Last summer, we had a post of 20 Best Gizmos and Gadgets For Your Mug. After a year has passed, we decided to refresh this list. So here you go – this time, a list of 12 awesome mugs:
1. Mood Mugs.
We all have our good and bad days. Didn’t get much sleep after doing budgets all night or struggling from a “Case of the Mondays?” There hasn’t been a better way to let everyone around the office know! [Source]
2. Zipper Tea Cups.
Designed specifically to hold a tea bag string, these zipper cups are sure to be “your cup of tea” and will bring more fun in your daily routine. [Source]
3. Pantone Mugs.
If you’re into design and printing, you gonna love these pantone mugs. “Pantone” is a system for matching colors – so instead of carrying around a color palette book, you can roll around with a cool mug to check if a new brochure matches your corporate colors! [Source]
4. Camera Lens Mug.
If you’re into photography, this $24 lens mug is a cool accessory for an SLR camera. Next time they ask you “What size,” forget the usual “venti” or “grande” and just say “24-105mm.” [Source]
5. Face Mug.
This face mug will gladly keep your donuts or cookies close to your drink without taking a bite. Perfect for the office — where you know it is always a problem to find a plate. [Source]
6. Mustache Mugs.
Turn your ordinary mug into a masquerade! Guys, you now can try out different mustaches and decide which one gets the best approval rating. Mugs designed by Peter Ibruegger.
7. Edible Mug.
This eco-friendly mug, designed by Enrique Luis Sardi for Lavazza is made completely out of pastry, covered with a special icing sugar — serving as an insulator and making it water-, soda-, or coffee-proof. Enjoy your favorite beverage and then eat the mug!
8. Pessimist’s mug.
This mug, available on Despair.com, is a sure way to show the world who you really are. Is it “half-full” or “half-empty?” This mug has an answer.
9. Heart Mugs.

11. ‘Skase’ Cup.
This mug by Steve Watson was nominated for ‘100 Most Beautiful Objects in the World 2010′ (by Pulchra.org) and based on the idea of symbiosis: “A close, prolonged association between two or more different organisms of different species that may, but does not necessarily, benefit each member.”
12. Music Mug!
Yes, that’s right–you can enjoy your favorite music AND a beverage at the same time. A small speaker installed at the bottom of this cup will produce some visible sound waves in your drink. Touch controls for playback & music volume. [Source]
