The season of holiday parties is upon us, which means it’s time to enjoy family, friends… and wine!

As you are planning your holiday soiree, you might consider a cute and crafty way to help people keep track of their wine glasses.

Wine markers are quickly catching on as a must-have item at large parties where glasses are sure to get confused or go astray. These completely erasable and safe markers won’t harm your wine glasses, and you can either write people’s names or create fun designs.

For a holiday party, you could draw a candy cane, a sprig of holly or a Christmas tree. And if you don’t trust your own handiwork, you can simply use the stencils provided. This is definitely helpful for people like me who can barely draw a stick figure!


Oh, and since it works on any glass surface, you can also use it on cups at children’s parties (no germ-swapping here!) and even let the kids get in on the fun by having them write their own names and make their own designs. Then, just wait a few moments until it dries, and voila! You have a simple and fun way to keep glasses from being confused.


Bonus: These can be used on glass plates or bowls as well, so it’s a simple way to keep kids from arguing over their snacks, as well as a way to make your traditional plates more festive!


Another way to help your guests keep track of their libations is with wine charms. Make sure you use holiday-themed ones to help make your party even more festive, such as with this option from Etsy store ThePerfectlySimple.

These deer heads wine markers are cute and festive, too. And bonus: Since these sit front and center on the rim of the glass, they’re hard to miss!
