    1. A Brita bottle with a filter right inside so you can always enjoy a crisp, clean sip, no matter how iffy the tap water is wherever you are.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a water bottle that would help me drink more water, reduce waste, save money (by not having to buy bottled water), and still be filtered. I had another Brita water bottle, but it was wider and more cumbersome to carry around. I saw this particular one on Instagram and decided to try it. I love it. The flip top is cool and keeps the straw from being exposed to germs. And it's slender enough to fit in car cup holder and in backpacks, totes, bags, etc."—A. Rogers

    Price: $19.79+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    2. A Hydro Flask because look, sometimes we must admit that the teens are right about things, and this water bottle is one of those times.

    Promising review: "Expensive yes. Worth it? Yes! I own more than five of these in different colors and sizes. I have purchased several as gifts. I always hear, 'I wanted to buy one for myself but I didn’t want to spend the money.' And then they complain about the crappy cheaper one they bought. And now they love this one!!! Well, duh. Just comes down to that old saying: you get what you pay for. I use them for work, the gym, yard work, camping, hiking, the beach....basically everywhere."—#honest

    Price: $41.21+ (available in two sizes and 13 colors)

    3. A classic Nalgene that just happens to have been my water bottle of choice for at least the past decade — these are truly workhorses that will never fail you.

    Promising review: "I've used my wide mouthed Nalgene for EIGHT years, every day at every job I've had. We were inseparable. All the lunches we had together, the late nights, early mornings, fears of bosses, laughing at co-workers... ah the joys we had together. I didn't even treat it that well, dropping it on concrete, down stairs, throwing it in my car, and not a single leak. One time I threw it in my car without the lid on all the way, and it reminded me gently with spilled water that I needed to tighten the lid. I've left it behind almost everywhere, but we always found each other. Until one work meeting, left it in the conference room. I'm guessing someone grew quite jealous of our affection, and swiped it! NOO! Truly an end of an era. There really was a connection here. Well, 8 years of daily use later is a good enough review for me to come back and buy the same water bottle. :)"—amznbuyer

    Price: $11.99+ (available in 38 colors)

    4. A squeezable water bottle perfect for Serious Athletes or people who just want to ~look~ like serious athletes.

    Promising review: "I used to be an athlete and we carried these things everywhere and all the time so that we can stay hydrated. The squeeze makes it easy to drink and this is an updated version, so now the mouth won't get dirty as it's submerged and hidden from the outside world. I did a squeeze test to see if it would leak and so far so good. Granted, I just got this, so we'll see how it holds up. I didn't have leak issues with these in the past. I think price could be better and saw cheaper ones at department stores, but this is a slightly different style. It's kind of shiny/sparkly. Ready to stay hydrated!" —GI

    Price: $4.97+ (available in two sizes)

    5. A ~fancy~ glass water bottle that'll work whether you're eco conscious, nervous about chemicals, or just want to have a good aesthetic.

    Promising review: "I was really impressed with the quality of this water bottle! It came with a tool to clean the inside of the bottle which is really convenient. The size is perfect to drink during the work day and stay hydrated. Seller was responsive and followed up on my order. Highly recommended." —KellyS89

    Price: $17.99 (available in 10 colors)

    6. A CamelBak bottle with one of the most satisfying straws in existence to chew on, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Promising review: "Let’s be real for a second... I used to literally NEVER drink water. Not kidding, I would go four days without water. My body was used to living in a state of dehydration until I became an adult and would get headaches all the time. I’ve had a few Hydro Flasks but when I put ice in it was too cold to drink and I hated unscrewing the lid. With this straw lid, the plastic bottle, and the size— I DRINK WATER NOW. Like four to five of these a day. Obviously it doesn’t keep your water super cold but I drink it better at room temp because I have sensitive teeth. It’s light weight to carry and easy to fill. The lid has a little handle to hold onto. I will never go back to expensive other bottles!! Easy to clean but a little tedious, but don’t let that deter you!"—Natalie Hackmann

    Price: $11.69+ (available in three sizes and 21 colors)

    7. A glowing, Bluetooth-enabled water bottle that'll track your water intake, remind you when to drink, and then clean your entire house, and walk the dog. Okay, not those last two things, but this is still a pretty genius invention.

    The glowing water bottle on a table

    Promising review: "A friend of mine had talked about how much she loves this bottle, so I decided to get one for myself. I know I never drink enough water, but if I have it tracked or a goal set for me, I suddenly am motivated to hit that goal. I bought my husband one, so we could compete together. Then we bought five more as gifts for relatives and friends.

    It keeps your drinks very cold. I fill mine from a water cooler, and it will stay cold for several hours (though within an hour or two I have to refill it, because I drank it already). The app is user friendly, and allows you to add your friends and family and compete for streaks and rank, which makes it fun. The rechargeable battery has been lasting about 10–12 days (takes about two hours to charge), depending on if I'm keeping up with my water intake, and I sync my intake to my phone regularly throughout the day."—Maria Z

    Price: $59.99+ (available in two sizes and 10 colors)

    8. A collapsible bottle so you can save some space in your bag when you're not using it. No more big clunky bottle taking up all the room in there!

