After designing for the gift industry for close to 20 years (wow, I am dating myself...LOL), I still get excited when I see products produced with designs I have created. I was happy to purchase a couple of these cups to send out to my mom and mother-in-law from Tervis. I haven't bought their products before and I have to say, when these arrived, I was impressed with their high quality. You can keep drinks cold or warm for a long time. Tervis has lots of cute designs and a bunch that you can personalize. I may have to get a couple for myself. And I think they are affordable and nice gifts to give. I may keep that in mind for kids' teachers.
