‘Tis the season for potlucks, Christmas movies and yes, holiday parties. And while we’re all excited to celebrate the season, if you’re not playing host, finding the best gift to thank your bestie for all her hard work can be daunting. Sure, a bottle of wine is a no-fail go-to, but it’s also super expected. So we rounded up a bottle of booze for every type of hostess. After all, is it really a party without a cocktail?
For the Classy AF Hostess
Prairie Organic Gin ($20): For the hostess that is a sophisticated drinker and loves everything organic, this refreshing herbal blend is made with time and care, just like the meal she’s about to serve. With a hint of juniper and a delicate finish, this is gin that’s light, fresh and perfect for sipping solo or using to make a frosty fizz or martini.
For the Hostess with the Mostest
Centinela Tequila ($35): We all have one — the friend who loves the finer things in life. And now, that girl can add a superior quality tequila to her collection. Centinela is 100-percent blue agave tequila made with artisanal methods since 1904, AKA she can’t NOT be impressed. Also, it doesn’t hurt if your hostess enjoys gourmet cocktails paired with Mexican dishes. Because don’t we all? (Photo via Centinela)
For the Hostess Who Likes to Party
UV Vodka Sriracha ($13): No party is complete without someone to spice things up. And if your hostess loves to offer out-of-the-box cocktails, UV Sriracha is the perfect bottle to challenge her tastebuds. Made with all-natural flavors, it’s spicy, peppery and, of course, super tasty. Hot, but not too hot, it adds just the right amount of kick to your cocktail — or post-holiday-party Bloody Marys.
For the Cool Girl Hostess
Local Flavor Rosé ($19): We know what you’re thinking. Rosé is a summer drink, so bringing it to a party when temperatures require a jacket might seem counterintuitive. But fear not — we’ve found the rosé that defies all seasons. It’s light and refreshing and can be a great alternative to the full-bodied wines that are typical during the winter months. Bonus: When you purchase a bottle, a donation is made to Venice Arts, a non-profit that provides low-income youth with access to art programs.
For the Hipster Hostess
Two Stars Bourbon ($30): We all want to be this girl — the one who can seamlessly sip bourbon straight from a ball glass with nothing but an ice cube to accompany it. If your hostess knows high-quality when she sees it, this small-batch Kentucky bourbon is a no brainer. The woody flavors finish warm so the bottle you gift her should have no problem getting her through the winter. (Photo via Total Wine)
