    1. A snow and ice shield for your car you can also use to block out the sun when summer rolls around again.


    With one swift motion you can remove ALL the snow from your car. Sounds good to me!

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical at first about this product. I thought the price was low considering what the product claimed and the materials used. After a month of Ice, lots of snow, and below-zero temperatures, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! I have highly recommended this product to several people and will continue to do so. The amazing thing to me about this product was its ability to withstand -20-degree temperatures with snow and ice. No cracking, tearing, or any problems with this windshield cover." —SunnyFunny

    2. A Love Your Melon beanie so soft you'll never want to wear another hat again.


    An added bonus to your head feeling nice 'n' toasty? 50% off all profits made by Love Your Melon are donated to fight cancer. My sisters and I love our winter hats from this company — I even wear mine indoors on extra cold days.

    Promising review: "What can you say about a Love Your Melon Beanie except that they are fabulous! Very well made, look great on every person, and fits well." —denise j mazza

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

    3. And a pair of ski gloves, because there is nothing worse than that moment when a chunk of snow escapes down the gap between your mediocre gloves and travels down your sleeve.


    Brrrrr. We've all been there — and we'd rather not go there again. Prevent that awful moment from happening by buying these colorful gloves that have an adjustable buckle around the wrist.

    Promising review: "I just ordered my second pair to be ready for winter. These gloves are great and keep my hands warm. They are roomy enough that I can put a hand warmer in them when the temperatures really dip down. I’m outside a lot and they are waterproof too. Can’t beat the price either!" —Amazon CustomerDianne

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 styles).

    4. A snowman building kit that'll let you channel your inner-child while you create your own version of Olaf.


    Promising review: "This is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in a while! I’m so excited that we are totally prepped and ready for when it snows! Everything has good long sticks so it will be easy to assemble and have the cutest snowman on the block!" —Trista

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. A sherpa pullover, so you can feel like you're living inside a big, fluffy cloud all day long.

    Sherpa is having a major moment right now, which is so ideal for those of us looking to hide inside our homes until the sun shines again. This pullover is extremely soft, but chic at the same time.

    Promising review: "LOVE this sweatshirt. I'm often hesitant to buy cheaper clothes on Amazon — often worried they will be oddly shaped, too small, clearly cheaply made. NOT this one. It's true to size (I'm 5'10" and 130 lbs., ordered a medium and it's perfect), maybe even a little bigger than anticipated but that makes it even cozier. I'm very impressed and have already recommended it to a friend." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 10 styles).

    6. A pair of heavy-duty waterproof Sorel boots that'll keep your feet protected even when trudging through a foot of snow.,

    Not sure why, but I waited wayyyy too long to invest in a solid pair of winter boots. Ever since I caved and spent the money on a pair like these, commuting in the snow hasn't been an issue at all.

    Promising review: "We just had our first big snow in Chicago (7 inches), and these boots are phenomenal! I can wear just regular running socks and my feet are so warm, it doesn't even feel like I'm outside. I even stood in the 7 inches of snow for an extended period of time playing with my greyhound, and never felt the cold through the shoes. They wiped clean and I was able to kick the snow off easily with no tracking in our condo building. The laces are easy to use, even with gloves on (not too short to use with thick gloves), and they dry quickly as well. The fur on top never got wet, and repelled the water well. And I have no signs of scuffing around the boot either. They are perfect!" —Reader One

    Get them from Amazon for $71.98+ (available in sizes 5–11 and six styles).

    7. A subscription to Book of the Month, so you’ll always be prepared with a page-turner if you’re suddenly stuck indoors.

    bookofthemonth / Via

    I’ve been a member of Book of the Month for years now and I’m not sure how I would survive without it. I am an avid reader, so this subscription makes sure I always have something to read. And is there anything better than curling up with a good book while snow falls outside? Nope, don’t think so.

    Get a three-month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    8. Or a Kindle Paperwhite, in case you like your books on demand.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Amazon has released to date! And — as is made abundantly clear by the photo above — it's 100% waterproof.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    9. A rechargeable lighter, so you can light every candle in your house for the ultimate snow-day experience.


