Gift Guide: For the Entertainers

When I say these are for entertainers, I'm not referring to people who sing, dance, or act. I mean people who like to have other folks over for drinks or dinner; casual or fancy; a couple or a crowd.

Owl's Brew Tea

Owl's Brew is an artisinal tea that's specially brewed for use in cocktails. I've tried a few of them and they're indeed very tasty. While they're designed for cocktails, they'd also be nice for mocktails. Great for people who like mixing fun cocktails as well as fans or tea.

Viking Steak Knives

If you have friends who like to host dinner parties and meaty barbecues, they'd no doubt love a set of sharp, quality knives, like this boxed set from Viking.

Blue Isle Spreads

Blue Isle makes a variety of yogurt spreads that are quite tasty. I'm smitten with the French Onion, and the Spicy Vegetable is great, too. There are also sweeter varieties that work with fruit or as a spread for English muffins. Add these to a basket with some crackers and you're good to go.

Woodchuck Hard Cider

Ready to drink or use in cocktails or recipes, these would be a great bring-along gift for your hosts, or part of a gift basket. They're delicious and different.

Hibiscus in Syrup

Hibiscus flowers look pretty floating in a glass of fizzy wine or champagne. Or mocktail it and float them in sparkling water. If you've got friends who make fancy drinks or host breakfasts and brunches, they'd love these.

Woodwork Wine

Wine is always a welcome hostess gift, or great in a gift basket with crackers, cheese, and other noshes. Some people say that they buy wines based on the label, so this one might be the wine you buy for the crafty person you know.

Kaibae Baobab Fruit Powder

This powder is supposed to be good for you, but the secret is that it tastes good - sort of fruity, tart, sweet, and citrusy. Creative cooks and drink-makers might want to add this to their arsenal of unusul ingredients.

Chill Factor Cocktail Maker

Here's a fun way to make slushy cocktails. The container spends some time in the freezer, then you put the ingredients in the cup and squeeze and squish it until the liquid turns into a slushie-frozen cocktail consistency. There's a juicer and grater that comes with the kit so you can add fresh juice and zest.

Mastrad Muddlers and Cocktail Picks

These muddlers are fun and colorful AND they're not just muddlers - they're straws. The set comes with the different colors, so they also help folks identify which drink belongs to them. There are also cocktail picks that are a similar shape in the same colors. A nice little gift for people who like their cocktails, or an add-on gift along with cocktail ingredients.

Note: While I received some items at no cost to me for prior or future reviews, I am also featuring items that I purchased. I was not compensated to include items in the gift guides - these are all my choices.
