    1. This rechargeable hand warmer to keep your forever-freezing hands nice 'n toasty whether you're hiking in the blistering cold or just trying to get through the workday despite your office feeling like it's -32 degrees in there.

    The hand warmer has three temperature levels that you can pick from depending on how much heat you want. It's battery-operated and can even act as a portable charger for your phone!

    Promising review: "This hand warmer is amazing! My hands are constantly cold and I've tried all sorts of products to help keep them warm but nothing has worked until now. I charge the hand warmer every night with a standard USB charger and the next day, I have hours of warmth. The three temperature settings are very helpful — I use the highest setting when I'm outdoors for long periods of time and the lower settings when I'm indoors (e.g. sitting at my desk or in a cold movie theater). I've already given hand warmers as gifts to several cold-handed friends and family members and they're loving it as well. I hope Ocoopa comes out with a foot warmer next!" —Riva Kupritz

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in three colors and one additional style).

    2. A compact towel warmer and dryer because you dread the moment you have to leave the steamy shower and walk into the chilly air beyond the bathroom. A heated towel will actually make the walk back to your bedroom feel more comfortable and ~luxurious~.


    It warms towels up to 122 degrees in about 30 minutes (perfect for turning on if you need a nice, relaxing soak in the tub). And, you can choose to let it stand on the floor or mount it on your wall to save space.

    Promising review: "I waited a year to review this. After a year I can say that it is easy to use and does the job. You would not want it to get any hotter than this. We frequently hang two full-size towels on it. This is mostly to get the towels to fully dry in the winter. And of course, if you pop it on at the same time you start your shower to warm, it will also have a nice warmth by the time you get out of the shower. But, don’t expect this to fully heat in a minute. Also, you don’t want it to get any hotter. It’s the perfect temperature. It won’t burn your hand once it’s fully heated (safe for kids) and if you accidentally leave it on all day (we have done this a million times), it shouldn't burn your house down." —Addie Bryant

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    3. These knit tights you can wear on their own with a sweater or a dress, or layer under pants because once you walk outside, you have about 10 seconds before your thighs become numb from the cold.

    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 sizes S/M and M/L, three colors, and in packs of two).

    4. A super soft, lightweight shawl that'll pretty much wrap you in a warm hug — one you'll be happy to receive when you have to walk back to your apartment on a cold night after your dinner date.


    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this for such a low price! I purchased it last minute to wear with a bridesmaid dress when we realized it would be cold on the wedding day. It made a pretty big difference in my comfort level and looked great. Very large, soft and well-made. I think I'll get a lot more use out of this over the winter too! Great buy!" —Wildflower

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 11 colors).

    5. Or a thicker scarf made from a wool blend because it'll add a layer of warmth when you're shivering on a flight but don't want the added bulk of your jacket around you.


    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. These smartphone-friendly thermal gloves so you can text your friends while you wait for your bus outside in the frigid air without feeling like your fingers are about to turn into icicles.


    Promising review: "I love these gloves. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and today’s high was 22 degrees, and my hands didn’t get too cold. I had my gloves on and I could still use the functions on my phone. It also has a pretty good grip, as well." —Calvin

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes M–XL and in 10 colors).

    7. A cozy fleece throw blanket that'll pretty much save you from freezing your booty off when you stay at your friend's house overnight and they forget to give you a comforter.


    Promising review: "I love this throw blanket so much! I use it on my twin bed. Michigan winters can be the cause for some 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 $19.98+ (available in four designs).

    8. This heated seat cushion to provide you with lumbar support and (maybe more importantly) keep you snug while you wait for the car heater to *finally* kick in.


    You can choose between high and low heat settings and the maximum heating temperature is 114 degrees, so it won't actually be scalding hot to the touch. And you'd just plug it into your car's 12-volt DC outlet.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my son-in-law who has back problems. He enjoys the warmth on cold mornings on his commute. Easy installation, too." —CCReader

    Get it from Amazon for $24.65.

    9. A pack of cute wool-blend socks because they'll pretty much smother your piggies in toastiness, meaning your chilly toes won't have to walk barefoot across the cold, hard floor.

    Promising review: "Comfy, soft, and cute! What more can a person ask for in socks? They have held their shape well and the colors still look great. I love that these are also cozy and warm, but not sweaty and never itchy. Love them!" —J.M.H.

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 20 variety packs).

    10. This oversized faux-sherpa jacket that'll make you feel fancy as heck and stop you from practically hugging yourself as you walk into work on the chilliest of days.


    Reviewers recommend ordering one size up.

    This jacket is one of my favorite cold-weather essentials! I wore it through the chilliest fall days in New York City and it kept me comfortably warm — plus, I always got so many compliments on it! It's lined with faux sherpa inside and out, unlike a lot of other jackets that aren't lined on the inside (which is why you still feel cold even though the jacket looks so warm!!).

    Promising review: "This is a nice fluffy, warm jacket. It’s lightweight and not heavy at all but you can tell it will keep you warm when needed. It's not for the snow, but otherwise, it is perfect. The soft, fluffy stuffed teddy bear feel is the best. It's a great, cute jacket and is very stylish on." —TrustinGod

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 colors).

    11. A pair of memory foam slippers with faux fur because "chilling at home" shouldn't literally mean chilling.


    These also have an anti-slip, waterproof, sneaker-like outsole! Reviewers recommend sizing up for a more comfortable fit.

