A personalized Photo Mug makes a fantastic gift for parents and grandparents, friends, team members and all those coffee lovers in your life. It lets people take cherished moments to work with them, and it’s a touching gesture for the people who mean the most to you. Here are some ideas from Costco Photo Center to create that perfect “Mug” shot.


The Family Shot

Having the family with you on a photo mug can brighten even the worst day at work. Feature a favorite memory or a photo of the kids being silly to guarantee a quick smile with every sip. But the fun doesn’t have to stop with one great photo. Costco Photo Center’s Collage Photo Mugs allow you to choose up to 30 photos for your mug and customize the layout.


The Team Mug

If you lead a great team at the office and you want to show your appreciation for all that your employees do, giving each of them a “World’s Greatest Boss” mug will get you a few laughs. If you’ve got a group of friends who helped you plan the perfect wedding, give them custom mugs featuring photos you took of them during the planning stage or the special event. It's a great way to say thanks!


The Quote Shot

Creating a custom mug with a well-known quote is great, but it’s been done before. Remember, you can add words of your own too. A loving thought, a warm sentiment, an inspirational quote or even a fake grocery list. Anything goes when creating a Photo Mug, as long as it's created with love and appreciation.
