    Promising review: "LOVE this sweater and have purchased it in more than one color! The feel of it is amazing, it's very warm and cozy, and looks absolutely GREAT. Works extremely well for both casual and more dressy occasions. Highly recommend it!" —DMC28

    Get it from Everlane for $95 (available in sizes 2XS–XL and 13 styles).

    2. A five-window insulation kit for anyone who still feels cold air blowing through their window no matter how high the heat is blasted. I need this!

    Plus, of course, you stay warmer!

    Promising review: "SORCERY!!! What a difference this has already made! Using an infrared thermometer, I found that the temperature inside went from mid-50s to 66.7 within minutes of installation. The furnace was always set to high 60s until we installed the film. Now it's set at 63 degrees, and the furnace is blowing less frequently and for shorter periods of time. Another bonus to this product: the road noise from outside now sounds muffled, so less noticeable/annoying. That's HUGE. And as a side note, the one I bought was in fact crystal clear." —Public name

    Get the five-window kit on Amazon for $4.23.

    3. A v warm Carhartt hat to promptly end the ice-numbing pain of a cold winter without a proper hat.

    Promising review: "My head was so cold. Sometimes the ice that formed on my skull was so thick, it weighed my head down, causing me to stumble forward into the snow. I was in and out of consciousness, wandering the streets, desperately off-course from my origin or destination. A man in blind pursuit of comfort, forever stumbling forward. These days were not my brightest. When my hat finally arrived, I was in disbelief. Could I, a cold-headed man, ever experience true comfort the way I once was able? Before I knew it, my hands had guided the hat over the crown of my head and down around my ears. And my bone-chilled skull, my ice-cold head, that iceberg mind was warm again. Heat of solar intensity radiated through me. My 'hat' is off to this hat, but not seriously because I will never take it off! I remember what it's like to not have heat on my head, I'm not going back." —Nacho Nova

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in 26 colors).

    4. A pair of fleece-lined jeans so you can build yourself a nice cozy outfit for the day without too many layers.,

    Promising review: "The perfect winter jean! Such a cute, modern, flattering fit. Fits nicely on the hips rather than way up under my boobs like Carhartt's do. Extremely soft fleece material that keeps me very warm in the Colorado winter. I definitely recommend these jeans for anyone wanting to stay warm and look cute." —sara

    Get them from Amazon for $33+ (available in waist sizes 25–34 inches, all 30 inches long; and three colors).

    5. An asymmetrical wrap sweater in a nice wide knit you can wear under your coat or just on its own!


    Promising review: "I don’t usually write reviews but I had to about this sweater because the clothing on Amazon can be so unpredictable! It’s perfect! Came just like the picture, nice wide knits, perfect thickness! Best purchase I’ve made in a while!" —Sarah Chun

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 19 styles).

    6. A thick fleece blanket that'll keep you snug and toasty as you doze off for the night.

    Promising review: "My review is four years late. But I must say, this blanket has held up so well. It's still so soft. So durable and just plain warm. I love this blanket so much. And an added bonus is all three my kitties love it too. So after four years of cats kneading it, having kids play on it, cats play on it, using it to wrap TVs during moves, being washed many times over, and just usual usage, it's still an amazing blanket. Highly recommend." —Nira

    Get the queen size on Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and six colors).

    7. And an incredible weighted blanket thousands of people swear by for helping with anxiety, stress, and nightmares, so you can sleep even better with this additional layer in your bed.

    Promising review: "I love this light. It makes me feel way better when it's grim and dark and wintery. It's very bright, and just what I was looking for. I guess my cat missed the sun too, because she makes a point of lying in front of it when it's on. Light therapy for elderly cats: highly recommended. Light therapy for people: also recommended." —Jessa

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "My wife and I gift each other from here all the time. She was a little worried they would not fit the thick walls of some of our mugs, but they did perfectly. Softer cookies go on them very well, as do marshmallows. We also liked the idea of pretzels, but have not tried it just yet. Thanks to UG for bringing us awesome USA-made items like these" —Charles

    Promising review: "The tray was beautiful and was exactly as advertised. It looks great! But the seller went above and beyond by including an extra gift in the shipment - a soap saver bag.

    Promising review: "Extremely impressed with the high quality and great price of this scarf. DOES NOT look cheap...I own an Acne Studios wool scarf and would say while this one is a bit lighter weight (still super warm and cozy) it is comparable in style, color and quality to my Acne scarf. Would definitely buy again—both for myself and as a gift." —Natalie
