Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list is what makes the holidays so special. That's why we partnered with
Pier 1 Imports for this post.
It's fun to get creative when selecting and crafting holiday gifts for those who love a good drink. Instead of just handing over a basic bottle of wine, we have five different ways to celebrate the season with the cocktail-lover on your list. All of these ideas are simple to pull together and can be personalized to really fit your loved one's favorite drinks.
For your friend who loves to kick back with a good glass of wine, fill a cozy
woven basket with a faux-fox-fur table runner, stainless steel wine goblets (that are so chic!), a rustic wine stopper, and a beer bottle opener for the times they might want something bubbly. Tuck in sparkling holiday cards and a bottle of cassis to make kir cocktails.

The Specialty-Cocktail Sipper
If you have a friend who's always ordering the most unique drink on the menu, make her holiday sparkle with an
ice bucket, which will keep a specialty bottle of vodka chilled, and stemless martini glasses. I love how these have a touch of red at the bases, that really pop thanks to glimmer lights. Line the ice bucket with a set of four sparkling table napkins that add a touch of bling to any table. Add a cute, fuzzy owl ornament to finish the gift along with a jingling bell to the bottle.

The Hostess With the Mostest
We all have that friend who throws the best parties, so it makes sense to add to her holiday supplies. Start with a silver
faux-croc serving tray, which actually works year-round, and fill it with adorably festive items, like a sparkling snowman ornament. Tuck in jolly cocktail napkins, which you can never have too many of, and a cute tea towel. Finish the tray with a bottle of wine topped with a faux-fur wine scarf , a wine aerator, and a glitter sphere.

The Person Who Likes Everything
You can also wrap a bottle of wine, craft beer, or a specialty liquor with
festive paper and adorn the present with fun wine-charm sets, or wrap a bottle with ribbon and attach a unique antler ornament. Using a colorful napkin held in place with a jingle bell napkin ring is also really cute. And you can wrap the rest of the napkins and rings, along with a set of placemats or shimmering ball decorations, for a unique hostess gift.

The Trendy Drink Mixer
It seems there's always a new trendy drink getting everyone's attention, and this friend knows exactly what it is. Give her a set of
moscow mule cocktail mugs and marble-wood coasters. Fold in vibrant plaid napkins and a few bottles of ginger ale or beer for mixing the classic drink.
