We have had a run of bad luck with breaking dishes lately. More specifically, we're busting more mugs than a punch-drunk boxer. So I decided to get Dan some coffee cups for Christmas. I love it when a gift can be practical and personal at the same time.
I like to drink from soup-bowl sized vessels, but Dan prefers small cups that he can refill so the coffee stays hot. I found two cute little cappuccino cups in the housewares section at Zehr's (a local grocery store) for $3.00 each.
A few minutes with a Sharpie marker and a half-hour in the oven at 350 degrees produced these:
I was too excited to wait until Christmas with all of the presents under our tree, so I've been getting Dan to open a gift a day for a while now!
