At Giften, we're huge fans of nice glass. Life is too short to drink out of plastic, and there are much more sustainable options on the market.
When it comes to practical, beautiful, sustainable objects, bkr glass water bottles are one of our all-time favorite lines. I've been using bkr bottles just about daily for years - The Big (1L) size at home, and the Little (500ML) for away.
Maker Spotlight: BKR Bottle Startup Story
Fueled by the implications of single use plastics and frustrated by the current options on the market (Read: water doesn't taste as good in plastic or metal containers!), Tal Winter and Kate Cutler started building bkr in 2007.
Hydrating shouldn't be so hard.
And that's exactly what they set out to solve. Gorgeous glass water bottles that are eco-friendly, easy to clean, leak free, and BPA-free.
"A growing obsession with the pretty little bottle resulted in reports that they people were finally truly hydrated and, as a result, they were looking and feeling better. And, as it's said, the rest is history."
Next, these female founders focused on lip hydration. Confident they had solved the hydrating-is-hard problem, they were annoyed that they still had dry lips–despite being two of the most hydrated people on earth who owned every lip product in existence.
They decided to do the thing they were inspired to do: create the hydrating, holy grail, omg, cosmetic soulmate of lip balms themselves.
The duo spent five years building "the most hydrating, clean, vegan lip balm in the world," Paris Water Balm. They even patented a compact cap engineered to connect directly to the bkr bottle.
Winter: ❄️ ‘Tis the season for ouch—chapped, dry and painful lips. Our advice: don’t lick your lips, stop using...Posted by Bkr on Sunday, December 22, 2019
A light bulb moment that started as an elaborate and actually-executed April Fools’ joke in 2019 resulted in this extension of the Kiss Kit with an empty compact container where the balm had been. Teeny tiny storage at the top of the bkr, but we made it fashion. Now we had the perfect space for all our tiniest necessaries: mints, hair ties, emergency candy, medicinal gummies, vitamins, and everything in between.

People with limited mobility in their fingers and sweaty hands tell us our spiked water bottle has changed their lives." -bkr
