German Beer Steins Make Great Gifts

by : Alan Burruel

How can something that really got going during the bubonic plague make such a great present? Well it's easy, nobody is required to drink out of these beautiful beers steins, you can just admire them for their fine craftsmanship. Originated in the 14th century, these mugs made drinking anything, let alone alcohol, that much more sanitary. But today's steins come in a variety of color, materials, and styles. There is sure to be a perfect one for everyone on your gift list. There are the ever famous pewter steins that make bold artistic statements. There's also stoneware pieces that demonstrate that old world German tradition unlike any others. Finally, there are regimental steins that highlight colorful scenes of war and combat. These are perfect for any veterans, or war memorabilia collectors. Besides, what person doesn't like enjoying a good beer once in awhile. Life's too short not too experience a great beer in a stein made in Germany. This may sound crazy to stein collector's but that okay. My view is that whatever you do with your beer stein should make you happy, and for some people that may well very be using the darn thing. The point is, gifts are meant to be enjoyed not taken back to the store the next day. When you really think about it does a gift certificate anywhere really say I love you? I don't think so, I believe time and thought should go into picking a gift for anyone. And no matter what style best suits you, there's beer stein that fits your personality. In fact, there's just something special about knowing you have one of a kind hand made work of art decorating your house. So the next time you can't decide what to get, remember German beer steins because whoever you give it to surely will.
