There is something about a delicate glass that encourages me to consume slightly more alcohol than is necessary. I’ve hoarded glasses for as long as I can remember and spent far more time than is healthy, in the glass isle of many a shop. Due to a shortage of cupboard space, money and Alex’s lack of enthusiasm for glass investment, it was heavily hinted that the shopping must stop. I listened (for a while) and then the festive emails started rolling in, reminding me of what I was missing out on… Well, Christmas is coming up soon. It would be rude not to take a look, wouldn’t it!?
Now, I’m not big on shots these days. I’ve spent far too many a sick day in bed, cursing the effects of one too many
in the past… This Sagaform Schnapps Carafe with 4 Glasses, would make a lovely gift for someone
who is not such a lightweight as myself.
Available from Firebox for £21.99 – Free delivery.
I don’t know about you, but I’m forever sloshing my Martini all over the place!
The Riedel Vitis Martini Glass is shaped perfectly to help aid my drunken spillage…
Available from Heals at the hefty price tag of £31 or they are slightly cheaper for a pair at Barmans.
– Keep an eye out on ebay as they often pop up.
Who says wine glasses need to stand tall?
The Riedel ‘O’ Viognier & Chardonnay Wine Tumbler is a chic and easy to store option.
Available here in a pack of three from Riedel – £25
Moustaches are all the rage at the moment, what with Movember being high on a lot people’s thoughts.
These cute glasses feature a range of actual 24 carat gold moustaches. A bit pricey, but great fun for all.
Available from Heals – £15 each.
Now, I’m off to check my bank balance! Enjoy your weekend x
