Hip flasks are making a comeback—and it’s easy to see why. These small containers can carry liqueur ever so discreetly, fitting in men’s coat pockets or trouser pockets without calling attention. Personalised hip flasks are also excellent commemorative items or gifts, especially when engraved with a name, initials, or even a special message. They are fantastic giveaways for the men in your wedding party, too.

Modern Hip Flasks

Traditional hip flasks were made out of silver, pewter, or even glass, but these days, most flasks are made of stainless steel. Newer designs even have ‘captive tops’ which are essentially caps that are connected to the flask (making them impossible to lose). Modern flasks are still contoured to fit in the pocket against the wearer’s thigh or hip. They come in all sizes, with the most common ones carrying 4 or 8 ounces of liquor.

Types to Choose From

When choosing hip flasks, think about what the recipient’s personal taste and preferences. The best flasks can be personalised with an engraving for special occasions. Here are some of the choices available to you online:

Stainless Steel - Most modern hip flasks are made of this material because of practical reasons. Some stainless steel hip flasks have engravings and patterns, but you will also find plain or minimalist versions.

Leather – Stainless steel hip flasks can be encased in leather, which makes them warmer to the touch and a little bit more luxurious. There are many colours to choose from, so you will surely find one that best suits your recipient.

Pewter – That’s right—you can still buy hip flasks that are made from pewter. They are not as common, but a specialist gift and engraving stores sell them. Pewter is a beautiful material that stands the test of time. If you want a flask that can potentially become a collector's item, this is the way to go.
