While we were in Fnland we visited the iittala store in Helsinki and fell in love with this pattern. The Finnstyle website was a helpful way to purchase a mug that will always remind us of our time there.

The mugs are beautiful and fun. I particularly liked the black Italia coffee mugs. I would like one more but they are not listed currently.
  • Any ideas for male gifts?
  • I wish boxes were included. It is difficult to find a box that would accommodate the shape.of the mugs.
  • Suggestions are welcome.

A special mug that makes any beverage feel special
December 13, 2022
I got this mug as a bonus gift with another purchase. The whole order was sent to a special person as a gift. I got many thanks for the mug, for the design and size which encouraged lingering over a hot drink on a cold morning. I may need to get another mug for that household.

Pretty, but...
January 31, 2022
Bought this mug in blue, white and red. Overall impression is that of a rather heavy, overly solid, mug.
Expected a little more lightness and grace from an iittala product. Except for the recognizable design, could easily be mistaken for a nice "Made in China" mug.

But, they are pretty and the large size will be perfect for the intended gift recipient who likes larger mugs for her tea and coffee. So they are fine. But I wouldn't like these for myself, despite loving other iittala products (glassware).

I usually like the bigger cup for my morning coffee, but it is sometimes hard to find one like this.
It surely holds good amount of coffee I need, and I love the detailed design and the color.
I got a pair (blue and white) this time, but now more pairs are on my wishlist!

I wanted to give something special from Finland to a friend in the US. I chose Taika Mug. It is unique, it is different and it is beautiful. Some time ago I sent some Taika dinner ware as a wedding gift for a young couple in the US. I live in Finland and FinnStyle in Minnesota is such an easy way to send Finnish gifts to friends.

Everything about this it's perfect. The shape, the color, the feel...
I bought this one and the white for day and night use, but now that they became my husband's favorite mug too I have to get another set. In fact I might just I'll replace all our mugs to these ones so I can make sure I start and end my day with perfect cups of coffee and tea the way I like.

These mugs are the perfect size with a comfortable handle. They have the heft of a mug but have a more delicate rim that is much nicer to drink from. The finish is glossy and gorgeous. I've owned a set of red Taika mugs for 8 years and used them daily, and none has ever chipped or shown any flaws. I'm buying more in blue because they are the only mugs that anyone in my household wants to use.
