# 4 Curvaceous Hold Me Cups
A tea cup from JFish Designs which invites the tea enthusiasts to wrap their hands around for a warm drinking experience. Single cups have a unique organic shape perfect for a feeling of comfort and aesthetic pleasure while enjoying the flavor of your favorite tea.
As a set, the cups interact with each other when placed side by side. The cups are slip cast in ceramic stoneware or earthenware and finished with food-safe glazes. They are available in white with contrasting interior colors like vibrant blue or passionate red.
# 5 Tea Code Cup for Tea Relaxation
If you’re a tea bag fan or simply like to enjoy a nice cup of tea at work and bagged tea seems like the natural choice, then the tea code cup from Kedo Design is just perfect for you. The groovy designed mug features a cute button on it with a special purpose: lace up your tea bag around the button for a comfortable and pleasant tea experience.
The cup was not invented just for catching up and enjoying merry moment every afternoon, but also for keeping the tea bag neatly nestling in your cup. Secondly, it’s also pretty smart that the cup has two layers which allow the heat to dissipate a lot better than a single walled cup, eliminating the need for a handle.
# 6 Punch Mug
I would say that the design of this cup is always perfect as a gift for a work colleague to diplomatically say: “I would punch you in the face if you don’t leave me alone during my tea break”.
Now seriously speaking this cup has nothing to do with violence, it’s a nice reminder of how important is to break the daily routine, from time to time. The mug is made of high-fired ivory ceramic and features a slightly concave side, being smoothly rounded rim and steady base.
#7 Gun Mug
Why not go slow in life, live each moment like it is the last one and take time to enjoy a mug full of tea or coffee every day? Just kill your time with a mug like this! Who says time is the master of the Universe?
Designed by Chillichilly, a Hong Kong-based design studio, this mug is made entirely of porcelain having a platinum plated trigger. This mug is made to remind you every day of the importance and of the uniqueness of each moment, so break a little your routine and enjoy your favorite beverage from a mug made as a celebration of life, not of death as you may think when you first lay eyes on it.
# 8 Drink Selector Mug
Tired of always telling people at home or at the office what’s your favorite drink or how do you prefer your tea or coffee? Here’s the solution to your beverage mix up problems: the drink selector mug! How does it work? As simple as twisting the stainless steel metal bands to reveal your drink of choice.
Choose from Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate or Herb Tea on the top band – then Black, White, Cream or Lemon from the middle band – and finally the number of sugars you want at the bottom ranging from 0 (your already sweet enough) to 3 (you will probably be hyper for about an hour and your teeth will fall out pretty soon).
# 9 On/Off Mug
The first thought when you’ll see this mug would be: “What’s so special about it? It’s just a black and white mug with those on/off words on it”, and you’ll be right because the real trick about this mug is to actually use it.
If at the beginning the mug is black with the word off on it, nothing special, after you put in your favorite beverage the mug will change colors and will become white with the word “on” on it. Pretty cool, isn’t it? So turn on your magic cup and enjoy your favorite drink. I would say it goes really well as a gift.
# 10 Link Mugs
Everybody has been there and I don’t think you, dear reader, make an exception. There comes a time when your friends, coworkers or family will ask you to bring them a mug of their favorite beverage. The funny part is that you only have two hands and they are more, so what can be done?
You can always use a tray and spill the drinks or you can do it in a simpler way: use the link mugs. Each mug in the set has an elegantly formed cross on the side of each mug fits neatly into the next, forming a self supporting row of up to 6 mugs. So there’s no tray, no mess and absolutely no fuss. The concept is the creation of Yanko Design.
Dare to simply change something during a day, to spice up a little bit your life and do something different even if that means to simply buy a creative mug and haveyour favorite drink from it before you go to work. What mug do you think would inspire you to smile and feel good each morning?
