The Absolut Best Gift Ever

As much as I love shopping, sometimes finding a good gift for someone can be somewhat of a struggle. Especially when it’s for the office Secret Santa or Yankee Swap with friends. You want to get something that almost anyone would love to get. Something so unique that it’ll be talked about for years to come. 

This holiday season, I’m gifting Absolut Elyx. The best gift ever! And, even better, it comes in a musical tin that when opened plays “La Vie en Rose”.  A song that is so magical, it reminds you of the holidays but can be played throughout the year. It has been a favorite of mine ever since the final season of How I Met Your Mother. I am so excited it’s the song I can share, along with my favorite vodka!

If you’re thinking of gifting it someone special, and want to give a little something more, pair it with the copper mule mugs, a personal favorite of mine. I use them to drink my favorite vodka drink! 

Vodka Cranberry

1 2/3 Parts Absolut Elyx

5 Parts Cranberry Juice

1 Lime Wheel

Pour over ice.

Vodka Cranberry isn’t exactly the most seasonally appropriate drink, but I make it work by swapping out the traditional lime garnish for cinnamon sticks.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Elyx Copper Collection, available for purchase in the Elyx Boutique! I know I’ve been eyeing things for friends, as well as a few for myself.

For me it’s been one spent taking a break, figuring out my next moves and really starting to get my ish together.

Like, so together that I actually made a 2015 reader survey, just not quite together enough as to have done Christmas cards.

But thanks to Minted and Victoria Gloria Photography, I was able to get a little something special for New Years…
