Denby Small Mug Set

Two Denby mugs

When it comes to crockery, you can always rely on Denby for durability and effortless style. You get two cups in this coffee mug set, and they're nice and small, perfect for frothy coffee. We love the glazed effect, which looks great and helps prevent chipping. The lovely blue colour would suit a relaxed, coastal kitchen.

Practical too, pop them in the dishwasher for faff-free cleaning and in the microwave when you need to reheat a forgotten brew.

Denby mug sets are also a lovely wedding present idea, and would work well as a housewarming gift too.
