Care of your glassware 

We recommend hand washing of all of our glassware with warm soapy water and polish dry with a clean soft cloth.

Due to the handmade nature of most of our glassware, some items may vary in size or shape from that shown. All sizes are for guidance only. Small bubbles or imperfections may also arise – these are due to the handmade nature of the products and cannot be avoided. Items that have more than 3 bubbles or have a bubble that breaks the surface of the glass are not sent out. Once the order has been placed and approved if using our bespoke service, it cannot be changed or cancelled. Only faulty or damaged personalised items can be exchanged or returned.

Each piece of glassware has a set area for engraving included in the price. If your artwork exceeds this area, we will contact you so you can choose to have the artwork resized or additional charges will apply.


Whilst we endeavour to match your requirements, each piece is hand-made and individual. We are not able to match colours and styles exactly and we can only interpret photos, pictures and reproductions supplied to us. It is up to you to ensure that important details are brought to our attention before approving any proofs.

The Gift of Glass cannot be held responsible, accountable or liable for any loss or damage to your finished pieces, howsoever caused, once the finished pieces are in the hands of a postal/delivery agent.

The Gift of Glass reserve the right to discontinue products, to change specifications or price of its products at any time without notice and without incurring any obligation whatsoever.
