Especially in these hot summer months it is very important that kids drink enough water so make sure you pick a safe, good quality drink bottle for the kids to take to school. My son has been using a Contigo drink bottle since starting kindy and we LOVE it! You can find a great selection of Contigo bottles for the whole family at the fabulous Nic-Nac store.

Contigo Runabout Lime GreenContigo bottles are well known all around the world as ‘the best non-spill bottles around’ and I can fully back that up. The 100% spill- and leak-proof Contigo Runabout bottle (250 ml) is created for children aged 3-8 and features the innovative Autoseal technology which makes sure there are no accidental spills between drinks. The Autoseal concept is simple yet effective: Just press the button to sip and release the button to automatically seal. Voila, no leaks!

Contigo Runabout Hot PinkOther great features include a non-slip base, one-piece lid (no parts to come apart or go missing), easy-grip shape for little hands, no BPA, Phthalates or PVC and to top it all off the bottle is dishwasher safe too (top shelf). I think we can safely say the Contigo Runabout is a real winner and at just $11.95 per bottle you can’t go wrong. The Contigo Runabout is available in six stylish colours to suit both boys and girls.

As you all know it is very important to drink plenty of water, especially if you are pregnant like I am, but ever since moving to Australia in 2006 I have struggled with it. The taste of Australian tap water really puts me off and when pregnant I am always extra sensitive to unpleasant tastes and smells. Bottled water may be more tasty but it is also rather expensive and using a new bottle every time is not eco friendly at all. A few months ago I stumbled upon a fantastic solution, meet the ‘Bobble‘.

These funky looking drink bottles are called Bobbles, and they make drinking water enjoyable once again. Simply fill one of these babies with ordinary tap water and when you are ready for a refreshing drink the water will flow through the filter and comes out super delicious, time and time again. Instead of buying filtered water you can filter your water on the go, such a simple but clever concept!

Hip individuals will find that the Bobble Water Bottle ($14.95) is a perfect size for at home and out and about, it holds 550ml and you can fill it a massive 300 times before the filter needs to be replaced. For families, the office or if you simply prefer not to fill your bottle that often there is the Bobble Jug ($29.95), its 1.9 liters capacity should get you through the day nicely and you’ll nearly reach your daily quota of 2 liters before it needs a refill.

On top of being super stylish and delivering tasty water the Bobble is of course safe too. Bobble products are made in the USA and contain no BPA so you can drink you water without a worry. Bobbles are reusable so better for the environment, they are made of recycled materials and can be recycled themselves. Lots of top features if I say so myself! You can find the colourful Bobble range at many stockists all over Australia including Woolworths, Myer and Officeworks.

If you would like to be part of the Bobble trend why not ‘like’ Bobble Aus NZ on Facebook? Every week they give away a Bobble Drink Bottle so go and give them the thumbs up and try your luck in the weekly competition. You could just be this week’s winner!
