These days, water bottles are all the rage. Our office has literally been inundated them, and this stainless steel bottle has risen to the top for several reasons.

1) It’s just a great bottle. While some openings are so big that you douse yourself every time you take a sip, and others are so small that you can’t insert an ice cube, the MiiR is sized just right, with an easy-to-spin leakproof top.

2) You can pimp it out. You won’t find these bottles in stores because they’re all custom-made according to your whims. Find them at or where you can choose your bottle and lid color. Each stainless steel MiiR water bottle also comes with a code redeemable for a glossy vinyl skin of your choosing (design your own or choose from the growing library of MiiR stock skins).

You can feel good about buying this BPA-free bottle as a gift because one dollar of each bottle purchased goes to the one4one project (visit the MiiR website for more info) to provide clean drinking water for one person for an entire year in a developing nation. Further bonus: The entire bottle is 100% recyclable (even the skin). $23; 4.5 oz.;
