Cups are for Life, but also for Christmas
Discounts and planet-saving in one handy stocking-filler
A last-minute addition to every self-respecting Brummie's stocking this season is The Brum Cup (£10). Created by Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and designed by local artist, Olive Burke, the eco-friendly, reusable vestibule gets you the holy trinity of goodness: environmental points, Brummie points and exclusive sort of coffee-based discounts. From 10% off at the likes of Tilt, Bar Opus and Quarter Horse to a discount of 20 of your hard-earned pence at Medicine Bakery, you'll be helping the planet and, presumably, your chances of getting a mortgage. Order your cup right here by 5pm today (Thursday) and it will be dispatched tomorrow, in time to beat St Nick. Use code "ICHOOSE" at checkout for a £2 discount, making the cup but £8. Or head over to BMAG's shop from midday today (Dec 19) if your need is even more urgent. And in case you're somehow not already entirely convinced — look! the cup's even got our name on it. We have literally given it our seal of approval.
