What comes to your mind when you reminisce about past holiday seasons? For me, it’s warmth – the warmth of a fire burning in the fireplace, the warmth of gathering with family and friends, and of course, hot food and other refreshments.
A great holiday gift incorporates factors of what makes the holidays so special. Promotional insulated drinkware items, also known as travel mugs and tumblers, are useful items that recipients can use not only during the holidays, but year round. Promotional drinkware items have already proven to be a hit among consumers, with 53% of U.S. consumers owning at least one promotional drinkware item, according to ASI. Consumers value promotional items like drinkware because they are useful and functional items that enhance their daily lives.
We’ve handpicked a collection of the highest-quality insulated drinkware items that will make great holiday gifts for your client base or employees. Review the 8 products below to see which special features will resonate with your recipients.
1. Tuscany Thermos
The Tuscany Thermos will make a bold impression on your customers or employees this holiday season. This thermal bottle is made of stainless steel, which makes for a striking appearance as well as a durable build. The bottle holds 16.9 oz of liquid that can remain hot or cold for hours. This product is ideal for recipients who engage in outdoor activities like hiking or camping where refreshments are needed on-the-go.
The personalization aspect of this product is unique; the bottle features a faux leather sleeve where your company logo will be debossed. The sleeve comes in red, orange, black, green, light blue, and navy blue so you can find an option that matches your brand colors. Consider this chic item when gifting clients/customers and employees.
2. Tervis Insulated Tumblers
These clear tumblers keep liquids hot or cold just like any other insulated drinkware item; however, these items are unique because of the branding options. Each logo featured on the travel mugs are intricately embroidered pieces that rest in between the tumbler walls. These gifts are perfect for people who like simple, everyday items that they can make full use of. These items are ideal for people on-the-go; they are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Each of the Tervis Insulated Tumblers have a unique design and style. The 24 oz promotional tumbler has a top that clips shut along with a loop that makes it easier to hold during physical activities. The personalized tumbler in the middle also holds 24 oz of hot or cold liquids, however, has a screw on lid that functions more like a coffee lid. In addition to the lid style, the cup is slimmer on the bottom so you can hold it like a regular coffee mug. The last model is 16 oz Tervis Tumbler that has the smooth shape of the first tumbler with the coffee like lid of the second. Be sure to consider the style and features of each mug to pick the best model for your recipients.
3. Insulated Coffee & Tea Tumbler
Though USA Today says 83% of U.S. adults drink one or more cups of coffee daily, doesn't mean that we should forget about the tea drinkers out there! In fact, according to Forbes, about half of U.S. adults aged 18 - 29 are ditching coffee for tea. If you know your employees or clients prefer tea, gifting them with the Insulated Coffee & Tea Tumbler will be a special reminder of your company's dedication. This stainless steel tumbler features a removable tea basket for use with loose leaf tea. The lid screws on and off with the push of a button on top of the leak proof cap. It features a double wall vacuum insulated construction to keep your hot liquids steaming for 5 hours and your cold liquids chilled for 15. Remember, the tea basket is removable, so this tumbler works for the coffee drinkers of the world as well.
4. Copper Vacuum Stainless Tumbler
I love the stylish look of tumblers that are shaped like a cup - and many American consumers do, too! In many major coffee chain locations, branded tumblers with lids are sold to consumers for home and everyday use. This personalized tumbler is made of stainless steel with a copper-plated inner wall to keep liquids hot for up to six hours and cold for 24.
This promotional insulated drinkware item is ideal for visual and design oriented companies because of its unique appearance. Your logo will appear in full color, and will really pop on the stainless steel backdrop.
5. Heavyweight Travel Mug
When blogging about drinkware styles, it'd be silly to leave out the heavyweight travel mug, which has the prominent feature of a built in handle on the side. Its leak-resistant lid has a sliding feature for ease of use. Made of stainless steel, your logo will be featured on satin-finished acrylic section. Keep this tumbler in mind for recipients that have a busy daily routine and will use this item as their go-to drinkware.
Promotional insulated drinkware items are perfect holiday gifts because they appeal to every user. Coffee and tea drinkers alike, the literal warmth of this holiday gift will brighten up your recipient's holiday season.
