Personalized Water Bottle: Gift for 5 year olds - Teenagers

personalize water bottle

A friend of mine, who has three kids between ages 3-9, recommended this gift idea of a personalized water bottle and a gift card to a sports store. The idea seemed like a great fit for many kids I know, especially that harder to buy for older kid. I decided to give this water bottle and a gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods to a basketball-loving 8 year old!

20 oz Aluminum Water Bottles

To find the water bottle, I searched through several shops and found options for every type of sport so you can customize it for your recipient. Etsy shop, A Sassy Southern Life, sells 20 ounce BPA-free Aluminum Water Bottles with vinyl graphics applied to the exterior. There are cute personalized options for tennis, basketball, football, soccervolleyball (a second volleyball option here), dance, balletgymnastics, cheerleading (a second cheer option here), or only a personalized name. They are all reasonably priced so that you could also include a gift card to a local sports store with this gift. 

26 ounce Engraved Stainless Steel Water Bottles

Etsy shop, Engravable Creations, has Engraved Stainless Steel Water Bottles with personalized designs for volleyball, soccer and baseball. Unfortunately there wasn't a basketball option. 

10 ounce BPA-Free Plastic Straw Bottles

For younger kids there are smaller 10oz bottles available from Etsy shop, Shop Around The Corner 3, like these clear, BPA-free, straw bottles that can have a name and sport icon added. What is nice about these bottles is that there is an option to use a tinted color for the inside bottle like with these gymnastics bottles with a pink inner layer. Other activities available include ballet, cheer, basketball, swimming, karate, hockey or a name without an icon.

18 or 24 ounce Stainless Steel Bottles

I ultimately ended up ordering from Zazzle because they had a basketball version that is BPA free and made of stainless steel, but it is more costly than the Etsy options. When I ordered this bottle, the default has the 18 oz bottle selected, but there is also a 24 oz option available for additional cost. I didn't think much of the size at the time, but after receiving it I learned that the 18 oz size is smaller than what I'm used to seeing for these bottles. The 18 oz size is good for a kid, but for a teenager, I would probably opt for the 24 oz size.

Regardless of the material and bottle size you choose, all of these sellers offer lots of options for customizing color, font, and sports icons. Click on the links in the text to see options for the various sports!
