Let's be real, you were gonna spend the money anyway 🤪. So, do it at small businesses.

1. An exquisite gravity-defying decanter set that'll turn their liquor into art 👨🏾‍🎨 and do more than just look pretty. The shape is optimized for aeration resulting in a better-tasting drink. It comes in a gift box to guarantee a seamless gift-giving experience.