    Promising review: "My fiancé bought this for me because I’ve been working out and drinking a lot more water at work. And it’s perfect! It doesn’t leak, it’s durable. And when I’m done drinking, I just collapse the bottle and put it in my bag and I’m not hauling around a big huge water bottle." —April

    Price: $11.99 (available in four colors)

    9. A half-gallon water bottle that'll motivate you to get those eight glasses a day with ease.

    A person holding the water bottle

    Promising review: "I was going to wait a while to see if the time/motivational quotes on the side of this bottle really did anything but it's been a few days and I already see a change. So first thing, the sayings are extremely corny... If you care more about staying hydrated than your water bottle telling you "Keep Going!" at 10 a.m., you should most definitely buy this. This bottle is soo pretty in the color that I got. The straw makes it extremely easy to drink. I have been drinking two of these a day without a struggle while typically drinking even a half-gallon would take me the whole time. The time stamps make it easy to keep track where you need to be at what time so you're not left chugging the bottle at 9 p.m. trying to finish your half gallon for the day. Overall, I would highly recommend this bottle if you're trying to drink water consistently throughout the day!"—Nicole

    Price: $19.99+ (available in 10 colors)

    10. A Takeya water bottle – it's downright elegant looking, IMO, and also can double as a travel coffee mug if you're looking for a multitasker.

    Promising review: "This is the fourth Takeya water bottle that I’ve purchased and I love them all. I have the 40-oz for myself, and my kids each have the 14-oz which is great for elementary school lunches. I recently bought the 18-oz for my daughter as she’s starting to outgrow the 14-oz and likes to have water with her at all times. These bottles are great. We live at the beach and in 96-degree weather these still have ice at the end of the day. Best water bottles for hiking in warmer climates. These are totally worth the investment!!"—RiaGirl910

    Price: $23.99+ (available in six sizes, two lid styles, and 28 colors)

    11. A full gallon water bottle for those days when you have to Capital H Hydrate and don't have time to mess around with constant refills.

    A hand holding the blue water bottle

    Promising review: "This is an amazing water bottle. I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of drinking a gallon of water a day, and I tried so many different bottles. I’ve probably spent hundreds of dollars on water bottles! But I found the exact one that I’m looking for. This bottle is just perfect. The numbers are easy to read, the quotes are inspirational. And it’s also easy to fill and drink from. I can also put ice in it easily because it’s got a wide mouth. The straw is an added bonus, because most water bottles don’t have one this size. The strap is also very handy as is the handle. I will definitely be buying another one for my husband!"—Sydney

    Price: $14.99+ (available in seven colors)

    12. A hydration backpack so you can drink water and keep your hands free on long hikes, bike rides, or even ski trips.

    Promising review: "Compact, lightweight, and tough. It was a perfect hydration pack to do a 12-hour hike up and down a rocky mountainside in southern Arizona. It carried a lot of stuff in addition to the nearly two liters of water to keep me hydrated: a windbreaker coat and gloves for the cool night, several power food bars for sustenance, a monocular for sighting, a battery pack for my iPhone, a small flashlight for the darkness, and a small first aid kit for the 'just in case.' For the price, a sure bargain."—ATorres

    Price: $23.98 (available in four colors)

    13. A narrow-mouth bottle that won't dump water all over your chest if you misjudge your angle (definitely not speaking from personal experience here).

    The black water bottle on a ledge

    Promising review: "I have had other vacuum bottles and liked them until I dropped them because they were so heavy and unwieldy in my hands. This one is tapered and shaped nicely. I have used it daily for a couple months so far and it has not been too heavy. The bottle is tall and tapered so you can't see well into it as you fill it up. I loved the choices of color but ended up getting a solid silver one. I tend to leave my bottles laying around, so this one was my choice, and I've still got it, and haven't forgotten it so far! I may get a second and smaller one with a nice color scheme next!"—W. G. Walker

    Price: $11.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    14. An insulated bottle to keep your drinks *cold* cold, without breaking the bank. Plus it comes in a ton of cute colors.

    A hand holding the light purple bottle

    Promising review: "I LOVE this bottle and it's getting me to stay hydrated and drink water more often. It's so effortless to drink water because this bottle makes it fun for me. I don't think I will be putting anything else in it so it's easy to clean. I like really cold ice water and so I tell you - the ice stays solid ice up to days without melting that proves that it keeps things cold. I really like that it's a straw design and it comes with two straws plus a cleaning brush. The little handle makes it helpful to carry and I love the colors to choose from. I am very happy with this purchase. I read reviews on Amazon and am glad that I did my research and picked this brand bottle." —Godessmissy12

    Price: $13.59+ (available in six sizes and 23 colors)

    15. A cute, teeny water bottle that's perfect for kids, or anyone who just doesn't have the arm strength to lug a huge, heavy bottle around all day.

    The small bottle on a counter

    Promising review: "Excellent product! I'm a person who doesn't drink water and its too heavy to carry big bottles in my book bag w/ textbooks. This bottle is tiny and it motivates me to refill my bottle and drink more! This is a very lightweight bottle when it's filled with 12 ounces of water! (The weight feels like two iPhone 6 Plusses with no case) and it's made of good quality. It is very clean and simple-looking. This is absolutely my favorite bottle out of all I've bought. The description tells you exactly what you are getting. It's a thick/sturdy plastic material, doesn't leak and I also love that it holds hot water." —Richard Kay

    Price: $12.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors)
