If You Drink a Lot of Coffee

When volume is a priority, the Bubba Brands Keg 52 Oz Travel Mug (88/100) is worth considering. This mug holds 52 ounces of liquid, which translates to more than three large (16-ounce) coffees! You can feel free to fill this mug to capacity since its wide base will prevent it from toppling over. Most travel mugs are known for keeping drinks hot—which this one will, thanks to its thick insulated walls—but it also does wonders for cold drinks. Iced coffee, anyone?

Everyone knows accessories make the outfit, and the same goes for the travel mug you’re toting around all day. To add a splash of color to your look (or your desk, for that matter), give the Brugo Coffee Mug a try. This stylish mug comes in an array of colors in the bright, friendly Jazz collection and the more subdued, professional Executive collection. Each mug holds 16 ounces and offers a leak-proof chamber. The lid gives you the option to Lock, Sip, or Tip and Cool your drink.

If Quality is Your Top Priority

When it comes to keeping things hot and cold, there may be no more trusted brand than Thermos. Instead of carrying soup to work, keep your coffee hot in the Thermos Stainless Steel Travel Mug. This rugged carafe lives up to its name as a leader in temperature preservation. The polypropylene lid prevents spills, while the handle makes carrying easier. Plus, with a narrow base, it will fit easily in your car’s cup holder.

If Handles Aren’t Your Thing

As lightweight, affordable mugs go, the $9.99 OXO Plastic LiquiSeal Travel Mug (60/100) is a great choice. This model comes from another trusted brand and features a double-walled plastic carafe that keeps coffee hot. Its three silicone seals make sure you’ll never spill a drop. Plus, it’s easy to use. A single button opens and closes the spout, leaving you free to drive, type or text with your free hand.

If You Like to Get Personal

Sure, we’re more likely to see friends’ photos via Facebook these days, but doesn’t that make seeing them offline even more special? The Copco Scrapbook Travel Mug Set is the perfect gift for the sentimental coffee lover in your life. You can customize these mugs with your favorite photos and enjoy them every time to you take a sip. The plastic construction keeps the mugs lightweight, while a twist-top lid allows you to easily open or close the spout.

No matter what kind of coffee drinker you are, you’re sure to find a travel mug to fit your style and needs.

    Hi Ray and Nancy,

    I reached out to all these brands seeking an answer to your question. Only OXO responded, confirming that their mugs are made in China. As for the others, I have no clear answer either way. Keep in mind, though, that they do not advertise being made in America.
