Feel the Personal Touch with Personalised Hip Flasks for Special Occasions

Sat, 11 Jul 2015

Gift shopping for your loved ones can take a toll when you feel like you have exhausted all your good ideas on them. However, there are always ways to get creative when it comes to presents, especially when the recipient is appreciative of personalised gifts. The hip flask is a versatile type of gift item that you can present as a novelty or a serious gift to most anyone. Whether you have a friend who is turning the legal drinking age or an uncle who is fond of collecting pewter flasks, engraved hip flasks make great gifts that are both practical and cool at the same time. 

Hip flasks are small, metal liquor containers that old-timey folks used to carry their drinks discreetly. While fewer people use them today, they are still a common sight. These little containers are small enough to fit pants and trouser pockets as they are meant to be carried around without being seen. In more traditional times, they were made out of silver, pewter, or glass but modern versions today are commonly made from stainless steel. 

Engraving the recipient's name onto a steel flask adds a nice twist to your gift. Online, you will find speciality gift stores that sell different types of flasks while also offering custom services. Stainless steel hip flasks are the most common modern-day versions available in the market. But there are other types that you can choose from, including ones that are encased in high-quality leather, as well as those that use classic materials like pewter and silver. However, hip flasks that are made out of pure silver or pewter are quite difficult to find. Other things you should consider when buying steel flasks for gifts include the shape of the flask and its size. Standard hip flask sizes range from 2.5 to 8 ounces.
