Save & sip: 5 Stanley Cup dupes worth splurging on

Save your coin for the essentials

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / April 24 2024

To the untrained eye, a Stanley Cup is nothing more than a large, portable, beverage container, but the drink bottle alternative has somehow managed to enthral the globe nonetheless. 

The insulated travel-friendly cup rose to popularity on TikTok in response to app users' concern over disposable straws and the threat they posed to marine life. Anyone remember TikTok's 'save the turtles' era? We sure do. 

Investing in a reusable alternative to a traditional plastic straw became a must, emotional support water bottles became a need, and thus a generation's obsession with an insulated tumbler cup began. 

The Stanley Cup's price tag is not something we're obsessed however; the Stanley Cup Quencher H2.0 800ml ($70 from The Iconic) and the Stanley Cup Quencher H2.0 1.2L ($80 from The Iconic) both retail for more than $50 a pop. 

Considering the current state of affairs, (hello, we're in the middle of a cost of living crisis) dropping that much cash on a travel cup is not essential. 

So we've found Stanley Cup alternatives or dupes, if you will, if you're trying to save a cent or two where you can. Ahead, BEAUTYcrew's top Stanley Cup dupes...

3. Typo The Traveller Metal Tumbler, $39.99, Cotton On

Oasis Stainless Steel Double Wall Insulated 'Commuter' Travel Tumbler
from $30.56 at Kogan

This is the most similar dupe on the market for a Stanley Cup. It's made from the same materials as the cult-favourite cup and holds as much liquid. The key difference between the two is a Stanley cup promises to keep liquids cold for up to 48 hours, whereas this pick from Oasis will keep liquids chilled for up to 12 hours. It can also be used to keep the temperature of hot beverages for up to seven hours. 

Key features:

Double wall vacuum insulated stainless steel 1.2L cup
Keeps drinks cold for up to 12 hours / hot for up to 7 hours
Splash-proof, multifunctional lid with 3-point revolving dial.

Without a doubt the most aesthetically pleasing pick on this list, Aussie brand Typo's sleek take on the Stanley Cup can hold up to 1.2L of the hot or cold beverage of your choice.
