S'well Bottle Keeps The Hot Side Hot and The Cool Side Cool

The S'well Bottle.
All through December, SFoodie is bringing you local gift ideas for the food obsessives in your life.

The news always has us so panicked about what type of reusable bottle we can keep our hot or cold beverages in that it's easy not to bother having one at all, but the S'well Bottle ($44) sold at Alite Designs is one of those great gifts that you might order for someone else and be tempted to keep for yourself. The San Francisco-based company has created a stainless steel container that is BPA free, non-toxic, and non-leaching, not to mention sleek and attractive.

We haven't road tested this claim, but Alite says that hot drinks stay hot for 12 hours and cool drinks (including wine) stay cool for 24 hours. The company also donates 10% of sales to the water, hygeine, and sanitation programs run by WaterAid.

Alite's inventory largely focuses on providing stylish, functional gear for the outdoor lifestyle. Outside of the S'well Bottle, Alite designs some rather classy flasks that are sadly currently out of stock but could make for a good followup gift next year.
