For my hard to buy for husband in our FREEZING house!

I like this a lot but I want a traditional bottle not those microwave beans...

tassisssss Tue 30-Nov-10 23:22:57

scurry, quite like but maybe a little traditional and over budget (realise I didn't set budget, it's as cheap as possible, I mean honestly what a boring thing to spend money on!)

ja9 Tue 30-Nov-10 23:23:26

found it!?

scurryfunge Tue 30-Nov-10 23:24:18

Oooh, I like those, ja9

tassisssss Tue 30-Nov-10 23:25:13

just not as nice as the JL one...

ja9 Tue 30-Nov-10 23:25:22

that's a really good price for that cable knit one...

ja9 Tue 30-Nov-10 23:26:26

the john lewis one is undoubtedly gorgeous...

tassisssss Tue 30-Nov-10 23:27:16

ah options, thank you all!

your last one is lovely ja9...

tassisssss Tue 30-Nov-10 23:28:13

The JL ones also has beans and that's not an option. The ebay one is also under a tenner which i'm liking!

under a tenner is deffo good. but it's the kind of thing you buy once ; he'll probably have it for the rest of his days, and so you're going to be looking at it a lot, so you can justify an extra few quid grin

You could buy a basic bottle and some fleece in the pattern of your choice and make one. That's what I'm doing for my OH.

BrokenRing - I don't sew (well apart from Beavers badges and the very occasional button if I really have to!). I feel it's important to have things that I Just Don't Do.

I have considered asking my lovely mother to knit us covers!
