We all know that we should be drinking more water (the average adult should aim to finish eight eight-ounce glasses of water per day). But if we're being realistic, we know that this doesn't often happen. That's why we're always searching for new ways to hit that final tally—and we just struck gold. As it turn outs, drinking out of beautiful glassware makes the entire act of hydrating that much more fun. And while we're all for upgrading your kitchen cups and tumblers, we have another idea in mind.

Whether you are looking for an easy way to keep water accessible even when you're in bed or simply searching for a way to quench your thirst in the middle of the night (that doesn't involve getting out of bed and heading towards your nearest bathroom or the kitchen), keeping a carafe of water by your bed is a surefire way to encourage you to drink more—especially first thing in the morning. Here, you'll find a broad array of beautiful options; these sets come with both a glass and a large matching decanter that nestle together compactly on your nightstand.

Choose from a set of hand-blown iterations that are as unique as they are useful, or artisan-inspired pieces made from recycled materials halfway around the world. Some of these designs are so elegant that you'll want to move them out of the bedroom entirely and put them somewhere you can enjoy them all day long (we're all for it!). No matter what you're looking for, you'll be sure to find it on this list of beautiful bedside carafe sets that are guaranteed to keep you hydrated well into the morning hours.

No one likes dusty, stale water—which is why this 24-ounce carafe creates a near-secure seal between the decanter and the tumbler, thanks to the thick lip at the bottom of the glass. Set the two firmly on top of each other to ensure that your water is always fresh.
