The Full Bottle Wine glass, stemware that holds up to 750 milliliters and permits anyone to say that they only had one glass, has made the Hammacher Schlemmer Holiday Gift Guide for 2013. The intent of the Hammacher Schlemmer gift guide is, the retailer stated, to offer an assortment of products that solve problems or are the only ones of their kind.

"The Holiday Gift Guide provides customers with a means for finding unconventional gifts— presents that are not easily found elsewhere," said Hammacher Schlemmer's general manager Fred Berns.

Other products included in the guide are The Oilless Fryer, an appliance that cooks crisp, succulent fried food without any oil, The Wireless iPhone Photo Printer, a device that prints color photographs from an iPhone or Android-powered phone, and The 50' Snowball Launcher, a toy blaster that makes and shoots softball-sized snowballs. Also on offer are The iPhone Binoculars, which display images at eight-times magnification on the smartphone, The Wireless Speaker Ear Warmers, a product that protects ears from the cold and delivers sound from a smartphone, The World's Smallest Automatic Umbrella, retracting to merely eight inches long for unobtrusive storage, The VHS To DVD Converter, and The One Year Smartphone Back Up Battery. Also included, under the heading whimsical gifts, is The Mind Controlled UFO, a flying orb that is remotely controlled by one's own brain waves, according to Hammacher Schlemmer.
