Somehow I became a collector of mugs. Rather than bringing home yet another tchotchke by which to remember a city or a cool store, I strive to pick out something functional. And anyone can use a mug. Or several.
These Boston-themed ones at Eataly have attractive graphics of local landmarks. The espresso mug in particular has a nice profile. So if you are looking for something useful to remember Boston by, these are an appealing option, methinks.
