I have to admit I used to have a strong dislike for gin, but as I have gotten older, the taste has grown on me. Now it is my drink of choice. I love it in a dirty martini, and I love it during warmer weather with flavoured tonic, but I didn’t know there was a whole other nature to gin. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed seeking out these gifts for gin lovers. They make me feel like a kid in a candy store! I am sure you will be as excited about them as I am.
Best gifts for gin lovers
Create lasting memories for someone close to you with a gin experience for two. Take a distillery tour with tastings, or take a master class. There are even gin and meal experiences. With so many options all over the UK, you can’t go wrong.
For someone who prefers to go it alone, there are gin experiences for 1. They may even get to try their hand at gin making themselves! Gin experiences for more than 3 people are also available. They can even take an online class.
Pink gin gifts
I love this! Aside from this pink gin being infused with delicious fruit flavours, it comes with a light to attach to the bottom. It brightens up the fancy bottle like a pink diamond. Even after the gin is long gone, the bottle can be refilled again and again to use with the light. After all, diamonds are forever.
Of course, you can’t go wrong buying their favourite bottle of pink gin, either full size or a hamper you create from minis. For a holiday gift, Christmas baubles filled with gin can decorate the tree. Don’t hang them too early, they may be gone by Christmas morning! If you are still not sure of which pink gin gift to get, a pink gift set of minis will give them a variety to sample.
Gin gifts by post
When you can’t be with them on that special day, have a gin gift sent to their letter box.
Personalised gin gifts
Getting them their own gin glass engraved with their name will make them realise how much they mean to you. You can even create your own gift set by adding a personalised gin board for cutting limes. As a funny gin gift, get a personalised prescription label to adhere to a bottle of gin. They actually look like real prescription labels from the pharmacist.
Cheap gin gifts
Earrings are a good stocking stuffer or a gift to just let someone know you are thinking of them. I love the dangly gin bottles the best. As a gin lover, I think I am going to ask for them for my birthday.
Another of my favourite cheap gin gifts are these gin holiday ornaments. Unlike the pink gin baubles, these are not filled with liquor, so they won’t do a disappearing act before Christmas. Also very affordable are gin coasters. Some allow for personalisation with a name. Everyone always needs more coasters.
Gin gifts for keeping drinks chilled
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so why not fill her glass with some? The larger size ice cubes take longer to melt, so they keep cocktails cold without watering them down too quickly.
Turn their cocktails into the talk of the town with herb and fruit ice moulds. They can place fruit or herbs in the mould, cover the tray, and fill it with water with the funnel. As the ice melts, the herbs and fruit will be released into the cocktail.
I was at a party once where they used light-up LED ice cubes. They aren’t actually ice, so they don’t water down the drinks. Plus they look really cool.
Gin gifts for him
Whether you decide to get him a personalised bottle that comes with a playlist, gold rimmed gin glasses, or send something to his letterbox, something here is sure to catch your eye. But beware, she might want some of these great gin gifts too.
If he is a Star Wars fan, you can get him this unique Stormtrooper decanter. Gin cufflinks will look grand on his sleeves at work or for a night out. My favourite might be the gin and tonic set with the little limes.
Hampers are great gifts because they contain a variety. This hamper comes in a fancy gift box and is filled with tasty treats. It includes three varieties of gin, tonic, chocolate, and gin flavoured popcorn. Yum!
This pink gin hamper will tickle her pink for Valentine’s Day. Who doesn’t love pairing gin and tasty chocolates? Create a happy birthday with a gin and cheese hamper, which includes three varieties of gin and four tasty cheeses. This one is right up my alley. My husband and I like to have cheese, crackers, and cocktails for dinner at least once a week for a date night.
Gin gifts for her
Normally I am not into the colour pink, but this gift makes me feel like I am Cinderella trying on the glass slipper. You can even select from three gin options.
For Valentine’s Day it will be romantic to give her a heart shaped bottle of gin. There are three types of gin to choose from. You can also get her Gin Eau de Perfum to keep in her purse. Then she can keep this refreshing scent with her all day.
Sweet gin gifts
These drink stirrers get their taste from flavoured gins. The stirrers start infusing the cocktails as soon as they touch the drink. Each stirrer can be used for up to three beverages. They look so tasty, I can’t wait to try them all!
Gin humbugs look like confections from long ago, but they have a modern twist. They are infused with flavoured gin, giving them a tasty fruit essence. These are definitely not like the peppermint humbugs found in Harry Potter! If you prefer lollipops, try these old fashioned swirled gin lollipops with that same yummy zest.
Unique gin gifts
Are you tired of giving them the same old gin every holiday? We exchange birthday gifts with our neighbours, and each year everyone receives a bottle of their favourite liqueur. While it is a nice gesture, let’s face it, we are going to buy our favourite bottle anyway. This occasion, why not try something different? Choose one of these unique Japanese gins instead?
