Review: Tiny Prints Personalized Mother’s Day Coffee Mugs

Waking up in the morning to a nice steaming cup of coffee couldn’t get much better, could it? It could if the people you love most is on your coffee cup.

Mother’s day is less than 2 weeks away and I decided to get my mom, my mother-in-law, and myself a nice coffee mug with the kids’ pictures on it for that special day.

I am big about pictures. I love and cherish each picture that I have taken through the years. It’s memories that can’t ever be replaced. Whether it was their birth, holding their head up, crawling, walking, or a special place or event.

Those are what mean the world to me, and I know that is the case with other mom’s as well. They cherish those beautiful eyes and smiles, goofy grins, first teeth popping through, and first day of school.


Every morning I wake up to my 2 beautiful kids saying hello to me from my cup. I love it. There’s nothing in the world that could have said “Happy Mother’s Day” more than that. Even though it was a present to myself!

I ended up giving mom and my mother-in-law their gifts early. I couldn’t wait to see their faces when they seen the cups. They already have the random pictures spaced around their home, but neither of them have actual “THINGS” with the kids pictures on them.


My mom came and got hers first. She was in shock. She loved it! She was thoroughly happy with her gift. When you give someone a personalized gift like that, there’s no way that they won’t be happy with it.

Aidan, my 6 year old son asked my mom if she was going to drink out of the cup and she said No. She said “Nana’s going to put this up, this is a keepsake”. He said “Did you see me on your cup?” He was happy that his picture was on her cup. It made me laugh to see the way he was looking at the cup when she pulled it out of the Styrofoam.


Anita, my mother-in-law came the next day to get hers. She was ecstatic with the cup. Adam woke up when she was here and she said “Did you see the cup Jessi made for me?” She was smiling from ear to ear.

She called me later that night and told me that she was showing and telling everyone about the cup. She said she even hid it in her bedroom so that it wouldn’t get broken. I was laughing because you would’ve thought it was an antique vase worth millions the way she was acting about it.

I was truly glad that they both liked their gifts! I really love my coffee cup too. I’ve seen people with their “mugs” and never using any other mug even though they have more than 10 in their cabinets. They’d always use the same one and I wondered why. I’ve never been like that until now, and now I know why. It’s something that is cherished, loved, and YOURS!

I was very surprised at the quality of the coffee mugs. For only costing $19.99 a piece, they were VERY high quality. The pictures were very clear, you could see all the details and nothing was the least bit foggy.

The designs on the mugs are priceless, they are SO cute. There were many to choose from too, which also surprised me. They had so many that I liked, and you can customize the words, text, and colors of the background.

I am always scared of buying something breakable through the mail. Not because of the company but because the way the mail companies, UPS, and FedEx usually treat the packages. Even if they say breakable on them, they usually get thrown and tossed (it seems like it).

Even the package when it came had a hole in the top of it like someone stuck their fist through it, so I was expecting the worst when I opened it.


They all arrived perfectly though. I was so glad. Tinyprints knows exactly what they are doing when it comes to packaging something so it doesn’t get broken. The cups were snugly fit inside hard Styrofoam cases and taped tightly together.

Each box was individually placed in their own box, which is great for gift giving (in my case). There was one picture that was a little too grainy to put as a BIG picture on one of the mugs and Tinyprints emailed and called me about it so I could fix it right away. I really liked that, because it let me know right away that there was a problem and it couldn’t be sent out until the picture was changed.

So I immediately changed it, and a notice was emailed to me that the order was being shipped and I got it within 2-3 days of placing the order and finalizing it. It was easy to upload my pictures, choose which ones should be on what mug, and change the colors and texts!

It was fun, simple, and cheap! If you’re looking for a unique, personalized gift for your mother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, or grandma—this is the PERFECT place to pick one up!
