It's wonderful when objects can make you feel more aware of the activity at hand, stimulating a mindful experience that's incredibly healthy. The Hug Cup by Eszter Imre does just this, encouraging you to connect with your comforting warm beverage and taking the time to appreciate it and relax for a moment.

The quirky little mug accomplishes this great task in a pair of related ways. Firstly, it takes on an unconventional appearance, causing the user to give it more consideration than he would his usual coffee cup. What makes the ceramic Hug Cup unique is the hole molded into the middle. With a colorful and protective silicone skin, this feature requires you to get close with the vessel, holding it with your thumb right through it.
