From cold, crisp mornings to finishing work when it’s dark outside, winter is here! The autumn and winter season sees a spike in drinkware in the promotional merchandise world and we’re not surprised! Who doesn’t enjoy sipping a hot beverage whilst you’re outside in the cold. Not to forget that it is award and Christmas season! Traditionally, winter is the time where businesses celebrate their success and show appreciation for their employees and customers. It is also a time where many of us celebrate Christmas and the new year - so it’s definitely champagne season, if we do say so ourself!
Here are some of our winter top picks:
The Americano range:
The Americano is our best selling travel mug. They come in a wide range of colour options (you can also choose what lid and colour you’d like!).
They come in a range of sizes: 250ml, 300ml, 350ml and you can choose from a variety of versions such as the recycled version which is produced from 100% recycled PP plastic with an eco spill proof lid made from PP also. They are fully recyclable and even come supplied in a 1000% compostable bag. A great option for those of us who are eco conscious.
Another new edition to the Americano range is the antimicrobial version. This double-walled insulated tumbler contains Biomaster antimicrobial technology. This provides protection against the growth of harmful micro-organisms on the surface of your mug. This is effective for the lifetime of the product and doesn’t affect the recyclability of the mug. This product is very topical during the pandemic and would make a thoughtful gift cause it’ll help the user stay warm during the cold months and keep those germs at bay.
The Universal Mug:
An alternative to the Americano travel mugs, the Universal can be personalised with a full colour wrap print, allowing high quality photo images to be used. You can choose between a gloss or matte finish, the colour of the lid and handle as well as the lid choice.
Mysa 410 ml double-walled ceramic tumbler:
For a more contemporary, modern choice, the Mysa tumbler could be a good option for you. These definitely have that retail looking aesthetic. They come in 5 colourways and can fit under most coffee makers. If you have a bigger logo, these have a decent screenround print area but they can also be engraved. They come supplied in individual presentation boxes.
Photo Eevo-Therm Bottle:
Just because it’s not hot out, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t drink less water! The Photo Eevo-Therm Bottle is a fab choice for keeping your drink cold on your (work from home!) desk. They can keep liquids cold for up to a whopping 24 hours and also keep liquids hot for 12 hours.
These bottles are dye sublimated, meaning you can brand these with photographic images with a stunning full colour print. These come supplied in individual boxes, however there is an option to supply these in a printed box or presentation tube for an extra cost.
Swiss Peak vacuum bottle with mini true wireless earbuds:
These bottles would make for an excellent Christmas gift as they are a two-in-one product! These sleek, leak proof bottles have double wall vacuum which will keep your hot drinks hot for 5 hours and cold drinks cold for 15 hours! The lid contains mini true wireless earbuds which is a handy feature for online meetings as well as outside of work activities such as doing work outs!
There are a few branding options for these but to keep these looking sleek, we would recommend laser engraving them, giving the product a real premium feel.
We can offer individual personalisation on these so if you are looking to really impress the receiver, why not go the extra mile and get your staff or customer’s names on each bottle!
Custom sleeves and gift wrapping is also available on this product at an additional cost.
Due to the pandemic, we have seen celebrations and events turn virtual! One of our most recent orders was for a client celebrating Oktoberfest at home! For this order we branded a tankard with the company’s logo and included three bottles of beer that the customer chose, had them presented in a gift box and sent out to multiple addresses for their virtual event. We think this is an excellent idea to celebrate the holiday season as well as showing your top customers and employees your appreciation for them. Our factory are really good at sourcing alcohol of your choice to be placed with branded drinkware.
We have over 40 different styles of Tankards to choose from. From the classic cut glass tankard to modern straight sided pint glasses, find the perfect tankard for your drink and occasion in our range. Choose between engraving or printing your logo, club crest or personal message onto these stunning glasses to create a unique gift or trophy.
0.57ltr Large Mancunian Tankard:
One of our cheaper options, the Mancunian Tankard is great for everyday use. Not only can it be personalised with sandblast engraving, it can also be decorated with an etch effect, colour or silver print.
0.45ltr Lead Crystal Barrel Panel Tankard:
This gorgeous tankard is definitely a show shopper! This traditional 0.45ltr lead crystal barrel panel tankard is embellished with an elegant diamond and wedge cut pattern leaving a space in which you can engrave with a personal message or your logo. Not only can it be on a every day basis but this would also look amazing displayed like an award!
Champagne and wine glasses:
Who doesn’t love champagne! Treat your top customers or staff members to a lovely bottle of bubbly with a personalised crystal glass.
Dartington Crystal Rachael Champagne Flute:
This elegant champagne flute is perfect to personalise thanks to its large engraving area. Perfect for premium (virtual for now!) events and celebrating a good year, these flutes would be a superb gift. If you choose to purchase in a pair, they can be supplied in a Dartington Crystal gift box.
390ml Infinity Red Wine Glass:
The Infinity wine glass combines both quality and style. Its attractive shape concentrates the aroma of the wine which improves the drinking experience. Again, this glass has a big engraving area so you can brand these with a thank you message to commemorate an event.
50ml Round Hot Shot Tot Glass:
The Round Hot Shot glass makes for a perfect giveaway gift, again like all of the glassware, we can still brand these with any logo, crest or working. These can be supplied individually with prestation box or as part of a set.
380ml Infinity Whisky Tumbler:
Thanks to its wide base tulip design, this glass funnels the aroma of your favourite whisky straight to your nose, improving the taste.
The shape also helps you to swirl the drink adding oxygen to the drink, enhancing its flavour.
Please note that these are only a small portion of the glassware we can provide so if you are looking for something different or another style, let us know your ideas and we can find the perfect product for you.
Most of these beautiful glassware products can be supplied in a luxurious presentation box filled with a blue satin lining. As mentioned earlier in the blog, why not add the cherry on top and provide a drink of your choice to be supplied in the box with your chosen glassware?
Here at M-four, we truly believe we go above and beyond for our customers. If you would like us to source some goodies to place inside of your drinkware, such as coffee/hot chocolate/tea sachets, or perhaps some biscuits and sweets, we are more than happy to fulfil these for you in house. We can also offer delivery to individual addresses should you wish to surprise the receiver at home (please note these may be at an additional cost).
Whether you want to keep your customers cosy outside with a branded travel mug or perhaps you are a homeworker and want to treat yourself and colleagues to a treat on Friday evening, want to thank someone for their business or your work Christmas do is going virtual, these products would all be greatly appreciated!
