There’s something about receiving a practical gift that you can hold in your hands. While framed photos are always worth considering, I have a special affinity for the photo coffee mugs that my kids have given me. For some reason I associate a hot drink with good times of productivity or relaxation (depending on the time of day) and good times.

I drink tea on and off all day, then I have a cup of tea at night while watching the news. Not to mention that we drink gallons of hot chocolate during Winter months, especially after sledding in the snow. Consider that a greeting card from your local drugstore can set you back about $4 or more, so for about $12, these professional quality mugs are worth considering. The design tool for Shutterfly is extremely simple and user-friendly, so you don’t need to be computer savvy to achieve professional results.

(You can even add chocolates if you are sending it as a gift.) My cabinet is starting to fill up with special mugs from over the years, and I can see how the printing quality has evolved recently. (the old ones from other photo services have faded already)

My favorite feature is the colored inside of the coffee cup, as I never was a huge fan of how stark white most ceramic mugs were until recently. I’ve only had my coffee mug for about two months, but it’s as sharp as the day I got it. You can also see if there are any good coupons for coffee mugs from Vistaprint here.
