This year, I bought several mugs to give out as Christmas presents. Mugs are something that I don't normally buy for other people but that I always want to buy for myself. Anthony and I have a bunch already and since it's only the two of us, we obviously have more than enough. But mugs really reflect a person's personality. Based on the style, color or graphics on the outside, you can tell a bit about a person.
Bon Appetit had a post on their blog today featuring 6 of their favorites mugs to give as last-minute gifts. I love them all but here are a few of my favorites:
This one is simple and classic but I love that you can see through it. These are the same type of mug that the Cheesecake Factory uses and I order coffee when we're there just to see the cream mix with the black coffee.
I really love these Bridge and Tunnel mugs from Fish's Eddy. (I bought one of my bosses an awesome New York Times crossword puzzle mug from there for Christmas). I like the drawings and the 'city vibe' I get when I look at them.
And here is a Pantone mug for art-loving, decorating people. I don't paint or redecorate very often but I still think it's awesome to drink out of a paint chip mug. I would choose a different color though, maybe a blue or a peach.
Do you have a favorite mug? Right now, my most-used mug is a huge blue bowl-like cup that I've had since college. I wonder what that says about me.
