Be Inspired to Drink More Water with an Elegant Tumbler

Made in the U.S.A., these gorgeous, sturdy double-walled, insulated tumblers keep things  hot or cold, and ice-cubes intact for hours. Tervis products are called "tumblers" for good reason: they can be dropped on most surfaces without breaking. The lid, sometimes included with a tumbler, fits securely; its open-and-close aperture holds a  straw in-place.                                             People are absolutely wild about Tervis, and I hear they have a store in Vegas on the Boulevard.  Tervis cups or tumblers are guaranteed for life. They don't get scratched like other double-walled glasses, and if you drop them on the floor, the layers and rims don't crack. Drinking from Tervis is a smooth, elegant experience, one that will guarantee you get your daily dose of H20. ~~M-J de M., 2017
