Designs by Lolita was founded back in 2001 when Lolita herself designed unique hand-painted festive martini glasses, each with a drink recipe painted on the bottom. The glasses came to fruition in 2004 and launched a whole product line of painted glasses, gifts and more.
My first encounter with Designs by Lolita came many a'year ago, back when I lived in California and worked in a shopping mall. I remember seeing these gorgeously painted martini glasses on display, with at least one for just about every occasion. Birthday, Christmas, sports, summertime, and so many more, they were fabulous! And of course the Lolita signature recipe on the bottom of the glasses and packaging always stuck with me. Have you seen these beautiful pieces?
Holiday Beer is a 20 oz hand painted glass in the classic pilsner style, perfect for all of your brews! It's nice and heavy, no flimsy mass-market glassware here. Since each piece is handcrafted it is recommended that all hand-painted pilsner glasses be hand washed and not put into the dishwasher.
I absolutely love that this glass is dual-sided! the front, as you see in the photo above, has the word "Holiday" painted and bejeweled in festive colors. The back is completely frosted with the word "beer" etched into it with drops of white glittery-goodness all around. Manly enough for tough guys, yet feminine enough for the ladies. The best of both worlds! Pilsner glasses retail for $26 each.
Speaking of double-sided, the Naughty and Nice ornament follows suit. Whether Santa's writing your name on the good list or not, this ornament tells the world (or at least your household) your stance! The front, like the pilsner glass, is painted and jeweled in the word "Naughty," while the back is frosted with the word "nice" etched in. Superb quality in glass work, painting, and assembly, I'm impressed! Everything about this ornament ball exudes elegance, from the beautiful artwork to the snazzy details like the spiral decorative hook. It comes topped with a big green sparkly over sized bow to finish the deal. Glass Ornament Balls retail for $16 each.
Designs by Lolita also offers a variety of drink glasses to suit your poison of choice, as well as gifts to go along with them. These glasses make excellent gifts, with one sure to fit each personality on your gift list!
