Cold Beer Coats for Heartwarming Moments

These funky little jackets are great for the gentleman in your life who cares about his bevvies, and will give him the chance to dress up his bottles like dolls.

Weird on paper, but trust us, it’ll work in practice. The idea behind the gift (aside from being intentionally daft) is actually to keep your hands warm whilst you drink a nice cold beer.
