Gift-giving can be tricky if you don’t know what to get someone. The trick is to look for hidden clues. After all, your bestie might say they don’t want anything, but if they’re a big fan of craft cocktails and bar carts, it’s safe to say a cocktail-themed gift could be a big hit.
While you could absolutely buy them a bottle of their favorite booze and call it a day, the holidays call for a bit more care (unless, of course, you go with a bottle like King Street Vodka, which is stunning and bound to become a vase once emptied). With that in mind, we rounded up 10 sure-to-please gifts for the cocktail lover in your life. Whichever you choose, they’re sure to swoon.
Drinkworks Home Bar by Keurig Single-Serve Pod-Based Premium Cocktails, Spirits and Brews Maker $299.99
Going to bars might be a bit out of the cards right now but with this incredible home bar, your bestie won’t even want to wait in line at her regular watering hole. The Drinkworks Home Bar is just as intuitive as a Keurig. Simply pick a cocktail, pop in a pod, put a cup into place, and within minutes, a craft-worthy cocktail will be at their fingertips.
What’s better than your friend’s favorite booze straight? Their favorite booze served in a cookie shot glass, of course! These tasty glasses are totally edible and pair especially well with Baileys, white Russian shots, and any other dairy-based shooters.
If your loved one adores candy as much as they do cocktails, you can’t go wrong with a box (or two or three) of Sugarfina’s cocktail gummy bears. These cranberry cuties are part of their seasonal offerings, but if you’re looking for a classic option, the champagne gummy bears are also a great gift.
Part of whipping up killer cocktails at home is having the tools to do so. This chic set will help your pal open, measure, pour, slice, and serve.

Forget about boring stainless steel cocktail shakers. This confetti cutie will add a bold flair to your BFF’s at-home bar.
If your Secret Santa is more of a wine gal than a cocktail connoisseur, you simply can’t go wrong with these wine glasses. Look familiar? That’s because they’re the *exact* glasses that Olivia Pope used in Scandal. #iconic
