Gift Tip #44: Champagne Flutes

With New Years Eve coming in a few days, I am now thinking of poppin' a little bubbly for 2011 and good champagne can be had in any container but looks so much better in a pretty flute. There are classics to be had at Tiffany & Company, Williams-Sonoma or even Target but for something a little special, why not splurge on handcrafted champagne flutes. Give these flutes to the one you will kiss into the new year!

Fun facts:

  • Dom Perignon a Benedictine monk at the Abbey of Hautvillers invented champagne.
  • The pressure in a bottle of champagne is 90 pounds per square inch about three times that in an automobile tire.
  • The famous Marilyn Monroe is said to have taken a bath in bubbly. It took 350 bottles to fill the tub.
  • You should let champagne sit for a couple of minutes after pouring it because it intensifies the aroma and taste.
