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!

Stainless-Steel Mugs

Three different travel mugs are made from stainless steel.
DLOCCOLD/Fijoo/S’well

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:

Fijoo Stainless Steel Coffee Thermos

Share a cup with a co-worker.

DLOCCOLD Stainless Steel Tumbler Travel Mug with Lid

Spill-proof and multiple colors? Yes, please!

Ello Jones Stainless Steel Travel Coffee Mug

Chic and affordable is a winning combination.

Mugs with Handles

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:

YETI Rambler 20 Ounce Travel Mug

You won't have to worry about cupholder fit thanks to the unique design.

Corkcicle Coffee Mug

One of the most popular brands on the market.

Ello Campy Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Will keep your coffee hot for up to five hours.

Ceramic Mugs

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.

If you’re the type to make a vanilla latte one day but drink tea the next, these ceramic mugs are for you:

Nova Ceramics Reusable Coffee Cup

Trendy designs, and dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

Oversized Mugs

People drink from oversized mugs.
Reduce/Yeti/Umite Chef

Some of us need more coffee than others, and that’s just fine. Even if you’re not normally one of those people, though, there might be some mornings when you need a bit of an extra jolt. 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:

Reduce 50-Ounce Mug Tumbler

Perfect for increasing your water intake, as well.

Weehuxt Tumbler

Get 30 ounces of sweet, sweet coffee.

YETI Rambler 30 oz Travel Mug

Oversized with a handle.

Umite Chef Stainless Steel Tumbler with Lid

Who says bigger can't also be cute?

Dual-Purpose Mugs

Three mugs feature hidden straws.
Dopudo/bottlebottle/Stojo

After lunch, most people switch from coffee to cold beverages or water. You might think you would need a different type of drinkware for that—but you would be wrong! These dual-purpose options will also keep your cold drinks cold and even come with lids and straws for whenever you’re ready to switch from hot java to ice water:

Nephewbrand 32 oz Coffee Mug

Comes with two reusable straws and a cleaning brush.

IRON °FLASK Classic Tumbler

Clever lid design features a hidden straw insert.

Stojo Collapsible Travel Cup With Straw

Collapse and throw it in your bag at the end of the day.


Whether you’re commuting to work, heading to class, or just want to ensure you don’t spill your morning coffee all over yourself, one of these travel mugs is sure to be a perfect fit.
