    1. Fleece-lined leggings described by one reviewer as a magical furry leg dream and wow, what a compliment. These babies will keep you warm in freezing temperatures best described as "I can see my breath."

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The reviewer who says 'it's like wearing kittens on your legs' is spot on. Kittens, small teddy bears, whatever you want to call it β€” these leggings aren't lined with fleece β€” it's low-pile, stretchy faux fur. But you don't look like you gained 20 lbs. when you wear them. I went out to a concert on a miserably cold and windy February evening, with these leggings under a skirt. I'm terribly cold-blooded, and even I felt like, 'COME ON, WIND, BRING IT ON.' There's one potential negative: the seams around the crotch and butt are obvious. " β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 16 colors and sets).

    2. A supremely cozy pom-pom blanket you'll genuinely use all πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ time πŸ‘. Movie nights and Netflix binges will be improved by about 1,000%, and it'll all be thanks to t-h-i-s.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband, dog and I all really love this blanket. The color is as pictured and as soft as described. The pom-poms are sewn on really well and I don't think they will fall off. I have already washed this a couple of times and it has come out good as new. The material does not mat in the wash and drier and quality is outstanding." β€”ShortcakeBun

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 15 colors and five sizes).

    3. An electric space heater because your landlord controls the temperature. You can either a: start scouring Zillow for a new apartment or b: invest in this energy efficient tool, which can fit compactly on your nightstand, has three heat modes, and is what the kids would call ~aesthetic~.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have never written a review before, but I feel compelled to for this product. I moved into an apartment where the radiator schedule is out of my control. It gets very cold in the evening and I was looking for a space heater to warm up my living/office area. I must admit, I was fully expecting this heater to be bigger, as it looks large in the photos. It’s really just a a desk heater. However, it is SO WARM. I’ve only been using it for a day but it really does warm up my entire living/office area. Though I had to dock a star for the false sense of size, I am very happy with my purchase. Not to mention it is very sleek looking and fits the decor in my living space very well." β€”Madiha M.

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99.

    4. A universal plush cover for anyone who feels like they've brushed against Jack Frost's soul whenever they touch their steering wheel mid-January. I understand. It hurts. Thankfully this ~beary~ good car accessory can remedy that problem in a second.

    Promising review: "Looks really cute and is just as soft and fluffy as the pictures suggest. Keeps my hands from burning in the summer, and I have zero doubt it will keep them from freezing this winter." β€”Enoch A. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $17.51.

    5. Smoko slippers that look like potatoes which, tbqh, is reason enough to add to cart. Still have ~cold feet~ over whether or not you should purchase these? They're also heated. Heated slippers inspired by something that makes both vodka and a french fry. You're welcome.

    Dolls Kill

    Get them from Dolls Kill for $32 (originally $40).

    6. A fuzzy sweater lauded by reviewers for being ridiculously cozy and soft. For a more chic version of your favorite fleece pajama top, *this* is just the ticket you've been scouring the internet for.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this sweater. I’ve had it for two weeks and I’ve worn it almost every day. True to size, fuzzy and warm, doesn’t shed at all. Long enough to wear with leggings! I would recommend washing separately, as any lint or fuzz will stick. Bought it in black for now, but will be coming back to buy in every color!" β€”Megan Lynch

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 18 colors).

    7. A value pack of HotHands hand warmers, the cult-favorite product of any poor soul who has been forced to attend their sibling's outdoor soccer games in frigid weather.

    the warmers
    Amazon

    These babies start to activate in as little as 15 minutes; just remove one from the outer packaging and give it a good shake. And if it starts to lose it's warmth, just give it another shake!

    Promising review: "I keep a continual supply of these in my vehicle for several reasons. I drop these in my pockets to warm my hands and body at hockey games but honestly, any time I spend a great deal of time outside in the winter I have them just in case. Once they heat up you can put them in gloves, pockets, or anywhere you need to keep warm (I’ve put them in my knit hat before). Depending on the temps and where you place them, two to four hours of warmth can last." β€”Miss Hollis

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $14.89.

    8. And to up the ante, a HotHands lap warmer that makes it possible to continue sitting outside on your porch β€” coffee mug in one hand, a mystery novel in the other β€” in the dead of winter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Really liked the size of this warmer β€” it filled my entire lap and kept me warm and comfortable all day long. I use hand and toe warmers all the time but they only warm the hands and feet. Until I tried this lap warmer, my legs would get cold when using a camp chair. Liked the fact that it warmed up quickly and didn’t require batteries or pre-heating and was light enough to easily carry with my other stuff. I used the warmer under a blanket which kept me a lot warmer than the blanket could by itself." β€”Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69.

