BEER. You knew this was going to make the list at some point. Honestly, this is generally what I am hoping to see under the Christmas tree. Nøgne Special Holiday Ale, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, Rogue Santa's Private Reserve, and Full Sail Wassail are all great winter seasonals if you want to go that route. This is also a good opportunity to pick up that more expensive "splurge" beer they may have been putting off, perhaps Allagash's Confluence Ale or Dogfish Head Fort. Who knows, maybe they will open the bottle and share a glass with you on Christmas Day!
