking of you’ than to gift your friend or family member a bottle or can of beer with their name on it?

Indeed, it is now possible to have photos placed onto alcohol labels or to even have special dates embossed onto a bottle. 

So, if you have a friend who likes gifts that you can’t get anywhere else, look online to discover unique personalized alcohol gifts.

Craft Beer Gift Basket

Craft beer is all the rage in 2023, and many breweries offer a wide selection of unique and flavorful options. A craft beer gift basket is a perfect gift for the beer-loving friend in your life. You can assemble a basket with various craft beers and snacks like pretzels, peanuts, or popcorn and even add a personalized pint glass to complete the gift. 

Wine and Cheese Board 

A wine and cheese board can be an elegant and thoughtful gift for a more sophisticated friend or a friend who likes to throw dinner parties. Select a bottle of wine that complements the cheese, like a bold red with a sharp cheddar, and then assemble a cheese board with a variety of cheeses, crackers, fruits, and nuts. You can also add a cheese knife set or wine bottle opener to complete the gift.

Cocktail Kit 

A cocktail kit is a perfect gift for a friend who enjoys mixing drinks at home. You can either purchase a pre-made cocktail kit or assemble one yourself with a shaker, strainer, jigger, and a selection of cocktail recipes in the form of a book. Add in a bottle of the recipient’s favorite liquor or a unique cocktail mixer to complete the gift.

If you are going large, why not invest in alcohol too? That way, you can help your friend learn the skills associated with making cocktails from scratch.

Whiskey Stones 

Whiskey stones are a great gift for the whiskey drinker in your life. These stones are designed to keep drinks cold without diluting them, so you can enjoy the full flavor of your drink without sacrificing temperature. Whiskey stones come in a variety of shapes, so you can choose the option and size that best suits the recipient’s taste.
