Gifting Ideas For Colleagues

1. Bar Tools Gift Set

Gift Set
If they love mixing cocktails at home, bar tools are one of the most functional and stylish gifts that you can give them. You can opt for a high-quality cocktail shaker that they can use to mix and shake their drinks. 

Another gifting idea is to give them a whole barware set. Many brands offer a consolidated gift set of all the necessary tools. Alternatively, if you want to customise, you can create a whole set by buying each tool individually. Just make sure that you have all the essential bar tools to include in your gift set such as a cocktail shaker, cocktail jigger, bar spoon, cocktail strainer, etc. You may also include an elegant mixing glass to make it a whole bundle.

2. Cocktail Kits

These are great gifts for someone who loves enjoying cocktails. Especially if you are running late and are looking for a last-minute gift, then cocktail kits are an ideal choice. Cocktail kits are thoughtful gifts as it comes with spirits, mixers, glassware, and sometimes even creative garnishes. Basically, it has everything you need to craft that one cocktail to perfection! If a colleague is a fan of cocktails, then you surely know what’s their favourite tipple. And once you know their favourite drink, you can search for brands that have a ready-made kit for that cocktail. 

If you don’t find a ready-made cocktail kit, no worries. You can curate one yourself. For example, if Gin and Tonic is your colleague’s most-cherished drink, then first choose a top-shelf gin bottle. You can opt for a Tanqueray or Gordon’s gin. Then, look for a premium quality tonic water bottle. Add a Copa glass that is perfect to sip this delightful cocktail. Also, don’t forget to include a well-designed recipe card to craft the gin and tonic cocktail. Add all of this into an elegant bamboo basket, and gift wrap it stylishly. Your cocktail kit is ready to go!

3. Whisky Gifts

Whisky Gifts
Sipping a smooth and fine whisky after a long and tiring day is absolute bliss. If your colleague loves old-fashioned cocktails or simply a sophisticated whisky on the rocks, then consider gifting them a bottle of whisky. They will be charmed by your thoughtful gesture!

Scotch whiskies are a great choice for whisky gifting. You can buy a bottle of Johnnie Walker if they love rich and robust flavours, a bottle of the Singleton if they love smooth and rich single malts, or Talisker if they have an adventurous spirit. 

4. Cocktail Recipe Cards

How about you gift them a whole bunch of cocktail recipe cards? You can compile a list of their favourite drinks, curated specifically for various occasions. Design a beautiful layout, add the recipes and print them out or go the old-school way and write each recipe on elegant card paper. 

Organise these recipes in a box, and sort them out based on flavours, occasions or spirits used. This way, your colleague will have a delectable tipple that’s perfect for their every mood. This is a meaningful gift idea that will leave a lasting impression on them and every time they pick out a recipe to mix, they will think of you.
