Christmas shopping can always be a little stressful, there are people who you just know instantly what to buy for them (and have probably had it tucked away since June) and others who cause a level of nervousness to build up inside of you, not to mention the works secret santa, the annual school friend get-together and men, well because they’re just tricky aren’t they? (sorry gents!) I thought I’d pull together a “The Perfect gift for your G&T loving friend” hopefully you’ll find something to inspire you and it will suit all budgets! So, in no particular order…
#1 Skin Gin: If you’ve never heard of Skin Gin it is an incredibly clean, smooth gin with a strong mint presence. The USP for the brand is that they produce limited edition bottles; the gin remains the same within each one (so you know it’s good) but the bottles change, with only 150 in production this year. At £44 a bottle, if you know a serious gin collector this makes a great gift. You can find it here.
#2 Kitchen Provisions: Make your own gin. If you’ve followed me for a while you may have read my review about McLean’s Gin, they started from someone gifting them a make your own gin kit and they are now an award winning gin company. If you know someone who may fancy giving their own gin a go these fabulous kit comes with the full how to, just add vodka and you’re good to go. Currently priced at £30 and you can click here to buy!
#3 The London Chocolate Co: Gin Chocolate Truffles (Yum!) OK, so there are 8 chocolates in a box, but there was an accident with two of them… I’m just not sure where they went… Each box includes a G&T Truffle, a Seville Orange Gin Truffle, a Rhubarb and Ginger Gin Truffle and a Raspberry Gin Truffle all make in Britain. They make such a lovely unique gift and are only £12 a box. Order here.
#4 The Gin Bar: Do you know someone with a fabulous gin collection? These Gin Bar signs make fabulous gifts, and you can work with Martha Heritage to have them edited to say whatever you would like. How cool is that? Only £22 a sign you can contact Martha Heritage here.
#5 Festive Boozeballs: Buying pre-made gin baubles can be expensive, so why not have a go at making your own and filling them with your favourite gin. They make super cute stocking fillers. You can buy the baubles here, and if you feel like doing something extra special the recipe for my mulled gin is here. 😉 A pack of six retails at around £8.
#6 Everlong Print Co: Lets mix up gin and interiors, these beautiful prints come in a range of sizes and give you the perfect garnish for your drinks or provide a cocktail list for your guests to choose from. They do individual cocktail prints starting at £8 with the full pieces at around £21. They’ve even given me the discount code BETH20 for you to get 20% off – winner… Click here to have a nosey.

Each bauble is £10 and adds a little fun to the Christmas gift ideas, plus if you haven’t tried this gin yet it’s delicious and beautifully bottled.
