If you are looking for a small Valentine’s gift for a steampunk fan, you may want to consider a steampunk coffee mug. We thought that we would offer an array of steampunk coffee mugs (or tea mugs) featuring one of steampunk’s favorite motifs, the octopus. We went to two of our favorite vendors, Amazon and Etsy, to find funny, interesting and beautiful steampunk octopus tentacle mugs and cups that make lovely steampunk gifts for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, housewarming or just because gifts for friends and loved ones. These mugs come in a range of prices, so there is an octopus mug for every budget starting at approximately $12 that will be appreciated by your gift recipient. Styles of mugs also range widely from cartoon portrayals to stunning artistic representations. Many of the mugs have matching dishes and serving pieces which you can browse on the product page or vendor shop. I think you will enjoy browsing this list just for fun even if the octopus is not your favorite steampunk theme.
