Often, we are asked what products we recommend and water bottles / tumblers are no exception. Like many things, it will depend on what you want out of your water bottle / tumbler. Now, that may seem confusing, they both hold liquids, what other purpose could you possibly have? Let me explain.
For water bottles, do you want an opening that is large enough to fit ice because it is being used as a giveaway at a sporting event or gym and a nice cold ice water is just what you think people crave after a vigorous workout? Or, for a coffee tumbler, is this something that just sits on a desk, or is your user someone on the go who needs a top that won’t spill?
Now, do you see what I mean?
Rather than just listing our favorites (we’ll get to those), here are some things to consider when purchasing a water bottle and tumbler as a giveaway.
1. Who is your user?
2. Large or small opening?
3. Are you shipping these to people? If so, maybe something light weight.
4. What type of opening do you prefer: straw, flip lid, screw on, classic push pull cap, or something else?
5. For imprint: Is it important to have your logo or maybe a catchy caption with you logo secondary?
1. Who is your user?
2. Does it matter if the liquid stays hot for long periods of time?
3. Would you also like the tumbler to have the ability to also keep liquids cold?
4. Is a spill-proof lid / drinking spout important?
5. Is it dishwasher safe?
There are many features to consider, but the above questions are a great place to start.
As promised, here are a couple of our favorites and why we like them:16 oz. Double Wall 18/8 Stainless Steel Thermal Tumbler
Vacuum insulated and threaded 360 drink-thru easy-clean lid. This is perfect for a middle range priced tumbler. The twist 360 top allows you to drink from anywhere on the rim and screw down to close when not in use – best part is this does not leak when screwed down and keeps your coffee hot for hours.
16 oz. Contigo West Loop Double Wall Stainless Steel Tumbler
Vacuum insulated, easy-clean threaded lid with locking mechanism and patented AUTOSEAL push button. If you know, or have used Contigo products, you know the quality. If you have a bit more to spend on a tumbler, this is your best bet. Contigo is a great brand and the push button makes it easy to take a sip whenever you’re thirsty, but keeps all liquids inside when the button is not being pressed.
28 oz Bike Journey Bottle
Flip top cap. Molded from BPA Free HDPE – Recycled Code 2. FDA Compliant – Safe for food contact. Dishwasher safe on the top rack. This is a very resonably priced water bottle that has a nice large opening if you want ice in your water. The imprint size is great to attact attention and being dishwasher safe is always a plus. Also, this comes in a variety of colors which is always nice.
24 oz. Contigo Addison Bottle
Patented single wall (BPA-Free) Eastman Tritan (TM) copolyester bottle with AUTOSPOUT threaded lid, silicone spout, spout shield, one-touch push-button, and carrying handle. Not to push Contigo, but this is another great product by this brand. The push-button pop-up spout is easy to drink from and keeps liquids locked inside. This is a great product to giveaway because it’s pretty much a guarantee of free advertising when people tote this bottle around everywhere!
