I had some “Waitrose Essentials” Champagne flutes, which I obviously bought as a Waitrose Essentials joke, but were actually excellent and about a pound each. They managed to get destroyed on PhD graduation day.
My main driver for Champagne flutes (which will be unsurprising to anyone who’s seen my posts on the drinking threads involving fizz) is kitsch. I have a couple that were given as a birthday gift by my partner that we got when we were at Le Crazy Horse in Paris, which are a lovely shape and have the kiss motif on them, that we use when it’s just the two of us. For when there’s more than the two of us we have some LSA Polka pearlescent ones, which as @SteveSlatcher suggests, I picked up from TK Maxx for £20 for six (they usually retail at £40 for 4).
I was speaking to my sister, who hosted my parents on Christmas day. Apparently my dad managed to break four wine glasses. I may need to drag myself to Ikea and pick some of the glasses @David007 has recommended as at that breakage rate, there’s no way I’m letting him near my Zaltos (in all fairness, it runs in the family and I probably shouldn’t let me anywhere near my Zaltos either!).
