Aura Glass 2-pack with Coasters

Aura Glass 2-Pack with Coasters ($59.95)

Is there a vino-lover in your life? This set of wine glasses makes an ideal (and affordable!) gift, as the glasses sit tilted on tables, thanks to a steel ball that allows them to rotate with a flick of the wrist. Both glasses come with a wooden coaster that allows you to sit them up straight, and make them stackable for excellent space-saving storage. Aerating a glass of your favorite wine-lover's favorite vino has never been so easy or fun to watch.
