Thermos is a solid brand and one that I am a huge fan of. Thermos products are well-constructed, nice to look at, and they last through lots of falls and tumbles.
In fact, we recently gave away almost our entire "coffee mug" and tumbler collection because they just couldn't compare to our new Thermos Element 5 set. This classy black and silver collection (with yellow trim) is tough and durable, and is perfect for keeping food and beverages hot or cold for extended periods of time.
Take, for example, the Thermos Element 5 Hydration Bottle. It keeps drinks cold for 24 hours and features a leak-proof drink lid and an integrated stainless steel carry loop for convenient attaching to a backpack. This beats a plastic water bottle by A LOT. Not only is it reusable (better for the environment!), it also will keep your drink cold instead of turning lukewarm after just a bit of exposure to the sun.
The Thermos Element 5 Food Jar keeps food hot for 7 hours or cold for 9 hours. This little jar is perfect for packing blueberries or apple slices on a hot day, or soup on a cold day. Save money and eat healthier on trips by packing your own snacks (instead of stopping at Circle K to pick up processed items)!
Another great option for cold weather is the Thermos Element 5 Travel Tumbler. Perfect for toting coffee, hot chocolate, or tea to work or to your next ski vacation. The tumbler keeps beverages warm for 6 hours or cold for 8 hours.
All of the products in the Thermos Element 5 collection come with a Thermos Lifetime Performance Guarantee. Yes, I said Lifetime! Imagine the money you would save if you invested in Thermos mugs and tumblers instead of those cheap-o plastic ones on the aisle at Target or the grocery store (that only last a month or two before turning grimy and gross...).
The Thermos Element 5 Collection can be found at a variety of outdoor specialty stores and retail between $20-40 (it seems pricey, but they last a lifetime!). This would make an awesome Father's Day gift!
