Other than gin.....!

Looking for ideas for my gin loving sister in law, budget of £20ish

Some nice gin glasses

It might look strange buying gin accessories but no gin!

If you want to buy a gin (I know you said other than gin) then I suggest Nofolk Gin. It’s rather special.

I would love it as a gift.

this fevertree set. You could take it out of the packaging and something more fancy. Then add a book/glass etc.

My brother bought me stuff to go in gin. Cardamom, pink peppercorns, that sort of thing.

Gin baubles?

ignores the fact that you said other than gin

I went to Wagamama the other evening and they jazz their gin up with pink peppercorns and stuff, it was really nice to try something different..... and def some nice glasses, you can never have too many of those.

Balloon glasses.

Lovely mixers? You can get cherry falvoured tonic, rose lemonade.

A set with gin shimmer 😍

Gin stones? They are whisky stones really but I've just googled and they do exist labelled Gin Stones. Little square stones you put in your freezer then use to keep your gin/whisky cold without diluting it.

Yes, yes, yes to the popaball! Fab glitter and fruit balls! They were actually cheaper in Lakeland than amazon the other week! Know amazon prices can fluctuate.

Some really nice tonics, I like the hibiscus one, basil is lovely too

TarquinGyrfalcon Sat 11-Nov-17 19:54:26

Spanish Gin Glasses - love mine, they are huge meaning I can drink more gin

GarlicBreadItsTheFuture Sat 11-Nov-17 19:56:04

Gin balloons (glasses)

Charbonnel et Walker gin truffles or Prestat also do them

pinkblink Sat 11-Nov-17 19:56:25

Good to know jock, thank you

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Sat 11-Nov-17 19:58:58

You can never have enough gin! (the new Tanquery Rampur is on special at £20 in Asda atm)
Copa glasses are the only way to drink gin (the Spanish glasses)
Please not a book on gin. I want to drink unusual gins, not read about them.
I do like candles though so could go with a g & t candle.

How about a personalised gin/balloon/Spanish glass?

Maybe a tour around a local still to see how it’s made?

MaidenMotherCrone Sat 11-Nov-17 20:02:14

If you can bake I'd love 6 gin and tonic cupcakes, beautifully decorated with a big swirl of gin frosting in lovely cases. I'd really like them in a pretty box.

Just the thought of sitting in my pyjamas on Christmas night and scoffing the lot makes me want them even more.

Recipe and decorating ideas are online.

Gin infusion set at Wilkos?

Floods123 Sat 11-Nov-17 20:05:17

More gin.

Sandsnake Sat 11-Nov-17 20:08:32

Something a bit different perhaps like this silentpooldistillers.com/product/albury-limited-release-strawberry-gin-cordial/

Depends on how much your budget is! Eden Mill do a fabulous '12 Gins of Christmas' set! DH bought me one last year (they develop new Gins every year)
