What is a glassybaby? Only the hottest thing to come out of Seattle since Starbucks! The perfect hostess, housewarming or birthday gift, glassybabies are beautiful hand blown glass cups that can be used as candle holders, vases or drinking glasses. They come in 53 different colors, with new ones being introduced all the time and named fun things like "Seattle Sunset," "Rubber Ducky," and Martha Stewart's favorite "Bedford Brown."

When lit up they glow beautifully and make fabulous centerpieces or are sure to spark conversation when used as wine glasses at a party. Glassybabies have been getting a ton of press since Oprah created the buzz by listing them on her list of Favorite Things and artist and creator of glassybaby, Lee Rhodes, was featured on Martha Stewart Living.

A three-time cancer survivor and mother of three, Rhodes started making the glassybabies out of her garage seven years ago as gifts for friends. Now she is giving back by designating a select group of glassybaby colors to benefit organizations contributing to cancer patient care and cancer research. For example, this goldenrod glassybaby benefits M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to help Hurricane Katrina victims receiving cancer treatment.

Glassybabies are $40 each and can be purchased here.

Yeah, I think they're very cute, but NOT WORTH the cost.

I can't justify these. They are mediocre. For about $10 each I'd be more interested.

Not usually the type of thing I like, but these are really nice. Totally not worth the price tag. I'll wait for the $5 Target ripoffs.

I'd have to ask each my friends for one. Or ask two of them to split the cost of one and start a collection.

They're gorgeous, but way too expensive. How could you possibly just buy one?

I agree with haze1nut - I love them but $40 each is definitely WAY too much!!! They're the kind of thing you need more than one of and that is just crazy. $40 for a set of four, maybe I'd buy them.

$40 bucks?!?! to me that seems absurd!! but they are cute.....but still. if i had to get them, i would have to get at least 4 and that's already $160! scary
