The time has come again and you're stuck trying to figure out what gift to get the "person who has everything" or instead of giving the same ol', same ol' you want to finally give a gift that makes someone say "WOW!". Look no further.
You've stumbled upon these cool custom-made wine and liquor barrels and would either love to get one for someone else, or, and yes- be selfish, you want one for yourself! Here are the top ten occasions that are perfect to get or give one of these amazing barrels.
1. Wedding Gift
Looking for a cool group gift to give to your favorite couple on their wedding day? Get a few couples to chip in and this wedding gift is a no-brainer. Get it customized with their initials or any other personal touch you may be able to come up with.
2. Wedding gift for your spouse-to-be
Necklace, earrings, cuff links... those are all thoughtful, but what about a unique barrel you got customized for the wine lover or whiskey aficionado you're about to vow to spend the rest of your life with? Get your wedding date and initials etched into the top and you'll have a conversation piece in your house at your 10th anniversary party, 25th anniversary party, 50th anniversary party... you get the point.
3. Wedding Anniversary Gift
While we're on the topic, wouldn't you love this for an anniversary present? You're already married so your guests stuck to your registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond and you went with a traditional gift on your wedding day, but don't worry, you haven't missed your chance. This is a great wedding anniversary gift to give or receive. You could even give it to each other- the hybrid, wine & liquor cabinet is the perfect option.
4. New Home
Give your friends or family something to display during their housewarming party and you'll be the talk of the town for being such an amazing gift giver. Since everyone else will just bring a typical new house gift and bottle of wine, why not give them a barrel made into a wine holder so they have somewhere to put it. Who knows, maybe they'll return the favor during another occasion.
Have a loved one dreading their journey "over the hill" or avoiding the big 5-0? You have the chance to make this the best birthday for them EVER! All you'll have to get them for any birthday after is another bottle to add to their stock. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving.
6. Christmas, Chanukkah, Kwanza, whatever holiday it is you celebrate!
Forget the car in the driveway with a big red bow on it, it's only happens in commercials. Now a barrel made into a custom liquor cabinet filled with your favorite beverage- that's what I'm talking about. Believe me, Santa agrees.
Books and tests and reports... oh my! Whether you have a college graduate heading out to the real world for the first time or you know someone that went back to school to further their career they deserve a rewarding present for all of their hard work.
8. New Job/ Promotion/ Retirement
"For (s)he's a jolly good fellow, for (s)he's a jolly good fellow"- sing it with me! A custom liquor barrel cabinet is a thoughtful gift for whatever phase of someone's career you're celebrating.
9. Valentines Day
She loves wine, you love her. He loves bourbon, you love him. Need I say more?
10. Midlife Crisis
What better reason to spoil yourself? Instead of getting a purple convertible (yes, my dad actually did that) treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind barrel that your friends and family won't make fun of you for for years to come.
