• Valentine’s Day Mug Mats

    Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I always have a difficult time deciding what to make for my co-workers.  These Valentine’s Day Mug Mats are the perfect solution because they are the masculine or feminine way to decorate and protect your desk from hot and/or cold beverages!  I strongly suggest mixing and matching our Kunin Felt in a variety of colors and patterns to highlight each co-workers’ personality – the possibilities are endless!
