Champagne Bears Carry-On Cocktail Kit
A stocking stuffer for your favorite frequent flier. It's complete with everything they'll need to craft two champagne cocktails (except for the champagne.) Use the delicious Sugarfina Gummy Bears as a cheerful garnish or a yummy chaser. Couldn't be cuter.

Technically, these could be called Blackberry Mimosas. They couldn't be easier, and are made with simple syrup.

White Christmas Mojito
Even if you aren't having a white Christmas, you can pretend with this wintry white cocktail. It's creamy and coconut-y and ever so Christmasy!

Jonathan Adler Barware
These Rocket Decanters are by far the most fun ever. Pick their poison - Vodka, Gin, or Whiskey at Neiman Marcus. The Marble and Brass Barbell Set is great exercise with all the heavy lifting of cocktails during the holiday. The Malachite Ice Bucket and Cocktail Glasses are Park Ave luxe and Chinoiserie chic.

A Very Merry Ornamentini
Made with Tito's ( Hello Sharon ). I just had to share this pretty presentation. How fabulous to fill the cocktail into the Christmas ornament! You can find a good variety of clear ornaments at Amazon. Find the fabulous recipe at
Inspired By Charm  

Campfire Cocktail
Serve this cozy cocktail by the fireside. It's made with vodka and Baileys. The best part for me is that finishing touch on the rim! It's made by dipping the glass in chocolate syrup and rolling in crushed graham crackers. Oh my!
Lark & Linen

Meadow Ice Bucket
One of the best looking buckets you can find. The simply chic but classic shape gets a contemporary twist with a braided rope and hammering. Gorgeous and under $100

Satsuma and Pomegranate Campari
Campari is always a sophisticated spirit. This recipe is a little sweet, a little tart and has just a  little bit of a bitter undertone.
Bakers Royale 

Emoji Cocktail Linens
Here's your hostess gift for all of your Instagram friends and followers. Just too funny but nice at the same time.  There's nothing like linens for cocktails.

Gingerbread Eggnog Cocktail 
I remember growing up, only my Father and I liked eggnog. I still love it, but find the homemade variety to be best. Never fear, if you don't want to go to the trouble,  this recipe can be made with store bought. It just sounds like the best darn cocktail around. Cheers, Dad!

Essential Guide To Champagne
Featuring Producers, and Terroirs of the Iconic Region, this newly released book will please the most demanding wine lover. A groundbreaking guide that comes complete with maps of the Champagne region. It's elegantly packaged. I found it for much less than other places at

Smokey Quartz Whiskey Gems 
The ANNA by RabLabs set is the answer to keeping your cocktail cool as quartz without diluting it. Genius and ever so elegant.

The Last Rasp
This is for the Vodka drinkers. It's made with Bombay Sapphire. Here's a tip: While the basil itself doesn't actually flavor the drink, the aroma of it makes all the difference when sipping, so make sure use the freshest basil you can buy.
House and Garden UK 

Birthstone Wine Bottle Stopper

Bollinger Limited Edition Brut Rose in Metal Gift Box
If you want to knock my socks off, I mean "their" socks off, pop for this! A 2006 vintage is a little bit of a splurge, but it is impressive and ever so glamorous in gold metal. And don't worry the bubbly lives up to the packaging. It has a rating of "94" by Decanter Magazine. 

Candy Cane Cocktail
This shaken not stirred Christmas Cocktail is filled with festive flavors like Peppermint Schnapps, Godiva Chocolate Liquor, marshmallows and more. Click below to watch a detailed video.

Cranberry Martini
Based on a Bobby Flay cocktail that he made on air with Ina Garten, this is Christmas in a glass. The secret here is that you infuse the vodka with the orange zest and cranberries at least 2 days ahead.

Liquor Infuser Set
Perfect for the cocktail connoisseur or even the amateur mixologist. Here's everything they need to craft their own boozy concoctions. It's a fun find at
