What’s the worst part of wine mixers? The boring attendees? That one lady who got drunk an hour in and hasn’t stopped bumping into people since? The band that only plays ‘80s Joel? Nope. It’s having to set down your glass of fancy people purple drank so that you can eat/load up your plate.
Luckily, Hammacher Schlemmer has developed a special wine glass holder for buffet connoisseurs that has a built-in neck strap. Think of it as a Baby Björn…but for a glass of $12 dollar chardonnay. So if you spot a new tray of bacon-wrapped stuffed peppers being set out, you don’t have ditch your booze to get in position to score some fresh apps. Instead, the military-grade (I assume) sling will hold your glass in place while you maneuver your way over. Because the comfort and safety of your wine is just as important as a newborn infant’s.
This is the hands-free wine glass holder that makes it easy to sample a buffet and socialize as you imbibe in your favorite vintage. The lightweight lanyard hangs comfortably around your neck, while the strong, yet flexible rubber sling firmly cradles your glass of wine and keeps it upright. As a result, both your hands are left free for two-fisted noshing, helping yourself to a second serving, and shaking hands with acquaintances. A unique gift for any wine lover, this holder fits easily in pocket or purse to take along to parties, wine tastings, or banquets. The rubber base stretches to fit over most stemware. Set of four. 38″ L x 3 1/2” W x 3″ D. (1 lb.)
And you get FOUR for $19.99!
The description outlines that “both your hands are left free for two-fisted noshing, helping yourself to a second serving, and shaking hands with acquaintances,” but I’m willing to bet that is only the beginning of the list of useful things this bad boy can help you out with.
