The $25 Amazon Find That’ll Make You Feel Like You’re Sleeping at a Five-Star Hotel
I try to stay hydrated throughout the day, but going to sleep without a bottle or glass of water next to my bed somehow feels very… wrong. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. I’ve just woken up thirsty in the middle of the night one too many times to make that mistake again. And up until now, I never considered the container I brought to my bedside every evening. Whether it be my reliable CamelBak, a Hydro Flask, or the standard 12 oz. glass, as long as it was clean and large enough for the job, it went right next to my table lamp.
At least, that was the case until I saw a TikTok video a few months ago in which user @theriviereflair listed a couple of her favorite “bougie gadgets” for the home. Among them was a crystal water carafe, used for the very same purpose I just described. In fact, if you search something along the lines of “carafe nightstand” on the app, dozens of similar videos show up in the results, all depicting people pouring water out of these beautiful crystal pitchers. After viewing such captivating content, I did some searching on Amazon and came across this Lefonte crystal carafe and tumbler set, which is very similar to a lot of the ones I viewed on TikTok.
The great thing about this product is that it’s not just a carafe; it also comes with a matching tumbler glass, which sits conveniently on top of the pitcher like a lid. To pour yourself some water (or any beverage of your choice), simply remove the glass, flip it upside down, and voilà! You’re drinking water like I imagine a posh heiress would. Although with a typical pitcher you run the risk of getting your drink contaminated with various air particles, that’s not a problem with this container.
Shoppers who bought the carafe note this hygienic feature as one of its many good qualities, along with its size and solidity. “This little carafe set is exactly what I was looking for,” one reviewer shared. “Looks super expensive but is affordable and the perfect size. The glass is a nice thick quality and the design is super cute.”
Many others mentioned the sophisticated flair it brings to the bedroom. “What a nice addition to my guest room!” said a happy customer. “Makes it feel like a luxury hotel. You want your guest to feel special and this looks beautiful.” Another shopper concurred, adding that it makes the perfect present: “Great looking, excellent weight, [sturdy] base design with a perfect top. This is the best gift that I ever bought for myself.” And as one reviewer summed it up, “Beautiful addition to my bedroom nightstand and ritual. Having such a beautiful piece to drink my nightly and early morning water from makes it more enticing. You won’t regret purchasing such an elegant piece.”
