Most of us — save for the super-hardcore — have officially bid farewell to iced coffee season. So if your first instinct is to complain when the temperature outside starts to drop, may we suggest treating yourself to a new insulated mug to help you cope with the chilly months ahead?
We've rounded up a few stylish and functional insulated travel mugs, all of which are currently on sale. Bonus: Our top pick is almost half off (something that doesn't happen very often!). We wish there was something we could do about your frozen toes, but with one of these mugs, at least you know your morning beverage will be warm!
Zojirushi Stainless Mug, $24 (was $45)
This Zojirushi Stainless Mug is already an editor favorite, and today it's a whopping 46 percent off. If the price tag still makes you balk, consider the technology that's gone into this product, such as vacuum insulation to guarantee beverages stay hot for hours. You'll love the safety lock on its lid, which also features an air vent for glug-free (i.e., drip-proof) sipping. The tall and narrow design is sleek but still fits a generous 16 ounces of your favorite drink. If you don't need quite as much capacity, the 12-ounce size in Rose Gold is on sale for under $20.
Ello Jane Ceramic Travel Mug with Spill-Resistant Slider Lid, $13 (was $15)
Do you have a furry friend to walk in the morning, or maybe just a short commute to the office? This travel mug will keep your coffee or tea warm after you step out the door, and its handle makes it especially easy to grip if you're wearing gloves or mittens. The ceramic mug can be used with or without the spill-resistant top — say, if you're just sitting at a desk during the day. A color-coordinated silicone bottom protects surfaces from scratches, and the whole setup is dishwasher-safe.
Stainless Steel Travel Canister, $9 (was $19) at Urban Outfitters
If you're not looking for any bells or whistles, you can't go wrong with this stainless steel travel canister from Urban Outfitters. For less than $10, choose between the modern marble or metallic blue finish. Consider it a way to make a statement while you sip on your hot coffee or tea. You may even get a few compliments on its streamlined design. If you don't mind spending a little more for a cute pattern, this Peach Thermos Canister is also on sale at UO for $14 (normally $19).
