2019 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Cocktail Lover

The holiday shopping season is almost here! I’m here to make it easier for you with a few gift ideas for the cocktail lover in your life.

Are you the kind of person who shops for holiday gifts months in advance, or do you wait until the last minute? 

I’m somewhere in the middle. I try to think of Christmas gifts for my friends and family all year long, then I stash them away in a special spot and get them out to wrap once our tree is up. 

But there’s always someone lingering on the list, it seems, that has me shopping at the last second! 

I used to do holiday gift guides every year on the blog, and you guys loved them. I still love reading them on other blogs (Re: the hard-to-buy-for people on my shopping list!) but I thought it would be fun to share with you some gift ideas! 

So I decided to bring them back this year, just for you!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some themed gift guides to help you shop for your people. 

I decided to start with — what else? — a cocktail theme! If you are a regular reader, you will know that I love all things cocktails. 

This list has everything from homemade gifts you can make to fun items you can buy them for their home bar (including a home bar!). 

Hopefully you will find something your friends and family will love here, but if not, don’t worry! I’ve got a bunch more gift guides coming your way over the next few weeks.

Gifts for the Cocktail Lover

Buy or make your cocktail lover a gift they will treasure! From fun ingredients to homemade gifts to bar accessories, these gifts are sure to make your mixologist happy this holiday.

Bar Carts

Give your home bartender a place to stash their bar goodies! They are a pricier gift, but if that's in your budget, they'll love having a statement piece like this in hteir home!

DIY Gifts

These gifts take a little more time, but your cocktail lover will adore it. As any mixologist knows, craft cocktails take time!

Bar Tools & Accessories

Help your mixologist stock their bar with the best tools for cocktail mixing!


How the cocktail looks is everything. Get some cute glasses, garnishes or coasters to help your home bartender take their drinks to the next level.

Let me know in the comments if you have any hard-to-buy for folks you need help with! I’d love to help. // susannah

    What a fun round-up! My dad has become quite the at-home bartender in recent years, so these are some great ideas to round out his supplies.

      Oh Anne, that’s so nice! I am sure your dad would love some of these things. How fun that he is enjoying home bartending! I am partial, of course. 😉