For a more whimsical gift, give Snow Globe Orange & Gingerbread Liqueur. Even after the holiday decorations are put away, they will want to keep this bottle on display. It actually has gold snow cascading around it once shaken, like a real snow globe!
Sharish Blue Magic Gin is a novelty that will make them feel as if they just rubbed the genie’s lamp. When tonic is added to the gin it magically changes colour from blue to pink!
You can try an Opihr gin set if you want to give them something more exotic with a taste of spice. There is even alcohol free gin for those that want to take a break from drinking, but don’t want to give up their tasty cocktails.
Gin gift sets of unique glassware
These are the best gin gifts for cat lovers. These cute feline friends will have them purring with delight as they sip their gin cocktails.
Gin themed gifts
Whether they look like cocktails, smell like cocktails, or are made from actual gin bottles, these candles will cause their faces to light up with joy.
Gin and tonic presents
Make them feel special with some of the best gin gift sets. Give a gin and tonic subscription for either three or six months with personalised labels on each bottle. Or get a custom hamper where you choose from a selection of gin, tonic, and garnishes. For Valentine’s Day, give her a gin and spa set. There are so many great options, you will have a difficult time deciding which one to get.
A flavoured gin and tonic set that contains 4 flavoured gins and 4 flavoured tonics will give them many drink combinations. Or you can get a more classic gin and tonic gift set that comes in a fancy black box.
Best gin gifts
This kit has everything they need to create their own gin from vodka. While juniper berries, botanicals, and necessary equipment are included, the vodka is not. Make sure to give them this necessary liqueur so they can start distilling right away.
Maybe they don’t want to create their own gin, but they still want those infused flavours. Infusion tea bags work the same way as regular tea bags. Place one in a glass of gin, and let it seep for a few minutes. Then add tonic, and remove the tea bag for a tasty cocktail. To infuse a whole bottle, infusion tins contain botanicals they can add in the gin bottle itself. For those who prefer sweeter drinks, get them a set of cocktail syrups to add flavour.
Gin related gifts
Send them on a journey back in time to learn about the origins and history of their favourite beverage.
Someone who likes to cook will love a gin cookbook. This one is filled with cocktails, cakes, dinners, and desserts, all using gin. Mixologists will love Gin the Mood, which contains fifty gin cocktail recipes. Make sure you get them a barware set so they will have the equipment they need to try out these tasty libations.
Gin gifts for cocktail making
This barware set has all of the basic tools needed to create fun cocktails. It comes with its own stand, so it can stay on the counter. They won’t waste time digging around in a drawer when they want to make a drink.
A cocktail recipe glass is great for beginners. It has measurements and recipes right on the side of the glass.
Special gin gifts
This decanter can be personalised to commemorate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.
A decanter can be a practical gift as well. My husband and I have a hobby of creating liquor infusions. Since we are experimenting, we don’t want to infuse an entire bottle. With a decanter, we can pour the amount we want to infuse in the vessel without having to use the whole bottle of gin. If they like to create infusions, they could even keep several decanters on hand for their mixtures. Try some fun novelties like a skull decanter or this iridescent decanter with glasses.
These stirrers are all topped with colourful cocktails and are practical as well as pretty.
Any bartender will also need garnish sticks decorating drinks with fruits or olives. If they are infusing their own gin, blank decanter labels and chalk markers are important accessories for labelling infused bottles.
Useful gin gifts
A garnish caddy with lids helps organise garnishes and can be placed in the refrigerator when done mixing up drinks to keep them fresh. If they can’t get fresh fruit, freeze dried fruit garnishes can be stored in the pantry and dropped into a drink for garnish. These dried fruits rehydrate inside the drink, providing a fun effect.
You can also get them flower botanicals for garnishing drinks. A gin mist gift set comes with a mini gin bottle and a mister which sprays a taste of lime over the top of the glass without having the work of preparing actual fruit.
Wearable gin gifts
I chose these gifts for their amusing sayings. Get a gin-fluencer t-shirt or one that says, “ Save water, drink gin.” Or choose a hoodie that says, “Let the evening be gin”. For the feet, get 3 pairs of socks with funny sayings and pictures.
Best gin presents
I just have to get one of these. Instead of spending the whole gathering mixing drinks, set a few on this drink tree for them to take as they pass by. If they don’t have glasses that will fit, get them a set of 24 gin glasses. While the drink tree will fit many kinds of glasses, it was created with this glass set specifically in mind.
For more party fun, add cocktail shimmers to drinks to give them a fancy, colourful glow. Or give them a mesmerising colour changing infusion kit. This kit has them making gin that will change colour when tonic is added. Guests will love this display of magic.
Gin tasting sets
As an added gift, give them a gin drink journal to keep track of their favourites. This can also be taken along to distilleries or for use when creating infusions at home. With all these amazing gins, they will need a gin scratch off poster for checking off all the gins they try.
