I’m not sure about you guys, but one of the things I look forward to the most about the holidays is putting cozy slippers on, sitting by the fire, and enjoying a nice glass of wine. (Oh, and if wine is not your thing, juice can be substituted instead!) There is something about selecting the right glass, pouring the wine in, and enjoying that very first sip that puts me in a place of happiness and relaxation.
The holidays are special, and whether you are shopping for yourself or for that special someone in your life who loves wine (like me!), holiday wine glasses can make the calm moments even more relaxing. I love collecting eclectic wine glasses, and as such, I’ve searched around for some of my favorite wine glasses for the holidays. I give you 6 wine glasses for the holidays.
These glasses are so festive and pretty, and I can imagine them at a beautiful holiday table. Not only are they colored for the holidays, they each have a beautiful holiday swirl, adding to the overall elegance. Guests will be able to pick their color, too, making the need for wine charms not an issue. So pretty and yet so simple!
I could not resist including these in the roundup. From the moment these glasses are taken out of the cabinet, the party is started. The stemless design is great for holding, and the edge is chip resistant, making these harder to break than a normal wine glass. With funny phrases like “Baked,” “Elfed Up,” and “Lit,” your guests will adore these. Note that the glasses are clear. Fill with red wine (or grape juice) to get the desired effect you see in the picture. Hilarious and fun!
If decorative elegance is more what you are going for in your gift giving, then I suggest you check out the Pfaltzgraff Winterberry collection of glasses. The wine glasses shown here have a beautiful red stem and base and a delicate holiday design wrapped around the glass part. Maybe your special someone already collects this pattern. Maybe you could start the collection for them. Whatever the case, Pfaltzgraff is a great name in glassware and a wonderful choice. Elegant and collectible!
If you are looking for cute and holiday-themed, then look no further! These wine glasses are your answer. They come six to a set and feature Christmas characters including Santa, Reindeer, Gingerbread Man, and Snowman. Each glass is only 4 inches tall, making them adorable (also please note that they are not full size wine glasses). Fun for a toast at the holiday table or for sampling favorite bottles after the meal, your special someone will love these! Cute and festive!
Stemless glasses are so popular, and there are so many great ones to choose from, but I really love this set with warm, positive holiday messages. The rims are gold, and the lettering is vivid green, red, and gold. Sayings include “May you have a very merry, bright and cheery, happy little Christmas” and “Joyous Noel.” You can’t go wrong with this set, and if you’re lucky, your special someone may even invite you to stay for a glass. Classy and elegant!
For fun holiday spirit in a full-sized glass, this set of two darling painted wine glasses is the answer. They’re hand painted and are sure to be a hit for any white elephant gift exchange or holiday party. Also, with their generous size of 16.9 ounces, your special someone will be able to relax for longer without the need to get up for a refill quite so often. Festive and fun!
