Why A Tumbler Might Be A Great Gift This Year (And Our 3 Favorite)

If you are looking for a great branded gift item for your team or your customers, drinkware is a great category to consider. Why? There are plenty of reasons, but here are a few.

First, no sizing. While apparel is a wonderful item to give your team (and you should) you need to make sure you have the right sizes, or the gift is a waste. Functionality. Everyone uses drinkware. And if you get your team or your best customers a NICE piece of drinkware, they will use yours. It’s Personal. Anything you are putting in your mouth is personal! So tying your brand to something legitimately personal ties them more emotionally to you.

But what piece of drinkware?

At Hasseman Marketing, many of our team lean lean toward the Vacuum Tumbler. A vacuum tumbler (often a Yeti style mug) is double walled and insulated to keep your coffee hot and your ice cold for hours. With that, they are functional regardless of what kind of drink your recipient enjoys. Want to sip on a coffee all day, these work great! And if you like to enjoy a cold beverage by the pool all day, these have you covered as well.

But which Vacuum Tumbler? We asked our team!

Kelly Bowe Says:  “The Viking Tumbler  is always my go to tumbler.  That’s the one I always bought for the hospital and everyone always loved it. The price was right and the quality was top notch.”

Jeff Wickerham Says:  “Celeste: I love this tumbler! It is vacuum sealed, but unlike most vacuum sealed tumblers, it is ceramic. The Celeste has the traditional coffee cup feel but keeps my coffee hot, so it is the best of both worlds!”

Kirby Hasseman Says:  “I love the Urban Peak tumblers.  They have great performance as a tumbler, and the full color decoration is amazing.  Oh…and you can personalize it so everyone makes sure they have the right tumbler.”  (Yes…I just quoted myself there).

Regardless of what style you like the best, during this time we have a great opportunity to show our team and our customers how much we really appreciate it. Let’s not waste it. Please let us know if we can help. Remember, we have drop ship programs that can help you send your branded merchandise directly to their door!
