Few festive drinks have caused quite the frenzy of M&S’s glittery gin snow globe. In 2019, the clementine gin liqueur – which comes complete with real gold flakes – flew out of stock several times in a row as we raced to stock up for December, and for 2020 the store has given it an even more glamorous upgrade by making this year’s version light up.
However, not content with simply bringing gin-based joy to our home bar carts, M&S has now had the genius idea to shrink the gin snow globe concept down and create gin-filled baubles you can hang on your tree. And yes, you can still drink the contents.
‘Following the huge popularity of the Light-up Glitter Globe Gin Liqueur – we have shrunk the Christmas must-have into bauble form – SUPER cute!’ a release from the store exclaims.
‘At £12 for a pack of 3 – these stunning baubles will add that extra sparkle to your Christmas tree – containing 23-carat edible gold leaf and 5cl of the delicious clementine gin liqueur.’
Not only can you hang them from the tree, the M&S gin baubles would make a perfect Christmas gift, or even multiple stocking fillers if you buy one box and divide them up. It’s worth noting that these smaller versions do not light up like their larger counterparts, but they’ve still got the glitzy flakes that gives the drink it’s signature shimmer.
When the adorable baby baubles were unveiled on the M&S Instagram account, the reaction was just as strong as for the full-size bottle, with more than 22,000 likes and hundreds of comments from customers asking how they can get their hands on them.
However, at the moment the M&S gin baubles are only available in stores, so you’ll need to check on your next trip to a branch if you want to get your hands on a set for yourself. See you in the queue!
