The Best Wine, Beer and Spirits Advent Calendars of 2022
We've got something for the wine, beer, spirits and hard seltzer lover in your life.
Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner! If that statement has you feeling a little bit stressed, we can relate. Preparing for big holidays can be a lot, especially when you take into account all the gifts you need to buy. Though it can be nearly impossible to find just one gift that’ll satisfy every adult on your list, you can never go wrong with a bottle of joy. With so many varieties of it to choose from — wine, beer, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, gin, tequila, you get the idea... — gifting alcohol this holiday season is an easy way to adequately spoil every grown-up in your inner circle from the hostess with the mostest to the guy who's impossible to shop for.
Alcohol-based gifts can also be easily customizable — you can pair your chosen bottle of booze with just about anything, like a bottle opener or a chic set of cocktail glasses. Monthly wine subscriptions also make a great choice, since they're the gift that keeps on giving well beyond the holiday season. And who could forget about wine Advent calendars? Based on the classic kids holiday tradition, these adult-friendly finds have quickly become all the rage and have expanded well beyond your basic assortment of reds and whites to include world-class rosés, beers, hard liquors and spiked seltzers.
Some alcohol-filled Advent calendars are even stocked with 24-day's worth of the bubbly stuff! Since nothing cures holiday stress better than a cozy nightcap in front of the fireplace (or space heater), we've gone ahead and rounded up the best wine and alcohol Advent calendars of 2022, so you can start celebrating the most wine-derful time of year even earlier.
