1. A fuzzy quarter-zip to layer over long sleeves for some much needed warmth. It also has a hood for unexpected snow or rainfall.

Promising review: "I LOVE this jacket! It’s so warm and cozy! I am between a size medium and large and I bought the large. It is a bit oversized in the body, but in a good way - it’s meant to be oversized. This jacket is very warm, so sometimes I just leave it unzipped, and it looks good like that too. This jacket isn’t even my typical style, but it’s so cute and cuddly that it has become one of my favorite things to wear! I washed it like normal and line dried it, and it’s just fine." —hellnokitty

Promising review: "I always wear my hair in a bun or ponytail during the winter because i hate fixing my hair when its always cold so I always resort to a beanie. Some beanies i have fit different so i have to adjust my bun/tail to fit with whatever beanie i decide to wear for the day. I never thought there were beanies that would accommodate my hair until recently. I purchased the metallic blue. Love love love!!! The color was so pretty and now I can wear it with my hair in a big fat messy bun, regular tight bun, or a ponytail. My new everyday go to beanie for winter! I even purchased several more as gifts for family members." —ABB

3. A coffee warmer — perfect to keep on their desk so their hot cup of joe doesn't turn into cold brew while they type away on their laptop.

This coffee mug warmer can heat coffee up to 131 degrees Fahrenheit/55 degrees Celsius (ta ta cold, gross coffee). After plugging the adapter into an outlet, the warmer will work automatically once a mug is place on top and will also stop once the mug is removed #coffeemagic.

Promising review: "My new favorite home gadget! Keeps my coffee warm but can also move it around the house to use as a candle warmer. It heats up the candle from bottom to top, the smell is much stronger than with a flame! I'll confess that the other day I had a cheese dip and thought, let me heat it up (I mean why not, right!?) so I placed in on the warmer and it warmed it up pretty fast and stayed warm for a good while. The warmer is very easy to clean as well. Best part is that it turns on when you place coffee mug, candle on top. When you remove it automatically shuts off. This would be a great gift and the price is awesome!" —REM

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $20.98+ (available in five different looks).

4. A pair of Ugg boot socks because cold feet are a big no-go. These will help them avoid the "sock falling down inside the boot" mishap that is a total buzz kill.

I own a pair of these and SWEAR by them. They're so cozy and are the perfect height for all of my boots. If I wear lower boots, I simply just fold them down to the desired height so they can either be no-show or, if I'm going for a more "leg warmer-esque look" then I keep them unfolded.

Promising review: "Well worth the extra money. Super soft and cozy socks. They kept my feet warm and not sweaty. Very soft on the skin. I wore them on a trip and felt like after all of my walking around in Dr.Martins, they stretched out a bit and got a little loosey goosey. After I washed them they quickly went back to just being another amazing pair of socks. They are a bit on the pricey side but well worth the comfort and warmth that you get. Not like itchy scratchy wool socks." —maudie

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with four day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $18 (available in 15 colors). 

5. A 2-in-1 foot warmer heating pad they can use both as a normal heating pad and for keeping their always freezing toesies toasty.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have chronic kidney disease and my feet have been cold for several years. I decided to try the foot warmer & heating pad because it folded over and heated both the lower and upper sides of the foot while the other foot warmers just warmed the bottom of the feet. What a difference it made for me having both the bottoms and the tops of my feet warm at the same time. I keep it inside my bed so that I can enjoy the warmth as soon as I get in. The warmer itself is so soft and makes me feet feel very snuggly. I am so pleased with the warmer. I find the middle setting gets my feet warm real quick and then I can set it on low to keep it warm. It does everything advertised!" —Kathikat

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $36.96.

6. A towel warmer so when they emerge from their shower they can happily wrap themselves in the equivalent of a warm hug. Pop a bath robe in for after they've dried off so they can bask in the coziness even longer.

Amazon

Promising review: "I gave these as Christmas presents and they were a hit. After a bath or shower it is fabulous to dry off with toasty warm towels or robe. There are plenty of bonus uses for these in Wisconsin winters such as warming blankets, sweaters, socks, or gloves. While you are at it...get one for yourself. They are roomy enough to handle 2 bath sheets or 2 full length robes. You will feel like you have a spa at home." —Coco

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $149.99

7. A windshield defogger sponge in case it gets so cold while they're driving and the heat is making their car windows get all blurry. It can be used wet or dry and won't scratch their windows.

Promising review: "This is my second purchase of the windshield cleaner. These are great for when your windshield is fogged up on the inside and your heater isn't warm enough to do anything about it. Sure, you can use your jacket sleeve, but this does it so much better." —RaiderSixx

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $5.25.

