Hey gang, Valkor here. As much as I don’t mind giving/receiving gifts, I’ve always found it difficult, for starters, with the giving because I’m never sure what to get anyone; and the same can be said when people give me gifts, so on either side it’s usually a gift card or money. But if we look hard enough, especially with the interwebz literally at our fingertips, we can find the most interesting of gift just waiting to be snatched up. Thankfully I didn’t have to look very far for this next gift idea, which comes from the kind folks at The UncommonGreen; and if you’re looking for something for Valentine’s Day, wedding anniversary, or just a little something special, then I think they have just what you’re looking for in the form of UncommonGreen Glassware.
So you’re looking to commemorate the city where you met that special someone or you have a friend who has a fondness for a particular city; then take a look at what UncommonGreen Glassware can do for you. With seven styles of glasses to choose from, plus the option to have text engraved on the glass, you’ll truly brighten someone’s day or make the most out of a special event. Taken from the company’s press release:
It’s always better to give something personal, so celebrate a very meaningful moment in the city where it all happened -- or will happen -- with theUncommonGreen glassware. TheUncommonGreen makes striking contemporary barware that features stunning etched maps of top U.S. and global cities. Now the glassware can be personalized to celebrate a precious moment in a special place. Celebrate the cities where couples met and fell in love, relive special birthdays or celebrations or commemorate a special milestone.
Washington D.C. Map
Sleek, classy and great conversation starters, theUncommonGreen's Maps Glassware is decorated with intricately designed maps that wrap entirely around the glass — and from top to bottom — creating an eye-catching effect that makes any beverage more fun to prepare, serve and drink. Because the maps are etched into the surface of the glass, each piece is a stunning work of art with a unique look and feel that will last a lifetime.

To make these already-unique items truly one-of-a-kind, customers can choose any available etched city map design and customize it with a special message. Mark the place and time of a truly special occasion or moment, or engrave a name or phrase particular to each recipient. Custom text can be added to the side of the stemmed wine glasses for vino connoisseurs, to the carafes for those who love sharing and entertaining, and to the pint glasses for craft beer fanatics. For the rocks glasses, custom text can be added to the side and the bottom of the glass.

Each personalized Maps Glass is meticulously designed and made in the USA with eco-friendly manufacturing in mind, and engraved-to-order to fit the perfect mood, event and vision. For large gatherings such as weddings and corporate events, theUncommonGreen offers additional custom design services, from adding a logo to creating an entirely custom map.
Honestly, from the look of these images, the UncommonGreen glassware pieces look absolutely stunning with plenty of detail to them. I love the variety you can choose from - and the mason jars are a favorite. Plus the prices are actually reasonable, so if you're looking for something that's entirely unique and make the day - whatever day that may be - extra special, then click that logo to the right to find out more or get a set of your very own.
