Fun and Funny Mom Mugs, Mother's Day Gifts Under $25

by Mira

Fun and/or humorous custom mugs (which you can personalize further) that would make nice gifts for Mother's Day.

I was on Zazzle today and they were showcasing a funny mom mug. I decided to take a look at Zazzle's offer under that category. I didn't find any big surprises ("Best Mom Ever" / "I'm a mom. What your superpower?" and so on), but I think even these old messages can be okay in a good way when presented as a gift. I mean, I bet any mom would love yet another "Best Mom Ever" mug over boring plain solid-color (or white) mugs. Also, remember that you can personalize these custom mugs further by adding a photo, your name, the name of your mother, etc.

So here's a selection of fun or downright funny mugs for mothers of all ages.

Remember you can also take your mother out for Mother's Day
Cappuccino and Blueberry Pie

I'm a Mom. What's Your Superpower?

I'm always amazed at how mothers do it, and by it I mean everything: being there in the evening after long hours at work when the kid or kids need her, taking the kid to all sorts of activities, looking everywhere for gifts for other kids' birthdays, staying up all night when a kid is sick, talking long hours with her child when he/she is older and wants to share things, cooking all those healthy meals all the time, and so on. Yes, that to me is a superpower.

I'm retired. But I work part-time spoiling my grandkids!

Once a mother, always a mother. When she's done raising her own kids, she's ready to help out raising the grandkids. True, I've heard of mothers that weren't that eager, but the vast majority are. Which is quite amazing. Also amazing is how much they remember from when their own kids were babies. I love it when friends who become new moms allow their mothers to pass the baton in ways big or small, even when they want to raise their children differently.

Lord, Give me coffee to change the things I can, and wine to accept the thing I can't

This one was among the featured products in the Funny Mom Mugs category on Zazzle. I can see the appeal, especially as wine can make you feel quite good after only half a glass.

You may not talk to me yet mug with quotes

Speaking of coffee, I made a mug for those frazzled mornings many a mom experience. It's one of those "you may not talk to me yet" mugs; it reads "Sleep Drinking. Monosyllabic Sleep Talking. Just a minute! Here, I'll do it. I love you too, honey."

Instant Mom. Just add coffee!

This is a version of "Instant human. Just add coffee." I also relates to another funny mom mug, "Who are these kids and why are they calling me Mom" as well as to a gradation "waking up" mug that incorporates all the above ideas.

You can't scare me. I have kids.

Another Mom meme is "You can't scare me. I have kids." Looking on Zazzle for different designs with this statement I found a matching meme: "You can't scare me. I have parents." It probably wouldn't be fun to give the latter to one of your parents (and it's not meant for them, anyway), but giving the scare + kids mug to a mother may make her smile many a time as she tries to cope with all the demands of motherhood throughout the day.

I'm Your Mom. Your argument is invalid.

If you argue a lot with your mother, you can lighten up the atmosphere a bit with a humorous mug once you realize that you won't be able to change her and that there's fun, too, in your head-to-head exchanges. Alternatively, you could give her a "Listen to your mother" mug. I was curious about the image and the statement, and learned that there actually is a "Listen to your mother" show. Well, if she likes it, then she'll like this mug. P.S. Apparently the show is actually "a national series of live readings by local writers in celebration of Mother's Day." It was created by blogger Ann Imig.

You can also make your own mug

There are many mugs to explore on Zazzle, and you can also make your own mug very quickly using your own photo(s) and text. Just click on any of the images, and then on "Customize it" in order to remove the designs or personalize them further. Alternatively, you can click on the frosted mug shown to the right. Note that there are many styles of mugs to choose from, and also several sized.

Have fun and happy Mother's Day!

I think mothers sometimes get less gifts than our friends do. It's wonderful to have a Mother's Day.

Every Mom appreciates a thoughtful gift from her kids. These mugs would make Mom smile.

Mira, Yes, you do not want to forget "Shakespeare mugs." That must have been so mind-expanding to devote such a concentrated amount of time to Shakespeare's plays. I admire your diligence in persevering and in referencing your dictionaries. It is a great joy to be pulled into an author's writings.
I hope that you are able to spare the time for this endeavor this summer.

I should write this down before I forget it: do Shakespeare mugs. I once read many of his plays in one season. I don't remember which season it was, but it involved lots of sunlight. Perhaps spring leading into summer? I was discovering Shakespeare through Charles and Mary Lamb's summaries and the works themselves. It was a powerful experience. I stayed cooped indoors for hours on end, many days on end, checking two dictionaries (English-English and English-Romanian). I look forward to recreating some of that atmosphere this summer -- if I remember about this and can spare the time, which I hope I will be able to.

Mira, Good ideas. Shakespeare seems to be quite marketable because there's always something relevant in his timeless words.

Thank you, Violette!
