Here are some tips on how to choose the best coffee mug for someone else.

  • If the person happens to be an officemate, try to observe the kind of cup that he or she often uses. This will give you an idea of his or her preferences. The problem is when the person you intend to give the mug to is someone you don’t see often.
  • If you are not sure about the type of mug the person goes for, you will never go wrong with a travel coffee mug. Make sure it’s double walled and has excellent stability. Additionally, consider getting one with a slightly smaller base to fit into the cup holders of cars.
  • Unless the person is a lover of large cups, go for the smaller ones like 12 ounces as these have become the standard size through the years. It also makes for a good desktop organizer of his or her other things.
  • As for the shape, it really doesn’t matter unless you know the person’s personal preferences.
