            A gift for my husband who enjoys literature, whiskey and travel. We have toured Scotland and England, visiting homes, schools, and burial sites of various authors. This is an enjoyable way to enjoy a drink, while reminiscing about our trips and favorite authors.

                I wasn't looking for the perfect "Hamlet" gift since that is my boyfriend's favorite Shakespeare play. When I stumbled on this product, I knew it was the perfect fit. Although I wouldn't not trust putting this product in the dishwasher due to the etching, both of us handwash all of our dishes anyway.

                        These are artfully and precisely designed, and I hope Mr. Johnson will add more titles, starting with The Great Gatsby, so that I can purchase those as gifts too-
