    There are few things as soothing as holding a warm mug filled with your favorite hot beverage while snuggled under a cozy blanket.


    Mmm, don't you feel all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it?

    Make that moment even more special by treating yourself to a new mug this winter. Here are some fun suggestions:

    1. A gorgeous marbled mug to add an element of style to your morning coffee routine.


    Promising review: "These mugs are so pretty! My husband and I need two mugs for our morning coffee. I bought pink and gray ones for us. The marble texture is unique as described and it's big enough for daily use. Highly recommended, will order again." —Haojie Dong

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    2. A tarot card-inspired mug for the homebody who loves nothing more than cancelled Friday night plans.

    Promising review: "I love the picture (which is on both sides of cup). I first saw this as the hermit card on Pinterest and it kind of reminded me of myself. Glad to have found it on a coffee cup!" —Lynn D.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    3. A floral insulated travel mug to fill with tea, coffee, or cocoa and take with ya as you run out the door to work or school.


    Promising review: "I'm a bit of a cup/mug snob. I was skeptical because of all the frilly looking art. I thought that the plastic handle and mouth piece would fall short... because they are plastic. Little did I know, the plastic is thick, sturdy, and does not conduct heat. So, my piping hot tea stays piping hot only to my throat. Not my lips, not my hands. The cup is generously sized, so I don't have to refill prematurely." —BuckeyeRebel

    Get it from Walmart for $7 (available in two styles).

    4. A mug that can be customized with the cutest pics of the ones you love most (AKA your dog).

    Promising review: "Is there anything cozier than cradling a hot cup of tea in bed on a cold winter night? Why yes — all of the above, but with a mug that shows off you and your loved one's best photos!" —letisia arce

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. A Luke's Diner mug that'll pay tribute to both Lorelai and Rory's obsession with "coffee-coffee-coffee" and yours with Gilmore Girls.

    BethLynnDesigns / Etsy

    Even Emily Gilmore wouldn't find something to complain about when it comes to this mug.

    Get it from BethLynnDesigns on Etsy for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    6. A special mug to commemorate arguably one of the most moving moments in Disney movie history (feel free to quote me on that).


    Don't even act like you didn't burst into tears when the Mulan’s precious Father uttered these words in the movie. Now you can keep that moment with you always (or at least when you're sipping on some tea).

    Get it from shopDisney for $18.95.

    7. An educational mug with the caffeine molecule printed on it — it'll have any science buff ~in their element~.

    Promising review: "I purchased this product as a gift for my daughter's chemistry teacher. It is unique, very accurate, and functional! The crystal clear glass and measurement markings are exactly what you see in a lab beaker. The caffeine molecule is the crowning touch. I would highly recommend this product for its accuracy, quality, and fun factor." —Fun2mom

    Get it from Amazon for $10.85.

    8. A dog mug that'll make you feel like a ~wiener~ every time you take a sip of your coffee.

    Forever 21

    Hot dog! Where has this mug been all of my life?

    Get it from Forever 21 for $7.

    9. A heat-changing mug you can fill to the brim with caffeine, essential for anyone who needs to recharge their batteries throughout the work day.


    Promising review: "Got this for my dad's Christmas gift and he loved it. I tested it with some hot water before I gave it to him to make sure it worked and WOW it changes a lot faster than I expected. At least when it heats up. Don't expect it to change fast when they drink from it because I poured out the hot water and even sat the cup in front of a fan to cool it down faster and it still took a solid five minutes before it even started to fade back to the original." —Taylor G.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. An Ariana Grande mug you'll fangirl over each morning while downing your cup of coffee.

    TypeLeaguePress / Etsy

    Did I peer pressure my sister into buying Ariana Grande concert tickets with me this year? Perhaps. Will I continue to build her excitement about the concert by gifting her this mug at random? 100%.

    Get it from TypeLeaguePress on Etsy for $13.99+ (available in two sizes).

    11. A Chip teacup, perfect for a spot of tea or for displaying next to your extensive collection of Disney films.


    OK so this ceramic cup is actually for display only, but I own it and can promise you it's the cutest thing you'll ever spend your hard-earned dollars on.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $15.90.

    12. A stainless steel tumbler, a must-have if you're always running late but also need a caffeine fix because DAMNIT you overslept again.

    Promising review: "I love this mug!!! I tend to drink my coffee slowly at work over 2–3 hours and this mug keeps it warm! Obviously it's not going to keep it as warm as when I put it in a Hydro Flask that has a completely closed lid but it works pretty dang well. I would definitely recommend this mug!" —WolfePack

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in 10 oz, 12 oz, 22oz, and 32 oz, and in 17 colors).

    13. A meaty mug that'll impress any burger-lover, regardless of whether they're loyal to Shake Shake or In-N-Out.

    Amazon, Bek O'Connell

    Is anyone else oddly getting hungry from this double-decker mug? Excuse me, I need to place a Seamless order.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.04.

    14. An amazing mug tribute to one of The Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda Medley, that'll quickly become your fave cup to cuddle while watching Bravo.

    PoppedCultureCo / Etsy

    If Dorinda isn't your girl (I can't imagine WHY not) you can also check out mugs featuring other iconic Bravo celebs like Teresa Giudice or Stassi Schroeder!

    Promising review: "OMG these mugs look amazing in person. The print on there is such high quality. I am very impressed and I can't wait to give this to my friend for her birthday at the end of the month." —ginamariagar

    Get it from PoppedCultureCo on Etsy for $15+ (available in 11 oz or 20 oz).

