Not a beer, silly! Exercisers who had 20 ounces of chilled water an hour before a workout -- and every 15 minutes during -- delayed their rise in body temperature by 30 minutes. That's a good thing because the quicker your temp spokes, the faster you tire out. Keep cool with an insulated bottle, like the stainless steel S'well ($25 to $45, www.swellbottle.com)
This lunchbox-sized water bottle fits easily into school lunches (and Christmas stockings), but better yet, it’s insulated. This means cold drinks stay cold on a hot day. It also means that hot cocoa or soup will remain hot for up to 12 hours. BPA-free and eco-friendly, the folks at S’well support Water Aid, providing safe water for impoverished countries.
"Not only does this slick stainless-steel bottle keep your drink (whatever that may be -- no judgement) cold for up to 24 hours but S'well also donates 10 percent of its net sales to WaterAid, which provides access to clean water in some of the worlds poorest communities ($35, swellbottle.com)
"SIP ON THIS: Not your dad's water bottle-- this one's stylish and slender and keeps your drink icy-cold fro 24 hours. Hot colors such as flamingo and blackboard perk you up during marathon hot yoga sessions. SO COOL: A double- layer BPA free stainless-steel insulation system works like a thermos. LOVE: Ten percent of proceeds go to WaterAid charities in Africa and India."
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated, especially when we're in for a major sweat session. If you're tired of blah water bottles, try quenching your thirst with one of these eco-friendly bottles that are practical and irresistibly stylish.
The double-walled insulation keeps cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to 12. Amazing! Your tea or coffee stays warm and contained should you not be able to consume it all at once, which is often the case when you’re a new parent. I discovered the joy of thermoses after having to constantly reheat my tea, and am even more thrilled to now have a water bottle that doubles as a thermos.
" Dubbed ‘The Couples Collection’, this set of three sleek insulated hot-cold beverage bottles includes a larger ‘Ours’ bottle and two smaller ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ bottles (one of each, or two of either one). The big size can hold a whole bottle of bubbly or wine: We’ll raise a glass to that!"
"Of course the most important feature of the S'well bottles is not how well it keeps your beverage insulated, or how good it looks stuck in a pocket on your backpack. It's the fact that the company donates 10% of its sales to support the WaterAid organization which creates programs to improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in some of the world's poorest communities. And keep in mind this has been the company's mindset from day one, not a by-product of their success."
"For outdoor recreation, help Dad go green with the gift of the S'well bottle... These bottles are ideal for camping, biking, hiking and traveling... The S'well bottle is stainless steel, nontoxic and great for beverages, especially if you are entertaining outdoors."
"S'well bottles are not only stylish and functional, they're environmentally and socially conscious too. The bottles are able to keep beverages cold or hot, are toxin-free, non-leaching and made with high-quality stainless steel, eliminating plastic bottles. Through their partnership with WaterAid, every S'well bottle sold will help support WaterAid's program that improves access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in some of the world's most impoverished communities."
"We told you about the S'well Bottle quite a while ago, and while it's worth reminding you about this stylish reusable water bottle that will keep your beverages cold for twenty-four hours, it's even more exciting to show you the new and improved version. Girls, meet the 25oz S'well Bottle ($45). We suppose it's not actually improved as much as it is bigger, but it's just the right size to hold an entire bottle of wine - and that's certainly an improvement if you ask us. We can't wait to sip some chilled chardonnay on our nature walks this summer."
"Right up there with “the dog ate my homework” is “my water bottle got my homework all wet.” A bottle in a backpack can ruin everything with leaks and condensation. But nothing can keep a cold drink cold and hot drink hot ALL day long… at least that’s what we thought. But S’well is a double-layered, insulated stainless steel bottle so ice cold drinks stay cold 24 hours and hot drinks stay hot for 12, and no water beads on the outside, meaning papers do not get wet in a backpack. This is the perfect bottle to take to school with an iced drink in the morning for after-school sports, and not have to worry about whether or not it will be cold enough in the afternoon. And in the winter, we’re dreaming of hot chai latte for break… of course"
"S'well bottles are elegant and useful. Portable and chic. Double walled, insulated construction allows beverages stay hot or cold for a long period of time. Constructed of the highest quality stainless steel ... these bottles are non leaching, toxin free, virtually unbreakable, yet lightweight with a wide mouth to allow for easy cleaning, adding ice cubes and most of all, enjoyable drinking."
"S'well water bottles are designed to keep drinks cold (up to 24 hours) and are a safe alternative to plastic water bottles – keeping drinks hydrated during the hot summer months. The His and Hers bottles are perfect for hot days on a honeymoon, and the 25 oz/750 ml Ours bottle keeps wine or champagne cold all night!
The Couples Collection is an elegant, sustainable and charitable gift set that can be ordered in any combination (His+His, Hers+Hers, and Hers+His). This set is available at Swellbottle.com for $85. We think all couples are S’well; I’m sure you agree, so celebrate love with the His+Hers bottles every day."
Water bottle: Fill this high-tech bottle with ice-cold water before you leave work; it will stay cold throughout your workout and even on the way home after cocktails. (Pssst — they even sell a version for wine!)
