Whether it’s for a special occasion or just to make someone smile, whoever you’re buying for – there are novelty mugs for that.
What are novelty mugs?
To put it simply, a novelty mug is your average Joe ceramic cylinder, with the hilarious rating turned up to 11. Whether you use your mug for tea, coffee or wine (we won’t tell if you don’t), it’s never just a mug. It’s a reminder of something or someone special.
Novelty birthday mugs
Time flies, and sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect gift when it feels like the person you’re buying for just celebrated their birthday. Novelty mugs show you’ve taken the time to find something that they find funny or individual, and matches their personality. If someone you know is feeling a little sensitive about getting older, what better way to show your support than get them a mug so that they can be reminded of it every day – and laugh about it!
Offensive or rude novelty mugs
We’re probably playing it a little fast and loose with the word offensive, but you know what we mean. As offensive as a goat can be. A novelty mug from our cheeky and rude mug collection is perfect for people with whom you have that special relationship. Probably not a good idea for the mother in law, but everyone else is fair game.
Novelty mugs or funny mugs are a great way to get someone a thoughtful gift, whilst throwing in some humour on the side. It’s the perfect way to show you care, without all the mushy stuff.