    9. A down alternative duvet insert filled with a high quality polyester that will keep you warm but not *too* warm, aka you won't wake up drenched in sweat. It's even purposely oversized by a tad to prevent your partner from hogging the covers.

    Tuft & Needle

    Promising review: "The medium weight is like a big fluffy marshmallow. My previous Target comforter was old and flat, and all the stuffing collected into little balls. I thought was already pretty thin to begin with, even for an all-season comforter, so I wanted to go big or go home with my new one. The medium weight did NOT disappoint. It's definitely warmer, but I haven't felt like kicking it off of me during the night (although, I am a colder sleeper and also haven't used it in the summer yet). Every time I get a glance at my bed I want to hop in. I love this thing." β€”adozenbakers

    Get it from Tuft & Needle for $155+ (available in three sizes, two colors, and two weights).

    10. A knee-length cardigan coat you'll regret not having purchased, like, 10 years ago. This is perfection in outerwear form: chic, warm, cozy, and can be layered over fancy and casual outfits alike.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review "GUYS, OMG this jacket is definitely a hidden gem. It's so soft and makes you look so sophisticated!! It does shed a little at first, so definitely wash this before you wear it unless you want little specks all over your clothes, I learned the hard way LOL. However, I wore this outfit pictured in 50-degree weather and it kept me warm! This is definitely one of those 'blanket-but-make-it-fashion' pieces HAHA. I love it so much." β€”@Kathy_Vu

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in sizes XS-3XL and 10 colors).

    11. A cup cozy if you're always cold but believe, very passionately, that iced coffee should be consumed 365 days a year. Slip this cotton yarn bebe over any glass to ensure your hands don't freeze.

    the baby mug warmer

    It's also great for preventing your hands from burning when the coffee mug is just a touch too hot!

    Get it from hipcrochet on Etsy for $12 (available in seven colors).

    12. A twill scarf that's basically just a deliciously cozy blanket in disguise. It's ultra soft, oversized, comes in several adorable patterns and hues, and is perfection in accessory form.

    Aerie

    Promising review: "This scarf is legit like a blanket around your neck! So soft and cute! I didn't take it off. It's such a nice cuddly throw for whenever I'm chilly." β€”Brea

    Get it from Aerie for $12.47 (originally $24.95, available in five colors).

    13. Lace-up booties for a fashionable take on the winter boots you typically trudge around in (no disrespect to said winter boots). These beauties have a faux fur tongue, waterproof outsole, a teeny heel for an instant dose of chic, *and* they're currently on sale. Don't pinch me, I don't want to wake up from this dream.

    the brown and white boots
    Soludos

    Promising review: "These are really nice quality and so super chic. I've been stopped to ask where they were from multiple times. They are comfortable too." β€”Patricia K.

    Get them from Soludos for $115 (originally $169, available in sizes 5-11 and in two colors).

    14. A slouchy cardigan made from a luxuriously soft chenille bound to become the caviar of your entire wardrobe. TL;DR: it will feel like a combination of clouds and kittens against your skin.

    Reona

    Reona is a Black-owned business specializing in clothing best described by the following emoji: 😍. Ready yourself for gorgeous loungewear in neutral palettes you'll want to wear 24/7.

    Get it from Reona for $145 (one size fits most, available in two colors).

    15. Sherpa-lined sweats to make your legs feel as if they're being enveloped by a large, fluffy bathrobe. If you're dreading the winter and are perpetually cold (#me), then these babies are great β€” bonus points for a tapered leg that sets these apart from your oversized pajama bottoms.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm always cold in the Wisconsin winters. These toast me up and are perfect for lounging. So cozy." β€”Jodi Larson

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors).

    16. A heated seat cover that heats up within two minutes because *shivers* that dreaded warming up period in your car feels like an eternity. This plugs right into the cigarette lighter and has three heating options, which means hooray! My very old automobile can feel like it was made in this decade.

    Seat covers added to seats in car
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this heated seat for my vehicle! Cold winters with leather seats are not a great combination and this soft seat heats up within two minutes of plugging in and stays warm. I am a naturally cold person who usually cannot get enough heat, but this gets almost too warm where I can shut it off before my 30-minute drive to and from work is over. I love it for my lower back pain as well. I will use this seven months out of the year for sure! Excellent product!" β€”Stevie

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    17. A pair of 100% opaque tights for the fashionista who insists on wearing a mini dress despite the fact that it is friggin' frigid outside. These babies are lined with ultra warm fleece and won't clash with any Insta-worthy outfits.

    A model in the black tights
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought these for myself and my mother and daughter-in-law to wear to an outdoor wedding in Montana. There was snow on the ground and we all had cozy, warm legs! We were all amazed as to just how comfortable these tights are. They feel like heaven when you slip them on. Our ages ranged from thirties to eighties and they fit each of us perfectly. I wish these came in more colors. These are absolutely the nicest tights that I have ever worn!" β€”Lync

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in two sizes, black and navy; you can also get two pairs for $29.99).

    18. An ultra warm cable-knit two-piece set that will make re-watching The Vampire Diaries for the 90th time this year feel like, well, a luxurious experience. Matching loungewear = a foolproof way to feel fancy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this outfit! It's beautiful and perfect for all weather. It's warm and hasn't fallen apart on me even though it's made of yarn. I would suggest this set to anyone." β€”Dominique

    Get it from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in sizes S–L and 20 different styles of sets).

    19. A pair of Ugg shearling slingback sandals truly worth the splurge according to over 5,000 Nordstrom reviewers. These trendy beauties = a warm hug for your hooves.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland

    Promising review: "The slippers were thicker in their sole than I expected, sort of like platform shoes, but I actually very appreciate the height. They are sooooo comfortable and keep your feet warm, even without socks. The only down side I feel is that they seem to fit a size larger than I would like. I like my slippers to fit snug, and I think if you also like that kind of fit, go a SIZE DOWN." β€”Nordstrom reviewer

    Get it from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and nine colors).

    20. A puffer jacket crafted from a water-repellent, wind-resistant Japanese ripstop fabric and 100% responsibly sourced goose down. This hunk of perfect outerwear will keep you nice and toasty in temps of up to -30 degrees C / -22 degrees F, best described as "I can't feel my face" weather.

    Aritzia

    Promising review: "Incredibly light and incredibly warm. I had to but my mom one because she kept on stealing mine, because it is that good and that universal." β€”Ella W.

    Get it from Aritzia for $250 (available in sizes XXXS-1X, 19 colors, multiple finishes, and multiple lengths).

    21. A dryer-safe pet bed to keep your four-legged pal (your most important priority, really) feeling as comfortable as possible. This is designed with a padded bottom and attached blanket so they can burrow all they want. And I realize that this might not keep *you* warm β€” but it will keep your heart warm knowing they're cozy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat is literally obsessed with this bed. He loves the option of the blanket flap and also loves to rest his head on the edge. He fits perfectly in the middle indentation! Soooo soft. And so warm during the winter months." β€”M.M.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95+ (available in eight colors and two sizes).

    22. A pair of sherpa-lined slipper socks so magical, they were actually featured on Oprah's Favorite Things in 2017 which tells you...everything you need to know.

    BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Yes, I spent $25 for socks and yes, they are worth it. I wear women’s six in shoes and they’re the perfect snugness. No slipping off and the fleece inside is heavenly. Gonna wear these every day." β€”Sarah

    Get them from Amazon for $19+ (available in two sizes: adult regular and adult large and 66 colors and patterns)

    23. A fleece hoodie dress that I intend on buying/hibernating in all winter long. 🎢 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎢

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is very comfortable and cozy for the winter. I am tall and plus size. It falls halfway down my calves. It’s very thick and nicely made. I just throw it on to run errands and look cute while doing it. It’s as comfy as a pair of sweatpants but way more stylish. I love it and will be buying other colors." β€”Theresa Casanova

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 10 colors).

