The Makers of Our Favorite Collapsible Containers Launched a Giftable Set You’ll Want for the Holidays
It doesn’t matter if you’ve got 1 or 10 names on your holiday shopping list — the best gifts are ones that people will actually use and won’t end up stuffed into a drawer or cabinet. Sadly, though, finding a gift that’s useful and wallet-friendly is no easy feat. If you’ve struggled with this yourself, I’ve got good news this holiday season: Stojo just launched a two-piece bundle that’s not only affordable, but literally the opposite of a throwaway gift. Their Milk & Cookies bundle includes a 16-ounce cup and a 24-ounce box, both of which are made from food-grade, reusable silicone that’s fully collapsible, making them perfect for on-the-go sipping and snacking.
If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s the fact that we have to eat and drink, so the Stojo bundle would cover everyone on your list, whether you’re shopping for a teacher, dogwalker, sibling, or Santa himself. And, of course, you don’t need to stop at using it for milk and cookies. The set can hold a smoothie and protein bites, coffee and oatmeal, or wine and chips for a tailgate. You get the idea! The pieces can go just about anywhere, and have a dishwasher-safe design that makes them easy to maintain.
Stojo’s highly packable products are intended to fit together like a puzzle, and have a seamless design that allows them to collapse completely like an accordion. The 16-ounce cup comes with a heat sleeve, a twist-on lid with a hinging mouth tab, and a straw, all of which unfold into the cup’s sturdy body. The cup weighs 7 ounces and collapses down to just two inches, allowing you to fit it neatly in a bag or pocket. Now that most coffee shops (including Starbucks), are once again accepting reusable cups, the Stojo would make a much more sustainable swap for disposable cups. The cup has a heatproof design that allows it to hold frozen or piping hot drinks, so it can transition with the seasons and go from carrying iced coffee to hot tea. Its tapered design will fit in a standard car cupholder, and can also fit snugly into a stroller or folding chair cupholder.
The 24-ounce box has a similar collapsible design, and features a leak-proof lid with four clasps for keeping contents sealed. Unlike a lot of plastic containers and single-use baggies, Stojo’s box is microwave safe, making it ideal for bringing lunch to the office that you want to reheat, or for bringing hot dishes on the go. The 6.5-inch square box measures just 1.2 inches in height when collapsed, giving it a space-saving design that can be stored flat in a drawer or on its side in a cabinet.
Whether or not you’re shopping for someone who’s concerned about the environment, Stojo’s line of earth-conscious food storage products are an excellent alternative to single-use cups and plastic packaging or baggies. Plus, I don’t know about you, but giving a two-piece gift feels very intentional and makes an impact. You can pick up a Milk & Cookies bundle here, and, while you’re at it , why not gift one to yourself?!
