Rubbermaid is taking a different product innovation tack for a different kind of Thanksgiving.

The consumer goods company is positioning its newest Brilliance Glass portable food storage containers — historically a staple at the large family gatherings being discouraged this year — as a way to bring someone their favorite dish as a gift.

"We all know this year's Thanksgiving is going to be different, but that doesn't mean it has to be anything less than the best experience," said Kris Malkoski, CEO, food business unit at Rubbermaid parent Newell Brands. "With the launch of Brilliance Glass containers, we can still give thanks and gift our loved ones our best meals in their best presentations — a premium gift that puts the giving back in Thanksgiving."

Playing off the gifting theme, as well as the pandemic-prompted e-commerce surge, Rubbermaid will give a free container to anyone who purchases a Brilliance Glass product online at from now through Thanksgiving.

Newell Brands, the No. 64 consumer goods company, also counts such brands as Paper Mate, Sharpie, Coleman, Oster and Expo within its portfolio.
