This time of year I have to actively remind myself I have plenty of mugs in the cupboard already. I just want to cup my hands around something warm, and every halfway-inviting mug just calls out my name. This one is my latest favorite: A sleek, cozy shape with a clever lid to keep your coffee hot.
I love that lovely little bamboo coaster and lid; I am always casting about for the right size of tea plate to clap on top of my mug between sips. (I really like to keep my beverages hot!) This little lid keeps the cup and its contents warmer, and serves as a coaster too.
