12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!)

Here are 12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) or even just things you can buy yourself to celebrate the Christmas spirit!

Gin Baubles

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

A collection of 6 Christmas Tree Baubles, containing 3 different delicious gin concoctions.  To be honest I think these should be advent gifts though. So in that way I guess you would need 4 boxes to ensure that you’d have enough – for one every day of advent!

The Lakes Gin Filled Baubles Gift Set £34.99

Conker Spirit Dorset Gin

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

You can’t have a Gin Gift Guide without including some different types of Gin can you! This Conker Spirit Dorset Dry Gin is according to the info brazenly refreshing and deftly smooth, crafted to stand up on its own, poured and adored over ice.  It tells you to mix at your pleasure, but suggests it can hold its own!   Having sampled it, in the interest of research for you, I would suggest that it is definitely easy to drink on it’s own but also very nice with some Fentimans tonic!

Conker Spirit Dorset Dry Gin, RRP £35.95 (70cl) and is available to buy at Fortnum & Mason, independent stockists and from conkerspirit.co.uk

Hurrah for Gin Books

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

The original book Hurrah for Gin: A book for perfectly imperfect parents was a firm favourite last Christmas and this year there is a new book to buy Hurrah for Gin: The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams (Aged 2 ¼)

Gin O’Clock

Gin & Tonic Infusion Kit

The set includes 4 carefully selected ingredients, tasting notes, gin pairing ideas and a cocktail spoon. I’m going to be using this at Christmas to add to our gin. The kit also comes with a guide to making the perfect Spanish ‘Gin Tonica’.

The kit from Sous Chef is £17.50

Lakes Elderflower Gin Liquor

It can be drank neat over ice, but I like mine to liven up a prosecco! Maybe with the popaball bubbles below!

It’s £15 for a small 20cl bottle

 

Popaball Bubbles and Shimmer for Gin

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

We had the Popaball Bubbles last year for Prosecco but this blue pearl shimmer for gin look lots of fun!

£7.49 so a great stocking filler!

Gordon Castle Gin12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

Gordon Castle Gin is an award winning gin to rival all boutique gins. This is a rare find- a small-batch, super-premium, and unusual gin to add to your gin collection, sold in beautiful 70cl bottles.  It has an incredibly aromatic taste and the aromas come from a hand harvested Victorian walled garden nestled deep in the Scottish Highlands. They also offer an in-house engraving service from just £10 – ideal for making a gift extra special!

You can order here for £34,99.

White Chocolate & Lavender Gin Soaked Raisins

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

I picked these up at a local Christmas fair last week and they are divine. In fact I bought quite a selection of the different chocolates as stocking fillers. These raisins are soaked in Lavender Gin for a minimum of three days, prior to being coated in white chocolate. Totally Delicious.

£5.99

Blackberries with London Dry Gin12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

Opies Blackberries with Gin: Serve with Christmas cocktails such as Blackberry Bramble or Blackberry Basil Mojito. Serve with a stack of pancakes and fresh cream (or eat them straight from the jar!).Yum Yum Yum!

Pinkster Gin

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

One of my favourite gins. Add raspberries to this and possibly serve with Fentimans Grapefruit Tonic and I think you have a pretty special tipple!

At £34.99 it isn’t the most expensive gin either and to make it extra special why not add some Boozy Berries too!

Buttermilk Cornish Gin Fudge

2 Christmas Gift Ideas for Gin Loving Mothers (or Fathers!) www.minitravellers.co.uk

An all-butter crumbly Cornish Gin fudge with Cornish Tarquin’s Gin. The gin-infused fudge is one of Buttermilk’s best-sellers and has won gold in the 2017 Taste of the West Awards and one star in the 2017 Great Taste Awards.
  You get a hint of gin at the end but would be better eaten with a gin and tonic for full effect I’d say.

It’s a nice stocking filler at £3.99
