Retro Beverage Glasses Filled With Holiday Candy Make Great Gifts

Filling A Vintage Beverage Glass With Candy 
 Holiday Gift Giving

Here's a fun Retro Christmas idea which is so easy and affordable.  Fill  vintage glass tumblers with holiday candy, add clear cellophane and a ribbon and bada have a great sentimental gift for  friends and family. (Substitute plastic for children). You can find these glasses on online auctions in Antique Malls and at Flea Markets.

For friends that enjoy vintage barware you can do the same thing with vintage cocktail shakers and bar glassware. 

Of course red, green and white vintage glasses are just perfect for holiday gift giving with or without candy inside.  

Souvenir state glasses are clever gifts which you can tailor to the person you are gifting.

 You can find many souvenir glasses at my shop Kitsch n Stuff in The Collinsville Antiques Center of New Hartford, CT

  1. Great idea! I see a lot of beautiful retro glassware on my outings. Entire sets are getting harder and harder to find, especially the ones with the caddy.
