We have picked out our top 9 welcome gifts for new hires that you can color print or laser engrave your company logo and their name! 

Simple Modern Trek Tumbler

The 40 oz travel tumblers are taking over insulated drinkware with Stanley Quencher dupes showing up in other premium brands. The Simple Modern Trek Tumbler has been compared to the quencher and found to be even more leakproof. The insulated stainless steel will keep your drinks ice cold for over 24 hours and the splash proof lid really does keep every drop inside. The quarter turn lid and ergonomic handle allows you to drink right or left handed comfortably. The cupholder friendly base means you can take this tumbler with you anywhere, from your morning commute to weekend errands.

YETI Rambler 20oz

YETI is the brand that will not only impress your new employee but make them feel appreciated. This tumbler is an easy win and great gift idea because the quality lives up to its name. The 18/8 stainless steel construction is puncture and rust resistant and the lid resists shattering. Any company logo looks pristine laser engraved into the YETI Rambler 20oz and will most likely be by their side for their morning coffee and afternoon hydration. This year at Diamondback Branding we were able to drop our MOQ down from 48 to 12, making this an even more accessible option!

Corkcicle 22oz Mug

A classic coffee mug crafted into a sleek and corporate cup, the Corkcicle 22oz Mug will live on their desk and be their go-to caffeine pick me up. The triple insulated stainless steel keeps coffee and tea hot for up to 3 hours. The non-slip silicone base and shatter-proof lid means even on the craziest of work days, not a drop will spill. They can quickly grab their mug with the ergonomic handle and easy-grip sides and go from meeting to meeting.

Brumate Toddy XL

This versatile, fully leakproof, triple insulated stainless steel travel mug checks off all the boxes. The cupholder friendly, non-slip base and ergonomic handle makes traveling easy for your employee’s morning commute or work trips. The double-threaded design allows for left or right handed drinking so you can take out the guesswork when picking out this employee gift. The Brumate Toddy XL will keep all 32oz of their drinks hot for 6 hours and ice cold for 24, so they can enjoy their morning coffee, afternoon iced tea, and every sip in between.

Hydro Flask 24oz Standard Mouth Bottle

Hydro Flask is a crowd favorite and is just about everyone’s favorite water bottle. The premium 18/8 stainless steel and tempshield double-wall vacuum insulation will keep their water ice cold all through their work day. The honeycomb insulated cap is BPA free, leakproof when closed and is an additional defense against room temp water and melted ice. These are also dishwasher safe so they can have one less thing to clean when they get home, which means bonus points for making their lives a little easier outside of the office!

Fellow Carter 20 oz Carry Tumbler


A sleek and modern tumbler that balances true to taste ceramic interior with high performance double-wall vacuum insulated exterior, the Fellow Carter 20oz Carry Tumbler will be their daily go-to commuter tumbler. The drinkable thin lip allows for easier sipping and their choice of morning coffee and afternoon hydration will stay hot for 12 hours and ice cold for 24. From hopping on the subway to getting to their next meeting, the spill resistant screw top lid includes a durable metal handle so they can easily grab and go.

RTIC Everyday 6 Can Cooler

Giving your new employees their own cooler that can double as a lunchbox is a multi-purpose gift they will get a ton of use from. The roomy, closed foam insulated main compartment will keep their lunch, or a happy hour six pack, cold and fresh all day. The RTIC Everyday Can Coolers include multiple pockets for storing their belongings like napkins, silverware, and keys. Each cooler has a detachable bottle opener for weekday sparkling waters and weekend beers. When you’re done, simply collapse your cooler into the lid for low-profile storage that can fit easily in a drawer or under the car seat. 

OtterBox Mobile Charge Kit

For those that have employees that are on the road often, providing them their own portable charger shows that you are investing in their daily work and the time and effort that goes into travel days. These batteries include a 3-in-1 cable for USB-A to Micro-USB with USB-C and lightning adapters so you don't have to worry about knowing what kind of phone they have. The ultra slim build makes this perfect for travel and fitting into tight pockets. Plus you can pair this with the OtterBox Mobile Device Care Kit so their phone will be powered up and clean!

Brumate Hopsulator TRiO 3-in-1 Can Holder

Skip out on those cheap neoprene can coozies that they can get from anywhere and go with a can holder that will be the last one they ever need. The Brumate Hopsulator TRiO set can do it all in one package; fit a 16 oz can in the body, use the lid and turn the holder into leakproof tumbler, or use the freezable adaptor for 12 oz cans. Drinks will stay ice cold and bubbly 20x longer than the standard can coolers. Gifting the Brumate Hopsulator Trio Can Holder is not only thoughtful but also extremely useful for their day-to-day. From lunchtime sodas and sparkling waters to weekend keggers and backyard BBQ’s, they can take this trio with them everywhere.