    Promising review: "I read the reviews and took people's advice to order a size up, and they fit like a glove! I got them today and put them on, and oh my gosh, they feel like pillows on my foot! And they are soo warm! I am so in love with these, I think I will definitely be getting a pair for my mom for Christmas and another pair for myself!" —Sharice M Creswell

    Get them from Amazon for $21.90+ (available in sizes 5–12 and in four colors).

    12. This five-window insulation kit that'll help block out any winter drafts that creep through super tiny crevices — and you wonder why you're *still* shaking even though the heat is blasting.

    Promising review: "SORCERY!!! What a difference this has already made! Using an infrared thermometer, the temperature inside went from the mid-50s to 66.7 within minutes of installation. The furnace was always set to the 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 from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in kits for one large window, three windows, and 10 windows).

    13. And a draft guard to stop that cold air from bypassing the gaps under your doors.


    Promising review: "This draft stopper is exactly what I need. An added, unexpected, bonus is that it not only keeps drafts at bay, but there is also much less noise leaking into the room. I wanted a draft stopper that would stay in place and not need constant adjusting. Mission accomplished! I also like that the foam baffles can be removed so the casing can be washed. A VERY successful, satisfactory purchase." —djc

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in eight colors and as a pack of two).

    14. A pair of sheepskin insole inserts so you can instantly turn stiff, un-snugly slippers into the warm, plush cloud of your dreams.

    Promising review: "Nice quality shearling insoles. I have LL Bean house moccasins which are several years old and I just place a new insole into them each year. These are very nice and make my lovely old moccasins feel like new again. I’ve been using them every day since I got them last November and so far they are holding up very well." —Bianca K.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in men's sizes 8–14 and women's sizes 6–12, and two colors).

    15. This mug warmer that'll keep your coffee or tea hot (no matter how cold your office gets) so you can warm yourself from the inside-out.


    Reviewers say it helps to top your mug with a silicone lid.

    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.

    16. A thick Carhartt beanie because if you're like me, then keeping your head and ears warm and protected from the chill in the air certainly makes you feel warmer all over.,

    Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It is thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year-round in Dallas or Chicago. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 30 colors).

    17. This chunky cardigan that might honestly make you feel about 10 degrees warmer just by looking at how cozy it seems.,

    Promising review: "Ordered this knit cardigan after spending hours searching for the perfect sweater — and I found it! This cardigan is warm and cozy, very stylish, and fits perfectly." —Julie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.39+ (most styles are around $24.20; available in sizes S–XXL and in 20 colors/styles).

    18. A small but powerful space heater bound to quickly save the day when your landlord says the heat's gone out and it'll be a few days before it's adequately fixed.

    It's even small enough to fit under a desk in a freezing cold office.

    Promising review: "I cannot handle how sturdy and steadfast this powerful little heater is. It easily warms my little apartment, does not overheat, and is cute and little. I would not call it quiet, however, as it does produce a pretty loud fan sound — however, I actually find it soothing." —J Fu

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

    19. These ~ah-dorbs~ USB hand warmers because your apartment is so dang chilly that it'll actually take some magic to keep your palms warm while you work from home.

    They have three heat settings so you can pick the temperature that best suits your needs. The adjustable wrist straps allow them to fit most hands, and the 57-inch USB cord ensures that you have enough room to move around.

    Promising review: "As a programmer working in a freezing cold office, hand warmers are a necessity. These are hilarious and adorable, and they really warm up! I like the levels of heat, though I usually just have them all the way up. They don't get too hot and never burn. They also really don't get in my way. The cord is long enough to plug in and still work a few feet away, but if wires are a concern, I'd just get the wireless ones. My only issue is that they kind of warm the backs of your hands, not necessarily your fingers. I often find myself sliding my fingers under the heater of the other hand. Overall, they're a great product, and I'm happy with them!" —Evin

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (also available as wireless warmers, which reviewers say take about two hours to fully charge).

    20. A cotton thermal blanket that you can use under your comforter to add some extra warmth and snuggle yourself asleep on the coldest of nights.


    Promising review: "This is such a nice blanket! Just what I was looking for — a cotton thermal blanket for winter. It's got a nice weight to it, and the weave is good and solid, not like other cotton thermals that had a looser weave with more holes for air pockets. This has smaller finer air pockets and keeps me toasty warm all night. Since it's winter now, I can't say how it'll feel in summer yet, but I'm hoping it'll do the same as my previous cotton thermal blankets — stay cool and comfy. Cotton's the way to go for comfy blankets year-round." —Samantha Ashe

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes Twin–King and nine colors).

    21. And this heated Shiatsu massager so you can have a soothing (and warm) massage without venturing out into the blistering chill for once.


    Promising review: "I love using this so much and use it every couple days just to keep my neck and shoulders in shape. It helps so much if I sleep funny and I can fully recover after using it for about 30 minutes. I also find it extremely soothing after a hard day at work. I simply put it behind me in a chair or couch while I’m watching TV for the evening and after a very short time, I just feel the circulation flowing and my muscles relaxed. Great design and easy to use. Well worth the money, too. It has an auto-shutoff if it gets too hot, which is excellent because then it never gets too hot and burns out." —A. Brink

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99.
