Browsing on the large print-on-demand online retailer Zazzle for a while now, I started to wonder which custom coffee mugs sold best. Their Current Bestselling Mugs list includes 100 designs. I’m not surprised to find political statements, so short after the presidential elections in the US. I am surprised, however, to find 2 potty humor mugs in the first 20 mugs. I’m not surprised a coffee mug with The Hobbit logo took one of the spots in the top 100. Or to see a number of Disney mugs. I also expected to find that people like to see their photo on a coffee mug, and, indeed, they do. But what about truly funny, quirky messages. Not enough of them in this top 100.
Which is why I’ll browse more of Zazzle mugs than this top of bestsellers (as of November 14, 2012), and come back with a pick for each category showcased by Zazzle in the Mugs Department. These categories are funny mugs, quote mugs, office mugs, geek mugs, Harry Potter mugs, Disney mugs, inspirational mugs, teacher mugs, and so on. There's something for everyone this Christmas / holiday season.
