There’s a reason drinkware is frequently listed among the top promotional products. Everyone uses drinkware, whether it’s a coffee cup at home or a travel mug for the morning commute. Branded drinkware gifts are easy and fun, plus you don’t have to worry about sizing! But with so many options, finding the right one for your needs can be a challenge.

We checked in with Mae, the resident drinkware expert in 4imprint’s Merchandising Department, to find out her recommendations on drinkware trends and hot sellers to help get you started.


Classic mugs for value and durability

Classic ceramic mugs are always popular in the office. And even with more people working from home, that adage still rings true. “Now, with more people working from home, they are even more popular—especially these cozy, trendy styles,” Mae said.

Affordable, durable cups with your logo or message make great business giveaways and can be used to promote a variety of events, sales achievements, safety goals and more. Put a spin on the classic by choosing the trendy ombre finish of the Rush Coffee Mug. Or go for something more rustic with the Tahoe Tea and Coffee Mug with Lid. It has a unique, natural finish on the lower half and includes a wooden push-on lid. Or try something eye-catching, like the Opal Coffee Mug (#161740), which has a silicone sleeve instead of a handle.


Camp drinkware for the latest trend

Camp-style mugs are everywhere! As Mae puts it: “This trend just keeps on growing. The outdoors is now more popular than ever and what does everyone think of when they think of outdoors? Camping.” Enamelware or lookalike ceramic mugs, like the Campfire Ceramic Mug, lend a vintage look to your logo. For an upscale spin, try the MiiR Vacuum Camp Cup.


Cork and bamboo accents for a natural vibe

“A very popular trend in the kitchenware category has now carried over to drinkware: accents of natural materials like cork and bamboo,” Mae said.

The Beck Coffee Mug with Cork Base has an understated, organic appeal while the Yowie Vacuum Tumbler with Bamboo Lid and Straw is an elegant blend of rustic and polished.


Odd sizes for the perfect fit

Sometimes you need something small to hit the spot. Other times, you need a big thirst-quencher. Luckily, there’s drinkware options to fit every need. Mae suggests these “will fit whatever thirst that you throw at them. They are the perfect stocking stuffers so you will be ready for the next outdoor event—weather permitting, of course.”  The Koozie® Giant Collapsible Neoprene Can Kooler fits 24-ounce tall cans and folds flat for easy storage. The Sherpa Slim Vacuum Travel Tumbler and Insulator serves double-duty as a tumbler or an insulator for thinner cans (just pop off the lid). Your employees, customers and prospects will drink to this branded drinkware gift.


Classy, campy and everything in between

Make a lasting impression on clients, prospects and employees with these branded drinkware gifts. Whether they work in an office or enjoy the outdoors, they’ll love these functional giveaways.
