Flasks for Women

I'm looking to buy a cute/funky flask as a present for my friend's birthday.....something to hold a bit of Fireball on a cold winter's night! I would like to find a flask that doesn't look too masculine. Does anybody know where I can find such a thing - preferably in Vancouver? Mucho thanks!

    My sister just told me that this gadget exists this past weekend. I laughed myself silly.

    I'm definitely not serious about it as your gift, but thought you might get a giggle!

      House of knives has a dainty 5oz model in stainless steel for around $20. For thirstier folks they have larger versions as well.

        You could try Obsessions on Howe and Dunsmuir. I know they've had flasks in the past but haven't been in for a while so can't say for sure about now.

          Thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely check out House of Knives and Obsessions to see what they have. Terrie - I think that bra is hilarious!! It would make watching the kids' soccer games more fun! Too bad it doesn't come in my size.....

          I bought a nice little silvered metal one a couple years ago at Ikea.

            Hmmm....didn't even think of Ikea. A little far for me, though.

            The engraving places at the mall usually have a selection of more feminine flasks.

              I did end up going to one of those engraving places....found a cute pink one and had her name engraved on it! I think she'll really like it.

              I like those tiny flask by Anne Taintor. I think I had seen them in a store on W 4th near Burrard. But I can't remember the name of the store.

                Oh! That would have been a good idea.....I think I know which store you're talking about, but I can't remember the name either - I'll have to keep that in mind for somebody else - thanks!
