Have you been invited to a stock-the-bar party and don’t know what to bring with you? You leave that to us. We, at GiftinGlory, have listed out some great gift ideas for the party. All you need to do is go through our suggestions and decide.
Did You Know?
In a recently emerging trend, the guests bring 2 bottles of alcohol―one for consumption at the party, and one for stocking the couple’s bar.
People getting married soon, about to host a shower for friends getting married soon, and anyone else out there about to be connected to a wedding in any way (soon)…listen up, there may be several new themes that people adopt when it comes to a wedding party, but there won’t be anything quite like a ‘stock-the-bar’ party. Seriously. If you like your alcohol, and you think that it is a prerequisite when it comes to wedding celebrations, you’re gonna love this theme. A stock-the-bar party is hosted so that you as guests help the soon-to-be hitched couple stock up their bar. The theme is becoming quite popular these days given that people are loving the fact that they don’t have to go into the whole shindy of thinking up of the perfect gift to give, and their choice is made relatively simple for them.
If you’ve been invited to such a party, we suggest you go through this GiftinGlory article that highlights the basics of what to get for a stock-the-bar party. Let’s help you make some uber cool choices.
Best Gifts for a Stock-the-bar Party
In keeping with this theme’s most common calling, guests bring with them alcohol of some sort, and while that is always a celebrated choice, it is not the only thing that you can take to this party. What else, then? Make your choice from among these awesome gift ideas.
Yes, obviously we are starting off the list with this one. In its purest form, bringing alcohol to the party is what the party is all about. So make your choices, people, the alcohol world is stacked with choices. There’s wine and brandy and bourbon and vodka and tequila and rum, and I could go on and on. The most super thing about this gift is that you can choose the kind of alcohol based on your budget.
And no, no one’s going to judge you for not pulling out a super-expensive bottle, no one has the time for that, everyone will be too ‘high’ to bother.
What will they serve their alcohol in? Glasses, of course. So here’s something that you can choose with absolute ease. Again, there are all those choices waiting to be made… the simple glassware to the crystal affair, the plain to the witty and the funny. That’s right, the witty and funny are relatively new entrants to the alcohol world and aren’t we just glad they came about?
Trendy Bar Stools
What’s the fun in bringing alcohol to the party when everyone else will be doing the same? If you’re trying to foray away from the tried and tested, here’s a great idea that you can consider―bring them a bar stool. It’s not something that people will easily think of picking up, and again, there is a lot of variety up for grabs; you can go for a simple wooden stool or something a little more done up, like something in wrought iron that comes with a back and cushions.
We would recommend, however, that before you decide to buy this particular gift, you are well aware of their home decor. Don’t give them something that stands out like a sore thumb that they just can’t use.
Stylish Bar Accessories
And then there is a crazy long list of bar accessories that you can choose from. Think fancy napkins, bottle openers, set of stirring spoons and swizzle sticks, personalized coasters, muddlers, and wine charms. Don’t want to give them just one? Give them a gift basket stuffed with all these goodies then … why not?
Sleek and Shiny Cocktail Shakers
Who doesn’t want a cool cocktail shaker for their bar? Get them a metal one. A simple metal flask or something a little more fancy―we’re thinking, a monogrammed shaker with the couple’s initials on it. What a beauty this. Or maybe, you pick from the colored choices? What fun.
There is a whole lot of awesome options among the different appliances available as well. If the budget permits, how about a mini refrigerator that can be placed behind the counter? And if the budget does not permit such extravagant buys, you can always go in for blenders or ice makers.
Fab Side Tables
Another great choice as a gift is a side table―a convenient piece of furniture to place your drink on while you’re taking a break from drinking. But remember, choose a side table or something similar if, and only if, you know the couple-to-be’s home decor. And again, there are a myriad choices offered when you want to choose a side table―wooden, carved, metal, etc.
So what’s it to be then? The alcohol or the bar stool or the mini fridge, or one of the other choices discussed above? Confusing, isn’t it? We know, we know. We’ll leave you to it then. And we’re sure you’ll make it a great one.
