    1. A bedside carafe (with a lid that doubles as a cup) to quench your thirst in the middle of the night.

    2. A sparkling water maker, because every drink tastes better when it's bubbly.

    Promising review: "SodaStream changed my life! No more lugging pop home from the grocery store. I drink so much more water now! I mix it half and half with sugar-free cranberry juice, and it's a guilt-free bubbly treat. I've tried all the syrups, and they are good, too. Many retailers give you a good deal when you exchange the empty Co2 canisters in store, so it's really not expensive!" —Karen Mc.

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A smart bottle attachment that tracks when you take a sip and blinks before dehydration kicks in!

    It works on any water bottle!

    Promising review: "I have a really hard time remembering to drink water at work because I am on the computer all day. This device is great because it flashes when I forget and I can see it even if I am on a call or engrossed in an order. I would highly recommend." —Kelley K. Lamb

    6. A water bottle with a rotating dial to keep track of how many times you refill throughout the day.

    Promising review: "Wonderful product! I've owned many water bottles and none can compare! The top closes airtight. Press a button to open and drink (one-handed). The lid has spring action, so it stays in place while you drink. It doesn't swing back and hit you in the face. The bottle is easy to grip and doesn't slide when wet because of the non-slip surface on one side. A ring at the top allows you to hold it with one finger or clip it to a carabiner. The drinking hole is round and large enough to fit a straw inside it but small enough to drink comfortably from it. The top twists off completely for easy cleaning, too. It also has a disc that you can turn one notch each time you refill it, tracking how much you drink each day. The icing on the cake!" —M. Meyer

    Promising review: "I never drank enough water a day until I purchased this product. I love the taste of it, and I am able to drink more water after I put a few droppers of the product into my filtered water. It is also easy to take with you to add to bottled water on the go." —Patricia S Maher

    11. A water-tracking print to stick on the fridge or frame on the wall, so you'll always remember to hit your eight-glasses-a-day target.

In the first couple flights I took, the bottle paid for itself. Since then, I've used it for daily use and hiking. It's great that I can fill up at a faucet or dip my bottle into a stream (!) and know that my water is safe to drink. It's an incredibly empowering feeling for this active person looking to stay hydrated!" —Simon Sayz

    Promising review: "I bought this based on several website reviews that said that it was one of the top five faucet mounts for 2015. It took me less than a minute to install with no tools! No leaks and the water tastes incredible! I can't believe the price on this either for what you get. I can't stop drinking water (and that's the whole point)! Buy it, you won't be disappointed!" —Messy Dye

    Promising review: "Amazing product. I have to drink at least three liters of water a day for an inner ear disorder and was always struggling to do so. These make it so easy because the water never gets a weird taste from the bottle like my previous plastic ones. I just fill these up every night and have my daily water amount ready to go. They don't leak, and I haven't had any problem yet with them breaking. The glass is pretty thick so it would seem to be kind of hard to do so. I love these bottles and will definitely buy more if I ever need to." —L.B.

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $19.95.

    18. A pretty pitcher or carafe to always keep in the fridge or on the dining table. Whenever you see it, you'll be reminded to pour yourself a drink.,

    Promising review: "This is the best investment I've made in a long time. My water always stays cold, the handle makes for super easy carrying, and the spout has a little notch, so you never have to put your hands near where you drink from. Plus I've dropped it a couple times already, and it's still in mint condition!" —KatieCM

    Get it from Nordstrom for $44.95 (available in five colors).

    20. A reusable flask you'll always have on hand because it just looks so cool. Plus, it could easily fit in any bag.

    Promising review: "It's slim and light, but the quality of the plastic is great. The seal on the lid is very secure (I love that it comes with both a black and white lid). As long as you are mindful of closing it all the way, it does not leak. I feel comfortable laying my Memo bottle on top of my electronic devices. I got this bottle because I knew that if I had something convenient to stash in my bag, that wouldn't leak and looked attractive, I would drink more water. I've had this bottle for under a week, but I've already been using it every day. LOVE it." —Hana Hawley

    Get it from Amazon for $22+ (available in three sizes).

    21. A pack of electrolyte tablets for making a tasty and hydrating sports drink to enjoy after working up a sweat.

    Promising review: "I've been using Nuun as a sports drink for many years. It does a great job of keeping electrolyte levels high without sugar or artificial sweeteners like the more commonly available electrolyte drinks. Have tried almost all the flavors and like Tropical the best. Drink this instead of Gatorade or Powerade. Your body will thank you." —Lynn M.

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $21.01+ (available in 11 flavors).

    22. An app that lets you set up water-drinking alerts throughout the day. It also lets you input different kinds of drinks (not just water) because, let's be honest, 90% of your fluid intake is from coffee and wine.

    Let's not kid ourselves here.

    Available for Android. Get a similar app for iOS here.

    23. A box of naturally flavored water for anyone who thinks making infused water from scratch is too much work.

    This drink doesn't contain sugars, stevia, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, calories, artificial flavors, or GMOs.

    Promising review: "This right here is probably the only reason I still live. This is the only way to get me to drink water. It has to be flavored, but I hate the stuff with the fake sugar in it. This is super yummy. It has good flavor and contains no sweetener. Be advised, though, it's not a super strong flavor; it's pretty light, but it's enough that it doesn't have the boring blah-ness of plain water." —Dusty Mcbunny

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $17.37 (available in 13 flavors).

    24. A pretty tea infuser bottle so you can sip on your favorite herbal blend during long commutes.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $28 (available in two designs).

    25. A leak-proof fitness bottle with a storage compartment — perfect for staying hydrated and organized during a workout.

    Promising review: "This water bottle is simply amazing! I bought it to go to the gym, and it is exactly what I was looking for! The front compartment is great to put small items like bills and a key. The clasp that keeps it closed works great. My favorite part of this bottle is the auto-seal feature of the cap. The lid is there to keep the mouthpiece clean, it remains leak-proof until you press the button. It is very comfortable and has actually encouraged me to drink more water than I used to. Overall this water bottle is fantastic and fits my needs for a great price!" —Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors).
