The best gifts for tequila lovers are, of course, bottles of tequila. But personally, I’m not a big fan of gifting bottles of alcohol, so I prefer more unique tequila gifts such as funny shirts, wall art, or candles. And that is exactly what you will find in today’s post; 35 awesome and unique gifts for tequila drinkers.

And as a huge tequila lover myself, I loved putting together this post and selecting 35 fun options for you!

Are you short on time? Check out the editor’s top three gifts by budget.

To give you an idea of my love for tequila, let me share a Dutch saying I got from my mom and that I still use. It’s also a fun 101 class in Dutch language and culture.

In Dutch we say:

Everything that starts with “te” (which means “too” in Dutch) is bad, except for TEvreden (to be content) and TEsamen (to be together).

But for me and my mom, it’s this everything that starts with TE is bad, except for TEvreden and TEquila.

35 best tequila gifts for tequila lovers

Tequila gifts for large budgets

#1 Glasses made from Himalayan salt

These are one of the coolest gifts for tequila lovers; shot glasses that are made from Himalaya salt. And I mean literally. They are actual salt glasses. There is no need to add salt anymore because a tequila from these shot glasses already contains the perfect amount of salt!

Oh and don’t forget to tell the recipient to not put these glasses in the dishwasher because they won’t have any glasses left if they do; the salt cups actually dissolve in the dishwasher.

#2 Tequila glasses

A drink always tastes better if it’s served in the right cup. And the same applies to tequila. So if you are looking for practical gifts for tequila lovers, then glasses are the perfect option.

You can either go for a set of six handmade tequila glasses on Uncommon Goods (they are one of my favorites). Or check out Etsy, where you can find all sorts of beautifully designed tequila shot glasses.

#3 Monthly subscription

The best gifts for tequila lovers are, of course, bottles of tequila. But I can imagine that you would like to give something a little more unique. (I mean isn’t that the reason why you checked out this post in the first place).

And that’s where the monthly tequila subscription comes into place!

Instead of giving them joy once, you will actually bring them joy every month when they receive your monthly subscription again!

Mash & Grape will select the finest tequilas for them to try and each month they will receive a new surprise on their doorstep. You can select from 3, 6, or 12-month subscriptions. The only downside is that they don’t deliver outside the US.

#4 Tequila decanter

Tequila decanters are great gifts for tequila lovers who recently moved to a new home. These bottles make beautiful table pieces and the recipient can hide the fact that they’re a little alcoholic because nobody knows whether the decanter is filled with water or tequila.

I couldn’t decide which decanter I liked best, and I bet you will have difficulty deciding between all these amazing options too.

One of my favorites is definitely the hand-painted one on Etsy, but I highly encourage you to check out the other options there too. And if you prefer to buy from Amazon, my favorite was the tequila decanter on the photo with a glass agave in the middle.

#5 Hoodie

A tequila shot can keep the recipient warm for a moment, but this tequila-themed hoodie can keep them warm for a lifetime. And that’s what makes it such a fun gift for tequila drinkers who are always cold.

#6 DIY tequila-making kit

There is nothing better than a homemade drink. And for tequila lovers, there is nothing better than homemade tequila, and with this DIY tequila kit, they can make their own bottle and add whatever spices they want to create their personal flavored tequila bottle.

#7 Margarita and tequila gift basket

This tequila gift basket is by far the best gift for someone who absolutely loves margaritas. It contains everything they need to make the perfect cocktail at home!

#8 Flasks

It’s not a secret that tequila lovers drink a lot of tequila. But there may be times when they would like to keep it a secret just how much tequila they drink. So to help them hide their drinking patterns, a tequila-themed flask is a fun gift idea.

One of my favorite tequila gifts is this flask with a piece of life advice that every tequila lover lives by:

Tequila is cheaper than therapy!

Tequila gifts for mid-budget

#9 Bowl from a tequila bottle

I promised to give you gifts for tequila lovers that went beyond a bottle of tequila, but I lied a little bit.

This food tray is actually made from an old bottle of Patron tequila.

It’s one of my favorite gifts for tequila drinkers (though check out the next gift for more awesome refurbished tequila bottle ideas!).

#10 Recycled bottle soap dispenser

I am a big fan of recycling, so I absolutely love the idea of recycled bottles of Patron tequila, and that’s why I just had to include this soap dispenser as well.

#11 Scratch off poster

This is by far one of the best gifts for tequila drinkers who love to try different brands of tequila. With this scratch map, they can keep track of all the tequilas they’ve tried and add the others to their wish list.

And if you pair this gift with #23, they can even keep track of their own notes and thoughts on each tequila.

#12 Funny mug

This is one of the best gifts for tequila lovers because it’s so true. There is a very big chance they’re secretly drinking tequila from a mug. But at least they can use this mug to warn everyone around them.

#13 Tequila-themed necklace

Are you looking for cute tequila gifts for her? Then jewelry is always a good option.

I selected two cute pieces of tequila-themed jewelry for you. The first one is this beautiful necklace with a pendant of a bottle of tequila, salt, and their initials. For the second option, head over to #26.

#14 Tequila-themed water bottle

I know. It’s unthinkable, but it’s true. Tequila drinkers don’t always drink tequila!

But I’m pretty sure they do always think about tequila. So to make them feel a little bit better when they’re drinking water, a tequila-themed water bottle is an awesome gift idea.

On Zazzle, you can find nearly 300 options, or go for this funny one with: I lick, suck, and swallow.

#15 Funny doormat

Do you need tequila gifts for a housewarming party?

Then you just found the perfect gift; a doormat that they will definitely want to add to their doorstep. Because let’s be honest, they won’t let anyone in if they don’t bring tequila.

#16 Margarita travel kit

What’s a list of the best tequila gift ideas without including margarita gifts?

And boy, what an amazing margarita gift I have selected! It’s a travel-sized DIY margarita kit, so they can make a margarita wherever they are! All they need to add is tequila and Cointreau and they’ve got a delicious margarita.

Even tequila lovers have to drink something else than tequila sometimes. So if you are looking for gifts for tequila drinkers who also drink a coffee every once in a while, the travel mugs on Zazzle are awesome gift ideas.

I quite liked the “tequila is cheaper than therapy” mug, but there are over 280 options to choose from.

#20 Cookbooks

Tequila & Tacos: A spirited guide to pairings

Cookbooks are awesome gifts for tequila drinkers who love to experiment. The first option is a really cool cookbook that contains delicious combinations of tacos with tequila-inspired cocktails. It’s a great gift for someone who loves Mexico, Mexican food, and tequila.

The second option is a fun recipe book with 60 recipes for delicious cocktails with tequila and mezcal, making it the perfect gift for cocktail drinkers too.

#21 Tequila candle

It’s funny how for some people the smell of tequila is enough to make them gag, while for others it fills them with joy.

I’m assuming that your recipient as a tequila lover, falls into that last category, and for those people, candles that smell like agave are the best tequila gift ideas.

Tequila gifts for small budgets
