Who doesn’t love a hot water bottle? Warming up your bed on a chilly night, soothing your aches, pains and cramps… is there anything better? Well, in fact, maybe now there is! The YuYu bottle does all of those cosy, huggable things, but it comes in a long, thin design, so you can wrap it around yourself and snuggle up with it.
The YuYu bottle covers come in a range of luxurious fabrics (including Mongolian cashmere, Japanese cotton and super-soft fleece), beautiful colours and prints. Some styles even come with a strap so you can wear the bottle ‘hands-free’. All are beautifully packaged.

The YuYu bottle was designed and patented worldwide by Richard Yu in 2011. It first launched in Harrods, in super-soft cashmere, and quickly became a bestseller. It’s now available in several top-end hotels, as well as being sold online and in a selection of fancy shops.
Apparently, Richard Yu took his design to Dragons’ Den, but they didn’t invest. Cold shoulders all round. It certainly doesn’t seem to have held him back, with awards a-plenty. We like the strong ethical and environmental stance too.
