What over 21-year-old doesn’t love receiving the gift of alcohol?
Need an emergency gift for someone you don’t know very well? Bust out a bottle of wine. (Suuure you picked it out especially for them.) If your family gatherings include a lot of imbibing anyway, why not give alcohol as the gift? While you may want to give the gift of alcohol this year, sometimes it can be difficult to decide what to get. Here are some choice gifts for various members of your family.
Chances are, you grandfather is no longer chugging bottles of Poland Spring Vodka like it’s 1950. His taste has become refined with age, so your gift should reflect this. While a bottle of fine whiskey makes a great gift, you may find yourself shelling out a bit more than you planned when springing for the top stuff. Instead, buy him whiskey stones or a Whiskey Ball, made to chill whiskey without diluting it. And don’t forget, nothing pairs with a good dram like a quality cigar.
If your mom is like most moms, she loves wine. It’s tasty, healthy, and doesn’t look like a cry for help when she drinks a few glasses of it after a long day at the office. Improve access to her favorite drink by buying her an electronic corkscrew. All she needs to do is press a button and voilà!, her bottle is open. Or, if you’re feeling extra fancy, subscribe her to a wine of the month club.
Your father has probably already threatened to install a kegerator in the basement every year around this time anyway, so why not finally grant him his wish? The Draftmark Tap System is almost like a mix between a mini keg and a Keurig. This gift is a lot cheaper than a keg, and offers fresh draught beer that fits right in the fridge.
For Your Cousin:
Statistics show that at least one out of every family of cousins is a hipster. And what do hipsters love even more than buying vinyl from bands you’ve never heard of? Taking on complicated processes that most people simply pay others to do—like brewing beer. Buy your cousin a home brewing kit and you probably won’t see him or her again until next year.
For Your Niece or Nephew:
If you have a relative that’s in college, you’ll find that they are the easiest to shop for. A gift basket filled with nips is a great way to teach them about different types of liquor in one fell swoop. Drinking games are also a popular choice, since unlike you, they don’t have real reasons to drink yet.
