Funny Coffee Mugs

Updated on September 10, 2014

Coffee Mugs to Start Your Day Off With a Laugh

One of my obsessions is collecting coffee mugs that make me laugh. I always make sure that I laugh within half an hour of waking up. These mugs are some of my favorite mugs that I've come across and bought...or intend to buy in the near future. If you're looking for a lighthearted gift for a coffee loving loved one or co-worker, you'll probably find something here. Of course when you talk about what's funny and what isn't the opinion always varies. I have encountered incredibly crude coffee mugs that just aren't my personal style (they would also probably be banned by Squidoo!). I selected mugs for this lens that are more likely to give you a good laugh in the morning. I consider it the goal of these coffee mugs to brighten a person's day. You can't put a price tag on that.

How to Choose Which Coffee Mug They'll Enjoy Most:

For Co-Workers:

Co-workers usually enjoy coffee mugs that will make them laugh, as long as it doesn't come at their expense. Finding a coffee mug that reminds them of their passions, like golfing will increase the chances that they'll truly appreciate the gift.

For Your Spouse:

The gift-giving stakes are raised when it comes to your significant other because they expect you to know more about them than a co-worker would (which you probably do). The best bet is to go for a funny mug that you are certain both of you would find funny. If your husband absolutely loves watching shark week, then the shark mug below is a great gift for him.

Ultimately though it depends on the person's individual personality. They may have a weird sense of humor, which makes giving funny gifts difficult. Sometimes you just have to take a risk and hope they like it! People tend to worry more than they need to when deciding on the perfect gift for people. Take a deep breath, relax, and have some fun!

Brass Knuckles Coffee Mug

This mug will help everyone around you understand that you mean business. The handle is crafted to look like brass knuckles. It makes you feel like you're getting ready for a fight. This is actually a great gift for someone in a high pressure job environment like sales or stock trading. You get a little boost of testosterone every time you take a sip.

The mug is made of ivory ceramic construction and, because of the metallic handle, is not microwave safe.

File This Under: Neat Idea

If you're tired of always explaining how you like your coffee, you can use this mug to let them know every time. Simply slide the metallic rings around until you have the right combination for yourself. This is useful if you have assistants or polite co-workers that offer to get you coffee. Now you can simply point to the mug when they ask how you like your coffee.

Insane Mug by GeekyHeroes

This is a mug I actually created in my Zazzle Store. My girlfriend is a little insane, and she's proud of that (I am too!). I got her this for her birthday.

      Very cool lens. As I mentioned above, I love the grenade mug. Working for the public definitely makes us feel that way sometimes ; ) Will come back often.

      @Lenskeeper: That one might be my favorite too (besides the "insane" mug, which I made, so it doesn't count)!
