Travel Mugs – A Great Gift For The Guy On The Go

By Sadie Brown

Travel mugs are a popular sight during morning rush hours all around the world. They are convenient and keep beverages hot or cold.

They are insulated mugs that are usually heavy duty plastic with a thermal liner or metal with a thermal liner. It makes taking a cup of coffee or any hot beverage on the road a breeze. Much attention is paid to the thermal properties of the travel mug. They usually will hold anywhere from twelve to sixteen ounces. It has a long handle affixed to the side although there are travel mugs that have no handle at all.

They do not vary in engineered style much. Either they have an outer shell that is plastic or an outer shell that is metal. The interior is always some type of thermal material. Some have screen prints and have designs or logos. They can come in a variety of colors and finishes. Some bear advertisements; these travel mugs are often given away. Older ones from the nineteen sixties were lined with glass as the thermal lining, these glass lined mugs typically held the hot liquid in one section that was tightly capped and the liquid was poured into a separate cup to drink out of. The glass in these styled travel mugs often shattered if it was dropped.

They are very inexpensive and usually only cost a couple of dollars. There are certain well known brands that have been making travel mugs and other travel containers that may be a bit more expensive but usually even the best known manufactured mugs are very reasonably priced. The cost can sometimes be free, when they are part of a giveaway.

Travel mugs are quite economical; they are really good for the environment because they can be reused.

They are an excellent way to save money, by bringing coffee or tea from home instead of buying it from a vendor. They are a great gift idea for the folks on the go who can’t live without their coffee.

Travel mugs are an integral part of any busy schedule, and there are more insulated mug varieties out there than you may expect.
