Why stick to a regular wine glass when you can have custom engraved wine glasses instead? Engraving adds a more personal touch to the glass and is also ideal for gift giving. After all, people love to know that you’ve been thinking about them. Anything personalized does exactly that.
There are many different wine glasses to choose from, so this list rounds up the best of the best. Some of them are appealing because of the engraving approach, while others have unusual features that make them perfect for some types of wine.
We've also found some great customized stemless glasses to check out as well.
On The Rox Drinks Glass
Let’s start off with something simple. This On the Rox Drinks Glass holds 12.75 ounces of wine and has a simple monogrammed style. The listing shows an example of each monogram option, so you know exactly what you’re getting beforehand. The piece is even dishwasher safe.
Initial Etched Wine Glass
This Initial Etched Wine Glass might look familiar, as it uses the same single letter monogram style. There are also some differences. The font is the first of these. These glasses use a smaller font size and a style that is a little more common. The glasses themselves are larger too, holding up to 14 ounces of wine.
Monogrammed Engraved Wine Glass Set
This Monogrammed Wine Glass Set is a good alternative to the previous entries. The featured monogram is much more complex. It even includes a name as well as a monogrammed letter. An even more interesting part is the engraving approach. This glass uses deep etching, which basically chisels out the engraving. The end result is stunning.
Gypsy Red Wine Glass
The listing promotes this Gypsy Red Wine Glass as a personalized wedding gift, but that’s not your only option. The name and the title on the glass can be customized to suit your preferences. You could even choose to have a surname in the bottom position.
Classic Celebrations White Wine Glass
It’s hard to go wrong with something like this Classic Celebrations White Wine Glass. The size and shape make the glass perfect for many situations, as does the engraving. There are 10 different monogram styles to choose from. These can include 1, 2 or 3 initials, depending on your preference.
Wine For Two Oversized Wine Glass
As the name suggests, this Wine for Two Oversized Wine Glass isn’t your regular wine glass. It can hold a full 750 ml bottle of wine (roughly the amount of 4 regular wine glasses). It could be used as a glass if desired, although you may want to consider using straws. The glass would also be a great place to store wine corks.
Sencillo Wine Glass With Stem
This Sencillo Wine Glass With Stem is an example of how straightforward personalized gifts can be. The glass has a single initial engraved upon it. There are 10 font types to choose from and a preview feature so that you can see which looks best. You can also include a gift message on the packing slip. That’s perfect if you plan to send the glass directly to the planned recipient.
Personalized Family Crest Wine Glass
This Personalized Family Crest Wine Glass looks amazing. It can be engraved with any word that has between 2 and 12 characters. The deep carving techniques helps to make the engraving stand out even more, creating something that is truly unique.
Engraved Champagne Toasting Glass
This Engraved Champagne Toasting Glass follows the same deep etching style as the previous example. As part of this, the background to the carved image is engraved out, making the text stand out from the rest. You’re able to choose a name and a title (e.g. bridesmaid or best friend) to go on the glass.
Iguala Wine Glass With Stem
The Iguala Wine Glass With Stem doesn’t look particularly unusual. It’s just a basic wine glass with engraved text. The cool thing is that you can completely customize the text. You have 3 lines to work with and can choose the font as well. The site even has a preview feature, helping you to see what the finished product will look like.
Miramar Wine Glass With Stem
This Miramar Wine Glass With Stem comes from the same company as the previous example. It includes the same ability to specify up to 3 lines of text, along with the font type. You also get to choose a pattern to go above the text. There are 10 of these available, with themes like vacation, USA and over the hill.
Short Stemmed Wine Glass Set
Most wine glasses have long stems, but that’s not essential. This Short Stemmed Wine Glass Set shows that a shorter stem can work just as well. If a wine glass is going to break, it’s normally at the stem, so these glasses should be more resilient. They’ll also be more difficult to tip over.
Silver Eiffel Tower Wine Glass
Wine glasses don’t need to be the same old thing. There are some unusual alternatives out there, like this Silver Eiffel Tower Wine Glass. The glass can be customized too, with a single initial.
Rhode Valley Long Stem Wine Glasses
The shape of these Rhode Valley Wine Glasses is a little different than normal. The glasses can hold 14 ounces of wine each and they’d be perfect for drinking white wine. In fact, the shape of the glass is designed to help aerate the wine and improve its flavor.
Oversized Wine Glass
This Oversized Wine Glass is impressive, holding almost 29 ounces of wine. Titanium reinforcing is used on the stem to ensure it can hold the weight. You’re able to personalize the front and the back of the glass with up to 8 lines of text. There are even various graphics to choose from.
Crystal Red Wine Glass
Wine aficionados know that wine glasses need to be chosen carefully. The glass can have a notable impact on how the wine tastes. This Crystal Red Wine Glass is based on that principle, with a design that’s specifically tailored toward red wine drinkers. The crystal style adds some elegance to the piece, making it especially appealing as a gift.
Crystal White Wine Glass
This Crystal White Wine Glass is in the same collection as the previous example. The difference is the glass shape. This time, the piece is focused on white wine. The variations are subtle, but regular wine drinkers would notice the flavor impacts.
Burgundy Wine Glass
The first interesting part about this Burgundy Wine Glass is the color (surprise surprise). The reddish shade makes the glass look more interesting, without detracting from the overall appearance. The glass is also on the small side, just holding 6 ounces of wine. That size might work well for people who drink their wine slowly.
Smoky Brown Wine Glass
This Smoky Brown Wine Glass comes from the same product line as the previous one. It is 6 ounces as well and has the same visual style. The main difference is simply the color choice. You might even get some glasses in each color if you want a more complex gift.
