So many memories are associated with my Christmas coffee mugs and coffee, starting with a remembrance of the giver, then wandering down the memory lane of the many Christmas mornings these coffee mugs have shared with me.
As I admire my decorations for Christmas, select and buy gifts online from my favorite Holiday Gift Guide, and reminisce about Christmases past, I hold my Christmas coffee mug close. I warm my hands and savor the smell of the holiday coffee blend brew that I have selected for this morning. Sentimentality dominates these moments and I am grateful for the wonderful memories being recreated in my mind.
My Christmas Coffee Mugs and Coffee
The Nikko Christmastime coffee cups are my Christmas coffee mugs. They were gifted to me decades ago by my parents. Each year, I take them down out of the cabinet, give them a quick wash by hand, and set them out for using throughout the holiday season.
I love the octagonal design of these coffee mugs, which is quite unique. The image on the mugs is equally important to me. I just adore that little teddy bear! He was actually the reason I selected Nikko Christmastime china as our family dinnerware so many years ago. To this day, it is still my favorite in the Christmas china patterns.
These mugs can be washed in the dishwasher and they are microwave safe. I usually hand wash mine simply because I don’t want to have to wait to run the dishwasher before I can set them out again. They are, after all, part of my Christmas kitchen decor as well as my morning coffee cup.
Grinch Christmas Mug
We have only one Christmas Grinch in our home and he is actually pictured on a Christmas mug. My husband is a huge Grinch fan, but I have to tell you honestly, he is the furthest thing from a Christmas Grinch as possible. He just loves Dr. Seuss and the movie.
Every year, year after year, we sit down to watch “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” and my husband grabs his Grinch coffee mug along with whatever pie or cookies I have prepared. This is such a fun holiday tradition!
This mug is a really cute and the perfect gift idea if you have a Grinch lover on your Christmas list. It is dishwasher and microwave safe, but I have to warn you in advance. These mugs do tend to cause the recipient to break out in song. One look at the Grinch’s face and the lyrics to “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” echo throughout the house.
Christmas Snowman Coffee Mug
I am surrounded by snowman fans, therefore we must have snowman mugs. This coffee mug is simply adorable. His festive Christmas attire, as well as his cheery smile, pink cheeks and fun filled eyes just beckon you to sip from him.
The shovel shaped spoon is a really awesome extra that is included with this Snowman coffee mug and is perfect for adding a spoonful of sugar to our coffee. The shovel spoon actually rests in the handle when not in use. A very cute design!
Because these coffee mugs are also perfect for hot chocolate, as shown in the photo, they would also make a great gift idea for children or perhaps a set for a family gift.
Starbucks Holiday Blend Coffee
I have been drinking this years annual Starbucks Holiday Blend Coffee for a few weeks now and it is delicious. It is a bit stronger than my normal morning cup of coffee, but that is certainly no problem. I need that morning jolt on these cold winter mornings to get me going.
This is Starbucks annual holiday blend and, as usual, this medium roast coffee is a limited edition. After Christmas, when it is all sold out, it will no longer be available. Truthfully, I liked it so much when I first tasted it that I have already purchased several bags and k-cup packages of the Starbucks Holiday Blend to give as Christmas gifts. I was just thinking last night how I better get them wrapped before I change my mind and keep them all for myself.
