Are you crazed this last week before Christmas trying to get all shopping done, cookies baked and cards mailed? Well, I can help with at least one of these.
In fact, as the resident girl geek over here at glass.com and USGlass magazine, I’d be happy to share some great last minute glass gift ideas with you…glass gifts. All of them involve glass in rather unique applications. Other than having bought a few to try them out, I am sharing just because I liked them. Maybe you will too. Happy shopping and best wishes for a happy holiday season:
For Truly Transparent Emails:
…They are yours to create with the clear keyboard. It features clear keys and a clear base, along with RGB backlighting. The lighting really pops due to the transparency of the keycaps. Works with both Macs and PCs. What glass fan could resist? Check it out here.
For the Traditionalist:
Decorate your holiday trees with ornaments that are each a work of art. In fact, we bought some of these beautiful works of art ourselves for the Glass.com Christmas tree this year. Each ornament is made of blown glass and is hand-painted. A fun way to decorate the tree—but not cheap. Ornaments average in the $35 range and each is exquisite. Check them out here.
For Those Blowin’ in the Wind:
Handcrafted by artisans and made with natural wood and glass. These wind chimes are made of delicate cut glass to form a rainbow of color that has soothing and beautiful sound. We’ve had them hung outside our offices for the past two weeks and they’ve held up great… greeting me each morning with a soft symphony to start the day. Check it out here.
For the Auto Glass Installer Who Can’t Leave Go:
This glass gift is a must. Rather than replacing glass, you can drink from it. These wine glasses are made in Italy from recycled glass—one look at the green tint and imperfections and you’ll see recycling at its best.
Over the years, we’ve bought the beer mugs and the tumblers as novelties. But a word of caution, they are not lightweights as the glasses are a bit on the heavy side. But when you are used to lifting whole windshields, it’s a non-issue.
For When Baby It’s Cold Outside:
You can warm it up with this fireplace made sophisticated and stylish with a certain clear and modern material (Hint: It’s glass.). It’s a romantic fire table featuring not only a glass surround but also blue fire rocks in the base for a pop of color. Check it out here.
