Just a few new favorites:
16oz Host Revive Glass Water Bottle with a soft-touch silicone sleeve and top handle for easy carrying. I've been using this for a couple weeks and I love it / it's been getting a lot of compliments! I also now wish my favorite tumbler had a carry handle. There haven't been any issues after washing it either; if you see any water trapped under the silicone sleeve, just easily wipe with a towel and it'll be dry again.
12oz Asobu Ultimate Mug. Double wall vacuum insulated copper lined 18/8 stainless steel with ceramic inner coating.
22oz Hip Bottle. Reminiscent of a hip flask, the shape is flatter than the standard water bottle, allowing Hip to be easily carried in backpack or handbag. Through a partnership with Water for People, every Hip product purchased provides two days of safe drinking water to people in need. You buy a stylish water bottle and someone across the world takes a safe drink of water. Because it's Hip to Give Back!
22oz Speckled Thor Copper Vacuum Insulated Bottle. The double-wall stainless steel vacuum construction with copper insulation allows your beverage to stay cold for 48 hours and hot for at least 12 hours. Complete with the on-trend, durable speckled powder coating and a stainless steel screw-on, spill resistant lid with the natural bamboo top and a durable stainless steel hand loop. It features a wide opening for comfortable filling and pouring. Perfect for ice cubes and fits most standard car cup holders. Love how you can do a laser etching on the bottle AND on the lid!
14oz Double Wall Ceramic Tumbler with Ceramic Lid. This fits under most corporate coffee machines (!) and is microwave safe (remove silicone stopper on the ceramic bottom before placing in the microwave).
17oz Asobu® Inner Peace. Want to drink from a glass bottle but you're afraid it will break? The double-wall Asobu® Inner Peace Glass Bottle is the answer. The outer wall is made of temperature resistant, shock proof TRITAN, while the inner wall and spout are made of glass. The inner glass liner is protected by two cushioned sections made of soft silicone. This completely protects the inner glass liner from severe shock and breakage. The outer TRITAN wall adds additional protection.
Finally! A tumbler with ceramic lining! Ceramic doesn't make drinkware better or worse, it's more of personal preference; I'd personally prefer to drink from ceramics vs metal. Don't get me wrong, I've been using tumblers with metal linings but rejoiced when this ceramic one came out.
This ceramic lined tumbler is copper vacuum insulated and carries 20 oz. Available in Black, Blue or Silver.
(You would think that something that's copper vacuum insulated would insulate better than something that's vacuum insulated without copper, but there have been studies conducted that have proven that copper doesn't provide any extra insulation! Also, these things are copper plated, not full copper. Just some interesting info!)
Wearing your heart on your sleeve is not nearly as fun as wearing your drink on your wrist! Yes, this is a 4 oz flask that you can wear as a bracelet.
Brew, press and go for the perfect cup of coffee every time! This 13 oz one cup coffee brewer by bobble combines immersion brewing and reverse flow filtration. The micro-filter prevents overbrewed bitterness and grit while the three-wall insulation keeps your coffee hot for hours! No plastic pods and paper filter waste is generated by using this product. The item itself is made of food-grade 304 stainless steel and food-grade, high temperate silicone and is top rack dishwasher safe.
This water bottle has been so well received, and for very good reasons! Not only does it look sleek, you can put ice and water in it and I swear it's still cold the next day (thanks to this being a double wall stainless steel with copper vacuum insulation bottle)! It's been out for about a year and this now comes in NEON colors, white, matte army green and mossy oak. It comes in three different sizes - 12 oz, 17 oz and 26 oz. The 12 oz comes in matte gray and matte black, while the 17 oz and 26 oz sizes comes in matte gray, matte black, matte army green, white, mossy oak, neon blue, neon green, neon orange, neon pink, and neon yellow. LOVE all of the colors - check them all out below:
This is a beautiful water bottle and what's special about it is that you can insert "stones" (a printed piece made from one of my favorites - stone paper!) within the cap, so a message shows when you open the bottle. It looks a lot like glass but is made from BPA-free Eastman Tritan, has a soft rubber/cushioned base that protects furniture and prevents slips, and has a hygienic spout where the cap protects the spout from outside germs when not in use. The ergonomic handle makes this easy and comfortable to carry around and the spout feels really great on your lips (weird to say but it's true - it's threadless and smooth). Other KOR water bottles are also available - Aura, Delta, Nava (has a built-in filter), Vida.
h2go force double wall stainless steel thermal bottle with copper vacuum insulation and threaded stainless steel lid. Comes in matte grey or matte black and in 4 sizes: 12 oz, 17 oz, 26 oz & 34 oz. Available late August. Love the look of these; they're ... s'well ...... ;)
16 oz Axle -- Double wall stainless steel thermal tumbler, vacuum insulated with threaded 360 lid (just twist the lid top and you're able to drink from any side). Comes in high polish(chrome) and matte black. Available mid-September 2014.

So I'm sure you've seen whiskey rocks being sold in stores - it's a great giveaway, especially for summer (ok, who am I kidding, these are great to use all year round)! Wind down a busy day with a nice, ice cold drink (whiskey, a cocktail, ice tea) and throw these 'ice cubes' in there! You have different types to choose from - steel, ceramic, soap stone, Tritan Copolyester. There are also sets that come with glasses (branding would go on the glasses, some rocks come with a little mesh bag when you want to throw them in the freezer, and it also comes in a nice gift box).
I'm almost never without my Lahlouh branded Camelbak water bottle and I also use this other 24 oz vacuum insulated thermal bottle basically everyday - it keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold ALL DAY. It's big but it still fits in most cup holders (see the aspen bottle, 2nd image down). Water bottles and other drinkware are basically another type of item that will definitely get lots of use - lots of guaranteed brand exposure! There are various brand name drinkware companies we can co-brand with - Camelbak, Contigo, Thermos, Nalgene, Kleen Kanteen, SIGG, KOR, Blender Bottle, etc.
When it comes to insulated drinkware, there are two types: vacuum insulated or foam insulated. Like I mentioned above, vacuum insulated pieces keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold all day; foam insulated pieces keep its contents hot or cold for a few hours. Just something to keep in mind.
Also, matte colors are very 'in' right now and look really sleek - ie a matte black water bottle with a glossy black imprint for a great tone-on-tone look! Subtle and so cool looking.
What's cool this year are infuser bottles - they come with removable cages where you can put lemons, limes, strawberries, etc, to infuse your water. I can say that your water intake will increase when you use these infuser bottles; at least that seemed to be the case when we were testing them out!
