Chinese New Year Mugs – What’s your Zodiac Animal?

There are 12 Zodiac Signs. Chinese zodiac animals have lucky meanings. It’s believed that people born in a given year have the personality of that year’s animal. Each zodiac animal’s year comes around every 12 years, and each year is associated with a zodiac animal. People born in a certain animal year are believed to have attributes of that animal, which could either help or hinder a relationship. With Valentines Day coming up, perhaps you could buy a Zodiac Mug for yourself and your significant other (let’s hope you have compatible traits)

Zodiac Mugs make perfect birthday gifts all year round.

What could be more fun, than to gift your friend a personalised mug with their Chinese Zodiac animal and see if they match the personality traits?
