The hot water bottle is quintessentially British.
When the Queen goes abroad, she always takes her own and Gladstone went went to bed every night with a hottie filled with tea!
So bring it back because...
*You can buy bottles which work without water - a sure sign that they are at the cutting edge.
*You can strap them to your body to quell lumber aches and even cure hangovers.
*Eskimos are so desperate for hot water bottles that women are frequently offered in exchange (not really).
*They are a super save on the heating bill.
