5 Best Hot Water Bottle Covers 2020 | The Sun UK12/31/2020
WINTER is well and truly upon us, which means it's time to pick up a hot water bottle and prepare to get seriously cosy.
Whether you place one in your bed to warm it up before getting in, have one in your lap while working from home or use yours to soothe aching muscles, a hot water bottle feels best when it's encased in a soft and snug cover.
The best hot water bottle covers are crafted from soft and plush fabrics that you'll want to hug and have by your side: think faux furs, cable knits and fleecy fabrics.
And when it comes to appearance, there's an abundance of styles to choose from, which makes hot water bottles a great gift idea too. From cute kid-friendly designs and novelty shapes, through to luxury bottles perfect for treating friends and family, you're bound to find something they'll love.
If you don't already have the hot water bottle itself, most covers tend to come with one anyway—and it's always handy to have a spare. Traditionally made from rubber, and filled by pouring in hot water from the kettle (never boiling), these days there are some great alternatives: from rubber-free eco designs to microwaveable bottles that do away with filling and emptying all together.
Below, we've chosen some of the best hot water bottle covers available to shop now and envelope yourself in cosiness.