Smoky Green Wine Glass
You could also consider this Smoky Green Wine Glass. Like the other glasses in the product line, you’re able to personalize the piece with up to 6 lines of text on the front and another 6 on the back. Personalization does cost and the price increases as you add more to the glass. Still, the glass itself is inexpensive, so the process might be worth it.
Home Is Where Mom Is Wine Glass
This Home is Where Mom is Wine Glass has an interesting style. Most of the information on the glass is vinyl, including the word Mom and the lines above and below the date. You’re able to specify a single line of text for the front and/or a line for the back. These will be engraved.
Hammered Gold Base Wine Glass
This Hammered Gold Base Wine Glass offers a good balance between appearance and price. It’s a relatively inexpensive wine glass, but the hammered gold base helps to make it stand out. The front and the back of the glass can both be personalized with up to 4 lines of text. There are other products in the range too, if you wanted to create a larger gift.
Luigi Bormioli Bordeaux Wine Glass
Anyone who loves Bordeaux will be pleased with this Luigi Bormioli Bordeaux Wine Glass. The piece has a very distinctive shape, which allows the wine to get just the right amount of oxygen. The glass is also reinforced with titanium. That titanium dramatically reduces the risk of breakage.
Luigi Bormioli Magnifico White Wine Glass
This Luigi Bormioli Magnifico White Wine Glass comes from the same product range as the previous example. Both glasses are designed to be elegant glassware that can still be used on a daily basis. The personalization is flexible. You can choose up to 4 lines of text on the front of the glass and the same on the back.
Riedel Veritas Chardonnay Wine Glasses
I love the way that these Riedel Veritas Chardonnay Wine Glasses look. While there’s nothing incredibly unique about the design, the combination of shape and font simply works well. This is another product with plenty of customization options, so you can choose precisely what the glasses say.
Fusion Wine Glass
This Fusion Wine Glass is a little bit different. The unusual design looks good visually and would make this an enjoyable glass to use. The style also makes this an incredibly resilient wine glass. It’s the perfect choice for anyone who is a little clumsy.
Bell Wine Glass
It’s easy to see how this Bell Wine Glass would make a popular gift. The design makes it stand out from other wine glasses, especially with the shape of the stem. The glass can be customized with up to 4 lines of text on the front and the same on the back of the glass.
Diamond Cut Crystal Wine Set
If you can’t give real diamonds, what about something like this Diamond Cut Crystal Wine Set? The glasses look beautiful and are very functional. Adding your own engraving creates a very personal gift.
Silver Metallic Edge Wine Glass
The unusual wine glass styles are appealing, but sometimes you want something a little more conventional – like this Silver Metallic Edge Wine Glass. The glass holds 15 ounces of wine, making it a good size for most events.
Vera Wang Peplum Goblet
Adding your own unique engraving makes this Vera Wang Peplum Goblet an amazing gift. Honestly though, the goblet would work well without any customization at all. If nothing else, this certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill wine glass.
Wedgwood Bande Wine Glasses
Wine glasses are fascinating. There really are so many different styles out there. These Wedgwood Bande Wine Glasses are another example of that pattern. They have an unusual glass shape, combined with the band and personal engraving.
Riesling Zinfandel Wine Glasses
These Riesling Zinfandel Wine Glasses may look typical, but they’re intentionally lighter than many other types of wine glass. This makes them particularly good for white wine. Despite the lightness, the glasses are still dishwasher safe and can be engraved on the front and the back.
Waterford Lismore Encore White Wine Goblets
There have been a few different goblet-style glasses on the list so far, but these Waterford Lismore Encore White Wine Goblets do still stand out. There is simply an elegance to the design. The personalization just makes them that much more special. The same site has a red wine version that has the same general style and a slightly different shape.
Waterford Lismore Essence Red Wine Goblets
These Waterford Lismore Essence Red Wine Goblets are another style that you could choose. They’re considered goblets as well, although they’re not as dramatic as the previous examples. The engraving looks especially stunning. The name Waterford Lismore Essence is a reference to Waterford crystal and the Lismore Essence style. It’s clear that you’re getting a quality product.
Riedel Veritas Pinot Wine Glasses
These Riedel Veritas Pinot Wine Glasses are yet another option with a different style. The bulb-like shape makes them seem both elegant and distinctive. The glasses hold 13 ounces of wine each and can be personalized with up to 8 lines on the front and the back.
Riedel Vinum Wine Glasses
If you don’t want to go all out, these Riedel Vinum Wine Glasses are a good choice. The diamond shape of the monogram makes the glasses particularly interesting. You can also choose a single letter for the monogram if you would prefer that.
Crystalize Turbulence Wine Glass
It’s easy to see where this Crystalize Turbulence Wine Glass gets its name from. The swirled pattern on the glass makes it more interesting visually, without being excessive. There are 2 different versions of the glass to choose from. The pictured option holds 12 ounces of wine, while the other holds 18 ounces. Both are designed for red wine, but you could drink white wine out of them too.
Pixel Heart Wine Glass Set
I love how this Pixel Heart Wine Glass Set has been designed. The set seems like it would be perfect for anyone who is a little bit of a geek – or just for people who want something different. Each glass can be personalized with a single name, up to 12 characters long. An even better feature is that the glasses can have different names, making them a good gift for a couple.
Vintage Birthday Gold Wine Glasses
These Vintage Birthday Gold Wine Glasses are more than just personalized glasses. The golden tint makes them immediately noticeable. The word vintage will always be included on the glass, but you get to choose the year and the other 2 lines of text.
Hexagonal Wine Glass
The most obvious feature of this Hexagonal Wine Glass is the shape. It’s very unusual to see flat edges on a wine glass, yet the style works well. The classes can be personalized with 1 line of cursive font or 2 lines of block font. An even more interesting aspect is the etching technique. The style creates a frosted glass section on the glass. This makes the text easier to read than most other etching techniques.
