The noble saguaro is probably the most iconic of all the cacti, and with this charming set of green glasses, you can bring the desert to your countertop. A popular fixture in Arizona, the plants can grow to be over 60 feet tall and have as many as 25 arms. When birds nest in the hollow cacti, the plants grow wooden structures called "saguaro boots" to protect its outer shell—Native Americans used to use these "boots" as natural canteens. In that spirit of practical hydration, you can drink out of this kitchenware cacti as well, but in the comfort of your air-conditioned home.

Each set comes with six glasses and two arms. You can snag one on Firebox if you're in the United Kingdom, or through UncommonGoods if you're in the United States.
