It's happened to the best of us. One minute, you're thinking about the perfect gift to give someone you love — and then before you know it, the holidays are just a few days away and you haven't bought a single thing.
Now that "perfect gift" you initially thought of is sold out, the brick-and-mortar stores are absolute mayhem, and you are pretty sure that you're totally screwed. But good news: you're not!
We put together a list of last-minute gifts under $40 that any craft beer lover would love — and they're all just an "Add to Cart" click away from arriving on your doorstep in two days' time.
You're welcome, procrastinators.
This bamboo drink caddy can carry six of their favorite craft beverages — and it has a bottle opener conveniently on its side, in case those beverages happen to have bottle caps. This set also comes with two bamboo flight paddles and three tasting glasses each, perfect for their next at-home beer tasting.
If you're searching for a gift for the beer-loving traveler in your life, look no further. This hardcover book features unique drinking destinations and little-known histories of beer styles from all around the world — all the better to help them plan their next boozy adventure with.
Who wants to hold a sweaty beer? Your hand gets cold, your beer gets warm... It's a tragedy, really. So, keep it from happening to them by giving them the gift of a stainless steel colster that holds tight to 12 oz. standard bottles and cans, and that even includes a "Collector Stash Can" with a lid to hide their valuables. We suggest ordering it in our signature Work For Your Beer mint color, but to each their own.
Know someone who likes things spicy? This hot sauce set comes with three delicious flavors: Asian Sriracha (mild), Garlic Serrano (medium), and Roasty Chipotle (hot). But the special part is that these sauces are all made with real beer. They're perfect for grilling, for tailgating, and for any other meat-centric activities they may partake in.
USA Beer Cap Map, $32.99
By giving someone this beautiful maple wood beer cap map, you're essentially giving them the gift of a craft beer bucket list. They'll have a new goal of filling these 69 empty slots with beer caps from each region of the United States, encouraging them to either travel or find an awesome local beer shop with a wide variety of brews to choose from.
There's nothing quite like cracking open a cold beer in a hot shower. And this caddy suctions right to the wall of the shower (or the bathtub, they prefer bubbles) to hold a beer, wine, or other beverage for them while they relax and unwind. Luxury or necessity? The line will get blurry once they start using it.
Beer Soap 6-Pack, $34.99
Speaking of shower beers, these soaps can also help them have a hoppy shower. You might not know this, but beer is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, so these soaps are great for their skin — and they actually smell fantastic, too (described as "spicy, roasty, fruity, sweet, and fresh," depending which one you're using.
"Probably Beer" Enamel Mug, $14.99
If you're buying a gift for a beer lover with a sense of humor, this cheeky mug is a great pick. They'll definitely get a laugh or two from their officemates while they sip coffee out of this bad boy in their next conference room meeting.
A tailgating necessity for any craft beer lover, this knitted koozie glove will keep their hand toasty and warm while keeping their beer cold — an absolute must-have for football fans in particular, or any other folks you might know who enjoy drinking beer outdoors in cold weather. (That's not us, but it's probably someone!)
Unclear what the scientific reasoning might be, but it's true: opening a beer on the wall is just more fun than opening it with a hand-held bottle opener. And this wall-mounted bottle opener also has a magnetic cap catcher too, which will capture each bottle cap out of mid-air, keeping their countertops clean. Win-win-win.
