    1. A revolving bottle dispenser that'll give you quick and easy access to your favourite liquors with just a press of the buttons. The mounts for each bottle are spring loaded, so they can fit a variety of bottle sizes.

    2. A set of drink markers that'll help you distinguish your drink from your roomie's, because we left sharing drinks back in 2019. Since they "grab on" to your glass, they're more versatile than regular wine markers that just wrap around the stem.

    3. A decanter set that'll make you feel like you're on the set of Mad Men. It's budget-friendly, making it a great starter kit if you're just getting into the world of whiskey.

    4. A garnish compartment tray that'll help you put the finishing touches on your handcrafted beverages. Each compartment is removable, so they're also great for filling with sauces and condiments when you're eating.

    5. This fancy electric corkscrew that'll pop open your bottle of vino in seconds. Gone are the days of stabbing at that stubborn little stopper.

    6. A rustic bar set that'll supply you with every tool of the trade, conveniently packed in a custom tray. You'll be prepared to tackle any recipe with this matching set (that you can mount on a wall to save some counter space, BTW).

    7. A balcony bar that'll help you make the most of your outdoor space. It comes with brackets that'll make installation a breeze, whether your balcony is made of glass, metal, or concrete. It's also foldable, so you can lay it flush to the barrier when you're not using it to save space.

    8. A handcrafted wood muddler that'll help you smush out every last bit of flavour out of your fruity add-ins. The smaller end is great for single drinks and the larger end (and overall length) are perfect for pitchers.

    9. An stovetop espresso maker, so you can whip up a delicious and Insta-worthy espresso martini. It's also great for camping trips, since it doesn't require any electricity (just a hot plate or gas stove).

    10. A pack of bottle spouts that'll help you get the perfect pour every time. They'll give you better control over the amount you're adding, and they're also really handy for oil or vinegars in the kitchen.

    11. A box of cocktail mixes that'll help you unwind with your favourite drinks at the end of a long day, without having to bust out 20 different ingredients.

    12. A set of felt coasters that'll protect your tabletops from scratches and water stains. Since they're made of fabric, they'll actually absorb the liquid instead of just making it pool up in a puddle.

    13. A citrus press that'll squeeze out a ton of fresh juice for your cocktails in no time. Margarita Mondays never tasted so good!

    14. A colouring book that features some of your favourite animals enjoying classic drinks. Each page also includes the recipe and prep instructions for the drink that's highlighted.

    15. A trio of ice cube moulds that'll keep your drinks cool for longer (they'll melt slower because of the size). Reviewers love that the included covers make them easy to store in the freezer without spilling out.

    16. Or a fancy ice machine that'll spit out some frozen cubes in under 15 minutes, if you're super impatient. It has a removable tray and scoop, so you can bring the ice outside or in another room without lugging the whole device around.

    17. Or a pack of reusable whiskey stones that'll keep your drinks cold without watering them down. They'll also save you from spilling water all over the place trying to play Tetris with your ice cube tray in the freezer.

    18. A pair of crystal champagne flutes, so you can celebrate special occasions with flair. Reviewers say that although they look delicate, they don't break when they get tipped over.

    19. A shot dispenser that'll pour out six shots at the same time, saving you from messy spills. It's great for when you're making multiple drinks at once.

    20. A sleek shaker bottle that looks beautiful enough to be a piece of decor. It comes with a built-in strainer cap, so you'll get a nice smooth pour without fruit bits and ice.

    21. A industrial-style rolling bar cart that'll keep your bottles and glasses from taking up precious real estate in your cabinets. Reviewers also love using it to store appliances in their small kitchens.

    22. These wine filters that'll help you enjoy a glass of your favourite vino without giving you a headache. The wand removes histamines and sulfites, so you won’t have to deal with congestion or a hot face.

    23. A jigger with measurements on it, so you'll get your recipes right down to the very last drop. It has grooves to indicate the measurements, so you'll be able to pour the right amount even in dim lighting.

    24. A Ninja blender to mix up the perfect piña colada or margarita at home, if you miss having a tropical drink in your hand. It has a crushing technology that turns ice into perfectly smooth slush.

    25. A DIY gin kit, if you've always wanted to try distilling on your own. All you'll need to do is take a neutral alcohol (like vodka) and infuse it with the included botanicals to craft your own perfectly-fragrant gin.

    26. A pair of copper mugs to serve up your Moscow Mules the proper way. The inner stainless steel metal keeps your drink cool for longer, so they're cute and functional.

    27. A bottle opener that'll snap onto any magnetic surface and is super satisfying to use. The little basket will catch your caps, if you like to collect them.

    28. A hanging glassware display that'll free up some cabinet space while keeping your glasses in reach. It'll also keep them from collecting dust, since they'll be flipped upside down.

    29. And finally, a neon light to complete your home bar, because that soft glow is just really, really comforting. It's battery powered, so it'll look neat and clean on your counter.
