Filter water bottles have changed the way we drink water on the go. Bye-bye single use plastic bottles – now there's no need for theme ever again! Filter water bottles have one over the more basic multi-use steel bottles because they feature built-in water filtration, improving the quality and taste of the water. Essentially, what you get is bottled-quality water by just filling it up. And they make great eco-friendly gifts for Christmas, helping reduce plastic waste. It's true that many of them do have plastic parts or are made from plastic, but they are much more durable and will last years. Here are our top pi cks that look good enough to give as presents for Christmas.

Philips GoZero Active Bottle with One Fitness Filter

Philips GoZero Active Bottle with One Fitness Filter | $14.99 at Amazon 

This lovely peach-colored bottle is out favorite: it includes a carbon fiber filter that reduces lead, pesticides, and up to 99% chlorine. It is made from a flexible plastic that's squeezable – it's very easy to drink from and also won't break in your backpack if you use it while hiking. 

JTTVO Water Bottle With Filter

JTTVO Water Bottle With Filter | $28.99 at Amazon 

There's some serious filtration going on in this bottle: not just a carbon filter, but also a medical grade hollow fiber UF membrane,  and medical grade PP cotton. Very impressive, and the water it produces does taste really good. We like the sea-blue color, too – very attractive in a car or while hiking. 

Brita Water Filter Bottles

Brita Water Filter Bottles | $37.99 $34.99 at Amazon

A great plastic-free option, the Brita water bottle is made from stainless steel and comes in many colors. Includes a Brita water filter that fits through the straw and lasts two months. Very stylish as a gift. 

GRAYL Ultralight Water Purifier [+ Filter] Bottle

GRAYL Ultralight Water Purifier [+ Filter] Bottle | $69.95 at Amazon

Ok, this one isn't cheap, but it's very, very nice. This is no ordinary filter water bottle, because it doesn't just remove chlorine to improve taste. The filter in this awesome bottle will remove waterborne pathogens such as Hepatitis A, Norovirus, Rotavirus); Bacteria (e.g. E. coli, Salmonella, and even Cholera. The perfect gift for a keen backpacker; they can look forward to their next adventure, whenever that will be!

BRITA Water Filter bottle

BRITA Water Filter bottle | £13.28 at Amazon 

Brita make some of the best home water filters, and this nice-looking bottle will delight anyone who likes this brand, or anyone who has reusable water bottles already, but not a filtering one. The filter in this one reduces chlorine and microplastics, but keeps essential minerals in the water. Choice of three pretty colours. 

BLACK+BLUM Eau Good Water Bottle with Charcoal Filter

BLACK+BLUM Eau Good Water Bottle with Charcoal Filter | £14.92 at Amazon

This is such a great, minimalist design – and you know exactly what the filter is made from, because you can see it! This glass filter water bottle is completely plastic-free, and the charcoal filter is biodegradable and replaceable. We're definitely getting a couple of these.
