Whether it's an outing with friends, going to concerts, taking walks, going for drives, school/lectures or just in their rooms, it's most likely that your teens will want to bring a drink with them. What better way than have a stylish tumbler or mug that they can fill with their favourite beverage, hot or cold, to take with them.
As your teens grow more mindful of the environment and do their part in reducing plastic, metal and glass bottles, mugs and tumblers have taken over. Bringing their own bottle or tumbler has become a norm.
With all the new technology behind new age tumblers, it's actually really quite convenient and makes sense to have their own and bring it along where ever they go. Most insulated tumblers prevent condensation, are leak or spill proof and can keep beverages hot/cold for a really long time which is perfect, especially when they're on the move, out and about for long hours.
The bottom line is that insulated tumblers and mugs are a quintessential piece of every teen's life. They should be functional and stylish at the same time. The best thing about insulated tumblers or mugs - they don't leave annoying watermark rings on the furniture!
I have a passion for tumblers and water bottles, and below are a few of my favourites which are functional, durable and extremely good looking suitable for teen boys and girls.

01 The Hydro Flask All Around Tumbler
The Hydro Flask has gained quite a cult following over the recent years, and rightly so.
It has rave reviews on how well it retains the temperature of hot and cold beverages with the ability to keep your hot beverages hot for up to 6 hours and cold drinks for up to 24 hours. This is no surprise considering that it is made of its signature double-walled vacuum insulation Tempshield Technology. The coloured outer layer has a soft touch and non-slip finish that makes the tumbler feel extremely comfortable in your hands. Being made out of stainless steel also means that the All Around Tumbler is pretty much unbreakable.
The closeable press lid is sturdy and keeps splashes to a minimum. The mouth opening is big enough for comfortable sipping, and they can add a reusable straw without much fuss. Furthermore, its sleek, narrow design also allows it to fit in most car cup holders.
When your teens are done with their tumbler for the day, they can just stick it in the dishwasher for an easy clean-up.
Not shy of options, this tumbler comes in 4 different sizes and 9 vibrant colours
so take your pick!
Price. $27.95 on Amazon for the 20-ounce.
02 Swig Life Travel Mug
This 18-ounce travel mug comes in over 40 different beautiful designs and colours. With so many designs to choose from, why not get one for yourself! Most importantly, it's perfect for your teen's everyday use, whether in or out of the classroom.
Perfect for ice cold and piping hot drinks, this tumbler's double-walled, vacuum-sealed, copper plated insulation with professional-grade stainless steel keeps hot beverages hot for more than 3 hours and cold beverages cold for more than 9 hours.
Its wide opening allows for ice cubes without much hassle and easy hand cleaning. It is dishwasher friendly, and you can detach the slider lid and pop that into the dishwasher for thorough cleaning.
Not only does it have a handle which makes them easier to carry around, but they are also car cup holder friendly. Furthermore, its silicone base keeps the mug from easily tipping over and from making too much noise when you're setting them down.
03 S'well Traveller
How good-looking is the S'well lineup, especially their S'well Traveller here?
Whether to hold smoothies, juices, coffee, tea, ice or no ice, this triple-layered, vacuum-insulated construction-designed beauty keeps beverages cold for up to 26 hours or hot for up to 11 hours with their exclusive Therma-S’well Technology. How amazing is that?!
It's sweatproof and leakproof, so your teen won't have to worry when they're tossing it around and especially in their bag.
The mouth is wide enough for ice cubes, stirring and easy cleaning. Your teens can also choose to change the lid from a twist cap that it comes with to a mug- type cap called the S’well Stainless Steel Commuter Lid which can be purchased separately.
The S'well Traveller comes in 4 sizes and 30 colours - plenty of options to choose from!
Price. $34.99 on Amazon for the 16-ounce.
04 YETI Rambler
The design itself makes it look sturdy and will survive any condition. The Rambler is made of durable stainless steel with double-wall vacuum insulation, which makes it sweatproof. Their well-known Magslide Lid uses the power of magnets to keep beverages locked in and hot or cold for longer. With that said, the lid is near -- though not entirely -- leakproof but pops off for easy cleaning.
Its durability can withstand being dropped and accidents, so ideal for any kind of outdoor adventure. It also features Duracoat, which is a coat of colour that prevents any peeling or fading over time. Also, it fits perfectly in car cup holders.
The YETI Rambler is 20 oz and fits in standard-sized cup holders, and comes in 33 vivid colours to choose from! What's more? It can be thrown in the dishwasher for easy cleaning!

And not just that, they are well made too! This travel mug has a heat-lock double wall vacuum stainless steel exterior which helps hot beverages retain heat for up to 12 hours and keeps cold drinks cold for 24 hours. This travel mug has a wide opening giving you the experience of drinking from a mug, so no sipping out of little holes to shock you when your coffee is piping hot! The interior is made out of ceramic, so you can rest assure that your beverages will not take on the taste of metal.
The best thing is that you can flip it upside down or throw it in your bag or in the backside seat of your car, and it will not spill. It's completely leakproof!
Choose from 8 beautiful colours, and it does come in two sizes, 12 and 16 oz. Your teens will love this one.
