Ridiculous Drinking Gifts You Know You Kinda Want

 

OctopusOctopus Punch Bowl - I haven't forgotten about this punch bowl since I saw it at Bellocq in New Orleans a couple years ago, and then Imbibe magazine had a picture of it in their November 2013 issue. It's available on the VagabondHouse website (for a mere $2640) along with a whole bunch of other cool octopus stuff. 

 

Golden_booze_bangleCynthia Rowley Flask Bangle - For a mere $365 you can have a bracelet you can drink out of. It's so obvious that nobody would think to check your jewelry for contraband liquor at any event for which a giant bulbous gold or silver bracelet wouldn't be out of place (I'm thinking that football games might not be a smart choice). 

41G0wxW1JzLBev-Cam Flask - Hide your booze in a fake digital camera, since you only use your phone for photos anyway. It holds 5 ounces, which is better than most. And it costs $14.97. Buy it here.

 

81AlAh7K1qL._SL1500_Tampon Flasks - Hey, you have a niece in college, right? That's about the only person for which this would be an acceptable gift, and even still, no. More info on Amazon here.

 

Tumi Mixology Backpack - I don't suppose there is any bartender or liquor carrying case that is perfect for everyone. I've yet to see one that was perfect even just for me. But this fancy ($695) backpack from Tumi is rather glam. You can get one at the Tumi site here.
