Are you touched by the coffee craze every morning? Do you feel completely awake only after taking a few sips of the warm, tasty, coffee you start your days with? Then, you are probably very much aware of the pleasure of using nice colorful coffee mugs either at home or at the office, and if they are personalized: that's even better! Though we are used to serving coffee from nice porcelain cups when we go to a pub or a restaurant, coffee mugs are the ones most suitable for home-use. People usually have one favorite coffee mug they like to drink from, and this small item is perfectly integrated in the morning routine.
Some coffee mugs can be personalized on purchase with full imprinting of funny messages, pictures, or even photos. Some people would rather drink their coffee at the office from a mug that reads their name; whereas at home, there is a certain feeling of coziness related to using a favorite mug. For people who want to surprise friends or family with an original gift, coffee mugs make excellent choices particularly since they can render a funny message under the form of a logo. Many souvenir shops also sell coffee mugs on Mother's day, Christmas or Easter Day with suggestive pictures for such times of the year.
Coffee mugs can also be used as promotional items for companies that organize advertising campaigns. There are stores who present good customers with such gifts around the holidays or during specific marketing promotions, as well as at charity events for instance. Such coffee mugs need to show the name of the company and the contact details, as well as a suggestive logo; furthermore, the color choice could be very important and most companies usually order such items made in the colors that characterize their business.
Furthermore, coffee houses and cafés sometimes use coffee mugs as decorative items on display; there are actually complete collections of such items arranged on shelves, thus creating a colorful and pleasant atmosphere. The most exquisite and expensive coffee mugs that you'll find in a souvenir shop for instance, are those that are hand-painted. They take a lot more time to make and they are usually unique, designed in local workshops or by people for whom hobby and job are one and the same; there will be nobody else drinking coffee from a mug identical to yours.
