    Many national and state parks have banned the sale of plastic water bottles, which is great for the environment because less plastic means less waste. If you love to spend time outdoors, you'll need a reusable water bottle, so you can say hydrated.

With a large handle for carrying and an inexpensive price tag, the Clean Bottle Tritan Square is our favorite gift for outdoor adventurers this year.
