I love getting gifts, and this post is just in time for my birthday, at the end of this month. (Just Saying) As a whiskey lover, I think these are fantastic ideas for the amber liquid connoisseur in your life. So enjoy another fabulous guest post from Sara O Brown.
It often seems like buying for the liquor lover is pretty easy since you can grab a bottle on the go. However, when it comes to dealing with the kind of person that loves a good bottle of whiskey, there are only so many varieties of the stuff that you can invest in before the options start to break the bank.
For those who enjoy an evening of slow whiskey drinking or merely like to indulge in an exceptional single malt whiskey every once in a while, there can be more to great gift giving than buying a bottle.
Whether it’s a unique decanter that you can really showcase your whiskey collection with or a fun book that makes a nod to a favorite pastime, there are some affordable options out there that will be sure to impress the whiskey lover in your life!
Scratch and Sniff Whiskey
There are a variety of books out there that you can pass off to someone you know who loves whiskey that will give the inside scoop on their favorite drink. But, not everything to do with the stiff drink has to be serious!
Fortunately, for those who can appreciate the fun side of the potent drink, there’s nothing better than a scratch-and-sniff book that will teach the reader a little about the bottled beverage.
While it won’t be the end-all-be-all of learning about whiskey, it can be a fun way to impress the person in your life who loves to sit down for a sip of the stuff.
A Little Candy
Whiskey and candy might seem like two very different things, but when you happen to be jonesing for a little bit of the drink without wanting to indulge, a gummy bear that tastes like single malt whiskey can be a great option.
Whether you decide to buy these unique candies by the crate or just test them out for a special occasion, they’re sure to be a surprising choice for the whiskey lover in your life.
The only problem is that they may just lead to another flavor obsession that’s whiskey related!
Spherical Ice Cube Molds
Drinking whiskey is certainly about the caliber of the liquid you’re consuming. But, in tandem with buying a good bottle, it’s also important to have it in the right glass.
With this wonderful, spherical gift you can take the concept of the perfect drink one step further! Instead of reaching for the square ice cubes, try these classy, circular molds that will be sure to make your evening cocktail an even more elegant affair.
In addition, since these cubes are less likely to break, they’ll dilute your drink less than the standard cube for an improved sipping experience.
Often in life, whether it happens to be a busy work day or a stressful family event, you want to reach for a drink even though it’s nowhere close to an acceptable hour.
But, for those moments when one really wants to indulge in their whiskey-love without the alcohol included, there are whiskey-flavored toothpicks!
Not only do these fun flavored gifts have a function, but they can also be a truly original gift that takes your friend or family members by surprise.
It might seem like a strange idea, but this is the kind of gift someone might not think of buying for themselves.
The Perfect Decanter
Even the most refined of whiskey lovers often keep their favorite drink in the bottle to pour at will. Luckily, that’s why a stylish gift like a whiskey decanter can be the perfect thing to invest in – and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.
While many decanters can put you back quite a pretty penny, some are cost-effective and can still look like an expensive offering.
Moreover, they’re also perfect for filling with your Tullamore Dew whiskey and placing on the kitchen counter for a great aesthetic addition!
A Piece of Art
Whiskey on the wall might seem like a bridge too far, but for those who really count it as their favorite drink, this can be the perfect gift.
Instead of troubling to find a different bottle your friend hasn’t drunk or the perfect print for the wall, stick the two together for alcoholic art that can serve as a conversation piece. Whether you pick out a slightly serious print or go for something that appeals to their sense of fun, this is likely an item they won’t come up with themselves!
For those who love the sophisticated drink, there’s plenty of whiskeys out there to try. But, when it comes to economic gift options, there’s no shortage of interesting and unique items that will take the drink-lover in your life by surprise.
From ice cube molds to themed wall art, there’s a lot gift giving fun to be had with this liquid obsession.
