I have this relative that just can’t seem to stop talking. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I don’t think it’s a very good characteristic either. You see, she loves being the center of attention, especially at family parties, but it just sort of kills the mood for the other people who can’t get in a word edgewise. A fine and fun solution? These Wine Hourglasses.
The good thing about the Wine Hourglasses is that they aren’t really hour glasses–rather, they’re more like ten-minute-glasses that you can fill to the brim with wine (or with your favorite drink.) You can also use it to create a sort of rule at family functions: each person gets to speak as long as there’s sand still running in his or her glass.
What’s more, they really add to the festiveness of whatever occasion with their fun colors. You can also go for the His/Her Goblets if it’s just a party of two.
Drink in the moment with these captivating wine glasses, designed with a working hourglass that celebrates the beauty of time spent toasting food, wine and friendship. Flip a glass to spark its timer–and the table conversation–over vibrant streams of sand swishing and crashing for ten minutes a side. With every ounce poured, a bottle of your favorite vintage tastes that much sweeter as it makes its way around the table in decadent design.
Bold and interactive, this set of four brings good taste (and great fun) to the table.
The Wine Hourglasses are available from Uncommon Goods for $75.
