For the friend who feels the cold, a knitted hot water bottle is the perfect secret Santa present. The rubber bottle keeps the water warm but the knitted cover makes cuddling it comfortable.
Available in hedgehog or owl designs. As long as the whoever you’re buying for loves cute animals, there should be no problem. And if they don’t love cute animals, maybe they don’t deserve a present.
