Please help - travel mug hunt!

In desperation, I have switched from long time lurker to signing up as I seem to be looking for the impossible! Please help if you can!

I'm looking for a pretty travel mug with a handle, thermal but not ceramic, and I just can't find one anywhere. I've scoured online, including Etsy and Amazon, and can only find patterns or a handle, never both!

It is for a gift for my Mum (in her 60s), she has asked for "pretty" which I know for her means patterned not plain. On Etsy they do have print your own patterns, but it's never the whole mug.

The only ones I have found that sort of meet the brief are Swig Life mugs, but I am baulking at the idea of £33 + P&P for a travel mug (or are they actually worth it??)

I'm really looking for something online - avoiding shops due to vulnerable family member, can anyone help at all please?

Corkcicle have a travel mug with a handle, presumably it doesn't need to fit in a car cupholder? No cheaper than the one you've found though.
You can get the plain one on ASOS for £25 though but that's still pretty expensive for a mug.

Thank you! I am an idiot - she definitely would be taking it into the car, thank you for pointing that out! So I guess that does rule out the SwigLife and I'm back to the start!

It does seem crazy how much they're asking for these!

This is pretty here
Cath Kidston also does pretty floral designs for around the £15 mark

These ones have a handle, aren't ceramic, and are shaped to fit in a cupholder:[category_id]=15000

wake cup are FANTASTIC, I've bought several of them. They're bamboo on the outside so not patterned but wood effect and you can personalise. Most important of all, the lids don't make the coffee taste of plastic. Not on the High Street do them.

Thank you all!

@XiCi they are lovely thanks, but no handle sad

@rbe78 They're a bit plain for her tastes, but perfect shape and material!

@MatildaonaWaltzer Cheers, I might look at one of those for myself! But I know she wouldn't count that as pretty!

Thank you for all the suggestions, am thinking maybe she is the Goldilocks of cups!?

On Amazon search for No-Brands-Removable-Sunflower-Practical/
?There are about a dozen designs?

Is this any good?

Sorry Oodle, I thought youd ruled handles out because of the car issue

Have a look at Zazzle floral Tavel mug.

I meant Zazzle Floral Travel Mug 🤦

Thanks all, I think I'm going to have to give up! The Zazzle & Spreadshirt ones are the right shape, but I know they will be deemed too plain as the pattern isn't all over if you see what I mean?

Maybe I should just buy Costa/Starbucks vouchers instead!
