If you’re like us, your mornings begin with the alarm going off (hitting the snooze button a couple o’ times), dragging yourself out of bed and stumbling to the coffeemaker or teapot to get your caffeine fix. This task can seem even harder on a day like today (Monday…groan!), but that’s where a cool coffee mug or tea cup can come in handy. It’s that little ray of sunshine on an otherwise super sleepy, I-don’t-want-to-go-to-work-today kind of morning.
We scoured the internet to find 10 mugs we thought were either cute or cool (and a couple that we thought were even a little strange.) So whip up your favorite brew, add one lump (or two!) and join us as we take a look at the fun mugs below, which we hope make waking up in the morning just a little more pleasant.
Panda Friends Mug & Spoon Set, $24.00
This mug from UrbanOutfitters.com comes with a matching spoon that features a panda playing peekaboo on the brim.
It’s a good thing this Rubik’s Cube Mug from ThinkGeek.com comes already solved, otherwise we’re sure we’d end up with coffee in our laps.
This Cookie Monster mug from EntertainmentEarth.com begs to be filled with milk and have cookies dunked in it. NOM!
Feel like the star athlete of your favorite MLB team when you have your name printed on this personalized mug from PersonalCreations.com.
Why would anyone want to drink out of a mug shaped like a toliet? We don’t know, either. But the good news is, there’s no seat, so you won’t have to worry about get yelled at for leaving the seat up again. From SpencersOnline.com.
Use the included chalk to label drinks, draw a picture or write messages on these microwave/dishwasher safe 12-ounce mugs.
Café Olé Mug, $28.99
While we’ve never actually met a Spanish speaking penguin, this little guy is still pretty stinking cute. He comes with a little saucer sombrero, perfect for holding your sugar cubes or tea bags. From ModCloth.com.
Stacked Up 3 Coffee Cups in 1, $11.20
Here’s a teacup fit for the Mad Hatter himself. It’s one teacup designed to look like a wobbling stack of three.
If your morning brew doesn’t give you a jolt, the surprise of looking down into your drink and seeing a open-jawed shark staring back at you will. From McPhee.com.
Self Stirring Mug, $18.99
This mug from ThinkGeek.com knows you’re tired in the morning, so it takes the work out of stirring your drink by doing it for you. Just press the button and voila! A perfectly stirred drink. Now if we could only get more things done in the morning with just the press of a button!
