Best Unique Gift Ideas for Bartenders
Do you have a bartender on your holiday gift list? Or maybe a special bartender’s birthday is right around the corner? Whatever the occasion is, there sure is a perfect gift somewhere for it. I hope you find something memorable, useful, or funny on this page. Those are the three things I try to think about when gift buying. Is bartending just a job for them or is it their passion? Are they a professional with years of experience or are they new to it? Do they already have a bookshelf of vintage bartending books, or could you safely buy them a classic book? Bartending books are hot stuff – if you look on Ebay, you will find that ones published around the time of Prohibition are often subject to bidding wars. Many of them have been reprinted, but a first edition is always way more desirable. Now, on to some novelties for your perusing pleasure 🙂
Bartender Sculpture & Wine Holder – for the Bartender who has everything else! This a hand-made sculpture of a bartender, which also holds a bottle of wine! Pretty clever, don’t you think? Look at that mustached face, bow tie, and stool! It even looks like he’s wearing a buttoned shirt. The artist really was detail oriented. I’ve seen these for other occupations as well, and they’re usually pretty good.

Gold Bartender Pendant for a Necklace – “#1 Bartender” in 14K Gold. Show how much you appreciate them with this #1 Bartender pendant. It’d look great on a gold chain necklace, which you could buy along with this pendant… To make it a “ready to wear” gift. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry!
