Holiday Hand Blown Glass Straws from Moxie Glass at The Glass Straw Store

I am so excited to show off my fabulous find for this year's Christmas Gift Guide. I contacted designer, Melissa Boyle of Moxie Glass and told her I would love to show my sweet followers some of her fabulous glass straws in a Holiday Theme. I anticipated she might send some plain red or green festive straws. Instead she custom made these absolutely adorable hand blown glass straws accented with Holiday Candy Canes, Snow Flakes, Reindeer and a Snowman!!! Look real close at the photo below and you will see that not only did she create gorgeous decorated glass straws, the festive decorations are made out of glass, too!!! I am so impressed and so in love with them!!!

Just imagine how cute these glass straws would look at your Holiday Party! Not only would they be the talk of the party, but they would make perfect drink markers and stir sticks. So clever! They could be used in an iced cold cocktail or a steaming hot cocoa as these fabulous glass straws can tolerate any temperature. Need a smaller size? No problem... Melissa specializes in custom orders. She is a creative genius and I have no doubt she will create something just as amazing for you or for your next event!

In addition to being absolutely adorable, these straws really are incredible. They are hand blown using a sturdy borosilicate glass, also known as Pyrex glass. Instead of hand washing these beautiful straws, I am so excited that I can simply place them in the dishwasher or even use them in the microwave. I LOVE that these straws are eco-friendly and reusable providing you with years of enjoyment with only one small investment.

Here are a few awesome facts about the GLASS straws from The Glass Straw Store:
  • Glass Straws are eco-friendly as they are reusable!
  • You can use them in the Dishwasher and Microwave.
  • They are hypoallergenic, 100% non toxic and BPA Free.
  • You can use them in hot beverages and frozen smoothies.
  • You only have to make a one time investment.

Here are some facts about PLASTIC straws:
  • Plastic Straws can't be recycled.
  • They are meant for one use.
  • Most Plastic Straws contain BPA.
  • You can't put them in the dishwasher or the microwave.
  • They require continuous investments.

Children use a lot of straws and you simply can not put a cost on the health and safety of your family. It's very important to me that my children use glass straws that contain no BPA's in place of plastic. I'm so glad that there is an affordable alternative to plastic straws and I highly suggest purchasing glass straws from The Glass Straw Store. Then you too can have the highest quality, most adorable hand blown glass straws available. In addition to Holiday Themes, you will find clear straws, colored straws and the cutest critter straws (see below)! Plus, if you don't see what you're looking for, you can submit a custom order. My kids and I are madly in LOVE with our new Holiday Glass Straws and I am so excited to have shared our experience with you!
