Chalk it up!

Blackboard mug: "your message here"

Here’s a nifty gift I stumbled upon (not literally) today: a blackboard mug.  Painted with blackboard-type paint, and packaged with two sticks of chalk, it enables the owner to write their own message on their mug:

“Back in 5 minutes”

“Milk and two sugars in mine, thanks”

or perhaps a doodle, some hasty arithmetic, the phone number somebody just gave you?

Either way, I think it’s a clever, amusing gift – ideal for the young (8 to 13, I’m thinking would be best) or young at heart.

I don’t have anyone specific in mind for it just yet, but it was the last one in the shop, and at twelve bucks seemed too good a deal to pass by, so for now it’s in the gift drawer, until the right recipient comes along.
