best water bottles to keep you hydrated

Half a gallon. That’s how much water you should be drinking every day. So what do you do? Fill up your water bottle with the best intentions at 9 am, only to let it sit there, hardly touched, until 3 pm, when obviously, it’s coffee time. We can’t blame you. Room temperature tap isn’t exactly inspiring. What you need is a bottle that will demand your attention. Here, design-minded water bottles that make throwing back agua easier (and dress up your desk).

Brimma Leak Proof Fruit Infuser Water Bottle, $21.97 on Amazon

Amazon

Add cucumber, lemon, raspberries or mint to the infuser part of the bottle, and boom! You’ve got spa water.See It

Elixir2Go Crystal Elixir Bottle on Amazon, $44.99 on Amazon

Elixir gemstone water bottle

Amazon

Sure, the claims that this water bottle can infuse your plain old H20 with crystal healing powers is, uh, theoretical at best. But who cares when it looks this pretty? Also, know that the “gemstone-pod” is separated by glass from the rest of your water so if you do dig crystals (no judgement!) you can swap in your own favorites.See It

HYDY Vacuum Insulated Thermal Water Bottle, $45 on Amazon

Amazon

We think of this stunner as the designer athleisure of water bottles. It comes in 20 colors (though we love the pink gold selection) and keeps your water ice-cold for 24 hours, which is ideal for those of you who shun the room temperature stuff.See It

Reduce WaterWeek Classic Reusable Water Bottles, $20 on Amazon

Amazon

This set, which includes a fridge tray, is designed to help you easily have a clean bottle of H20 on hand every day of the week. It’s also an economical way to stock up for the family, or have one water bottle in the car, at the office, and at home.See It

SH Tritan Water Bottle, $9.99 on Amazon

Amazon

We don’t think this has been scientifically proven, but we always drink more when there’s a straw involved. This is a cross between a minimalist tumbler and a water bottle, so you won’t feel like you’re drinking from a sippy cup.See It

Pure Copper Lotus Water Bottle, $29.90 on Amazon

Amazon

Water bottle or design object? (Admit it, it really makes up for your office-issue stapler!) It’s also ethically made in India, and copper, in Ayurvedic tradition, is known to purify water.See It

S’well Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle in Birds of Paradise, $35 on Amazon

Amazon

We love S’well because the double wall means they never sweat and this Supreme-ish red one even has a matching cap. We say, if you’re thinking about going bold with color, commit.See It
