Merry and Mindful: Grateful to Celebrate the Season
Merry and Mindful: Grateful to Celebrate the Season
11.01.23 As the holidays sneak up on busy schedules, it’s important to prioritize the people in our lives. Infuse the season with gratitude by being mindful of your closest relationships — friends, family, and yourself (yes, you!). Acknowledge the ways you’ve all grown by reflecting on past seasons. And take more moments to celebrate all the changes and wins. When we set an intention to gather with friends and make time to appreciate the beauty and warmth of our festivities, we turn up the joy. Friends: Gilded Gatherings Being together inspires thoughtful gestures, making the holidays an ideal time to nurture friendships, especially the ones we don’t get to see as often as we’d like. So, don’t wait for an invitation to catch up. This is a great opportunity for you to flex those host skills. Explore the fun and delight that comes with the art of gathering. With appetizers and baked goods spread in a beautiful array, stories and beverages flow as you relive memories and make plans to form even deeper connections. Mix things up The Stanley Adventure Happy Hour Cocktail Shaker Set will turn you into a hosting pro. With a removable reamer that juices your citrus and strains your cocktail directly into your cup, you’ve got an all-in-one bar setup that’s ready to delight all of your cordially invited guests. Make it festive Once your drink is shaken, pour into the Stanley Winterscape Adventure Stacking Pints. Glittering and gilded, these pints provide modern winter elegance. Double-wall vacuum insulation keeps your favorite beverage or brew the perfect temperature for hours of storytelling and celebrating. Family: Cherished Traditions Seasonal traditions often start with family gatherings. Maybe it’s making your own ornaments around the table, or gathering for a day of sledding. Finding new traditions or crafting a spin on one you already love can be just as meaningful. There is something magical about carrying these moments ahead each year, even more than the traditions themselves. It’s not just the nostalgia, but the time we spend together that builds excitement for the years to come. Focus on what matters The Stanley Winterscape Perfect-Brew Pour Over Set has a modern finish and gilded details inspired by nature to create a festive cup for your favorite coffee. The matching Camp Mug’s insulated stainless steel and the Tritan™ Drink-Thru Lid keeps your pour over nice and hot to ensure you have more time for laughter, gift-wrapping and family fun.   Make new memories The Stanley Winterscape Classic Bottle has an insulated lid that doubles as a cup for drinking and sharing, making it easy to toss in your bag for an afternoon of tree trimming with your family. Self: Feed Your Spirit This is a time to focus on yourself, too! The season is festive, but it’s easy to spread ourselves too thin when we don’t reserve some of that energy. Remember how important it is to give and receive care, which can be as simple as sleeping in on a Saturday. Find ways to bring yourself joy and nurture your personal wellbeing. This can be hydration goals paired with journal writing, inviting a friend on your daily walk, or a soothing bath with your favorite essential oils. Check in, be mindful and make sure you feed your own spirit this season. Refill your cup The Stanley Legendary Canteen in Rose Quartz features an anchored cap that will never go missing and a removeable strap to provide lightweight and hands-free hydration — an ideal companion for a day of snowshoeing, a winter market stroll or spending some quality time by the fire. Hydrate the soul The Stanley Deco Collection Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler is just-right with its gloss finish and bold, gilded accents that add a touch of glamour, whether you’re off to a winter cabin retreat or a spa day with your friends. Gratitude and Reflection Turning up the joy means celebrating the magic of every tradition, new and old. Bring your family and friends together, craft new traditions and build stronger connections. Getting into the holiday spirit can be a chance to reflect on the past year, as well as an opportunity to celebrate the growth of those around you. Be sure to raise your Stanley of choice, fill it to the brim and enjoy every moment together. Tell us about your holiday traditions so we can celebrate together!

One for you, or design a gift for a loved one that’s just as unique as they are. Let’s get started. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO START CREATING AND GIFTING STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR STANLEY–PICK YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT AND COLOR Explore stanley1913.com and look for products with the Customize badge, or go right to Stanley Create.

Choose to personalize your product one of four ways: your own uploaded text, monogram, one of our new holiday graphics from the graphics collection, or a custom upload. Step 2: KEEP IT SIMPLE — ADD TEXT OR A MONOGRAM For text, pick a font and add your name, your pet’s name, your team name, Greek house, a favorite saying, or whatever speaks to you.

