Last minute Christmas presents

By Lia Sanders on 23/12/14 3:00 PM

No matter how organised you are, in the run up to Christmas there will always be someone that you have forgotten to buy a gift for. While alcohol is a good stand-by in these situations, there are opportunities to be a little more original.

A film with drinks

As we saw yesterday, pairing a film with appropriate drinks adds a dash of class. The combination of an appropriate DVD and a bottle of something strong suggests a little more thought has gone into your present buying. This can be as simple as Casino Royale with a bottle of Gordon’s Gin for making Vesper martinis or a beautiful bottle of Snow Queen vodka and Frozen for the grown-up girl who still wants to be a princess.

Hot toddy Set

Although no one is going to turn up their nose at a Glenmorangie Signet Whisky, if your budget does not stretch quite that far, a hot toddy set is a heart-(and stomach-)warming alternative. A bottle of whisky packaged with a small pot of honey, cloves, cinnamon sticks and a lemon together with a heatproof mug gives your giftee all they need for this winter warmer drink.
