Buying a new Hip Flask

So you are buying a new hip flask…..

Buying a new Hip FlaskThere are a few thing to take into consideration when it comes to buying your new tool in the fight against sobriety, the first question is regrading whether the new hip flask is for you or a gift for someone else.

The reason we ask this first as deciding the type of flask really depends on what it is going to be used for.  If you are purchasing this hip flask for yourself then I’m sure you have a idea in mind of the kind of flask that you would really like to own, whereas if you are purchasing for someone else then you don’t have the luxury of knowing what the recipient is after.  If you know the person really well then you will be sure to pick the perfect flask for them, however as often is the case this type of gift is purchased as a retirement gift, birthday present or wedding favours and although you might know the intended recipient you might not know what they like in a flask.

What is a Flask?

What is a Flask?

What is a Flask? Is a common question and one that can be answered quite simply.  What is a Flask?
A flask is usually a sealed container which is made to hold and store liquid.  Some flasks are double walled and made to hold both hot or cold liquids.

Hip flasks are made to hold alcohol for a brief period of time, usually no longer than a couple of days, these containers are single walled and have no thermal properties.

Pewter Hip Flasks and why they make the perfect gift

Pewter Hip Flasks and why they make the perfect gift

Pewter Hip Flasks are wonderfully make gifts and make the perfect item to give to a loved one, friend or work college. Celtic Pattern 6oz Pewter Hip Flask with captive top
Pewter has been produced in Britain for many years.  This precious metal is often forgotten but should definitely be on your list when it comes to interesting and unique jewellery or in our case great looking hip flasks.
