It’s been a long year for everyone, and so, if you’re looking for a holiday gift for someone, but aren’t quite sure what to get them, might I recommend getting them an alcohol gift set.
While I am in no way encouraging drinking as a way to forget your problems, what I am doing saying is that an alcohol gift set lets someone explore different styles of their favourite drink (often with a vessel or two thrown in to enjoy it in), whether that be bold red wine, flavour-packed whiskey, picnic-ready spritz or, as is increasingly common, tipples that are non-alcoholic.
So, if you’re on the hunt for an alcohol gift set for someone else, or even just for yourself for an indulgence treat this holiday season, read on to discover some of our favourites.
