Having a dependable on-the-go beverage bottle is essential, and since Stanley is a Shop TODAY favorite brand it's no surprise that we'll be gifting its bottles and cups this season. Takhtehchian says this Classic Legendary Bottle is leak proof, making it top-notch for traveling on cars, trains or planes with coffee, tea or even soup. Plus, the lid doubles as a drinking cup! This exclusive collaboration with Magnolia's Hearth & Hand collection offers the bottle in calming earth tones.
