    21 Things To Help You Beat The Winter Blues

    Bring on the winter cheer.

    1. A desktop wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man you'll probably be able to learn a dance move or two from while you're snowed in.

    2. A heated blanket that'll make you tell all of your friends "cya in March!"

    3. A candle that smells like your home state for those gloomy winter days when the nostalgia starts to kick in.

    4. A Moog synth vinyl record from the '70s designed to help houseplants grow — and happy plants make happy people!

    5. Mike's Hot Honey, the tasty and versatile condiment that'll give all of your blah meals — sweet or savory — a much-needed kick.

    6. The Fart Launcher 3000 to pass the time by passing gas — via a "stink cartridge" and blasted upwards of 10 feet away.

    7. A wake-up light that simulates a sunrise for those days when the sun is nowhere in sight.

    8. A happy mirror that'll get you to ~fake it 'til you feel it~.

    9. A mini bonsai tree reflection pool to calm your nerves — dunno about you but I'm feeling zen just looking at it.

    10. A glass prism maker you can place in a window and watch beautiful rainbows pour in.

    11. A pack of wiener-dog corn holders to finally make you understand what a "corn dog" is.

    12. A lovably disturbing "Fuggler" plush toy that'll take your mind off your troubles for a minute while you figure out what is going on with this guy's face.

    13. A microwave- and dishwasher-safe mug for your reluctant pivot back to hot (non-cold brew) coffee.

    14. A winter-friendly "movies" beanie that'll give new meaning to the phrase "comfort watch."

    15. An electric pour-over kettle you'll definitely want to leave out on the kitchen counter for all to see.

    16. An Instant Pot to revolutionize the way you cook — and by that I mean, fewer reasons to blow your cash on takeout (and brave the storm).

    17. A massage ball that'll help you destress after a long day, and also probably make a lot of friends.

    18. A luxurious foam spa pillow with seven suction cups that cling to your tub to give your shoulders and neck some much-needed orthopedic support when you're kicking back.

    19. A pimple-popping toy to give you just the satisfying stress relief without the scarring that often accompanies it.

    20. A pair of shearling inserts to prioritize comfort above everything else this winter.

    21. And a countertop garden to give your kitchen some nice ornamental greenery and a hefty supply of herbs and veggies for your next homemade meal. (If you don't get the chance to experience any sort of greenery outside or use your outdoor garden.)
