Christmas Gift Ideas

Being the Holiday season I thought it would be a good idea to present some great gift ideas for the Usual Suspects on your list from Your Side of The Bar.

Here are the links from last years post on Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Bar Friends Part I

Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Bar Friends Part II

Alcohol – This is a no brainer, however it is easy to buy the usual brand for a gift. Try something different and buy the same type, but a different brand than usual. For example if your gift receiver usually drinks Maker’s Mark, try giving them another brand of Bourbon, like Four Roses.

Cigars – This one can be a little tricky as I have received different brands for gifts and not all have been winners. (I know, they can’t all be winners kid) Error on the side of caution here and give a gift of the same type of cigars the recipient usually smokes.

A Practical Cork Screw – There are many different varieties available and I have tried most of them. (I received several as gifts over the years) While the fancy ones are great conversation pieces and look cool I prefer the more practical ones.

The Waiter’s Cork Screws are nice

and the one I prefer is one like this with a hinge

You might get a better price shopping locally for sales

Decanters – It is hard to go wrong with a nice Wine or Liquor decanter. I have several different types and they look great and practical also.

Most department stores carry a nice variety and here are some links.

Pottery Barn


Books on Mixology – There are many good books available on mixing drinks but none better than “The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks” by David Embury

Soda Stream – The Soda Stream soda maker was on the list last year and I cannot tell you how much I like mine.

The product tastes great and is very Eco-friendly as well as a great space saver. One item I could not do without here at MySideOFTheBar.

That will give you a good start and for more ideas be sure to follow @mysideofthebar on Twitter as I will be sending out several more ideas over the next month.

Happy Holidays, Happy Shopping, and Cheers
