Raise your hand if you’re guilty of never washing your water bottle and living with that weird funky, dare we say, musty odor coming from our bottle caps.

If you work in an office, your coworkers are probably the people you spend most of the day with. Let them know how much you appreciate their hard work, camaraderie by giving them the right birthday or holiday gift!
