Fighting over the duvet is now battle that both sides can win.
When two people get together they do not automatically become entwined as one, sharing the same tastes and interests. I like a Marmite and egg sandwich, my wife categorically doesn’t.
It therefore stands to reason that two people who share a bed may have radically different duvet needs. Yet for decades couples have compromised by sharing a single duvet.
The brilliant comedian Mickey Flanagan commented on this very fact on the Jonathan Ross Show in November 2017. Mickey and his wife share an eight foot wide bed, with two separate mattresses (soft for her, firm for him) and a his and her quilt that his wife can layer to combat the cold while the hot blooded Mickey makes do with a single layer. He said it had saved their lives as they were contemplating separate rooms or even separate houses.
His and Her (or Partner) duvets actually couldn’t be a simpler idea and, quite frankly, it’s odd that they haven’t been around forever. In a nutshell they’re one duvet, split down the middle with a different tog rating on each side. One side could be a 2.5 tog while the other is up there at 15!
They are just like regular duvets and come stuffed with the usual fillings like goose down and duck feather. Or you may prefer Dacron Comforel Allerban, a synthetic, down-like ball fibre with anti-bacterial properties. Regardless of the stuffing, if you like it hot and your partner likes it cold then you can both be satisfied at the same time.
