Christmas is right around the corner. There are trees to be decorated with baubles and tinsel, cookies to be baked and presents to buy.
There is something lovely about buying gifts for your friends and relatives, especially when you know what they like and you don’t have to do too much guessing. If the people you hold nearest and dearest to you are gin lovers, then you are in luck.
Today, we are going to be sharing some of the ultimate Christmas themed gifts for gin lovers with you, as well as a handful of our favourite offerings from the past year.
In this article, we are going to be delving into stocking fillers, decorations and seasonal goods, but no article of this type would be complete without a list of amazing Christmas presents. We would love for Santa to leave some of these beneath our trees, maybe your favourite gin lover would too.
Monkey 47 Sloe Gin
Over the past year, we have had the opportunity to try many delightful and memorable gins, but none have left quite the impression that Monkey 47 Sloe Gin has. This particular sloe gin encapsulates British traditions and infuses them with some of the mysterious botanicals that can be found growing in the Black Forest.
Naturally, the sloe berries present in this gin are handpicked sloe berries that grow wild in the region surrounding the distillery. If you are looking to really leave a lasting impression with your Christmas gift, then this is how you do it.
Monkey 47 Sloe Gin can be purchased for £34.99 from Masters Of Malt by clicking here.
Tarquin’s Figgy Pudding Gin
Perfectly complementing the spirit of Christmas, Tarquin’s Limited Edition Figgy Pudding Gin will be a welcome addition at any Christmas Day feast. Just as you would expect from a gin of this nature, this one contains a charming infusion of festive spices and subtle zest, as well as dried figs and cherry wood chips that have been generously soaked in brandy.
We would highly recommend buying this one for both your nearest and dearest and for yourself, as it will offer you the warmth that you need to get you through the cold, dark nights of winter.

The Great British Gin Tasting Set has been carefully curated to bring you the best of the British Isles, with plenty of famous offerings waiting to be found within.
In your box, you will be able to find 5cl bottles of Aber Falls Small Batch Welsh Dry Gin, Boe Scottish Gin, Edinburgh Gin, Manchester Signature Gin, Mason’s Dry Yorkshire Gin Peppered Pear Special Edition, Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin, Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Tarquin’s Handcrafted Cornish Dry Gin.

When you are trying to buy a unique and alcohol-themed gift, it can start to get a little bit difficult. If the person you are buying for also enjoys dabbling in gardening, then you might want to think about getting them a Gin Botanical Cocktail Gardening Kit.
This particular kit can be used to grow a number of different things, including basil, rosemary and thyme. It also contains a special cocktail recipe book and two delicious cocktail infusion bags that can be used immediately, your friend will just have to add gin. If they love gin as much as we do, then they probably have some of that stashed away somewhere.

‘Gin Night In’ Letterbox Gift
Sometimes buying gin-themed gifts can be difficult if they need to be shipped directly to the person who is receiving them. No one wants to run the risk of someone not being available to sign for their parcel. Luckily, the ‘Gin Night In’ Letterbox Gift has been carefully designed to fit neatly through most letterboxes.
When your gift arrives, you might want to make sure that it says that it cannot be opened until Christmas Day. Having said that, your friend might not be able to resist the temptation. Inside, it contains some Gin & Tonic Blonde Chocolate, a premium British gin from Silent Pool, some Himalayan Bath Salts, a Relaxation Candle from The Natural Candle Company and some Moisturising Bath Truffles from Sheffield Skincare.
