Caffeine: I need it. You need it. We all need it.

Or, well, if you don’t, lucky you! But I know I can’t be the only one rushing around in the mornings trying to get the kids ready for school, all of our things packed up and in the car, only to realize as I’m rushing around my coffee has spilled on my shirt… ugh. Not to mention coffee mugs with lids that don’t stay on tight, or a little spout just won’t give you that caffeine goodness.

So, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best tumblers and to-go coffee mugs that we can find. And if you don’t drink coffee, then you can still use these awesome cups for ice water or your drink of choice.

Don’t fret: we are here to help you find the bad, the bougie, and the best coffee tumblers for all of us. Better even yet, most of these will come from Amazon – hello, Prime!

1.) The Winningest Cup is the Stanley Cup

This one holds a lot, fits in most cup holders and has a handle for easy carrying. It’s really intended for cold drinks, so fill it with ice coffee and carry it around all day. We can easily see why it’s a favorite on TikTok, college campuses and offices. About $45 on Amazon.

2) Reduce Hot1 Thermal Coffee Mug with Lid

This had me at 8 hours. This beauty fits in your cup holder, has a non-removable handle, and boasts a leak proof lid that allows for adjustable flow of your go go juice. And keeps it hot for 8 hours. Hello gorgeous, come to momma.

These are available in 20 or 24 oz and you can purchase this Hot1 tumbler from Amazon. For only $21.99, you might as well get one for each day of the week. Oh, and they are dishwasher safe!

3) BUZIO Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler

Sometimes we like it hot, sometimes we like it cold.  This one will give it to us both ways. You have a 24 hour window for this BUZIO tumbler to keep your coffee hot. We all know how busy we can get between work, kids, life, that we rarely actually get to drink our coffee when we pour it. This one saves us a trip to the microwave.

However, if cold brew is your jam, this one is the one for you. Not that your coffee will go 48 hours without being consumed, but if it did — it would still be icy cold in this thermal.

This one fits in all standard cup holders and has a removable lid for drinking, a straw if you are into coffee through a straw, and a loop to carry it with — aka, everything a girl could need. Available in 32 oz, you can purchase this one for $27.99 on Amazon.

4) Ello Magnet Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug

One handed open and close spout you say? I’ll take two.

While this looks unsuspecting, it will keep your energy brew hot for 5 hours and your cold brew cold for 24 hours. I’d say those are some solid numbers for us busy ladies. The lid is adjustable, making this perfect for our left handed friends, and the spill-proof makes it perfect for all of us. You can get yourself one (or two) of these from Amazon for $17.99

5) Hills & Valleys | Reusable Coffee Cup

This simple tumbler carries a big punch when it comes to function. A non-slip grip on the bottom means you can pop this baby on your dash while you are getting your little angels (or heathens, depending on the day) into the car without wondering if you are going to end up sitting in a puddle of hot coffee.  The cute pop up ring makes this easy to handle while also carrying your purse, shoes, dry cleaning, food, laptop, phone and all the other things we insist on carrying at once. Made from corn husks and recycled material, you can feel good about this environmentally conscious purchase. The maker, Hills & Valleys, is a family owned start up company, if that’s your kinda jam to support. Get yours from Amazon for $12.99

6) YETI Rambler

No real tumbler list is complete without a YETI, am I right? With their standard MagSlider Lid, you can be sure that you won’t be losing any drops of the precious gold that keeps us going. As with all YETIs, they are designed to fit in all cup holders which makes them perfect road trip companions. YETI doesn’t just give us hours to drink our drinks, it will keep your liquid hot or cold til the last drop, no matter when you finish. You can purchase these nuggets of coffee holding gold on Amazon for less than $30.

7) Contigo, Black Extreme Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug with Handle

When you can clip your coffee tumbler to whatever strap you are carrying and be confident that the 100% spill proof lid has your back, I’m all for it. The Contigo fits in your cup holder, it keeps your brew hot or cold, and it has a nifty pull-tab opening.  It’s unassuming yet everything you ever need. You can get yo-self one of these babies on Amazon for $20.99

8) Toddy XL 32OZ Insulated Coffee Mug

If you have ever had the pleasure of owning a Hopsulator slim-can cooler, you know that Brümate lives up to expectations. That slim little nugget keeps your seltzer cold as the moment you pulled it from the fridge. That being said, one can only think that this will do the same thing for your morning go go juice. The lid is adjustable to you can be left or right handed and it all works the same. Its 100% spill proof, has a leak proof seal, and the lid is magnetized to keep the tab back while you are drinking from it. With it s lifetime warranty, $34.99 seems a very reasonable price.

Also, I’d be lying just a tad if I didn’t tell you that I was sold on this because it also matches my phone case. Now that’s pretty rad. Choose from 25 different colors and you can have one to match your phone case too.


Battery Powered Coffee Tumbler

9) Ember Temperature Control Travel Mug 2

This might be the most bougie coffee mug I have ever come across. I never knew I needed a coffee tumbler I could control with my iPhone so badly. You can choose the exact temperature you prefer (between 120°F and 145°F) all by the touch of your finger or the click of your app. The battery lasts for 3 hours off of the charger, but the LED lights on the outside of it will help you keep track of the charge. It will even go to sleep on its own after 2 hours of no movement to save on the battery life.

It also has a 360-degree leak proof lid that allows you to drink from any side of the tumbler. To make note, you do have to wash this by hand (since it is, y’know, battery powered and all). A tumbler this advanced has the price tag to match at $179.95 but if you are into the latest and greatest techy things — this one’s for you. Get yours here.
