School’s back in session. For so many of us, it means a new wake up time that throws off our summer senses and plunges us into the harsh reality that is bus schedules, back packs, and early mornings. Such occasions require a pick me up, and believe me, coffee is at the top of my list. Not only do I love my strong, caffeine packed drink that takes me from mombie to functioning human, but I love the mugs and travel cups that I carry it in.
I’ve put together a list of some of the best cups, mugs, tumblers, and travel thermoses to help you find the perfect accessory for your morning (and let’s be honest, afternoon and evening too) brew.
WeeStructed Tiny Humans Mug – the perfect statement to sum up so many of our lives. A California based company that keeps mamas and littles in style, WeeStructed sure knows how to win us over with simple, sweet, and versatile ways to make coffee cups the new “it” accessory. This awesome mug is available in two colors and as a travel option as well!
Mulberry Press Co. YOU ARE ENOUGH Mug – Oh my love for this sweet company is unparalleled. For a motivational spin on your morning beverage, consider this wonderful reminder that you do enough, you have enough, you are enough. Mamas everywhere, this is a battle cry; a message of strength. Mulberry Press Co. also has numerous other mugs that may tickle your fancy, or hey, get one of each!
MODCLOTH A Way With Crosswords Mug – For all of you who need a little intellectual stimulation, why not kickstart your day with this mug? Start your caffeinated day with hot coffee and a crossword puzzle. When you’re done, pop this baby in the dishwasher and voila! You can start over. Every month, log onto the site provided when you receive the mug for new puzzles.
Cognitive Surplus Coffee Chemistry Mug – Science, ladies and gents. The wonderful bond (get it, bond!) between a parent and their morning coffee… a covalent relationship predicated on the beautiful chemistry that keeps our eyes open and our minds alert. Novelty is an amazing thing, why not have it on your morning coffee? And heck, teach the kids the most important chemical makeup that helps the world keep spinning.
Death Wish Coffee Travel Mug – 16 oz. Double-walled. Vacuum insulated. This babe is the perfect companion from the moment you wake up to when you drive your little ones to school. This travel mug boasts an ability to keep coffee hot for up to 6 hours and keep your iced drinks frosty for more than 24 hours. I first came across Death Wish Coffee in January and let me tell you, the coffee has magical properties and 200% more caffeine than your average cup. Go get some, like now.
So there you have it folks, five completely kick ass, awesome, and perfect mugs to get you ready to take on the fall semester. Whether you or your kids are heading back to school, you’ll be caffeinated, hip to the core, and ready to take on the day.
