Every mom needs a reusable water bottle that keeps cold drinks cold and not drinks hot.  We recommend insulated water bottles from Hydroflask or Kleen Kanteen.  They are both made with stainless steel construction that prevents condensation from building up on the exterior and have nonporous corners on the inner layer to kill odors and bacteria buildup.  Plus they come in fun colors and sizes, you can’t really go wrong.  They are great for camping, music in the park, hiking, picnics, and every day use.
