Animal Cups and Mugs

If you're looking for a gift for an animal lover, cups and mugs can make lovely presents.  There are some delightful ranges about, and some of them give you the chance to support wildlife conservation and the conservation of animal habitats with your gift.  Every time your loved one makes a hot drink, they can enjoy your gift and know that your gift has helped wildlife.
 

Animal Mugs from Emma Bridgewater

Emma Bridgewater have some great animal mugs. There are a range of animals to choose, with varying breeds of dogs, cats, birds, hens and farm animals as well.  So they're a great website to take a look at if for example you want a gift for someone who loves cows, sheep or pigs, dogs, cats, and birds.  

They've also got mugs for humans and both small and large bowls for pets, and you can personalise them, for example in the case of the bowls you could put the owner's dog's name, or cat's name!

This is the RSPB  Life on the edge puffin tea infuser mug for £16.00. 

This is the RSPB  Life on the edge puffin tea infuser mug

It's got a removable basket and lid, and the lid lets the full flavour of the tea develop just as it would in a teapot.  It helps keep the tea warm for longer.  You can use it with tea leaves, a tea bag or ground coffee.  It's dishwasher safe, although the recommendation is that you wash the infuser by hand.   Find out more here.

The RSPB has other mugs, too, with an "In the wild" range, more mugs featuring puffins, kingfishers and hedgehogs.  Take a look at the range here
