    Promising review: "Nice quality shearling insoles. I have LL Bean house moccasins which are several years old and I just place a new insole into them each year. These are very nice and make my lovely old moccasins feel like new again. I’ve been using them every day since I got them last November and so far they are holding up very well." —Bianca K.

    5. An oversized scarf that's one part fashion and two parts a shield from the winter winds smacking you.


    Promising review: "Looks exactly like the one I was going to buy from Nordstrom and half the cost!!!! You won't be sorry with this purchase if you're looking for a blanket scarf." —Karen B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 12 styles).

    6. A mug warmer to keep your coffee hot, no matter how cruelly cold your office gets.


    Reviewers say it helps to top your mug with a silicone lid.

    Promising review: "I bought this to keep my tea warm. I figured I could use it on the cup, but actually decided to try it on the pot. I have a small 24 oz pot and it stays quite hot to the point where I have to let it cool a bit before I can drink it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    7. A thick Carhartt beanie, because keeping your noggin warm does a world of difference.,

    This hat has over 5,700 positive reviews on Amazon, so what are you waiting for?

    Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It is thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year round in Dallas or Chicago. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 30 colors).

    8. A set of flannel sheets so you can go straight from your flannel shirt to your bed and never have to experience the pain of being completely flannel-less.


    Promising review: "Very nice looking sheet set, and soft as can be. They are thicker than expected, and seem like they will last a long time. So far we've only washed a few times, but they still look brand new. Other brands tend to fall apart quickly, so I'm optimistic." —Dracula

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and eight patterns).

    9. A pair of fleece-lined leggings that are basically just blankets for your legs.


    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in eight colors).

    10. A throw blanket so snuggly, you'll find yourself fighting over it with family members and pets alike.


    Promising review: "I really love this throw. It is soft and just the right amount of warmth. The throw is also 100% polyester and washes and dries nicely. It also looks just as nice at the picture. It does shed a bit. I am hoping it sheds less and less, but for now it is not that much." —Jacqueline L.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 10 colors).

    11. And a fuzzy pet bed so you can reclaim your favorite blanket without leaving Fido out in the cold.


    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in 15 colors).

    12. A baby wipe warmer, because there's nothing your baby will hate more than a cold wipe shocking them awake in the middle of the night.


    Promising review: "I love this thing. I’m SO glad I got it. My child is two months old and we’ve been using it since we got home and there’s been zero mold, it’s super easy to fill, holds a whole pack of wipes, has a nice long cord, a little light, and locks on the sides of the bottom lid to keep it down when pulling out wipes. Now, when I use cold wipes in the daytime, they bother my hands because I’m used to the warm wipes, so I can’t imagine how nice it is for my little one to have them warmed up. It heats up only on the top of the lockable portion of the warmer. Not too hot, not too cold and no little hands can get into it as long as it’s locked. The only issue (which isn’t huge) that I’ve run into is that when the wipes get low, the inside gets pretty hot. This is fixed as soon as it’s filled again. I was so indecisive on this issue and I’m so glad I decided to splurge." —BR

    Get it from Amazon for $20.68.

    13. A pack of thick, patterned socks that will keep your feet warm and also just looking really festive.


    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $13.99.

    14. A personal heater so you can stay warm even when the rest of your office is a tundra.

    15. A heated pad to bring to the bleachers for all those dreaded winter sports games.

    The Grommet

    16. A bear-y adorable pillow and blanket combo that comes with hand pockets so your paws can stay warm, too.


    Get it from Amazon for $18.69.

    17. A heated car seat cover, because everyone deserves a nice, toasty bun.


    The soft velour covers come with three heat settings.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.45.

    18. A microwaveable avocado you simply ~hass~ to have when the temperatures drop.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29 or get an owl from Amazon for $13.72.

    19. A towel warmer so luxurious, you'll actually want to get out of the shower.


    It warms towels up to 120 degrees in just ten minutes.

    Promising review: "Love putting my clothes in on cold days when getting ready for work. Great for towels fresh out of the shower and then jammies while you get ready." —Piglet

    Get it from Amazon for $149.95.

    20. A portable crock pot you can bring to work so you can enjoy a hot meal without waiting in line for the communal microwave.


    This 20-ounce crock pot has an easy travel lid with a handle so you can grab it and go. Use it to reheat leftovers, soups, oatmeal, and more. The outside doesn't get hot while it's plugged in, so you don't have to worry about setting your cubicle on fire.

    Promising review: "I've had this same crock-pot for about four years now and it has saved my life! I love it so much and it works wonders. I actually leave the outside part in my office and take the food container part home with me. I wash and clean it then put it back in my lunch bag. It just makes life so much easier. I also prefer warming my food up in this crock-pot than using a microwave. Best part is I could leave it on for two hours straight and not having to worry about anything. My food is nice, tasty and warm. This is just amazing!" —Babygal422

    Get it from Amazon for $21.94+ (available in four colors).

    21. Touchscreen gloves, because there's no way in hell you're going to take your hands out of their warm protection just to text back Aunt Carroll.


    Promising review: "Overall: I think these are great winter gloves! These gloves are nice and lightweight, but warm for the winter. I tried them out with my cell phone and iPod. Both responded as if I wasn't wearing gloves. Can I just say that I really love that I now have gloves that I don't have to take off to answer my phone? Because that's awesome!" —GrayGoose

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95.
