Do you love wine? At least one stemware set is a must for a wine lover – one large enough to hold reds, and maybe pick up a few champagne flutes to round out the collection.
And, what if the role is a little more finesse? A gift for a friend with a sense of humor or a unique sense of style? Especially for travelers and casual parties, durability is the most significant concern. This guide embraces the great variety of glassware we can buy to add class to your parties!
Wine Glass as a Gift
If you’re looking for unique wine glasses to give as a gift to a wine connoisseur, there are a few things to bear in mind to ensure that your thoughtful gift doesn’t end up in dark recesses of a cabinet.
Hand engraving styles became common in the 2010s. Cool, humorous, and cute sayings are often found in trendy items at the mall. Wine glasses were influenced by this trend as well.
Online retailers sell cheaper hand-lettered wine glasses that are often made of poor quality glassware or glassware with thick rims. Sometimes there is poor quality printing or engraving on the glassware. If a few letters vanish from a printed-on slogan after just a few washes, the saying is no longer humorous. Hand-lettering can also be distracting for some wine enthusiasts. Although the lettering is amusing, it can distract from the perceptual elegance of swirling and analyzing the wine in the glass.
Here are Some Unique Wine Glasses
We have focused on more unique designs of the glass rather than the glassware with handwritten quotes.
Giant Wine Glass
These novelty wine glasses are twenty inches high. And, they can indeed keep a whole bottle of wine. This wine glass’s main objective will be as a gift given to someone as a joke; however, it can also be used for holding corks, fish bowls, and wine coolers. They are shipped in a robust box and are handblown. There may be issues with the glass quality.
Vampire Wine Glass
These wine glasses are weirdly designed. While the design is unusual, many wine enthusiasts find them appealing and distinctive. You can suck the wine through the straw “like a vampire.” It can be a perfect gift during the Halloween season. The glasses are made with safe borosilicate glass and are microwave friendly but can be delicate to handle.
Tipsy Wine Glasses
In these glasses, the stem is bent, giving an illusion that the glass is about to fall over. If you’re shopping for a raffle or gift for the office, we’ve got the perfect wine glasses for you. These glasses serve as a practical joke and an ideal way to trick your friends and see them go bonkers. You need to watch out that the glasses may be bent at different angles in a collection. If you fill them more than half, they may tip over.
Beaker Wine Glass
Here is a stylish wine glass for the wine lovers who prefer glasses with a stem – and they resemble a beaker. This will be a perfect gift because it is special and meaningful to scientists, chemists, doctors, nurses, or your science teacher. Or, maybe you should give it to a friend experimenting with different forms of wine.
Additionally, they are made with authentic laboratory glass and are handblown.
Miniature Wine Glasses
These are simply shot glasses; however, we can think of ways they are similar to wine glasses. We imagine them being used as embellishments on wedding tables or as a bachelor party gift. Or, buy a set of wine glasses to indulge in a little fun with that buddy who wants to taste your favorite wine just a little bit.
Aerating Wine Glass
Do you have a friend who has an obsession with wine aeration and aeration gadgetry? Then this is the perfect gift you can give to him. This is an appealing piece of glassware that can also work as a conversation starter at your hosted events. They have a unique design but are easy to break. Furthermore, cleaning them is very difficult.
Halloween Zombie Wine Glass
You must be having a friend who loves Halloween Zombie Lurch. These are usually appreciated by people with a dark sense of humor. They consist of a skeletal and made of polyresin, which gives out a spooky and dark appeal to them. They look very realistic and but are delicate to handle.
This glass is a perfect gift for someone appreciating and fantasizing about Highland games, Renaissance Festivals, Victorian novels. Such wine lovers can enjoy their wine in the original wine glass of that era. Also, the glasses are handmade and come in two varied sizes. These glasses are not transparent and traditional in design.
Hourglass Wine Glass and Martini Glass
In this glass, one side is a wine glass, while the other is a martini glass. If we look at it, it looks just like an hourglass. It’s visually appealing and a perfect gift for someone who appreciates both wine as well as loves martini. One gets two glasses in a single piece of glassware. They are handmade, and therefore some variation can be found in the glass.
Floating Wine Glass
These wine glasses look like any other traditional wine glass and float on water. They are made of Tritan that is more resistant to breakage than acrylic. These unique glasses are an excellent way to sip and enjoy your wine in a hot tub, beach, or swimming pool. One con is that white wine does not show well in them, and one can surely lose the glass in water.
Stainless Steel Unbreakable Wine Glasses
These are made of stainless steel and are unbreakable. As a result, you don’t need to worry about dropping the glass, as it will just bounce off the ground without shattering into pieces. Also, they are affordable and keep the poured wine at the same temperature.
Try Something New
In the end, we hope you enjoyed our set of unique wine glasses. While some wine connoisseurs claim to only drink from traditional wine glasses, there are plenty of opportunities to let loose and try something new.
