This makes it even more important to be thoughtful when planning a gift for that particular bartender in your life. While gifts can be a deeply personal and affecting choice, we’ve compiled a list of gifts that should appeal to the man behind the bar.

Note: All the details, such as price and reviews, were accurate as of the publishing date.
