For a lot of people and travelers, the best way to start your day is by imbibing a freshly brewed coffee in the morning. It's almost somewhat of a morning ritual.

The last issue you want to happen is leakage from your mug to start your day, so that should be the first factor to consider. Look for a mug that either keeps the liquid contained or in your mouth. The best ones will do so.

After assuring your mug doesn't leak, the next factor should be its size. It all depends on how much morning coffee or tea you drink, so this is subjective to each individual. Regardless, the options are seemingly endless, including 16-oz and 20-oz mugs.

For long commutes or even for holding liquids you want to keep cool or hot for a picnic, for example, later in the day, one of the most significant factors is buying a mug that can reliably keep temperature. Most vacuum-sealed mugs can keep liquids warm for a few hours and cold for even longer.
