Product Photography: SWIG Hip Flask

I have given hip flasks as presents for friends in the past and I personally think they are a really trendy (and sometimes cheeky!) gift idea. SWIG Hip Flasks was originally founded in 2013 by David Galbraith as he had a dilemma of finding a decent "man gift" and a quality hip flask so he combined the two ideas and the rest is history as they say! Hip flasks are traditionally made of pewter and silver though these days, most are made of stainless steel and usually come in all sorts of designs and shapes.

SWIG Hip Flasks got in touch with me to ask if I could take shots of their product as well as a review. There are 5 ranges in their collection which include the Naked; Harris Tweed; Executive; Heritage; and Engraving.  

I selected the Harris Tweed Red flask as I love tweed and the design reminds me of the rural countryside. The packaging is very polished - mine came in a plush red box neatly tied with a black ribbon (as you'll see in the images below with my partner modelling it!) and on opening the box, we found the hip flask laying nicely on a silk-like cushion.  At first look and feel, the flask itself has a great finish, well made with quality stainless steel. The inverted side on the flask aids in a more comfortable grip and the weighty screw top means your less likely to lose it.  The flask is lightweight and small enough to fit inside a pocket. So if you're headed to a festival, these flasks would definitely come in handy and are made to last! 

There are some additional perks that come with being a SWIG Hip Flask owner, such as being part of a members-only SWIG Society. Each one has an engraving with a unique members only ID number making you part of the Society so you'll certainly feel part of an exclusive community and what's more SWIG encourages their members to share their adventures with their hip flask on the go on social media. 

With Christmas just around the corner, these SWIG Hip Flasks will make great presents or stocking fillers!
