The Gin Gift Guide

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

And lastly:

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!
