Air Conditioned Pillow

You know how when it’s really hot at night, your pillow gets all roasty and makes your head feel even hotter?

Even though they’re made of rattan, they’re woven in a way that makes them nice and springy. Of course, you have to sleep on your back if you don’t want to wake up with Wicker Face, but I think that’s a small price to pay for cool breezes wafting around your head all night long…
