“Whether it was taking care of us while we were sick
Or lending a helping hand when times got thick
It is times like those when we realized we are truly blessed
Of all the gifts we can give you, a simple “thank you” may do the best” –Kory

Now is the time of year when we all say thank you to our mom. We may take her out for dinner, give roses or maybe even a special mother’s day gift. This Mother’s Day, give the gift of pink. But not just any gift, give the greatest gift that planet Earth has to offer—water. Below are some great gift ideas.

This pink Brita Water Pitcher Filter eliminates the need to buy costly bottled water that is often nothing more than filtered tap water. The Brita filter pitcher allows you to have fresh and cold filtered water on hand in your refrigerator at all times. This pitcher features a flip-top lid, soft grip handle, electronic filter change indicator and will hold around ten glasses of filtered water. The pink lid was created to raise awareness of the need to find a cure for breast cancer.

This Kor One Special Edition Pink Bottle is a reusable water bottle with an elegant design and an elliptical shape. This water bottle offers consistent hydration along with an eye-catching design. KOR also calls this bottle the “United Nations of Water” to highlight how certain areas of the world do not have access to clean water. An added benefit of this pink water bottle is the inclusion of KOR Stones, which is a unique way to have your bottle reflect your personality. KOR Stones are disc-shaped tokens that fit underneath the cap. Every time you take a sip from your reusable water bottle you’ll be treated to a motivational message.

Turn water into air. Yep that’s right. This Crane ultrasonic cool mist humidifier turns cold tap water into cool, humidified air.  This will assist in the prevention of cough, congestion and sinus irritation. It will also help to lessen allergy symptoms as well.

Mother’s Day shouldn’t be just one day, it should be every day. Remember, even a simple thank you can go a long way. And for all you moms out there that are currently reading this, you all are the best! It takes someone truly special to be a mom and you definitely qualify.

Eight Unique Christmas Gift Ideas from Filters Fast

unique Christmas gift

This Christmas, give the gifts of clean air and water.

If you want to avoid the stress of Christmas shopping in crowded malls, yet still end up with the perfect, unique gifts for your loved ones, you’ve come to the right place. This Christmas, give the gifts of clean water and clean air with Filters Fast.

You may be thinking – “filters?” Okay so maybe getting a six-pack of 3M Filtrete Ultra Allergen Air Filters is a bit like getting socks for Christmas. It doesn’t sound all that exciting on the surface to receive a water filter or air filter as a gift. But there are a few “hidden gems” on our website that maybe you hadn’t thought of giving as gifts this holiday season. I can even guarantee we have something appropriate for all ages. Wrap up any one of these filters in shiny wrapping paper, and I’m willing to bet you’ll get a better reaction than you’d get if you wrapped up a pair of socks. And if you wait until the last minute like most people, socks may be the only gifts left…

Sprite Baby Shower Water Filter

Sprite Baby Shower Water Filter

You didn’t believe me when I said we had something appropriate for all ages, did you? The Sprite Baby Shower may not mean much to your infant or toddler right now, but they’ll be thanking you later on in life when they are old enough to understand that you’ve helped save them from a lifetime of the respiratory ailments, dry skin, and itchy scalp that are caused by prolonged exposure to chlorine in the shower. This shower water filter attaches easily to the kitchen sink faucet to make bathing your infant in clean, chlorine-free water even easier. Later, when they’re “all grown up”, you can detach the shower arm and reattach it to any existing shower head in your home.

Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifiers

Filters Fast carries these in several designs, great for nurseries or children’s rooms; choose between Sponge Bob, Elephant, Frog or Hello Kitty. As with the Sprite Baby Shower, your child will be thanking you later for saving them from chapped lips, nose bleeds and dry skin, as well as cold and flu symptoms associated with low humidity.

Vapur Anti-Bottle Water Bottle

Vapur Anti Bottle Water Bottle

The Vapur Bottle is a foldable, collapsable, reusable water bottle (or should we say, pouch that holds water?). Filters Fast currently carries it in six fun colors that your teen is sure to love. It easily attaches to any backpack or purse and may be folded to fit in your pocket when empty. Send your child off to school with one of these, and they’ll be the envy of all the other kids. After all, reusable bottles are way cooler than plastic water bottles these days.

Watersafe Science Project Water Test Kit

Don’t worry, adults – we do have gifts for you as well, and we’ll be getting to those soon. But here’s another one for the kids. Filters Fast carries the Watersafe Science Project Kit in two sizes: 4-pack and 10-pack, allowing you to test multiple water samples at once. The kit is easy enough for elementary students, yet scientifically sophisticated enough for high school science projects or experiments. It even comes with a suggested project outline and data sheet. Results are easily transferred to posters or charts for student presentations. If you want to give an educational gift to a child you know, I don’t think it gets any better than this.

Katadyn MyBottle Water Purifiers

Vapur bottles are great for the young (and young-at-heart) but if you’re looking for something more sophisticated and high tech, these reusable bottles come with built-in filtration technology that will make just about any water source safe within minutes. Dip this bottle into a nearby lake or stream while hiking, or use it to filter tap water that has been declared unsafe, and I’m willing to bet you’d be okay. The Katadyn MyBottle Water Purifier filters 99.99 percent of waterborne viruses, bacteria, and protozoa, bringing you safe water, even in the most extreme emergencies. We even listed Katadyn among our top picks for emergency filters that will help you survive the apocalypse. If you know someone who loves hiking but doesn’t want to haul 20 plastic bottles of water through the wilderness, this is a great gift. You can’t lose with Katadyn water filters.

Kleen Kanteen Reusable Water BottlesKleen Kanteen Wide Mouth Insulated Reusable Stainless Steel Water Bottle

These don’t have built-in filters, but they are some of the most popular reusable bottles out there. With the Kleen Kanteen Wide-Mouth insulated bottle, you can add ice or even fruit slices to your beverage. It also keeps hot beverages like coffee hot for hours, making it a great gift for coffee lovers. The wide mouth opening makes it easy to clean, and because it’s composed of stainless steel, it doesn’t retain the taste or odor of any food or beverage. Even the inside of the caps are made of stainless steel, so that no harmful plastic ever touches your water.

Brita Water Pitchers

Brita Pitchers come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. These water filter pitchers significantly reduce chlorine and other impurities in your drinking water. They fit conveniently inside the refrigerator, providing you with cold, clear, filtered water whenever you need it and are great for entertaining guests. Most Brita pitchers come with a built-in filter life indicator that lets you know when it’s time to change your filter. These are some of the most popular water filters on the market. You can’t go wrong when you give a Brita water pitcher filter as a Christmas gift.

Dog It” and “Cat It” Fresh and Clear Pet Water Fountains

A special foam portion collects debris such as food, hair, dirt, fur, sediment and other large particles, while the activated carbon filter reduces impurities like chlorine from your pet’s drinking water.
