I’m known as a bit of a Pug Enthusiast, and recently for my birthday I got a pug mug present, which I absolutely LOVED! Not only was it fun to look at, it was a perfect companion to my morning coffee!
I loved it so much that I searched for more pug mugs to liven up my coffee time. Here are five of my favorite pug mugs that would make any pug devotee, whether it’s your partner, BFF, parent, or grandparent, really happy and cheerful.
They’ll love your gift like they love their pugs! The following are the best pug mugs on my checklist.

How to Find the Perfect Pug Mug/ Cup
In your hunt for the ‘perfect’ pug mug, you need to find one most suited to your needs! Everyone has different requirements for their convenience, and the ‘perfect’ mug is one that best balances them all. Here are some things to look at while searching for the best pug mug:
- Size is important!
The best pug mug would hold the exact volume of the beverage that you prefer. For people who drink more coffee, a larger cup would be a better choice. However, larger cups would cool down hot beverages faster, so suffice to say, size is crucial!
Here are some size guides for different beverage types:
o Cappuccino: 5-6 oz. cup
o Espresso: 2-3 oz. cup
o Mocha, Latte, and Hot Chocolate: 8-12 oz. cup
- Hold your Handle!
Mugs usually have handles for easier use. They help balance the beverage; avoiding spilling, while also defending the hand from heat.
Sometimes cups, like those for Japanese tea, don’t have handles so that users can embrace the sensations of having a hot drink!
- To Lid or Not to Lid
Lids are useful for maintaining the temperature of your drink, while also preventing spillages while you’re on the go. They also are excellent tools to protect the aroma of your beverage!
Lids are not for everyone, though; some people find them to be hard to manage.
- Material Matters!
Pug mugs are available in a variety of materials, ranging from porcelain, ceramic, and glass, to plastic and stainless steel. Die-hard coffee drinkers tend to prefer ceramic or glass cups as plastic or stainless steel containers tend to retain odors, and even taste!
Ceramic and glass mugs resist residual odor and can maintain warmer beverage temperatures for a longer while.
Finding the ‘perfect’ pug mug can be exciting and can increase the pleasure taken in the little things in life, such as drinking the perfect cup of tea/coffee.
