Ice buckets are an easy way tokeep white wine and champagne cool. They're great for beer too. As a beer drinker, I can really appreciate a $30 bottle of 13% barrel aged imperial stout. Though it shouldn't be ice cold like a Budweiser, it still should be cool, and you be an ice bucket will help achieve that on a hot summer night.
It’s unusual to see ice buckets given as a gift, but why not? Many people have never purchased an ice bucket, even though they’d use one regularly. The buckets also make great containers for building your own wine gift basket. You can take the process one step further with personalized ice buckets. These add a personal touch to the whole gift, making it that much more significant.
Personalized Ice Bucket With Lowball Glasses
This Personalized Ice Bucket is a little different than most. It’s relatively small, as it is designed to hold the ice needed for spirits or mixed drinks. The idea works well, especially as this listing also comes with 2 whiskey glasses that have the same personalization.
Monogrammed Damask Plastic Ice Bucket
This Damask Plastic Ice Bucket isn’t as elegant as a glass one, but it makes up for that in practicality. You can use an ice bucket like this pretty much anywhere, without any concerns that you’ll break it. The personalization options are extensive. The seller has a whole library of different styles to choose from.
Hampton Collection Engraved Chiller And Ice Bucket
Products like this Hampton Collection Engraved Chiller and Ice Bucket are a good alternative to plastic ice buckets. The use of stainless steel means that the bucket will last a long time. You don’t need to worry about dropping it either. The piece can be engraved with either a name or a message along the top.
Our Monogram Engraved Ice Bucket & Chiller
What about this Engraved Ice Bucket & Chiller for something much more presentable? The piece is made from crystal and can be etched with a monogram, family name and individual names. The rolled crystal handles add a finishing touch to the piece.
Top Shelf Personalized Ice Bucket With Tongs
This Top Shelf Personalized Ice Bucket is another product for adding ice to whiskey. It even comes with a matching set of tongs that complements it perfectly. The ice bucket uses a double wall design, so you don’t need to worry about condensation. You can add whatever name or monogram you like to the piece.
Hampton Collection Personalized Ice Bucket
This Hampton Collection Personalized Ice Bucket is a small one as well. The glasses at the back of the image give an indication of the size. It has a nice design, which is a little different than most other ice buckets. It also has a handle that drops out of the way, making it easy to transport.
Silver Beaded Ice Bucket
This Silver Beaded Ice Bucket keeps your wine cool, while also adding some elegance to the proceedings. The engraving style is different than normal, as you’re adding text to the lid. You can potentially add up to 6 lines of text, but the font would end up being difficult to read. The piece would look best with just a single line or a monogram.
Nambe Mikko Ice Bucket
Ice buckets tend to have the same general design, but this Nambe Mikko Ice Bucket has an unusual shape, along with a stylish wooden lid. While it isn’t obvious from the image, this gift is large enough for cooling a bottle of wine. It can be personalized with up to 16 lines of text on the front and back, giving you plenty of space for a unique message.
Oval Beaded Ice Bucket
This Oval Beaded Ice Bucket is another option that looks unusual. The beaded handles are practical too, making the ice bucket much easier to pick up and move. There is no shortage of engraving space, so you can personalize this gift to your heart’s content.
Waterford Lismore Essence Ice Bucket
This Waterford Lismore Essence Ice Bucket is much prettier than most other ice buckets out there. That aspect alone makes it wonderful as a gift. The piece looks even better when it’s filled with ice and customized with your own message.
Mariposa Pearled Ice Bucket
The Mariposa Pearled Ice Bucket is made from aluminum and would be perfect for a bottle of wine. This time the engraving is done on the lid. You’re able to choose what is written there, such as a special date, a monogram or the names of the gift recipients.
Custom Coordinates Anchor Ice Bucket
The Custom Coordinates Anchor Ice Bucket doesn’t follow traditional engraving styles. The top part of the band is engraved with the longitude and latitude of any location that you choose. By default, the bottom part contains the city and state of the location. You can also specify text (of up to 18 characters) to be added instead.
Monogram Wine Cooler
While this Monogram Wine Cooler isn’t as elegant as a glass ice bucket, it does still have some style. There is also more flexibility. You’re able to include a monogram or text on the ice bucket and there are many different styles for each. You can also choose the color of the vinyl writing.
Name Or Monogram Champagne Bucket
This Name or Monogram Champagne Bucket is still made from acrylic, but guests might not know that at first glance. The knobs help you move the piece easily, without getting in the way. There are 6 different styles of engraving to choose from, including various monograms or text of your choice.
Marquee Brown Insulated Ice Bucket
This Marquee Brown Insulated Ice Bucket helps to keep your ice (and drink) cool for longer. The faux leather covering also means that the ice bucket isn’t cold to the touch. If you don’t like this particular engraving style, the same company has others too choose from.
Monogram Black Ice Bucket
This Monogram Black Ice Bucket should look familiar. It comes from the same company as the previous example. The difference is just the color of the leather, along with the customization style. Black does tend to look more elegant, but brown has advantages too.
Deep Etched Monogrammed Champagne Ice Bucket
If you want a glass product, this Deep Etched Monogrammed Champagne Ice Bucket might be the right choice. The deep etching approach means that your text will always look amazing. You can choose whether you want a name, monogram, initials, single initial or up to 4 lines of text engraved on the bucket.
Deep Etched Chateau Design Ice Bucket
Why stick to just text, when you can have something like this Deep Etched Chateau Design Ice Bucket? The choice of engraving makes the piece stand out so much more.
