10 GIFTS FOR A GIN LOVER
Here’s a rundown of the 10 best ginspired gifts you can buy this Christmas. These gifts are guaranteed to delight any gin lover in your life.
1. Earl Grey Creme Gin Infusion Bottle, by The Bluebird Tea Co. | £12.00
Two brews have the hearts of our great nation: tea and gin (or G&Tea for short). So, can it get any better than brewing up your very own tea infused gin? No, we didn’t think so either.
Filled with Bluebird’s award-winning fresh and fragrant vanilla Earl Grey blend, this apothecary styled bottle is first on our Christmas gin wish list. Just add a dose of the good spirit and you’ll be 48 short hours away from the best brew you’ve ever tasted.
2. Gin & Tonic Caramel Sauce, by Joe & Seph’s | £5.99
Festive joy in a jar. All we need is this – and a spoon.
3. Skin & Tonic Gin & Tonic Lip Balm, by Lovely | £5.25
If you can’t drink it, wear it*. Made with nourishing shea butter and the essential oils of juniper and lemon, Lovely have created the perfect way for you to indulge at any time of the day. This is the only lip care we need right now. Where’s the mistletoe, you say?
