We all know someone who’s constantly breaking their wine glasses. And we all also know someone who prefers to drink their wine from a box. They very well might be the same person, and, who knows, that person very well may be you. If you happen to be looking for holiday gifts for that person, then you should know about Pubware and Boxxle.
Pubware is a line of unbreakable drinkware that looks and feels exactly like glass. These glasses are dishwasher and microwave safe, BPA free, won’t haze or crack, and even holds temperature longer than glassware. Everything from standard pint glasses to a variety of stemmed and stemless wine glasses are available, and there are currently specials on the teardrop motif glasses on the site (as low as $20 for a set of four). Seriously, these may be the last glasses you ever need to buy.
Another extremely cool gift is the Boxxle, which is basically a high-end dispenser for boxed wine. Made from plastic and stainless steel, the Boxxle holds the wine-filled bag from the box of wine. The dispenser is at the top of the appliance instead of the bottom of the box, meaning that you can place the glass on the countertop under the dispenser instead of fumbling with a spout on the edge of the counter. It also compresses the bag as it’s being emptied, meaning that you get every last drop of wine. It’s not cheap at $99, but it’s a whole lot classier than keeping a box of wine on your counter!
