I was provided with complimentary MIU COLOR products to facilitate this review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
I’m so excited to share this brand with you all. MIU COLOR makes the most unique, really practical and eco-friendly products for all areas of your life. They sent me several to review and I have absolutely fallen in love with the quality and design of every one of them. I also love that their products are available on Amazon and Prime eligible at great prices and with GREAT reviews! Here are some you’ll want to check out.
Durable 3-Layer Waterproof Outdoor Blanket With Handles
I am so excited to use this outdoor blanket this summer. Sadly the snow will just NOT STOP here this winter but once it warms up we’re going to get a ton of use out of this. The MIU COLOR 3-Layer Waterproof Outdoor Blanket With Handles folds up neatly and closes with velcro, plus it has a handle so it’s easy to take with you to the park, beach, on a picnic, or just to hang out in the back yard. In the picture on the right you can see what the underside looks like. It’s waterproof and sand won’t stick to it either so it’s fantastic for outdoor use.
We spread it out on the living room floor to show you the size. It’s a pretty big blanket, big enough for our family of 4 to use at the beach or to picnic on. I love that it folds up so small, too, because it’s perfect to keep in the trunk and always have a blanket with you. I’m definitely taking this to the beach this summer!
Handmade Crystal Glass Water Bottle with Nylon Sleeve
We take water bottles with us everywhere and they’re all either stainless steel or plastic. Now I have this MIU COLOR Crystal Glass Water Bottle and it’s my absolute favorite. There’s no metallic aftertaste – no aftertaste at all – when you use this versus other bottles. It even comes with a couple of scrubbers to make it easy to clean, and the nylon sleeve protects it from breaking. And, BONUS: Because it’s glass it can withstand heat too. So go ahead and put your coffee in there. The sleeve will keep it warm! I brew it in the Keurig and take it on the go.
Handmade Crystal Glass Water Bottle with Nylon Sleeve with Tea Strainer
The Crystal Bottle with the Tea Strainer is my absolute favorite of all the MIU COLOR products I’ve been using. I’m addicted to this thing. As I mentioned above, this winter has been a total pain for us but I’m still running the kids to soccer practice and games. I take a bottle of tea with me everywhere now and it’s like a little warm treat that keeps me happy. It’s the little things, folks. 😉
Here’s how it works: This bottle has a top lid and a bottom lid. When you unscrew the bottom you can remove the tea strainer. It has a rubber gasket to keep the bottle sealed tightly. So put your loose leaf tea in the strainer, or use a tea bag if you’ve run out of loose leaf like me (first pic on the left), then put the strainer back inside the bottom of the bottle (middle pic above). Finally screw the bottom lid on night and tight (last pic on the right). Now here’s a little tip before you pour your hot water in the top of the bottle: I add just a little cold water from the tap to the bottle just to double check my seal and that I got that bottom lid on tightly. You don’t want to pour boiling water from the tea kettle into your bottle and have it leak all over your counter and legs. OUCH. So add a small bit of cold water to make sure you’ve got a tight seal, and then go ahead and add the hot water.
I’ve squeezed a little honey and lemon in my bottle too. Yum! Once you add the hot water the glass becomes super hot so hold it by the lids or get that nylon sleeve on there to both insulate your drink and keep it warm and protect your hands. These bottles easily fit into a standard car cup holder. Love, love, LOVE these!!! What a great gift idea for pretty much anyone, but definitely a tea drinker.
Reusable Shopping Bags
I have a bit of a reusable bag obsession but they have to be sizable and hold a lot of stuff, and they have to be strong. I like to take them to the farmers’ market and get my heavy watermelon in there! I got these three colorful MIU COLOR reusable shopping bags and we love them. I’ve used them from everything to toting the kids’ library books to getting the groceries.
I tried to get a couple of closeup pics of the bags to try to show you the high quality. They are super strong and can carry 20 pounds. I like that they’re big enough to carry all my STUFF when I’m shopping but they fold up really small so I can always have one tucked in my purse.
I also really like that the handles are nice and wide they’re long enough to wear over your shoulder comfortably. I’ve gotten a ton of use out of these and know I’ll use them even more this summer when we’re hitting the beach or taking road trips here and there, plus once this snow stops I’ll be at the market much more often.
I highly, highly recommend MIU COLOR products. Everything they sent me to review is really high quality, very practical and useful, and something that just makes life easier. And I love that they are providing eco-friendly solutions for us in so many areas of life – shopping, travel, and more. (All my favorite things!)
