No matter what the relationship, there is a gift mug designed for it. But exquisite care has to be taken to choose the right kind of mug. The feel, the texture, the size and shape are just the preliminary parameters to be considered. As it turns out, choosing is mug is a lot harder than we thought it would be.
Here are a few things that should be taken into account while gifting a mug:
Do you want a quote or a picture?
If you want to gift the mug to someone you are very close to, putting a picture of them on the mug is a great idea. Undoubtedly, this personalized mug will make anyone’s day. Several gifting galleries offer this option.
On the other hand, if you planning to gift the mug on a formal or semi-formal occasion or to someone who is not that close to you, you can go in for a mug with a quote on it. Today, there is a quote for every occasion.
Consider the size of the mug
This is a factor that many tend to overlook while choosing a mug to gift. The size of the mug must be chosen based on the occasion as well as the purpose of it. The oversized coffee mug is an ideal choice for people whose morning is incomplete without a coffee. A medium sized mug is an all in one mug. It can be gifted on any occasion to anyone. A petite mug can be used unconventionally – as a show piece as well.
Customize the mug
You can choose between mugs made of glass or mugs made of ceramic. Currently, there is no shortage of quirky design styles of mugs available in the market.
Though getting a mug with a quote or a picture is a great idea, customizing it is even better. You can talk to the gifting gallery and even get personalized message printed on the mug. You can even get a set of mugs with the a message printed on each, specialized designed for a particular occasion. This works particularly well with bachelor parties, anniversaries and marriage celebrations.
Gift wrapping a mug can be quite a task if not done properly. Care should be taken that the mug is placed in a cardboard that is neither to big nor to small for it. The cardboard box must not have any indentations of any sort. In addition to this, it is best that you do not use the cardboard box of any other object/appliance. This gives off a vibe of insincere effort. So make sure you use the right box to hold your mug in.
Another idea that can be useful while gifting a mug is placing smaller gift items inside the mug itself and then gift wrapping it. An example of this can be placing a small pouch of freshly grounded coffee or exquisite tea leaves. This can be a nice little surprise when coupled with the perfect mug and the perfect message/image on the mug.
