    1. A pretty pastel mug warmer to keep your tea and coffee warm on days when you're burrowed so far under your blankets that it feels like a law against nature to make a trip to the microwave.

    2. A beloved Carhartt beanie (that has over 70,000 positive reviews!!) to help you stave off the cold all winter long, keeping your noggin both super warm and β€” perhaps most importantly of all β€” color-coordinated to your other winter gear. This comes in so many colors that whoops, you might just buy three.

    3. A pair of warm wireless sleep headphones so versatile you can use them for everything from playing white noise to fall asleep or blasting music on a cold weather run β€” 110% would not be surprised if half the neighborhood outfits themselves with them by the end of winter.

    4. A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender β€” you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores. Basically, your winter-related dry skin issues have officially met their match.

    5. An oversized sherpa blanket hoodie so comfortable you register a change-of-address to the post office as "Inside Of Marshmallow Coat."

    6. A Salt + Sea candle so you can write your way into a glorious self-insert fan fiction in which you are lounging on a beach, something mango-flavored in one hand and some kind of rom-com about to be adapted into a Noah Centineo-led movie in the other.

    7. A sunrise simulation clock to trick your human brain into thinking you're already dappled in the light of a bright, sunshiny day when you wake up, even if the winter sun hasn't quite caught up to your morning routine.

    8. Or a gorgeously designed Hatch Restore sound machine – it works overtime as a touch-controlled smart light, bedtime reading light, sunrise alarm clock, and even a wind down light that helps you get into a healthier sleep routine at night, which is especially important to maintain when it's dark out for so long. Other bedside lamps could truly never.

    9. A four-pack of chocolate mug cake, because I was put on this Earth primarily to spread my mug cake agenda. The other desserts in my pantry are crying, but in winter, I truly only have eyes for warm gooey cake from a mug.

    10. A pair of trendy, affordable winter boots that actually deliver on traction β€” these anti-slip soles have made me, a certifiable Clumsy Individual, feel a lot more steady on my feet walking in the snow and icy pavement.

    11. A moisturizing lavender and coconut hand soap made with aloe vera and a blend of lavender and orange essential oils so you can get your hands squeaky clean without irritating winter dryness on your skin.

    12. A pair of sherpa-lined joggers so warm and comfortable that whoops, they just became your only personality trait.

    13. A bunch of Miracle-Gro "food spikes" so you can restore all the your plant babies to their pre-winter glory. These not only can bring plants knocking at death's door back to life, but they'll continuously feed them for 30 to 60 days.

    14. An Orolay jacket, aka *the* Amazon coat, complete with sherpa-lined hood. You may have noticed a lot of people wearing it last year when it first got popular and it truly lives up to its cozy hype. I can speak from experience when I say I doubt I'll ever rely on another winter coat as much as this one again.

    15. A mesh body exfoliator from LuvScrub that'll knock all your loofahs and washcloths out of the park β€” its large size and unique texture help smooth and clean skin all over your body, including hard-to-reach places like your back, so you can brush away dead skin cells and more effectively moisturize to combat winter dryness.

    16. A rechargeable hand warmer complete with double-sided heat and three different heat settings you can adjust to your environment, whether it's "walking in a winter wonderland" or "everyone in this house is deeply divided on what a regular human temperature is, MOM."

    17. A compact light therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give a lil' boost of energy and happiness to anyone on that work from home beat β€” this UV-free bb has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to your life.

    18. A pair of sleek touchscreen-friendly gloves β€” you'll be so fast keeping up with the group chat even in the cold that everyone will demand to know your ~secret~. (🎢 Maybe they're born with it, maybe it's functional winter gear 🎢)

    19. A super plush faux fur weighted blanket that'll keep you snuggly and warm no matter how much of a tizzy Jack Frost is in outside. It's also made with tempered glass beads to give you the kind of deep pressure that may help reduce anxiety and restless sleeping.

    20. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up in the winter (especially when wearing a face mask!).

    21. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil that you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and painful hangnails you can get when your hands are having an existential crisis about switching from the cold outdoors and the heat indoors several times a day.

    22. A rainbow prism suncatcher you can easily hang to refract sunlight and make a bunch of teensy little rainbows all over the place, making indoors *feel* like outdoors even when it's so cold outside you wouldn't touch it with a stick.

    23. A 3D mouth bracket you can clip to the inside of your face mask to keep you from breathing in fabric on your thicker winter masks (and, of course, when it comes to double-masking per the CDC's new recommendations).

    24. A bottle of the *constantly* out of stock Glossier Solution, an exfoliating skin perfector formulated with three acid groups to "unglue" dead skin from your face and help solve a myriad of seasonal skin issues β€” particularly if you tend to be oily in the summer and dryer in winter.

    25. A bold faux fur collar cardigan to keep you warm, and also keep everyone on the sidewalk on their toes wondering if a celeb is walking by.

    26. A face mask button headband so you can keep the bite of the wind *and* the pressure of mask straps off your ears.

    27. A ridiculously cute microwaveable stuffed animal that doubles as a heating pad to get you through the chilliest months of the year. These bubs are also lavender-scented, which may help with anxiety or insomnia if you need a soothing way to calm down.

    28. An always trendy teddy jacket so you can spend winter achieving your lifelong dream of becoming a sentient stuffed animal.

    29. A gorgeous oversized scarf that has a lot of nerve calling itself a scarf when we all know for a fact that it is truly just an emergency blanket.

    30. A Marshmallow of the Month (!!) subscription box, because the quickest way to shake off the winter blues is to make a whole bunch of s'mores and pretend you're living your summer camp dreams.

    31. An eco-friendly air purifier, because if you're going to be stuck inside with all the same air for months on end, it might as well be top-notch. This reusable filter traps dust, pollen, smoke, odor, and pet dander to help reduce seasonal and pet-related allergies β€” plus, you can add a drop of essential oil to it to make your whole home smell like a ~lavender field~.

    32. An insulated weatherproof and soundproof strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door to keep heat from escaping out of your room, so you'll stay cozy all night long. (It also works great as a sound dampener if you *also* have neighbors who like to watch The Office on full blast at 2 a.m!!)

    33. A Java Sok, aka a reusable iced coffee cup insulator you can use to keep your drink cold *and* your fingers from freezing off. I know some of y'all are the type who are still chugging iced coffee in the snow and I humbly offer you this method to continue your stubborn behavior all winter long.

    34. A portable personalized-sized heater ideal for anyone who wants to shake off the stuffiness of the indoors by sitting out on the porch or the deck for a bit.

    35. A microgreens growing kit if you need some outdoor vibes right now. It comes in two forms β€” one that grows grass that cats LOVE, and another for garnishing on human food. These also happen to be *perfect* for small spaces with low lighting, so you can have your plants and eat them, too.

    36. A windshield ice cover you can lock in place with shut car doors or your mirrors so you can spend your morning savoring your coffee instead of scraping ice off your windshield and rueing the day Queen Elsa was born.

    37. An humidifier/oil diffuser to keep the air in your room from getting so dry you feel like you're somehow in a desert in the dead of winter. It's also equipped with seven different LED colors and a remote, so you can boss it around from all over your room.
