Do you know someone who’s always cold? Help them endure the winter with one of these warm gifts.
Heated Foot Massager
Help your loved ones sit back, relax and warm up with this heated foot massager. It’s incredible after shoveling the driveway. Extra points if the giftee spends all day on their feet. It has a soft, washable cover and two massage settings, although it can be used as a plain heater too.
Darn Tough Socks
It’s impossible to go wrong with socks for Christmas, especially as a stocking stuffer. The holiday season is the perfect time to stock up on warm clothes for January, February and March.
The Darn Tough Micro Crew Light Cushion Socks are my personal favorite. They’re warm enough for hiking in the snow with microspikes, but light enough for summer too. Strategically placed padding prevents blisters, and stylish designs make them suitable for everyday wear.
A heated blanket is perfect for curling up on the couch with a mug of tea during a polar vortex. It’s like a cocoon of warmth.
This heated blanket is sherpa-lined for extra comfort and coziness. It has an automatic shutoff, five heat settings and long cord power cord, making it easy to use anywhere. The best part? It’s machine washable.
Fuzzy slippers are so much better than fuzzy socks. They don’t slip on wood or tile floors, they protect against stubbed toes and you won’t wake up on laundry day and realize you’re out of clean pairs.
L.L. Bean’s Wicked Good Moccasins are famous for their soft shearling cushion that keeps feet warm but dry. The outsole provides reliable traction around the house.
A hot cup of coffee does wonders on a cold winter morning. But when it cools off, it stops keeping you warm.
Give the coffee lover in your life the ultimate gift: a smart mug. This unexpected but innovative smart device keeps coffee at a set temperature for 90 minutes on a single charge, or all day with the charging coaster.
Blanket scarves look chic but feel like pajamas. Dress it up with a cardigan or dress it down with school spirit wear.
This tie-dyed blanket scarf fits in just as well at the office as the sledding hill. The uncommon pattern makes a trendy statement piece and stands out in a sea of plaid scarves, mittens and gloves.
For someone who isn’t a morning person, a bathrobe is essential. Trading the covers for a plush hooded robe is much easier than facing the morning air head-on.
This machine washable robe with pockets comes in 18 colors. It’s no wonder it earned more than 2,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Pair it with a smart alarm clock to make every morning a good one.
Heated Toilet Seat
This might get a laugh, but it’s a seriously great gift for someone who’s always cold.
A heated toilet seat is one of the newest ways technology can make a home more comfortable. The Brondell LumaWarm heated toilet seat even has a nightlight to replace the blinding overhead light on nighttime bathroom trips.
Microwavable Heating Pad
Cold feet and stiff necks will benefit from this reusable microwavable heating pad. Soft and flexible, it gently molds to whichever body part needs a little warmth.
Since it doesn’t plug into an outlet, there’s no danger of fire danger with this hot compress. It’s cotton on one slide and fleece on the other to help customize the level of heat.
Tea Variety Pack
Coffee, cocoa and tea are all incredible after a day of ice skating and snowball fights, especially when paired with a mug warmer. This Tazo tea variety pack offers a good mix of caffeinated and caffeine-free tea. It has 40 tea bags in 10 flavors, plus honey sticks — a nice touch. It’s a thoughtful gift for someone trying to cut back on their coffee consumption.
