Interesting fact for you:
Did you know that September is the most popular month for birthdays?
On reflection, the reason for this is pretty obvious: nine months before September it's the holidays, a time for lovers to relax with each other and reconnect, so to speak, away from the pressures of day-to-day life.
Anyway, we thought this little snippet of information was interesting, so we wanted to share it with you. Also, since we're about to head into September, chances are you'll need to buy a gift (or multiple gifts!) for someone you know.
So, we wanted to share another interesting insight with you: seven reasons why Sagrada glassware makes the ideal "go-to" gift for almost anybody.
Here they are:
- Everybody likes to enjoy a drink.
Whether it's a beer, a glass of wine, a dram of Scotch, a tot of rum (for the old sea dogs out there), or a more sophisticated cocktail — we all like to share a drink with our friends, family, and those we love.
- They'll use it (or admire it) every day.
Because even if their Sagrada glassware only comes out for special occasions, it will still take pride of place in their display cabinet.
- Every piece is a unique work of craftsmanship and art.
No two pieces are ever the same, though they all belong to the same family. Each glass and decanter are mouth blown by a master glassmith, and then hand-painted — inspired by the stained-glass windows of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Basilica here in Barcelona.
- Every piece comes in its own beautiful gift box.
Your gift will be delivered to you, or its intended recipient, immaculately packaged with love and care. People always gasp when they first open the box. (If you've ordered from us before, you'll know what I mean!)
- It's an investment that may even out-live them.
Rather than giving your friends or loved ones another "thing" they'll use up and consume, Sagrada glassware is something they'll be able to keep and treasure for the rest of their lives — and beyond, since many of our customers tell us their glassware has become an heirloom.
- It's a cultural artefact — and a point of conversation.
Unlike most glassware, every piece from the Sagrada collection tells a story. It's a small piece of Catalan culture and history, brought across the ocean and into your friend's home. It's for the worldly, for those who love to travel, discover new wonders, and expand their horizons.
- Perceived value is a LOT higher than the price.
When your friend or loved one takes their Sagrada glassware out of the box, they'll almost certainly think it's more expensive than it actually is.
So, if you have a birthday or anniversary coming up soon, whether it's for a family member, a dear friend, or somebody you want to get closer to — or if you want to get a head start on your Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping and beat the rush — now would be a great time to put in your order.
As you know, we're not a big glassware "brand" or manufacturing company. We're a small family of master glassmiths and inspired artists.
This means we can only produce so many new pieces per day.
When the holiday season starts to approach and demand for our work increases (like it does every year), we can't suddenly "double production".
For this reason, we often sell out — and it can take weeks, possibly even a month or more, until we're able to catch up with demand again.
So, if you need to buy a gift for someone soon, I recommend you to place your order today, and secure your glassware.
