    28 Products For People Who *Love* Winter

    There's a reason winter marks both the ending and beginning of a calendar year β€” because it's awesome.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of anti-slip snow boots that are reliable enough for boot lovers *and* cute and comfortable enough for people who usually prefer sneakers.

    Amazon, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I only got these because it was a Black Friday sale, and for some reason I am very resentful about purchasing boots (I love sneakers too much to function), but now that I've worn them I would have paid full price and then some. They're ridiculously comfortable, keep my feet warm and dry, and I felt very secure walking in them on a day with fresh snow and the day after, when the sidewalks were icy. There was no break-in period, either, which I appreciate because I tend to go on long walks." β€”Emma Lord

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5 -11 and in six colors).

    2. A hooded puffer that's as sturdy as it is warm. A good winter coat should be thought of as an investment, and you certainly get your money's worth with this thing.

    Universal Standard

    Promising review: "I got short version of this coat in the color 'Caramel' this season and it's quickly becoming one of my faves. My only other puffer I'd had since 2012, and it's already so nice to be able to choose which one I'd like to throw on seeing as it's already getting pretty cold where I live in Michigan. The collar zips up super high so you can protect your face from the cold (a feature I really value since ideally I just like my eyeballs to peek out from my winter gear and nothing else) and it has a removable hood that's also so puffy and warm. The thing about the jacket I'm most impressed with, though, is the hardware. Its shiny buttons and zipper feel so strong and long-lasting, but also look really luxurious. I know I'll be wearing this coat for years and years." β€”Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Universal Standard for $228+ (available in two styles and sizes 4XS - 4XL).

    3. A satin-lined beanie to keep your head warm *and* hair soft and safe from friction, because you shouldn't have to sacrifice one for the other.

    Grace Eleyae

    Grace Eleyae is a Black woman-founded brand that also sells turbans, silk pillowcases, scrunchies and other hair-friendly headwear.

    Get it from Grace Eleyae for $24 (available in 11 colors).

    4. A blanket sweatshirt β€” which are three words I've been waiting to say in succession for basically my entire cozy season-obsessed life.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "When I saw The Comfy on Shark Tank I just knew I had to have one. I live near the beach and it is perfect for chilly mornings and cool evenings. I absolutely love mine. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fabric. It feels so luxurious that I want to wear it all the time. I bought myself a navy blue one but I am already thinking of getting a couple more ordered for both my kids. Great product." β€”Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in adult or kid sizes and 10 colors).

    5. Vacuum storage bags for that glorious day you get to pack up all of your warm weather clothes and embrace your favorite time of the year. You'll save a ton of space in your closet, you won't have to fold anything, and these things also make moving so much easier.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of these vacuum storage bags (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I've been going through and purging items and cleaning and preparing for storage items I'm keeping, pre-moving. I love these bags, they make such a difference and you can easily see what's in there...as opposed to my previous storage bags β€” trash bags. I've gotten what took three shelves down to one. Can't complain about that." β€”Samsara

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in four sizes and variety packs).

    6. A color-changing electric kettle that's an absolute necessity for frequent hot chocolate and tea drinkers.

    It oscillates between five different colors and has a built-in tea infuser, because real wintertime OGs know *all* warm beverages slap when it's 45 degrees or colder.

    Get it from Target for $39.99.

    7. And a bottle of Mike's Hot Honey to give your tea or cocoa a sweet and spicy kick. Try this out if you're already into adding honey to your warm beverages. A little bit of spice really enhances the flavor.

    The bottle of hot honey next to a cocktail
    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's just the right amount of heat to make it interesting, but not so hot that it'll interfere with other flavors. One of my peeves about spicy versions of normally non-spicy items is that it's often all about the heat but the flavors imparted by the chiles aren't particularly noticeable or interesting. This honey has a great chile FLAVOR to it, in addition to the heat, but it doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the honey at all. I like it on buttered toast and on fried chicken equally well, and this has definitely become a staple 'sauce' for me!" β€”S. Ferguson

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. Or a four-pack of Starbucks syrups for people who enjoy super sweet coffee. The best part about this is you can enjoy that signature Starbucks taste without leaving the comfort of your own home, which is obviously a huge benefit these days.

