Coffee – the mere thought of this beverage fills most of us with a sense of refreshment. Most of us kick the early morning blue away with a wonderful cup of coffee, others manage to stay awake at the office thanks to the espresso machine and then you come back home each evening to enjoy another lovely cup crafted specifically to suit your individual taste. How about taking that love to a whole new level by sporting a super-cool and ultra-creative coffee mug that adds to the fun times?
Coffee mugs are a way of expressing yourself and they come in all shapes, forms and types. You can even get custom-designed mugs with ease and while you might have stumbled upon some really cool designs in your local store, here are a few that surely stand out from the crowd. In terms of creativity, they simply give you as much kick as the caffeine-rich drink itself!
On Off Coffee Mug
Nothing too complex and yet beautifully crafted, this mug is designed to ensure that you never accidentally spill your beverage again. Fill the cup up with some hot coffee (or tea) and the giant ‘OFF’ on the cup changes to ‘ON’ along with a change in color from black to white. You simply cannot miss it, no matter how limited your intelligence might be!!
2 Carat Coffee Mug
The gold glaze on the ring-shaped handle along with a stunning Swarovski crystal give you a beautiful accessory that you can sport every time you have a drink. There is also a silver handle option and hence you can pick one of your choice and these mugs should cost you nothing more than $25, depending on where you are getting them from.
Darth Vader Mug
We know Sheldon Cooper would love one of these and hopefully so would many of your ‘Star Wars’ buddies as you take a sip out of the dark lord himself. Okay, it sounds a bit iffy when put like that, but otherwise this mug looks really looks like a great addition to the collection sported by any fan of the franchise.
The Gun Mug
Designed by Chilli Chilly,a Hong Kong-based design studio, this one surely puts a bit of power in your hands. Available for $17.50, they are perfect for those who would love to flirt with the bad side; while resting on their comfortable couch, of course!
Camera Lens Coffee Mug
Great for those who consider themselves as the ultimate shutter bugs, these camera lens coffee mug designs are becoming popular by the day. As if the simple designs were not enough, you get varied lens designs that imitate the latest, original camera lens form to perfection and you even have a choice between Canon and Nikon.
Coffee Bean Mug- All the Way!
We are not sure if this coffee mug design is available on a commercial scale, but even if it is not, this is probably one of the coolest designs you will ever come across. A coffee mug that is decorated with coffee beans; if that does not proclaim your love for the drink, nothing else ever will.
Drink Selector Gets the Job Done
Not in a mood to tell the host which drink you want and how you would want it? Maybe your mother-in-law is visiting home and it is best to keep the conversation to a minimum (It happens, trust us!) Well, the smart and creative mug will take care of things for you. The Drink Selector is all about keeping the banter to a minimum.
Knuckle Duster Mug Makes a Point!
Talk about looking bad; If you wish to punch in a sense of proper taste into someone, then this mug with brass knuckles-styled handle should be the weapon of your choice. Coming with chromed ceramic knuckles, this is a gift that most guys would gladly receive; even if they are as far away from being ‘rough and tough’ as humanly possible.
Melting Ice Berg Cup
Some of you might have had it with the whole ‘global warming’ concept, but irrespective of whether you support the awareness campaigns or not, you have to love the idea of this mug. The surface of the cup is covered with an ‘Ice Berg’ motif and as you fill it up with hot beverage, the ice melts and the ocean level rises. It apparently is the magic of ‘heat sensitive ink’. Now, the idea is cool, but can we try it with hot super models on top and a dress that melts off with heat please! Who would not buy that?
Minecraft Creeper Face Square Coffee Mug
Fan of Minecraft? Even if you are, nobody is too fond of those pesky little creepers. But this cup is designed to play exactly on that fear of yours so that you are no longer dozy in any way. The design is pretty simple and should add plenty of variety to your coffee mug collection.
Making the perfect cup of coffee is a refined art too and while all of us are not well versed with it, ‘My Cuppa Coffee’ allows us to still enjoy the ideal blend by providing with a perfect color code on the inside of the cup. From a light and milky mix to a strong and sturdy blend, just follow the color code and you are on your way to sipping a divine cup.
Yes, before you even try to ask the question, we are too lazy to ‘even stir’. We are just out of bed, eyes are still not completely wide open and we are not sure if we are really up or just dreaming; we could use a bit of assistance and the self stirring mug offers that gleefully. Just push the button and get the job done, the prefect way to warm up for the remainder of the day which involves more pushing of buttons.
Does a bit of caffeine give you too much of a kick? Well, we are here to help solve any problem of yours and when it comes to kicking you down and bringing you back to earth with a sense of negativity and cynicism, nothing works like the Pessimist’s Mug. That is of course, if you actually care for the message on top of the mug and since those who made the mug say that they pride themselves on ‘crushing your dreams‘, you might be even motivated to prove them wrong! Nothing works like a bit of ‘reverse psychology’
Stacked Coffee Mug
need an extra shot of your drink but are not too keen on refilling too many times? Well, we have stacked the deck in your favor here as this unusual mug holds good 8 oz. of liquid and also helps your stand out from the more mundane crowd around you. It is not just about getting the conversation started, but also about keeping it going for a while.
Platinum Guitar Mug for Music Lovers
Love your music? That seems like a stupid question since these days everyone seems to enjoy their own selection of tunes on iPods and smartphones. Well, here is another way of showcasing your love for rocking tunes as this Platinum Guitar Mug with specially crafted black electric guitar handle sparkles with glee. Something this stylish and cool just takes your mind back to the ‘King’.
No, this one is not for your pet. Designed exclusively for humans alone, this is arguably the least classy coffee mug you could sport and considering the stuff we have seen, that covers plenty of ground. It is one way of showing your wife how well she serves the drinks. But before you do gift her one, just make sure all your stuff is packed and the hotel room is booked for the next week. Well, at least she cannot complain about leaving the seat up!