Stanley Anniversary
Stanley Anniversary
CELEBRATING 110 YEARS OF INNOVATIVE SPIRIT WITH STANLEY 09.05.23 Here at Stanley, we’re excited to celebrate and honor our 110th anniversary: 110 years of innovation, and 110 years of helping to build a more sustainable, less disposable life and world. It all started in 1913, when William Stanley, Jr., a physicist and engineer, created the first insulated all-steel vacuum bottle. His invention changed the way we keep our hots hot and our colds cold forever, and kicked off an incredible journey. While Stanley products have been loved by many and passed down over generations, we are inventing new technologies, materials and finishes so that every collection, limited editions and all, give you their best performance in every color imaginable.   THE EVOLUTION OF INNOVATION William Stanley, Jr. faced a very real problem back in 1913. How to keep his coffee hot all day at work. His invention of double-wall vacuum insulated steel was only the beginning. Since then, Stanley has taken a century’s worth of experience to expertly craft the iconic Hammertone Green finish, pour spout lids for easier filling and drinking, featherweight bottles and four-layer thermal technology that can keep a drink iced for 6 full days! Have you ever mentioned Stanley to a grandparent? Often, the durability of the Stanley Classic Bottle is the first thing to come to mind — stories passed down that include our products aiding early generations of medics and nurses by transporting medicine. And of course, the millions of mornings spent fishing, at campsites, and commuting to office desks around the world. While innovating new products at Stanley, we’ve been admiring your creative spirit. We love seeing Stanleys in the wild, holding everything from popsicles to pints of ice cream, and how you decorate your Quencher, too.   CONNECTING GENERATIONS Many Stanleys have been in the family for years, handed down over the years from grandparents, moms, dads, friends, sisters and more. Across categories, and across generations, Stanley means something to the people who own them, holding memories as well as they do your favorite drinks and more. Today Stanley is a household name, from vibrant colorways to unique finishes that are made to mix and match your everyday style. The Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler might be a newer addition but it is, in every way, part of our journey. With special collaborations and limited editions in colors that pop and shine, moments of celebration are reflected in each new collection.   THE FUTURE While we’re proud of our past, we’re excited to step into a new era. We’re leading the way in sustainability and reusability, introducing recycled stainless steel designs and committing to use recycled stainless steel in at least 50 percent of our products by 2025. At Stanley, the future has your name on it. Stanley Create invites you to bring your imagination to customize your favorite Stanley bottles, tumblers, and barware. So you can make your Stanley as one of a kind as you are. And we’ve got more surprises coming, including new colorways and artist collaborations.   HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, STANLEY You can tell we’re excited for what tomorrow holds, even as we’re celebrating a milestone anniversary. We look forward to bringing you the same kind of innovation and quality of our first 110 years. It all started with William Stanley, Jr., and we’re proud to take his legacy into the future. Cheers to the next 110. Share your own Stanley stories, photos and memories with us and tag us on Instagram @stanley_brand.
Spotlight on COVL
Spotlight on COVL
HANGING WITH COVL AND THE NEW OUTSIDERS COLLECTION IN MIAMI 05.16.23 Say hello to COVL—a Miami-native and multidisciplinary artist. Inspired by her community, surroundings, and experiences, COVL works across mediums and sees just about anything as a potential canvas. Her use of color and movement is rooted in her vibrant Puerto Rican culture. And COVL isn’t just a name—it stands for Craft, Onward, Versatility and Lifestyle, the four things the artist works to bring to everything she does, showing that you don’t have to be one thing, you can be many. With her connection to color and culture, COVL and the backdrop of the vibrant city of Miami made the perfect subject for Stanley’s “New Outsiders” color collection of the summer. Like COVL’s art, the collection is original and authentic, playful and fluid—featuring patterns filled with motion and colors inspired by saturated blues, greens, citrons and sunsets. In other words, “New Outsiders” is right at home in Miami and in the hands of COVL and her community of creators. Stanley joined COVL and friends Naty, Blaire and Aldhair in Miami to talk about her art, influences, growing up there near the ocean and how it all shapes her creativity today. She shared some of her favorite local spots, from Adhair’s art studio to a neighborhood basketball court that has become another unusual canvas for her work. And, of course, the irresistible beaches of Miami where she comes to relax and be inspired. “Creativity for me has always meant that it's problem solving at its core. And if you're able to take an idea from just a really rough sketch all the way to the final execution, I think that itself is creativity.” “My favorite color depends on my mood. Right now, I'm in a green mood. A color that brings a lot of abundance, a color that really exemplifies nature. … I encapsulate or utilize a lot of warm tones like poppy reds, oranges, pinks, because I want people to feel embraced in the work that I do.” “The biggest thing for me is recognizing that to remain creative, I have to also give myself breaks and give myself space to live a life, to breathe, and just to simply be.” “COVL represents the four facets of what my work brings to the table and that's: Craft, Onward, Versatility, and Lifestyle.” “COVL represents the four facets of what my work brings to the table and that's: Craft, Onward, Versatility, and Lifestyle.” “COVL represents the four facets of what my work brings to the table and that's: Craft, Onward, Versatility, and Lifestyle.” “Growing up on Pennsylvania Avenue here in Miami and having access to the ocean has always influenced me to be more fluid, to be more adaptable, and being able to flex my creative muscles.” “I'm just seeing the culture here and the community of creators and artists is something that continuously inspires me because it shows me that our canvas can be anything.” Learn more about COVL here and check out Stanley’s New Outsiders Collection to inspire your summer.

Hydration Tips and Five Tasty Snack Ideas for Children Heading Back to School
Hydration Tips and Five Tasty Snack Ideas for Children Heading Back to School
Guest post by: Onyi Azih @sincerelyonyi 09.26.22 As your child settles back into school, it's important to keep them hydrated and properly fueled for their day ahead. Drinking water helps improve memory, mood and attention. But how do you make sure your child drinks enough water when they're busy with homework and sports practice? That's where Stanley comes in. The IceFlow Flip Straw Water Bottle is perfect for keeping kids, including my son, hydrated during the school day. This is especially important in places like Texas, which is where we call home. The bottle is small enough to fit in any backpack, but big enough for them to enjoy their favorite drink without having to stop and refill the bottle. The ergonomic design makes it easy for your child to hold onto, even if they're not used to carrying around a water bottle! Its built-in flip straw makes sipping simple so your child can seamlessly drink out of their bottle before class starts, while on the playground or after practice ends. The straw snaps shut when not in use, so there's no need to worry about spills or leaks. Given this one is constructed with durable stainless steel, you can rest assured that their water bottle can withstand the test of childhood rough-housing. That's where Stanley comes in.
