If you have a hard time remembering to bring your reusable cup when you make a coffee run, I have some advice: Buy a travel coffee mug that you absolutely love, one that you actually look forward to using.
It’s taken me years to learn this. I’ve owned quite a few reusable cups in my day, but most were made of plastic and given to me as swag; they failed, in Kondo-speak, to spark joy. Last year, though, I spotted glass versions at my local coffee spot that were adorable. (Yes, adorable travel coffee mugs.) But they were expensive. And didn’t I already have a shelf full of reusable coffee cups? I resisted buying them.
In the meantime, I continued to not use the cups I already had.
Months later, I finally gave in and purchased the glass travel tumbler—and, lo and behold, it became far easier to remember to toss it into my bag before heading out the door.
Here are eight coffee tumblers and mugs that do a good job of keeping hot liquids contained—and look great while doing it. (Note that while each is shown in just one size, most come in multiple sizes.)
