Drinking Mugs Defined
If you are an ardent coffee fan, what you drink your favourite ‘tipple’ out of, is probably important to you. Maybe you aren't the fan, but a friend or partner is. Then you already know how attached to their favourite coffee mug they can be! Only God himself has the power to forgive those who have the audacity to give them an ‘inferior’ mug! Drinking mugs have metamorphosed over the years, into all manner of curious shapes and sizes, but their purpose and popularity has not.
Smell the Coffee?
Coffee mugs can make great gifts. After all, everyone needs them, and they can be a highly decorative addition to the home. Collectors usually keep their favourite designs on show. Specialist coffee drinkers often have a particular coffee mug for a particular type of coffee. For example, Espresso and Cappuccino. Some people like big coffee mugs for their hot chocolate or cup of tea. Take a look online, you'll find lots of information and designs available.
Designs and Collectables
Whether you are looking for designer coffee mugs, specialist mugs, even personalised, humorous, or novelty designs. You will find them online. Designer drinking mugs can be fabricated from all kinds of materials, anything, from glass to paper. Novelty mugs for children are often promotional. For instance, Walt Disney® characters are highly popular and collectable. United States Army, Navy and Air force mugs are collected by adults and children alike. Designer, collectable and novelty mugs have always been in demand.
The Irish Connection
Liqueur coffee is loved by many, but an Irish Coffee is favoured by coffee drinkers all over the world. Traditionally, it is served in an Irish coffee mug. Certainly the best way to enjoy the experience to it's fullest. Irish coffee mugs are elegant, yet made of heavy glass or crystal. The shape does vary, but the most traditional style is crystal, with a heavy, wine glass base. Tall in body, with a sturdy handle. Nothing like a ‘Hot Toddy’ on a cold winters night to keep back the chill.
Time to Travel
Travel mugs are perfect for all kinds of travel situations. Complete with a watertight lid! (usually!) Many travel mugs are insulated, or thermal, and most commonly made from stainless steel and durable plastic. Mostly due to the sheer practicality of the material. Thermal mugs are great for keeping your soup warm! Or even that coffee at work. The one which always seems to go cold before you can get to it! Stainless steel travel mugs are more durable than the plastic versions.
Their downfall? Not good for the office, no microwaving allowed! Stainless steel coffee mugs are a big hit with US commuters. They look good, are easy to clean, and you can pick one up from Starbucks! However, the internet will probably get you a better deal. Whether looking for a gift for a friend, or you fancy giving the office paper cups the elbow, think about the style you buy. There's sure to be one that suits, out of all the drinking mugs available out there! However, as they say “The message is equally important as the medium"!
