Chilly temperatures mean mug time. The perfect mug makes sipping hot drinks a daily ritual, and elevates the ordinary to a pleasurable distraction or even a family tradition. I stoically defended my favorite red cup all growing up; it was my cup and I truly believed everything tasted better in it, and no one — I mean no one — was to use it but me! I’ve since replaced that red cup with a personalized mug, and it makes my nighttime ritual of sipping chamomile tea from it the loveliest segue to serenity.

Do you have a favorite mug? Any morning or evening hot drink rituals? If you haven’t found your own mug just yet, this personalized postcard one or this simple white one may be just the thing.
