Here’s a neat idea for coffee and kitcar enthusiasts – this new travel mug from Smidge is a fine thing and ideal for cars like ours that don’t often have the luxury of cup holders! Living dangerously you can try and wedge your coffee cup between your knees but that can be embarrassingly painful and basically uncomfortable.

Three different sizes of these Smidge leak-proof and insulated travel mugs are available – 236ml, 355ml and 473ml and they claim to keep your coffee hot for twelve hours or cold for an impressive 24!

The secret is a very strong lid sealer mechanism which is a two-handed job to close but well worth the cost. A 355ml medium-sized cup costs £13.99. More from ENDS.
