When I went off the college my mom got me a mug. Not just any mug, but a mug with my dog's face on it.
I thought it was kind of silly, but it always came in handy. Heck, even my roommates liked that mug! So much so that the interior was stained brown from how often it was filled with black tea.
These mugs are not like my college mug, but they certainly are winners as well. Each is ceramic, but has its own story + unique design elements. I love these mugs because they are effectively like art pieces but they are incredibly functional. Shop them all below!
