    1. A fleece-lined balaclava that'll actually look cute and keep you warm as heck. It's windproof and I neeeeeed it.

    Promising review: "Oh but I love this product. And I could not have appreciated it more when I stepped out in the frigid cold subzero temperatures of Minneapolis. This kept my head warm and toasty, and I felt no cold at all. On my head at least. The face cover stayed put so I didn't have to breath in any icy air. A life saver for sure. It's also very stylish and classy, and looks great with any coat or poncho. Love it!" —Bells

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (three colors).

    2. A pair of knit tights cozy enough to wear on their own with a sweater, or to layer under jeans when it is just way too cold outside and numb thighs are


    Promising review: "These tights are a great fit. They go really well with my sweater dresses and they keep my legs nice and warm with the chilly weather coming in! They don't squeeze my waist, the bottoms have a great sock shape to them so that my heel feels like it has a little extra padding, and my toes don't get all bunched with the thread line. I really enjoy the way these look and feel!!" —Bobbie Vint

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in XS–L and six colors).

    3. And a pair of thermal fleece running tights for anyone who has not been blessed with cold-triggered asthma, and can still run/cycle outside in the winter!

    Promising review: "I am a newbie to running but have been cycling for a while and have never looked into tights for colder weather. These tights fit the bill for both! I am 61 years old and was thrilled that the top does not roll down like my yoga pants and doesn't ride up while running! They are easy to get on and the zippers at the ankles are a great touch! I am very happy with these tights and look forward to my winter runs!" —Saundra Mayhew

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and six colors).

    4. A super soft, lightweight shawl so you can feel like you're embraced in a warm hug in the freezing office, and still look professional.


    Promising review: "It kept me warm and stylish all evening. SO glad I bought it." —Amanda Purser

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 11 colors).

    5. A thick wool scarf perfect for bundling up in when it's time to head out into the frigid air 😬. It's warm but also not too bulky!


    Promising review: "The quality is very good. The weight is medium with a nice drape to it. It is warm without bulkiness, and it folds up small to take along in a carry-on for planes and shoulder seasons abroad." —Palmer L Skoglund

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 13 colors).

    6. A rechargeable hand warmer that'll make you say "where have you been all my life?!?" This babe will keep your hands warm and it can charge your phone at the same time.


    Promising review: "This is an absolute lifesaver! I have season tickets for my local NHL team, and it gets so cold in the arena but I really don’t like to wear gloves. I figured I would give this a try, and it’s amazing. I can warm my hands and charge my phone. It’s absolutely perfect. It’s a great size and lightweight. This would also be great to take when camping or hiking. I may have to buy a couple more of these for gifts!" —CKS

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in three colors).

    7. A pair of smart phone–friendly thermal gloves so you can warm your own heart by texting your pals, and not sacrifice your precious fingers to the cold while you're at it!


    Promising review: "If you're like me; you are a huge Wu-Tang Clan fan, but struggle to keep your hands warm when throwing your 'W' up during the cold winter months; your search for the perfect gloves is now over. I have searched far and wide for a glove which provides both warmth, and allows for the right amount of dexterity required for the physical manifestation of the Wu-Tang logo. Most manufacturers fail to even mention the capability of their gloves in this regard, so imagine my joy when I saw from the product image that these gloves were specifically designed with the discerning Clan member in mind. Suuuuuuuuu." —Erica Ivy

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes M–XL and six colors).

    8. An extremely cozy blanket to snuggle up in at home and picture in your mind as motivation when you're struggling through the snow on your commute home.


    Promising review: "I love this throw blanket so much! I use it on my twin bed. Michigan winters can make for some really cold nights. This took care of the problem while being super cute, super soft, and perfect for a twin bed." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six colors).

    9. A retro-style electric kettle worth the investment. Say hi to steaming hot water for tea in no time at all, and never forget that the kettle is on again.


    Promising review: "I love this! I’ve used it way more than I thought I would, it’s better than the standard teapot used on the stove. I’ve used it every night for a month, sometimes twice or three times a day. I love the ability to see how much water is in it, the temperature of the water, and when the machine is on; the lever turns red. It automatically clicks off when the water is hot enough, so I don’t worry about forgetting the kettle is on! The color is beautiful and the retro look matches my kitchen perfectly. Everyone that comes over comments how beautiful it is." —Chimney161

    Get it from Amazon for $51.49.

    10. A v warm Carhartt hat for anyone who wants to end the ice-numbing pain of a cold 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 $12.99+ (available in 26 colors).

