Hot Water Bottle Cozy
Like rooibos tea or steamed milk before bed, a hot water bottle quickly becomes a ritual. Jennifer Evans designed this pretty, practical cozy that knits up in a trice. Fill your cheerful red rubber bottle with very hot tap water, tuck it between your sheets and turn the thermostat down. No more cold toes! And wouldn’t it make a thoughtful gift?