    What's a snow day without some soothing scented candles? Get ~lit~ during the next snowstorm with this rechargeable lighter that you'll never need to replace!

    Promising review: "Wow, what a game changer. I can't believe I used to use matches or a lighter to light my candles. Sure, that works fine for some candles, but I always struggled to light tea light candles inside a nice holder, or even larger candles in a tall vase or candleholder. This makes it so much easier to reach down narrow glasses to light a candle. I highly recommend one! This one in particular seems pretty great. It charges through USB, so no need for bulky charging docks or dealing with little batteries. This is also a huge improvement over old school gas lighters, which require refilling and can burn you. And its got a long neck that can be curved to get to hard-to-reach places. Came in a nice box and was charged and ready to use." —Greg Bybee

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

    10. And a fancy new candle that'll sound like a crackling fireplace when you light it. It'll totally add to your serene, cabin-like atmosphere.

    woodwick_candles / Via

    I have a few of these candles and they never fail to brighten my mood (and the room, obvs). The wooden wick really does create a soothing crackling sound and the scents never disappoint.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to spend almost $30 on a candle but I am glad I did. First off this candle lasted forever and I light candles everyday. The smell was so beautiful and the sound of the wood burning was very soothing." —JerseyKat

    Get it from Walmart: medium hourglass candle for $16.87, large hour glass candle for $21.97, ellipse candle for $24.87.

    11. A one-piece thermal underwear jumpsuit you'll be happy you own come the coldest day of the year when your warmest sweater just won't cut it., Amazon

    Promising review: "I need a few more of these for winter. I did not take it off the first time I put it on, just put jeans and a top over it!! The color is rich, the cotton is thick and comfortable. You will absolutely LOVE this onesie. I am size 16, to size 18 in pants. I ordered the XL it's perfect!" —Roxanne Falkenstein

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 14 styles).

    12. A pair of wintry socks to keep your toes toasty on even the coldest of days — not to mention they are QUITE stylish.


    Each year, without fail, around the holidays I am gifted a pair of socks — and you'll never hear me (or anyone else) complaining about it. I truly believe there is not ONE person on this planet who would turn down these snuggly socks. They're made of wool and will brighten up any cold winter morning.

    Promising review: "These are wonderful socks. Soft and warm and not itchy at all like socks with such a high percentage of wool can be. They fit perfectly, hugging your foot instead of slipping around like a sloppy mess. Love the muted colors as well. Thinking about getting more in other colors!" —Debra A. Scott

    Get a five-pair pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 11 styles).

    13. An astrological mug that'll reveal constellations when you pour hot liquid into it — a must-have accessory for any snow day.


    You'll be seeing stars as soon as you indulge in your next cup of tea, coffee, or hot beverage.

    Promising review: "I have always loved watching the stars and trying to find the constellations. This mug is a beautiful shade of blue and it's 'magical' how the constellations appear when you have a heated drink like coffee or tea or even hot chocolate. Love, love, love this fun mug!" —S. Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in three styles).

    14. Over-the-top furry slippers because at the end of the day you're a glamorous diva and your at-home footwear should reflect that.


    Promising review: "I wanted something that was comfortable, cute with an opened toe, yet still feel like they’re warm and cozy. The thick non-skid rubber soles stay 'quiet' when walking on bare floors which is most important for apt living. These were everything I was hoping they’d be! They’re also well made and a good value for the price. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them again." —Karen W.

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (available in sizes 6–10 and seven styles).

    15. A pair of trendy joggers, perfect for snuggling up in front of a fire (or that virtual one you can watch on Netflix).


    I received these cute joggers as a Christmas gift and I want them in every single color. They are super comfortable, but feel a little more structured than your usual baggy sweats. You can find me wearing these every weekend from now through March.

