"I saw my cousin Marie in January. We live on opposite coasts. I took one photo of her and long time boyfirend. Shortly after, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And died. Fred said -she was his love. his life and best friend. I sent him a mug."
"i love the mug i designed. quality photo images and a solid white mug underneath."
"This was a gift for my mom"
"I love to give the photo mugs as gifts to help others remember fun times"
"I have lots of these mugs and love them!"
Travel mugs make a great gift for teachers, grandparents, friends, significant others and anyone who enjoys drinking hot beverages on the go. At Shutterfly, you can personalize these mugs and other personalized gifts with pictures, cute sayings and so much more. To make the mug an even more unique gift, you could consider turning it into a gift basket of sorts.
Gift baskets do not have to be large and imposing. Instead, you can use the travel mug as a place to store other savory treats. Do you know the recipient’s favorite hot beverage? Whether it is green tea, peppermint tea, dark roasted coffee or gourmet hot chocolate, you can stuff the 11oz mug full of the appropriate leaves, beans or mix. If you do not know his or her preferred beverage, you could give the gift of choice by including a gift card to a local coffee shop instead.
Maybe you would rather turn your photo masterpiece into a vase for a candy bouquet? That is an option too. You can choose to use candy already on a stick, such as suckers, or put candy bars on a stick. Then use a small bit of foam to give your edible arrangement some stability. You can even make this a little more homemade by using treats you made yourself.
Perhaps food and drink is not the way to go for your recipient. Instead, you could give them more necessary essentials for cold weather. Put gloves and a hat in the mug and use a scarf as a bow. This is a great way to give a photo gift along with some cold-weather staples.
If you want to give an item that is too big to fit into the mug, you can create an actual gift basket that includes the mug instead. A gift of travel mugs, a new coffee maker, and high-quality coffee could be the perfect present for a pair of new parents, a college grad or a coffee aficionado.
