Hot New Mug

Many of us have switched to glass drinking bottles that are great for water and cold drinks.

Now, Lifefactory, a Sausalito company known for its glass bottles wrapped in a silicon sleeve, has just introduced a glass bottle perfect for hot tea or coffee.

The new Café Mug joins the Lifefactory collection that includes silicon-wrapped baby bottles, food storage containers, and stemless wine glasses.

The sturdy bottle is not a thermos but will keep the liquid hot for about an hour. It comes in a choice of five sleeve colors with a wide mouth, a spill-proof cap that tilts open or shut with the press of one hand, and sheathed it in the insulating non-slip sleeve that protects hands from the heat.

This month, we're staying active — and warm! — with running leggings made for the cold, to-go glass mugs for a cozy pick-me-up, and the perfect solution to at-home workout boredom. See how we're staying fit for Winter with our favorite fitness products here.

I like taking my hot bevvie with me in the morning and I just started using the Cafe Collection from Lifefactory. The BPA-free glass bottle is insulated with a puffy sleeve that keeps my coffee warm and my hands cool. The bottle's lid has a safe-sipping cap that opens and closes easily with one hand. Both the 12-ounce and 16-ounce bottles fit into a standard water-bottle bike cage, so you can cycle with warm tea on a cool day...

I don’t want to give gifts just to give them and discharge some social obligation because this or that person was on my list. I don’t want them to smile and say “oh thanks” and secretly shudder or wonder where they can pitch it or how in the world they’re going to put this piece of junk in their home. Oh no ladies and gentleman. I want gift-giving to be a full on expression of how much I love and care for someone... I’ve specially curated my favorites. Some of these are gifts that change the world. Some of these are gifts that change your life. And some are just straight up cool.

In the past few years, I have noticed a bevy of different drinking vessels popping up seemingly all over the place. At work, I have seen many people drink from BPA-free plastic bottles, vacuum-insulated bottles, and glass bottles. When I’ve asked my coworkers about their preferred drinking container, everyone seems a series of reasons behind their preference...

One unique company whose bottles haven’t gone unnoticed by me is Lifefactory. Undoubtedly, you’ve seen their glass bottles with the signature gripping sleeve. They come in a wide variety of colors and are ergonomically designed to make gripping the bottle easier. I have even seen Lifefactory products used by yogis and basketball players at the gym. In fact, several of my friends who are parents swear by Lifefactory baby bottles. Lifefactory has recently released the Cafe Collection—glass mugs for hot beverages, and I was fortunate enough to test it out.
