Great Gift for Seniors: Tervis Tumblers

Shopping for holiday gifts can be challenging, especially when the recipient is a bit older (a.k.a. a senior citizen).  Over the next week, I’ll post gift ideas for seniors with a focus on ease of use, safety, age appropriateness and enjoyment.  Hope this makes holiday shopping a bit easier for all.


  • Tervis Drinkware can be used for hot or cold beverages.
  • They are safer than glass or ceramic cups since they won’t shatter into pieces if dropped.
  • When used for cold beverages, condensation doesn’t build up like traditional glass cups, which means no sloppy water ring on the table or slippery cup to hold.
  • When used for hot beverages, the tumbler gets cozy warm on the exterior (not scalding hot) making it easy to carry.
  • Tons of different styles and designs to choose from.
  • Dishwasher safe.


  • You can customize a design with a photo and message.
  • Consider the 8oz cup or the 16 oz mug, which are easier to carry and drink from for seniors.
  • Lids are a great accessory ($4) to keep beverages hot or cold longer and avoid spills.
  • When first drinking hot beverages be careful not to burn yourself.
  • For seniors who like cocktails, Tervis makes shaker lids and an ice bucket.
  • Check for special offers.
