Why a photo mug makes a brilliant gift
Everyone loves a gift created especially for them, and a picture mug is the perfect way to brighten someone’s day. Whether you choose the sentimental, cheeky, artistic or funny option, you can customise your photo mug to match the personality of the person you’re giving it to.
The great thing about a personalised mug is the giftee can use it for the hot and cold beverage of their choice – practical and heartfelt.
They can also use their picture mug for storing pencils, pens and paper clips or even as a plant pot or candle holder.Leave it to them to get creative and see what they can fit in their personalised photo mug.
Finally, a photo mug is a smart choice for any occasion. Birthdays, Secret Santas, anniversaries and housewarmings can all be celebrated with a personalised mug.
You don’t even need an excuse for an event; you can get someone a mug to simply show you're there for them.

A photo mug for the office (or home office)
If you’re fed up with rummaging through the kitchen cupboards trying to find your coffee mug, a photo mug will help you brew up quicker.
You can print photos of your loved ones, kids and pets on your mug, so that they’re with you all the time (even at your desk).
Be the envy of your colleagues in the office with your very own personalised picture mug. Yes, mug envy is a thing.
What size photo fits on a mug?
It depends on the mug you go for. Our Simple Mug has space for one photo, while our Themed Mug has space for a collage of up to 18 photos (you can even squeeze in a caption too).
The biggest decision you’ll have is choosing which photos you want to use on your brand new coffee mug.
What’s the difference between a personalised mug and a photo mug?
A personalised mug is one that has been created specifically for the giftee. It may include their name, their favourite colour and maybe their favourite image or photo too.
A photo mug is one that has a printed image on it. It could be a photo of a loved one, their favourite place to go on holiday or a silly memory that makes them smile every time they think of it. It could even be a piece of artwork they love or their favourite meme. *Turns straight to Twitter for some meme-hunting*.
With Photobox, you can create a personalised photo mug that not only has an image on it, but a caption too. You can customise your coffee mug or tea cup to create a lovely gift that will make your giftee smile, laugh, cry with joy – or all of the above.
