a coffee mug for the modernist.

Monday, December 5, 2011



so, i don't do gift guides. everybody and their mom does gift guides and there's nothing i could show you that you haven't already seen before. rather, if i did, you'd be all "that's the perfect gift!" in the comments and then never think twice about it again. my gift giving abilities suck.

i tell no lie.

instead, throughout december i plan to post some things that i think are the shit and maybe you will too. if not, please still leave a comment saying that it's the coolest thing you've ever seen. you are also welcome to cuss in the comments if you like.

nice to see you again sarcastic writing. i've missed you.

found over at swiss miss. find it here.

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen. Okay, maybe I've seen a few things slightly cooler, but in general I'm with you on gift guides. I just bake for people. The end. I like that it's a bit more personal. Not to mention it would take me as long to decide between the blue mug and the yellow one as it would to whip up a batch of cookies.

I do like the mug. Especially the black one. My issue with gift guides is that I end up buying everything on them for myself. I still need to get something for my husband. Maybe this mug ;)

haha, I love your sarcasm....also, these mugs are legit.

Michelle said...

Those are fantastic. I hate blogger's gift guides - everything is a wish list that no one can afford. These are legit. Shit. I can cuss and rhyme.

SO I actually do like these. Big, pretty mugs are my favorite. I drink lots of coffee (in the morning) and tea (in the evening) and having it out of a pretty mug makes it that much more amazing! I probably won't seek these out because, well, I'm lazy, but if I ever saw them in a store I would think: Rebecca totally showed me these first and I'm GOING TO BUY ONE DAMNIT! (probably the red).

Oh, trust me, I'm hoping to nap too. A good book may be the only thing that keeps me awake.

Those mugs are pretty awesome though. I don't do gift guides either, but I totally understand your point.

well, I'm not so sure your shit-spotting abilities are honed enough. I will have to see what other crap you find to share here. :)

as for gift guides, this is the first year I decided to do some...it's fun looking around to see what I can find that someone else hasn't...and it's forcing me to be a better git-giver since usually I'm a bit uninspired and boring in that dept.

rebecca said...

well said chessa, well said.

allesistgut said...

Have a nice day.

John said...
