Move aside Stanley! Here are five alternative cups we’re loving

From Chilly’s to Air Up and now Stanley who would have thought we would ever become so obsessed with water bottles?

Office workers sigh when they see one of their Gen Z colleagues once again trying to balance a Stanley cup among a multitude of other items before watching it tumble on the ground with an almighty bang, the culprit whispering a few quick apologies before scurrying off to their desk and assessing the damage they just made to their prized possession.

You might roll your eyes and question: Why don’t they just use a normal water bottle? Well, the answer is simple, isn’t it? who wants to carry a boring old-fashioned plastic bottle, when you can lug this beast of a bottle around the office for the day.

Jokes aside, the Stanley’s popularity is no doubt down to practically every celeb, influencer, and everyone in between possessing one of these beautifully designed bottles (we won’t mention the leaking) in an array of gorgeous shades.

The Stanley Tumbler promises to keep your drinks cold for up to 11 hours, or two days if iced, using its vacuum insulation. The cup also boasts a 90 per cent stainless steel ratio and is dishwasher safe. It fits into MOST car cup holders (Fiat 500 drivers note that capitalised most).

This quencher will cost you €49.95, which some of us have been seasoned to believe is the standard price for an insulated bottle! (Would you tell your granny you just spent €50 on a cup?).

So, if you too want to look cool sipping from a beautiful and slightly more reasonably priced water bottle, keep on reading.

BlendnGo 1.2L Hydration Essential Tumbler – €39.99

The BlendnGo Tumblr is produced by the Irish company BlendnGo. Very similar to the Stanley the 40oz bottle promises to keep drinks cold for 11 hours and hot for seven hours. It comes in two shades: cream and fog grey. The company originally gained popularity with its portable blenders.

ChillFire 40oz Tumbler – €30.40

The ChillFire Tumblr is a leak-proof and insulated bottle that can hold hot and cold drinks. Like the Stanley, it is a car cup holder and dishwasher friendly and has a reusable straw and unique leak-proof attachments. The tumbler is available on Amazon and comes in a variety of colours.

bottlebottle 40oz Tumbler with Straw and Lid – €27.97

The bottlebottle tumbler is certainly the most colourful of the dupes on this list. The tumbler is eco-friendly and made of stainless steel. The bottle keeps your drink cold all day, however, it doesn’t specify how many hours it will last like the previous tumblers on this list.

Filter White Flask – €30.95

Former Love Island star, Molly Mae, must have loved her Stanley Cup so much that she created her own version. The Filter website claims: “This capsule piece is the perfect accessory to keep you hydrated and stylish all at the same time”.

The Flask is made from stainless steel, is dishwasher safe, and has a 1.2L capacity. The flask also comes in two shades: Brown and white.

Simple Modern 40oz Tumbler with Handle and Straw Lid – €31.61

The Simple Modern tumbler is very similar to the other tumblers on this list, however, one advantage to this Stanley dupe is that it is said to be more leak-resistant than the Stanley itself. Being nearly €20 cheaper and having many pretty shades including bubblegum pink, who are we to argue?

If after all this, you are still adamant about joining the Stanley cult (we don’t blame you) Brown Thomas has currently started stocking the Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler 1.18L and Kilkenny Design the Ice Flow Flip Straw Tumbler I 0.89L.