    Jasmin Suknanan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I can't stand bitter coffee, so I need to spice things up somehow! I got these syrups so I can recreate some of my favorite drinks at home and they have been game-changing. They've turned drinking homemade coffee into an experience! The set I chose came with two vanilla syrups, one caramel syrup, and one hazelnut syrup. My favorite is the caramel syrup, but the vanilla one is a close second. All you need is a small teaspoon of this stuff and you're good to go." β€”Jasmin Suknanan, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    9. A drawer set to organize all of your various tea and cocoa packets. It'll also look cool as hell if you decide to flex your collection on Instagram.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It allows me to keep track of which tea bags I have and it neatly organizes them. It doesn't take up a lot of room in my cupboard, which is another nice perk." β€”Judi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three colors).

    10. And a beautiful yoga mug to sip your warm beverage of choice from.

    Etsy / TheTriniGee

    Promising review: "Makes me smile and breathe in good air each time I open my cabinet....I reach for it a lot! Keeps my coffee/tea hot. Whimsical and inspiring! Great service, quick shipping." β€”Ksglover1

    Get it from TheTriniGee on Etsy for $20.

    11. Annnddd a weighted drink holder that'll stabilize your mug and prevent spills.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this thing. I was skeptical and actually thought maybe it could be a gimmicky kind of thing but man was I wrong. I'm so glad I took the chance. We have a sectional and there's no room for end tables or anything to set my morning coffee on. This is the perfect solution! It is very solid and sturdy and it also works great. I love that it will hold a regular glass as well as my coffee mug." β€”Schride

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in four colors).

    12. A badass teacup and saucer set – it'll lowkey make you feel like Olenna Tyrell from Game of Thrones as you sip on the tears of your enemies.

    Vulgar Tea Cups

    Winter isn't "coming" β€” it's here!

    Get it from Vulgar Tea Cups for $22.50.

    13. A foaming lavender bath to take full advantage of the days you're snowed in and grant yourself what us winter-lovers like to call a "self-care snow day."

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this stuff soooo much. I have had some rash issues on my fingers ever since I got a full body rash from Downy Unstopables (the worst product ever!!) and had to take prednisone to get rid of it. Ever since I started regularly soaking in the tub with this, I have had hardly any flareups. Something about the ingredients in this particular combination makes my skin sing. Plus, it smells amazing and provides top notch bubbles. Worth every penny."β€”Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $4.87.

    14. Or this shea butter foaming bath bomb if you'd like to support a vegan, cruelty-free, and Latinx woman-owned small business.

    a pink bath bomb with potpourri around it
    Lilac Suds

    Promising review: "The rose scent is gorgeously perfumey and floral without being overwhelming. I could smell it on my skin all night after my bath and it was so relaxing. It also felt so nice on my skin β€” moisturizing without being oily or heavy." β€”Rhi

    Get it from Lila Suds for $7.50.

    15. And a supportive bath pillow in case your soak turns into a nap.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I've recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!)." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two styles).

    16. Or a waterproof Kindle Oasis if you're more of a reader than a napper in the bathtub.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I do like the adjustable amber tint, but I also really like the ability to invert the colors to white print on a black background. I also am really happy to have buttons to turn the page again. It’s great to be able to just keep your thumb in the button and depress it to turn the page instead of having to actually move your thumb a half inch to touch the screen. All that extra movement add up over the years."β€”Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $249.99+ (available in 8GB or 32GB and in champagne gold or graphite)

    17. A heated massager pillow that'll feel freaking UH-MAZING on a cold day. It's like combining all the best parts of a fireplace, a body pillow, and a romantic partner who's good with their hands.

    the black heated massager pillow
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I'm going to try my feet also. I've been wanting something like this for quite some time and I'm thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful."β€”Stephanie T.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    18. A pine-scented candle for anyone who wants to keep their home smelling like Christmas even after the holidays.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you want the smell of a Christmas tree, this is the closest candle I have ever found. When it burns it really does burn the fragrance (unlike cheap candles). I love the smell of this candle, it is refreshing and not too sweet. It is expensive but worth it! So far it has been lasting...last Christmas we would burn it almost all day and all the time and it is not more than maybe a 1/4 gone, if even that!" β€”Jacqueline Shaw

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (available in three sizes).

    19. And a pine-green nail polish so perfect for the holiday season, you might turn your Instagram page into a year-round Christmas stan account.