    Promising review: "I love these joggers! I am 120 lbs and 5’7" and the size XS fits perfectly — slim but loose enough to be comfortable! I would say they run a bit on the larger side. The joggers I received were lined in fleece, not terry, but I actually prefer fleece. These are a great weight and very soft and cozy. I am super impressed and would highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 colors).

    16. A snuggly sloth heating pad to warm you up while you ~slow down~ inside as the snow falls outside.

    Urban Outfitters

    Heating pads are a must-have all year round, but when they really shine is during extra-cold winter days. This one is the cutest one I've ever seen and can be used as both a heat pack and a cold one. You can find me using this lil' friend to warm up my toes during the next blizzard.

    Promising review: "The lavender smell is amazing. Makes me fall asleep so quickly. Great for cramps or just when you want to cuddle it to warm up. Have not tried the freezing option but I'm sure its great as well." —Janna95

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    17. A hooded parka that'll protect you when the pretty snow globe–like flakes turn into a fierce not-so-cute blizzard. It's also an Amazon customer cult favorite!, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    This coat has a whopping 4,481 five-star reviews on Amazon — so you won't have to think too hard before diving into this purchase. You can even check out what BuzzFeed Editor, Maitland Quitmeyer, thinks about it here! (#1).

    Promising review: "SO WARM. So stylish! I am so in love with this coat. It seems very well put together and heavy and sturdy. I am usually a size L/XL in everything and the large fits perfectly with the zippers up on the sides. It gets a bit narrow around the hips but it's adjustable so it's fine! Absolutely love this coat." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–5X and 10 styles).

    18. A pair of fleece-lined slippers, perfect for kicking your feet up and relaxing while watching the snow fall outside.,

    If my feet are cold then the rest of my body is cold — that's just how it works. If you feel the same then you'll totally get why these slippers are a must-have for any snowy winter day.

    Promising review: "I really love these cozy, cute slippers! I read lots of slipper reviews before choosing these, and I'm glad I picked them. They feel really soft and warm on my feet, they stay on well, and they look nice. You might want to order the next size up if you're between sizes. The customer service for this was also excellent — super helpful and quick. If you need slippers, I highly recommend these!" —Elizabeth O'Brien

    Get them from Amazon for $25.90+ (available in sizes 5—12 and five colors).

    19. A flying saucer sled that'll let you relive your childhood as you slip and slide across the snow with your buddies.


    Promising review: "This steel snow saucer is absolutely awesome. I have purchased several of the plastic versions over the years and each and every one of them cracked after a few uses mainly due to the plastic freezing from contact with the snow and then being cracked by the jarring from riding down a slope. This saucer is thick steel and will not crack. It's a little pricey, but not when you consider they use you will get out of it. Additionally, because it is steel it holds its shape and therefore flies down the slopes at crazy speeds. Well worth the money and you will get seasons of use and enjoyment out of this product." —GodReigns

    Get it from Amazon for $41.54.

    20. A mug warmer, because every day is a little bit brighter when it includes a hot cup of coffee rather than a lukewarm one — especially when it's below 30 degrees outdoors., Amazon

    We've all been there — making our coffee or tea only to set it down and forget about until it's cooled down completely. Thanks to this mug warmer none of us ever have to suffer through another cold cup of caffeine again! It has received over 4K five-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's a big freakin' deal.

    Promising review: "I'm a chronic coffee forgetter. I can't drink it straight from the brewer (too hot for me) so I set my mug down to cool slightly and often get distracted. Of course I then come back to my coffee to find it's already cold. I've currently got the warmer at my office and it's working great. I can sip my coffee leisurely over the course of an hour and it's still nice and warm." —Elle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.79.

    21. An ice scraper you can extend up to 50 inches to help you tackle the delightful task of clearing deep snow and ice off your car., Amazon

    Ah, the dreaded moment when the snowstorm has ceased and you have to attempt to drive to the store but your windshield is covered in a thick layer of snow. Struggle no more with the help of this ice scraper/broom! It has an adjustable pole and foam grip to help you.

