Novelty mugs keep things hot at home products fairPosted: July 12, 2011
The humble ceramic mug has been a staple of many home product lines for decades. Nevertheless, two of the exhibitors at this year’s CSF: Home Products Miami have some innovative ideas.
A variety of ways to drink in style
This first product from Shenzhen Biansebao is made to keep hot drinks hot for a long time, thanks to its customizable silicone top. In addition, the mug is great for those who like to hold their mugs with two hands, but who don’t like to burn themselves.
Keeping things hot is this other mug from Shenzhen Biansebao, complete with integrated stand, which is easily large and accessible enough to contain a tea light candle underneath. The overall design can be customized.
Finally, this seemingly traditional mug also has a dynamic side. When filled with hot water, the mug’s illustrations come to the fore (as pictured). When cool, it appears as a simple white ceramic mug. A great novelty item, and again, customizable to suit buyers’ needs.

A natural pairing
For all those who prefer to use a mug for soup, this beautifully designed ceramic mug set is perfect. The included spoon slots easily into the mug’s handle for easy storage, and the coordinated styling makes this a show piece in its own right.
