Vodka - Am I being cheap?

Last year, I infused vodka for my friends as a holiday gift.

This year, well, I am a little broker than I was last year. I am planning on doing most of my "gift making" this weekend, as I like to give gifts around New Years.

Is it out of my reach to think I can still give gifts of infused vodkas to my friends? To clarify, I buy a few liters and seperate them into individual smaller jars/bottles. So I am only thinking of buying 3-4 liters.

Is it not worth it if I have to go for the cheaper booze? I actually am not even sure what brand vodka I should go for (suggestions welcome!), but I need your non-judgey opinions. Should I just give up or is it possible to make this work with cheaper vodka...?
