It’s once again the time of year, when we all find ourselves searching frantically for something to give those perennially confounding friends and loved ones who seem to already have everything. This endeavor becomes particularly vexing if the recipient in question is a wine or spirits enthusiast—serious devotees of fine beverages often exercise little restraint in purchasing coveted bottles to quench their thirst. Being well acquainted with this problem, I spent a little time this season tracking down a few gifts for lushes, which should provide holiday shoppers with some festive solutions to this dilemma. Here are some favorites that will lift anyone’s spirits during the holidays.
