Finding a thoughtful gift for a special occasion is sometimes difficult. That is why some may chose to give personalized beer mugs. They are very versatile as they can be used for the purpose of commemorating many different occasions. These can include a job that has been accomplished in an exemplary fashion, a college graduation, a special friendship, or two people being wed. They are thoughtful in that they are often beautiful as well as useful for many years to come. The liquids that they can contain can be much more than just beer.
One of the many ways that a glass mug of this type can be used is for containing a truly spectacular root beer float. They can be used to contain gifts of candy or other treats for individual guests of the younger variety at a party as well. Thus the fun one can have with them at most any event is only limited by one’s imagination.
To make one of these glasses a bit more personal is to put a customized design or inscription on it. The time it takes for a person to actually choose and put something on its sides of a personalized nature shows a recipient how much one feels about them. In fact there is a better feeling if one knows that they have not received something generic off the store shelf.
The variety of mugs out there to chose from virtually guarantees that there is one out there to satisfy almost everyone’s requirements. For example there are cup sizes of 16 ounces, 10 ounces, silver or gold trimmed rims, different handle styles, and a variety of colors. The fonts that one can use to engrave its side are almost unlimited as well.
What then is needed to find the best glass available? First look for one that has thick and sturdy base. In that way the temperature of the beer is kept study for a longer period of time as well as keeping the mug itself very stable when it is placed on a table or other surface.
Another characteristic or two that should be considered is the type of handle it has and the thickness of the sides. The handle allows for the better stability in handling when one takes a sip. When the glass is much thicker than normal it also helps the liquid it contains retain the temperature that it should be at longer.
Personalized beer mugs are the type of gift that has a decorative quality as well as a useful one. Beer though is not the only liquid that can be served in it. Thus it is a gift that many consider more thoughtful than purchasing one off the shelf in a random store.
