Beer Stein

An authentic German beer stein makes for an exceptional present that enhances the experience of drinking beer and serves as an unforgettable souvenir from their visit or love of German culture. There are various varieties, including Viking-themed ones. These items are perfect as groomsmen’s gifts or collector's items.

These steins first made an appearance during the 1500s as a result of laws passed in various German principalities requiring that food or drink containers have covers to help combat bubonic plague, caused by fly infestation in Europe at this time.

Authentic German steins should have a pewter lid for added authenticity, with lighter interior colors than those found outside, hand-carved designs or depictions of folk tales or German patriotic themes being especially sought-after. When searching for one of these vintage gems, always look out for one with an identifiable thumb lift on its handle to identify genuine pieces.

Bottega Veneta Earrings

Dua Lipa, Kendall Jenner and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been seen sporting these beautiful pieces that curve around from above the lobe with sterling silver and gold plating that curve around to form an '80s style curve around to form an '80s style curve around their ears from above the lobe.

Thank goodness there are plenty of high-quality dupes that look identical to the real thing at an accessible price point.
