Start With Personalized Glassware
Without the right glassware, happy hour is just another time of day. Help your favorite bar owner stock their shelves with personalized beer glasses including mugs, pilsner and pint glasses and an assortment of cocktail glasses, shot glasses and wine glasses that you can design just for them. Engrave your barkeep’s name, initials or a holiday message of your choice, and they will surely think of you with each sip.

Stemless wine glasses are also becoming more popular because of their unique look and versatility. Use them for wine tastings or fill them with mixed drinks.
