Confession: If I don’t have a hostess gift, the first place I look is the cabinet full of wine bottles I have  received as hostess gifts myself. Sure, it looks like a fine, old vintage–but that’s because I haven’t had a party since 2005. Oops. But here’s one gift I wouldn’t let out of my cold, condensation-frosted fingers: a handblown glassware cup with a great story.

We love glassybaby’s votive candles, which grew from mom-of-three Lee Rhodes’ battle with cancer and her desire to spread hope and serenity. So it’s only natural that we’d love the idea of getting to drink out of the gorgeous handmade glass drinkers which are tumblers produced by their artisans. Each of these gorgeous glassybaby glasses is hand-blown and perfect for sipping, especially when you consider that 10 percent of each sale is donated to the Department of Veterans Affairs to support the health needs of those who have fought for our country. You can even buy the drinkers in ready made gifts sets with coordinated but mixed color combos

If that weren’t enough, they all have sophisticated names inspired by drinks, like limoncello, single malt, julep, and hops. Mmm. Whatever you drink, giving tastes good.
