The winter solstice is behind us now, and that’s good news: evening light soon will return, a unique gift from Mother Nature we can all appreciate. The bad news: before it gets warmer, it’s going to get colder.
For most of the nation, the coldest time of the year occurs during the first three weeks of January. Let’s cozy up with some of these items that will keep us warm on even the coldest, bleakest days.
This electric warmer is designed for the foot of the bed, delivering the perfect amount of heat to keep toes toasty without overheating the rest of the body. This sensibly sized warmer confines its heat to the lower part of the mattress, resting on top of or under the covers. It also can be used in front of a favorite easy chair, or even under your desk while working, making it an ideal unique gift for anyone suffering from popsicle toes.
The Best Heated Throw earned its rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it generated the most consistent heat on the highest heat setting and was the most comfortable in comparative tests. And unlike other throws made from thin, itchy fabric, The Best Heated Throw is knitted from plush polyester fleece, with an impeccably soft sherpa lining.
Also rated The Best by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, these heated gloves were praised by panelists for dispersing heat across the top and bottom of the hand and all fingers. The rechargeable battery in The Best Heated Gloves warmed hands for more than 12 hours on low power. The Best Gloves are made with a soft Thinsulate lining for comfort and waterproof material.
We’re not saying another polar vortex is on the way, but if it gets here, you’ll be ready with unique gifts that will keep you or your loved ones toasty warm.
