'Someone's Cup' by Esque Studio is a drinking glass that's been pre-marked with a lipstick kiss on the rim. Designer Andi Kovel fired the enamel lipstick print on the hand-blown glass in order to play on the idea that women feel a need to "mark their territory."

Territorial tendencies aside, there is something sensual about a lipstick mark, whether it's on the collar of a crisp white oxford, someone's neck or even a drinking glass. In popular culture, the lipstick mark is a symbol of scandal, sexuality and unbridled passion.

So, if you're not interested in the tired flowers-and-chocolate routine this Valentine's Day, pucker up(!) and gift your lady with the 'Someone's Cup' to show her that you're all hers.
