2014 Home Bar Christmas Gift Guide

Posted by

The holiday gift season is upon us!  Home bar gifts have been some of our most popular Christmas gifts over the past few holiday seasons, and 2014 looks to be no different. There are tons of options, including real oak barrels for aging and home distilling, premium American-made plaques in classic pub sign shapes with personalized options, laser engraved wine, beer, and shot glasses, bottle openers galore for stuffing those stockings, antique style distressed wood signs, home bar chalkboards, and many more accessories and home bar decor items.

Finding the perfect gift for the home bar is a neat trick, and since many of the best Christmas gifts take time to make and/or customize for the recipient, it's great to get a jump start. Of course, if it's getting down to the wire, we can rush most of these items ( contact us for specifics), but it's always best to stay ahead of the game.

We'll start with the top 10 home bar Christmas gifts from last holiday season (2013), then guide you through these categories:
