Winter is coming and it’s nearly time to get the humble hot water bottles out again. Tweens and teens love to snuggle up after a busy day and there are some pretty cool versions to keep them cosy. Hot water bottles not only keep them warm but also ease aches and pains and save on heating! We have picked out our favourites and both agree that in this country a hot water bottle is never a bad present!
For your information and to help you choose the right one, the ‘standard’ hot water bottle we all know and love is a 2 litre one.
