Gift Ideas for Those Who Enjoy a Good Drink

Finding the right gift for someone who enjoys a good drink is as simple as tapping into their favorite interest. You could always show up with a bottle of wine, but even that can turn into a challenge if you are unfamiliar with the best way to pick the right one. You might also be unsure of what to give someone who enjoys mixed drinks or a fine whiskey. These gift ideas are all carefully selected to make anyone who enjoys alcoholic beverages smile.

Inspire a Romantic Picnic With a Wine Tote Bag

There’s something special about enjoying a glass of wine while sitting outdoors watching the sunrise at a local campsite. Or, your friend might be more of the type to plan a picnic at the park on a lovely day to enjoy with their partner. Either way, trying to lug around a bottle of wine and glasses is a bit of a challenge. A wine tote bag keeps everything safe, and the insulation will maintain the wine’s perfect temperature until it is time to open the bottle.

Surprise Them With a Cocktail Subscription

Subscription gifts are the type that truly keeps on giving. After your loved one’s special day is over, they’ll still enjoy receiving your gift for months down the road. Arranging for your loved one to enjoy a premade mojito delivered to their door will brighten their day and help them to fully relax and unwind. They’ll also love looking forward to seeing which type of expertly prepared drink will arrive at their door next.

Set Them Up With a Giant Beer Stein

A one-liter beer stein is a fun gift you can offer to someone who enjoys brewing their own or sampling flavors from their local brewery. You can give them beer stein alone as a great gift, or you can turn it into an extra special one by filling up the inside with cash, a can of craft beer, or other special surprises.

Give Them a Fun Drinking Game Set

From beer pong to poker, there’s a type of game for just about any personality. Think about the games that your friend might like to play as they drink. Then, look for a set that is classy enough to pull out at their next party. They’ll love having a fun way to keep everyone entertained as they dazzle them with their latest concoctions.

Keep Their Drinks Cold With Chilling Coasters

No one likes a warm drink that is supposed to be cold. Whether your friend likes whiskey or wine, there’s nothing that ruins a drink like letting it sit out too long. Chilling coasters make it possible for your friend to drink at a leisurely pace. They’ll love having a fantastic place to sit their glass until they are ready to take another sip.

Wrap Up a Few Chillers

Some people prefer their drinks on the rocks, while others prefer them straight up. Those who don’t like ice will also prefer their drink not to get watered down. Non-melting ice chillers are an excellent way for your friend to keep their drinks cold without diluting the taste. They can also reuse these repeatedly by simply washing them and putting them in the freezer.

Pamper Them With a Beautiful Cocktail Set

Anyone who loves a good drink will enjoy making a few signature cocktails for their family and friends. Help them turn their drinking into a fine art with a better cocktail set than the one they may already have. You can find high-end cocktail sets that include a shaker, Hawthorne strainer, and jigger, along with accessories such as a muddler that you can be sure that enjoy showing off as much as they like using them.

Giving someone a cup of cheer lets them know that you care and pay attention to the things they enjoy. After you’ve gifted your friend, make sure to keep these ideas handy so that you can add to their collection as you celebrate new events throughout the year together. Then, remember to carve out some time to enjoy a drink with your loved one. After all, it is those special moments that you spend together that they’ll never forget.
