Redefining Bar Essentials

Too many of our friends have succumbed to the disposable fashion mindset: buying “basic” glassware because it looks good, is less expensive, and is readily available at the mall. The problem? Looks can be deceiving. Dime-a-dozen glasses can shatter at the thought of a common toast (or a heavy-handed wash)—and ultimately cost you more in both dollars and social snafus.

Custom monogrammed crystal wear may just be the perfect gift. It’s classy. It’s beautiful. It shows you put some thought into your choice, unlike all the...
