Sip this: 10 ingenious mugs for your winter-weather drinks
Put your coffee/hot chocolate/tea down immediately. And no, we don’t care how healthy your beverage of choice is — at least at the moment. But we do think that you’re probably drinking out of a really boring mug. We’ve got your mug makeover covered with these 10 ingenious designs.
Stainless Steel Self Stirring Mug
In perhaps the coolest invention in the last 100 years — yes, it’s even better than the iPhone — the Stainless Steel Self Stirring Mug self-stirs your drink with the push of a button. It uses a 4,000 RPM motor that quietly stirs most drinks.
Muy Grande! Extra Large Coffee Cup
If one little measly cup of coffee is just not enough for you, take a sip out of this humungous cup from Home Wet Bar. The porcelain trough is 10 inches in diameter, 6.5 inches tall and weighs more than 10 pounds. In coffee addict terms, this behemoth holds 20 regular cups of coffee.
Say goodbye to plates! The Face Mug from Uncommon Goods offers up the perfect place to store a nosh, while indulging in your fave warm beverage.
Soup & Cracker Mugs
Made specifically to house your soup and crackers side by side, with a nifty built-in cracker caddy, we can only imagine the fantastic variations. We’re thinking hot chocolate and marshmallows, portion-controlled guacamole with crackers or veggies, milk and cookies! The dishwasher- and microwave-safe Soup & Cracker Mug holds 16 ounces.
Glass Travel Mug with Infuser
This travel mug from DavidsTea is perfect for tea enthusiasts. The double-paned glass design keeps tea hot or cold, staying comfortable to the touch. Simply spoon tea into the stainless steel infuser, secure the infuser into the mug, pour hot water over the tea leaves, cover with lid and steep, and remove infuser and empty contents after infusion.
Mixed Messages Mug
Construct a ransom note or tell someone you love them with the Mixed Message Mug. The white mug comes with a number of miscellaneous letters that look like they were cut from magazines and newspaper. The durable polymer letters cling to the mug through multiple washings but can be removed.
The KeepCup is a barista standard reusable cup — it replicates standard takeaway sizes and fits under the group heads of most espresso machines. The travel mug is BPA-free, nontoxic, dishwasher-safe, microwavable, splash-proof and uses half the carbon, one-third the water and half the energy compared with disposables. Choose from one of the company’s premade designs or create your own.
Dual Heated Travel Mug
No one likes a lukewarm cup of coffee. Combat the problem with this Dual Heated Travel Mug. Plug it into the cigarette lighter in your car or USB port at the office for consistently warm coffee. The mug is made of durable stainless steel and holds 16 ounces.
Morning Putt Golfers Coffee Mug Gift Set
We personally know a number of golf fanatics who would go nuts over this one. Plus, who wouldn’t love a little golf in the office? The golf club doubles as a drink stirrer.
For the coffee lover who’s always on the go, try the D-Ring Mug from Uncommon Goods. The handle of this portable mug is actually a carabiner clip, which you can hang from your belt loop or bag strap.
