November is here and with it comes the official start of the holiday entertaining season. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner and it’s around this time of year that all of the festive gatherings start to dominate our calendars.  

Sinkology launched its first-ever line of copper bar accessories earlier this year (I used these great pieces in an outdoor mini bar this summer). These accessories are affordable, beautifully crafted and perfect for entertaining all year round. Another thing I’m planning to use them for? My holiday gift-giving!

Whether it’s for a party hostess, my kids’ teachers or the mail carrier, I always need ideas for fun and easy gifts to give throughout the holiday season. Check out how I used the Sinkology bar accessories to create perfectly giftable packages for everyone on your list!

Stocking Stuffers for Grown-Ups

The copper shot glasses are the perfect size for stocking stuffers. You can buy them in sets of two or four and break them up however you like. I wrapped two together with a mini bottle of liquor and a holiday drink recipe. I placed them on a marble coaster to add some stability to the package. Fun and festive!

The Go-To Gift

From bosses to bus drivers and teachers, hostesses and grab bags, this gift will fit the bill for all. Take a copper mug (they come in two styles!) and fill it with fun drink accompaniments and décor. I filled one of my mugs with a hot chocolate pack, chocolate-covered spoon and a cute Christmas ornament. A warm and welcoming gift that’s perfect for warding off the winter chill. For a different spin on this arrangement, I packaged the mug with a mini liquor bottle, a Moscow Mule mix and a recipe for a Holiday Moscow Mule. You could also package two mugs together with various fillings. Yum!

Bucket of Fun

For occasions where you’re looking for a more substantial gift – maybe for a housewarming or newlyweds – try Sinkology’s copper ice bucket.   Put some tissue paper or a holiday dish towel in the bottom and add a bottle of wine/champagne, a couple of glasses and a festive bow. I also added a silvery mini tree for an even bigger dose of holiday magic. Ta da! A gift that is both fun and functional…trust me when I say that the recipients of your gift will be using their ice bucket at every party they have. It’s great for formal and informal gatherings!
