theUncommonGreen: Cool Glassware Alert!

I recently came across some cool glassware made by theUncommonGreen and wanted to share them. They are etched glasses that can be customized to showcase your hometown, a wine region, a college, math & science, you name it!

Founder Brian Johnson started theUncommonGreen in 2009 to make everyday products that meld artistry with functionality, practicality with wit, and style with sustainability. His background in mechanical engineering, industrial design, and product development inspired him to blend high-performance industrial materials into designs for the home.

I found his glassware inspiring—they are engraved in stunning detail and would make great gifts for friends and family!  For cities and towns, you can even customize them if you don’t see your location listed. Here are a few examples:

Head to the theUncommonGreen and shop to your heart’s content.
