The holidays are officially here, and with it comes everyone’s favorite pastime — finding the perfect gift for you or a loved one. If you’re stuck on what to get the at-home bartender in your life, don’t fret! We have you covered.

These five gifts will delight and dazzle even the most novice of mixologists.

From handsome gift sets to cocktail recipe books, there’s a little something for every bartender on this list

 The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao X Compartés Chocolate Pairing Kit is an essential kid for newbies and novices alike — or anyone who enjoys a smooth, beautiful whiskey experience. Included in the set is an eye-catching case, a bottle of The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao, a set of 10 truffles created just for this gift set by Compartés Chocolate, Glencairn glasses, and a special pairing guide! This decadent gift might be hard to find, but ultimately it will be worth your while!

Looking for something unique for your favorite whiskey drinker? Look no further than the  George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend! This limited edition blend has both the Three Chamber Rye from Leopold, blended with George Dickel’s new (and unreleased until now) column style rye. The taste is smooth yet bold, making it the perfect whiskey to sip by an open fire. This blend also harkens back to when America drank heavy-bodied rye whiskeys on a regular basis. This bottle will only set you back $109.99, making it an extravagant, yet reasonably priced limited edition whiskey.

Looking for something for the brut fan on your list? Look no further than this Usual Brut 12 Pack! This brut is simply divine, with a sleek beaker style that pours gracefully into flutes. With notes of lemon, elderflower, and bergamot, this is an uplifting sparkling wine that tastes like the holidays. This set is perfect for your New Years’ parties as well, as everyone can indulge with their own bottle. At $96 this is a steal — and we wouldn’t blame you if you bought more than one box!

Plume & Petal is no stranger to the holidays, and this season, they’ve concocted something easy for the bartender in your home! Their pre-made spritz cans are perfect for anyone who wants a pre-made, ready-to-go delicious drink. With flavors such as cucumber, lemon, and peach spritz, there’s a flavor profile for everyone. I personally love the peach spritz. It’s light, refreshing, and at only 100 calories per can, I can enjoy it without the guilt!

Looking to pair your purchases with holiday-themed glassware? These Christmas Vacation Glass Moose Mugs are perfect! Based on the same glassware the Griswold’s used in the classic holiday movie, these 8-ounce mugs will delight and entertain anyone who comes across them. Here’s hoping your holiday season goes more smoothly than theirs!
