The Christmas season is one of the most beautiful times of year for me. The first snow falls, you meet your friends at the Christmas market and enjoy the first mulled wine together: where I live, in Freiburg, there is a wonderful traditional German Weihnachtsmarkt. If I’m lucky, when I get home I am greeted by the lovely smell of freshly made cookies, meaning my boyfriend has been baking for me.
The only stressful part is the search for the perfect Christmas presents for my loved ones.
To make your search a little bit easier, we put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas. We offer a wide range of gift sets with absinthe, high quality spirits, accessories and much more. If you’re looking for a special gift idea, then Absinthes.com is the right place for you.
We also have a delicious Absinthe Eggnog recipe that fits perfectly with the Christmas season.
Gift sets with absinthe and spirits
Our selection of gift sets has something for everyone: gifts for friends, gifts for the absinthe freak in your life, for gin lovers, or just for your lovers. Whether you are looking for absinthe gift ideas for men or absinthe gifts for women – fine absinthe is appreciated equally by all the sexes.
You’re looking for the complete range of accessories that you need for the traditional absinthe ritual? Our accessory sets contain everything that you need. With its elegant black gift box, the set with a carafe, 2 glasses and 2 spoons makes for a great gift for everyone who has discovered absinthe.
Along with our accessory sets, we also offer spirits sets. These sets consist of the best absinthe and the matching accessories, so that you can start directly with an absinthe tasting.
One of my personal favorites is the Absinthe Blanche Neige, a Swiss Blanche with a special ingredient, génépi. This absinthe is also available with a gift set, consisting of 2 glasses, 2 grille and absinthe sugar.
For those of you who are fans of wooden boxes, we also have the right thing: the La Valote Martin set. This set comes with 3 high quality absinthes from Philippe Martin.

Recipe with absinthe: Absinthe Eggnog
We saved the best for last.
Have you tried eggnog with absinthe before? If not, then we can highly recommend the following recipe (which is almost as delicious as the Creme d’Absinthe from Bugnon):
- 40ml blanche Absinthe (for example Vit Opal from Svensk Absint)
- 40ml heavy cream
- 20ml sugar syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 whole egg
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass and shake without ice. Add ice and shake to chill. Strain into a glass or cup.
We wish you a wonderful Christmas time!
