Your favorite drinking buddies deserve more than just another round for the holidays. These booze-themed gift ideas will have them lit with gratitude.

Dive Bar Shirt Club Membership

Even home bartenders have their Cheers, and it’s probably a dive bar.

Sparkling Wine Kit

Be ready for your New Year’s Eve party with a bottle of your very own homemade sparkling wine. (Sorry, only the French get to call it Champagne.) Choose your sweetness from cava to brut; each kit makes one gallon. $70, brooklynbrewshop.com

Fantastical Fictive Beers Poster

Because if your friend is a beer nerd, they’re probably a straight-up nerd, too. This comprehensive poster by Pop Chart Lab includes over 70 fictional beers from movies, TV and cartoons, from the all-ages Butterbeer in Harry Potter to Al Bundy’s Girlie Girl. $29 with framing options, popchartlab.com

Regency Double Old Fashioned Glasses

Harkening back to more elegant times, these Regency-era tumblers are perfectly on-theme for the holidays (don’t they look like ornaments?) and perfectly retro the rest of the year. Goblets, wine glasses and a decanter are also available. $55.96 (set of four), williams-sonoma.com

Golden Girls Coasters

Every record-setting old-timer seems to have some kind of boozy ritual — the Queen of England drinks three cocktails a day, and you know she’ll never die! Living well is the key to living long enough to retire in Florida, so enjoy your drinks on these hand-painted walnut wood coasters made in Brooklyn. $35 (set of four), urbancricketnyc.com
