When you’re in a rush to get to work or class, but still need that morning coffee boost, a good travel mug is a must! From insulated stainless steel that’ll hold up for even the clumsiest of java-lovers to more aesthetically pleasing ceramic options, your perfect travel mug is out there, so let’s find it!
If you work outdoors, are particularly active, or you’re a bit on the clumsy side, a stainless-steel mug is the way to go. Not only will these mugs keep your coffee hot for hours, but they’re also pretty much damage-proof.
For those who need a sturdy on-the-go cup, here are some of our favorite stainless-steel options:
S'well Stainless Steel Tumbler with Clear Slide-Open Lid
Yes, stainless-steel can be colorful.
Rubbermaid Leak Proof Flip Lid Thermal Bottle
Sometimes, classic is best.

Depending on the size of the cup holder in your car, you might not want a travel mug with a handle. However, if you’re looking for a mug to leave at the office, or you walk or take public transportation to work, a handle will give you a better grip and make it much easier to sip.
These are some of our favorite mugs with handy handles:

Worried about a metallic taste from stainless steel? Ceramic is the answer! Not only does it not leave behind any flavor, but it’s also less likely to absorb the flavor of anything you put in it.

That’s why it’s a good idea to have at least one oversized mug in your arsenal, and any of these options will do the trick:
