Extra Accessories for your Promotional Mugs

On every desk or in every sink you will find a promotional mug... that is of course if they're not in the dishwasher. It's for this reason that promotional mugs are a fantastic platform to advertise on. The advertisement on the mug doesn’t need to be complicated, just a simple logo will do... you could even get a bit creative and have an image on there too.

Whatever happened to milk and two sugars?
In the last few years people have become coffee and tea obsessed, with many famous coffee stores opening and introducing all different kinds of flavours. You'd now get a strange look if you asked for just milk and two sugars.

As these stores have increased the number of flavours available there has also been an increase in the number of accessories available for promotional mugs.

Promotional mug accessories
People are now getting a little creative, and as well as advertising on promotional mugs they're also advertising and promoting their business on promotional mug accessories. If you're thinking how can a mug have accessories, just have a read below.

Some mug accessories include:

A mug box
A mug saucer
A mug sweater
A mug hat
A mug spoon
A mug holder
Mug sweaters are usually knitted and can come in an array of colours. These are mainly used to keep the contents of the mug warmer for longer. They also enable you to pick up a hot mug without  burning your fingers... They look pretty cool too.

A mug hat, like mug sweaters can also come many colours and some are actually shaped to look like hats. These go on top of your mugs to lock in the steam to keep your drink warmer for longer. They are also handy if your on the move, as it stops your drink spilling everywhere.

Mug spoons are very handy if you often drink soups during the day, some mugs are specially designed so the spoon fits nicely on the side of the mug. This saves you time looking for a clean spoon, or if all the spoons are in the dishwasher... waiting until it's finished it's cycle to get a spoon out (which is always annoying).

Mug holders are similar to mug sweaters in that they are designer to stop the user from burning their fingers (or hands) when picking up a hot drink. You usually find mug holders around plastic or cardboard material mugs.

Mug boxes are for those mugs that are 'for display only'. You know the ones that are placed in cabinets and only brought out on special occasions... Well mug boxes enable you to store the mugs and stop the mug getting too dusty on the shelf.

A mug saucer is a handy accessory that stops those horrid ring marks on surfaces. They are designed to be placed under the mug and catch any drips that fall out of the mugs contents.

Promotional mugs maybe the option to go for in your promotional campaign, but remember if you really want to stand out try handing out a few mug accessories to go with them.
