It’s that time of year again. Christmas gift shopping is in full force even though it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet. But in all fairness, Thanksgiving is a week later than usual which shortens the time to purchase everything. And, if you’re buying gifts online, you best get a jump on it so everything arrives before December 25. But don’t stress! I’m here to help with some great items you might want to consider picking up for your craft beer enthusiast guy or gal.
I actually came across the majority of these items as I was creating my wishlist. I’m not hard to shop for at all. You’re pretty much safe getting me beer, clothing or gift certificates to places where I can drink beer or buy clothing. Even better when it’s beer clothing. Double WIN! I’ve been an exceptionally good girl this year, so hopefully Santa delivers. (wink, wink)
~ $25 for 4 ~
You get to select which coasters you’d like from an extensive list of available breweries. My favs are Mad Elf, anything from Kona and Flying Dog Dead Rise. I love that the artwork comes from six-pack beer carriers. Neat!
~ $24 ~
Bracelets made from beer cans? Uh-huh. That’s right. Beer cans. What a clever and stylish idea. You can select from what’s in stock or request a custom order. I especially like the look of wearing multiple bracelets with varying colors and textures.
BOTTLE CAP EARRINGS
~ $10 ~
These are some of the most interesting I’ve seen yet. The detail that’s created with the wire woven around the cap is simply gorgeous. Not your usual bottle cap earring. Browse this crafter’s store and check out the different wire styles.
FRAMED BEER SIGNS
~ $20 ~
Choose from over 300 different breweries. When ordered, each is custom-made from six-pack carriers, beer cans or other packaging items. These especially look stellar when multiple signs are hung on the wall together as a group.
~ $19.99 ~
This craft brewery, name-dropping, typographical beauty would be great for wearing to beer fests, beer meetups or just sporting it under a smart black or dark grey blazer for a casual night out. It’s available as a v-neck, too, if you prefer that style.
SOUR BEER T-SHIRT
~ $23 ~
I love the vintage look of the shirt and the playful message: “I like my beer sour, crafted by Lactobacillus.” If you’re a beer geek, you get it. And, other beer geeks will, too. It’s a great conversation starter not to mention it’s stylish as hell. Also, available for men.
~ $23 ~
Ideal for any Hop Head craft beer fiend. The green color is pretty sweet and it has a great fit. But don’t worry if you’re more into Stouts, Lambics, Hefeweizens or other beer styles. This Etsy store has a t-shirt for you, too. Also, available for men.
‘REAL CATS LOVE BEER’ T-SHIRT
~ $16 ~
This shirt is beyond cute, makes you smile and amazing all wrapped into one. Available in a ton of colors. I’m leaning towards the navy blue or chesnut. Also, available for men.
CHALKBOARD BEER FLIGHT PADDLE
~ $19.95 ~
Perfect for a bottle share party, for the homebrewer or for anyone who loves to enjoy craft beer at home. The paddles are finished with chalkboard paint so you can identify each beer. Very helpful when doing sampling events! (does not include the glasses)
BEER JELLY SET
~ $28 ~
The set of 4 includes: IPA, Black IPA, Porter and Oatmeal Stout. The jellies are made in small batches in Vermont and are packaged in the elegantly, simple glass jars. I would love these for bottle share parties to serve with french bread as a tasty snack in between sips.
KNITTED HOPS HAT
~ $48 ~
Completely handmade and adorable. This is a beer fest must-have. Or, look totally rad this winter enjoying the outdoors. There are two shades of green to choose from and there are two other hat styles available in the Etsy store.
CLIP-ON BEER HOLSTER
~ $25 ~
Made from genuine leather and available in dark brown or black. Clip it on one of your favorite belts or order one in a variety of styles from this same crafter. Another must-have for beer festivals or while mowing the grass. I love the hands free approach.
CRAFT LOYAL HOODIE
~ $40 ~
Stay warm and be stylish while you enjoy that beer. I’m really digging the artwork design – one of the better craft beer attire designs I’ve seen in a long time. You can also get a t-shirt with the same graphic. Available for men, too.
