Online and TV advertising are far from the only options to promote your business. Tumblers may be the right way to go due to their versatility, aesthetic, and usefulness, especially in these fast-paced times where almost everything is “to go.”
In a sea of options of promotional tumblers, it can be tricky to decide which to choose for your campaign.
People usually use them as gifts for clients and employees, as well as for promotions, sporting events, school teams, etc. You can choose from the insulated, plastic, and acrylic ones, and on top of that, there’s plenty of different styles. Each category is aimed at users with different needs, so all you need to do is figure out what works best for you.
This guide is here to make the decision easier, so let’s jump in!
Plastic and Stainless-Steel Tumblers
These tumblers combine two essential elements that almost any product should have — practicality and aesthetic. Stainless steel tumblers would ensure the temperature of the drink stays unchanged for hours. Meanwhile, plastic tumblers do the same while being lightweight.
As a rule, people appreciate presents, and when you put thought into it, the appreciation will be on another level. Gifting your clients with something both useful and beautiful reads success. Giving them to your employees to show appreciation for their work will make them feel valued. You can even go one step further and choose different colors for different departments!
The features and quality of these tumblers convey the message that you have high standards, which is something that resonates in the business environment.
Merits of Plastic and Stainless-Steel Tumblers
- Plastic and stainless-steel tumblers have sliding or rotating lids, which make them spill-proof, so your coffee will stay where it is
- They fit in the majority of cup holders in cars, which is another point for practicality
- Any tea or coffee aficionado will be grateful if they get one
Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumblers
Steel vacuum insulated tumblers, Boss tumbler included, are perfect for the daily commute, team building activities, and those who travel on business. The drink will remain hot for up to 8 and cold for up to 18 hours, while the slide lid with the rubber gasket will ensure that the contents stay inside.
Devoid of details, it’s bound to make your company’s logo stand out and be noticed, as sleepy commuters sip their coffee on a crowded train. Additionally, giving people something lasting and of high quality says much more about you than you can imagine.

The Midas 380ml Copper Vacuum Insulated Tumbler is the absolute winner when it comes to aesthetics. It’s amazing how such a simple design can attract so much attention.
But, let’s not judge the book by its (gorgeous!) cover. Spoiler alert: the inside is also awesome because the stainless steel will keep the temperature piping hot or freezing cold. The lid is spill-resistant and screw-on, and it also serves as a handle, making it easy to carry the tumbler around.

A Few Final Words
Gifting people outside of your family and friends circle can be a bit frustrating. If you’re having a hard time coming up with something that is both pretty and useful, consider gifts such as customised tumblers.
