The American period drama Mad Men has created a craze for the swanky, stylish days of the 1960s. There’s a certain aesthetic quality to the show that is irresistible – especially the retro fashions and designs. If you have someone to buy for this year who absolutely adores the show, make sure that you treat them to something special and Mad Men inspired. Here are some great ideas for gifts for the Don Draper in your life, or anyone who is hopelessly in love with the show.
The Complete Series DVD Set
The Limited Edition Gift set has everything that a Mad Men fan could wish for, including all seven seasons on DVD, commentaries on every episode, four hours of exclusive special features, four collectable cork coasters and two handmade low-ball tumblers. Set your loved one up so that they can binge watch their favourite show for days.
Exclusive Whisky Tasting featuring Cesar da Silva
It’s not often that you see the characters in the show without a swanky and sophisticated cocktail in their hand, usually a whisky based drink. If you want to sip a high quality drink, consider enjoying this private Scotch whisky tasting experience for two in London, with the famous whisky expert Cesar da Silva.
During the experience you will get a chance to sample some of the highest quality Scotch whisky in the world, which is not available on the open market. You’ll also learn a lot about how each whisky is made and how the different spices and scents play a part in the tasting experience.
Glass Library Decanter
This gorgeous decanter is made from rough-hewn glass and has an elegant and retro look, topped with a round stopper. It would look perfect filled with whisky in a retro 60s style office, evoking the stylish look of the Mad Men aesthetic.
Barbie Collector’s Edition Mad Men Dolls
This is a quirky one of a kind gift for a serious Mad Men fan – a set of collector’s edition dolls depicting Roger Sterling, Betty and Don Draper and Joan Holloway. Each of the figures is stylized in a unique iconic costume inspired by the show, design by Robert Best. These dolls are certainly a conversation starter and the detail that has been put into recreating the characters is astounding.
Taste the Best Whiskies from around the World
If you’d like to expand your horizons beyond just scotch whiskies, why not head to London’s oldest whisky shop? Milroy’s of Soho includes hundreds of whiskies from around the world, including little-known gems from countries you may not have expected, including India and Italy. You’ll join one of the experts there to try three whiskies, paired with cheese, charcuterie and chocolate, followed by a whiskey cocktail
These are just a few fantastic gifts that the Mad Men fan in your life will love, so make sure to treat them to something special this Christmas.
