Color Me Mine If you've got some budding artists in your family, kids can make a personal mug for dad by visiting one of these paint-it-yourself studios, with an array of options such as beer steins and travel mugs. Once completed, the studio finishes the project by dipping it in glaze and firing it. Because it takes time to receive the finished product back, you'll have to plan ahead for this one. colormemine.com

Editor's Notes

June 09, 2020:

A mug might seem like a simple, boring gift, at first glance, but if chosen with thoughtfulness, it can become an everyday favorite beverage holder that will deliver your sentiment to your father day after day. So the slogan or picture on the mug is equally as important as the quality and durability of the actual mug.

In terms of quality, we chose mugs that didn't fade or run from the dishwasher if they were marked as dishwasher safe. The key is ensuring the mugs got through a permanent printing process. For this update as well we replaced the admittedly hilarious "Who's Your Daddy?" Darth Vader option because it was only a decal. The baby Yoda replacement from Such Mugs US sports beautiful printing and you get two size options, while the Vader mug only came in a very small size.

We also added the Pearhead #Dadlife for it's modern aesthetic and hefty size. It's an excellent choice for young dads making the transition from lingering in coffee shops for hours, to #Dadlife.

While not available just as a gift for Daddy, we decided to include the USA Custom Gifts personalized option, as photo gifts are always popular for families. They ship out surprisingly quickly for a customized product and use a quality mug that is microwave and dishwasher safe.
