Kid-Drawn Mother’s Day Mom Mugs

For quite a few recent holidays, I told everyone that the only thing I really wanted was a coffee mug. I was completely serious. Just a coffee mug, with a saying or design that fits who I am. What I love about these Kid-Drawn Mother’s Day Mom Mugs is that kids can make them completely personalized and unique, which also makes them super sweet and the perfect gift.

Hey dads, stumped on what to make mom for Mother’s Day? Does she love coffee? Maybe tea. Hot chocolate, even. Then she’ll love these mugs! Even if she doesn’t love coffee, though I don’t know how that’s possible, she has to love some kind of drink. Consider giving her special personalized gifts like these mugs to add an extra thoughtful touch and make the present uniquely hers.
