    1. A two-pack of hand warmers, because sometimes your gloves can't keep you warm enough. And we all know, if your hands are cold, your *whole body* will be freezing. This product is highly rated, thanks to its heating powers of up to 10 hours. (Yes, 10 whole hours.)

    The warmer, held up in one hand

    Promising review: "My feet get cold and my hands get cold, so I tried hot hands within my gloves, and geez, I'm wondering why I waited so long to try them. They are awesome. Highly recommend if you were a person where your fingers and toes get cold. These are the perfect packets that keep them nice and toasty. I will buy again." —IBCNU2

    Price: $5.72

    2. A pair of thermal leggings that are highly rated for being so soft, comfortable, and warm. They're so versatile, you'll find great uses for them every day: outdoors as a layer under your jeans and at home to lounge in.

    The gray leggings, worn by a model

    Promising review: "These leggings are super soft, slightly fuzzy on both fabric sides, warm but not overly hot, and stretch nicely. I work from home and my kids attend school virtually from home and these leggings are comfortable regardless of how we move or sit. I love these so much I own three pairs of them now!" —Tammy

    Price: $9.96 (available in nine colors and six sizes)

    3. A microfleece blanket that you'll wrap yourself with like a happy little burrito at all hours of the day — while sitting in your living room, watching Bridgerton, curled up in bed, asleep, and yes, even during your Zoom calls.

    The blanket wrapped around a happy golden retriever

    Promising review: "Love this lightweight blanket. Soft and warm. Very comfortable to cuddle under. If you're looking for a lightweight blanket to take the chill out, this is wonderful. I got the sage green one, and I am pleased with the color. I highly recommend it." —Sissyhops

    Price: $16.67+ (originally $39.99; available in two colors and three sizes)

    4. A heated mattress pad with 10 heat settings — perfect if you're prone to tossing and turning all night because you *just* can't get warm enough in your cold sheets. You'll sleep so soundly with this brilliant invention, you can't resist turning it on each night.

    Promising review: "If you're in the market for an electric blanket, buy this instead. I bought this one and slept with it for the first time last night. I slept all night!!!! No more cold patches here and there under the blanket. What a nice, even heat. I am SO happy to get the bulk of an electric blanket off me. I love this, I really do. Perfect fit, perfect heat, perfect night's sleep. Happy New Year!" —MaggieofErin

    Price: $82.89+ (available in two sizes)

    5. An electric indoor space heater with three comfort settings, because having central heat is great and all, but it's not that great for your electric bill. This little heater isn't as expensive to turn on every day.

    The space heater sitting on a bedside table

    Promising review: "I love this little heater. It's going to save me money. It warms up my large bedroom, and it's easily portable so I use it in my small bathroom as well. It is perfect and works so well that I keep the thermostat for central set low in the winter time. It's a money saver. Well worth it to me." —Chris

    Price: $26.35 (originally $29.99)

    6. A wind-resistant parka, because cold can quickly turn to freezing once a crisp breeze comes. And did I mention it has six pockets?! Who needs a bag when you have SIX POCKETS. This'll soon become your favorite jacket to wear.

    A model wearing the parka in black

    Promising review: "My husband loves it. He was wearing it to work when his car broke down in the middle of nowhere. It was cold and raining, and the car wouldn't start, so there was no heat for the three hours while he had to wait for a tow truck. He said he was never cold with this jacket. It's very lightweight, and you would not think it is warm because it is lightweight, but it is very warm. Would recommend it to any man (or tall women)" —Bunnywoman

    Price: $39.16+ (originally $229.99; available in brown and in eight sizes)

    7. A Vicks filter-free humidifier that'll help relieve the stuffy noses, clogged sinuses, and dry throats that often come with winter. When you have this in your room, you'll likely sleep so much better each night.

    The humidifier emitting steam

    Promising review: "Vicks Mini Filter Free Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier has helped me get a great night's sleep. I love that it's filter-free, so I don't have to waste money purchasing replacement filters. There is a slot for the Vicks pads that help the whole room smell great. It's very quiet, so it's not disturbing my kids at night. Such a lifesaver during cold and flu season." —Shay13

    Price: $39.99

    8. A rain jacket, because if you're too cool to use an umbrella, you need at least *something* to keep you dry when it starts to pour for two straight weeks. According to very pleased reviewers, this is breathable (so you don't sweat) and it's easy to fold and pack up when not in use.

