Checking Our List #18: BRUGO Mug {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Emma!}

It probably doesn't come as a big shock to many people to hear that the percentage of adults who drink coffee or tea on a daily basis is a big number. A really big number.

So it's no wonder there have been so many advancements in how they are brewed and all of the fancy machines that are available to allow us to have a delicious, gourmet cup of our favorite hot beverage right at home. It's all about convenience, right?

But then, how come (up until now) there hasn't been a way to enjoy your hot beverage of choice right away without risk of scorching your tongue? Instead you end up blowing on it and blowing on it until it's just right... only to have it then be cold after a few sips. Or, even worse, you fill up your travel mug and try to grab a gulp in the car only to end up with spills or leaks in addition to the too hot or too cold temperature. Phooey.

Well, coffee and tea drinkers rejoice, there is now a solution. A modern, advanced, stylish solution in the form of the colorful and extremely easy-to-use BRUGO Mug.

Available in more than a dozen classic to bright colors in the Executive and Jazz Collections, the BRUGO is more than just another travel mug, it is the ultimate in convenience and portability for anyone and everyone who drinks hot beverages.

The secret? There are three settings for you to choose from on the lid to your BRUGO. First, you can select Lock, which doesn't just close the lid, it makes it 100% leak proof. Throw your mug into your bag or toss it on the seat next to you in the car and there are no worries of spills or splashes.

Second, there is Sip, which fully opens the spout and allows you to take a drink just like normal. And third is the magic Tip & Cool, which makes BRUGO completely unique from every other cup out there. What happens is that there is a patented, thermodynamic science within the mug that makes it possible to cool each individual sip, allowing you to enjoy your flavorful drink at just the right temperature while the rest continues to stay hot and fresh.

Sounds pretty futuristic, right? I thought so. Needless to say, when a BRUGO arrived at my door, I was pretty interested in giving it a shot:


Pretty much there is no reason not to give a BRUGO as a holiday gift to anyone who loves their coffee or tea. The cooling chamber makes it quick and easy to take an immediate drink at the perfect temperature, the leak proof lid means you can bring it along anywhere without a problem and there is a fashionable color to fit every personality - there is even a Sport Collection for those that like a more athletic look.

Plus, the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold a BRUGO Mug in your hand and the non-slip bottom and cup holder-friendly size complete the overall appeal and convenience. Family, friends, babysitters, teachers... this is a gift that would be universally loved. Hmm, perhaps they would make a good way to say thanks to a mail carrier, even?

Retailing for $19.95, you're not going to want to get just one BRUGO because then when you give it as a gift you wouldn't have one, right? Fortunately, when you order two or more, you receive 25% off (making them only $14.95)... and, if you spend $50 or more, you'll receive free shipping as well. It's time to stock up! (Side note: Be sure to add "Leakproof" to your delivery address when you do place an order, as there was an older version of the BRUGO Mug that wasn't - and of course you want the new one!)

Are you ready to give this amazing mug a try? I've used mine at home and on-the-go and have loved the convenience of being able to throw it in a bag when I don't have a hand free and then have a sip immediately when I want it at any point. It's great! And, thanks to the generosity of BRUGO, one person will get to discover the difference that the Perfect Temperature Zone technology can make for them, because...

One lucky person will win a BRUGO Mug of their own!

To enter to win: Visit BRUGO and tell me the name of the color mug you like the best. I'd also love to know who the lucky recipient of this gift would be!

I love the blue mug, but it would certainly be hard to choose because of all the pretty colors! I would be the lucky recipient of this if I won! :) I am always spilling my coffee because my mugs always somehow get tipped. I would love a mug with an anti-leak feature!!! My coffee is always getting cold, too, so this would be great!
