One of our favorite things to do on a beach vacation is, obviously, relax on the beach. While the kids play in the surf, we’ll spread out a blanket and kick up our feet.
Of course, no beach day is complete without something cool and refreshing to sip. The only problem is that it’s hard to find somewhere to set our drinks so that they won’t spill. Sand doesn’t exactly make for a smooth surface.
We often stick to reusable water bottles, but when we want to drink something a little more fun, like a bottle of wine or a tropical cocktail, pouring it in a water bottle just isn’t the same.
Apparently, we’re not the only ones who have had this problem, and someone has done something about it. There is now a wine glass that has been created expressly for the purpose of sipping your favorite vino at the beach.
These wine glasses don’t look too strange when you see them setting in the sand, but you might wonder where the base of the glass is. We see the part that holds the liquid and the stem, but then what?
That’s where things get a little interesting. You know how you stake a beach umbrella in the sand? It’s pretty much like that. Not only can you stick this wine glasses in sand, but you can also stick them in the snow or the grass, which makes them perfect for pretty much any outdoor activity including camping and concerts in the park.
It gets even better. These wine glasses actually float too! That’s right. While you hang out with friends in the pool, your wine glasses can float right alongside you.
The glasses are made of BPA-free acrylic and they’re dishwasher safe. They come in 8 different colors and two different styles. While they’re called wine glasses, you could pour any drink you want inside and not have to worry about it spilling.
See these wine glasses in action in the video below.
This video has over 12,000 comments on Facebook, many of which are people saying things like “gimme” and “we need these.”
Amazon customers have confirmed in their reviews that these glasses really work. One person wrote, “Love it! It really does float without spilling.” Another customer wrote, “I’ve ordered this before and am so happy with it I ordered again.”
While a few people have said that the glasses seem to want to tip in the water, other customers say they float without any problem. Regardless, if you’re headed to the beach, we didn’t see any complaints about these wine glasses tipping over in the sand. For about $10 each at Amazon, they seem worth trying out.
Where would you use these wine glasses? At the pool, the beach, camping, somewhere else? Would you pour wine in them, or would you use them for a different beverage?
