Make no mistake about it: the makers of NOTHING are offering you...nothing. But this nothing comes packaged in a beautiful custom die-cut envelope made of heavy cardstock, featuring letterpress details, a hand-embossed seal, security tape, and a signature. A quirky campaign that could lead to a fun gift for that person in your life who's impossible to shop for.
When activated, the UV bulb in this self-cleaning water bottle will kill 99.99% of bacteria inside. It also comes with an app that keeps track of your water intake throughout the day.
