Glassware

Moving into a new home or apartment is always a good excuse to update essential kitchen items like cookware, dinnerware and glassware. Housewarming registries typically come hand in hand with a housewarming party, so adding glassware to your registry is a smart move, especially when you pick a set that includes both high and low ball glasses. We love the classic yet elevated feel of this tumbler and rocks glass set.