    24. A draft-blocker to keep unwelcome drafts from under your door out and precious, warm air in. Not only will this save $$ because you won't have to blast the heat (or AC) to its strongest setting, but it's also fantastic for blocking outside noises. Here's looking at you, roommate still blasting their best of 2020 Spotify playlist.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I specifically purchased this item because I could feel a draft coming from under my front door. I live in the NE so a draft can be -10 degrees some days during the winter. I cleaned the install area well and let that area dry for a bit. I then measured out my door w/ the strip and marked the spot with a pencil (measured twice to be sure!). After cutting and installing I used a paper towel to rub and press the draft stopper into the door for at least five minutes. NO DRAFT." β€”RemyJax

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    25. Or! A five-window insulation kit that seals out the cold β€” all you'll need is measuring tape, scissors, a hair dryer, and a few minutes of time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "SORCERY!!! What a difference this has already made! Using an infrared thermometer, the temperature inside went from the mid-50s to 66.7 within minutes of installation. The furnace was always set to the high-60s until we installed the film. Now it's set at 63 degrees, and the furnace is blowing less frequently and for shorter periods of time. Another bonus to this product: the road noise from outside now sounds muffled, so less noticeable/annoying. That's HUGE. And as a side note, the one I bought was, in fact, crystal clear." β€”Public name

    Get the five-window kit from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in kits for one large window, three windows, and 10 windows).

    26. A Uniqlo heat-tech turtleneck perfect for layering under *any* top thanks to an ultra thin fabric that doesn't look or feel bulky. Snowboarding, skiing, snowball fights in your yard β€” this works like magic to keep you feeling warm, even if you are being pummeled with literal ice.

    instagram.com / Via @uniqlousa

    Promising review: "I'm working from home and don't want the heating on all day so I bought two of these tops to see whether I could stay warm with just clothes. I have some scoop-neck Heat-Tech tops, which are great, but the turtleneck design of these ones makes them warmer. They're warm without being at all bulky and they're just what I wanted." β€”SusanPLondon

    Get it from Uniqlo for $19.90 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in six colors).

    27. A cult-favorite Orolay parka to help you thrive through even the most frigid of winters; this is designed with a cozy sherpa-lined hoodie, deep pockets to keep your hands nice and toasty, and the perfect midi length to make sure your ~assets~ are covered.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." β€”Zhure

    Get it from Amazon for $107.99+ (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in five colors).

    28. Hunter shearling insoles with the witchy ability to turn any shoe into one that feels appropriate for winter. Low-top Converse, come hither.

    reviewer photo of the insoles
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect addition to my rain boot! I was battling cold feet on rainy Connecticut days until I cam across this product. It makes a world of difference. I'm not a big fan of chunky socks and this eliminates needing wool socks." β€”Miss Sarah

    Get them from Amazon for $23.10+ (available in sizes 5–13).

    29. A chunky knit satin-lined winter beanie for keeping your noggin warm in less-than-toasty temps *and* for not damaging your 'do in the process. The satin lining curbs damage, prevents moisture loss, and won't compromise your curl pattern or style.

    Beautifully Warm

    It's also super stretchy to fit your hair! Beautifully Warm is a Black-owned business that makes satin-lined hats, backless caps, and more.

    Promising review: "I purchased this in December and was skeptical but let me tell you. It was the best purchase ever. Talk about saving my natural hair and not messing up my hairstyle. I love this cap and will be purchasing more. It's a game changer. Wished I would have saw sooner. Plus it keeps my head warm. Others says it big but it's OK cause it slouches and when I go to the salon and get my hair curled I throw it on and I live in Minnesota so the weather does a number on our type of hair. That satin-lined hat keeps my head warm and my style tight....." β€”hlc1976

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 10 colors and packs of two).

    30. A Mr. Coffee mug warmer perfect for slow drinkers who prefer their caffeine hot, hot, and hot β€” even if they poured it hours ago. Prepare to feel your soul be warmed with every single sip.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's going on a little over a year since I got this coffee warmer and I felt I needed to let everyone know that this is the best coffee warmer I've gotten. I work 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it is on the entire time, five to six days a week. It keeps my tea at just the right temperature. Not scalding or room temperature like other warmers I've purchased. The 60-inch cord is long enough to go across my large desk. The hot plate is 3.25 inches in diameter, making it the right size for even my large bottomed coffee mug. The entire warmer is 5.2-by-8.6 inches, so it's not cumbersome having it sit on my desk. This was a great purchase, I'm glad I got it." β€”Christin Fern

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    31. A ChappyWrap blanket to leave you with a *touch* of summer on even the dreariest of winter days. This is reversible, machine washable and dryable, won't pill, and is inspired by ~the Cape and Islands~. Draping this around your shoulders = feeling instantly transported to Cape Cod and Provincetown.
