Updated Sep 29, 2021 7:47 AM
typically tend to fall under the category of household essentials that skew towards the utilitarian—which means that more often than not, they’re not the most attractive or style-focused pieces in the tool shed. And realistically speaking, we would be hard-pressed to splurge on said essential, seeing as its sole purpose is to simply transfer water from point A to point B.
That said, we scoured the market to unearth the watering cans that just may inspire an upgrade—to those who use a water glass in lieu of one, we’re looking at you. From the sleek and contemporary to the chic and budget-friendly, we found the very best of all that is available right now. Take a look.
