Surprise the cocktail enthusiast

How to Build a Cocktail Gift Set

This one's for the cocktail lovers. The friends who always know about the hottest rooftop bar in town, who knows where you can find the best tasting espresso martini, or in fact, the bartender friends who are absolute pros at shaking things up. Everyone deserves to let their hair down and unwind. And what better way to do that than with surprising your fellow cocktail enthusiasts with a cocktail gift set?

Cocktail gifts can be the perfect gift for mixologists and cocktail enthusiasts, and it's not just because they are handy to have during happy hour. Other than practicality, cocktail sets are stunning to add to someone's home bar experience, giving their bar cart a total upgrade.

The best part is, you don't have to start from scratch. If you are looking to make a personalised cocktail gift set for your pal, then our well-supplied barware range has you covered. With this Matchbox Mixologist Gift Guide, we're here to help deliver you (and your friends) the best and most memorable cocktail experience. If they're into home bartending, they're going to love our selection of cocktail syrups, mixing glasses and more below. All you have to do is wrap these curated picks in some snazzy gift boxes, and you have the perfect cocktail set anyone will love! Now... where do we begin?


What's a mixology gift set without some mixers? We are super proud to supply the crowd-favourite Mr. Consistent Premium Cocktail Mixers online and in stores. Each one is proudly made and packed in the Gold Coast of Australia using the freshest ingredients in a variety of flavours.

Thanks to their range, anyone can craft some consistently amazing cocktails – not only that, if you don't want to mix with spirits, simply substitute with sparkling water or simple syrups and you have some marvelous mocktails too!

Next, we have our cocktail sets and shakers, which make excellent gifts for bartenders. There's nothing like a good stainless steel shaker to give them a new bartending companion on their day-to-day (or special occasions). We go a step beyond that and offer cocktail shaker sets from a number of high-end brands, such as TEMPA, Bartender, BarCraft and more.

You can't miss out on the Tempa Aurora range, for example, which has a sleeve that double functions as a recipe book with up to 8 classic cocktail recipes. There is no doubt these bar tools will make great gifts and be a game-changing treat for the bartender in your life.
