I was reading one of my new favourite blogs the other day – Coletterie, which is packed full of tips on sewing and dressmaking. Unusually there was a mention of a product, which made me head straight down to my nearest Ikea store. That product was the Pokal mug, although it is more of a large glass than a mug, but lets not quibble over that.
For me, these mugs are strictly a summer time item, where I can sip ice cold, thick milkshakes, from the cool stoneware vessels. At £1.69 each, they are a little pricy for Ikea, but still a good quality product, which has a lovely retro design. Large enough to use as a vase or for desk storage, but I will use them for my cooling midday drink. Just add a milkshake, a long straw and a deck chair. Oh and some sunshine would be great too!
Would be great if they did other colours, a pale yellow for instance would be ideal, which I would of course rename as ‘vanilla’ :).
Rating 4.5 out of 5
Verdict: A little bit pricy, hopefully the cost will come down during the forthcoming sales, but overall a great item.
