Custom Mugs For The Coffee (Or Tea) Drinker Who Has Everything

Finding holiday gifts for everyone on your list isn’t the easiest thing you’ll do this month (actually, the easiest thing to do this month is eat your weight in sugar cookies). Most of us buy the things we need as we need them, which leaves present purchasers without any solid leads. Sometimes, the easiest way to come up with a gift idea is to think about what the recipient uses on a regular basis and then get them a special version of that. For example, this pair of custom-made silhouette mugs would be an exceptionally thoughtful gift for a coffee drinker. A set of two costs $65, and the silhouettes are created from photos you provide, so they could be of a couple, children, pets, or anyone else who looks good in profile. [Etsy]
