5 water bottles to stuff stockings with this Christmas 2019
What better gift to give your loved ones and friends than the gift of hydration?


MANILA, Philippines – There’s something about a water bottle that makes it the ideal Christmas present for practically anyone you can think of. With so many colors, styles, and types of bottles out there you’re sure to find one that will suit the lucky recipient – and unlike notebooks and other exchange gift staples, the right water bottle can last a long time.

Not to mention, it’ll give someone a leg up on popular New Year’s resolutions – whether that’s to cut down on their waste, or drink more water.

Here are our picks:

For your friend who likes to keep their drinks cold

The cold-retaining powers of brands like Hydro Flask and Klean Kanteen are the stuff of legend – but they also come with a hefty price tag. One budget-friendly version is Kawayan MNL’s Jose insulated tumbler, which claims to be spill-proof, and supposedly keeps the temperature of iced drinks for 24 hours, cold drinks for 12 hours, and hot drinks for 6 hours. It’s also locally-made, and sustainably sourced, and you can have it engraved to make it even more special.

Kawayan MNL’s Jose insulated tumbler is available for P1,100 (additional P200 for engraving) at the Naturale Market at Burgos Circle, The Fort and Ayala Malls Manila Bay. You can also order online, through Kawayn MNL’s instagram page.

For your fit friend

Two things that make a good sweat session extra rewarding: lots of water, and a deep massage to keep those hardworking muscles in their best condition. With the SKLZ Hydro-Roller, you can give your gym-rat friend both! The Hydro-Roller has a stainless steel bottle that’ll hold up to 28 oz of water, enclosed in high-density foam roll to massage aching post-workout muscles.

The SKLZ Hydro-Roller is available at Chris Sports, and on the Chris Sports website. As of this writing, it’s on sale, with a bundle of 2 costing P2,199.

For the gift-giver on a budget

You can get practically anything at Miniso – from plushies, to makeup, to sportswear. Of course, you can get a variety of water bottles and tumblers there too – and the best part is, they’re as affordable as they are cute, so buying in bulk and getting one for all of the friends on your list shouldn’t be a problem.

Prices range from P179 to P229. There are a number of Miniso branches in malls around the country. For a complete list, checkout the Miniso Philippines Facebook page.

For your that person who’s always on the road or on the go

Whether your friend is navigating the streets of the urban jungle or backpacking across the world, the less bulk, the better. Enter Daydream Republic’s Drink ’n Stash collapsible water bottle, which fits a Venti-sized drink, but is only 4 inches when collapsed. It also comes with a carabiner keychain so it can be attached to the outside of a bag, keeping your recipient’s hands free to contend with the traffic.

Daydream Republic’s Drink ’n Stash is available on their website for P649.

For your *aesthetic* friend

Corkcicle’s bottles are not just functional – they’re also very pretty. The Corkcicle tumbler’s signature shape looks almost like decor, and with a variety of colors and finishes, they make the perfect accessory to add some oomph to any office desk, bedside table, kitchen counter, or Instagram post.

Corkcicle is availble in stores across Metro Manila. Check out their Facebook page for a list of their locations. – Rappler.com
