Christmas is an amazing time of year. The decorations come out, families get together from all over the world, and traditions are made and created. It’s a time when the weather gets cold and we all get to get together and be with our loved ones and reflect on the past year.
It’s a very first-world problem to complain about Christmas, but there is an aspect of it that can be stressful. The gift-giving aspect comes incredibly naturally to some, and the polar opposite to others. That, along with everyone’s varying budget can cause some people to worry about upsetting people with their present giving.
Here at CWS, we love to think that people actually care about the sentiment. We’ve come up with some fantastic options to bring either as a gift or as a gesture when going to someone’s house for Christmas. So, with all this being said, we have compiled this list of the best alcohol Christmas gifts. Now you don’t have to come up with any alcohol Christmas gift ideas!
Best Alcohol Gifts For Christmas

Christmas is a truly indulgent time. Lots of booze and food, not to mention all the desserts and chocolate!

Slrrrp Shots Cinnamon Whiskey
One of our best alcohol Christmas gift ideas is this unique whiskey product. This is the world’s first plant-based whiskey gelatin shot!

CWS Exclusive Ice Sphere
If you’ve got a liquor fanatic in the family then we have one of the perfect alcohol Christmas gift ideas for you! This ice sphere creates a large, spherical ice shape that looks great and has practicality behind it. By having less surface area than a cube, this sphere dilutes less quickly into liquor. Therefore it cools without distorting the flavor too quickly.

With their signature blanco, reposado, and añejo blends bottled in these three iconic bottles, this is a shelf-worthy gift.
