For the Supervisor with a Sense of Humor
Going for a laugh is usually a good idea when picking out a good boss mug. Here are a few funny boss coffee mugs that made us chuckle.
The Classic Michael Scott “World’s Best Boss” Mug
Is your boss a fan of The Office?
Wait, is that a serious question? Who isn’t a fan of the Office?
The World’s Best Boss mug from the classic sitcom’s pilot episode is sure to get a laugh from your supervisor.
And if you’re the boss yourself, this is one of the few self-congratulatory boss mugs you could buy that will get laughs over eyeballs.
What’s in a Boss?
This boss nutritional facts mug lists the daily values of all of the ingredients found in a boss, including:
- Hard-working – 1000%
- Unrivaled skill – 500%
- Passion – 300%
- Sleep – 0%
- Caffeine 110%
The fine print at the bottom of the mug slips some more humor in, mentioning that the serving size of “1 awesome boss” is “not a significant source of gratitude received.”
The Unicorn Boss

The iconic Star Wars text is sure to catch some eyes throughout the office.
Just be aware that you could find yourself in a heated debate between the Star Wars fans and the Star Trek faction of the office.
Who Da Best Boss?
The previous mug isn’t the only Star Wars-themed mug available.
This mug features the corny pun “Yoda Best Boss,” with a cute cartoon drawing of everyone’s favorite Jedi master.
We think the pun is corny enough to be funny, and we’re pretty sure your boss will appreciate it, too, if they’re half the Star Wars nerd we are.
A Good Boss Is Hard to Find
Remember the pandemic toilet paper shortage of 2020? If your boss has the right sense of humor, this mug featuring a pandemic joke could have them in stitches.
The mug reads, “A boss like you is harder to find than toilet paper during a pandemic.”
We found the cartoon roll of toilet paper pretty funny as well, complete with a pair of blue sunglasses and a “cheeky” grin.
A Nice Hot Cup of the Tears of My Staff
This one might be a little intense for some, but we think it can work if your boss has a more absurd sense of humor.
This white ceramic boss mug features the text “These are the tears of my staff,” surrounded by several clear blue teardrops.
It makes for a great boss gag gift if you have the right rapport in your office.
I Didn’t Choose the Boss Life; the Boss Life Chose Me
This mug is braggadocious enough that it becomes funny rather than obnoxious.
The 20-ounce tumbler reads, “I never asked to be the world’s best boss, but here I am, absolutely crushing it!”
It also features many useful features, like food-grade stainless steel, heat and cold resistant insulation, sweat-free technology, and a BPA lid.
What Do You Get for the Best Boss Ever?
We found this one serious to the point of being funny.
It simply displays “Best. Boss. Ever.” in dramatically bold black text on a white ceramic mug.
You can also get the reverse, white text on a black mug.

It simply reads, “You’re awesome. Keep that shit up.”
Best F’n Boss Mug
Another great way to show some recognition to your boss in a funny way, this “Best Effen Boss” mug sensors the big “F word,” keeping it more PG-13 than R-rated.
What’s Coffee Spelled Backwards?
This clever play on words offers a bit of racy humor.
While there’s technically no swear word written on here, the mug reads, “Coffee spelled backward is Eeffoc, as in I don’t give for about anything until I’ve had my coffee.”

More Serious Options to Show your Appreciation
We’ve shown you many goofy choices so far, but there are also plenty of options with a more serious tone. Here are some options for good boss mugs to show your boss you care.
Not Only a Boss But a Mentor
In many workplaces, the boss is more than just a supervisor. They are a mentor and a leader. This mug pays tribute to those extraordinary bosses who go that extra mile for their employees.
If your boss has helped you grow personally and professionally and has maybe even become a friend, this gift box will help show your appreciation in a classy way.
The elegant black and gold gift box opens to reveal a mug with the same color scheme. The mug reads:
“It’s one thing to be a boss, another thing to be a mentor, but a completely different thing to be a leader. We are proud to be led by a boss, mentor, and leader like you.”
The back of this double-sided mug features flying seagulls and a rudder, with the text “Captain a great”.
Finally, the gift box includes a gold spoon, a black cup lid with the same seagulls, and a greeting card.
For a Boss No One Could Forget
This stainless steel-insulated travel mug is a great gift option for the boss constantly moving around the town.
If your boss is the type to walk into the office with a coffee he already drank half of on his commute, they would be sure to get good use out of this travel mug.