    Orly

    Promising review: "This color is stunning. It’s a rich creamy dark hunter or racing green. It does NOT appear black with two coats, which I love. It shows up green. Two coats for full coverage. Excellent formula, but did need an initial shake as the yellow and blue components had settled in the shipping process. Totally fine after shaking. This will be perfect for holiday nail art for trees and foliage."β€”Adubz8888

    Get it from Orly for $9.99.

    20. A curtain of twinkle lights to turn your bedroom into the sparkling winter wonderland of your dreams.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." β€”NG

    Get it from Amazon for $15.28.

    21. And a tabletop fireplace that'll complete your simulated night under the stars. The glass panels can even be removed for s'more-roasting!

    1 Man 1 Garage / Etsy

    Promising review: "Bought this as an anniversary present for my boyfriend and he (we) absolutely love it! The care and detail that went into this is amazing! The wood and glass are high-quality and well-packaged and they even included s’mores forks in the kit! So great! Will definitely be purchasing more for gifts in the future!! Keep up the great work!" β€”April Rojas

    Get it from 1 Man 1 Garage on Etsy for $18 (available in two styles).

    22. An electric can opener so you can cozy up with a bowl of your favorite winter soup without the hassle of fussing with a handheld can opener. Are you a classic chicken soup person, or do you prefer a nice chowder? I'm partial to a creamy tomato bisque myself.

    Amazon

    This is also particularly helpful for people with limited mobility, whether they're *cool* enough to appreciate the winter or not. (Get it?)

    Promising review: β€œI love this can opener! I have terrible arthritis and have tried many other openers. This one is amazingly easy to operate. Once you place the can just lower the lever and the can opens by itself. The price is very reasonable. I would suggest to the company to advertise for people with arthritis because it sure makes my life a whole lot easier!”—Cape Cod Gramma

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    23. And a pack of toaster bags, because nothing goes better with a bowl of soup than a warm, gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for the office to end the endless fights about the dirty toaster and toaster oven and THEY DO MAGIC. Everyone is happy, toaster is clean, peace is restored! Food is heated evenly." β€”Marina

    Get three bags from Amazon for $6.99.

    24. A scarf organizer for fashionable winter-lovers who want to show off their collection. If not, this also works for people who need a way to organize their belts, ties, or leggings.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I was skeptical about buying because all the other reviews had pictures with lighter summery/spring scarves but my collection is mostly winter wear. I wasn’t sure if it would hold all my large blanket scarves, but it does. My grandmother saw it and asked me to order one for her! This was the perfect solution to my organization problem." β€”Nikolette

    Get it from Amazon for $10.47.

    25. And some slipper socks to go with your scarves to keep yourself warm and cozy from head to toe.

    Amazon

    They come in 18 different colors, and you'll want to buy them all!

    Promising review: "Last year, I purchased two pairs for myself and two pairs to give to my grandkids. Worn and washed multiple times and they still look new. Having mobility issues, I ride around my home in a wheelchair and Colorado has some cold winters! These allow me the traction I need to propel around my wood floor and I stay so nice and warm!" β€”Cactus Gramby

    Get them from Amazon for $24.25+ (available in various styles and two sizes).

    26. Or a pair of Black TV dad socks if you were raised on iconic shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Sanford & Son, Moesha, The Jeffersons.

    Trinigee / Etsy

    Promising review: "These look great and my husband is very excited about wearing them. Although I am afraid he will try and wear them with sandals so everyone can see them." β€”Bellnzm

    Get them from TheTriniGee on Etsy for $20.

    27. And an electric fabric shaver to keep those socks looking as new as the day you bought them. This will of course extend the shelf life of your favorite winter sweaters as well.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I honestly never even knew this type of device existed. I am so happy I found this and I don’t have to throw away my favorite sweater/jacket. The shaver worked great and went over zippers, seams, and even the little leather loops on it and didn’t damage a thing. This is probably my favorite Amazon purchase ever!" β€”morningfield

    Get it from Amazon for $11.47.

    28. A Muslin Comfort blanket so you can snuggle up under some temperature controlled fabric for a wonderfully wintry afternoon on the couch.

    Muslin Comfort

    If you think about it, the winter might just be an excuse to wrap ourselves up in blankets for four months. Are all winter-lovers really just blanket-lovers in a toxic relationship with cold and flu season??? The world may never know.

    Get this blanket from Muslin Comfort for $149.49.
