Ember Mug 2 14oz. Temperature Control Smart Mug: As the parent of an active toddler, I can't tell you how many times a cup of coffee gets brewed, and between all the running around, when we finally get to enjoy it, the coffee is ice cold. My wife dealt with this often, and after countless hours of research, I decided to pull the trigger and get her the app-controlled Ember mug. I was told that it was one of the best things I had ever given her. The mug goes into a base to charge and keeps your beverage warm for up to 80 minutes once removed from the base. Best of all, you can set the temperature and even presets on your iOS or Android device with their app. The era of cold coffee and tea is up! Courtesy of Ember. Price: $149.99

You'll get two lids as well, with one being a spill-proof sliding lid and the other being a leak-proof handle lid. Much like the Ember mug, you have full control of temperature and presets via the iOS or Android app. Price: $199.99
