Last year for a Father's Day gift, my children and I gave my husband a home beer brewing kit. It was something he had mentioned previously as possibly being an interesting hobby. I knew it would appeal to his scientific side and I was right. This gift also opened the door to future no-brainer gifts, such as additional ingredients, supplies, and equipment. A gift idea that did not occur to me until I saw it on RedEnvelope.com was a set of Personalized Pub Glasses. There were actually two styles to choose from . . . these Bulldog Pub Glasses and a set of Barley Pub Glasses. Both styles were dishwasher-safe. Since we are a dog-loving family, I went with the Bulldog design.
Of all the gift ideas for men I have seen, this one was uniquely perfect for my husband. These personalized beer glasses sort of make his hobby "official" even though he is still a novice. I was able to personalize these glasses with our family name, town and state, as well as the year in which my husband started being a home brewer.
On the back of the glasses are printed the words "Sit. Stay. Drink." . . . a very hospitable message for anyone who will be sampling my husband's brew.
Although the product description states that the glasses have a 16oz capacity, I think they could comfortably hold 12oz of beer (as shown below), especially if the beer has a thick head.
My husband was extremely thrilled to received this surprise. It was not his birthday, nor was it a holiday, so it was very unexpected. Just because gifts are sometimes the best ones!
