People who block their knitting routinely would block it, I think. As you said (I think) that your yarn will go in the dryer then I'd say it's a personal call. For presentation as a gift, blocking would probably give it a nice finishing touch. If you block the cups you must tell how you do it! If I made one for me I'd have to line it with the carbon fiber they use for jets.

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
