Anything But a Cup Ideas
Going to an :Anything but a cup' party and want to stand out? This list will get the ideas flowing!
This is definitely the coolest no cup idea and is just perfect for Halloween parties or any time you're feeling a bit macabre. This is actually a really nice thick glass whiskey decanter, so don't drop it! So it's meant for drinks and is far better for you than anything plastic. And looks awesome with or without liquid. When you're not using it, leave it on top of your dresser for a cool decoration.
Made by the same company as the periodic shot glasses, this is much larger and holds 34 ounces of drink. What's great about this is that it was made for drinking, it's actually a flask. So when the top is on, it is spill proof. And since it's made of laboratory grade borosilicate glass, it's a better container than the cheap plastic ones.
Why not try an empty sunscrren container? Really you can use any empty container. There are a ton of ideas once you get going. How many things hold liquid that can be used to drink from instead of a cup. Enpty mouthwash bottles, shampoo bottles, body wash bottles, the sky is the limit when it comes to cool ideas.
When you're planning on getting totally hammered, try this Hydration Water Bladder pack that holds up to 2 liters of any liquid. The mouthpiece doesn’t leak which is perfect, and since this is wearable, you can even go home later and wear it under your clothes and noone would even know! This has to be one of the best "anything but a cup ideas" on my list!
At 32 ounces, this can hold a lot of drink. And it's light and food grade plastic. The cap is tight enough not to leak, and at around $3 per bottle, it's one of the cheapest and easiest cup alternatives on the list. Or use any condiment bottles you have, mustard, mayo, BBQ sauce bottles, and on and on...
Maybe I'm a bit gross, but this will definitely make you stand out! And at 24 ounces, the equivalent of two bottled beers, it's big enough to get your drink on.
Coconuts are perfect and never go out of style as a drink holder. Plus they're biodegradable and can be used as a trinket holder when you're done or an ash tray. Be eco friendly carrying this around a party!
