If coffee or tea is a non-negotiable each morning, you know the importance of a good mug all too well. After all, it's there for you during your morning pick-me-up, meetings...and your second cup. But mugs can also be decorative accents too, with some featuring stylish designs and colors that'll brighten your day just as much as the drink it's holding.

Here, we polled the teams from MyDomaine and The Spruce and got their picks for the most stylish, durable mugs they can't live without. From travel mugs to glass styles, these are the mugs we most recommend.

"I've taken my coffee game to a new level while working from home (milk frother, flavored syrups, etc.) and pride myself on the lattes I've been making every morning. I ordered this glass mug set on Amazon to make my beverage creations even more aesthetically pleasing, and they immediately became my new favorite mugs. They're the perfect size for lattes, and they look way more expensive than they actually are."—Karli Bendlin, email editor

"Sadly, the mug I currently use is not for sale—a friend of mine picked up pottery during the pandemic and has made so many awesome mugs, but if I was searching for a set, these four are unique and would work in my kitchen. I'm partial to the blue and green, but would happily use all four!"—Meg Lappe, senior commerce editor

MiiR Camp Cup

"I am a person who likes her hot drinks piping hot, and her cold drinks ice cold. Thusly, I adore this mug because it is so good at maintaining both high and low beverage temperatures. It's also very durable and sleek looking. I own two in white."—Mélanie Berliet, senior vice president and general manager

"Admittedly, my mug collection could use an upgrade—it's full of ones I've randomly collected over the years and sadly none of my favorites are available online. With that said, I've been eyeing this HAY set for a while now. I love the minimal glass design and all of the color options, though I think the amber combo is particularly gorgeous."—Jamie Weissman, associate commerce editor

"The Instagram-famous mug really is worth all the hype! I got mine during a Seconds Sale, and it's the mug I reach for every single day. It's the perfect size and has a big handle, plus looks really good sitting out. All in all, the ideal mug for whatever you're drinking."—Nicole Lund, commerce editor

Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2, Metallic

"I got this mug for my parents for Christmas after a recommendation from a coworker, and they (and I!) are obsessed. This fancy warming mug keeps drinks hot for hours. So if, like my mom, you're infamous for pouring a cup of coffee or tea, moving on to something else, forgetting about your drink and then having to warm up your mug in the microwave, you absolutely need this life-changing mug."—Emily Manchester, editorial and strategy director

"Sure, I may not be commuting to the office anymore, but I still reach for this travel mug most days. It keeps my hot coffee the perfect temperature, and my iced coffee as cold as can be. The pastel purple shade also makes me smile in the morning (which is a rarity for this night owl)."—Bridget Mallon, associate editorial director
