Top Ten Gifts to celebrate sober birthdays and recovery milestones

Posted by Stella Coombe on

Sober? Alcohol free? Sober curious? Just completed dry January? You rock! Here are our favourite top ten gifts to encourage anyone who is celebrating their 1st (or 50th!) sober birthday.

If you have a friend, partner or family member in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction you might be wondering how to celebrate their sobriety milestones and what is the best gift for a sober birthday. 

People who are in a twelve step fellowship might be gifted a small engraved ‘chip’ from their group members to mark their period of abstinence, but what about people who are going it alone or doing it in another way? Other people might also want to celebrate being sober their own way - those who have just completed dry January, people who are sober due to their religion or are part of the growing sober curious movement. 

So, to celebrate recovery and sobriety - whether it's 24 hours, one year or 25 years, we have some awesome gifts for you to choose from which make perfect presents to celebrate sobriety.
