When it comes to preparing for the holiday season- Christmas drinking glasses are entirely essential! This may sound like a ridiculous thing to say at first, but when you take a moment to really think things over- you may realise that glassware plays an important role in the holiday festivities. In fact- they play three important roles:
- They provide lovely accents to the household Christmas Theme
- They lighten the mood of anyone who holds them
- They give all the party guests something to sip their Christmas punch with!
I know I know that third point didn’t need to be written down- but it is very possible to run out of clean drinking glasses at a party – especially if one or two of them break. So I thought it was worth mentioning anyway.
As for that second point I made- the holidays can be hard on some people. It involves a lot of traveling, money spending, and small-talk with individuals they barely know. Therefore, it is important that every guest who comes into your home to celebrate Christmas with you feels important- and above all- loved. And having a cute (or pretty) holiday glass to put in their hand can go a long way to ensuring your guest feels all of these things and more. Particularly, if the drinking glass matches there personality; for example, if your friend really enjoys animals- then you may want to find a glass with an image of a reindeer on it. Or if they love snow- you can present them with a cup that is covered with snowflakes.
My husband and I have tons of different styled Christmas glasses in our home that range from dainty to festive and others- are just downright hilarious. But each and every one of those glasses brings a smile to someone’s face every year. 🙂
And now, I am going to show you 5 sets of Christmas drinking glasses that are guaranteed to fill you (and your future guests’) with Holiday Cheer!
Here they are!

The Christmas Tree Hiball Glasses by Spode are made from clear glass with a 22-karat gold trim, and also come in a full line of dinnerware. The company has been making and selling these signature glasses since 1938 and are a MUST HAVE for anyone who has warm and fuzzy memories of gathering around a Christmas tree with their families.
A thoroughly gorgeous product!

These wine glasses are also a creation by Spode, and are a delightful alternative to the Hibell Glasses if you prefer a grip that is thinner and light in weight. These goblets are also made from clear glass and have a 22-karat gold trim. The glassware includes a tasteful storage box as well.
NOT MACHINE WASHABLE!

These adorable glasses feature 4 cups-each with a unique silver snowflake in the middle. They are dishwasher safe and blooming perfect for throwing holiday parties, December housewarming celebrations or even just for sitting in front of the fire while you listen to your favourite Christmas song. 🙂
A MUST HAVE for sure!
Price: CAD$30.00 (Free Shipping with Amazon Prime)
Don’t worry folks- I haven’t gone completely bonkers. For many people The Nightmare Before Christmas walks hand in hand with both Halloween and Christmas Day. The beloved characters are those you can celebrate with twice a year. In fact- I know several young couples who enjoy decorating their Christmas tree in Nightmare Before Christmas paraphernalia.They even put Zero (the little ghost dog) on the very top instead of an angel. I think it’s a nifty idea- and speaking as someone who adores collecting novelty glasses- this set would make a fantastic gift! The cups are official licensed products and come in novelty boxes with peak windows; which make them easy to wrap.
So you may not want to completely overlook these two while hunting for Christmas decor!

Much like the stemless snowflake wine glasses- these goblets have traditional Christmas themes engraved on them including: a Christmas tree, a snowflake, an ornament and a Christmas present. But not only do they have objects engraved on them- they also have tender hear-ted phrases as well. Merry-Peace-Cheer and Joy. If these cups aren’t a perfect match for a holiday get together- then I don’t know what is!
A pure treasure!
