Promo With A Cup Of Joe

If you’re looking for a sure thing, it’s hard to beat coffee. An eye-popping 3 in 4 Americans drink coffee every day, and most of them are having two or more cups per day.


Coffee is a great way to start a conversation, even a metaphorical one between brand and consumer, and there are plenty of ways to build strong messaging around grabbing a cup of coffee with the new contact or sharing the buzz and energy around a new product or an offering.

Having a cup of coffee can also be a self-care ritual. Tapping into what people value for themselves can make an especially strong emotional marketing piece, and outfitting recipients for those me moments can include everything from coffee itself to drinkware that helps keep your brand in happily caffeinated hands.


A great mug or tumbler also works for any other beverage – people can use it for coffee, of course, but if they don’t love coffee, they can use it for hot tea, hot chocolate and cold beverages as well.


New, eco-friendly tumblers made from recycled coffee grounds and other materials bring coffee into the product itself for a fun meta-moment, and from a sustainability standpoint, it’s nice to know that there are additional ways for repurposed materials to be used in the making of the products.

Coffee Tumbler

The 14-oz. Nayad Infinity Tumbler features a removable outer sleeve made of recycled coffee grounds and recycled plastic for a rich coffee color, and the coppery peek-a-boo inner tumbler is made of insulated stainless steel to keep beverages hot for up to 10 hours and cold for up to 20 hours.

And don’t forget the humble ceramic mug. They are back in the mix, big time, thanks to more people working from home and not needing a travel mug like they used to. But it’s not your father’s “World’s Best Dad” mug anymore. When it comes to higher-end drinkware, think brand names and sleek, modern design.
