It’s nice to have something special under the Christmas tree, but what about on the tree? Candy canes are a sweet tradition, and you can get them in almost any flavor imaginable (ketchup-flavored candy canes, anyone?), but if you would prefer something a bit more grownup hanging from the boughs, you might want to check out these unique ornaments.

MyMealivos Festive Boozeballs Fillable Christmas Baubles are the perfect marriage of shot glass and ornament. The set of six food-safe plastic baubles feature screw-on lids tied with red ribbons long enough to dangle from your tree branches. Each bulb is labeled “Drink Me.” Three have white lettering and three come in black lettering.

Fill the tiny flasks to toast the holidays. For those under 21 or those who don’t have a taste for alcohol, you could fill them with anything from mocktails to juice. A set of six is $15.99 on Amazon.


For those who want a variety of sizes, Etsy has you covered. The Etsy store Mind Your Craft carries six-packs of clear fillable hanging “Booze Balls” in 50, 150 and 300-milliliter varieties.


The clear plastic ornaments have secure screw-on lids that allow you to fill the balls with your desired liquids and hang them without the worry of leaks or spills.

The hanging Christmas balls are unadorned, so if you prefer something understated, you may choose this option. Alternatively, if you have a Cricut or other craft die cutting machine, you could create an embellishment or decorate them with monograms and sayings to make DIY gifts that family and friends can use every holiday season.

The six-packs are available on Etsy. The 50-milliliter balls are $15.49, the 150-milliliter balls are $18.49, and the 300-milliliter balls (which converts to just over 10 ounces) are $20.92.

You might even opt to leave a special one for Santa on Christmas Eve.
