If you love Halloween and are ready for the holiday to come back stronger than ever post-pandemic, take things a notch up from playing dress-up and stock up your home with the finest Halloween glassware money can buy. And if you’re generally not someone that gets costumed up, this is the perfect way to express your creativity on the last day of October. These elegant goblets will hold everything in your haunted home bar, from jello shots to mocktails.
Disposable Halloween tableware decor is still festive and can get the job done but isn’t the most sustainable choice, and options are often limited in terms of design. Instead, these affordable decorative drinking glasses come in all sizes, styles, themes and set quantities, so you can find exactly what you need without compromise. Use them year after year, and you won’t need to hit the dollar store up for throw-away cups ever again.
Here are all the most unique pieces you need to add to your Halloween glassware collection this year, from cheeky choices to more morbid ones.
1. Counter Couture Design Halloween Macabre 11oz Wine Glass, Set of 4
This macabre glass set by Counter Couture Design is breathtaking, with some serious attention to detail. It includes a carefully etched scarab beetle, moth, skull and anatomical heart. While it’s definitely not as cutesy as some of the more whimsical Halloween glassware options, the slightly morbid and very rock n’ roll glass set is attractive enough to use year-round. Due to their delicate craftsmanship, they can only be hand-washed.
2. The Holiday Aisle Lewie Going Batty 17oz Glassware, Set of 2
We love a multifunctional piece of tableware. These stemless bat-themed glasses can house your favorite witch’s brew whenever you’re thirsty. When they’re not in use, you can place a small candle in them, turning these laser-engraved tumblers into glowing, eerie works of art that will safely light up any surface on Halloween. They stand out from the usually transparent Halloween glassware available on the market, and their generous size makes them even more versatile.
3. The Holiday Aisle Shingleton Ghoul’s Night Out 21oz Stemless Wine Glass, Set of 4
Halloween accessories don’t necessarily have to be scary, as this punny stemless wine glass set proves. With adorable logos and quotes that say things, including “I’m already lit” with a carved pumpkin image above. The stemless design makes them less prone to breaking in the dishwasher, and since each glass has a different design, everyone can tell which glass is theirs. If your favorite thing is making cringe-worthy dad jokes, you’ll definitely need these in your cabinets.
4. Susquehanna Glass Skull and Crossbones 21oz Stemless Wine Glass, Set of 4
This affordable set of skull and crossbones wine glasses come with a white and black decal, and along with being able to hold almost half a bottle of wine at 21 ounces, their basic design gives them an edgy flair for all-season usage. If you’re dressing up as a pirate for Halloween, this glassware is a must. Buyers love the large capacity and are happy with the appearance for the price. Through multiple dishwasher loads, these deep-etched graphics won’t fade over time.
5. Circleware Skull Face Heavy Base Shot Glasses, Set of 6
These heavy whiskey glasses do one better than a skull print — they are, in fact, shaped like a skull, making for a perfectly spooky accessory to house your shot of choice, whether it’s liquor or espresso. They can also be used for party decor and display purposes only if you’re not a shot person. One user prefers it to a traditional tall double shot glass, saying, “The size is great, and it’s harder to break them because they are wider and not tall like my other shot glasses.”
6. Greenline Goods Edgar Allen Poe Whiskey Glasses, Set of 2
Lit and horror lovers alike will rejoice over these Edgar Allan Poe-themed lowball drinking glasses, which come in a set of two. Covered in his words and other macabre images, these inked-up and historically accurate glasses read iconic poems by the author, with vintage first edition illustration to mask. If you’re looking to beef up your literature-based drinkware beyond Halloween, this brand also offers prints from “Hamlet” and “Pride and Prejudice.”
7. Little May Co Spooky Ghost Beer Glass
As Casper proved to us all, some ghosts are friendly, like these cute lil’ guys. Beer, iced coffee, and even plain old water will be given a makeover with this spooky ghost cup that comes with an optional bamboo lid and straw. Unlike many of the options on this set, you can buy these glasses individually, letting you customize the amount that you need. If you buy three, a free ghost glass is automatically added to your order.
8. Circleware Halloween Sugar Skull High Ball Glass, Set of 4
These sugar skulls will brighten up your Halloween glassware with their colorful but chilling drinking glasses that have some weight to them. The vibrant, adorned skull celebrates Dia de Los Muertes or Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday that celebrates loved ones who have passed away. If you’re looking for a pop of color that’s still elegant, we recommend these beautiful drinking glasses, which also make a great party favor.
9. Cathy’s Concepts Halloween Pumpkin Stemless Wine Glasses, Set of 4
Can’t get enough of carving pumpkins? These stemless glasses riff on that with all kinds of pumpkin-carved faces, presented in a frosted effect. Will you pick the goofy pumpkin or the menacing one? The faces are subtle and not too kitschy, providing a contemporary look on any table. Multiple customers comment on the substantial glass that doesn’t feel too delicate to handle and that they earned compliments from visitors with their unique look.
10. Cathy’s Concepts Halloween Mason Jars, Set of 4
If you’re looking to take your potion on the go, consider this pack of glass mason jars complete with handles and Halloween emblems. What will your mascot be? Pick between a ghost, a bat, a witch and a jack-o’-lantern. Perfect for keeping hot cocoa (or a hot toddy) nice and warm. It’s also a sturdier patio alternative to bringing your indoor dishes out into the elements, and they’re large enough to hold salads, desserts, and various foods.
11. Patch NYC Edgar Double Old Fashioned Glass
Whether you’re sharing drinks with friends or hosting a Halloween dinner party, these classy skull-and-bowtie gilded glasses are just the right amount of vintage-inspired, no matter what’s filling them up. Made in a collab with PATCH NYC, this old-fashioned glass comes with an inspired approach and will work on any table setup with its decorative gold accents. Instead of tacky dollar store skeletons, bring this dapper alternative to your Halloween get-together.
12. Also Consider: Shaped 3D Skull Ice Mold Tray
Over 12,000 Reviews!
What could help your Halloween glassware shine better than some ultra-realistic 3D skull ice cubes? This flexible silicone mold makes it much easier to pop cubes out than stiff plastic ice cube trays. It can freeze up to four substantially sized cubes at a time. Reviewers recommend rinsing the tray before use to avoid a silicone taste, and while some find it a bit tricky to fill, the tray comes with instructions, so your skulls come out perfect every time.
