Fred and Friends Glasses

Drinking glasses are always a really practical gift to choose, but these have the added bonus of not only being novel, but being of high quality with a contemporary design edge.

The Hopside Down Glass is a traditionally shaped beer glass but with an upside down bottle shape inside that holds your drink. Fred and Friends love to use optical illusions in their product designs and this is a great example.

The Bubushkups are not only a colorful and fun design, but just like the images on the glasses, they stack the same as Russian matryoshka dolls so are space saving. The glasses come in 3 sizes of 8, 10, and 14 ounce volume.

The Polluted Glass comes in a set of 2 and has a mischievous hazardous waste drum design.

The Bombs Away Shot Glasses come in a set of 2 and just like the Hopside Down Glass, they have a shape inside the typical glass shape where the drink is contained. This time in the shape of a bomb with a frosted glass finish.

The Cool Shooters are actually shot glass molds. Made with food grade silicone rubber, you simply fill the molds with water or juice and pop them in the freezer to set. Cool Shooters come in a set of 4.

The Heads Up Glasses come in a set of 2, a boy face and a girl face. These are quirly, fun glasses that have optical illusion designs. When the glass is upright the faces are smiling, when the glass is upside down the faces are frowning.

The Wine Stein is another optical illusion, just like the Hopside Down Glass and the Bombs Away Shot Glasses. This time the outer glass is in the shape of a beer stein, but the drink is actually held in an inner wine glass.

Bottoms Up is a 2 piece shot glass set that is yet another clever optical illusion. When the glasses are upright they read drink, when turned upside down they read drunk.

Any of these Fred and Friends glasses would make excellent gifts for people who love cool contemporary design and quirky, fun items for their home.
