Drink Selector Mug
If I ever reached the heights of my profession to have an assistant, I would have one of these. On the mug is an indicator what your want: coffee or tea? Milk preference? Sugar? Just turn the silver bands to reveal your selection. For now, I just leave the mug out for The Boyfriend just so there's no instruction needed.
If you're too tired to talk in the morning, this mug'll do it for you. Twist the rings to reveal your choices of beverage, sugar and milk.
