Coordinate-Engraved YETI Tumbler: Meaningful Location + Hardy Cup #Sponsored

A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone at Personalized Cart who offered me a product of my choice in exchange for an honest review.* She had a couple of suggestions, including jewelry and kitchenware. I knew exactly what I wanted when I saw they had Coordinate-Engraved YETI Tumbler (here).

So, there are two things I'll cover in this post: first, the process and quality of Personalized Cart and, second, the quality of the product that they personalized for this case the YETI tumbler. Sounds fair, right?

I have long wanted a YETI tumbler. And, in fact, when I saw that my husband had purchased one last month, I was envious. Then I realized that he purchased it as a gift for his dad. So, I opted to get this cup for Jake and hope that he shared it with me. 

Personalized Cart also offers the YETI tumbler with initials, with a sugar skull design, with a snowflake design. But I really wanted to get the coordinates of a meaningful location on the cup.

I considered Willemstad, Curaçao where he proposed; a house in Prunedale where we first kissed; the church where we were married. But, in the end, the coordinates I selected were of our friend's house in Monterey. It's where I first met Jake. 

The etching is perfect and shipping was fast! Once ordered, mine arrived in less than a week.

Okay, on to the cup itself. YETI, the brand, has become synonymous with durability and quality. But, while their entire line of goods from coolers to tumblers enjoys a stellar reputation, they are always infamous for being some of the most expensive. I wanted to see if the accolades are well-deserved. So, I put the tumbler through its paces compared to my other favorite insulated tumbler made by a different company.

Though I don't normally nurse a cup of tea or coffee for a full day's work, I wanted to see how long it would stay hot. So, I made two cups of tea and poured one into my other tumbler and one into the YETI. I put the lids on both and took them to work. Even at lunchtime - after 4 hours! - the YETI tea was still hot! And, at the end of the day - so, after 8 hours - it was still more than warm. That's pretty astounding.

I have to say: The YETI's reputation is well-deserved. Yes, it's expensive, but it's definitely a hardy, high-quality cup that's worth every penny of the $30 it costs. And I am thrilled to have one in my cupboard for those days when Jake doesn't take it to work. Then, it's all mine!
