A “Wish You Were Here!” Mug

What's better than a postcard? A postcard that can hold coffee! This pretty mug comes complete with an old-fashioned postmark, a place to write a personalized greeting, and a special pen with ink that becomes permanent after a quick trip to the oven.

Crave: Corn Plastic Mug

Besides reading, voting, and George Clooney (duh), nothing is sexier than recycling. So, if yellow mugs that have "reading is sexy" printed on them ($12) ever go out of style, at least they won't take up space in a landfill for years and years -- they're made from 100 percent biodegradable corn plastic.
