2018 Gift Guide: Cocktails + Entertaining

1 – The prettiest cheese board I’ve ever seen – just look at that mother of pearl inlay! This wood, marble, and brass board is another great option, and I also love this ceramic slab with gold splatters from the Suite One Studio x Food52 collaboration.

2 – Two spirits that make wonderful gifts: this single-village Mezcal from Del Maguey (it’s sort of like the equivalent of a single malt scotch for Mezcal drinkers – if you live in a city you can also probably find it on Drizly) and Riptide Whiskey from Cali Distillery. 

3 – The cutest little cheese picks to go with your board!

4 – This infusion kit looks like a fun gift for a cocktail enthusiast! There are a few versions for different spirits, but each one comes with a bottle with a built-in strainer and a variety of infusing ingredients for making your own custom infusion!

5 – A ceramic french butter keeper is a wonderful luxury for anyone that entertains – or just enjoys soft butter on a fresh baguette. I bought this french butter keeper a little over a year ago, and it has basically changed my life. Plus, they look beautiful out on the dinner table during gatherings!

6 + 7 – A couple of fantastic recent cocktail books, including this amazing book from The Aviary – an innovative bar in New York City â€“ and Cocktail Codex, the most recent book from the folks behind Death & Co. The Aviary book is so beautiful it can even sit out as a coffee table book! 

8 – Linen napkins are the perfect addition to any table, so if you know someone who loves to set a beautiful table and doesn’t already have a set – a beautiful set of colorful linen napkins is basically like gold. I’m loving the color options for these linen napkins!

9 – This atomizer is a fun toy for cocktail enthusiasts. It turns any liquid into a fine spray!

10 – Know someone who loves wine? Get them a beautiful way to display their favorite bottles at home! Loving the sculptural quality of this brass wine rack.

11 – I’ve had this french market tote on my own wish list for the longest time. Perfect for anyone that makes regular trips to the farmer’s market!
