For the heavy drinker in your life

by Jessie K on November 12, 2009

I love this time of year when my mailbox becomes stuffed with all sorts of glorious catalogs featuring wonderfully exciting crap I didn’t realize I needed.

Jake and I came across this little gem in the Kotula (“The Guys With the Goods”) catalog last night. It will make a dandy gift for the heavy drinker in your life.


It’s called the GIANT WINE GLASS ($12.99) and it holds an entire bottle wine — “Just the thing for a cozy night in,” reads the copy.

You know those nights when you’re at a friend’s house and everyone is slowly, politely sipping their wine but you can’t help but guzzle yours because you think you might have a little problem? No?  I don’t know anything about that either. But you’re too embarrassed to say “More please” because you know everyone already thinks you’re a drunk?  The Giant Wine Glass removes this painful social stigma. The Giant Wine Glass allows you to slump in your Lay-Z-Boy and drink an entire bottle of your favorite Fetzer without having to get up once. No one can say, “There goes ‘Jezzie,’ helping herself to another glass of my $7.99 wine.” No one will notice how drunk you are.   No one will notice you, period.  Not if you stay very, very quiet and sip your “grape drank” like the refined and sophisticated lady you are.  Shhh. I won’t tell anyone. Your secret is safe with me. Happy Holidays.

This is great…they also have a Giant Beer Glass that holds up to five cans of beer! I’ll get the wine glass and buy the beer glass for my husband!
