On weekends, Douglas and I like to drive out to a neighbourhood to walk around to explore new shops and restaurants. Last weekend we decided to check out two areas in southwestern Vancouver as it was cold and wet outside. We first checked out Marine Gateway, which surrounds the Marine Drive Skytrain Station, then flocked over to Oakridge Mall by Cambie and 41st.
As Douglas was reminiscing about the times when his father took him shopping for sports and school gear at Oakridge Centre, we popped into the large BC Liquor Store on West 39th Avenue. He was surprised to find a location so big in selection, as he initially thought all BC government liquor stores were small. We were thinking about picking up a vodka-related gift for our brother-in-law after seeing the giant three-litre bottles of vodka found behind cases and on the shelves through the government liquor store.
For those looking for something more creative for the vodka-lover on your list, here are some gift ideas:
ABSOLUT BOOK.: THE ABSOLUT VODKA ADVERTISING STORY
Highlighting the award-winning marketing and advertising campaign of Absolut Vodka, this art and design book features over 250 pages of magnificent bottle art and iconic ads.
Infuse your own vodka
Make flavored spirits, works with anything including rum, tequila, or whiskey for fresh cocktails like strawberry-lemon-basil martinis, blackberry mojitos, blood orange margaritas.
What were other unique vodka-themed gift ideas you have received or seen before?
And as always, please enjoy and party responsibly.
