• Suckao ($13.50) Looks like an egg, works like a burner. Fill the metal cup with warm milk, then light a candle underneath and add bits of chocolate to taste until you’ve created the perfect, custom hot cocoa.
• Hug Mug ($8.90) Brenner’s classic mug, this made-to-be-cradled cup warms hands while it fills bellies.
• Kangaroo ($12.50) A pouch on the side of this mug is made to fit a small piece of chocolate. Let it melt before you eat it. Chocolate’s better when it’s warm and gooey.
• Alice ($13.50) Brenner tags this Wonderland-inspired glass “the ultimate milk shake cup.” It won’t make you larger or small, but if you fill it with the right stuff, it will make you very happy.
