A reusable bottle is good for the planet, financially responsible, and can come in almost comedic sizes. As in, a full gallon.

The one-gallon water bottle is not a benchmark for how much water you need in a day. Harvard Health recommends four to six cups a day for people who are generally healthy. That’s 48 to 64 ounces. For reference, a gallon is 128 ounces.

BUT a gallon water bottle is aspirational. It’s inspirational. It can be shared, taken on a camping or road trip, or how I use it: As a personal hydration station I only need to refill once every two days or so.

Here are some photos of objectively attractive, fit men holding gallon water bottles for size reference:

That bottle they’re holding—the $29.99 HydroJug—also happens to be our reviewer’s favorite one-gallon water bottle. If you’re wondering how you review a big-ass water bottle, we brought five different jugs on daily outings, road trips, family hangouts, outdoor sporting events, and a weekend camping trip; carried it in the car, a backpack, and a tote bag; washed it a few times by hand; and looked at how long they could hold ice or retain heat.

We also reviewed a bottle with little motivational markers along the side (“keep chugging”).

We hope you find a container you like to remain hydrated. If you’re already repping the one-gallon bottle club, let us know what you’re using.

This colorblocked fleece pullover is so fun! I wanna wear it every day (Plus it’s on sale right now)

We used a Pilates chair at my class last week, and both my mom and I loved it. It was a fun change of scenery (from staring at the ceiling from the floor or reformer) and I like that it doesn’t take up too much space. This one’s on sale for $80!

I love affordable massage tools that look like I’d find them in a CVS or Sharper Image aisle, like the Wave soft tissue release tool

Baddie Cleanse is a body wash with salicylic acid, which can help if you tend to break out on your body. Plus the bottle looks cute on your shower shelf :)

On Running’s Cloud x Shift sneaker is on sale! It’s designed to be worn all day and for home workouts

Flamingo Estate dropped a Ski Chalet collection and this skin strength muscle soak makes me wanna cross country ski through a wintry forest until my body aches and then pour a cup of these salts into a warm bath

Another colorblock fleece! I want to throw this on before a brisk walk around the neighborhood or for a cozy night in with my friends

My sister, a mac and cheese stan, is a huge endorser of Goodles. Same here, but I’m slightly lactose-intolerant, so I love that the brand has a vegan option (also to share with my plant-based friends!)

2023, the year we worship The Nap Bishop

Tabitha Brown dropped a new vegan line for Target, and it’s very good. Look at this vegan chimichurri aioli spread and this vegan truffle garlic spread

Also, the year we commit to healthy habit-building. I’m very into this sticker-focused goal tracking sheet. Maybe you are trying to walk 10,000 steps a day for 100 days. Maybe you want to consistently drink 24 ounces of water. Maybe you want to send one thoughtful text to a friend every week. Maybe you want to be in bed by 9pm. Mark your achievements with a li’l sticky.

Cactus may help lower blood sugar, can be heart-healthy, and has a ton of vitamins and minerals. (Plus, it’s a drought-resistant crop.) A lot of up-and-coming brands are incorporating the plant into their goods, like Pricklee’s flavored cactus water. When you’re not drinking out of your gallon water bottle, you can get 15% off your Pricklee order with the code NESS 🌵

“Still, the true Los Ang-ularity may not occur until New York gains its very own branch of the ultimate Los Angeles symbol of health and wealth: the upscale organic grocery store Erewhon.”

The specialty coffee space is getting a little more eccentric, maximalist, fun
