    Promising review: "It seems silly, but something simple like this has gotten me drinking a gallon of water a day.

    6. 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.

    Promising review: "SodaStream changed my life! No more lugging pop home from the grocery store. I drink so much more water now! Many retailers give you a good deal when you exchange the empty Co2 canisters in store, so it's really not expensive!" —Karen Mc.

    10. Or, an infusion bottle that you can take on the go.

    Promising review: "This water bottle infuser transforms your normal bottle of water into a tasty and healthy drink! I stopped drinking soda a very long time ago, but I wanted a flavored water that would taste good when I wanted something flavorful. It's easy, it's flavorful, and it's refreshing! If you're struggling with 'junk drinks' as I like to call them, I say try this healthy alternative and see how well it goes for you. It's dishwasher-safe, it's made of a good material, the flip-top lid is a HUGE PLUS, and it can help you stay on track with whatever health goals you currently have in your life." —Josiah B.

Doesn't taste weird (unless you add tooo much), in fact, it tastes GOOD. I'd highly recommend this product if you are trying to transition off sugar-loaded drinks (mine was Peach Snapple)." —Janel S.

    Get a variety five-pack from Amazon for $19.95.

    13. A leak-proof fitness bottle with a storage compartment so you can stay 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

    Promising review: "Easy to use. Perfect for my desk at work. It reminds my to drink every 30 minutes, which is very helpful when I get busy and distracted. No obnoxious noises to bother coworkers. I think the price is a good value, considering the benefits of drinking more water." —SZEBRA

    15. A set of glass bottles for preparing different kinds of infused waters, teas, and juices.,

    Promising review: "They are wonderful. No more buying plastic water bottles for me! I keep all six of them filled with water in my fridge so I have access to cold water all the time. And it's a much more environmentally friendly way of having water on the go. They look great! The lids are super nice, and I've had zero issues with them. They actually help me drink more water because I have cold, clean water in my fridge all the time now!" —Jennifer Wilson

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $19.95.

    16. A bottle with a built-in filter to take on a hike, a camping trip, or wherever purified water might not be available.

    Promising review: "I originally bought this water bottle as a means to reduce waste, save money, and drink more water while traveling on airplanes. What a great investment! 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

    Get it from Amazon for $36.84 (available in 14 colors).

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

    This 22-ounce bottle is made of BPA-free plastic.

    Promising review: "Great little guy to have in your water bottle arsenal! It's lightweight with a nice grippy side. My favorite part is the size. While it doesn't fit in traditional water bottle sleeves on the side of a backpack, the shorter, slimmer design makes it perfect for a messenger bag or a purse. It sits flat and doesn't roll around like a traditional bottle. Plus, I like that you can see the bottom to make sure it's clean!" —CharlieW

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 11 colors).

    18. A highly rated app that encourages you to stay hydrated with an adorable plant buddy. In order to keep your virtual plant healthy and alive, you have to drink an allotted amount of water.

    iTunes Store

    Promising review: "This app has changed my life so drastically for the better. I’m a very active human and do lots of time-consuming sports and activities that tend to wear me out. I never ever think about just grabbing water. Sure, I carry around my water bottle from sport to sport but I never just take a second before, after, or during to just take a drink. But with this app, it all changed. I’m a happy vegan and plants are my everything, so there is no way I’m going to let mine die even if it is virtual. I think this app is very good at reminding you to drink water because it asks you to feed your plant but you can’t do that until you drink the amount of water given for your custom selection. Since water makes up most of your body weight and keeps you alive and not drinking it can make you dehydrated... this app saved me. 💦😉" —dadddyvegan.8

    Get it from the iTunes Store or Google Play Store for free (in-app purchases available).

    19. Sugar-free flavor drops for anyone who hates the taste (or lack of taste) of plain water.

    Promising review: "A weakness of mine is drinking enough water. I probably live in a constant state of dehydration. Drinking plain water is such a chore, and I can never force myself to drink enough. Enter MiO Liquid Water Enhancer. The Orange Tangerine flavor is refreshing and not artificial tasting. A bonus is that it has a small amount of B vitamins. I have a hard time finding this flavor locally but luckily Amazon included it in their Subscribe and Save program so I have a constant supply arriving monthly." —Jeffrey M

    Get it from Amazon for $3.19 (available in a variety of flavors).

