Home Bargains has answered our summer prayers with a new and undeniably genius pillow cooling mat.
You’ll all be aware that the whole country is currently in the grips of a long-awaited heatwave – yet while most of us have been desperately holding out for a bit of hot weather, there’s no denying that it’s simply too hot.
In what could be the most British thing ever, us Brits have instead been sweating uncomfortably and losing sleep over the unusually warm temperatures, after months of complaining about the cold weather.
But fear not, because Home Bargains is here to put your woes to bed (no pun intended, I promise).
Their latest product, a pillow cooling mat, was recently flagged on the popular Facebook group, Money Saving Expert, and it’s safe to say that people thought it was revolutionary.
The mat – which is filled with a cooling gel – can be slipped over your pillow so when you would usually be tossing and turning, your head will be kept refreshingly cool throughout the night.
It’s designed to ‘react to your body temperature and absorb excess heat’, meaning you’ll maintain the perfect temperature as you sleep.
It’s also portable, so you can take it with you to work, place it on your car seat or stuff it in a cushion to keep you cool on the go.
But its cooling properties aren’t just helpful for when it’s hot – they also to help relieve pain and discomfort from injuries. Is there anything this mat can’t do?
And, priced at just £2.99, it’s a complete steal.

Aldi is now selling a ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin and it looks so good
Get down to your local Aldi immediately
Aldi has knocked it out of the park this week with the launch of their ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin.
Yep, it’s the churros and gin combo you never knew you needed.
Now, there’s no disputing the fact that the combination of churros and melted chocolate is definitely one of the more elite desserts out there – but have you ever envisioned chocolate churros whipped up into an alcoholic treat?
Probably not – but, as always, Aldi is on hand to make your chocolatey-boozy dreams come true.
The Churros with Chocolate Gin Liqueur, made by The Infusionist and stocked by Aldi, was brought to the attention of the internet by the food blogging Instagram account, Kevs Snack Reviews.
Of course, Instagram users were very impressed by the new boozy offering, with one writing: “Need to get it for the next cocktail night,” and another tagging their friend while noting: “We need to get our hands on this one.”
Admittedly, this gin may be a little bit sweet for some, but picture it in a gin espresso martini or as a twist on a pornstar martini.
I’ve convinced you, haven’t I?
Priced at £7.99 the chocolate churros gin liqueur is available both online and in stores, joining the likes of Lemon Drizzle Cake gin liqueur, Raspberry Jam Donut gin liqueur, and Salted Caramel Cupcake gin liqueur.
