Well, it’s winter; a season so chilly us hardworking folk are practically forced to bask in the warm, glowing warming glow of our family, friends, and the many gifts they’ll be exchanging with you.
We believe in gifts that make a lasting impression on a person’s brain along with their mouth. Case in point: what would you rather receive as a gift? A Phantasm-infused IPA so juicy it’ll make you weep? Or another pair of touchscreen gloves? Thought so.
Check out some of this year’s best whiskey, wine, beer, and fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-liqueur from your buddies at The Stir.

These stackable gold-rimmed Meridian Tumblers add a dash of style and substance to the lucky spirit that’s poured inside this lead-free crystal. We recommend something strong and brown like this Johnnie Walker Double Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky on the rocks or chilled by a giant sphere. (IYKYK.)
I mean come on; how cute is this thing? Fact: I have received no less than two dozen complimentary cocktail shakers in my life and none of them hold a candle to this lil’ guy. I would drink sludge of out this thing if it meant I could show it off to my friends in a holiday setting.
