Gin gifts that are just the tonic for your Christmas-present dilemmas

Because gin is so much better than socks...

Do they love a G&T? Always up for a Singapore sling? Never one to turn down a Negroni? Then you’re in luck! The high street (and internet) just so happens to be teaming with gin-themed Christmas gift ideas – from bottles of liquid deliciousness to home accessories that reflect their love of the botanical spirit.

Cocktails, anyone? Why every home should have a bar

Where better place to start than with a bottle of the good stuff?

Gin-gifts-by-post-Not-Another-Bill

Surely, this the best post a girl could ever receive? A 70cl bottle of Sipsmith’s gin (AKA The Gin of Champions), two copper mugs, and a muddler to mix up your ‘Gin Gin Mules’. It all comes in a plywood crate, which you open using the attached 18t gold crowbar. Oh yes.

Gin-gifts-Peaky-Blinder-Spiced-Dry-Gin-Bottle-shot

New spirits by order of Peaky Blinders! Fans of Peaky Blinders’ Tommy Shelby and gang will love this spiced dry gin, inspired by the cocktail culture of the 1920s. Just like the hit gangster epic itself this gin is not for the faint hearted, with peppery notes of ginger and grains of paradise making this a bold and spicy gin choice.

Gin-gifts-Amara-decanter

Some gin bottles are so pretty, you’ll want them out on permanent display (see Liberty’s gin, a few products down). Others… not so much. Which is where this fun rocket decanter comes into its own. There are also versions for your other ‘rocket fuels’ – vodka and whiskey.

Gin-gifts-TG-Woodware-chopping-board

Gin-gifts-Liberty-London

Back to the hard stuff now. This beautiful bottle would make a lovely gift, and you can rest assured this isn’t a case of style over substance. The recipe has been rediscovered in an old distiller’s handbook from the 1840s, and faithfully reproduced for Liberty London by Jensen’s in Bermondsey.

It’s billed as ‘an authentic modern interpretation of traditional Victorian gin’, flavoured with the classic root, musk and spice gin botanicals that were found in Victorian cocktails – you won’t find any synthetic sweeteners here!

Gin-gifts-John-lewis-Tatty-Devine-gin-bottle

Here’s a great gin – sorry – GYM bottle. The idea is to fill the bottle up with water and take it with you when you work out, its little carry case doubling as insulation to keep your drink cool. Of course you could fill it with G&T – we won’t tell! Just promise us you won’t mix alcohol and exercise!
