Health and wellness is as important as ever and when it comes to corporate promotions, drinkware is always a big hit. After all, hydration is one of the most widely recommended elements of healthy living. According to the Institute of Medicine, the adequate intake of total beverages for men is roughly 13 cups (3 liters) per day, and for women about 9 cups (2.2 liters) per day. So it’s no wonder promotional drinkware is an integral component in the list of merchandise we recommend for health and wellness promotions.
The hottest new type of promotional drinkware is the shaker bottle, which not only provides the ability to hydrate, but also ties in with the popular trend of powdered supplements for pre-workout, post-workout and general meal replacement. We believe this trend adding powder to water will stay popular for many years, making shaker bottles a good investment choice for your advertising or promotional dollars.
Whether the recipient is an avid fitness lover or a newbie, either can appreciate being given a quality shaker bottle and newbies might even be motivated to workout by having a new cool bottle.
First Off, What is a Shaker Bottle and What are their Key Features?
There are many types of shaker bottles with different features and functions, but generally a shaker bottle is a non-electric cup or bottle with an internal mixing mechanism that simply works by – you guessed it, shaking. Features include, screw on lids, different types of drinking spouts, the mixing system itself, and optional measuring guides, flavor infusion, and dry powder storage.
Some shaker bottles have floating components like a mixer ball or whisk. Others, like the Cyclone, have keep their mixing mechanism stationary. When you shake, the friction does the blending, and since many of these powders do not fully dissolve having the ability to remix with a few shakes is a great benefit over electric machines.
Size also matters. Bottles range from about 12 ounces to as large as 28 ounces depending on your needs. There are also a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and functions as well, so finding the perfect bottle to fit your active lifestyle is a painless process.
How do you use the shaker bottle?
Shaker bottles are pretty easy to use: open them up pour in your liquid (typically water), use the optional measuring scale often molded into the bottle. Add your powder, screw the lid back on tight, and shake. Re-shake as necessary.
Make sure to clean your shaker bottle
We’ve heard from some of our customers about the importance of cleaning these bottles well. Most are at least top rack dishwasher safe, otherwise some soap, hot water and a kitchen brush should do the trick. Store with the lid open or at least the drinking spout to avoid odors.
