2012 Holiday Gift Guide - It's in the Mug

The 2012 Holiday Gift Guide continues with coffee mugs.  We have looked at grinders and brewers, now it's time to look at mugs.  We all have an assortment of mugs, including our favorites.  Can you have too many?  Coffee mugs are also great "novelty gifts" for those "hard to buy for" or coffee lovers on your list.

Thermos Stainless King 16-ounce Leak-Proof Travel Mug

Thermos is well known as the quality and performance leader in insulated food and beverage products. The Stainless King series creates a new chapter in Thermos' history with a modern line that blends the newest technology with a dash of the past. We have all experienced the "dreaded dribble" down the front of us with travel mugs.  This ultra-durable travel mug (for hot and cold beverages) features a leak-proof Drinklock sealing lid.  The unbreakable stainless steel interior and exterior stays cool to the touch with hot liquids and is condensation-free with cold liquids.  This travel mug also features TherMax double wall vacuum insulation for maximum temperature retention, hot or cold.  The blue travel mug is currently available on Amazon for $20.60.  (Also available in "cranberry" for $27.99)

For the Sports Fan

From mugs to travel mugs, you can find a mug to help any sports fan "sport" their favorite team.  Check out the MLB and NFL mugs available on Amazon.  College Fan?  No problem, you can find a mug for your favorite university.  (prices vary)

For the Coffee Addict - Prescription Coffee Mug

For the coffee lover or addict, this mug says it all.  This mug looks like a prescription bottle with hilarious puns about coffee that any "Java Joe Espresso" will enjoy.  Available on Amazon for $10.60.  This novelty mug is among many noveltyies offered by Big Mouth Toys.

World's Largest Coffee Mug

For the coffee lover that can't seem to have enough coffee (or trying to keep their coffee consumption to 1 cup per day).  This novelty mug will symbolize their love of coffee.  The 6.5" (15.9 cm) tall, 10" (25.4 cm) in diameter real porcelain cup will hold 20 cups of coffee.  Available on Amazon for $59.95.  

Chalk Talk Mug

Another wonderful novelty mug for the person that likes to "doodle" or is constantly making notes on post-its.  No need for paper or post-it notes - they can now use the included chalk write directly their coffee mug.  You can write on the mug like a chalkboard then erase when you are done.  This 12-ounce mug is made of highly durable porcelain.  Available on Amazon for $18.43.  This mug is offered by Konitz - at Konitz everything revolves around mugs.  Check out the assortment of mugs, including other novelty mugs.  

Coffee Joulies

In a previous article, Go-Go-Gadget, we featured Coffee Joulies which deserves another mention as a perfect pairing with coffee mugs.  Coffee Joulies are engineered beans that cool coffee to the right temperature faster and then keep it there longer. Made in USA from 85% recycled stainless steel using hydro power from Niagara Falls.  Coffee Joulies will bring your coffee to a drinkable temperature sooner and keep it hot longer.  

Do you have gift suggestions for the coffee lover?  We would love to hear from you.

Thanks Daily Shot of Coffee for the list and reviews.
