Christmas is a special time. The carols, candies, hot cocoa, and who can forget the presents! It’s a feeling like no other. So much planning goes into buying that perfect present for your favourite cousin, BFF, the aunt you’re closest to and anyone else. But, year after year, this excitement also brings with it the challenge of what exactly should you buy for whom.
To help you this year, our little elves came up with a few bar gifts that make for great Christmas presents for most people. Discover your favourites from this list of bar gifts that will earn you tons of compliments. Most lists online start with chocolates and end with knit scarves. Ignore them. This year spend on something that makes a statement but within your budget.
Why bar gifts you ask? We say these are ideal for almost all of us because as adults, we’re always entertaining at home. Birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, dinners and so many other celebrations. Wouldn’t it be great if your hosts have some good-looking barware? The best way to do that is to buy some for them. Christmas will give you the perfect opportunity to get bar gifts for your friends and relatives. These are some of our best picks.

Drinks at home will feel like drinks at a fancy bar with this uber stylish bar set. Complete with a peg measurer, ice picker, knife, and bottle opener, this set of bar tools is the perfect addition to any home bar. And Christmas is the ideal occasion for a present like this. Sturdy stainless steel will make sure it lasts several seasons. And the shiny brass finish adds that slight touch of elegance to it. This present is great for anyone who loves to host.
Class in Glass
A set of exquisite glasses makes for a great bar gift. There’s a right kind of glass for every drink. Imagine drinking vodka in a whisky glass, a martini in a beer glass. Doesn’t sit well, right? That’s because only the right pairing of glass with its drink will make your experience enjoyable. If you host drinks at home often, you need to have the perfect glasses for all. Smooth and solid high ball glasses like these are ideal to serve cocktails at any party. Add them to your list of bar gifts for Christmas this year.
Is there something like the perfect bar gift? Yes. This is. With non-stop entertaining around Christmas, it’s impossible to keep up with ice requirements. You might even be tempted to get a picnic sized cooler at home. Don’t. The last thing anyone’s guests want to see is their ice coming out of a plastic box. Things will stay cool with this brass bucket that conveniently doubles up as a wine and champagne chiller. This handy pail-style bucket could go on to become a conversation-starter with its precious pale gold colour and an understated dragonfly at the rim. Just ice or your prized champagne, the Sitara Ice Bucket makes for a fantastic Christmas bar gift.
Keep the party going with a stylish and practical bar gift for your friends this Christmas. Ditch the usual books, chocolates, hats and bags to give out this season. Stuff the stockings with uncommon bar gifts like this beautiful set of brass Agate Stirrers. Any home bar needs stirrers. But most people underestimate the need for them and don’t buy any. Surprise your friends with this missing piece of their barware collection. Make Christmas truly merry.
Whiskey Decanter – Know someone who appreciates whiskey? No questions asked, a whiskey decanter is the Christmas bar gift they need this year. Made in Spain with recycled glass, this lovely decanter with chiselled surface detail is a definite eye-catcher. This decanter might even go on to become the statement piece of their entire barware.