    Promising review: "This is a tightly woven, extremely flexible and breathable material that won't make you sweat like plastic raincoats. It is just what I was looking for. Came with a nice little carrying bag that you can roll it up into, and the bag has a clip that you can hook to your backpack or belt loop." —HappyInKC

    Price: $38.50+ (available in six sizes and six colors)

    9. A pair of fleece-lined moccasin slippers to protect your feet from the toe-curling chill of your floors. These have anti-slip soles, so you're not falling all day like you're in some sort of slapstick comedy special.

    Promising review: "Bought these for my boyfriend, as my new place has concrete floors. He loves them! They fit true to size and are very plush on the inside and seem to be very well made. They stay on great too, as he wore them while moving furniture in and out of rooms for a few hours. The bottom is sturdy and good for any quick trips to take out the trash or grab the mail." —Bhaley1

    Price: $23.99 (available in seven sizes)

    10. A Jergen's moisturizing lotion for extra dry skin, so your body doesn't prune up from excessively hot showers and exposure to cold, dry air. I use this to moisturize my skin daily, and it has kept the dryness and itchiness at bay.

    The bottle of lotion, placed among personal items

    Promising review: "Finally, a lotion that really does repair dry skin! It's not oily or messy. It's very smooth. I doesn't have a strong fragrance, thankfully. Very creamy and applies easily. Does not ruin clothing. You'll see changes almost immediately, and within a week, my skin IS smooth." —Pennie

    Price: $5.84+ (available in two sizes)

    11. A Neutrogena lip balm with SPF 15 that'll save your lips from chapping and peeling. Although great to use all year long (the SPF protects against summer sunburns), this will especially come in handy during the chilly seasons.

    The balm uncapped and placed against a model's lip

    Promising review: "I have only good things to say about this lip balm. It doesn't smell, has a nice consistency (not too thick/waxy or too thin), lasts a good while, and best of all, I can go hours and sometimes days without feeling an urge to re-apply. Also, I've never had one tube melt on me over the last five-plus years I've been using this." —Lady Libertie

    Price: $3.13

    12. An ice melter to stop frost from gathering on your front steps and sidewalk, sparing you the embarrassment of slipping and sliding in front of the whole neighborhood. Plus, it's eco- and pet-friendly, making it safe for Mr. Floofles to tread on, too.

    The close-up of a hand pouring the ice melter on to the ground

    Promising review: "This product is not only kid/pet safe and safe for my concrete and yard/landscaping, it also works amazingly fast and lasts a long time. In other words, a little goes a long way, and it is the most effective way I have found to safely prevent slips/falls around my front door, walkway, and driveway. I highly recommend. I've used it for a total of four years now." —Nebraskagal

    Price: $14.82+ (available in three sizes)

    13. A leopard-print cardigan sweater so chic, you'll be pairing it with every outfit. Yes, even when you're in your pajamas, lounging at home.

    The sweater worn by a model

    Promising review: "This is the BEST cardigan of this style I have ever owned! I am so pleasantly surprised and will likely purchase it in another color. I can wear it to be comfortable around the house but I don't feel sloppy looking — I still feel put together. I also love throwing this over my lighter-weight tops to extend their use into the winter time." —Holly

    Price: $13 (originally $23.44; available in five styles and four sizes)

    14. An electric mug warmer, so you don't have to reheat your coffee five times throughout the day when you keep forgetting about it. I have this, and it's honestly my favorite — and most used — kitchen appliance. (I use it every day for my morning tea.)

    Anne Felicitas / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I've had one of these for years and absolutely love it and use it every day. It keeps my coffee just the right temperature. The one I've had for years has endured a lot of abuse spilling on it, knocking it on the floor many times, etc. and it just keeps working beautifully. Amazingly durable product. It's one of those rare little devices that solve an everyday problem in a convenient, low-cost way." —HappyCamper

    Price: $13.13

    15. A pair of water-resistant, insulated winter boots that'll keep your feet warm and dry in rain or snow. These are so stylish *and* functional, you'll be putting them on every time you leave the house.

