If you’re like me, it’s hard to resist a cool coffee cup when you find one while traveling. On a trip to Vegas, I had breakfast at a diner called Blueberry Hill and their retro mugs just spoke to me. Next thing you know, I was buying one to take home and add to my own mug collection.   

I especially love it when I’m visiting someone’s home and when it comes time for coffee, it’s delivered in a mug adorned with a hilarious saying or design. The same thing for co-workers. Some of the cleverest coffee mugs I’ve seen have been in meetings where coffee mugs are plentiful.
