If you have a family member or friend who has a bar in his or her home, one of the fun things on your to-do list might be to buy this person a few items for the bar. You can often find what you need at a local kitchen supply store, but it can be more enjoyable to shop for specific items that really give the bar area a custom feel. If the gift recipient is someone who loves Texas — perhaps because his or her family's ancestors came from the state or maybe simply because he or she visited Texas and enjoyed it — you may wish to look for Texas-themed items for the bar. Here are some suggestions.
You'll have no trouble finding all sorts of Texas glassware that can suit your family member or friend's home bar. You might seek out a selection of shot glasses that have Texas-related graphics printed on them. Or, you might look for beer glasses, wine glasses, or other types of glasses that are adorned with Texas images. For example, you won't have any trouble finding glassware printed with the Texas state flag or state seal. Some types of glassware are etched rather than printed, which can offer more of an upscale appearance.
Texas Bottle Stopper
In the bar, there will likely be a number of bottles of alcohol on the shelves. Another good gift to consider is a Texas bottle stopper. You can find many types of bottle stoppers at Texas gift shops. Typically, they'll be made of wood, metal, or some combination of these two materials. Choose a design that you think the gift recipient will enjoy. For example, one option is a bottle stopper that has a metal lone star shape on the top of it to represent the Lone Star State.
Texas Cutting Board
When you think about a cutting board, you might think of the kitchen before you think of a home bar. The reality is that every bar needs a cutting board for tasks such as slicing lemons and limes while making cocktails. Look for a Texas-style cutting board that suits the look of the bar. It could be a standard rectangular shape with the state flag carved into the corner of it, or the entire cutting board may be cut in the shape of the state. You can buy each of these gifts online from a Texas gift store.
