1. Hiking Bottle: You’re Not a Cactus
Hikers go for miles—it’s definitely a thirsty hobby! Why not make a special Cricut bottle for your favorite hiker? This design from Emily Long Designs is a hilarious reminder that you need to drink more than a cactus, especially when you’re hiking.
2. No Grass, No Glory—Water Bottles for Sports Team
Do your kids and their friends play baseball or hockey? Whatever the sport, you can make the whole team customized water bottles. Include their names and jersey number, along with a fun message from their coach they can read right before the big game.

It doesn’t matter if you jog around the block a couple of times a week or are a marathon fanatic; water is essential for runners. This design pushes you to keep going for another mile. You can even whip up a second one for your running buddy.
5. Bride and Groom Water Bottles
Why not do something more creative than the traditional gifted wedding toaster? Give the bride and groom something fun to remember their special day. A matching set of water bottles is an adorable personalized gift. You could also have it monogrammed, include their wedding date, or add a classic bride and groom silhouette. Plus, they can take it with them on that honeymoon vacation.
6. A Baby Bottle
Baby clothes and toys are appreciated and needed for a mom to be. But think out of the box and give a set of personalized bottles for the little one. And, like this sunny set, you could make a matching water bottle for mom! After all, drinking loads of water is important for a healthy pregnancy.
7. Book Clubs
Are you a serious bookworm? Are you part of a book club? Make a set of water bottles featuring your latest book club book. You can go all the way and make a personalized bottle for each member of your group with their favorite read. Or, like this hilarious water bottle, pick a saying that only a true book nerd would understand.
8. Back to School Bottle Designs
“Back to School” water bottles don’t have to be full of apples, pencils, and math problems. And these adorable water bottle designs prove it.

And these designs are totally trendy, which makes them perfect for middle school or high school students. And let’s be honest, a college student wouldn’t turn down one of these adorable creations either.
9. A Housewarming Gift
This could be a great way to meet your new neighbors. Use a design that incorporates your neighborhood—is there a park nearby? Or you could go with a welcoming message like this one that says, “Wherever you are from, we are glad you’re our neighbor.” Whatever you go with, you’ll definitely be helping them feel at home.

Next to staying hydrated, saying your affirmations is the next best step to good mental health, right? Why not try a water bottle that lists your affirmation for you. That way, every time you take a sip, you can pause for a minute meditation to review your intentions for the day.

Water bottles are amazing reminders of how strong you are. You see them right by you all day long, and they help you to stay healthy—especially if you’re battling cancer.

It’s time to let the best teacher you’ve ever had know you’re going to miss them next year. Honor those educators who help you through school by crafting them something to remember you by.

For anybody who loves Taco Tuesday, this water bottle design should resonate.
