Got a big day on the horizon? We’ve rounded up the best wedding gifts for cocktail lovers.
After a year of cancelled ceremonies and rearranged receptions, wedding season is finally back on the cards. But don’t worry if you’re a little bit out of practice – we’re on hand to help. To get you ready, we’ve rounded up some of our top wedding gift ideas. Spoiler – they’re all pre-mixed cocktails.
Why pre-mixed cocktails?
Put down the vase. Step away from the tablecloth. A toaster might be an easy option, but give your loved-up couple a box of ready-to-drink cocktails, and you’re helping them make precious memories – cocktail parties with friends, cosy movie nights at home, or evening drinks in the garden. That’s a pretty great gift, and undoubtedly better than toast.
So here we have it – our top cocktail wedding gifts for 2021.
Make a big impression
Let’s start with the big one. If you’re buying for a very special couple, The Classics cocktail bundle is a strong choice. We’ve chosen four favourite cocktails to make up this sophisticated collection – Daiquiri, Gimlet, Old Fashioned, and Negroni. When you rock up with this selection box of 12 or 24 pre-mixed cocktails, you’re no doubt going to get the “Best Guest” crown (which we wish was a real thing).
Wild card: The BBQ Bundle (for couples who love being outside)
For gin lovers
Gin is having a moment, and it’s not going anywhere yet. If you’re buying a wedding gift for gin lovers, you can’t go wrong with Gin the Mood, our gin-centric SixMix box. This carefully curated collection features six cocktails made up of Bramble, Aviation, and English Garden – three floral, fragrant tipples perfect for an outdoor cocktail party, or a quiet night in.
It’s hard to choose just one gin cocktail, but we’d be pretty happy with a box of Rhubarb Gin. This sweet and fruity cocktail is a summertime treat, packed with tart rhubarb and zesty Sicilian lemon flavours. Wrap them up for the gift table, or send a cocktail gift to the happy couple.
Wild card: Gimlet (for those channeling retro vibes)
Cocktails of the Caribbean
Is there a delayed Caribbean honeymoon on the cards? Or perhaps they’ve swapped a destination wedding for the UK’s sandy shores? Wrap them up a box of Just Rum With It, our SixMix cocktail collection for rum lovers, and give them a taste of the Caribbean. They might not be on a tropical beach just yet, but who cares when you’re spending your evenings sipping a Mai Tai, Classic Mojito, or Strawberry Daiquiri?
If your couple’s heart is in Havana, bring Cuba to them with a box of Blood Orange Mojitos. Like all our single flavour boxes, these pre-mixed cocktails come in packs of 4, 8, or 12.
Wild card: Pink Margarita (for newlyweds dreaming of a honeymoon in Mexico)
An elegant wedding gift
If there’s ever a time for being fancy, it’s a wedding (but also anytime you like, we won’t judge). You can’t get much fancier than a cocktail that sparkles, so may we introduce you to the Gold Lychee Martini. This sweet, perfumed lychee and vodka cocktail is an absolute show-stopper, with 23 carat gold leaf suspended in the drink.
Wild card: Espresso Martini (for energy-depleted wedding planners)
Not sure whether your hosts are rum, vodka, or gin kind of people? Want to let them choose their own cocktail gift? You’re in luck! You can buy Boxtails gift cards for £10, £25, £50, or £100, and send them digitally as quickly as you like. So, if you’re reading this on the morning of the wedding, you’ve still got time.
Now all that’s left to do is prepare to be the best wedding guest on the scene, and enjoy the party. Cheers!
