You can’t move this year for gin related gift ideas. If it isn’t gin and tonic tea bags (yes they do exist, Fortnums do them), to gin t-shirts then it is actual gin in a multitude of flavours and containers. I have seen so many different ideas for the gin enthusiast this year I thought I would do a short round up of them all.
Kicking off, of course, with Blogger Gin. Forget buying a full bottle of any other this year, this is the one you want. Made by me. I know, right?! It even has my signature on the bottle to prove it.
If you want to get your hands on a bottle, you need to be quick as we have sold over half the stock already! Available to buy from The Gin Parlour for £35.95 plus postage
If you want something as a stocking filler though, may I recommend any one (or all) of the following:
A subscription to Gin Magazine. Launched this month, the first issue of the quarterly magazine is on sale now. Packed with gin related info I signed up as soon as I saw it mentioned on Twitter and was impressed the first issue. All info is here: Gin Magazine.
How about a giant bauble filled with gin? This one from the Lakes Distillery is the biggest I have seen, filled with 20cl of award winning gin. Available from Find me a Gift it’s just under £20
Who doesn’t love popcorn?! And what could be better than gin and tonic popcorn?! Joe and Seph’s popcorn now comes in a huge range of flavours, including this cheeky edition. You can buy it on Amazon for £11.99
I picked these up in Lakeland when we were up in Wilmslow recently, along with the marshmallows, below. The gummies are £2.99 and also come in Prosecco flavour. The marshmallows below are £5.99, though look to be currently out of stock. Fingers crossed they come back in soon.
Lakeland also do a gin hamper which I am kicking myself for not buying when I was in there. Packed with all sorts of gin treats, it is only £34.99
The original gin baubles. These sold out online last year and you then couldn’t get them for love nor money. I managed to get hold of a set via a long distance dash to the Good Food Show at the NEC where Pickerings were exhibiting. No tree was complete without a set in 2016 and the trend looks set to continue this year.
You can get a box of six here for just over £30.
Have you seen anything else that you think should be included in my gin guide? Let me know if you have!
