The Last-Minute Present Cocktail Fans Will Love

If there’s a silver lining to 2020, it has to be the renaissance of the early evening cocktail. Alcohol gifting service Gifty was launched during lockdown 2.0, with the aim of making staying in feel like going out. Whether you’re looking to enhance a night in, cheer up a friend or find a personalised present for a loved one this Christmas, these premium cocktail gift sets are the answer. To find out more – and get 10% off your first order – read on…


Gifty is a small, independent business that was formed during the second lockdown and launched just this month. Inspired by the sense of occasion that surrounds the first cocktail of the evening, Gifty sells a range of customisable, drinkable gift experiences – from dirty martinis to alcoholic hot chocolates complete with toasted marshmallows.

Bored of generic gift boxes and naff personalised cards, or disappointed in gifts lacking the effort and attention of a handpicked present? Gifty also aims to combine the thoughtfulness of a carefully chosen gift with the convenience of online shopping. Each luxe alcohol and cocktail gift set is personalised for the recipient and comes beautifully wrapped – perfect for anyone who tends to leave their Christmas shopping to the last minute.

Each luxe alcohol and cocktail gift set is personalised and comes beautifully wrapped.

Interested? Here’s how it works…

1. Select your gift
The company currently offers two gifting options: a curated selection of winning combinations – think martinis with olives and rhubarb gin with pink glass straws – and a bespoke option, where customers can build the perfect present from an excellent line-up of spirits and accessories. Gifty’s curated selections are all about enhancing the occasion – it’s not just about giving a bottle of booze, it’s about creating the perfect evening in. Meanwhile, its bespoke gifts are all about tailoring your present to perfection – you’ll be able to choose a bottle of alcohol, plus one or two other items from Gifty’s product list, such as cocktail-making items, ingredients, snacks and games. 

2. Choose your occasion
Whether you're sending a Christmas gift or just fancy treating someone you love, there’s a gift for every occasion. Once you’ve chosen your present, it will be beautifully gift wrapped and you’ll be given the chance to write a message on one of the brand’s personalised cards. 

3. Delivery
When your order has been dispatched, you’ll be sent a message with all the tracking information you need. Your package will typically be delivered in two-three days.
