Like it or not, winter is coming, so it's time to stock up on those promotional travel mugs! As August draws to an end, the evenings will start to get darker and days will get shorter leaving most of us wanting to hibernate through to spring again! Unfortunately, this isn't possible and we have to simply drink lots of hot drinks and power through instead!
Of course, we still have autumn to get through before we even make it to winter, winter doesn't even officially start until December! Even so, the days are going to start getting colder from the end of September meaning you need to find a way to keep warm! Drinking hot drinks is one way of keeping warmer in the winter. First of all, holding a hot drink is going to mean you are slightly warmer anyway, then there is the hotness of the drink itself.
What many people don't realise is that it isn't actually the hot drinks which keep people warm, but instead the caffeine inside it. Caffeine releases blood flow to the skin, which tends to make you feel warmer as a result.
Of course, hot drinks can also help colds. A tried and tested remedy when you have a cold is to drink hot honey and lemon. This is a natural detoxifier which is proven to get rid of harmful substances in the body. Winter is the prime time to catch a cold which can make you feel really run down, so it's worth noting how effective hot drinks can be.
As well as the positive influence they have on colds and bacteria, research has shown one hot drink a day can help to reduce the chances of developing a number of different illnesses and diseases. One example of this is the positive effect tea can have on your bone density. A cup of tea has been proven to strengthen your bones and older women who regularly consume tea and 60% less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis.
These reasons alone show what a good idea it is to invest in promotional mugs this winter for your companies promotional merchandise.

The point of travel mugs is to travel, meaning that your branding is likely to be seen in lots of different places.
