Cuddle up with Demetrius and Persephone, his ‘n’ hers hot water bottle cosies from Sian Brown

When the nights draw in and it's cold and frosty outside, there's nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa in your pjs and slippers, clutching a hot water bottle and tucking into a yummy box of chocs. These stylish cosies are ideal for making your hottie even more huggable, and the two different designs make a lovely his and hers set. Due to the chunkiness of the yarn, each of these covers knits up really quickly so would be an ideal gift and could easily be ready in time for the really chilly weather.
