This coffee mug designed by Tiago Goncalves would be perfect for holding your java as you tried to persevere through marathon gaming sessions. The cup itself is simple enough, but it’s got spiffy Game Boy graphics printed onto it that’s sure to send anyone who owned the retro handheld console on a delightful nostalgia trip. And once you reach the bottom of the mug, you’re greeted with an awesome pixilated "Game Over" sign, letting you know it’s time for a refill. It's as though drinking from the cup is also a game of sorts.

Tiago Goncalves created the cup for a college assignment and explained that he’d had an affinity for video games since a child, so it just made sense for his coffee mug to be themed around gaming. He’s currently studying in Portugal to become a graphic designer.
