Our 2020 Gift Guide

Something for everyone, from $10 stocking stuffers to deluxe presents

by Stranger’s Guide

Especially in a year when so many of us can’t see family, holidays and holiday shopping can feel like a chore. But never fear—we’re got you covered with picks for even the hardest-to-shop-for uncles and aunts.

We’re a small, independent publication, so every Stranger’s Guide order is handled by one of our team. Special requests? Personal notes? Just put them in the “Order notes” at check out. We handwrite your message, so that whoever receives your gift will know it’s from the heart!

Welsh Whiskey

You’ve heard of Irish whiskey. You’ve heard of Scotch. But what about whiskey from their neighbor, Wales? After more than a century in exile (the country’s last distillery, Frongoch, shuttered in the early 1900s), the industry made a comeback in 2004 when Penderyn Single Malt was launched on St. David’s Day, a celebratory day for the patron saint of Wales. The Distillery is located in the Brecon Beacons, a breathtakingly beautiful mountain range and national park in South Wales, and is now sold all around the world.
