What Does Your Coffee Mug Say About You?

Coffee Mug - What Does is Say About You?

Have you every considered what the coffee mug says about you? The mug is no longer just a basic drinking vessel. Mugs are now a way to express ourselves to the world. Your mug choice may give people insight into what motivates you, what brings you joy, what you dream about, and what you find important.

I am often at home drinking my morning cup of tea alone so I am not necessarily broadcasting a message to the world (although I have featured one of my mugs on YouTube). Still, my mug choice helps me set the tone for my day.

Consider the variety of mug choices. Here are a few that come to mind…

  • Personal Photos
  • Funny or inspirational quotes
  • Travel destination reminders
  • Decorative
  • Modern
  • Interesting or wacky shapes

Do you have a favorite mug that you use daily with cozy slippers and the morning paper? Do you change up your mug choice depending on your mood? I’m a mood-changer. As you can see in my photo, my mugs tend to be traditional in shape, but I prefer a variety of designs and photos. I often enjoy to be greeted by the smiling faces of my children with a family mug. I also like to use a mug from a place where I have traveled. It’s fun to conjure images of that place and the happy memories from that trip.

I also have mugs with quotes. A red one with “Follow Your Heart” is one of my favorites. The “peace” mug in the photo above is another go-to mug for me. There is a small dove inside the lip of the mug that reminds me to bring peace into my life with every sip. My morning cup of tea is my “happy place” after I get the kids to school and before I start my day.

Believe it or not, I found an article on this very topic. I’m sure they just want to sell coffee mugs, but I thought they had an interesting take on what coffee/tea mug choices say about you.

Is your mug adorned with a quotation from a wise man or woman that speaks to your beliefs? Does it feature a photo of a hero you admire? You are a thoughtful person who is motivated to do your best each day.

Is your mug a wacky shape? Does it tell a joke or feature a cartoon character? You are an easy-going coffee drinker who doesn’t take life to seriously and enjoys a little humor to start your day.

Do you carry around a travel mug at all times? Does your mug feature a photo of an exotic locale, or is it a souvenir from a past trip? You are jet-setter who is always on the go.

Is your mug high-tech, state-of-the-art, and optimized to keep your drink hot for hours? You are a serious coffee-lover who puts a lot of thought into his or her morning cup of joe. It’s likely a latte or espresso with perfectly frothed milk!

What about the plain-jane mug? Typically white or cream like you’d find at the local diner. I have an upscale version of the classic white mug that I put out when I am hosting guests. I’m sure there are folks who use this classic style. What does it say about them? Are they boring? Shy? or just reserved and traditional? I wonder…

Since I use a variety of mugs, I fall into more than one category. I like variety in my life. How about you? What do you think your coffee mug says about you? Share in a comment. I can’t wait to hear what you have to share.

    What about the really silent mugs without any fancy decorations?What does that say about someone Jenn?Noticed it’s been overlooked in the post and the article you stumbled upon as well.

    1. Jenn

      Good point Larsson. I added a paragraph to discuss the “silent” mugs.

  2. Stevie

    As long as the mug holds coffee I will use it haha. But I normally drink from cute/funny quote mugs 🙂

  3. Patty

    My mug is a gift from my husband. I would not have picked it myself but since he gave it to me, I use it.

    My coffee mug is practical, because I consume coffee for practical reasons, so it must be able to go ‘on the go’ and keep my coffee as fresh as possible for long periods of time. Therefor my ‘mug’ is more of a tumbler 🙂

    Most of mine are plain. They match my dishes. I like matching 🙂

      I am a matcher when guests are over, but on my own, I like variety. 🙂

    Haha- I usually say any mug does good as long as it has coffee! But I love colored mugs!

  7. Teresha F

    My mugs are usually a solid color, I like to think it means I am not flashy instead of boring. I mean I hope no one thinks I’m boring when they see my sipping from my red mug!

  8. fun post! I do change up my mugs based on my mood and that now my daughter can read I have to hide my Sheldon Cooper quotes!

    I haven’t actually bought many mugs for myself – most are gifts, but I would say my favorite is one an Aladdin mug that was made by Disney. It’s the scene out of the movie when she gets on the carpet with him, and they are riding in the sky…it’s just pretty and I’ve been using it for years!

  10. I hardly drop comments, however after reading through
    a great deal of comments here What Does
    Your Coffee Mug Say About You?. I do have some questions for you if it’s okay.

    Is it only me or does it seem like some of these responses appear like they are left by brain dead people?

    😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to keep
    up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list
    of all of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  11. I think the admin of this web site is in fact working hard
    in favor of his web page, as here every material is quality based stuff.
