Drinking glasses made from bottles make an interesting gift, not only is it functional but it is also a great gift for a green aficionado as it recycles the bottle.
The head of the bottle is cut off to create the glass (the bottom part is the glass). The glass edge is then sanded smooth using fine sandpaper and it can then be used as a glass (or ornament). The glass is cut using a bottle cutter, which you can buy as a kit or make yourself using a glass cutter.
The trick is not to use any bottle to make the glasses but fancy bottles (Belvedere Vodka being a good example). Make friends with bars to get fancy bottles to use.
