Why Are Travel Mugs So Popular?
If you go to a trade show or convention, you will see a lot of companies that are giving out small ticket items like promotional pens, candies, key chains, or notepads, but when it comes to something that has a lot more use for people on a daily basis, like thermal mugs, you will see a line of people waiting to get their hands on one. Almost all kinds of mugs are always popular and it seems that no matter how many of them people have, they always have a need for another one.
Why the Coffee thermos Mug?
If you go back to the “old days”, which were those days before we all paid a fortune for a cup of fancy coffee at a coffee shop, people pretty much had a cup of coffee at home in the morning and then maybe a cup of coffee or tea at work when they get there. Obviously, times have changed and it seems that we are all a little picker not only about the type of coffee drinks that we choose, but we also prefer to have a little more of it.
Travel mugs are ideal for people who drink coffee or tea (or any beverage, really), as they allow they to have a drink handy for a longer period of time without having to constantly warm it up.
How Do They Work?
Some travel mugs are made from metal and they are able to keep in warmth (or cold) by using a thick layer of insulation between two layers of metal. There are also plastic insulated mugs that do the same thing. These can be cheaper though they often don’t wash up quite as well as the metal ones and in both cases you need to be careful about putting them in the dishwasher.
What Size Should You Get?
Mugs work in a variety of ways and the kind you choose will likely depend on the budget that you have and the customers that you will be handing these out to. First of all, you should consider the size of the cup which will often make the difference between the cup is used or not. Generally speaking, people like custom mugs that are a little bit larger since that allows them to sip on one drink for a longer period of time.
Another consideration that you will want to keep in mind is the circumference of the bottom of the mug. A lot of people like to drive to work with a thermal promotional glassware in their vehicle and if the mug is too big and won’t fit in their car, then it won’t get the amount of use that you want.
Is This a Good Gift To Give?
If you are thinking of giving out mugs at a convention, trade show, or other type of event, this is one gift that will be used on a regular basis often for years to come. Plus the fact that it can be a personalised mugs, you can put the company’s logo or some thoughts that you want. So, although they can be more expensive than other items that you might hand out, you will definitely get your money’s worth out of them.
There is also something to be said for buying higher quality thermal mugs since people will actually cherish these and be sure to use them day after day, which is obviously your primary purpose for giving them to them. When you buy a high quality mug, you can expect that many people will keep them for years, either on their desk or at home, and will enjoy their hot beverages out of them long after they can even remember where they came from.
