Not sure where you're located but today in the DC area where I am, it's a cold, rainy, and all-around miserable day outside. The kind that makes you wish you wore cuter jammies to bed so you could snap your morning Instagram pic without ever leaving the covers. The kind that makes a Monday feel exactly like, well, a Monday. I originally had a different topic planned for today but it's time to shake things up a bit. It's time to discuss cocktail-inspired welcome gifts.
While it's always a very nice touch, you don't necessarily have to provide alcohol in the actual gift to get your guests in the mood to celebrate. Here are some cute ideas to welcome your guests to town and hint at the party that awaits them.
1. Sugarfina Tasting Box: Cocktail Hour Gummies
This adorable box includes tastings of Beverly Hills-based Sugarfina's booze-inspired candies including Absinthe Cordials, Champage Bubbles, Cuba Libre, Champagne Gummy Bears, Martini Olive Almonds, Maple Bourbon Caramels, Pale Ale Pints and Single Malt Scotch Cordials.
Includes a 1oz tasting of each candy, individually packaged & labeled (8oz total in each box). Perfect to include in your welcome bag or box. Or, you could always welcome your guests with this box on its own along with a customizable gift tag.
$25 per box
