These 16-ounce clear tumblers will keep cold drinks cold while looking good at the same time. The shape is classic, with just enough embellishment to make them look a little bit special, and this is a 4-pack, so you’ve got enough glasses for the family. These are made in the USA by a company that’s been manufacturing here since 1946 and can be used for hot drinks as well as cold. Unlike some insulated glasses, these can be washed in the dishwasher, so cleaning is easy when the party is over. If hot drinks are on the menu, these can be microwaved to heat or reheat the beverage, and they can also be used in the freezer, so you can freeze portions of fruit for your punch in each glass, then take them out as needed and add punch and fizz to complete the drink.
Take your coffee to go with this large 20-ounce lidded tumbler. The proprietary MagSlider uses magnets to lock down your drink, so it won’t accidentally spill. When you get home, you can just toss the tumbler in the dishwasher for fuss-free cleaning. The exterior DuraCoat color won’t discolor or degrade from washing and use, and it helps provide a secure gripping surface, so your coffee won’t slip from your hands while you juggle the car keys.
If you’re buying for several family members, these come in a variety of colors, so Mom won’t grab Dad’s mocha by mistake. Made from 18/8 stainless steel, this durable double-walled tumbler can take a beating and still deliver a hot drink, and the shape is designed so it will fit in standard cup holders in your car. Not just for hot drinks, you can refill this with your afternoon iced tea, and it will keep the chill just as well as the heat.
If the name Corkcicle sounds familiar, it’s probably from the icicle-like wine chillers they make. No icicles here, though, just a 12-ounce triple-insulated stemless wine glass, so you can sip your wine in style while keeping it cool. The silicone bottom helps prevent sliding and spilling, even when the party gets a little rambunctious, and the sides are designed to make the glass easier to hold onto, whether you’re lounging and sipping, or taking your drink to the dance floor. This glass comes in a variety of fun colors, including a pearlescent “Unicorn Magic” that seems perfect for a wine and cheese evening. This comes with a spill-resistant lid that will help keep the wine from sloshing out while it also keeps insects out when the party is in the backyard. Not just for wine, you can use this glass for any beverage, hot or cold. This should be hand washed to protect the vacuum seal. For easier cleaning, the silicone ring is removable.
When it’s time for cocktails, sometimes a short, squat glass is most appropriate. This 12-ounce tumbler has that rocks-glass shape while also providing excellent insulation so you can sip your Manhattan or your bourbon on the rocks on a warm night, without worrying about the glass getting slick and sweaty. The palm trees and hammock on the glass add a festive note that makes them perfect for outdoor parties, or just for cozy nights at home while you imagine the beach in the distance. The fun design also makes them great for kids, sipping juice or soda while the adults choose larger tumblers for themselves. While the look is certainly cool, these glasses can also be used for hot drinks, and they’re dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. For even more versatility, these are safe for microwave use and for the freezer.
Don’t leave the kids out when the adults are using insulated tumblers. These are sized for kids and hold 8 1/2 ounces, so the little ones won’t have to handle a big cup, and drinks won’t be wasted by filling a large cup with more than they need. Just like many adult versions, this is made from durable 18/8 stainless steel that can handle being banged around in play, dropped from the deck, and buried in the sandbox. The lid is made from durable clear acrylic, so you can see what’s inside without removing the lid. The slider lets kids use the included silicone straw that’s bite resistant, yet tooth-friendly, or use your own favorite straws. Not just for kids, this would be great for adults who want to bring along a small beverage. This should be hand washed.
Do you prefer mugs to glasses? Are steins better than goblets? No doubt you’ll appreciate this 30-ounce tumbler with its large handle. When you don’t want a handle, it’s simple to remove, then simply slide it back on again. For more versatility, this includes two different lids, so you can use the leakproof lid when you’re carrying a cold drink, then switch to the sliding lid for hot drinks. Also included is a stainless steel straw and a straw cleaning brush. Made from 18/8 steel and available with a variety of colors and designs, including wood grain and camouflage, this is designed to fit into most cup holders. This tumbler is certainly made for travel, whether you’re headed to work or on vacation. When you’re done with your travels, this should be washed by hand.
