The multitasking mug for moms

Coffee to wake up with in the morning. Wine to relax with at night once you’ve sung your last lullaby. Luckily, this mug is perfect for the yin and yang of beverages.

Of course, this adorable mug from ChantillyStay on Etsy wouldn’t work for me, because my voracious reader would let the secret out. Still, one opaque mug that handles my morning coffee IV and my evening wine session is a pretty good deal. 

Each 14-oz ceramic mug is hand-stamped with shhh…there’s wine in here, or another quote of your choice, including the substitution of your favorite spirit in place of wine. Do you think they can fit “spicy mango bacon margarita” on there? Asking for a friend.

One teeny drag: the mugs are hand-wash only. Le sigh. Also, the artist admits that she cost-shops for mugs, which means the shape might be a little different from mug to mug. But if you order a grouping, they’ll all have the same shape (Book Club gifting, for the win!). The shop only has one instance of feedback at the moment, although it’s 100% positive. Still, we thought you ought to know. At the very least, you know what to do the next time your kids clamor to go to the paint-your-own pottery place. –Delilah

    Thank you for such a lovely write up! I too would prefer they be dishwasher safe, but until I am 100% sure they stand up to multiple runs in the dishwasher I don’t want to disappoint! :) Have a lovely day and enjoy your… “coffee!”

    PS. “spicy mango bacon margarita” could totally fit!

    I think this mug is great, but if you are going to advertise a product, then you should be sure that it is available. The seller is “on vacation” and therefore it is impossible to purchase. Cool Mom should choose products that are currently available for purchase.

    Thanks for your comment on multiple posts Cameron. When we originally posted it, it was obviously available. The thing about supporting small companies: sometimes individuals go on vacations. I’m sure you can purchase it at a later time.
