One of my favorite cocktails is the Bee’s Knees, and I made some for friends recently and realized: I didn’t have the right kind of glass! I served them in the typical martini glass, which will do in a pinch, but really the drink calls for an old-timey, wide-mouthed champagne glass. I did some digging and discovered that the name of that glass is the “coupe” — and that there’s this amazing company I found on Amazon called The History Company that sells a TON of old glasses inspired by (copied from?) historical spots (like the Algonquin), movies (like Casablanca), and people (like Zelda Fitzgerald). So: I’ve got some coupe glasses from The History Company on my gift list this year, but it also occurs to me that they would be a great gift for a lot of different people, from drinkers who collect interesting glasses, to history buffs/old movie buffs, to people who may be interested in portion control (the glasses of yore were much smaller than today’s glasses!). I particularly like that there are a bunch of sets of only two glasses for $24 — great for the person who doesn’t want to commit a ton of cabinet space to a glass you won’t use often. The pictured set (inspired by Casablanca) comes in a set of 2 for $24, and a set of 4 for $44 (not eligible for Prime, sadly). (OOH – looks like the company’s website also offers stuff for your office, like desk chairs inspired by FDR’s chair.)
