Our Favourite Christmas Mugs for Teens – 2020 Edit

It’s a well known fact that the topselling gifts on Amazon are consistently mugs – and it’s the same for Christmas mugs, and twicely so for Christmas Mugs for Teens.
We all have our favourites; and frankly you need a different one for every drink. The perfect tea mug is NOT a perfect coffee mug, and hot chocolate presents it’s own set of mug requirements.
We also have favourite mugs for different times of the day – my breakfast coffee mug (bucket) is not my after lunch one, and my evening in front of the TV mug is very different to the extra big mug for curling up in front of the fire with my book.
And why should times of the year be any different? Of course you all need a new Christmas mug too – it’s in the rules. And your teen’s Christmas mug needs are just as needy as yours. So here’s our annual round up of Christmas mugs we found this year that we just had to share …. pass the biscuits please.

    • It was from Debenhams, Sarah, but I’m afraid it’s no longer stocked. This post is over a year old, and we updated to a 2020 edit with new mugs.
