I've got a team of 8 to buy for. Budget is about £20 per person. Would you prefer a bottle of Moet (which is normally £35, but has £10 off in Sainsburys and they're currently doing of 25% off if you buy six or more, so could get for within budget); or a gift card (is there anywhere doing good deals on gift vouchers?!); or something else??

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Gift card for amazon

Do they enjoy having a drink? If you know they do, then I'd go for the champagne as it's such a bargain. I often keep gift cards and forget I've got them.

Moet. A gift card means trying to find something that you want from a particular shop that is either £20 or just over.

Go for the Moët no comparison

Champagne. It's festive and not something I'd buy myself. Having said that, not everyone likes it - DH for example would rather have a beergrin

I'd love the Moët. And if I didn't it would be a great gift for someone I knew.

Champagne more thoughtful than a voucher I think? Like you've put thought into it.

Moet. If they don't use it I'd had instant regift value anyway. I hate gift cards!

*it has instant

Champagne. No contest. Even if you don’t drink much you would likely have some event round Christmas or New year when you could share a bottle of fizz.

Id probs prefer a cheaper bottle or a spirit and some posh chocs. Hotel chocolat?

It seems such a luxury to get a gift like this. I think it would go down very well.
If they aren't big drinkers they could always regift as its such a good gift.

Thanks for the responses. I've always felt buying booze is such an impersonal present - was hoping Moet would feel like a bit of a 'treat' and sounds like it would be.

There's one Muslim guy in the team, so I'll probably buy an Amazon giftcard for him.

I hated getting gift cards from work, never used them and they were ALWAYS wasted money, I didn't live close to the centre it was connected to and if I was there never thought of the gift card. The Moet would be met with big smile though 😀

Moët is always the correct answer.

What to buy colleagues? Moët.
What to do this weekend? Moët.
What's the weather like? Moët.

I love my champagne and Moët would go down very well!

snowgirl1 Sun 27-Nov-16 19:11:01

Moet is always the correct answer grin grin grin

A gift card! I rarely drink and when I do only drink spirits

Why not give them a choice?

CakeNinja Sun 27-Nov-16 19:28:42

id prefer a box of hotel chocolat personally, or a gift card. Moet to me is the a horrible champagne! But I'm clearly in the minority, and it's easy to regift.
I'll be getting an impersonal Christmas card from my boss though, so I'd take the champagne over that!

Herecomedanotherone Sun 27-Nov-16 19:31:14

Amazon Gift Card please. I rarely drink, never champagne and I would never give just a bottle of wine, champagne or otherwise as a gift. I'd feel a bit miffed that I'd been given what I perceive as an expensive gift that I couldn't use. I'd actually rather have nothing.

GlacindaTheTroll Sun 27-Nov-16 19:32:35

Booze is good - but only for those who you know drink alcohol.

Which may or may not fit with someone's religion, because level of observance can vary. And if course abstention may be nothing to do with religion anyhow (health, addiction/recovery (self or close family), or just don't like it much).

But very welcome for those who do!

PunkAssMoFo Sun 27-Nov-16 19:39:25

£10 amazon voucher and a decent bottle of prosecco would be the best of both worlds.

patchesmcp Sun 27-Nov-16 19:55:33

Gift card, ideally Amazon. Champagne would be wasted on me, as would most booze.

I think it's nice that your getting your team something by the way.
