Gift Idea for Dad - the Man Mug

The Man Mug
What to do when the Father in your life doesn't wear ties and Father's Day is fast approaching?  As I am browsing for items that would make great gifts for dad, I have found something that, based on the reviews, I am also considering buying for myself.  I think the Man Mug would be a great gift for many of our Dads. 


What is so special about the Man Mug?


This is the description of the mug from the folks at Man Mug 

"... 16.9-ounce beauty is made of top quality stainless steel designed to hold a pint of beer with room for a thick, foamy head."

In addition to holding a pint of beer, the mug is made with double walled construction in order to keep cold drinks cold (or hot drinks hot). This construction also keeps the mug from sweating. No need for coasters (or Mom yelling at Dad because he forgot the coasters.) The thick handle doesn't transfer the cold or heat. 

The Man Mug

I own a stainless steel mug. I love my mug. There is something good about drinking a cold beer from it. Or making a root beer float in it. But my stainless steel mug, as much as I love it and will continue to love it, is not insulated. As a result, it sweats everywhere. Including dripping onto my lap. This Man Mug seems to be an awesome improvement in an already awesome mug idea.


The Best Gift for Dad


Let's not forget the very best gift for dad. The best gift we can give a parent is the gift of our time. My father is many miles away and I will not be able to spend time with him in person.  But if I could, I would consider taking him this mug, and one for myself, along with a six pack of beer so that we could just sit and chat.  

He may or may not love the mug as I think he would, but I guarantee he'd love the beer and the visit.

  2. This Man Mug sounds terrific, Dawn Rae. Beer tastes the most perfect when it is good and cold (in my opinion) and having a mug that is insulated to keep the drink cold while consuming is ideal.

  3. Aww, love your message. Love this mug, too, and for the main reason you mentioned, the insulation so it doesn't drip on the drinker. Awesome product, great review!

    1. I had to laugh this evening, as my favorite - but uninsulated steel mug, dripped a puddle right into my lap. Forget dad, I want a Man Mug!

  5. I think both my father and my husband would love receiving the Man Mug for Father's Day. I enjoy a nice root beer float myself on occasion, so maybe one of them would share with me. Excellent suggestion for Father's Day!

    1. Thank you. I need to make a list of who to order these for. I'm sure my sons and their wives would love these too. Maybe we'll have a Mug-gy Christmas!
