Last Minute Gifts

For your dad: Fuji Single Grain Japanese Whiskey

Not sure what Christmas presents to get for Dad? Spirits from Japan have a certain refinement and style … just like your dad (…ahem). Elevate his palate with this whiskey. Fuji Single Grain Japanese Whiskey is made by blending three different types of grains: a light, a medium and an intense. The result is a smooth spirit with notes of pear, chestnuts and orange peel.

For your mum: Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage NV

Can you even go wrong with Champagne gifts for Mum at Christmas? We don’t think so. And you can be cockily confident giving Mum a bottle of fruity Rosé Sauvage NV from champers powerhouse Piper-Heidsieck. Bubbles-loving mums are guaranteed to be happy unwrapping this one.

For your cousin: Punters Corner Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Need wine gift ideas for cousins? Kind of like your oldest friend, Punters Corner Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is a seriously good vintage. But probably unlike your oldest friend, it’s rich, smooth and elegant.

For your sister: Chandon Brut Vintage Sparkling

Sparkling wine for sister, check. Sparkling always takes centre stage at Christmas celebrations. And if this is also an accurate description of someone you know, why not give them a bottle of bubbles – like Chandon Brut Vintage Sparkling – to cement their rep as the ultimate party starter?

For your best friend: Glenfiddich 14YO Bourbon Barrel Single Malt Whisky

We think whisky gifts for best friends are the way to go. Sure, you’re not meant to be thinking of yourself when you give a present but we reckon whoever’s on the receiving end of this classic is obliged to share the bottle with you. Glenfiddich 14YO Bourbon Barrel Single Malt Whisky is beautifully rich with creamy toffee and candied orange peel flavours, and is just the thing to sip over long chats with your mate.

For your work bestie: Beyond the Wilderness Pinot Rosé

Let’s be honest, when you get down to the work friends or Secret Santa section of the gift list, price is of the utmost importance, so you’re after affordable wine gifts here. Luckily we’ve found a great-value wine for your work bestie and you won’t be ashamed to hand it over at work, either. Beyond the Wilderness Pinot Rosé is a Tassie pinot rose that’s lighter than pinot noir so it’s perfect for the hot summer months, and the aromas of freshly picked strawberries and rose petals don’t hurt either.
