Sure, it's still October, and we haven't even celebrated Halloween yet. But that doesn't mean we can't start thinking about Christmas! If you don't start making plans and preparations now, you run the risk of being overwhelmed and stretched too thin once the holiday season gets underway. It's nice to be able to check some gifts off your lists ahead of time, right? Some people buy gifts all year long, whenever they see something that someone on their list might like to find under the tree. Personally, we like to get an early start, and when we see stuff like this Christmas card with a bottle of gin inside, we can't help but start planning our gift-giving! Now, if only we lived in the UK...
Daffy's Gin, a purveyor of fine spirits in the United Kingdom, has come up with the best Christmas card for the gin lover in your life. You know that thing where you get a card in the mail, and are pleasantly surprised to open it and find another gift, like cash or a gift card? Daffy's gin cards are like that, but with double servings of gin inside the pretty card.
The cards are sized perfectly for post delivery, but how cool would it be to hand them out in person? They're being sold on the Daffy's website, and in Harvey Nichols stores in the UK. Sadly, it doesn't look like international delivery is an option, but if you're living across the pond or are planning a visit there before the holidays, you can pick up one card for £7.49, or a six-pack for £44.94.
Proving that people in the UK have the best boozy gift options, the Lakes Distillery also has a gin gift for the holiday season, and this one is really festive! If cards aren't your thing, maybe these pretty gin-filled baubles will tickle your fancy.
This gift set includes 3 glass baubles, each filled with a different gin. You get The Lakes Gin, The Lakes Sloe Gin, and The Lakes Dansom Gin. Plus, the little baubles are so cute, and can actually be hung on the tree! Even better: this set is available for international shipping through The Whisky Shop (but it'll cost you a pretty penny!). Worth it for the right person on your list this holiday season!