8. A pair of insulated snow pants in case their week is starting off with them snow-blowing the driveway...

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love these insulated pants! I bought them to walk the dog, so I'll have no excuses rain, sleet, snow, wind...whatever hits I'll be ready. I was very surprised with the quality of the material, craftsmanship, and comfort. These were very inexpensive and hit all my must haves....I can not recommend them enough. Update, it snowed this weekend and I walked the dog in 20 degree weather. I was very comfortable, could have stayed outside all day in these pants. Plus they wash well. Still highly recommend!" —Shannon K

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with four day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

9. A heated blanket to keep handy on the sofa or on their bed, because if they're going to take a nap, they better not feel like they're laying bare naked in the tundra...

Promising review: "Although I wish it was cordless, I have it permanently tucked into my couch (in my favorite spot) and on those achy or chilly weather nights, this has been a champ for me. There is a safety internal timer that will shut it off after a while, but all in all, I had to buy a second one as a gift to another family member with back ailments too. Giftable, definitely soft and lightweight. This cape helps me unwind and decompress from the stress affiliated with the back pain I endure." —Honest-D

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $84.99 (available in two sizes and five colors). 

10. Or a weighted blanket they can use when times get dreary and they want to relax and calm down. (As someone with anxiety, I swear by this blanket and it REALLY is a game-changer). PLUS, the weight keeps body heat in.

Blanket is 15 lbs. in weight.

Promising review: "I like that the blanket is not restrictive. The weight is calming and if I wake up during the night, I am able to fall back to sleep easily, whereas without it I continue to be restless. I also like that there is minimal noise as I am also a light sleeper. I loaned this to my husband one evening as a test without telling him what it was and it was the first time his restless legs were still for an entire night. I also liked that it decreased the anxiety I experience with the intense pain I experience during migraine headaches. Although I still experienced pain, I was comforted by the blanket when I usually do not like anything touching me because I become too sensitive to even the air. I will be purchasing several for family members with sleep issues, anxiety, and general sleep hygiene." —Ann

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $59.31.

11. A two-pack of insulated socks that trap heat in and keep the freezing cold out. These double insulated socks are breathable so while they stay warm, they won't have to worry about foot sweat.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I was looking for something for my camping where my legs can be in comfort. The best part is it is unisex. These socks are warmer than other thermal socks because the insulation is better. The experience in hiking, camping, climbing activities is awesome. They keep my feet warm without sweating since they have a breathable moisture wicking & don't smell like cotton socks. I think there is double thickness so they are well crafted." —Aryan

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with four day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in various colors).

12. An oversized scarf that doubles as a shawl they can wear over tops and dresses that has over 12,000 5-star reviews. Time to bundle up (and look chic while doing it).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought this scarf because I am an every day scarf wearer in the cooler weather. I think this scarf compliments every outfit I put it with. It is not small, it is thick, and the colors look exactly like the picture. I like that I can use it as a shawl and not just a scarf. I've received many compliments wearing this scarf. It's long enough where I can tie it in different ways and it doesn't look or feel cheap and it doesn't scratch at my neck. If you are looking for a quality scarf, I would recommend. I will be purchasing another!" —Jennifer Williams

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $12.79 (available in 16 colors/patterns).

13. A set of ear muffs to keep their hair in tact, and out of harm's way of beanies that can sometimes ruin their day's 'do. These will keep their ears super warm, and they'll look cute while doing it.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "These are so soft! I wore them all day outdoors to see a Civil War battle reenactment and they worked just perfectly. The wind may have been blowing and it might have been chilly, but my ears were nice and toasty, and did not get sweaty either. I think my husband just wanted to be near me so that he could pet my furry ears. LOL!" —pcornwallszoke

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $14.95 (available in five colors).

14. A two-piece monochromatic loungewear set because staying comfy, cozy, AND indoors is the move for those of us who get cold quickly. This lounge set is what they'll be wearing while they enjoy the glorious fireplace in their house.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this set so much that I want to buy it in every color! It's so comfortable and cute, fits pretty much perfect. It's a little bit big but in a cozy way so I don't mind it at all! SUPER high quality, way better than I was expecting!!" —Theresa DeLaBarrera

Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

Softwear is a woman-owned small business that specializes in sustainable basics. They are based in Brooklyn, NY.

These are hands down the softest most luxe pair of sweatpants I have ever owned and am honestly debating buying more that's how comfortable they are.

I'm telling you, this is one purchase especially during WFH times that you won't regret at all.

Promising review: "I cannot handle how sturdy and steadfast this powerful little heater is. It easily warms my little apartment, does not overheat, and is cute and little. I would not call it quiet, however, as it does produce a pretty loud fan sound — however, I actually find it soothing." —J Fu

Get it from Amazon for $27.99.
