The Hottest Consumer Drinkware Trend Is the Gallon-Sized Water Bottle
A water bottle is not just a water bottle. Sure, they all ultimately accomplish the same task. But ask some very online kids what kind of water bottle they want, and they’ll likely have strong opinions.
That’s because water bottles are just as prone to trends as items like T-shirts or jackets. Especially in the age of social media influencers, the right person holding a particular bottle can be enough to create a phenomenon.
As trendy water bottles go, this one has its heart in the right place—keeping you hydrated. And we mean really hydrated.
After a few celebrities like Dakota Johnson were spotted with gallon-sized water bottles, people started taking their hydration a little more seriously, or at least showing off their bottles. Much like S’well bottles and Nalgene bottles before it, the gallon-sized water bottle is getting write-ups from pop culture sites like Pop Sugar ranking the best ones.
Part of the charm is that most of the bottles give you little inspirational messages as you work your way to the bottom of the jug.
The Oliv One Gallon bottle has imprinted messages corresponding to the time of day and where you should be at your hydration journey.
“Keep on believing!” at 1 p.m.
“All things are possible!” at 3 p.m.
The Large One Gallon Motivational Water Bottle is a bit more direct.
Just bought this gallon water bottle. Now I can finally write that book I’ve had on the back burner...A Woman and Her Office Bathroom, a Love Story. pic.twitter.com/tPweVdPdDj

Most of them also have a handle, making it a little easier to lug around a gallon of water throughout the day.
Accessories, even ones completely utilitarian, are subject to trend evolution. Even the most basic product can become an overnight sensation. And every product like a water bottle, which is meant to accompany you all day, can pair well with items like backpacks or bags.
You’re definitely going to need one to fit in this behemoth of a bottle.
