Frugalista Gifts: It’s Not too late – DADS & GRADS Socializing

Give gifts that aid the celebration parties both Dads & graduates will host.

Of course, the grads will probably throw those parties sooner. And more often. Still it’s summer, so Dad will have a few occasions to showcase his bartending skills.

For the faux bartender equip them with the tools.

The collegiate graduate and fathers might really appreciate these additions to their bars. Help them elevate their game. 

For the grads : as a reminder. Give, or dont_mix_em_poster-rd824b82a0e4f49d79b66c583dfa6624e_8sm2_8byvr_324bundle with gifts below, the Don’t Mix ‘Em Poster reminder . In several sizes.



A gift of the pretty Artland Oasis Antique Copper Finish Party Tub definitely adds some class to the get-togethers. Especially the outdoor ones. Includes stand. Double duty: use the tub for picnics. The resourceful grad can rent it out, too!
$65 $110



If they’re going to make the 83491746468895p (1)drinks, your gift recipient might as well make them right. Recipes printed on the Marquis by Waterford Vintage Vim and Vigor glasses help with that. The four glasses feature a recipe for mojito, gin and tonic, bloody Mary, or Long Island ice tea. Probably more the graduates thing, but you’ll know whether Dad is a novice mixologist. 



Or, for a bartender-in-training on your gift list, consider the Libbey® 9-Piece Cocktails Mixologist Set . They’ll make 28551941429198peven more impressive drinks. Includes a recipe glass and a muddler .

$30, available at retailers such as Bed, Bath and Beyond;;  Amazon (slightly higher)
