Okay, I’ll admit it: I love coffee. It’s hard for me to start my day off on the right foot without my morning cup of joe. (Black. No cream. No sugar.) And with coffee being a staple in my morning routine so too are the mugs that transport my precious daily dose of liquid caffeine. I’m a bit of a sucker for a cute and kitschy coffee mug—one that embodies the perfect balance of style and character. I figure, why not inject a little fun and variety into your usual daily routine? I like to keep my living space clean and contemporary, which leaves room for a little bit of fun when it comes to my decorative additions.
Dot and Bo has a particularly great selection of fun mugs. Their College Ruled Mug, decorated with binder paper–esque line patterning, would have proved an appropriately themed go-to cup during my many college all-nighters or early morning prep for a dreaded 8 a.m. class.
An enthusiastic lover of the rustic aesthetic, I’m always down for a splinter-free taste of the great outdoors. I’ve fallen for this ceramic mug set with its cool wood grain-like texturing. This modern woodland-themed Antler Mug also delivers a subtle bout of character with its charming handle design.
Chic and quirky, these designs are also conveniently dishwasher safe—a quality I tend to look out for. And while I enjoy indulging in this useful luxury, I’ll cave in and habitually hand wash a truly special vessel. This Peanuts Flying Ace Spinner Mug from Houzz is one such worthy piece. An avid fan of the iconic comic strip and its associated gang of characters, I couldn’t help but ogle over this themed mug. Decorated with a delightful comic-style landscape and a spinning aviator Snoopy, I know this cup will help start any day off on a happy note.
