Halloween is right around the corner and you know what that means: the holidays are right behind it, coming in hot and laden with anxiety. Now is the time for some "pre-holiday decompression" which is really just a fancy way of saying "relax, eat all of the leftover Halloween candy you can get your hands on, and drink a lot of wine." After all, the answer to centering yourself before all of the holiday madness hits is hiding at the bottom of a bottle and today's list of goodies will only help to get you there faster.
How much fun are these psychedelic wine glasses?! Unbreakable, insulated, and environmentally conscious, this drinkware is exactly what you need for getting tipsy once all of that holiday anxiety starts to creep in. Plus they're dishwasher, microwave, and oven-safe if you're the kind of gal that likes to warm up her wine in a kitchen appliance.
