Adding cozy to your space doesn’t always have to be complicated. Sure there are tons of items out there you can use to create the ultimate cozy evening but sometimes something as simple as a cheerful mug to enjoy your morning coffee or evening tea in can brighten and warm any day.
I for one am a huge fan of cozy decor, but if you’re looking for simple ways to find your hygge the perfect mug is a good place to start.
Here are some of the cutest, coziest, and most unique mugs I’ve found in my own search for adding cozy to my life all year long.
Top 10 Cozy Mugs For Everyday Use
Nothing is more cozy than handmade pottery. The Clay in Motion handwarmer mug is not only unique and stylish but it’s also functional. This mug is designed to keep your hands warm as you sip your hot drinks.
Made in the USA the handwarmer mugs are 5 inches tall and come in a variety of colors. There are even left or right handed choices to fit your personal preference.
Each mug holds up to 14 ounces of liquid and is microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe. Every mug is lead-free as well.
Because these cozy handwarmer mugs are handmade each one is a little bit different and has its own personal touch.

Coffee Kuksa’s are the ultimate camping coffee/tea/beverage mug. They’re lightweight, easy to hold, transportable, durable, and perfect for everyday use.
The Uberleben brand of handmade coffee kuksa is handcrafted with durable hardwood that can withstand your first, second, and even third cup of your daily brew.
Each cup is handmade and slightly unique but they are made to hold around 12 fl. oz. each.
Each mug comes with it’s own leather lanyard, carabiner, and care instructions.
The mugs are natural and ecofriendly. The hardwood is 100% sustainable and, of course, bpa free. There is no coating or finish on the wood, it’s all natural and chemical free.
Coffee Kuksa’s are a naturally cozy mug due to the raw natural wood and the handmade nature of them. If you travel a lot and need a durable, lightweight mug that will bring the cozy with you these types of mugs are a fantastic way to do that. They also look amazing hanging in a kitchen that has cozy rustic decor.
I have multiple kinds of pottery mugs on my ultimate cozy mug list because they are truly the ultimate kind of mug. Clay holds in the heat, is very durable, and easy to clean.
These Irish coffee/tea mugs are handmade using a traditional style created by the master potter of the Castle Arch Studio in Kilkenny Ireland.
Each mug is a little different because they are handcrafted but they fit around 8-10 fl. oz. of liquid and are dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each mug is hand glazed and none of them contain lead.
These mugs come in sets of two and are durable and made to be used daily.
Handmade pottery is cozy and these mugs aren’t something you see everyday.
Sometimes cute=cozy and these marshmallow mugs are probably one of the cutest mug sets you’ll ever see.
These mugs are much smaller than your standard coffee mug, they fit more in the espresso mug category but for a cozy evening with the kids having hot chocolate they are perfect.
Although they are made with ceramic these mugs are not dishwasher or microwave safe. It’s a stretch to say that they are great for everyday use, but I couldn’t help but add them to my cozy mug list due to their insane level of cuteness.
This cozy mug is starting to move into holiday territory but I think it still could be used year round by cozy lovers.
It’s a simple camping style mug made with galvanized steel with an enamel coating. It holds 18 oz of liquid and is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
If you are looking for holiday mugs there is another version that says “Merry + Bright” instead of “Warm + Cozy”. Be sure you check the text on the mug you choose before you purchase because it’s easy to mix them up.
The text is simple but very cozy and an easy way to make your day a little warmer. If you’re an avid camper it’s could also be a fantastic addition to your camping dinnerware as these mugs don’t break, ever.
The CNDota mug looks like a regular double-walled glass mug from the side but has a cute, cozy heart shape when you look into the mug from above.
The heart is cool but the mug itself is pretty great too. Made with Borosilicate glass the heart mug is lightweight but more durable than regular glass. It’s also much better at holding in heat that a regular ceramic mug.
It can withstand temperatures of up to 329°F which is plenty of resistance for boiling liquids like coffee.
The layers are not vacuumed for safety reasons as the heat from the liquid can cause vacuumed glass layers to crack. It’s better for safety but means it’s recommened to hand wash this cozy mug instead of using the dishwasher.
This mug is not microwave safe.
It holds 8 ounces of liquid.
When I think of cozy winter evenings my mind always goes to red flannel. I’ve spent many a snowy day wrapped in my favorite flannel jacket sitting by a wood stove sipping hot chocolate.
These red flannel patterned mugs are made to look like the nostalgic metal camping mugs but they are actually stoneware, which means they are dishwasher and microwave safe.
The cozy mugs come in sets of two and are able to hold 14 ounces of liquid.
The pattern also makes these mugs perfect for cozy rustic decor and could even be used for holidays and fall decorations.
The “lazy days” porcelain mugs are an uncommon geometric shape with gold lettering and a gold marbled design. They are larger than most of the mugs on this list and great for those who enjoy a big cup of coffee in the morning and through the day.
There are 3 color options and each mug holds up to 14 oz of liquid.
Because of the gold lettering, these cute mugs are not microwave or dishwasher safe but they are easy to clean with a soft cloth or sponge.
The Dowan ceramic coffee mugs have a retro sort of feel to them with the bulky mug shape and the brown cork bottom.
Each mug comes with a lid for travel and the cork on the bottom not only insulates but acts as it’s own built in coaster.
Note the cork bottom is not removable which means the mugs are not microwave or dishwasher safe. It’s recommended to hand wash only.
These cozy retro mugs come in 4 different color options and sets of 2. Each mug holds up to 15 oz of liquid and is perfect for those who love classic ceramic mugs but want something that’s slightly more uniqe than the classic coffee mug.
Last but not least the “Get Cozy” ceramic campfire mug by SB Design Studio. It’s simple, but the message is clear. You can be a little more direct about your love for cozy with this mug in your hand on a cold fall morning.
The mug holds up to 13 oz of liquid and measures 4 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall.
They are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Get the classic metal camping mug look without having to sacrifice the thermal insulating properties of a good ceramic mug. There’s really not much more to say other than it’s time to get cozy.
