I didn't want to participate in this. You can see by the picture why. These mugs are my two favourite mugs. The one on the left is a big book publisher's mug I won off their Facebook page. You see it is well worn, faded and scratched. There is writing on the back but I couldn't tell you what it says. The mug on the right is from my daughter's university. When she first gave it to me, my older daughter put it in the dishwasher and the print came right off. So the younger took it back to the university store and they gave her another one saying it shouldn't have done that. Regardless, I won't put it in the dishwasher. But, as you can see, there is a big chip out of it. But I'm not parting with it. I can avoid the chip when I drink from it. I am a proud Mom of a Brock University student. So those are my two go-to mugs. Not nearly as exciting as others I've seen on here.

I think they are great. I'm a Mom like you and we are always using items from our daughters. I'm sorry to hear the print came off when it was placed in the dishwasher. I didn't do the mug photograph because no favorite, as I would have a tall stack with various awards won by both daughters and ones given to me over the years. I collect mugs, so this is a lot harder for me. I have boxes of mugs given over the years and that doesn't include my colleges went to three or all of the colleges daughters attended now or in the past. My youngest attended three colleges like me.

@Fishmomma @montero I like the Harper Collins mug particularly because of the size and shape. I don't know what it is but it's perfect for me and my morning tea.

They are great. Some of the best one's are the best just because of the memories. I wouldn't part with it either. Lol

@BRiT89 My daughters bought me the William & Kate Royal Wedding mug. That one is sitting untouched in the china cabinet. I don't want to risk breaking that one.

@BRiT89 It's pretty... and delicate. I would break it for sure if I used it.

I never put decorated mugs, cups and saucers in the dishwasher, I always wash them.

As long as they mean something to you that's all that matters.

They are great go-to mugs and it doesn't matter how they look - its their comfort that they bring that matters
