Something I will forever be fascinated by is that water bottles trend. As in, one kind of water bottle will be popular for a while, but then it’ll be succeeded by another style or brand that will become the hyped bottle, only to be replaced not long after. In many ways, it’s intimately tied to wellness culture, and in other ways, it’s related to the upgrades in understanding what might be the least harmful bottle environmentally while also being the largest/best at keeping ice cold/keeping beverages hot/easiest to lug around/whatever other qualifier one might attach. I know when I was pregnant, I spent a not-insignificant amount of time looking for a giant water bottle and coming up with “only” a 64 ounce option. Two years later, I’m able to find those easily, as well as water bottles nearly double the size.

I use a fancy (and pricey) Stanley Cup now, thanks to the fact it holds carbonation nicely, and I’m a seltzer drinker. I keep a couple of other tumblers and water bottles around, too, in my car and in my yoga bag, so that I do have access quickly and don’t need to rely on disposable cup/seeking out a smaller option. And though I’m satisfied with my collection, I am tempted to add a bookish tumbler or reusable bottle to my stash. Drinking receptacles may not be my love language as they are for others, but I do enjoy looking at them and think these bookish options would be perfect for the reader itching to add to their collection and have something to tote with them on their reading jaunts in the park, the cafe (yes, you can ask your drinks be made in them!), the beach, or anywhere else you may park with a book and a sip.
