If there’s someone in your house complaining about cold feet all winter long, odds are good that person is female.
That’s no coincidence. Scientific studies have shown that women’s hands and feet average 3 degrees colder than men’s. Women’s blood vessels constrict more drastically, resulting in reduced blood flow and cold extremities.
We’re here to help cure popsicle toes. This cozy foot muff provides heat therapy to warm and soothe chilly feet. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, the quilted muff has imperceptible electric heating elements that surround the feet with the unique gift of gentle warmth to shake off the chill and baby tired tootsies.
Of course, men are not completely immune to the problem of cold feet. These comfortably soft gentlemen’s slippers have adjustable uppers made from Mongolian sheepskin that provide a custom fit. The sheepskin interiors’ dense, hollow fibers allow air to circulate, keeping feet toasty warm. Another Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, these slippers have double-walled uppers made from durable chestnut-napped suede, and a grippy indoor/outdoor rubber outsole.
This electric bed 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. Rather than heating the entire bed with a conventional electric blanket when only your feet are cold, this machine-washable warmer confines its heat to the lower part of the mattress, resting on top or under the covers. This makes an ideal and unique gift as a wedding present, too.
Other factors, such as hormones and fat-to-muscle ratios, also enter in to how cold your hands and feet get. Taking measures to add warmth as well as adding circulation-boosting light exercise to your routine can help. And if all else fails, just remember: cold hands, warm heart.