    Promising review: "Love these, as they kept my feet very warm from the slushy and wintry season! Wore them a few times only, but they have worked well keeping my feet warm and dry. The soles are also nice because they have grip." —Bebe

    Price: $34.99 (originally $45.95; available in four colors and five sizies)

    16. A knitted beanie that'll keep your head so warm, you won't be leaving your house without it. Once you try it on, you'll understand why it received 4.7 stars.

    Promising review: "I wanted a knit cap that hung down the back of the head as pictured. This was perfect. Can't beat the price!" —June

    Price: $9.09 (originally $16.79; available in five colors)

    17. A pack of five wool socks that are not only super cute but also super thick and warm. Wear them to any daily occasion, whether you're on your way to work or simply chilling at home, rewatching Friends for the 50th time.

    A close up of the socks lined up together

    Promising review: "These socks are perfect, not thin and not too thick. They fit very well. They keep my tootsies nice and warm. Highly recommend them. The best was the price!" —Marivonne

    Price: $15.15 (available in two styles)

    18. A stainless-steel tumbler for keeping your hot beverages warm while you're out and about. Who wants gross, lukewarm coffee? Not you, and certainly not the 371 buyers who rated this item highly.

    The tumbler held by the lid

    Promising review: "I have been a loyal Tervis customer for many years, but this is my first stainless travel really keeps my morning coffee hot! I received many compliments on the beautiful color, rose gold, and I really like the lid...will definitely purchase again!" —Brooke

    Price: $48.31 (available in five colors)

    19. A set of four coffee mugs so precious, you'll be using them every day just to admire them. Heck, they might just become your favorite cups for any warm beverage (hello, hot chocolate season!).

    The four coffee mugs arranged on a wood table

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with my purchase of these cups. They feel great to pick up have, some weight to them, and they're very pretty. You could also use them to put soup for a cup of soup. They are very pretty and sturdy. I would definitely buy them again!" —MagnoliaLady

    Price: $17.88 (available in two colors)

    20. A pair of thermal gloves that you can wear WHILE using your touch-screen phone! No more taking them off, fingers frozen to icicles, while taking a quick selfie in the snow. These will quickly become your favorite daily pair.

    The gloves placed among personal items

    Promising review: "I took a chance and ordered this glove, and I couldn't believe how comfortable they were when they arrived. They are perfect gloves for driving, and the thermal insulation lining is super comfortable. Super soft and supple leather. I highly recommend these gloves whether it be for a gift or just for no reason at all." —Catmomma

    Price: $12.99 (originally $34.50; available in five sizes)

    21. A pair of zebra-print rain boots with a style that's an adult twist from your childhood (ah, the early 2000s). Wear it to a rainy stroll or a walk down Memory Lane.

    A close-up of the boots

    Promising review: "Love my rain boots. Very stylish and comfortable, even if it's not raining. Now I can do outside chores with out ruining my regular shoes. Craftsmanship is great and the size is true to fit. Great bargain from Walmart." —Wallyworlding

    Price: $18.95 (available in seven styles and four sizes)

    22. A mini fireplace heater, because although your apartment wasn't fitted with a fireplace, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy the vibes. It's highly rated not only for style but also for its ability to heat up a room nicely.

    The heater, turned on, placed in the living room

    Promising review: "Super impressed by this little heater!! We use it in our small camper, and it heats every inch, even the bathroom! Love the fact it's under 1,500 watts, perfect for our camper! All sides stay cool to the touch, and it has a safety shut-off, so I feel very comfortable having this around our small kids and dog. Also used inside the home, and after a while it heated the hole house to a comfortable temp! Very impressed! " —Chelsea

    Price: $39.98 (available in three colors)

    23. A hooded blanket robe, for when you find yourself wishing you could take your blanket with you wherever you go. Well, wish come true: This product is a robe, a blanket, *and* a hoodie! Some reviewers love this so much, they don't want to take it off.

    The robe worn by a model lounging on a couch

    Promising review: "Love this thing! It is so soft, warm, and comforting. What I really like is that it has knitted cuffs that keep sleeves off your hands without being tight but are stretchy enough to easily push up for hand-washing. They rebound nicely and don't stretch out. Also, love the pocket, big enough to carry a phone, Chapstick, Kleenex, etc." —Onlineshopperwoman

    Price: $29.88 (available in two colors)

    24. A two-in-one windshield cleaner and water repellant that you wish you bought sooner, particularly before last weekend's freak rainstorm that offered nearly ZERO visibility. This has been highly rated for keeping windshields clear of blinding rain streaks.

