Drinking water doesn’t come easily to everyone, and people tend to have different strategies that keep them hydrated. There’s a whole class of water-haters who find that H2O makes them gag, many of whom add flavor. Others rely on massive jugs with notches drawn on them to indicate how much they should be drinking every two hours. For me, it all comes down to the perfect water bottle.

I definitely glug closer to my recommended amount of 60 ounces of water a day when I’ve got my favorite Nalgene on hand. If my husband pours me water in one of our less appealing plastic glasses that show dishwasher wear, it tastes more like a$s than the refreshing Elixir of Life. I’ll usually take a few sips and give the rest to my dog.

I’m not the only one with this tendency, and some people take it a step further by exclusively using water bottles with built-in straws. “I’m lazy so I have to have easy access,” says Beatrice, 31. Alexis, 25, also prefers bottles that come with their own straws — the Stanley Quencher Cup, specifically. “I actually have four of them,” she tells Bustle. “I legit travel with my huge water bottle when I can fit it because I know it’ll help me drink more water.” Becca, 32, is the same, though prefers her light pink tumbler. “The glasses I have at home have a wide mouth, and I prefer a smaller hole.”

Seeing as proper hydration is a wellness goal for many people (especially water-haters), having a cute bottle you love could be key. It’s like playing a mind game with yourself, the adult equivalent of a parent telling their baby broccoli is so yummy and eating it themselves before feeding it to their kid. We’re all just a bunch of big babies anyway.

Besides, if you find a chic-enough water bottle, it could become a status symbol of sorts. Think of it as a portable, life-giving work of art. I mean, don’t you want to be the first person in your friend group with the TikTok-viral Frank Green water bottle?
