Some moms love jewelry and flowers—time-honored gifts that are totally A-OK in our book. But if you have a mom who loves to party with a well-made cocktail in hand, this Mother’s Day is the perfect time to consider a present that’s a little more, well, boozy. From the cocktail enthusiast to the mama with a sweet tooth, here are seven ways to celebrate the most special woman in your life with the gift of a good time.
Thrillist's Best (and the Rest): What You Actually Need to Know About Natural Wine
If your mom loves the sand and surf, chances are she needs a drinking vessel that won’t break or blow over. Enter The Beach Glass, a durable acrylic goblet that’s perfect for taking to the beach, park or pool. The pointed stem digs neatly into the sand so she can relax without worrying about her wine, beer or cocktail tipping over.
This boozy cocktail subscription service will make mom feel like a master mixologist in her own home. Each month, Shaker & Spoon curates a themed box (May is agave blanco, btw) with everything you need to make 12 delicious cocktails—all she has to provide is the booze. Choose from a one-, three-, six- or 12-month subscription to keep celebrating mama well after Mother’s Day.
When mom isn’t entertaining, this gorgeous wine decanter doubles as an eye-catching art piece for her home bar. The curved design is easy to hold, simple to pour and makes an impressive statement during a dinner party or lively holiday brunch. Throw in a bottle of your favorite wine to complete the gift.
Everyone loves a sweet treat delivered right to their door—especially if the sugary morsels contain booze. Not only are these alcohol-infused cookie balls delicious, but they also make a beautiful gift. Choose from flavors like James Bond (white chocolate with tequila) and The Dude (white or milk chocolate with bourbon) depending on mom’s favorite spirit—or silver screen heartthrob.
This sleek bar tool set will have mom mixing cocktails like a pro in no time. The stainless steel spoon, jigger, muddler and Julep strainer are crafted with a polished gold finish to make them both durable and ridiculously good looking.
If your mom is a study in minimalism, she’ll love these modern coasters, which are hand-painted by designer Charlotte Cannon in her Baltimore studio. The wooden coasters are finished with gold leaf for a gilded look that’s sure to catch attention at every gathering. Choose from sets of pink, black or white.
Homemade Boozy Marmalade (priceless)
You may be grown, but we guarantee mom still has the Mother’s Day card you made for her in third grade. And we bet that she still loves homemade gifts, so you should surprise her with an easy-to-make, deliciously addicting boozy marmalade. Choose from cocktail-inspired flavors like Negroni, Whiskey Sour or Bacon, Onion & Tequila.
