At one point in my life I found myself using less and less glassware. I didn't want my kids to break them and we camp a lot so I settled in to using plastic tumblers. I don't mind the plastic tumblers, but it just isn't as much fun sipping wine or a cocktail from a plastic cup. I started looking for different types of wine and cocktail tumblers and I came across a post on social media about a high end wine glass protected by a silicone sleeve. I instantly fell in love with the W&P Porter Glass.

If you haven't heard of the W&P brand, their mission is to create products that solve problems for real life, elevate the everyday, and make it simple to do good. Sipping my wine from the Porter Glass elevates my day in a simple, yet meaningful, way.
Here are 5 reasons why the W&P Porter Glass is my favorite glass and why it will be yours, too.
A Simple Pleasure
Life can be hard. Relying on a few simple, yet beautiful objects in your daily life can make hard days better. The glass is elegant and is one of my favorite simple pleasures. Ending a stressful day sitting outside sipping wine or lemonade from my Porter glass somehow makes things a little bit better. Everyone in my family understands that my Porter glass is mine- there aren't many things that moms can claim as their own.
Whether you prefer your initials, your entire name, an inspirational quote, or any other text, Porter glasses can be easily personalized. Bring your personalized glass to backyard parties, an afternoon with the girls, or in the car on your commute. No one can claim it as their own when it is personalized. They also make great gifts and party favors- I love personalized gifts.
The design of the Porter glass makes it so easy to bring along anywhere. Before I found these glasses, I did not travel in my RV with glass. There was too much risk of the glass breaking during travel. The silicone sleeve on the Porter glass keeps my glasses from breaking when traveling in my RV. The glass comes with a lid to prevent spills during travel and the sliding tab makes drinking simple.

Made from a premium borosilicate glass, the Porter glass is durable and surprisingly lightweight. I have had mine for over a year and am confident that it will last for years to come- even with frequent use. The LFGB- certified silicone sleeve keeps the glass safe and also allows for easy gripping. As an added bonus, the top is made of food grade plastic and is dishwasher safe, along with the glass. I grip the glass with ease, even with small hands.
With nine colors from which to choose, there is an option for everyone. My personal favorite is the Gold Terrazzo, but my husband loves the solid Charcoal color. Here are all of the color options:
- Cream Terrazzo
- Blush Terrazzo
- Charcoal Terrazzo
- Gold Terrazzo
If you are currently using plastic tumblers or single use cups for drinks, the Porter glass is here to rescue you.
