21 Budget-Friendly Personalized Home Bar Accents
Perfect as Christmas, birthday, and retirement gifts, each one of these personalized home bar accents won’t break the bank yet will be a great conversation starter.
1. Authentic Oak Aging Barrel
The best home bar decor accent is also something that you can use to improve the overall bar experience. That’s why an authentic oak aging barrel is #1 in our list of personalized home bar accents.
These oak barrels look great anywhere, plus you can fill them up and use them to age your own spirits. And lastly, of course, it is custom engraved with your name and more.
Available in multiple sizes and designs. Shop all styles here.
2. Pressurized Growler Keg
Growlers are all the rage, and for good reason. A good growler will allow you to take craft beer from the tap straight to your refrigerator for home consumption.
This device takes it to the next level. The vacuum insulated stainless steel keg holds 64 ounces of craft brew and not only keeps it cold all day long, but keeps it tasting freshly carbonated for up to two weeks. No more flat beer!
The downside is that you can’t personalize this – yet. There is a similar pressurized growler called the “ManCan” that you can get custom engraved here.
3. Wine Serving Barrel
Boxed wine is a staple at great parties. It’s affordable, yet still tastes great, and keeps you from having to pop a cork every thirty seconds. The best way to class up your wine service is to use a wine serving barrel.
This oak barrel is custom engraved and easy to use when serving bagged or boxed wine. You won’t be ashamed to place it in the center of your party’s refreshment table.
4. Serving Trays
Serve your guests with panache. A personalized serving tray is just the ticket to add some flair to your home bar. Choose from barrel head trays, quarter barrel trays, and wrought iron-framed wood tray designs like the one shown above, all custom etched just for you.
5. Cork Catchers
Cork collecting is a light hobby enjoyed by many a wine connoisseur. Keep those corks (or beer caps, or pub matchbooks, etc) within reach and on display with a personalized vintage cork catcher.
Many designs, which include brew pub, brewing co. (pictured above), vineyard, cigar bar, old English pub, and more, can be customized for you here.
6. Vintage Connoisseur Plaques
The “Well Schooled Beer Connoisseur” sign (and “all-around drinking authority”) is a great gift idea to personalize for anyone who loves beer and has an old-fashioned sense of style.
We also offer a wide variety of additional “connoisseur” signs, including Wine, Whiskey, Bourbon, and many more. See all here. These old-fashioned distressed wood signs are made in the USA and add a wonderful accent to your home bar decor.
7. Vintage Personalized Bar Mirrors

The genuine wooden frame measures an expansive 26″ wide by 12″ tall. As for the mirror itself, it is solid glass and mounted in the frame with real wood backing. Arrives ready to hang. See all mirror designs here.
8. Contemporary Bar Mirrors
If the vintage/antique style isn’t your thing, consider a more modern look for your home bar mirror.
This mirror includes your name and established year around a centerpiece of clinking frothy beer mugs, solid wood and glass construction, and plenty of open mirror to give the room an expansive feel. Double the good times and great friends!

10. Retro Jukebox
Live a little, drink a little, dance a little. Personalize your home bar with music! A retro jukebox like this gives your home bar an old-school 1950s diner feel.
So maybe it is not personalized per se with any sort of custom engraving, you get to customize it all you want with the music you choose to play.
Not just FM radio but also CDs and BlueTooth for use with any device, your home bar will surely benefit from the addition of mood-setting music from this lovely retro jukebox.

12. Wine Barrel Dartboard
Competitively throwing sharp pointy objects goes well with alcohol. So what could be a better accent for your home bar than a dartboard and score keeping set?
A professional dartboard is mounted to an oak barrel head, and you can keep score on the barrel staves which have been converted into chalkboards. Add a bit of fun and barrel flair to your decor!
