4 of the Best Hot Water Bottles for Aches and Pains

The nights are drawing in and there’s a definite chill in the air. It’s time to get the scented candles out and snuggle up with a hot water bottle. But as well as keeping you warm and cosy, they are a spoonie must have! Heat therapy is widely used to soothe joint and muscle pain. With so many shapes and sizes, we’ve found 4 of the best hot water bottles to see you through the winter months.

1. The one for your neck

We hold a lot of tension in our neck and shoulders and a chronic illness can add extra issues like tingling sensations and cramps. But there’s no need to struggle trying to mould a traditional shaped bottle to the affected area! Try a specially designed neck hot water bottle (looks like a travel pillow) for the perfect fit.

This cosy one from Dunelm is made from the softest ‘teddy bear’ fleece and comes in a range of different colours.

2. The world’s first long hot water bottle

We’ve talked about this amazing brand before, because well let’s face it, they are they best! There are other long hot water bottles on the market, but YuYu are the original brand behind this game-changer.

With a handy strap you can tie it around your waist plus it stays warm for up to 6 hours! Their Spoonie collection is shorter and wider than the main range due to feedback from people with chronic pain. Choose from grey, polka dot or leopard print.

3. The ones for your feet (yes really!)

Keep your tootsies toasty with these innovative hot water bottle slippers from Vagabond. With two separate pouches, you’ll never have cold feet again!

4. The cute and cuddly one

Who says cuddly toys are only for children! Hattie Hare is just one of the furry friends you can choose as your new snuggle buddy.

Unlike most animal shaped hot water bottles, Hattie has a smaller and discreet rubber insert in her back, which not only makes her more cuddly but keeps the bottle hotter for longer.
