Admit it: The glassware you use in your home is an afterthought, right? It’s okay, you’re not alone.

For years, my kitchen was full of the same glasses virtually everyone and their cousin owns. You know what I’m talking about: The sleek, rectangular tumbler and rocks glasses that are crisp, clean, and, well, a little boring. Sure, your standard glasses get the job done and don’t crack when you cheers with your friends, but they don’t speak to your design aesthetic. And, when you pair basic glassware with the simple, white plates everyone else also owns, your tablescape has a one-way ticket to Snoozeville. 

But thanks to H&M, it is possible to have glassware that’s practical and packs on the pizazz. 

*Record scratch*

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “H&M? I by my clothes at H&M, not my cups.” While it’s no secret H&M has a robust home section, I’ve found that its glassware is oftentimes the unsung hero of the entire site. 

Consider it love at first sight when I stumbled across H&M’s teal fluted beverage glasses. The compact size was small enough to fit on my nightstand table, but large enough to gold a couple glasses of water. The tubular detailing and teal felt more stylish than the other glasses lurking in my cabinet—and fueled my penchant for curvy decor. Oh, and did I mention these glasses were on sale for $2.99 each? I ordered six on the spot. 

It’s been a year since that fateful order—and, sigh, my precious glasses are no longer available—but H&M has become my go-to spot for glassware. In fact, it was one of the first places I thought to visit when I needed glasses for my new apartment. And you can bet I scored some tumblers and wine glasses for a steal.

Whether you’re in the market for wine glasses for your upcoming dinner party or an option that will elevate a simple cup of tap water, H&M is packed with gorgeous (and affordable!) styles for every occasion.

Go ahead, shop the seven standout options below. And if you still like the simplicity of a frills-free glass, don’t worry: H&M has those, too:

Though this option boasts a simple silhouette, its charcoal colorway keeps this glass from feeling basic. Or, if you want to keep it simple, opt for the clear iteration.

At first glance, these gilded coupe glasses look like they’d cost a pretty penny at an antique store. But in reality? They’re $10 a pop at H&M.

Psst...this detailed style will pair nicely with an Old Fashioned or perfectly chilled glass of iced tea.

Between the curvy silhouette and blissful blue hue, one thing’s for sure: This style is sure to spice up your kitchen cabinet.

Fun fact: I purchased these wine glasses for my new apartment a few weeks ago. The exaggerated, angular silhouette makes them a stylish match for any varietal.

Just because these cups are marketed as toothbrush holders doesn’t mean you can buy a couple and use ‘em as drinking glasses. The ribbed design is way too stylish to be confined to your bathroom.
