KeepCup Reusable Coffee Cup
This stylish sipper is made in the USA from soda-lime glass, which means it’s easily recyclable when you’re done with it eventually. You can also microwave it, and even though it’s glass, it’s lightweight enough to carry with you on your morning coffee run. Thankfully, the cork band keeps your hands safe from burning and the BPA free lid and plug are dishwasher safe.
Imagine the amazing power of a Yeti cooler — they’re the standard for fishermen and people who like the outdoors — but in the palm of your hand. This double-walled tumbler keeps your morning coffee hot well into the afternoon, and the genius magnet sliding lid comes apart when it’s time to throw it all in the dishwasher. It’s also the perfect size for most car cup holders when you’re driving through the great outdoors — or just, um, to the office.

Plus, this flask will keep your cup of joe hot for up to 6 hours and your cold brew chill for 24 hours (thanks to double-walled insulation and a stainless steel body). It also has a wide mouth opening so that you can gulp the good stuff and let the caffeine do its magic before your first morning meeting.

The lid spins off to reveal an opening that you can sip from at any angle, and the sleek design is totally museum-worthy.
Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug
No shame if you’re the coffee drinker who gets more coffee on their sleeve than in their mouth whenever you’re carrying a cup on the go. Thankfully, the spill proof lid on this reusable coffee canteen won’t let anything escape it — and it’s also slim enough to fit in a car cup holder, which means even the bumpiest of rides won’t threaten your morning brew. You can practically take this cup of coffee with you anywhere.
This attractive 18-ounce insulated tumbler comes in a ton of amazing shades and designs, but it’s not just a pretty face: it’s made from durable stainless steel and is triple-walled so that you’ll never get condensation on your hands. But also, did we mention that it’s p-r-e-e-e-e-e-t-t-y? Use this gorgeous and reusable coffee cup around the house and find one that matches your decor (yes, that’s a thing). Heads up, you have to purchase the lid separately.

This is the travel mug for when your work bag is already loaded with notebooks, an iPad, your laptop and a million random receipts from heaven-knows-where. Made out of super-light, leak-proof BPA free silicone, it collapses to just 2.5 inches thick, meaning you can tote it practically anywhere without adding bulk to your bag. And when your beverage needs a warm-up, it’s microwave safe. Hot tip: it also comes with a straw for when the iced coffee season hits.
