The glass arrived very well packaged with bubble wrap and in card that can be recycled – which is always a plus for me. It was in mint condition when it was opened. There isn’t really a gift box per se and the glass is just in a small white cardboard box – maybe that could be an improvement if this is for a gift (a luxury gift box can be purchased additionally for £3).
Who is stuck thinking of what to buy their husband – the man who has everything! I usually turn to personalised gifts because they seem to mean so much more.
So what better than a personalised gift that can actually be used on a day-to-day basis and also, one which can hold alcohol!!!
The Getting Personal gift website has lots of personalised gift ideas to choose from, but I really like this pint glass.
On the popular theme of “Keep Calm and….” – this pint glass says “Keep Calm and Drink”.
You simply have to type in who the glass is for (in this case “Daddy”) and the link clearly tells you how many characters the name can be (12 characters in total).
If you don’t want to have a personalised message at the bottom of the glass, it reads, “Keep Calm and Drink Beer”, but I wanted my husband to know who was responsible for him turning to drink – he he! – and who the gift will be from – So, ours says your 3 little stars xxx!! There aren’t many characters for this message (25 characters), but the key message is Keep Calm and Drink!
The glass itself is a conical-shaped pint glass, but I like the fact it is of really thick glass. It feels like this glass will be hard-wearing and robust.
We haven’t washed this glass too many times yet, but again, the etching of the message is within the glass, so it seems that the message will last a very long time – at least until Daddy’s little stars have grown up I hope!
Overall, the Keep Calm and Drink personalised glass is a great gift for the person who has everything in your life!
