Book Mugs Make Great Non-Book Gifts!

Peanut butter and jelly.  Grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Snowy days and hot chocolate.  Some things that just go well together, like reading a great book and pairing it with a steaming mug of coffee/tea/hot cocoa/any other warm beverage you desire!  There is no better feeling than curling up on some fluffy pillows in a cozy blanket fort with your latest read in one hand and your mug in the other.  And yet, there is one way to improve this fantasy.  Instead of grabbing just any old mug out of your cabinet, grab yourself a book mug to complete the picture.  Here is a collection of some of our favorites to keep you warm during your reading hour (or hours).

Books Are Magic

Any true book lover will be able to relate to this mug’s message.  Whether the book actually includes magical/fantasy elements (Cassandra Clare fans, we know you’re out there) or if it simply holds the power to transport you to another world, we know that books certainly are true sources of magic.  And with a gorgeous flower crown that surrounds the text, why would you not want to snuggle up with this mug?

Just One More Chapter

How many of you have told yourselves (or your parents) that yes, you WILL turn off the lights and finally go to sleep after you finish your chapter.  But then when you actually turn to that last page of the chapter, the next chapter calls to you, whispering, “Just one.  More.  Chapter.”  If you are anything like me, this means that you cave each and every time.  You know it, I know it, this mug knows it.

Miles and Piles of Books!

This beautiful mug really speaks for itself.  And just think of how long a pot of tea and a pile of books could keep you occupied!  Although when you think about it, for literature lovers like us, it might not actually be that long…

My Book Boyfriend is the Best

We all know there are those characters that you read about, and while you know they are fictional, you can’t help falling in love with them (**cough-cough** Peter Kavinsky).  And since you know you only have a limited amount of time (and pages) to spend with them, you definitely don’t want to be interrupted.  This mug informs anyone approaching that, no, you don’t want to be disturbed, and yes, whatever they have to say can wait until later.  After all, you are on a date.

Books on the Go-Go

To only include ceramic mugs in this list would be to (wrongfully) assume that us book lovers only read at home.  But of course that couldn’t be further from the truth!  The best thing about books is the mobile worlds they provide.  So if you can bring your book on the road with you, why shouldn’t you bring your java with you too?  With this mug, you can read and sip on-the-go!  Plus it features a bookworm giraffe, and what could be cuter than that?
