Finding the perfect Christmas gifts can be nerve-wracking and time-consuming. You want to show your appreciation to as many colleagues, friends, and family members as possible, but it can be very challenging to find meaningful gifts that won’t wipe out your year-end bonus. What complicates the search is the fact that you don’t want to give gifts for the sake of the occasion, but rather you want the item to be something they will appreciate.

If you think about the presents you receive each year, the most memorable ones aren’t the most expensive or elaborate. Instead, the ones that stand out are the simple items that the sender put a little more thought and effort into. When you want to be practical but sentimental at the same time, a coffee mug ticks all the right boxes.

This upcoming holiday season, if you want to give out more than just funny Christmas cards, gift your loved ones with a coffee mug instead. With a mug, you won’t have to worry if the size fits the recipient. It’s a non-perishable gift unlike chocolates or candy, so you can give it as early as you like or wait till the last possible minute.

If you want to avoid the hassle of going from store to store picking out a unique gift for each person, here are several reasons why coffee mugs are the better choice:


  1. It’s a useful item

You would be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn’t have a coffee mug or uses one on a daily basis. Mugs serve a multitude of purposes that don’t involve beverage-drinking. They can substitute for a measuring cup, muffin mould, toothbrush stand, pencil holder, or paperweight, among other things. Even if the person doesn’t drink coffee, it makes the perfect tea, hot chocolate, or eggnog cup to drink out of.


  1. It will be easy to wrap

Most mugs come in a square box. If you’ve ever wrapped a gift using wrapping paper you know how easy it is to tackle an evenly-shaped item. You can also choose to use a gift bag, wrap it in magazine pages, or simply stick a festive ribbon on top. Don’t forget to attach a funny or rude Christmas card and give the recipient a reason to laugh as they unveil your unique present.


  1. It won’t break the bank

These days, it’s necessary to be prudent. While giving gifts is a completely optional tradition, some people do enjoy giving gifts. If you don’t want to skip out on this years’ gift-giving, a coffee mug is a simple yet substantial gift that will fit any budget.


  1. You can customise each one

Instead of spending time picking unique items, why not pick one item that you can customise for each person? Customising your coffee mugs is a great way to make them extra-special. Pick an inside joke, a favourite motivational quote, or the person’s name and you will have a gift that your friend or family member won’t want to part with.


As the saying goes, it’s the thought that counts. This year, show your loved ones how much you mean to them with a simple but extraordinary present. You can turn a plain, ubiquitous item into an invaluable surprise for each person on your Christmas list with a personalized coffee mug.