    20. A box of naturally flavored water to order in bulk because you'll run out of it in no time.

    Promising review: "I don't know how they do it! Ok, yes, I do know how they do it, but I'm still amazed that something so pure, aside from plain water, can taste this good! Hint has managed to take water — refreshing, live-saving water —and enhance it without any added junk (sweeteners, preservatives, etc.). Of course, I drank water prior to finding Hint, but I also admit to loving my caffeine and other flavored drinks. Although I want to be healthy, I also like having a little flavor and Hint water lets me do just that! I've tried both the watermelon and peach flavors and liked them both, however, watermelon is my definite favorite. In my opinion, they're good at both room temperature and chilled, but I prefer it cold as the flavor seems brighter (a bit more pronounced). I would not describe it as sweet like a beverage that has a sweetener in it, but it's definitely has a sweet natural flavor to it. I have two cases of the watermelon on Amazon Subscribe & Save, and I still run out sometimes. I highly recommend getting the variety pack if you are looking to try a bunch of different flavors, or go with good ol' watermelon and then branch out. Whatever you do, definitely give it a try!" —LaurenLazer

    Get a 12-pack (watermelon flavor) from Amazon for $14.76 (available in six flavors and variety packs).

    21. An easy-to-install faucet filter so you can get really fresh-tasting water straight from the tap.

    Promising review: "The Engdenton Faucet Water Filter was installed in two minutes (without tools) and tap water that was foul with chemicals now has no taste at all (like water should).

    As an A/B test, before installation, I poured a glass of unfiltered water and set it aside. Seven minutes later, the filter was installed and sufficiently flushed so I poured a glass of filtered water. I tried the unfiltered glass and it tasted (and smelled) almost as bad as water from a public pool. On the other hand, the second glass contained odorless, clear, and tasteless tap water. I'm on my second six-ounce glass of filtered water right now and I will no longer have an aversion to drinking the local tap water.

    It makes a BIG difference!" —J. Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $51.98.

    22. Coconut-flavored infusion drops that'll make filtered tap water taste so much more delish.


    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

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    23. A press-and-go tumbler for a super easy way to enjoy iced tea anytime, anywhere. It works with both tea bags and loose leaf tea.


    This 16-ounce tumbler is made of durable, BPA-free, temperature-safe Tritan plastic — and it's safe for the dishwasher. Just add hot water and loose-leaf tea or a tea bag to the outer chamber, let steep, then fill the inner chamber with ice and press it down into outer chamber.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $19.99.

    24. An enamel pin to constantly remind you to stick to your hydration goal.

    Hartiful / Etsy

    Get it from Hartiful on Etsy for $8.58.

    25. A Hydro Flask so your drinks stay cold for up to 24 hours. If room temp water is your enemy, this is the bottle for you.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $35 (available in five colors).

    26. An app that'll let you set up water-drinking alerts throughout the day. You can also input different kinds of drinks (not just water) because 90% of your fluid intake is from coffee and wine, if we're being honest.

    Google Play

    Promising review: "I love this app 100%! So basically, the app will remind you to drink water every hour of the day and how much water you should be drinking depending on your weight so that you can stay fully hydrated 😊. Also, another great thing about this app is that it tracks how much water you've drank that day/week/month as well. This app has helped me a lot since I started using it and I hope it will be able to help you, too! 💕"—A Google user

    Get it from the Google Play Store for free (in-app purchases available). Get a similar app for iOS here.

    27. And a "Drink Water" vinyl sticker for decorating your Hydro Flask.

    CJStickerShop / Etsy

    Get it from CJStickerShop on Etsy for $2.32+ (available in five sizes).

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


    Promising review: "I have never really kept track of how much I drink on a daily basis but I was pretty sure I wasn’t drinking enough water, so I figured this would help keep me accountable to my recommended drinking duties. And it’s definitely helped. For me, I think it’s mostly an awareness thing. The simple act of moving that little counter every time I refill has forced me to pay more attention to how much water I’m consuming (or lack there of…). It’s closer to the forefront of my thoughts instead of just being an afterthought now. So for me, I’d say is absolutely worth the $10-$12 dollars it costs.

    This little lifesaver comes with me pretty much wherever I go now: work, when I’m running errands, even brought it into a restaurant one time without thinking (woops). The more it stays with me, the more I drink. I’m consistently drinking up to the 5 or 6 slot; so approx. 100–120 ounces of water, which is more than my weight/age recommendation." —Theresa Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $10.20+ (available in five colors).

    Stay hydrated, friends!
