I turned to gin on my 18th birthday. That was a mistake. I’m pretty sure it took me more than a year to face drinking a G&T again. But, once I did, I never looked back! I love gin! Would I have thought then that I would be making personalised gifts for gin lovers? No way, but then I didn’t have a clue where I’d be or what I’d be doing by the time I was in my thirties!
It’s only recently that I’m becoming more interested in all the different types of gin that are available-there are a lot, with small batch producers on the scene creating some lovely blends. Last year we dabbled in making a little damson gin and, my oh my, I am definitely making more!
It was from my love of gin that many of the products on my site came to be. The wooden chopping board, with ‘…need a G&T‘ detailing was the first. This came about even before we had children and is definitely pertinent come the witching hour! When I began block printing bags and tea towels I, of course, had to include the same phrase. A way to show a bit of your personality in the kitchen or when you’re out and about doing the shopping. Just for reference, the bags are plenty strong enough for a big bottle of gin (it was only dutiful to check!).
Personalised Gifts for Gin Lovers
One of my latest products is a little wooden sign. It has the phrase, ‘Is it GIN o’clock yet?‘. Now I am sure we all know a few people for who this would be perfect. What’s better is with this wooden gin sign I can burn a personalised message on the reverse. It could be a name, a date or a little message of love. Now, throw in a bottle of gin and you’ve got my dream present right there!
Gin, gin, gin
At the moment, I am starting to design some new gin related products, a sign or two and maybe even an updated tote bag. It is highly likely (already happened) that gin may also be consumed while these products are coming to be…surely this must add to their authenticity, yes?!
