Buying guide to buying the perfect mug 

When it comes to choosing the perfect mug, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Here is a buying guide to help you choose the mug that fits your needs:

1. Consider the size of the mug.

Will you be using it for coffee, tea, or soup?

If you plan on using it for coffee, you'll want a larger mug so you can get a good cup of joe. For tea, a smaller mug might be better so you can appreciate the delicate flavors of your favorite tea leaves. And if you're looking for a soup mug, make sure it's big enough to hold a good amount of soup!

We have noticed that finding large coffee mugs that don't look generic is difficult so we have looked long and hard for you.  You will find many good examples in out kitchen section on

2. Think about the material. Mugs can be made from ceramic, glass, or even metal. Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks. Ceramic mugs are classic and timeless, but they can break if dropped. Glass mugs are sleek and modern, but they might not be the best choice if you're looking for an insulated mug. And metal mugs can be great for keeping your drinks hot or cold, but they might not be as safe to use in the microwave as other materials.

3. Choose a style that fits your personality. There are mugs for every type of person out there! Whether you're into funny sayings or prefer something more minimalist, there's a mug out there that's perfect for you.

4. Consider the price. Mugs can range in price from a few pounds to hundreds of pounds. It all depends on the material, design, and brand. If you're looking for an affordable option, try searching for mugs at your local thrift store. For something more luxurious, look for designer mugs or opt for a handcrafted option on where we have curated the most original mugs out there.

Happy shopping!
