sometimes you really do just want that little extra in your mug rather than getting up and down, and this works perfectly for it. The only thing I was a bit unhappy with is the fact the outside of the mugs had marks and scratches on it, thus taking some of the 'paint work' off. :( None the less the size is massive and my husband and I worked out that it holds approx 2 and a half cups of tea/coffee, to give you a rough idea. Highly amusing for a gift though.
This mug really is massive. It came with a good few layers of packaging including two boxes, buffer paper and bubble wrap. There were a few imperfections (air bubbles) on the design, but no chips or cracks. We've used it for massive mugs of hot chocolate and tea, and even cereal - and it hasn't been damaged. It has a big sturdy handle, unlike other giant mugs that have smaller handles. Good stuff!
This mug is huge! The design on it was nicely done, and my dad thought it was a funny Christmas present. However when he actually tried to use it there was a small crack in the bottom meaning his tea leaked out. I don't know how this crack came to be, whether it appeared during post or if it occurred when it was at my house though.
