Whether you have a fully stocked wet bar or one little kitchen shelf, register for drinkware that complements your style, and turns every sip into an occasion.
There are certain drinkware rules you’ll probably want to follow (think large-bowled for burgundies, flutes for champagne). Other rules may bend to your own aesthetic sense, and the type of entertaining you love best.
In addition to look and function, keep the all-important clumsy factor in mind when registering for drinkware. Some glasses are ultra-fragile and require hand washing with a delicate touch. Others are dishwasher safe and can withstand the adorable klutziness you’re known for. There are tons of gorgeous drinkware sets out there in every shape, size, and color. Here are those we’ve deemed 2018’s best.
