August means that summer is coming to an end and back-to-school time is nearly upon us. Not customizing your kids bottles yet? Check out this list on 5 reasons why you might be missing out.
Are you more of an early bird or a last minute shopper?
For me there is something about the aisles upon aisles of pencils, pens, markers, art supplies and notebooks that provide an instant serotonin boosters. Planning a bit early means that I can avoid the rush and be more intentional with what I am picking out.
Reusable water bottles may have become a back to school staple but if you aren’t leveraging the ability to customize you are missing out.
Here are five reasons why custom kids bottles customize are an essential part of the upcoming school year:
#1 Makes It Less Likely To Go Missing
Perhaps the most obvious reason to personalize a water bottle is by doing so, it will be less likely to go missing. Etching your kids bottle makes it uniquely theirs, and incentives your child to take better care of it. This makes it much less likely to get left behind or forgotten.
A bottle that is exclusively theirs gently encourages your child to be mindful of their belongings. If, on the off chance, the bottles does go missing, the personalization makes returning the bottle to its rightful owner that much easier.
#2 It Encourages Sustainable Habits
In a world full of single-use plastic bottles, customizing your child’s water bottle helps them take a front seat to their sustainability journey.
It is a great way to introduce the concept of being eco-friendly to your child and help them see the difference they are making.
More and more schools are going low, even no, waste. Gone are the plastic water bottle days, reusable water bottles are now a part of the school supplies list.

#3 Its More Hygienic
Customizing your kids stainless steel water bottle with their name can help prevent potential “water bottle mix-ups” on the playground.
This can help reduce the risk of transmission and avoid unintentional germ spreading of illnesses that are going around during flu season.
Important reminder: most experts recommend washing your water bottle after each use and more if you are infusing your bottle.
#4 Makes Hydration Fun!
Personalization connects your child to their bottle and makes drinking water/staying hydrated more exciting.
Depending on their age, children need to drink between 4 cups to 8 cups of water a day (HealthyChildren.org). As mentioned above, a personalized kids bottle helps avoid unintentional water bottle swaps at school so it can make measuring your child’s water intake easier.
An added bonus of a customized reusable stainless steel bottle over a single-use plastic is that the customized reusable bottle will help keep your kids drinks colder for longer.
#5 It Wont Wash/Fall Off
Oftentimes the way to personalize bottles in a pinch is through stickers or vinal wraps. These options unfortunately don’t tend to last long and are far from a permanent solution.
Customizing your bottle by etching over a traditional sticker makes the design significantly more durable, ready to take on anything your child throws at it.
For GROSCHE personalization specifically, we offer a premium laser etching service that won’t come off between washes and is sure to last for a long time!
