4 Appropriate Instances To Give The Gift Of Alcohol

Have you ever wondered if alcohol would make a good gift? Of course, there are certain people you would never consider buying alcohol for, including those who aren't old enough to drink, those who can't drink, and those who don't drink at all. However, there are some instances when buying a gift from the liquor store is appropriate for those who can and do drink.

Here are four instances that it's appropriate to give the gift of alcohol.

1. Housewarming Parties

It can be a milestone in someone's life to buy a new home, and it's something that should be celebrated. If you're invited to the housewarming party, this is the perfect time to give the gift of alcohol.

If it's wine you're gifting, present it in a wine gift bag. Craft beer is another good option and should be given in festive beer packaging. To make the gift extra special, throw in a set of wine glasses or personalized pint glasses.

2. Birthday Parties

Some people cringe when they turn another year older, but whether they embrace their birthday or not, the recipient will love getting alcohol on their special day. To make it the best gift possible, give them a bottle or case of their favorite liquor.

If you're not sure, you can always give them a gift card to their favorite liquor store. Whether you choose to buy the alcohol yourself or let them do the buying, always remember to buy a birthday card, too.

3. Weddings

If the newlyweds enjoy having drinks with dinner, why not get them their favorite wine as a wedding present? Vintage sparkling wine would make an especially great wedding gift, but since a wedding is such a celebratory occasion, you can even spring for an expensive bottle of champagne.

To present your gift, make the bottle of alcohol the centerpiece of a gift basket and include flutes or tulip-shaped wine glasses.

4. Holiday Parties

If you're going to a holiday party, whether it's for a nonprofit organization, work, or just friends getting together, you'll want to buy the host a gift. Some beverages, such as Samuel Smith Winter Welcome, are brewed specifically for the holiday season. Another holiday-themed option is Four Pillars Christmas Gin.

Other popular options when it comes to giving the gift of alcohol at a holiday party include malt whiskey, cognac, vodka, and red wine. Make sure to put the bottle in a holiday gift bag, and if you want, you could also give a food that matches the drink you're giving.
