Personalised Hip Flasks: a Gift for Someone Who Loves to Booze
Posted by The Engraved Gifts Company on December 12th, 2014
Hip flasks have been around since the early 18th century, carried around by people who want to carry their drinks discreetly. These small containers are generally shaped to follow the curvature of the hips or the thighs, making the flask more comfortable to carry and easier to conceal. Traditionally, hip flasks were made out of pewter, silver, and glass, but today's versions are commonly made out of stainless steel. Modern hip flasks still follow the same form, but they also come in different shapes and sizes, including decorative ones that are perfect for collecting.
Antique flasks from the 19th century have become sort of a very sought after collector's item. Flasks from this era used silver, which does not only make them more precious, but also ensures unaltered taste, as silver does not react with the contents, preserving the drink's flavour. Hip flasks are also traditionally bound in leather to protect the metal. They also come with an engraving plate, which makes them ideal gifts as they can easily be personalised with a customised design or a special message.
Hip flasks are also the perfect gift for someone who loves to booze and carry drinks around discreetly. Offering something where they can put their scotch, vodka, or whiskey and carry them wherever they please is a great way to put a smile on the face of someone who enjoys tippling or livening up his or her drinks with a few drops of booze.
This customisable gift is also a great choice for grooms, groomsmen, dads, and uncles, as well as for someone who has reached legal drinking age. When giving out hip flasks as gifts, make sure to remind people to use it moderately so as to prevent them from being dependent on booze, especially when presenting it as a coming of age present for a young drinker.
Today, it is easy to find engraved hip flasks at a good price. Online specialist gift stores offer a wide range of exciting personalised items that you can choose from to find the perfect present for your loved ones. When shopping for an engraved hip flask, choose a company that offers a wide variety of hip flask designs and styles to make your gift as unique as the person who will be receiving your special gift.
