Birthday gift guy you just started dating
Society6 has some pretty cheeky mugs, as does Someecards. Give him a cool listening experience with a nice set of headphones, like the Sony ones pictured, which happen to noise-canceling too.
Look for a mug that's specific to the person you're dating — i.e.: a mug that says, "I'm The Top Bitch In Cat Town," may not bode well for a dude. He told you when you first started messaging online that he music, but you noticed that he's still using the crappy headphones that came with his phone.
