The Ultimate Glassware Guide

Picture this: The scene is set. Candles are lit, soft music is playing, and his/her favorite bottle of wine is sitting on the table. All is ready to go and you finally breathe a sigh of relief — until you realize you don’t have any nice glassware for the occasion.

But something about sipping wine from a decade-old mug seems like a bit of a buzzkill tonight.

Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered! Check out these five stunning glassware sets to impress your loved ones, and any other guest you may have in your home in the near future. You’ll thank us later.
