There is something special about a mug. Something nostalgic, warming and heartfelt about giving a mug as a gift. In fact, mugs hold such a special place in our hearts, that I would bet you have a special mug, one that you reach for every morning or every time you want a pick me up. If you are anything like me, your special mug might even be one that has been handmade by someone else or a mug you made on your own. I don’t know about you but I love the look of handmade DIY mugs and in honor of our sponsor, Albertson’s, and their awesome contest, I thought it would be fun to showcase some of the coolest mugs on the internet.
