The sun dresses and shorts have finally been put away. It’s officially s’weater weather! We’re ready to welcome in and celebrate the colder temperatures. As we patiently wait for all of the holiday festivities that are soon to come, here are a few suggestions of things you can do in the meantime:
1. Rock a tacky holiday sweater or Drake-inspired turtleneck like this one from Acne Studios.
2. Whether it’s on your local pond that’s frozen over or at the Winter Village in Bryant Park, get outside and go ice skating.
3. Get in the kitchen and cook up a holiday treat! If you need some inspiration, check out some of our favorite recipes on our pinterest page.
4. Curl up with hot tea and that book you’ve been meaning to read. We recommend The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
5. Netflix and chill warm up with takeout from our friends at Postmates.
6. Send your seasons greetings or a thank you note with these cards from Gramr – the holidays are the perfect time to show you care.
7. Grab a seasonal brew from our friends over at Starbucks – now selling limited edition S’well bottles in stores across the US.
Let us know what your favorite s’weater weather activities are by tagging @swellbottle or #swellbottle on social media.
Once again, this season S’well joined Mercedes Benz Fashion Week to provide bottles to their VIP event attendees. We created a three-piece exclusive limited edition collection of 9oz bottles from the Stone Collection; Moonstone, Amethyst and Smokey Quartz featuring exclusive MBFW designs by Richard Haines.
Additionally, S’well was excited to create custom bottles for designers like Cynthia VIncent, Zimmermann, BCBGMAXAZRIA, and Opening Ceremony for their NYFW shows and backstage.
The bottles looked as chic as what was coming down the runway and were the perfect fashion week accessory as team S’well attended BCBGMAXAZRIA, Zimmermann, Charlotte Ronson, Lacoste, Mara Hoffman, Opening Ceremony and Carolina Herrera New York Fashion Week shows.

As mentioned in our previous blog post, we’ve been feeling like we’re living in an eternal winter here in New York. But we know the end is near and we all will defrost soon.
We’ve got some good times coming our way at SXSW this month! We’re excited to be apart of this year’s Spotify house during SXSW Interactive hosting SoulCycle in the mornings and amazing artist performances throughout the day/evening.
Team S’well has been compiling a playlist of tunes we can’t get out of our heads in hopes to get us through the remaining weeks winter a little bit faster. If you have a Spotify account, search for “swellbottle” and check out what we’re listening to. If you don’t already have it, download Spotify and jam to our “Jaded” playlist.
Winter got you feeling jaded too? We’re kicking off the last month of cold weather by taking 15% off 9oz and 25oz Jade from now until March 31st, while supplies last. Shop now.

We’re going to be honest; winter in New York City can be brutal. We’d love to let it go and say that the cold never bothered us anyway, but the cold is really starting to bother us. There’s no escaping the bone chilling cold, those gusts of wind that can sweep you off your feet or the feeling that it’s never going to stop snowing. Even still, team S’well has been braving the weather to explore the wonders of winter in New York City.
A stroll through Bryant Park is fitting for any season. But in the winter, the famous Josephine Shaw Lowell Memorial Fountain freezes over, stopping tourists and New Yorkers in their tracks. The icicles hanging over the granite fountain resemble a crystal chandelier.

Lucky for us, our new office is located conveniently close to The City Bakery, home to that famous hot chocolate you see everyone posting on Instagram. And we totally get the hype. The rich cocoa is not to be compared and warms our bellies when we can’t feel our fingers.
