Looking for an easy and thoughtful DIY gift idea?

Consider gifting items inside an insulated tumbler for a practical and creative DIY gift idea! The best part is you can customize the items inside to create a really personalized tumbler gift. These can be small items that fit inside the cups and even gift cards if desired.

This idea can work for any holiday or occasion. These gifts are appropriate for Christmas, birthdays, teachers, neighbors, hostess gifts, etc. Plus they can be done at any price point utilizing affordable items from Dollar Tree, the grocery store, drugstores, or even big-box retailers.

Who wouldn’t love to receive a quality tumbler gift?

Our Hip2save team loves these Ozark Trail brand tumblers from Walmart! They’re high quality, inexpensive, and keep drinks cold (or warm) for HOURS! In fact, I once tested my much more expensive YETI vs Ozark Trail in this previous post, and the Ozark performed just as well!

These tumblers ROCK!

You can choose a larger 32 oz. size tumbler or a smaller 22 oz. tumbler, and both are perfect for hot coffee and cold drinks. They really are such great quality and make a perfect gift even by themselves, however, it’s fun to add some goodies inside to create a really fun, personalized gift!


Here are 5 EASY themes to inspire your tumbler gift ideas!


1. For the Unicorn Lover

Unicorns are still super popular right now! I love this idea of filling a tumbler with small unicorn-related goodies, readily available at lots of retailers and at different price points. This unicorn tumbler gift can be fun for a tween or anyone who enjoys unicorns!

Please note, while these cute items in the images shown were found in-store at Walmart, you can shop for similar items online at various retailers.

2. For the Coffee Lover

Coffee is LIFE! ☕️ Fill a tumbler with K-cups, coffee creamers, mini-flavored syrups, or anything else to feed a coffee obsession! I even threw in a milk frother to make the perfect DIY latte!

5. For the Hot Chocolate Fan

A hot chocolate-themed tumbler would be a perfect smaller-dollar gift item during the holidays. Just pick up a smaller 22 oz. tumbler and fill it with items to make hot chocolate! It’d be fun to throw in some Christmas-related chocolates and candies, too. All of these goodies are actually from Dollar Tree, so you don’t have to spend a lot!

I wrapped my tumblers with all the goodies inside using clear cellophane wrap. It adds such a nice-looking presentation! Tie the top with a ribbon, secure a gift tag, and your gift is ready to go!
