10 Mugs That Will Turn Your Kitchen Into an Art Gallery

Have you ever wondered what happens in your brain when you look at art? The process can be pretty powerful. Even a short 3-minute visit to online galleries positively affects a person’s well-being. We decided to make a list of ingeniously designed mugs that will create an atmosphere of art right in your own house and positively impact your mood.

1. This original mug will be a cute gift for any giraffe lover: “I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He loves giraffes, and it is a cute, fun way to have his morning cup of tea. Great that it’s dishwasher-safe, and the colors are lovely. He was very pleased with his gift.”

This handmade item is eco-friendly. It is made out of high-quality ceramic.

Warning: Do not microwave.

Promising review:

The way it has been made makes it feel like a great gift for lovers of giraffes, bought for such a person. — streaky

2. This magical mug could really be enchanted because its sturdiness is legendary: “This is my new favorite mug! It’s so sturdy and a lot thicker than it looks. It has already survived falling off the coffee table and came out with no scratches or chips. It’s super easy to clean & keeps my brews warm for longer than a standard mug. I handwash mine just to make sure the dishwasher doesn’t take away the text, but it handwashes super well and really quickly.” It is worth every penny.

This mug is made out of high-quality stoneware and is dishwasher and microwave-safe. The design speaks for itself and is perfect for both left and right-handed people.

Promising review:

Best gift EVER!! I LOVE this mug! This is THE BEST gift the twins have ever given me! Oh, alright, I’ll admit it. I bought it for myself, but only because they’re 5 and don’t have any money. In either case, this mug was worth EVERY penny and serves as a gentle warning to all not to mess with me before my morning coffee, lest they be cursed. — Angela Murray

3. These kissing mugs give off a very romantic vibe. Their unique design makes them the perfect gift for your loved ones. Elegant matching spoons are included: “I love these quirky mugs. The spoons are very tactile, but it is not practical to leave them in their slots when drinking. Really, really pleased with them.”

These mugs are made out of bone china. Microwave and dishwasher-safe. They come in an elegant box.

Promising review:

Pretty mugs to impress your loved ones! I was looking for something like this to impress my wife! Because of a few reviews which stated color patches were found on the red mug, I was a bit hesitant. Since I couldn’t find any other similar product, I went ahead and ordered it. To be honest, I was very satisfied with the first look of the mug set. It’s pretty & more importantly, my wife loves it! — Venkat Selvaraj

4. This ceramic mug looks like one Homer Simpson would approve of. Mmm, donuts! “Better than the picture. An absolutely amazing product and great value. Doesn’t look cheap and tacky.” Definitely worth buying.

This cup is comfortable to use — the handle stays cool while your drink is hot. It is also quite durable and resistant to chipping. And its unique design speaks for itself.

Promising review:

I bought this product for my dad’s birthday, and he loved it! It was well-made, had a great design, and was very large, so it fits more tea than the usual mug. I can recommend this product, either for yourself or as a gift to someone else. — Megan Frost

5. If you’re having a lazy day, or even a lazy week, this mug is for you. Or, even if you’re just a fan of sloths: “Bought this as a birthday present for someone with a sloth fixation. They were very pleased. It looks great and is well-packed. If you have somebody with the same weird preference, then I’d recommend it!”

This mug is too delicate for the dishwasher and microwave. Hand washes only. Its unusual shape also makes it hard to spill.

Promising review:

Great gift. My daughter bought this for her daddy for his birthday. She calls him a sloth, so this mug was very appropriate. It’s a good size without being oversized like many character mugs are. It’s well-made, well painted, and washes well. Her daddy loves it, and it made a great gift. — Mrs. B Davies

6. “A mug with bite appeal.” This toothy cup will make you smile every time you drink out of it because of its unique design.

Nice and sturdy ceramic cup.

Warning: Not microwave safe. Not dishwasher safe.

Promising review:

This is a brilliant mug. It was a gift for my teenage daughter & she is absolutely delighted with it. It was delivered on time & really well packaged. It’s a vibrant, fun design that won’t disappoint. I would highly recommend this product. — M. McPolin

7. This mug is a great present and can be used as you like: “I bought this for a friend who is a big fan of Pokémon. The item is well-made and looks great. It is probably not practical as a mug to drink from, it has a better use as an ornament or a pot to store pens in!”

This ceramic mug is of great quality and comes in an original design.

Promising review:

Gorgeous Pikachu cup. This cup is perfect for any Pokémon or Pikachu fan! I ordered 2 of these. The cup itself is beautiful & made with loving care, but one of mine has a hairline crack in it, so it cannot be used as the liquid gets inside the clay of the cup. However, I sent a message to Amazon customer service & they sent another one out without any fuss! One very happy customer. — MaryTDMoo

8. This mug is a great novelty gift. The size is rather small, so it could be used as an espresso cup, or it could be a cute gift for a child.

This item is officially licensed. Some details are hand-painted. Not dishwasher or microwave safe. Could fit nicely in any space.

Promising review:

This is a very well-made cup, as it’s Baby Groot. It’s surely the perfect size. Any larger and it would be Groot. This is a gift for a mug collection, and I couldn’t be happier. These are novelty mugs and should be seen as such. If you are that bothered about drinking, get a regular mug. — Amazon Customer

9. This mug can blow you away! The quality is really good: “Perfect. A good-sized mug; keeps its warmth well. And most of all, it looks fantastic. Perfect for a rainy day watching Rick and Morty.”

Fully licensed 3D mug. The capacity is 500 ml. Hand washes only.

Promising review:

Spiked. The mug is funny but difficult to drink out of because of its spikes. — Stephen R Collins

10. A mug out of a fairy tale. This is a great novelty gift that is surprisingly practical: “Cute, functional cup! Great little cup. Would make a great gift for any Disney fan — young or old.”

A Disney-themed teacup from Beauty and the Beast. It is officially licensed and will be a great addition to any fan’s collection.

Promising review:

Really good product! I just loved it. I ordered Chip as a gift for a friend, and she just fell in love with it! It’s perfectly described and looks totally like the picture. It’s bigger than a small coffee cup and perfect in every room of the house. — Merz
