We all know that one fabulous couple who has everything—the beautifully bedecked bar cart, the vintage decanters, the couch that looks gorgeous but is also somehow insanely comfortable—which can make buying a wedding gift for them a bit difficult. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. If they’re about to tie the knot and you’re stumped for a present, skip the gift card and look to these thoughtful, unique and, obviously, boozy wedding presents instead.
Thrillist's Best (and the Rest): What You Actually Need to Know About Natural Wine
Shaker & Spoon Cocktail Club
This is the gift that keeps on giving boozy delights long after last call. Shaker & Spoon offers one, three, six and 12 month cocktail subscriptions that include everything you need to mix delectable drinks—except booze. It’s perfect for the couple who likes to entertain at home but doesn’t always have time to make homemade tinctures and syrups. Each box has a specific theme like bourbon or caçhaca, so every month holds a new cocktailing adventure.
Expensive crystal Champagne flutes are no-brainer wedding gifts, but not every couple loves that classic style. These hand-painted flutes boast a stunning design that will make every toast feel like an extra special occasion. The elegant motif conjures the Roaring Twenties, so we suggest including the ingredients for a classic Prohibition cocktail like the French 75.
For the couple who loves the bright, bold style of mid-century design, this ice bucket is a home bar showpiece. Silver-plated copper gives it a timeless look that they’ll be able to pass down to the next generation of imbibers. Buy them a nice bottle of Champagne to help break it in.
There’s nothing that feels quite as awesome when entertaining at home than mixing delicious cocktails with an elegant set of tools. The pros swear by Cocktail Kingdom’s utensils, and their copper-plated set will pave the way for a life of cocktailing together. It includes a mixing glass, two weighted shaking tins, a jigger, Hawthorne strainer and mixing spoon. We’re sure it’ll earn you an invite to watch their skills in action.
Make entertaining a breeze with this sleek, modern punch bowl from Polish glassblowers Lsa. The deep design ensures they can make enough Fish House Punch so no glass runs dry too quickly. Throw in a book of punch recipes (we’re partial to David Wondrich’s Punch) so they never have to look far for a crowd-pleasing concoction.
This compact wine holder is especially great for small city apartments because it saves counter space with its hanging design. It holds six bottles, four glasses and has room in the center for tools like wine keys and bottle openers. Send them a few new bottles for their anniversary as a fun surprise one year later.
This hand-blown carafe is designed with a metallic finish and a flared mouth for easy pouring. It’s a fabulous nod to the Mad Men-era style with a sophisticated modern look that’ll add something special to every kind of home bar. Give them a bottle of great whiskey to complete the gift.
