    1. Gem-shaped shot glasses because if they're going to be shooting whiskey, it should be done out of something as luxe as these glasses.

    Urban Outfitters

    There *is* such a thing as classy pickleback shots.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $20.

    2. A skull ice mold that'll be the ~coolest~, most ~lively~ part of their drink.


    Ohhh, so many puns to make, so little time.

    Promising review: "This is AWSOME! Who doesn't want skull cubes when you show up to a party? I keep my freezer stocked with these little beauties now! I use it for Jello shots and flavored cubes to put in vodka. I like to add a little red food coloring so they stand out in a glass. Couldn't be happier with this flexible mold." —Wally

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95 (available in four shapes).

    3. A funny enamel mug for anyone who likes a "splash" of whiskey in their morning coffee.


    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. Speaking of coffee, a set of whiskey- and rum-aged coffee beans because booze and brew go together like PB&J.

    Amazon, Landy Maupin /

    Promising review: "If you know anyone who likes alcohol and loves coffee this is a perfect gift set for them! I bought this last year for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he loved it! He was using it sparingly because he wanted to save it. The beans are very fresh and smell a lot like the barrels/casks they came from. They grind beautifully and he uses them in his French Press. Very impressed with the beans and the customer service from this company! He loves his new box (different flavors!) that he just got for his birthday a few days ago. Looking forward to buying again." —Quincy

    Get a set of three bags from Amazon for $34.95 (available in whole bean and ground).

    15. An ice wedge glass to keep their drink perfectly chilled while they slowly sip and take in all of the wonderful aromatics.


    It comes with the glass and the top mold for making the ice wedge.

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift and it was a huge hit. The packaging was really well designed and looked awesome. The product actually works too! It kept my whiskey drinks cold for the whole night without swapping out the cube. Surprisingly, the glass was actually really nice quality as well. Tip: Plan ahead of a party by freezing multiples! Freeze your ice and then pop it out, bag it, throw it in the freezer, and then freeze another! Works great for keeping your drinks cold for as long as the party lasts." —Loladex

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    16. A cocktail recipe book with over 1,000 recipes so they can master their (and your) favorite cocktails.

    Life Happens /

    Promising review: "This is a great book which is the perfect complement for your home bar. To start with, the book is a great size to keep tucked out of the way but substantial enough that it will last a long time; plus its hard cover looks good. There are so many cocktail recipes in here that you won't run out. Add to that there's a ton of information about the basic tools and drinks/mixers as well as what you may want for a pretty substantial home wet bar. The book also provides information about the history of the cocktails and the various types of alcohol." —Stevil310

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    17. And! A field guide to whiskey to teach 'em a few more things while completing their bar cart. Just peep that gorgeous cover:


    I got this for my boyfriend who actually works in the whiskey industry, and he loved it! He said there were new things he learned as well as great refresher info. Aside from that, it looks so great on our bar cart!

    Get it from Amazon for $16.48.

    18. A spiced old fashioned kit that comes with all the essentials for making this delicious artisanal cocktail — and who doesn't love a good kit?!

    Uncommon Goods

    The kit comes with an easy-to-follow recipe card.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $30.

    Get it from on Everlong Print Co. on Etsy for $27.84+ (available in seven sizes and mL or fluid ounce measurements).

    Promising review: "This turned out way better than I thought it would! I purchased this and a set of whiskey rocks in a decorative box as a housewarming gift for my boyfriend. He absolutely loved it and everyone who enters the home and sees it also pays it a compliment and asks where they can find one for themselves. All the pieces were very secure in the box and protected by a few inches of styrofoam so shipping encountered no issues, which was my main worry when ordering this. Overall, great item — especially for the price." —B. Gibbs

    Get it from Amazon for $54.97.

    23. And finally, a whiskey bible written by a mega famous whiskey critic that lists his picks of the best bottles for the upcoming year.


    Each year since 2003, Jim Murray releases his list of favorite whiskeys. This year's edition has over 1,000 new entries added, plus tasting notes on 4,500+ lesser known whiskeys. Think of it as a huge guide to some of the best bottles out there! I've gifted the 2018 version to my boyfriend last year for Christmas, and he loves working through it and trying out Murray's top picks. I plan on ordering this one for him for the upcoming year to keep with tradition!

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99, and see previous editions of the Whisky Bible here.