    11. A pair of heated unicorn slippers your always-cold feet shall swear by. Freakin' adorable.

    These babes will fit up to a women's size 12.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my wife because her feet are always cold, and she likes fun things. She hasn’t stopped praising these; apparently they are fantastic. I would have to say she recommends them!" —jason burt

    Get them from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in two colors).

    12. A beautiful wool topcoat I absolutely need in my life, as will anyone with a desire to be a warm, stylish ray of sunshine all winter long.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $136.80 (available in sizes 0–24 and eight colors).

    13. A pair of velvet joggers so you can ditch the thin cotton ones and stay warm while lounging around the house!


    Promising review: "Believe it or not I bought these for my mother who is approaching 90 years of age. The color was perfect for an expensive wool sweater she has been wearing quite a bit and her legs are always cold! She was surprised when she saw them, loved the fabric, and put them on the next time she wore the sweater! She liked them so much I gifted her the real blue ones I initially intended to keep." —California Native

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in sizes S–3X and 25 colors).

    14. A heated seat cushion featuring three heat settings and lumbar support to heat up your whole body on the most vicious of frigid mornings.


    The cushion is powered by your car's 12-volt DC outlet.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.37.

    15. A geometric fleece pullover perfect for layering under a winter coat to stay cozy.


    Promising review: "I ordered the blue and it’s exactly as described. I bought an XL. For reference I am 5’6", 36D, and size 10 waist, and it fit perfectly. I will definitely order another in a different color! It’s super soft, and I can’t wait to wear it when it gets cold out." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $6.59+ (sizes S–3XL, six colors).

    16. A pair of thermal sweat pants who are just as serious about keeping you comfy and toasty as you are — you might never take them off once you put them on!


    Promising review: "These pants are wonderful! I've worn them every day since they arrived. They're super comfortable, warm, and very nicely made. Mine retained their shape and size in the normal washer and dryer cycles. I love the color (red) as well." —makaloco

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 14 colors).

    17. A homemade flannel heating pad cape you can heat up in the microwave and enjoy the deep warmth you deserve at the end of a long day. It also comes with an aromatherapy spray to infuse the pad with amazing smells!


    Promising review: "I am so thankful for having this item on hand when a bad cold struck! Heavenly warmth. This was so comforting and cozy, thanks!" —

    Allison Gullins

    18. A lined knit jacket that'll zip up tight and keep body heat where it belongs = close to your body!

    Free People

    Promising review: "I love the look of moto jackets, but I don't really like wearing leather. This is the best of both worlds. The jersey material is very soft, but the jacket is also lined so it has some warmth to it. I initially ordered my usual size, small, but it was very fitted, so I sent it back for a medium that allowed me a better range of movement. I'm considering ordering the another color!" —kammielcooper

    Get it from Free People for $148 (available in sizes XS–L and three colors).

    19. A vacuum-insulated thermos to keep soup, coffee, leftovers, and more as hot as possible for hours on end. Now we just need a life-sized one to hibernate in, thanks.


    Promising review: "OMG I can't say enough about this thermos. It keeps food hot for up to seven hours, the slim profile is perfect, the exterior is so cute! It is piping hot inside, and cool to the touch outside. It has literally changed my life because I can pack hot food for my kids' school lunches daily. Perfect for gift giving, even the box it comes in is cool! Run out and buy it now!" —Jennifer gartsu

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50 (available in nine colors).

    20. A pair of classic Uggs so — no matter the weather — you can walk around and feel like your feet are at the beach in the Bahamas where they belong.

    Promising review: "I wear these every day. Not only are they comfortable for around the house, but they keep my toes so warm." —Jyo399

    21. A space heater featuring an adjustable thermostat and three settings over 16K people (and pups) swear by for heating up a drafty bedroom in no time.


    Promising review: "This thing really packs a punch! I used it all winter and it's just a tiny little power house. The face of the heater is a little smaller than a sheet of paper, but it can heat up a room in no time. I saved a fortune on my heating bill!" —Alexa Phelps

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    23. An oversized faux-sherpa jacket to snuggle up into and refuse to come out of until spring is here.


    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute." —Brianna

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89+ (available in sizes S–3X and 12 colors).

    24. A mug warmer who shall be there for you when you want to add five creams to your coffee but still have it hot AF. You deserve the best of both worlds.


    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.

    25. A simple fleece pullover (in tons of colors!) that just may become your favorite winter layer of all time.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.94+ (sizes S–XL, 20 colors).

    26. And a temperature-regulating comforter so you can have the warmth you need without the weight. This comforter is super soft, made of cotton, and moisture-wicking!