    Promising review: "Definitely worth five stars....I would have given this scraper 10 stars if I could!!! The snow broom part works great to sweep off snow up to 3" deep. The regular scraper works great on a frosty or slightly ice windshield, but the best part of this ice scraper hands down is the heavy duty scratch resistant jaw-like teeth. We had ice over the weekend and I tried out this scraper for the first time. Most ice scrapers are not built this tough and the teeth would have broken off — not with this bad boy, I had my windshield cleaned and was fished with the back window as well while my co-workers had only managed to clear a patch the size of a coffee mug! As soon as these come back in stock, I am ordering another. Another plus, it is lightweight and comfortable to use. LOVE IT!!!" —Adalynn

    Get it from Amazon for $15.96+ (available in four styles).

    22. A pair of classic Champion sweatpants you can pretty much count on to stay in ~style~ until the end of time.


    ...well, as stylish as a pair of sweats can be! Whether you wear them to shovel snow or to play video games for hours, these pants are sure to keep you warm 'n' toasty. With over 1,9K five-star reviews on Amazon, you know this item is a good buy.

    Promising review: "Extremely comfortable. I would have put the word 'extremely' in capital letters but that would have been shouting. Nothing is too tight: not the waist band or the ankle bands. I also love the weight of the material. Not too heavy and not too light. The fabric is not too stiff nor too flimsy. Perhaps Goldilocks summed up these pants best as 'just right.' I bought more and will buy more. Highly recommended." —WhiteLion

    Get it from Amazon for $13.77+ (available in sizes S–4XL and five colors).

    23. A seemingly basic zip-up that'll surprise you every time you wear it thanks to its super snuggly sherpa lining. Layer up, Friend.


    Promising review: "I love this sherpa-lined hoodie! My boyfriend got it for me for my birthday and it was the perfect gift! Just the right amount of padding for the hoodie to be a bit thicker than your average hoodie. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great, soft, and comfortable hoodie!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $37.97+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and five colors).

    24. A fake fireplace to bring the magic of one of those wintry cabins you always see in Hallmark movies into your own home. It even gives off heat!

    Promising review: "This is a cute little electric stove. Make sure that you check out the measurements before you order. I bought it for my utility room in the basement, and it gives the room a lovely glow and cozy warmth. I also love the remote control. You can use the 'fire' without the heat if you choose. The knob on the door is super cute, and when you open the glass door, you can see the thermostat and the other digital numbers that tell you the temperature, the time setting (how long do you want it to run), and the flame intensity. I chose this particular stove because of the glass sides. I thought that was prettier to see the flame by three sides." —J.P.

    Get it from Amazon for $164.99+ (available in four styles).

    25. A faux fur throw blanket any homebody would be happy to receive — it's just about that time where it's acceptable to hibernate until the sun comes out again in April.


    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in four sizes and 19 colors).

    26. A fleece outer layer you'll quickly become invested in, because it's a fact that the more layers you pile on, the comfier you'll be.


    If you don't live in the tundra like so many of us during the winter seasons, but you still want a lil' extra layer of warmth, you gotta get one of these fleece vests! They come in a ton of styles and are super versatile (AKA you can wear them over your pajamas or with a long sleeve and leggings during your seasonal hibernation).

    Promising review: "This is the best-ever outer vest. So comfortable and warm. I like to wear my vests open and this one stays right in place. It is very soft, too. Washes well and so far has kept its color. Best buy I made all year!" —HopAlong

    Get it from Amazon for $17.38+ (available in sizes M–L, 1X–6X, and 21 styles).

    27. Or a half-zip pullover with a chevron design and some carefully placed camouflage so you'll happily blend right into your surroundings and not speak to anyone until the snow melts


    Promising review: "Obsessed in an understatement. This pullover sweater is sooooo soft. I’m 5’4”, 135 lbs., and wearing a medium. I love the camo detail and this is sooo warm. You’ll want this pullover for fall and winter!!!" —lfcostello

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S–L and two styles).

    28. A heavy insulated parka, so even the coldest, most windy of blizzards won't prevent you from getting your Starbucks fix.


