Personalized Mugs

Personalized mugs can be creative and inexpensive wedding favors. They can also be presented in really fun and creative ways!

I remember as a kid, there was a kiosk set up in the mall that had a video camera aimed at the people walking by. You could see yourself on camera. It was set up as a marketing idea to bring attention to the personalized mugs stand.

With a quick snap, the camera would take your picture, as you were, and you could add a customized saying to the bottom. I was sold! This was cutting edge technology back then! I decided I was going to take a picture of myself and slap it on a mug for my grandma. On the bottom, I opted for the saying "Here's looking at you" with a heart on the end. Charming, I know. :)

My grandma STILL has it on her buffet in the dining room after all these years.

So, needless to say, personalized mugs, although they can be cheesy at times, are a useful gift that will last over years. And if done in a really tasteful and creative way, I think make outstanding cheap wedding favor ideas.

Here's a couple of ideas for your personalized mugs:

  1. Order custom made mugs with your guests names printed on them. You can select from different patterns like the polka dotted mugs below.
