If you are looking to pick up a really nice travel mug for yourself or someone else then make sure to spend an extra couple bucks to get one that will perform better over the years.
Look into anybody’s cabinet and you’re sure to find at least one or two cheap travel mugs that don’t ever get used. Many low cost mugs leak or don’t retain heat very well. Some of them even make your coffee taste a bit like plastic. And in some cases the seams between insulated walls has separated making the mugs perform poorly.
Everyone appreciates a well made thermal mug. If you’re going to buy one for anyone, a few extra dollars spent goes a long way towards getting a much better product.
Unlike really small travel mugs 12-oz mugs are easier to come by and they come in many different styles. On this page I’ve attempted to feature primarily travel mug style tumblers. You can of course see this page for more insulated coffee cup style mugs or this page for a more options in the small travel mug category.
Not married to the 12-oz mug? See this page for a list of the best travel mugs sold today.
