The Internet’s Favorite Coffee Mug Is Back! — And This Time It’s Shaped Like a Unicorn
You'll be sipping pretty with this one-of-a-kind cup.
You know those items that are just SO cute, they sell out the minute they go on sale? Something tells us this adorable unicorn-shaped coffee mug is quickly on its way to being one of those products. The magical design from Etsy seller Lily Anne Store is the newest — and dare we say the cutest — addition to the shop's ever-growing line of animal-shaped mugs. It’s also the only version that’s still currently available for purchase. The rest are completely sold out and waitlisted, so you’re going to want to order yours A.S.A.P!
We first laid eyes on the brand way back in December when we were putting together our annual Coffee Lovers’ Gift Guide; we’ve been pretty obsessed ever since. Like all the other mug designs offered by the shop, this unicorn-shaped one is crafted from borosilicate glass, a material celebrated for its ability to withstand extreme changes in temperature. (Fun fact: It’s also the same exact glass Pyrex uses to make their best-selling bakeware and casserole dishes.) The mug also features a double-walled design, so you can use it to hold a delicious variety of hot and iced beverages without worrying about scalding your fingers or shocking your hands. Avid coffee and tea drinkers know just how BIG a deal this truly is. It’s even dishwasher-safe, so you can clean it up in a hurry during a busy week of working or schooling from home.
Functionality aside, the must-have mug also makes a great buy for anyone — kids included! From its two tiny ears, to its tiny little horn, to its rainbow-colored hair, this enchanting mug truly sparks joy. We guarantee you’ll feel happier just by looking at it. Take it from me — I bought one as a “just because gift” for myself last week, and I haven't been able to stop smiling! Finding it sitting in your cardboard is just as joyful.
If you have a picky eater at home who refuses to drink their milk at night or finish their glass of orange juice in the morning, this whimsical mug might also help. Part of its overall charm comes from its clear, see-through design, which totally “comes to life” when you pour a drink inside it, especially something as brightly-hued as matcha or this copycat Pink Drink from Food Network Kitchen. Seriously, even plain old black coffee is instantly jazzed up once it's poured inside.
Though you'll have to wait quite a bit of time for the store's other one-of-a-kind designs to be restocked (you can choose from a cat, a duck, a dog, a bear, a narwhal and a pig), this playful unicorn mug is the perfect thing to keep you company in the meantime. Now the only question is: should you order one or a set of four?!