    Priorities, people. This jacket features a two-way full zip and double storm flaps that are sure to protect you from the elements. There are also adjustable cuffs so you can keep all of your warmth right inside.

    Promising review: "This coat is great. It fits perfectly. The outer material is heavy duty and high quality. Love the fact that there are pockets EVERYWHERE! Both inside and outside. Also a pocket on the left arm. They have two on the front with quick easy access to the things inside. Also on the inside there is a pocket for a phone or even a radio walkie talkies (if that's even what they are called). The hood is also detachable and lined with fleece. Also the neck has fleece lining as well. There is also a reflective part so you can be seen at night. Overall I absolutely love this coat and look forward to it keeping me warm during the Chicago winter!" —Adam Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $91.45+ (available in sizes S–4XL and six styles).

    29. Shearling ankle boots that'll make your toes feel like they're been swept up into a heartfelt hug, even while you're trudging through the elements.,

    Promising review: "These are every bit as good as the more expensive brands. Lovely color, wonderfully comfortable, and quality inside and out. I wear a size nine and ordered my size and these fit perfectly. I had no issues with putting them on. Good to know my feet will be toasty warm this winter." —Gully

    Get them from Amazon for $36.51+ (available in sizes 5–10 and five colors).

    30. A plush fleece robe, ideal for cuddling up on the couch or a snowy slumber party., Amazon

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10/10 stars I would. I’ve been looking for a robe that’s good for after a shower but that’s also a good lounge robe. This thing takes the cake. It’s huge and fluffy but not in a cheap material way. The hood makes me feel like I’m wearing a huge blanket wrapped around me. SO EXCITED TO WEAR THIS DURING THE WINTER!" —Maria C.

    Get it from Amazon for $54.95+ (available in sizes S–4XL and 22 colors).

    31. Or a fuzzy lil' sherpa number you can ~romp~ around in without fear you'll catch a cold.

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this romper! It's soft and fluffy, perfect for lounging! I bought last year's onesie and found it a bit too warm since it was full length. This one is the perfect in-between. It's definitely on the larger side though. I normally wear L–XL and I found L to be a little roomy. I could've definitely sized down to M and still have some room!" —Katherine

    Get it from American Eagle for $29.97 (available in sizes XS–2XL and two styles).

    32. And a variety pack of tea, so you'll be ready to offer a hot cup to anyone who happens to get stranded with you during a blizzard.


    I drink so much tea you'd think I was of British descent, so I can tell you after trying many brands that Harney & Sons makes a quality cup. This set comes with 14 different flavors in addition to honey crystal packs, so anyone who joins you will be able to find something that appeals to their tastebuds. Try the organic peppermint — you won't be disappointed.

    Get a pack of 42 from Amazon for $14.99.

    33. An oversized blanket/hoodie combination you'd find next to the definition of "cozy" in the dictionary.

    Have you ever experienced that unpleasant moment when you sit down on your couch to watch a movie but your regular sweats just aren't cutting it in the coziness department? Well, this fluffy sweatshirt is going to change your snuggle game forever. It's lined with blanket fabric, so it's extremely warm and comfy. Everyone should have one!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I have ever bought myself. The material is amazing. I would recommend this particular one over the cheaper ones. It is thick and made wonderfully." —Nicole Bani

    Get it from Amazon for $48.99 (available in five colors).

    34. A matching top-and-bottom jogger set that'll make getting dressed to cozy up in your bedroom easier than ever.

    Nasty Gal

    I'm looooving the look of this set! It says "staying at home to chill" but in the most fashionable way possible. Obsessed.

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $41.80 (available in sizes 0–10).

    35. A blanket scarf you can wrap around your neck for warmth or unfold and use as a makeshift blanket on a whim.


    I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I own over 10 blanket scarves. They are essential to my winter survival — and they'll soon be part of yours! Pick up this scarf for a very reasonable price and get ready to feel comfortable whether you're happily hibernating or out running errands.

