Ah, Valentine’s Day. I love the month of February because, even though the weather is less-than-stellar throughout most of America, there seems to be a small glimmer of spring ready to pop through. Maybe it’s the bright reds and pinks that riddle the stores
way too damn early every year. Or maybe it’s that I’m a RomCom loving sap that is in love with love. Whatever it is, Valentine’s Day is a fave of mine. But, I really do feel like the Valentine’s Day gifts available in the big box store are tired AF. I mean, getting a variety pack of chocolates purchased either at Target, or my local 7-11 doesn’t really get me hot and bothered, if you know what I mean? Buckle down and keep reading for my favorite 4 Valentine’s Day mugs for everyone from Mugsby.
Instead of 12 overpriced roses that will literally die faster than my (supposed) no-chip nail polish, why not invest in a gift that involves some sentiment, and even a smidge of humor. Because nothing says “I love you” to your significant other quite like your loving humor, am I right? So here’s Mugsby’s top 4 Valentines Day mugs, for everyone on your list. (Even your semi-creepy bestie from college that swears that her cat is all she needs in her life.)
1. Rated G husband
If you’re married this Valentine’s Day, this one is the perfect gift for your favorite husband. It’s G-Rated, so he won’t feel weird taking it in to work with him, and you may even earn some cool points from his colleagues because you’ve got the jokes. Fill it up with his favorite candy, and maybe a date night gift card for a night on the town.
2. Rated PG-13 husband
Okay, so he may not be totally cool with sipping his morning joe in the break room with this bad boy, but I still love the sentiment, and like to think of this mug as the weekend mug. Spice up the gift by filling it with some risque bedroom-only items, and a homemade coupon for a lingerie-only massage.
3. Your newest fling
So maybe you aren’t totally ready to drop the L-word bomb, but this funny mug will still acknowledge your affection on Valentine’s Day, without being overly sappy. I love the idea of greeting them in the morning with a fancy, homemade latte (we won’t tell if you cheat and swing by Starbucks and dump it into this mug, if you don’t) with some whipped topping on it. It’s effortless, but still has a fun meaning. I mean, aren’t you seriously glad they didn’t get the left-swipe?
4. Your single friend
We all have one of these people in our lives. If she’s single AF and rocking it, show her she’s loved and gift her this. Stuff it with a girl’s night out coupon, or even some tiny liquor bottles, if she’s a good sport. Or hell, if you’re single, buy one for yourself! Who runs this world?!