Crystal Champagne Ice Bucket
This Crystal Champagne Ice Bucket strongly focuses on the text. You’re able to include the entire text of an invitation or the more traditional approaches like a monogram or name. Why stop at an invitation? The text space could be used for another purpose too, like a love poem or a letter.
Atelier Ice Bucket
This Atelier Ice Bucket would make an amazing gift. The engraving approach is simple but it complements the piece extremely well. If you don’t like that monogram style, there are others that you can consider.
Acrylic Ice Bucket With Tongs
This Acrylic Ice Bucket with Tongs does everything that you need. It is an especially good way to store ice for drinks, especially at events. It can be used to keep wine cool too, although the bucket is smaller than many of the others on this list.
Block Island Ice Bucket
If you’re going to get an acrylic ice bucket, what about one that looks like this? The colors and pattern make it look much interesting than plain old plastic. The piece is also double walled and comes with tongs so that it is easy to use.
Marakesh Script Ice Bucket
This Marakesh Script Ice Bucket is an alternative approach. While the pattern and colors are very different than the previous example, you still end up with something that is going to stand out. The piece can be personalized with a name that is up to 36 characters long.
Personalized Ice Bucket With Lid
This Personalized Ice Bucket with Lid is an inexpensive choice that works well. You’re able to choose to choose a monogram style, font style and vinyl color. You can even have the ice bucket wrapped as a gift and have a custom gift message added on.
Vinyl Text Champagne Bucket
This Vinyl Text Champagne Bucket is very similar to the previous example. They’re both sold from the same place and allow you to change the monogram and font style,along with the vinyl color. This version is simpler and is also slightly larger.
Silver And Leather Ice Bucket
This Silver and Leather Ice Bucket isn’t exceptionally unusual, as the main feature is a small piece of leather on the handle. Even so, the style makes the ice bucket more interesting. The markings on the bucket itself look good too, especially once it has been engraved with your desired text.
Enamel Ice Bucket
The use of enamel with this ice bucket makes it an especially interesting choice. There are two versions available, blue and yellow. You’re also able to choose the monogram style (out of 8 choices) and the color of the monogram.
Leather Wrapped Ice Bucket With Tongs
I love how this Leather Wrapped Ice Bucket with Tongs stands out. The same brand has other similar bar accessories like a leather-wrapped cocktail shaker. The ice bucket is fairly small, so it’s best used if you want to add ice to drinks.
Personal Mini Ice Bucket
While this is called a Personal Mini Ice Bucket, it is still large enough to keep a bottle of wine cool. You just need to be careful how much ice you put in there as well. The engraving style is pretty too, adding a touch of elegance to the piece.
Lucite Ice Bucket
The patterns on this Lucite Ice Bucket are made using a colored insert that is digitally printed with your desired monogram. The process means that the ice bucket ends up looking bright and colorful. It can also be cleaned in the dishwasher if you take the insert out first.
Outdoor Ice Bucket
This Outdoor Ice Bucket comes from Mark & Graham. Despite the elegant style, the piece is made from plastic. The plastic type is called tritan, which is a little unusual. Tritan plastic is resilient and has more clarity than acrylic. This means that the ice bucket almost looks like it is made of glass.
Faceted Ice Bucket
It’s rare to see straight edges on an ice bucket, but this Faceted Ice Bucket makes the style work well. The idea would be particularly interesting as a gift, or in many modern bar settings.
Stainless Steel Ice Bucket
This Stainless Steel Ice Bucket uses a common enough design, but manages to make it look very good. The indentations above and below the engraving keep the piece interesting, as do the handles. Those handles would make it easy to carry too. The ice bucket can be engraved with 2 lines of text.
Copper Ice Bucket
This Copper Ice Bucket is a nice change from the traditional stainless steel and glass ice buckets. The copper coloring helps to make the piece much more distinctive. This isn’t copper plating either. The bucket is made from copper (with a tin lining), so it will need some extra care steps.
Canvas Ice Bucket
This Canvas Ice Bucket is a little unusual. Containers like this are normally used for keeping food cool using ice packs, rather than being used as an actual ice bucket. Still, the idea is viable and this product could be a good way to do so.
Acrylic Ice Bucket With Handles
Many ice buckets are only good for a single bottle of wine or a few beers. Not so with this Acrylic Ice Bucket with Handles. The shape of the ice bucket makes it easier to chill multiple bottles. The cut-out handles on the site means that you can move the ice bucket without any issues. You’re also able to choose the monogram style or font of your text, along with the color.
Georgian-Style Crystal Ice Bucket
The listing for this Georgian-Style Crystal Ice Bucket states that it could be used as an award and it’s easy to see why. The visual style works perfectly for that purpose. There is plenty of flexibility in the etching and you can even have a specific logo included. The seller offers 3 different sizes. You can pick whichever one suits your needs.
Monogrammed Stainless Steel Ice Bucket
This Stainless Steel Ice Bucket is more interesting than it first appears. The piece is designed to be fingerprint resistant and there is even a built-in tong holder in the lid (don’t worry, you get the tongs with the ice bucket). You can’t include a full name on the piece, just an initial. Even so, the 14 different font styles give you control over how the monogram looks.
Ice Bucket Cooler
This Ice Bucket Cooler completely ignores the common ice bucket style. It is promoted as a good groomsman gift, but would also be appealing to most guys. As the image suggests, the piece is designed with beer drinking in mind. It even includes a customized bottle opener, along with pre-printed coasters and a drawstring bag.