    The cleaner being sprayed on to a windshield

    Promising review: "I've always used Rain-X. The product continues to deliver as expected. When I'm driving only a little over 30 mph and the rain is light, I hardly use my wipers. The rain just simply keeps sliding off the windshield. I'm definitely going to keep buying the product." —Satisfied

    Price: $5.27

    25. A three-setting heating pad that's great for your aching bones (hello, mid-20s!) but perfect for warming up the parts of your body that just get *too* cold during the winter season, like your always freezing feet or your perpetually frozen hands. It's so great, it'll be your daily companion.

    The heating pad placed on top of a sleeper's back

    Promising review: "I can't tell you how much this heating pad has helped me already since ordering it! I love the fact that this heating pad is just the right size for almost any part of your body and that it heats up super fast! It's got three heat settings, low, medium, and high. The best part is that it doesn't shut off on you after sitting on it for three hours! If you are looking for a good and inexpensive heating pad, then I suggest you try this one! I'm telling you, you will not be disappointed!" —JoeswifeErin

    Price: $13.98

    26. A thermal curtain with more than 4,000 5-star ratings. Although great for all seasons, this will help block out the winter cold emanating from frosty windows.

    The curtains in burgundy, hung over white windows

    Promising review: "I found them to be great quality, wrinkle-free curtain panels. The sturdy texture of the curtain panel insulates the room very well from the summer heat wave. I appreciate the lower utilities! An outstanding value for the price. They arrived quickly and were packaged securely." —Laurel

    Price: $9.87+ (available in three sizes and 11 colors)

    27. A pleated scarf praised for its quality, comfort, thickness, and style. It's such a cute addition to any outfit, you'll find yourself wearing it on the daily.

    Promising review: "Great print and amazing fabric! Really happy with this lightweight scarf." —JAmanda

    Price: $8.98 (originally $11.97; available in 12 styles)

    28. A faux sheepskin area rug that's so soft, warm, and comfortable, you can't resist taking a moment to stand on it, just so you can feel the sensation of ~luxury~ (and not cold hardwood floors) against your feet.

    The rug placed on wood floors

    Promising review: "This rug is absolutely beautiful on the side of my bed. Hardwoods are cold in the winter. Long, fluffy, and soft. Beautiful shade of beige. Great shape for an accent rug. Almost like a suede on the reverse to keep it from moving." —Stefpin

    Price: $20.48+ (available in six sizes and 18 colors)

    29. A vanilla and sea salt candle – it crackles *just* like burning wood! Talk about winter cozy.

    Two of the candles with burning wicks

    Promising review: "This is by far my favorite candle! I'm in love. First of all, it lasts forever and the scents to them are amazing. The cracking of the wood makes it even better. It gives you a cozy vibe, specially when you are just hanging out in your room during a rainy day. Would highly recommend this candle!" —Vanessa

    Price: $14.88 (originally $16.87; available in two waxes)

    30. A window insulation kit for blocking the cold drafts and air leaks coming from the outside, while keeping your indoor temperature stable. This product is highly rated for its effectiveness and value for the price, and when you try this yourself, you'll see the 4.4-star rating is justified.

    A man installing the window insulation

    Promising review: "I like the film a lot! The installation was real easy and quick. You wont believe how much cold air that film holds. On windy nights I can just hear a wind blowing through my windows and making the film shake, but guess what? None of that cold air is coming through! Wonderful way to save on winter electric bills! I highly recommend it!" —Ksjch

    Price: $10.49 (originally $16.99)

    31. An automatic milk frother for making winter's best hot beverages, like the lattes you have every morning, the hot cocoas you have every evening, and the occasional afternoon cappuccino.

    The milk frother displayed in front of two cups off cappuccinos

    Promising reviews: "Beyond impressed! Ordered this and gave it a shot —BLOWN AWAY! It is just like the cold foam at Starbucks. Best part is you press a button and walk away, and within a few minutes, it's ready with no work on your part. SO happy I can have barista-style drinks at home. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed." —Jennifer

    Price: $39.99 (originally $59.99)

    With the right items, winter can be loads of fun!