    Promising review: "I bought this scarf because I am an everyday scarf-wearer in the cooler weather. I think this scarf compliments every outfit I put it with. It is not small, it is thick, the colors look exactly like the picture. I like that I can use it as a shawl and not just a scarf. I've received many compliments wearing this scarf. I'm actually wearing it today because it was snowing! It is long enough where I can tie it in different ways and doesn't look or feel cheap. The scarf does not scratch at my neck. If you are looking for a quality scarf, I would recommend. I will be purchasing another!" —Jennifer Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 12 styles).

    36. "What Do You Meme?" — a card game that'll be fun for the whole family so you won't be at each other's throats while you're snowed in.


    This game is a great for a variety of ages. It comes with 270 cards total, an easel, and a set of bonus rules. It's a very simple game that encourages players to compete to create the funniest meme — even grandma can play, despite not being familiar with the recesses of the internet!

    Promising review: "Had our neighbors over for a quick game while my toddler napped. We literally couldn’t stop playing and didn’t end up quitting until we had exhausted every single meme in the stack, 2.5 hours later. There were many times the judge couldn’t finish reading a card because we couldn’t breathe from laughing so hard! Definitely recommend." —RRNMCW

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    37. An ergonomic shovel, because it's common courtesy to at least make a pathway for the delivery guy to bring your order to your door.


    No one likes shoveling unless they're a teenager trying to make some extra cash mid-storm. Regardless, it's a job that needs to be done. Make it a little easier on your back by picking up this shovel that features a bent handle for easier lifting.

    Promising review: "I could not wait to get a decent shovel that would not break my back. The first time I used it, I knew I made a good purchase. It worked great and didn't give me back pains. I am just so happy to have a decent shovel that is not 40+ years old and worn out. The shovel is well-made and should last me a very long time." —Daniel Lavoie

    Get it from Amazon for $46.71.

    38. A pair of snow pants with 1,200+ five-star reviews on Amazon, so you can count on them to keep you toasty., Amazon

    Have you ever made the mistake of wearing regular sweatpants out into the snow? That's a no-no. Don't suffer from wet, soggy pants ever again and invest in this pair of ultra-warm snow pants.

    Promising review: "I bought these for a recent snowboarding trip since I knew I'd be falling into ice most of the weekend. I proceeded to crash into snow more times than I can count, and these pants kept me dry and happy. The pockets are great, too, since the pockets have zippers for your things. Highly recommended for the casual snow-goer who doesn't want to invest in expensive gear, like me." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 16 styles).

    39. A super soft linen duvet, so you can stay wrapped up in luxury for your entire snow day.

    The Citizenry

    To quote Belle from Beauty and the Beast, this duvet cover will have you saying "ooooh, isn't this amazing?" Made with 100% French flax, this comforter feels so soft against your skin. I would know — I have it! It's breathable so you won't be dripping in sweat while you're snuggled under the covers enjoying your day at home.

    Get it from The Citizenry for $225 (available in full/queen or king sizing and eight styles).

    40. A six-pack of fleece-lined leggings, because regular ol' leggings simply won't cut it when it's as cold as Alaska outside.


    Fleece-lined leggings will change your life — I mean it. Just when you thought plain leggings were the best thing since sliced bread, a pair like these come along and blow your mind! They are so cozy, stretchy, and opaque (no undies will be accidentally on display!). Simply a must-have.

    Promising review: "Love these! I bought them to wear under my postal uniform snow pants for warmth. They do the trick, their very warm and comfy and not constricting. Before I found these I was wearing long johns and bulky sweatpants, which made it tiring to climb stairs in all the bulky layers. Love, love these!" —Jacquelyn McEachen

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in one-size or XL and six styles).

    41. A pair of fleece pajamas, so you can experience the utmost comfort while binge-watching The Great British Baking Show., Amazon

    Is your local weather forecaster yammering on about an impending "snowstorm of the century?" Then it's definitely time to break out your coziest PJs. These matching top and bottoms come in so many fun patterns — you'll never want to take them off. And! You won't have to!

