We know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but we are getting more and more excited for the main event…the holidays! Everyone in New York is starting to bundle up and we bundled up some S’well bottles perfect for everyone on your list. We put together a list of gifts that go great with a few of our bundle themes:
Put down your razor and grow your MO because it’s No-Shave November! For the whole month, participants will skip the shaving in order to create conversation and raise cancer awareness.
No-Shave November began as a tradition of the Chicagoland Hill family, who lost their father Matt hill to colon cancer in 2007. Since 2009, the organization has over 2 million dollars to date.
The idea behind No-Shave is that many cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy lose their hair, so we should embrace ours and donate the money we would typically spend on shaving and grooming to raise money for cancer prevention, education, and research.
You can even set up your own fundraising page that your family and friends can contribute to.
S’well is excited to have partnered once again with No-Shave November. We’ve created two moustache bottles and will be donating 20% of each bottle to the organization.
As you know, S’well loves to show our team s’pirit no matter the sports team! But since we are a New York based company, and baseball season is drawing to an end, we’re so excited that one our own made it to this far! To celebrate the two teams dueling it out, we’ve created two baseball bundles; the NY Home Run and the KC Grand Slam. Both bundles will be 15% till one team comes out on top. So buy us some peanuts and cracker jacks, because we’ve knocked it out of the park with this deal!
Though it still feels like summer was just yesterday, we are deep into October and making the most of it. There are a few things that you can’t go without this month, so we’ve listed them out for you:
Hocus Pocus: First and foremost, this movie is an irresistible classic. It put a spell on us many moons ago and we wait all year for it to be acceptable for us to watch it on repeat…for the whole month long.
Mulled wine: As it starts to get colder, we sadly say goodbye to nights spent with chilled white wine, but happily welcome the company of warm glass of mulled wine. We love this simplerecipe from Ina Garten.
As you may have already heard, S’well is (still) celebrating our 5th birthday. We loved getting to give 5 lucky winners birthday gifts, but the S’well team wanted to celebrate too. Last night, we gathered with 300 of our closest friends and family at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg for a night of drinking, music and S’well. And with a little help from our friends at Universal Music Group, we had an exclusive performance from Vaults (recently featured on the 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack). Thanks to everyone who came out last night, we hope you had as much fun as we did!
We’ve got s’pirit, yes we do! We’ve got s’pirit, how ‘bout you? Football season has officially kicked off; between the parties and tailgates, your S’well bottle will be the best game day teammate. Our stainless steel bottles will be sure to keep your beverage of choice at a touchdown temperature. We’ve put together a suggested list of bottle combinations that match some of favorite NFL teams to show off your team s’pirit:
Every 2 minutes, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. This October, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are truly honored to be working with partners that are devoted to funding research and a finding a cure.
Additionally, to benefit the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, we’ve partnered with BCBG Max Azria to create a bottle that will be sold exclusively on Joyus. Check out People Magazine’s Zoe Ruderman and the President and CEO of the CFDA, Steven, talk about these beautiful S’well bottles here.
For this week’s blog, we’re excited to have our Director of Custom Sales, Kathryn, talk about the upcoming holiday season and why custom S’well bottles make great gifts:
Over the years, how much SWAG have you thrown in the trash, re-gifted, or refused because you did not need any more clutter in your life? I am guessing you’ve received more than your fair share at Running Races, Press Events, Trade Shows, and beyond.
Before joining S’well, I always gifted with a purpose. Since joining S’well, I have been able to help Fortune 500 companies, startups, luxury hospitality clients, and many more gift green. With the holidays fast approaching, I wanted to share my Top 5 reasons why S’well is better than any other gift you could give your clients and employees:
S’well will be the fashionable and functional replacement to the plastic bottles currently being used in your office space. You’ll be outfitting your team with something they will use at home, work, and play, while saving the planet from single use plastic bottles.
No one want’s another fruit basket or box of chocolates …again! It’s almost resolution season—give the gift of hydration and the best gym accessory
Everyone loves a good bottle of wine, so why not pair one with a 25oz S’well. Come summer, your clients will carry their Rosé with them to the beach because they loved your gift back when they were freezing…now it’s just their wine that is freezing cold
Other water bottles don’t work hard to keep your beverages cold for 24 and hot for 12. Encourage a healthier and hydrated team by gifting a 17oz Stone Collection bottle, like Fenwick & West, perfect for any adventure.
S’well is a gift that they will actually LOVE! With our fashionable colors, patterns, and textures, there’s something for everyone. Best of all, it’s not another T-Shirt, hat, or tote bag. You are giving so much more than a “water bottle”—you are giving the hydration accessory used by celebrities and influencers!

‘Tis the season to travel. Long weekend getaways and out of office replies are the norm. So pack your bags and your S’well and check out some of our travel hacks here:
S’well bottles are of course a great travel companion. We’re frequently asked if they are safe to bring through airport security. They are! Just make sure to empty out your liquids before doing so.

S’WELL AROUND THE WORLD
We love to see where you take your S’well, so don’t forget to use the hashtag #swellbottle and we’ll live vicariously through your S’well bottle adventures around the world!
Before the beautiful summer weather leaves us once again, we’re trying to fit in as many group gathering as we can. And let’s face it, who doesn’t love a dinner party with friends and family? We’ve rounded up a few quick tips to keep in mind when you throw the ultimate Dinner Party over Labor Day weekend:
Serving up a cheese plate to start? If it were up to us, we could eat cheese for the whole meal. But we love Real Simple’s guide to the perfect cheese platter, which outlines the different varieties to consider and what to serve with it. We recommend using one of Brooklyn Slate’s beautiful cheese boards, sure to catch the eye of your guests.
If you’re thinking about assigned seating, our 9oz S’well bottles are the perfect alternative to place cards. Use the Chalk Ink Pens to personalize each bottle with your guests’ names. At the end of the party, they’ll walk away with a fun memento of the night!
Set the table
You know the fork goes on the left, knife on the right, but you have to set the rest of the table too. We love the variety of flower arrangements The Bouqs creates and their guarantee of the freshest flowers.
Set the tone
Music will set the tone for any dinner party. You don’t want to put your guests to sleep, but you don’t want to feel like they’re eating dinner at a rave. We love Spotify’s“The Lounge Bar” playlist, that has stripped down lounge versions and covers of some of your favorite songs.
Gift for the host
As a guest, it’s customary to bring a bottle of wine, a dessert or a small gift for your host. Why not bring them a 25oz S’well! You can even chill a bottle of wine and put it in the bottle before giving it to your host so he or she can serve it.
We’re huge dog lovers here at S’well, so much so that we’ve even held a bring your dog to work day. Dogs are a man’s (or woman’s) best friend and so is your S’well! Both come with you wherever you go and are ready for whatever adventures life has in store. We love seeing pictures of the two together, so we’ve compiled a few of our favorites #swellbottle Instagrams featuring some playful pups! Happy National Dog Day!
