I found the bottles at World Market, but IKEA also has them, which are so easy to decorate and tie a tag to. You could get fancy and etch the bottle beforehand with a monogram or something fun. Here’s a tutorial for Glass etching.

How to Make Homemade Irish Cream
I used my large ninja blender and just dumped in all the ingredients.
Watch how long you blend, because if you’re not careful, you may end up with Irish whipped cream. Don’t ask me how I know.
What kind of liquor do you use to make Irish Cream?
I generally use whiskey, but you can use brandy or rum as well. All will taste great.
Can you make Irish Cream non-alcoholic?
Yes! You can use a Rum syrup to achieve the taste without the alcohol.
