Hip Flasks


Whether you are shopping for a man or a woman, engraved hip flasks are an option well worth considering. Not only will the recipient be able to use the flask when at events or parties, but they will also constantly have a little reminder of your love for them every time they do so.   You can find hip flasks for every type of occasion and taste, from modern carbon fibre to a leatherette finish, and all in a range of colours.   One extremely popular option is the pewter hip flask engraved for that little bit of extra luxury and sentiment. These flasks definitely impress, as they are hand-made from a high quality pewter and are polished to a mirrored shine. If you are purchasing a handmade piece, you know that you are getting a piece of art that has a lot of individuality, especially if you include your own personal message.  This type of gift is perfect for such occasions as special birthdays and Father’s Day. Many come in presentation sets, which include a funnel for easy filling of the flask, and in a range of sizes too, from the ultra-discreet 3oz option to the larger, more functional flask that holds 8oz of liquid.

The Engraving Process

Hip Flask Engraving ProcessEngraving a hip flask permanently sets your memory into the metal. An engraved hip flask makes a wonderful gift for birthdays, weddings, graduations and retirement, and is the perfect way to commemorate a special moment.

Engraving Excellence specialises in offering truly beautiful engraving on all of our items, and our hip flasks can be engraved in a variety of designs and typefaces. When engraving, our master engraver carefully engraves using computerised machinery to ensure a clean, crisp engraving on every personalised hip flask.

Engraving is a permanent alteration, and as such the engraving will never wear down or fade. This makes it the ideal gift to use as both a display piece and functional hip flask for daily use.

 


History of Hip Flasks

Traditionally, pewter, silver, and sometimes glass were used to make hip flasks, though the main majority of modern hip flasks are now made of stainless steel. There are still some companies in the UK who skilfully hand-make gorgeous pewter hip flasks, and Engraving Excellence are a stockist of both stainless steel and pewter hip flasks. These days, it’s also possible to get plastic hip flasks which avoid detection from metal detectors!

In the Middle Ages, rudimentary hip flasks made from gutted fruit were common, and later on, hip flasks were often hidden in women’s petticoats to smuggle aboard ships. These primitive hip flasks paved the way for what we now call a hip flask, and modern hip flasks are far more hygienic and long lasting when compared to their ancestors.  During the Prohibition era in the United States of America, hip flasks soared in popularity, with many people keen to avoid detection from the authorities whilst still drinking. During the era, the sales of both hip flasks and cocktail shakers surpassed the years before, which eventually lead to a ban on both items until the end of Prohibition.

These days, carrying a hip flask in the United States could see you in contravention of open carry laws, but hip flasks are still a unique, thoughtful gift for a wide variety of occasions.

Hip flasks have historically been given as a gift for milestone birthdays, such as an eighteenth (or the age of majority in various countries), and are also a wonderful gift for retirements, anniversaries or other milestone events. Hip flasks are also a lovely gift idea for weddings, and can be bought to gift an entire wedding party, or just for a hen night or stag! Engraved hip flasks make an excellent present that can be used and cherished for a life time.
