winter essential: hot water bottles

Have you ever used a hot water bottle? The first time I did was in a lodge in the middle of a remote jungle in India. The mornings and nights were frigid. It was impossible to shake the chill and the damp cold just settled in my bones, leaving me shivering constantly. Even in bed, it was difficult to warm up. And then, one night, I crawled into bed and found that the kindly housekeeper had put a hot water bottle in there. I was shocked at how warm it was, how cozy and comforting. And even more surprising was how long it stayed warm, pretty much through the whole night. On a cold winter night, a hot water bottle is a luxurious companion! Here are two that I love: Cashmere Hot Water Bottle, Restoration Hardware, $29.99 Small Knit Hot Water Bottle with Spiral Dots - Ivory, Indigo, $12 If you've already got a hot water bottle kicking around at home, dress it up with one of these stylish covers: Hand Knitted Hot Water Bottle Cover, Not On the High Street, $60 Hot Water Bottle Cover - Upcycled Sweater, Truly Simple on Etsy, $40 'Creature' Hottie Covers And Sets, Not On the High Street, $73