    Promising review: "I got the Night Owl pair of these for Christmas, promptly put them on, and didn't take them off for the next two days. These are quite probably the softest, most cuddly thing I have ever worn in my entire life. They are so unbelievably warm and soft, and have just enough stretch to follow your movements without being restricting. I loved them so much that I bought another pair on my own, the Sweet Heart. They, too, are so very comfortable that I may never leave the house again." —jayamama

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–4XL and 32 styles).

    42. A set of feathery socks, perfect for layering under your fave pair of booties.


    If Big Bird designed a pair of socks, these would be them. They're so fuzzy and fantastic, and I definitely need to add them to my wish list.

    Promising review: "Turns out I really hate wearing slippers; I go barefoot in the house all summer, but winter is too chilly for that, especially since I prefer to keep the heater on low, and wear a layer or two if necessary. So, icy feet... (Never wear shoes in the house.) These socks are perfect — I can wear them in the house all day and have warm toes. They’re comfy and they fit well. I have no idea how they’ll hold up, but so far, I love them!" —Katt13

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $16 (available in 10 styles).

    43. A DIY neon sign that'll be great for keeping you and your roomie entertained while you're snowed in.

    Urban Outfitters

    A snow day calls for a DIY craft! What better than this make-your-own neon sign kit! You can create a fun piece of home decor and kill time while the snow falls. Win-win!

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18 (available in pink and orange).

    44. High-waisted leggings you can throw on to lounge around your apartment or pair with an oversized sweater to venture out into the cold for snacks — truly the most versatile (and necessary) item of clothing you'll ever own.


    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5'5" and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and in 22 colors).

    45. A pair of sherpa-lined joggers for the person who has always wanted to know what it feels like to be as warm as a baby lamb.


    Are you passionate about athleisure and comfort? Then these pants are surely calling your name. Not only are they made with the softest fleece, but they have POCKETS! They're everything your homebody heart is craving.

    Promising review: "So soft!! 10/10 would buy again. The stitching is great quality. The lining is so comfortable and soft. Haven’t taken them off since they came in today. I’ve never wrote a review before. These pants deserve it 😻" –Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and seven styles).

    46. A Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite so you can socialize as much (or as little) as you want from the comfort of your own couch mid-snowstorm.


    The Nintendo Switch is a great console to give those who are more ~reserved~ a chance to connect with others when they feel like it. You can play games like Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening on your own or join a friend to play Luigi's Mansion 3 game. This product is a winner for everyone!

    Promising review: "The Switch is Nintendo's best device since the N64. I use my Switch every day. I commute by train so this has been perfect for me. There has never been a handheld this good. The transition to and from docked mode is seamless. The battery life is also pretty decent. Overall, it is a great device. Nintendo's back!" —Arjun S. Kahlon

    Get it from Amazon: Nintendo Switch for $299 (available in grey or neon blue/red), Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.96 (available in four styles).

    47. A Calvin Klein bralette, because if you're hanging out at home WHY WOULD YOU WEAR AN ACTUAL BRA?!


    Take that wired-nuisance off and throw it into a corner until further notice! Put on this comfortable Calvin Klein bra for the duration of your snow day.

    Promising review: "This is the most comfortable bralette in the world. Please note I said bralette and not sports bra — this offers minimal to no support and I would never recommend it for physical activity. FYI it is also cut to offer minimal coverage. I am a 32D and I ordered a size small, which fits great. If you’re between sizes, I’d recommend going a size down as this is very stretchy. That being said, I wear this everywhere. It’s cute if you want to show it off under a flannel or cropped sweatshirt, or just a nice piece to wear under tank tops etc. The material is UNBELIEVABLY soft, it feels like you aren’t wearing a bra at all. I put this in the wash with all my clothes and let it hang to dry, and I’ve had no problems with shrinking or pilling at all." —Courtney S

    Get it from Amazon for $12.80+ (available in sizes XS–XL, 1X–3X, and 28 styles).

