Buying coffee mugs is one of those things most people do not really put a lot of thought into. If it is something that can hold coffee, it is fine right? That is true unless you love your coffee and you are very particular about your drink and the container that holds it.
If you are an avid coffee drinker, you need to spend a little more care when you are shopping for cups, particularly the insulated ones.
You can also buy the cute wifey hubby coffee mugs online and personalized tea cups.
When you are in the kitchen aisle at a department store, resist the urge to grab and buy the first mug you see. If you do a lot of your shopping online, do not click on the 'Buy It Now!' button for the mug that comes up first on your eBay search results.
First, what is your main purpose for buying a coffee mug? Do you want to have a mug that you can use every day when you sit down for breakfast and drink your morning coffee in leisure?
Do you want a mug that you can take with you to work? If it is the latter, you will want to get yourself an insulated travel mug that will be able to withstand travel. For this, you need to take note of how big the cup holder in your car is.
You will want a model that will snugly fit in your car's cup holder. You can find this style with both flared and narrow bases with flared being more appropriate for desktop use and narrow for minimum space usage.
