Tervis Tumbler Review and Giveaway!

As One Artsy Mama has grown over the past two years, I’ve started to get an increasing number of requests from individuals and companies who want me to tell you about their products/businesses/websites, etc.  Some of them are really fun and exciting things I believe in, so I happily share them with you and often get to offer you giveaways and discounts I think you’ll enjoy.  Others aren’t a good match for what we do here at One Artsy Mama, and so I pass on those {you can thank me later}.  But I recently started thinking that instead of always waiting to be approached by the next company, it might be fun to think of some things I really love already and make the first move to see if I could offer you some giveaways for some of my favorite products!  And guess what?  Sometimes it does!  
So, today, I am super excited to bring you a review and giveaway from one of my favorite companies:
Tervis has been making fabulous and fun insulated drinkware since 1946.  With a variety of sizes, styles, accessories, and designs, there’s a Tervis that’s just right for everyone!  You can choose from 10, 12, 16, and 24 oz tumbler sizes, mugs, and even new water bottles.  Plus, there are accessories to personalize your drinkware like colorful travel lids, shaker tops, straws, and handles.

Two years ago, my friend April asked us to stop in the Tervis store while we were in Myrtle Beach to pick up tumblers for her children and nieces.  I had never heard of the company before.  When we got in the store, all of us were totally overwhelmed by the huge variety of choices.  There were patterned tumblers, floral tumblers, tumblers with sports team logos and beloved characters, and more!  We were supposed to be buying four 10 oz tumblers for April’s family {they’re the perfect size for kiddos}.  We left with, ahem, six tumblers.
You see, it wasn’t really my fault.  Little Crafter started it.  He saw this 10 oz Lightning McQueen one that was, of course, right at his eye level {well played, Tervis!} and immediately wanted it.  After all, if we were buying one for his friend Logan, shouldn’t he have one too?   And weren’t we trying to transition him from a sippy cup to a “big boy” cup?  No surprise, this one came home with us.

As we were standing in line to pay, I kept staring longingly at a pretty cherry blossom one that caught my own eye.  April had told me they were guaranteed for life and that she used hers every day…and LC was getting one…and it was vacation, after all!  Shouldn’t I treat myself to one too?  And so I did.
Tervis Tumbler
Truth be told, I bought my first one because it was pretty.  And because I am, apparently, an impulse buyer. But it wasn’t long before I started to realize how superior my Tervis actually was to any other travel mug/cup I’d ever owned.  It wasn’t too much later when I asked for my second one, to use when the first was in the dishwasher.   
Here are some of the things that make these tumblers so crazy-fabulous:

*They keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot.
I use a Tervis every single day for my iced chai to sip on while I’m blogging from 2-4 PM.  It’s just as cold at 4 as it was when I poured it.
* They are dishwasher safe!
Hallelujah.  I can’t tell you how many non-dishwasher safe travel mugs I’ve owned and not used because I’m too lazy to hand wash them.
* They reduce condensation.
Which means no sweaty glasses leaving rings all over your furniture or messing up your handmade coasters.
* They come with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
Seriously!  You can read about it here.
* You can personalize them.
For $5, you can add a name, a monogram, or other text to any tumbler that’s either plain or has a patch style design.  As you’ll see in a minute!
* They’re virtually unbreakable!
Parents with little ones, I’m talking to you.  Your kid can drop it, throw it, sit on it, and maybe even try to run over it with a tricycle and this thing isn’t going to break.  Ask me how I know.  *ahem*
So technically, I guess I didn’t really need a new tumbler to review because we already owned eight of them.  But Tervis was fabulous enough to send me this one so that I could tell you first hand how fun it is to get one that’s got your name {or blog name, in my case} on it!  Here it is…I feel like a rock star!
How fun is that?!  I was kind of torn as far as what to choose, because there are so many designs I like.  They even have a “CRAFT” one.  But these flip flops on the beach with shells just called to me!  And the 80’s child in me couldn’t resist the neon colors…it’s true.  Don’t judge.  It’s called the Neon Flip Flop.  It’s the first tangible non-business card thing I’ve had with my blog name on it.  And that makes me really really excited.
Here it is, all filled up with my iced chai so I had plenty of energy to write my posts this afternoon.  I can tell you I’m going to be using this one most often on an everyday basis, and it’s totally coming with me this September to Bloggy Conference.  {Did I mention I’m going to be speaking?!}  
And so, my new tumbler has joined the ranks of the others.  I told you we had quite a collection.  The ones across the front are mine.  Hubby’s are a different Ravens one, the Superbowl one just like mine, and a personalized one from a company he works with.  LC’s are Lightning McQueen and the golf balls.
Hubby and I literally drink out of nothing but our tumblers unless they’re all dirty at the same time, which doesn’t happen too often.  Seriously.  I love these things.  Ours are all the 16 oz size, except for one of LC’s, because I find that to be the right size to hold the amount we typically drink.  Yes, I did get a free one for review {Thank you, thank you to my wonderful new friend Lori at Tervis!} but we bought the other eight with our own…or my mom’s…money!  Hehe.  Grandmas are wonderful things.
Today, I’m excited to give you the opportunity to win your own Tervis tumbler.  The winner will get to choose from a great list of designs in either the 16 or 24 oz size.  Rafflecopter will walk you through the process; good luck!!
