Mugs For Mom Reviewed

Perfect Gifts For Mom...Mugs

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I thought reviewing some mugs for Mom might be a helpful post for today. Personally, I think these are fun little gifts to give to Mom on just about any occasion. I would venture a guess and say that most Moms would be happy with a new mug to drink her coffee, tea or other hot beverages in. It is useful and every time she uses it she will think of the person who gave it to her. 

I am partial to the quirky and whimsical mugs, myself. Not that I don't appreciate ones that are pretty or have a nice sentiment on them; but the ones that make me start my day with a chuckle are my favorites. 

The mug above makes me giggle! I do love a doughnut once in a while, especially if it is a fresh one and I will admit that there are plenty of mornings in my memories when I just wanted to look at the kids and say, "I do not care; at least not until my caffeine kicks in!" Of course I never said those words out loud but they were in my mind a time or two. With a mug like this one, I could have just shown it to them and smiled.

This next mug is a favorite of mine this year and I will probably get one for my oldest daughter this year for a Mother's Day gift. She is like her Momma and needs that caffeine boost in the morning. This one has ample room for a larger portion of coffee as it is a 14 ounce cup. When she is home for a visit she always chooses one of my larger mugs to give her the larger amount of coffee in, so this one is perfect for her. Although, I wouldn't mind having it for myself.

I am only showing you just a couple of ideas to get you inspired to find the perfect mug for Mom. I am sure you will find one that fits your Mom's taste and possibly sense of humor. Mugs are great ideas for small children to get for their Mom for just about any occasion; although, my grown children still get me mugs for holiday and birthday gifts. Probably because they know I love them so much.

A fun idea after choosing a mug for Mom is to fill the mug with something before you give it to her. It doesn't have to be anything expensive or fancy, just something that adds to the moment. Small little candies are fun and you can still put the mug in the box that it came in. If Mom drinks tea, a few tea bags of her favorite blend is a nice idea. If she loves cocoa, find a fun recipe that you can put together in a plastic bag and add the dry ingredients to the mug. Mom can then just add hot water when she is ready to drink it.

One year, my daughter carefully lined a mug with plastic wrap, added dirt and then planted a small plant. She wrapped the entire thing in a pretty cellophane, tied a ribbon around it and gave it to me. It was so pretty! All I had to do was replant into a small pot and I had the mug, too. A fun and clever idea that I absolutely cherished.

How about you? Would you enjoy a Mom mug for Mother's Day or any gifting time? Would you give your Mom one? Would it be pretty, sentimental or whimsical?

  1. Beverly, I love (gotta have) coffee and I ALWAYS drink it out of mugs (dainty little coffee cups are way too small... LOL). Having a special mug for mom from my (grown) children (or even one of the grandchildren) would be the perfect gift. I really like the idea of adding something to the mug (i.e. tea bags or cocoa mix) and your daughter's plant idea was really clever. I enjoyed your review. Now.... time for more coffee! :)

  2. This mom loves mugs! In fact, I used my favorite for so long it actually developed a leak. Therefore, I could use another one just for me and Mother's Day would be the perfect occasion for that.

  6. These are perfect gift ideas. I never have enough mugs and each time I drink my coffee (mom fuel) when I look at the cup I remember the person who gave it to me.....it brings back lots of great memories. I also love the plant in the mug idea. Very cute.

  7. Among the gifts I treasure most are the special thought-fully chosen mugs my children gave me as gifts. I wish the children had lasted as long as the mugs, but the love that picked them out and the messages on the mugs remain.
