Why cordial glasses make great Christmas gifts

Have you ever thought of giving a set of cordial glasses as a Christmas gift?  No?  Why not?  They actually make for great Christmas gifts (or really, for any time of year).  Obviously, they’re not suitable for just anyone on your Christmas gift list, but for people who may be hard to buy for, they might be perfect.  Here are half-a-dozen reasons why cordial glasses make great Christmas gifts.

  1. There are a lot of different styles, so you can buy something that reflects the personality of the recipient.  You can choose between stem or no stem, color, tapering, size, and other options.  You don’t have to be worried that you’re giving a boring gift!
  2. They come in range of prices, from inexpensive Dublin Collection Crystal Coridal Glasses (around $20) to pricey Riedel Vinum Cognac-Hennessy Glasses (around $160), so you can pick and choose a set based upon your budget.
  3. Many people – especially younger twenty-somethings who graduated from college within the past few years – may not already own a nice cordial glass set.  They may own shot glasses, but who wants to serve a nice cognac at a formal dinner in glasses with sports team logos on the sides?  Of course, cordial glasses don’t have to be formal, but they are an improvement over your run-of-the-mill glassware.
  4. Cordial glasses can be ideal gifts for business colleagues or even a boss.  You can buy a set which is classy enough to not feel cheap, yet formal enough not to seem overly sentimental.
  5. A cordial glass set is something that a person can appreciate getting as a gift because he or she might otherwise not consider buying it for him/herself.  Why not make the first move and give one to someone else?
  6. In a gift box, they don’t take up a lot of space and are therefore easy to transport.  This eliminates at least some of the hassle of gift buying.  It also means that the recipient won’t have to struggle much to find space to store them.
  7. People can own multiple sets of cordial glasses, so it’s not a big problem if you give them as a gift to someone who already has a set.  If the person already has a formal set, give something sleek and modern.  If the person already has a nice crystal set, perhaps a set with some bright colors will do.  Give cordial glasses that have interesting designs or styles and you can almost be assured that your gift will be a memorable one.

In any case, ponder these reasons and head for the main list of cordial glasses to browse for your favorite.
