When times are getting tougher, one reflects on the essentials. For example on the hot-water bottle. Until recently, nobody peddled which model they didn’t freeze under the covers with in the evening. In an everyday life dominated by technology, the hot-water bottle had the glamor factor of a landline connection. But since it became clear that even the coolest high-tech device doesn’t keep us warm, the hot-water bottle has gotten hot again.
When temperatures drop below freezing, we may soon be filling hot-water bottles with hot water and walking around the house with them like we’re holding a clucking baby. You should pay more attention to the coating. Because he can definitely transform the staid hot-water bottle into a chic accessory. It does make a difference whether it’s sterile fleece that you take to bed with you or high-quality new wool, such as that offered by the Austrian brand Steiner (1, via Manufactum), which is woven in up to 40 manual steps.
Or the model from Raum Concept Store (2): The cover in old pink with cashmere and patch pockets is reminiscent of a real sweater that you can easily stow away on the velvet hanger. The Pullover model is also available in a cost-effective polyester version from Qomfor (3). It gets really fluffy (and exclusive) with the hot-water bottle from Weich (5), which keeps the heat in with its soft alpaca fur and could become a must-have.
If you are looking for an extraordinary hot water bottle, go for the Meermann model (4, via shop-rikiki), tail fin included. In this way, the everyday object becomes a favorite object that is good to cuddle with, like the sleeping bunny from Shengruili (6). Incidentally, during the energy crisis, the hot-water bottle has something better than the cherry pit pillow, which is heated in the microwave, and the electric blanket, for which you need a socket: you can still heat water in the event of a power failure. On the camping stove.
