The Must-Know Drinkware Trends For 2018
From mixed-materials, to retail-style packaging, here are the new drinkware designs and innovations you need to know:
1. Distinctive Look: Mixed Materials
By adding cork, bamboo and silicone elements to tumblers sport bottles, we’re creating pieces that demand attention and elevate brands. It’s the little unexpected details that create something special.
2. High-Performance: Copper Vacuum Insulation
In retail, high-performance copper vacuum insulated drinkware is enjoying immense popularity. From campus to the boardroom – it’s everywhere. What makes them so universally-loved? First, they perform – keeping beverages hot for up to 12 hours and cold up to 48 hours. Second, they’re practical. They’re meant to be used every day.
3. First Impressions Matter: Retail Packaging & Gift Sets
Someone wise once said that presentation is everything. New retail packaging options and gift sets offer more than a way to recognize a special occasion or important relationship – they’re also an opportunity to showcase your brand in a whole new way.
4. No Compromise: Budget-Friendly Styles That Are Trendy AND Perform
You don’t have to sacrifice style or performance when selecting drinkware that fits your budget. You don’t have to spend a lot to get something on-trend.
5. Dual-Function: Technology Meets Drinkware
Ever fantasized about a water bottle with a built in Bluetooth speaker, or maybe a travel mug that grinds and brews coffee? Dreams come true – these innovative new pieces have the wow-factor to impress and set a brand apart from the pack.
