What better thing to do on a cold and blustery day than come in, throw your shoes off, get the kettle on and curl up for a few blissful moments with a nice big mug of frothy coffee or steaming hot chocolate. For many of us, our daily ritual of a warming cuppa is a stolen moment of peaceful contemplation and a momentary escape from our busy schedules, so it’s unsurprising that what we choose to drink our cuppa from is almost as important a part of the ritual as what we choose to drink.
At this time of year, there are some gorgeous winter collections around that feature beautifully designed coffee cups and mugs, so it’s a really good excuse to treat yourself to a new festive favourite. Don’t settle for last year’s chipped Santa novelty mug without feasting your eyes on this pretty lot first – let’s do this curled-up-with-a-coffee moment in style with my pick of beautiful mugs that take a definite nod to the winter season but without all of the tinselly tackiness… put that Santa-shaped cup away now…
So, which one takes your fancy for your next cosy cuppa?
