Also, double-sided printing makes it perfect for both righties and lefties. 

Football Season

(Mug reads “We interrupt this marriage to bring you football season” in tall, thin black text.”)

Any partner of an avid football fan will know that football season trumps all other affairs. If you need a humorous way to air your grievances for being ignored for the last 4 months, this is your in.

For the A-dork-able Associate

i eight sum pi

(Mug shows a series of mathematic representations (square root of -1, 2 cubed, sigma, and pi), which can be read as “I ate sum pi,” followed by text reading “…and it was delicious.”)

Whether its the math whiz or the zany teacher, some people have a knack for making maths fun. This is an excellent gift for those unique individuals, and it’s certain to put a smile on everyone’s faces. The design is printed on both sides of this high quality, microwave and dishwasher safe mug. 

Holy Shift!

Who’s the Ross

(White mug reads “Who’s the Ross” in red text with a black dropshadow. There is also an image of Bob Ross at the bottom, slightly overlapped by the text.)

Here’s a big mug featuring a man with an even bigger heart. Re-watching The Joy of Painting is sure to make you both laugh and cry, so why not have a mug that acknowledges the power Bob Ross has over our hearts.

This 15-ounce mug is microwave safe and officially liscensed. We recommend hand washing this one though, so take a few moments to slow down and smell the roses (and soap). 

Who’s Your Daddy?

On Sale

For the Absurd Appreciator

Rainbows and Unicorns

(This is a pink mug featuring the body of a white unicorn with yellow hair and accents. The head of the unicorn is 3D and is vomiting a rainbow, which forms the handle of the mug.)

Looking for something unique that is sure to get a few double takes? Check out this outrageous 3D, hand-painted unicorn mug. It’s is an large, 13-ounce mug from el & groove. The company recommends hand-washing to help your mug last longer.

Jesus S(h)aves

(This is a cold-to-hot mug. The cold image depicts a traditional, bearded Jesus with scissors and money in his hands. There is also some text that reads “Jesus Saves.” Once you pour in your coffee, the image changes to a cleanly shaven Jesus with a razor in hand. The text then reads “Jesus Shaves.”)

Did you know there isn’t a single mention of Jesus getting a shave in the Bible? While it didn’t work out great for Samson or John the Baptist, the non-traditional look seems to work for Mr. Christ. This 12 ounce mug is perfect for the comical Christian in your life.

The “Jesus Shaves” mug is microwave safe but not dishwasher safe due to its heat changing properties. (The same goes for any heat-changing mug, by the way.) This mug comes from a small Brooklyn-based company called the Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild.

Green (Onion) Goose

(The mug depicts a whimsical photo of a goose with an upsidedown bundle of green onions on its head, resembling a wig. There is a brown background but the interior of the mug is white.)

We all have that one friend who delights in all things offbeat and cooky. This is the perfect mug for them! This mug is slightly on the large side with a 13.5-ounce capacity and is made using high-quality, chip resistance porcelain. Plus, to top it off, it comes with an equally zany gift box. 

Guess What…?

(White mug features red text reading “Guess what?” followed by an arrow that points to a red chicken butt.)

No matter how many times you’ve heard this one since your elementary days, this little rhyme gets laughs every time. The 11 oz mug uses a white gloss and high-quality ceramic, making it microwave and dishwasher safe. 

Goofy Gator

(This mug is “3D” in the shape of a chunky green, spotted alligator. The bottom of the mug is the head of the alligator.)

While undeniably goofy, this little gator is the perfect gift for the child-at-heart. This topsy-turvy alligator mug is made with high-quality glazed ceramic porcelain. Plus, it is double-walled for durability, so it is microwave and dishwasher safe. 

Porcelain Throne

(White porcelain mug in the shape of a toilet. The handle is formed by the toilet plumbing and there is a black rim to indicate a toilet seat without encroaching on the mouth of the cup.)

Here’s a great way to show the potty mouth in your life some appreciation. This 12-ounce ceramic mug holds up to 12 ounces and is both microwave and dishwasher safe. With this gag gift, you’re certain to get a giggle. 

For Someone Special

You’re My National Treasure

(White mug reads “You’re My National Treasure” with an image of Nicolas Cage’s smiling face crowned and surrounded by pink flowers and a bright sun in the background.)

Now that’s hot!

(White mugs reads “I would love to get Jalapeño pants” with a cartoon jalapeño and two hearts. The reverse side can be customized with your partner’s name and another cartoon heart.)

This personalizable mug is the perfect mix of lighthearted jest and suggestive overtones for your holiday. The design is handpainted onto the 12 oz mug. It is top-rack dishwasher safe; however, we recommend gently handwashing this one with warm water and soap to make it last. 

Suggestive Coffee Cravings

(Black mug reads “I’m hot./ I’m wet./ I taste delicious./ -Coffee” in white handwriting-style text.)

High Praise

(White mug has an image of a mint green candy heart with red lettering that reads “You A’ight.”)

Nothing says “romance” than a half-effort compliment and a candy heart. This is the perfect gift for the sarcasm-fueled romances out there. The ceramic mug is available in both 11 and 15-ounce options. It has a glossy finish and the design is printed on both sides of the mug. 

Wrapping Up

There you have it, folks! No matter what you or your giftee’s interests are, you are certain to find a mug that’ll crack out some smiles. Before you make your final decision, here are a few tips on choosing the right mug:

  • If you are buying for a leftie, make sure the design is printed on both sides of the mug.
