"For some reason I expected this to be a cheap glass as a fun present for my friend. But it turned out to be a very, very quality wine glass with beautiful engraving!! I was pleasantly surprised."
"I have bought several of these recently as gifts and they were the hit of the party!"
"I got this as a Mother's Day gift for my "mommy dos"- the lady that helps me with parenting no matter how tough it gets. My kids adore her, she has become my best friend, and I appreciate her so much. This made her light up when she opened it and she loooooves filling it with wine!"
"We use these wine glasses every day! My boyfriend had a recent recurring case of butterfingers and broke a couple of ours, so we ordered 2 of these to replace them. They're perfect. They're a little on the smaller side but sturdy. They're great for casual use but also feel special."
"Bought for a shower gift!"
Stemless wine glasses are quaint, attractive and perfect for weddings or other special occasions. The only thing that can make them even more perfect is having them customized with etched monogram designs. Shutterfly makes it refreshingly easy to turn regular wine glasses into customized works of art.
Wine is notoriously finicky and can be ruined if it is not stored properly. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind when storing a prized bottle of wine for future use:
• Keep it away from the light. Ultraviolet rays from sunlight and fluorescent lamps can filter in through the bottle can cause the wine to develop an unpleasant aroma.
• Avoid fluctuations in temperature. Exposing your wine to significant changes in temperature will cause it to age prematurely. Most varieties of wine do well when stored at 54⁰ Fahrenheit.
• Manage humidity. Try to keep your wine storage area at around 70% humidity, if possible. This will help keep evaporation at a minimum and prevent the cork from drying out. Storing corked bottles on their side will also help prevent the corks from drying.
• Store for the appropriate period of time. Although there is a well-known saying that wine improves over time, this is not always the case. Some types of wine actually degrade in quality over time, so it is important to follow the appropriate storage recommendations for each type of wine you purchase.
Isolate your wine. Storing anything with a strong odor near your wine could taint its flavor.
Since wine is commonly served at weddings, it is a good idea to present wedding guests with stemless glasses as wedding favors. Have the stemless wine glasses personalized with your initials or a favorite saying so that they can be used as home décor once the special event is over. Dishwasher-safe bar and glassware also make great gifts for the wine enthusiasts in your life.
While you’re customizing your stemless wine glasses, why not expand your glassware collection by creating personalized glass plates, glass prints, mason jars, and cups for your home? Custom wine glasses also make great party favors for wine tasting parties. Plan an evening with friends to blind test different varietals for aromas and flavors.