    48. An external battery charger that'll save you from boredom in case the blizzard is so bad it knocks out your power.


    With over 1.9K five-star reviews, this external battery is just what you need for a snowstorm! Whether you lose power or you simply enter such a cozy state you can't bear the thought of getting out of bed to charge your phone, this product is essential for keeping your battery charged.

    Promising review: "This bad boy holds a lot of power for charging iPhones multiple times (like on a long journey away from power). Plus it holds a charge pretty well. Rechargeable lithium batteries are known to leak power over time and this will, too, but the capacity is so high that the leakage is inconsequential. I charged mine and let it sit for a month without using it. It still showed four of four dots and recharged to the top fairly quickly (sorry, I didn’t time it)." —Steve B

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    49. An Amazon Firestick so whether you want to the new season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or sync up your Disney+ account you won't have to leave your room until the sun shines again.


    Promising review: "We have been getting steady increases in our cable TV bill with no increases in services. So we thought we would cut the cord and this device became the focal point for making that transition. We are very pleased with the performance of this device. It is easy to set up with prompts provided as you power it up. We then added our favorite apps, (also very easy), and have never looked back at the cable TV being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for cable TV. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go." —Stephen H. Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    50. Splurge-worthy shearling slippers that'll leave your little piggies nice 'n' toasty all winter long and make you feel like you're walking on two fluffy clouds.

    Vineyard Vines

    I've been debating getting "into slippers" for a while now. I've always been more of a cozy sock girl, TBH, but these have changed my mind. The shearling envelops my foot and from all angles and leaves me feeling SO cozy. I like that the bottoms are made of a more durable material in case I ever had to run outside real quick to throw out the garbage or get the mail. These babies are worth the investment — you won't regret it.

    Get them from Vineyard Vines for $69.99 (available in sizes 5–12).

    51. A 50-pack of hand warmers you can stuff inside your clothes, boots, and bra (?) to keep you the warmest you've ever been in inclement weather.


    One year (for some ungodly reason) I spent New Year's in Pennsylvania on a mountain in -10 degrees. It was DELIGHTFUL if you like freezing your hiney off. My only saving grace? These hand warmers.

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $33.33.

    52. A basic crewneck you'll probs to want to order 10 of — just ask one of the nearly 3K Amazon customers who left a five-star review.,

    Promising review: "Every year my father-in-law asks for a different color sweatshirt — no hood, no zipper, no pockets. Just a basic sweatshirt in a different color. And every year we get him a Hanes sweatshirt as a present, because they're soft, comfortable, fit well, and work well to keep him warm during our freezing Wisconsin winters. The price is also perfect and it saves us from going to the store, so I'd say it's pretty much perfect." —SomeGeekyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $7.20+ (available in sizes S–5XL and 30 colors).

    53. Ghirardelli hot chocolate mix that'll ensure you have a sweet 'n' snuggly snow day.


    Promising review: "I don't usually write a review so quickly but I purchased this for a Christmas hot chocolate bar. Now if you make hot chocolate from this cocoa at the right dosage it will taste like heaven, no we don't know how it feels to be in heaven but I can imagine it feels like this hot chocolate tastes. It's thats great, especially on a cold winter morning to warm you up. It just taste like chocolate delightfulness. Not cheap or watered down but rich, bodied and fulfilling. And please do yourself a favor and use milk, not water." —BluFairy

    Get it from Amazon for $21.15.

    54. And a snow blower, because who on earth wants to break their back shoveling the old-school way in a blizzard?


    When a real snowstorm rolls in, my husband is often outside for HOURS at a time trying to dig our car out from the recently fallen inches. He'd probably give anything to have a snow blower of his own to make the job a little easier. I mean, wouldn't you?

    Promising review: "Bought this in September to save my back and so thankful I did! Northern Virginia just got hammered with one of the top five worse snowfalls on record. We had over 24" inches. We ran this a few times on fresh snow and it worked great. The final clean-up was about 20". It was slow going and we had to take a few passes but she did a great job. Will buy again!" —Dobbie

    Get it from Amazon $107.94+ (available in 16 or 20 inches and with or without a light).

    There's only one thing left for me to ask...
