It’s not a bad idea to have steel shot cups. You could throw them at the wall, as Wintercheck suggests, or keep them pristine and be confident they’ll last a lifetime. Each set comes with four cups and is dishwasher safe. Choose between Polished Nickel-Plated, Industrial Satin Nickel-Plated, and Slate Gray Teflon.
Purchase Information:Price: $30.00

Finally, a wine glass that won’t shatter when one throws it against a wall for emphasis. There’s also a Martini set, if that’s your choice of drink. We can all thank the wondrous material silicone for helping us to avoid those annoying glass shards at home, the park, or the beach. Now all we need is a bottle-sized version to decant the wine (with an adequate stopper) and the full set would be a permanent fixture in the picnic basket.
Purchase Information:Price: $19.95

Now, don’t go thinking silhouettes on mugs are only for parents. We all know you have enough imagination to think of some pretty good options for silhouettes for friends and family (a dance move? pets? inappropriate hand gestures? etc.) and there’s no reason to not immortalize said silhouette on a mug. It’s the perfect gift that’ll seem uninspiring until they see the custom image- then it’ll be awesome. (‘oh, it’s a mug…how nice…OH-MY-GOD-it’s-a-mug-with-so-and-so-doing-the-ROBOT! HAhaha!’ etc.)

A little black and white geometry always catches the eye, and these cups from Ferm Living are no exception. However, upon first glance, a person might think ‘haven’t I seen these before?’ and that person might search their memory (and the internet) only to find an image of Masahiro Mori’s Mini Cups. Quite similar, indeed, yet there’s a sizable difference in dimensions. Ferm Living’s Geometry Cups are larger and more suited for water, tea, or coffee, while Mori’s Mini Cups are smaller and more fit for sake and spirits.
Purchase Information:Price: $21.00

As the retailer says, “Mix your drinks with a bit of math.” Just don’t start the conversation off by asking people if they’ve memorized the first hundred digits, because that’s a bit of a turn off. There’s also a Pi Kitchen Towel ($25), if that’s more your style. Glasses are etched.
Purchase Information:Price: $20.00 - 36.00

No need to wish upon a star for a fancy spoon straw, because here it is. Stir and sip your drink with the same utensil! Amazing, isn’t it? And I’m only partially being facetious, because it is actually a smart drink accessory.

So, if you like slightly-tinted glassware, such as the Future Glass Set by Peter Svarrer, check out these glasses by Klaus Rath for Stelton. Plus, good news, they’re slightly less expensive: the Tall Simply Glass set is $68* for set of 4 and the regular Simply Glass set is $45 for set of 4.
Purchase Information:Price: $45.00 - 68.00

Not many of us know how to read braille, and I’m not sure that owning these 4 cups with the lines “Be Kind,” “Breathe Deep,” “Love Yourself,” and “Make Time” will actually help us learn, but they do look nice, don’t they? The phrases are also printed on the bottom of each cup, so perhaps you can test yourself each time you use one.
Purchase Information:Price: $30.00 for s/4

If your glassware needs updating, consider these 100% recycled glass bottles turned into tumblers. Hand finished at the rim, they have an ever-so-slight color tint.
from the Green Glass Company (you may purchase glassware from their site as well, fyi).

This Edgewood cup displays a fine wood grain that plays a little with our senses- is it porcelain, or wood? It is, in fact, clean lined porcelain with a wood grain pattern, a commentary on classic Danish design. Maybe file it away as a nice gift idea?

How about a handmade tea mug with custom illustrations by Lieke of Liekeland? It’s special, for sure, as you pick what images you’d like on it and she’ll do the illustrations. Maybe it’ll even prompt a mass donation of extraneous mugs in the cabinet? It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind gift, for someone special or maybe just for yourself. Note: only a few can be made at a time, so you have be added to the wait list in hopes of being selected.
Purchase Information:Price: €45.00

How about some traditional Polish motifs for your table this winter? Monika Lubkowska-Jonas (of British design house LSA International) was inspired by the traditional folk craft of paper-cutting, and as you can see, the handmade glasses look like they’d brighten up your libations in no time. Available in a set of 4; choose between several different colors.
Purchase Information:Price: $37.50