    15. A mug with a built-in buddy, so you'll never feel lonely when you're sipping on some sleepy time tea.

    Promising review: "Poor little panda... you almost don't want to fill the cup up in fear of drowning the poor little nubbins. All jokes aside, these are adorable mugs. A great gift for panda lovers! Just FYI...I'd wash these by hand (just in case) I have had no problems or anything, but I can tell these need the gentle touch of a hand for washing." —Branden Wansel

    Get it from Amazon for $11.06+ (available in 15 styles).

    16. A casual camping mug to keep you company the next time you and your friends are hanging out fireside.


    Promising review: "I purchased both the green and blue mugs for our RV. I was nothing short of stunned at the quality! These are heavy ceramic mugs — you cannot tell from the pictures just how substantial these mugs really are. The only minor criticism I have is that they are not larger (I LOVE coffee!). However, they hold the advertised amount (15 oz) so that detail cannot detract from their value. VERY pleased with this product." —VA Campers

    Get it from Amazon for $10.44+ (available in 10 styles).

    17. A Game Boy mug that'll make you nostalgic for the days before full-time jobs when you could game from morning to night.


    When you add hot water into the mug, the screens on either side of it light up with classic Super Mario scenes!

    Get it from Firebox for $6.99.

    18. An animal-shaped mug with an extra spot to hold your tea bag that, like an elephant, you definitely won't forget any time soon!

    Promising review: "This mug was a gift for my best friend. She loves drinking hot coco with whip cream. She doesn't like drinking tea but the tea holder was perfect place to put the spoon in for whip cream! She was so happy when she saw this cute elephant mug." —Ai Miyazaki

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    19. An astrological mug that reveals constellations when you pour hot liquid into it — a must-have accessory for any snow day.


    You'll be seeing stars as soon as you indulge in your next cup of tea, coffee, or hot beverage.

    Promising review: "Product exactly as pictured, constellations show up with hot drinks like coffee. Made a super sweet gift to my honey who's always dreaming of the stars and sheepishly into astrology. Especially love the tip on the bottom of the mug: best used other side up!" —kengwen

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in three styles).

    20. A Haunted Mansion mug inspired by the wallpaper from the classic Disney ride you'll want to ~hurry back~ to for refills.


    The Haunted Mansion is my all-time favorite ride at Disney. There's something so ~spooky~ about climbing into a "doom buggy" and heading into the depths of the mansion. Bring that magic to your breakfast table with the help of this mug.

    Get it from Walmart for $22.99.

    21. A cat mug for all of your hot beverage needs right meow.


    Promising review: "I purchased this mug for myself, knowing full well it would be a desk decoration. It is currently storing Jelly Bellies on my desk at work. It does work well as a beverage mug, but I find the handle a bit close to the mug — not super ergonomic. The mug looks exactly as pictured, was well packaged, and arrived undamaged. This is a GREAT gift for a cat person. I am going to purchase the white for my daughter." —Sarah G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors).

    22. A Friends Central Perk mug that I promise will be there for you when the rain starts to pouuuur.

    Grab this mug the next time you and your friends the next time y'all gather for a Friends marathon. Shout out to you, Netflix, for not taking Ross, Monica, Rachel, and the gang away from us!

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    23. Or a turkey mug sporting a fez and sunglasses, for the real Friends enthusiasts.


    "You look so great, I love you!" If you know, you know.

    Get it from Firebox for $22.99.

    24. A Sriracha mug to sip out of while you kill time until your eggs are done cooking and you can smother them in spicy deliciousness.


    Promising review: "This mug is extremely well made and almost worthy of its high price tag. The red paint is just the right color and is very satisfying, and the green inside is tastefully done. I get a lot of compliments on this at work, wasn't expecting it! Keep in mind this mug is very, very large and will fit an obnoxious amount of coffee/soup. It is also quite heavy and can soak up a lot of heat if that is a consideration. So far the paint has stayed in perfect condition with dishwashing." —E. Joseph

    Get it from Amazon for $16.43.

    25. A hilarious mug you won't even want to drink out of because it's too funny and fabulous to pour a beverage into.

    NBC Store

    I'm giggling just hearing Stefon's voice in my head. He's easily the most knowledgeable of all the SNL correspondents — totally worthy of having a spot on your desk.

    Get it from NBC Store for $16.95+ (available in 11 oz or 15 oz).

    26. A mug set built for two, so instead of agreeing to test drive a tandem bicycle with your partner you can safely sip out of these instead.


    The only risk you'll face is sipping your drink before it has cooled down — much better than a skinned knee.

    Get a set of two from Anthropologie for $32.

    27. A morphing Marauders Map mug that'll ~magically~ appear when you fill it with a hot drink.


    Promising review: "Still amazing to watch and must have for Potter-lovers and coffee drinkers. This mug is simply awesome! It changes from a dark colored mug to the design shown in the photo once hot water is added. It truly is a mischief managed mug that would make a perfect gift to anyone who is a Potter fan. I would recommend buying more than one since everyone in your home will want to use it." —james webb

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 10 styles).

    28. A cactus mug with adorable pin dots, to assure your next cup of hot cocoa won't ~succ~.

    Forever 21

    This mug would actually look super cute with a succulent planted in it, don't you think?

    Get it from Forever 21 for $3.

    29. And an adventurous mug with a rock climbing–enthusiast (or anyone who has recently watched Free Solo but is too scared to scale a wall).

    Climbergoods / Etsy

    As we've all learned from the great Miley Cyrus, it's all about the your morning coffee. This creative mug would definitely be Alex Holland–approved.

    Get it from Climbergoods on Etsy for $24.95+ (available in nine styles).
