It's a problem as old as time itself.

You want to drink an entire bottle of Prosecco without having to fanny about with refills, but you're worried that drinking it directly from the bottle will make you look like a complete and utter dickhead. You're right, it will.

However, it seems one enterprising online gift retailer has spotted this gap in the market and created a rather simple solution.

The Present Finder website's latest Prosecco-inspired product will no doubt have fizz-lovers up and down the country jumping for joy. Behold, the 750ml Prosecco glass.

This Christmas must-have is priced at £14.99 and will hold an entire bottle of your favourite bubbles. Perfect for those awkward festive get-togethers with family members you normally do your best to avoid.

The product description for the glass reads: "No more refills with this glass in your hand! Simply pop the cork and enjoy.

"Ideal for those extra special celebrations we also think this gift will hit the spot if you are too simply too fabulous to queue.

"We do always encourage responsible drinking but you'll be pleased to hear that this novelty gift comes in a fabulous gift box so it's a superb present even if you just want to poke a little fun.

"But you'll be pleased to hear our product testing team were more than satisfied to confirm that it does indeed hold a full bottle of prosecco so don't be shy to try it out for that big occasion!"

Prosecco fiends recently lost their shit when German budget supermarket chain Lidl offered shoppers the jaw-dropping deal of six bottles of the good stuff for no more than 20 quid ($26).

The steal of a deal had eager shoppers queueing up outside branches to get their hands on some discount fizz, at a price that works out at £3.33 ($4.31) a bottle. Admittedly, at £5.79 ($7.50) full retail, Lidl's Prosecco is hardly breaking the bank as it is, but in this cloudy financial climate every penny counts.

Darren Land witnessed the scenes at his local branch in Newcastle.

"Eager customers [were] queuing from the early hours to make sure they grabbed the bargain offer," he said.

"By five minutes after opening time they were down to half of the display stock as yet more and more customers arrived and flooded into the store.

"They were completely sold out within 10 minutes of opening."

Gillian Scott, also at the scene, commented: "There were at least 100 people in the queue by 7.45am. It was very good natured.

"The first person leaving the store received a cheer from the queue members. The boxes of Prosecco were gone by 8.05am, leading to many disappointed customers who expressed their disappointment most vociferously to the staff.

"Apparently, there will be more tomorrow."
