Stainless steel tumblers are all the rage for keeping cold drinks frosty and hot ones toasty. The only catch is that they can be pricey, with the 30-ounce version of Yeti's wildly popular Rambler tumbler retailing for $39.99. Forty bucks is a lot to pay for a tumbler, especially when buying the lid separately will set you back another five dollars or so. 

Luckily, there's a better option out there for the budget-conscious. RTIC's super popular 30 oz. Tumbler offers similar stainless steel, double-wall construction, and it promises to keep ice cold for up to 24 hours or hot drinks warm for six hours. Better yet, it's just $11.99 on Amazon. While the RTIC 30 oz. Tumbler is easier on the wallet than its Yeti counterpart, it doesn't sacrifice performance. The tumblers have racked up a 4.6-star rating across 6,700 Amazon reviews, so if you're looking for that perfect stocking stuffer for the beverage-enjoyer in your life. And if you want to sweeten the deal with some easy sipping, you can pick up a set of four stainless-steel straws with a cleaning brush for just seven dollars more. 

Buy at Amazon: RTIC 30 oz. Tumbler for $11.99 (list price $59.95)
