16 Alcohol Gift Ideas For 2015 That Go Above And Beyond Your Standard Bottle Of Wine

You want to give your friends the perfect gift this holiday season, but oh what shall you choose? In the past, your go-to in a pinch was to stick a bow on a bottle of wine and call it a present, but that’s getting a little old. This year, hit the gift-giving process out of the park with these cool alcohol gift ideas for every person on your list. Trust me, you are about to become a hero at your next holiday gift exchange. 

Giving gifts can be a stressful process. You may think you are getting the ideal present for someone, but they could just as easily hate it and return it the next day. There is nothing worse than getting the dreaded forced smile and tentative “oh you shouldn’t have…” from someone you care about when they open a gift you carefully picked for them.

I can promise you, that won’t be happening this year — because everyone loves booze! With this exhaustive roundup of alcohol-themed gifts, those party animals in your life will be able to continue bringing their party magic for years to come. After all, there is no better way to share the holiday spirit than, well, with a few holiday spirits. Cheers!
