My favorite travel mug is the Contigo Travel Mug. It keeps your hot drink hot or cold drink cold for hours. Last week I had a doctor’s appointment. Left the house with my hot coffee, and after my appointment was over with the doctor; it was five hours since I had left the house. Coffee was still hot!

I have the 20 oz. stainless steel mug, which I linked above with amazon. I purchased a set of two at Costco for about the same price as the single on amazon.

In addition to keeping your drink hot or cold, this mug does not spill, or leak. Have you ever had on your nicest outfit, took a sip of your coffee, only to have the lid come off or spill all over you? The lid on the Contigo will not even open unless your fingers depress the button to open it. Wunderbar.

According to Contigo’s website:

They also have kid sizes. If I had kids, I would definitely get these. Of course you can ask my son, he was never allowed to eat or drink in my car. I have OCD issues. Luckily for him we never took long car trips!
