(#AD – The two bottles featured in this post were kindly gifted to us by Chillys)
I don’t know about you but I am a massive sucker for cute water bottles and re-usable cups. My kitchen cupboards have got tonnes in them and every time I walk into a store that sells them, I want to buy more!
Now, Chilly’s claim that their bottles will keep all cold drinks cold for 24 hours and your hot drinks hot for 12 which is a great concept and is a huge marketing point and it’s exactly what I bought into! I work 8am-6pm most days with not a lot of sitting down time and a refreshing cold drink is exactly what I need when I’ve been running around so I bought it to take to work with me.
I will say that it does exactly what it says it does. I love making a cuppa and popping it in my bottle and it still being hot a couple hours later when I remember I’ve got a drink. Long gone are the days of forgetting you made a cuppa and it being cold by the time you get to it! I also took mine on my holiday to Portugal last year and let me tell you. AMAZING. Nothing’s worse than laying by the pool and your drink being warm when all you want is that coolness! I sunbathed and played in the pool for blooming ages because I didn’t need to keep running back to the villa to get a cold drink!
Lets talk price.
The standard 500ml bottle ranges from £20 to £25 depending on what designs you get. I have the Watermelon one that’s in collab with Pret that is no longer available (and I purchased myself) and the “Wild” design with a rose gold lid (that I was kindly gifted) that you can shop here: Wild with Rose Gold lid (The standard lid is silver and if you want to change it, it’s an extra couple of pounds) but you can also get a smaller bottle at 260ml (£20) and the largest they go to is a 1.8L for £35.
For me, these are 100% worth the money. I take mine absolutely everywhere. I take it to work, day trips, long dog walks, holidays. Mine live in my bag because I genuinely never go anywhere without it anymore. Plus the added bonus of it being re-usable and not a single use water bottle is better on the environment too and I just think it’s a really practical purchase and so so worth it!
Have you got a Chilly’s bottle? If so, what do you think? Let me know!
