It’s hard to be a vodka lover. While whiskey fiends and gin fans are gifted with crystal decanters and exotic bottles, vodka lovers are left out in the cold with nothing but their trusted bottle of Ketel or Goose to comfort them. This year, treat the vodka lover in your life right and buy them something they’ll love. From a Bloody Mary set to the perfect Moscow Mule mugs, these gifts will keep on giving long after the last sip.
