The Perfect Crystal Gifts for Military Retirement and Promotion

military promotion retirement giftsAn honorable military career is a great accomplishment, and a crystal gift is a great way to celebrate. If you have a friend or loved one who is retiring from the military soon or a relative who is getting a promotion in his or her branch of the military, we’ve got the perfect crystal keepsakes for you.

Beer Mugs and Glasses

Toast to your relative’s impressive military achievements with a beer mug or Pilsner beer glass. These glasses can be engraved with your loved one’s name and rank along with his or her years of military service. You can also include a short message letting your close friend know how proud you are of him or her or thanking him or her for serving the country. The etched glass effect we use ensures that the designs are carved deep into the glass and look brand new for years.


Decanters hold enough wine or spirits for your military family member to celebrate with the ones they love. The decanters are made from quality crystal and are great for holding Scotch whiskey and Bourbon. You can have the decanters engraved or monogrammed to personalize them, or you can decorate these crystal gifts with a military symbol that is meaningful to the recipient. There are also several glasses in our gift collection that coordinate well with any decanter you choose, so you’ll be able to present an entire crystal gift set to the special soldier in your life.

Engraved Wine Bottles

Engraved wine bottles are an attractive keepsake that your military loved one will cherish for years. If your relative is celebrating the anniversary of his or her military branch or has completed a military tour, this crystal gift can be used as a way to show your appreciation for your loved one’s dedication and hard work. The wine glasses are available in colored glass, so they’ll stand out as a decorative item that can be displayed in the recipient’s home or office.

Wine Glasses

Since each branch of the military is unique, there are wine glasses that celebrate those who have served in the Army, Marines, Navy, or Air Force. Wine glasses are an elegant way to commend your military family member or friend on receiving a military promotion or to celebrate his or her . You can have the glass engraved with the recipient’s name and rank in the military as well as the years the recipient has been deployed. A symbol representing the military branch the person belongs to is also fitting and makes a great office or home accent. The glasses can be purchased individually, or you can buy a set so that the recipient can entertain guests with them.

We also have a number of customized crystal gifts that celebrate the military families who have supported your military relative. We can personalize glasses and mugs with messages like “Military Mom” or “Military Wife” or “My Brother is a Proud (military branch name) as a way to honor the men and women who have had a direct hand in helping the recipient achieve professional success. Take a look at our selection and let us know your needs so we can prepare the ideal crystal present for a soldier you love.

Crystal Imagery to Donate Proceeds to American Widow Project

American Widow ProjectAt Crystal Imagery, we have a great love of our country and all the service men and women who help to protect us every day. We are in awe of the sacrifice these brave men and women make so that we can be FREE. Therefore we wanted to find a way to give back and say thank you in some little way.
We’ve chosen to donate 10% of all of our web sales for any military glassware to American Widow Project. We have engraved glasses for every branch (Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy) and even for military wives and moms. Your purchase will help us to support our great nation’s deceased service men and women by helping to provide much needed support to their grieving wives and families.Read about this organization below and please consider donating.

Since 2001, over 6,600 U.S. service members have lost their lives in Iraq
and Afghanistan. This number does not include the thousands more who have
lost their lives due to sudden illness, accident, homicide or those that
have taken their own lives due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. At the
same time, more than 3,600 young military widows face their worst nightmare
when they receive that dreadful knock on the door by two military in
uniform notifying them of their spouse’s death.*

While the service member’s sacrifice is often acknowledged by society,
many simply forget or fail to recognize the sacrifice of the spouse who is
now left a grieving military widow. Oftentimes the invisible wounds of
military widows are disregarded due to age or a simple lack of knowledge
and understanding.

The American Widow Project recognizes the sacrifices made by the families
of our fallen and believes that no military widow should feel alone in her
grief. Every military widow deserves the opportunity and tangible tools
available to help rebuild her life. Because of that, the American Widow
Project provides the vital peer-to-peer, emotional, and educational support
necessary to maximize success, healing and hope for a brighter future.

To date, the AWP has held over 42 National retreat events, 12 WidowU
Events, and most recently launched the first ever combined widow and
children’s events.

Please know that any support will greatly help the American Widow Project
continue to serve, heal, and connect military widows, widowers and their
children across the country. Donate here.

Custom Military Academy Bar Glasses

Shek2Members of the West Point Class of 1996 were recently looking for a unique Christmas gift and discovered Crystal Imagery.  After working with the class, we helped them to create custom Beat Navy! glassware sets.  Each glass features their class crest carved into the side of the glass; our deep carvings help highlight details of the crest, such as the cadet and officer sabers, the six talons of the eagle representing their service commitment following graduation, and the eagle looking back onto four fully visible stars, representing their four years spent at the academy.  We also added a special touch through carvings on the bottom of the glasses in each set.  While they are brothers and sisters in arms when defending our nation, on the fields of friendly strife, the United States Military Academy (West Point) and the United States Naval Academy (Annapolis) are fierce rivals.  Reflecting that spirit, the first glass in each set has “Beat Navy!” carved into the bottom.  Each of the remaining bar glasses in the set contains a word from the West Point motto, “Duty, Honor, Country.”  We made these special 4-glass sets available in both whiskey glasses as well as pint glasses.

Looking for a custom bar glasses  for your class, company, fraternity or sorority? Just visit our custom logo barware page and submit your image or idea with your order. Our designers can create something memorable for you!
