The Gift of Portability
A bar cart lets you bring the bar to wherever you are. I like this 3 tiered bar cart. It provides plenty of storage and showcases your barware with style.
Pour your favorite spirit from a crystal decanter by Waterford. I love the modern design of the London series – contemporary yet still works with traditional.
Serve in these nicely sized double old fashioned glasses by Orrefors. The modern City design is a beautiful take on a traditional design, it works in any interior. These are roomy enough to hold a good sized ice sphere too.
The Glacious Ice Ball Press makes perfect, seamless spheres of ice. And they fit nicely in the Orrefors double old fashioned glasses above. Available in silver, black, or gold. Make sure to also pick up an ice cube mold to make blocks big enough to use the press. We like THESE.
Give the finishing touch to your cocktails with pure linen cocktail napkins. Available in a range of colors.
Gifts For the Wine Lover
We have some great gift ideas for the oenophile in your life. Wine lovers are sure to appreciate our picks for gifts.
The Riedel decanter isn’t just a sculptural piece of table art, it helps aerate the wine for maximum enjoyment.
Serve wine in these Riedel glasses. The Bordeaux glass makes a great all purpose wine glass.
Serve in style with this malachite inspired tray.
Open wine bottles like a pro with this waiters corkscrew by Coutale Sommelier. Made of heavy gauge stainless steel, it’s built to last.
Keep tasting notes on wines in style. Moleskine’s Wine Journal lets you keep track of your favorite wines in this hard cover notebook.
Shake It Up: Gifts for the cocktail master
Get your mixologist the gift of luxury and performance with the Georg Jensen Manhattan Cocktail Shaker. Mirror polished stainless steel accentuates the art deco styling. The generous 25 ounce size lets you make more than one cocktail at a time.
Keep ice handy with the Ettore Sottsass designed ice bucket. A classic design that has endured since its introduction in 1979.
Remember to pick up a pair of ice tongs. I love the sleek look of these Alessi Ice Tongs.
The right glass for the drink makes a difference in presentation and taste. Riedel has developed glassware for specific cocktail styles. I love these highball glasses and think they look great with drinks in them.
Give your drinks a finishing touch with these handmade glass swizzle sticks. The elegantly simple stirrers topped with a swirling ball of gold and silver glass are perfect for the holidays. Michigan based Vstyle Productions makes these in a rainbow of colors.
For your guests that would simply like a beer, keep this modernist elephant shaped bottle opener on your bar. The clean abstract design is by Georg Jensen, renowned for their high quality and design. Makes a great stocking stuffer!
The modern classic from Death & Company, one of the bars that spearheaded the craft cocktail movement. This is one of my go to cocktail references.
Bubbly Gifts for the Champagne Lover
Whenever a cork pops, a party starts; everyone seems happy when drinking champagne. Get the party started in style with these bubbly related gifts.
Make a statement with the Georg Jensen Indulgence Champagne Cooler. Chill up to three full sized bottles in ice in this mirror finished stainless steel sculptural vessel.
As long as it’s a party, serve the bubbly in these festive Champagne flutes by Waterford. I love these tall glasses with bubbles carved into the body.
In case you need to stopper the bottle, these are the best Champagne stoppers I’ve found. Easy to use, sturdy, and leak proof.
