Cotton Traders Character Hot Water Bottle Review

Penguin Design

Hot Water Bottle

The evenings are getting darker earlier, and the nights are starting to turn colder. That must mean winter is on the way, bringing along the colder weather and Christmas. No one likes to be cold, whether in bed or just sitting on the sofa watching festive television, and all of us like to cuddle up with something cute, cuddly and warm. I am of course talking about a fleece covered hot water bottle. Not just any hot water bottle, but a character hot water bottle from Cotton Traders, one that would make an excellent gift for those family members that always feels cold and can usually be found next to a radiator or fire.

The Cotton Traders Character Hot Water Bottle comes in three fabulous Winter/Christmas themed designs: Penguin, Polar Bear or Reindeer.  My mum absolutely loves penguins, so it was fairly obvious which one we ordered – although they all look great and if you don’t love penguins it might just prove to be a difficult choice as to what one to pick.

All three cute character styles all are designed in muted greys, whites and reds to fit into any home in style and all feature a fully removable fleece cover, which is machine washable. The water bottles are made from natural rubber. The bottle is smaller than the standard 2.0l, it holds approx. 1l of water, but the smaller size makes it perfect to hug for children and adults.

Cotton Traders Character Hot Water Bottle: Reindeer

As I already mentioned, we received the very cute and cuddly penguin option. A grey and white penguin, with its eyes closed and wearing a hat and scarf. It really is cute and would made an excellent gift for adults and children alike.

The penguin cover is really soft and cuddly to touch, and the hot water bottle is just the right size to cuddle up with. The fleece cover and water bottle both look and feel top quality, with good quality stitching on the fleece cover.

As well as looking great, it does do a great job of keeping you warm and even helps to alleviate pain from muscle cramps. What is going to be better this Christmas than cuddling up on the couch with a cute and warm friend to dispel the winter cold.

With the cost of energy rising this winter The Cotton Traders Character Hot Water Bottles will make a perfect gift to keep warm this winter – it keeps you warm, is great to hug and looks really cute, more like a soft toy than a heating device. So what will you go for? Penguin, Polar Bear, Reindeer or all three?

At £12 each, the character hot water bottles from Cotton Traders are definitely value for money with the quality and cuteness of them. They will be a well-received gift that will get a lot of use this winter and winters to come.

Give the gift of warmth this winter with a super cute and cuddly character hot water bottle.
