Mugs on the picture: Did a grape job raisin me, I turtley need more coffee
Whether it’s holiday season, a birthday or you’re just in the giving mood, picking out a unique and special gift for a loved one is extremely rewarding. Nothing warms the heart quite like seeing the look on their face when you completely knock a present out of the park.
However, gift-giving is not without its challenges. Hours of scouring the internet and searching through stores can leave you empty-handed and discouraged. Fortunately, there’s one gift that will never go out of style or fade in utility. You guessed it! Coffee mugs. A unique gift for all friends and family, mugs range from goofy to beautiful, conjuring up lives and smiles from anyone lucky enough to receive one. Several companies offer custom and unique mugs, but very few match the wit, originality and craftsmanship that we provide.
Here are 7 reasons that our coffee mugs make for an unbeatable gift.
1. Start the day off right
Most people begin their day with a cup of coffee or tea. This time-honored tradition spans across generations and cultures, making a mug a universally useful item. Furthermore, I don’t know about you, but nothing puts me in a better mood than those first few sips of a deliciously brewed coffee. If you’re looking for some positive association, there’s no better than giving a loved one a unique mug so that they are reminded of you every time they have their spirits lifted in the morning. It’s a great way to feel connected even without being in close physical proximity.
2. Conversation starter
Often times, hot drinks are served and consumed in shared public settings. From coffee shops to the family table, the ultimate power of a good drink is bringing people together. What better way to create fun, engaging conversation than raising a fun, engaging mug to your lips, surely catching the eye of those around you. A unique mug lightens up the mood and lifts the spirits of not only the drinker, but everyone around them, meaning your gift has a widespread positive impact.
3. Make your friend smile
The only thing tougher than shopping for a family member is finding the right gift for a friend. Either you know the person too well and can’t find something that’s exactly right, or you don’t know the person well enough and don’t want to overstep your boundaries. In either case, a unique coffee mug makes the absolute best present for a friend. Right in the sweet zone, a good friend mug neither crosses any lines nor feels like a cheap throwaway gift. Every time they open their cupboard to grab a glass, they will be reminded of your generosity and smile at how amazing of a friend you are.
4. Perfect for work
A day at the office can feel like it drags on forever, and no one will blame you for going back for a second (or if we’re being honest, third) cup throughout the day. This phenomenon is by no means relegated to you alone, as you can safely bet that your friends and family experience the same daily struggle. Why not help them out with a creative gift that proves useful to them every day while simultaneously elevating their spirits. Clever work themed mugs add that little extra pep when that two o’clock feeling kicks in. Whoever is lucky enough to receive a mug from you will be extremely thankful for the laugh you provided them when they felt like they weren’t going to make it through the day.
5. People become attached to their mugs
We all become oddly attached to seemingly trivial items over the course of our lifetimes. For some, it’s a blanket or little toy, for others it’s an old bracelet or special note. Wouldn’t it be cool if that little item was a gift that came from you? People have a distinct affinity for their mugs, meaning that it’s likely that the present you give them will play an important role throughout their daily routine for years to come. What other gifts could have such an immense impact or longevity?
Gifts come in all shapes and sizes but typically lack in exact specificity to the person. Present-giving sessions are often accompanied by stories of, “this is why it reminded me of you…” Wouldn’t it be great if the gift told the story for you? Well, that’s exactly what mugs do. We offer seventeen (yes that’s right, an astounding one dash seven) different collections of uniquely crafted mugs. Our categories range from funny to inspirational and include options for Father's and Mother's Day as well. We even have a selection of Cat Coffee Mugs for that person in your life who maybe loves their furry friend a little too much and isn’t afraid to let the world know.
In an ideal world, we could give our loved ones exactly what we want without a worry of what it’d do to our bank accounts. Unfortunately, the real world requires real money for real gifts. Thankfully, as our name suggests, we sell our mugs for, yes that’s right, nine dollars! You'll be hard-pressed to find a more impactful, lasting, meaningful gift anywhere for less than a ten-dollar bill. In fact, the price makes mugs a great option to give to multiple people. A wide range of choices means you won’t give duplicate gifts but the price ensures your wallet won’t be hurting either.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for literally anyone in your life, look no further. The seven reasons listed above highlight exactly why a coffee mug makes a unique, clever and thoughtful gift for anybody ever. If you’re still not convinced, take a look around our website. With a variety of categories and unbeatable prices, you’ll find something that will bring a smile to both of your faces. Take the guesswork out of buying a gift. Give them a unique mug that they will cherish forever.
A little bit of smile :)
