The 5 Best Water Bottles Around

Because drinking water is the new thing. 

Obviously, we are no strangers to talking water and all of it's benefits. Sometimes you need something cute and functional to up the intake and encourage you to sip. Yesterday, I left my water bottle behind and had a little bit of a panic, because I recognize having adequate water levels in my body can up my mental retention, help me sleep better, and keep off those lingering pounds. Inspired by my new loss, I've scoured the web to find fun water bottles so you won't have to on your next search.

Check out my five favorite water bottles below! 

The classic Camelbak in charcoal.
Perfect for displaying stickers
& excellent for hiking.


One of the trendiest bottles around, keeps your cold cold and hot hot. Really nice. 

Lifefactory has perfect glass water bottles for life's crazy moments -- silicone helps it not to shatter and it's pretty enough to sit on your desk and not make you cringe. 

The Kleen Kanteen is an awesome stainless-steel water bottle. Great for camping (you can boil water in it).

The Hydroflask. As amazing as the name sounds.

After I started writing this article, I was gifted a black Swell bottle and am loving it.
