The Wine Glass Marker (5 Metallic Colors)

"Wait… Is this my drink? Oh, it's yours? Then which one is mine?" There's a super-easy way to banish this conversation from your future parties. Keep a set of these best-selling markers on hand, and your pals can label their beverages however they like! The ink easily washes off glass, the price is right, and the whole process is a fun conversation starter. Bonus: These are GREAT for customizing gifts like bottles of wine (and for leaving silly messages on the bathroom mirror for your significant other)!

SodaStream Genesis Sparkling Water Maker

Fizzy flavored water and no-calorie soda are the ultimate guilt-free cocktail mixers, but why limit yourself to what’s available in stores? With this gadget, you can easily bubble up your own brew in seconds! Stock up on flavors like Diet Cranberry Raspberry, Mango Fruit Drops, and Diet Strawberry Watermelon. There are even low-calorie mixes like Pink Mojito and Bahamas Pina Colada! Of course, SodaStream is also great for everyday use, especially with those unsweetened natural essences. Score the complete kit on Amazon, and then grab your favorite flavors.

Joie MSC Wine Watchers (6-Piece Set)

Having a handful of pals over for some vino? There are plenty of delicate dangly wine-glass charms out there that could double for a pretty set of earrings. But if you're looking for something a bit more fun and less stuffy, bust out a set of Wine Watchers. The colorful characters, with their bulbous eyes and goofy expressions, wrap around the stems of your wine glasses and will help you keep track of your glass... Just try not to giggle as you sip. (Or let loose; it IS happy hour, after all!)

Brovino Silicone Wine Glasses (4-Piece Set)

If you like to take your fun outside for a picnic, backyard BBQ, or pool party, this is a super-smart set of glasses to bring along. The shatterproof cups are made of soft silicone, so there's no risk of breakage, and their flexible form makes them so easy to pack. Who wants their good time derailed by broken glass? Exactly.
