Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or a wine aficionado, having a bar at home is a relaxing and enjoyable feature. Here are a few simple steps to putting together your own bar along with some key accessories. **This would be a great surprise for Father’s Day!
The bar itself
Not everyone can have a built-in arrangement but I find the best bars are the ones that are movable, simply because they’re convenient for parties and setting up small refreshment stations. Arrange a candle and small floral arrangement and you’ve got yourself a charming area where guests will enticed to help themselves.

Accessories make all the difference
You can’t make a Mojito without the mortar and pestle or a martini without the perfect shaker. Here are a few simple pieces to woo your guests.

Silver cocktail shaker, $17 (customization additional)

Stainless steel jigger, $2.79 each
Once you have all these items on hand, arrange them with a small group of lemon twists, olives or what ever flavors your recipient enjoys. Make sure there’s a nice bucket filled with ice and sparkling glassware on hand. This is an unexpected twist on a typical gift and the man in your life will love it.
