10 Coffee Mugs to Get You Through Your Monday Meeting
Mondays, amiright? Garfield knew what he was talking about. Adding insult to injury, the boss always thinks Monday is the perfect day for a painfully long meeting to kick off the week and add to already lengthy to-do lists. The only thing that gets me through those meetings (and most mornings, really) is a piping hot cup of coffee in a mug that makes me crack my first smile of the day.
Here are ten coffee mugs that will have you feeling caffeinated and clever from 8 a.m. on:
1. Build-On Brick Coffee Mug (Think Geek, $20)
Perfect for a little distraction when Steve from accounts starts droning on about numbers.
2. Octopus Creature Cup (Amazon, $15)
This one’s actually better to pass off to a coworker. Its innocuous exterior belies the hidden sea creature lurking under the coffee, which is really going to shock your neighbor once he takes a sip and sees a tentacle.
3. Fisticup (Amazon, $13)
Nothing says “don’t mess with me” like brass knuckles.
4. My Cuppa Coffee Mug (Amazon, $13)
Perfect for Pantone fanatics and those who have the luxury of other people prepping out their morning java.
5. The Pessimist Coffee Mug (Despair, $7)
Even the most optimistic people can agree that Monday sucks.
6. 2 Carat Cup (Amazon, $10)
Remember when “if you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?” was a playground taunt? Well, I’m happy to put a ring on it for my caffeine fix.
7. Off On Coffee Mug (Amazon, $15)
It’s clear, you’re not ON until you’ve had your morning cup of coffee.
8. Morning Mug (Amazon, $16)
As if the difference my morning buzz makes isn’t readily apparent on our face, this mug also shows the dramatic improvement coffee makes in my mood.
9. Don’t F***ing Procrastinate Mug (Good F***ing Design Advice, $16)
The profanity is abrasive, but the message is true.
10. Dunk Mug (Dwell, $14)
If all else fails, have some cookies with your morning coffee. Cookies make everything better.
