Holiday shopping can be stressful. Holiday shopping for your parents and your in-laws can be beyond stressful. They have more experience and more refined tastes, and they absolutely must be impressed.
Enter these 12 gifts. Whether the parental figures in your life favor brown spirits, Champagne, or dinner parties, these presents are sure to leave everyone in awe.
Mid-Century Modern Gold Swizzle Sticks
The only tool you need to drink a simple two-ingredient mixed drink with class. Regardless of whether your parents or in-laws are whiskey and Coke people, Gin and Tonic fans, or full-on Rum Swizzle people, they’ll need something to stir their drinks with. That’s where these irresistible swizzle sticks come in handy.
Drink Rocks Geometric Shapes
Using ice in your whiskey, even large spheres of ice, can be a problem because it dilutes it all down. Whiskey stones, on the other hand, bring a drink to just the right temperature without all the water. These geometric whiskey stones are functional, plus look as good in your glass as they do outside your glass.
Stirred Cocktail Set
Some cocktails were never meant to be shaken, and the mature, knowledgeable cocktail enthusiast knows this. The stirred cocktail set allows your parents to make the perfect Martini, Manhattan, and Negroni every time.
Mid-Century Modern Gold & Wood Bottle Opener
This gold and wood bottle opener is the classiest way to open a beer you’ve ever seen. Don’t leave your parents and in-laws stuck using the tacky cheap bottle opener off a keychain.
Decanter Aeration Ball
Decanting wine is an art, and the decanter aeration ball makes that art accessible to everyone. The tin removes the harsh bitterness from the alcohol while making the wine pour out in a beautiful stream. Prepare your parents for a smoother, mellower drink that looks as good as it tastes.
Liquor Perfection Decanter Stick
You don’t need a large decanter for all of the decanter effects. The tried-and-tested decanter stick from the Woo Collective lets you take the power of decanting with you. It’s the perfect gift for the whiskey-loving parent who is always on the go.
Gold-Rimmed Crystal Martini Glass Set

The Scotsman Cut-Glass Whiskey Decanter
Let your parents and in-laws ditch the bottle and start serving their prized whiskey in this cut-glass decanter. It’s the same whiskey, just elevated.
The Shiraz Decanter
Wine decanters can get monotonous. With your help, that doesn’t have to be the case for your parents and in-laws. The Shiraz Decanter makes a statement by being able to stand up or lie on its side for maximum aeration.
Mid-Century Modern Gold Metal Wine Rack
Few things make people stop and stare like this geometric wine rack. It’s shimmering gold, can hold six bottles, and is light and unobtrusive. It’s the perfect addition to any table or countertop and will impress even the hardest-to-please in-laws.

The Copper Champagne Bucket
You’re probably aware that the people who raised you and your significant other throw much more refined dinner parties than you do. What they’re missing (probably) is this crowd-stopping copper Champagne bucket, perfect for keeping every bottle at just the right temperature.
