The colder weather is always welcome after a sticky, humid summer, but for those of us who feel the cold down to our bones whenever the temperature dips below 70F, it can be downright torture. If you’re one of the unlucky people who are always freezing, you need to grab these products from Amazon ASAP.
Casloyal Rechargeable Hand Warmers – $19.99
One of the worst parts of always being cold is having cold hands. I have terrible circulation (thanks, Reynaud’s!) so my hands sometimes get so freezing that my fingers go white and numb and it’s the worst. Having warm hands is paramount, so these hand warmers have been a godsend for me. I can’t recommend them enough. (I used to use the disposable ones, which are also good, but these seemed more cost effective and environmentally friendly.)
Peter Pan Long Hot Water Bottle w/ Cover – $49.99
I know fifty bucks seems like a lot to spend on a hot water bottle, and maybe it is, but this one is the best. The long length means it can literally warm your whole body, and the cozy cover on it is great to cuddle up with. I put this under the blankets with me in bed and not only does it warm me up pretty quickly, it keeps me warm because it makes my bed/covers all warm too. It’s been a great investment.
The Original Comfy Blanket Sweatshirt – $37.99
I’m not lying when I tell you that I’m wearing this as I’m typing this. I got it from my partner for Christmas and it’s perhaps the best gift I’ve ever been given. The inside is so soft and cozy that after a while, it almost makes me TOO warm (but not quite). Whenever I’m freezing and everyone else in the house isn’t, I throw this baby on and it seriously helps.
Sunbeam Heating Pad – $39.99
If hot water bottles aren’t your style, this heating pad could do the trick in keeping you warm while in bed. Plus, if you suffer from cramps during your period, it does double duty. Plug ‘er in, put it on your mattress, and bask in the joy of not shivering constantly.
Amazon Basics 500-Watt Personal Heater – $15.99
If you work at a desk, you need this on it. I have mine on several times a week whenever my hands/whole upper body gets too cold (which happens a lot) and it always warms me right up. Doesn’t the sound of a stream of hot air coming your way make you want to drift off into heaven? Just me?
Thermal Underwear/Long Johns Set – $19.99
Available in a variety of colors and sizes, these thermal underwear are GREAT for wearing under your clothes on a cold (read: anything below 75F for many of us) day or even as PJs when lying around the house. They really do hold in the heat and they fit really well too, so I think they’re a bargain.
Blulu 3-Piece Ear Warmer Headband Set – $10.59
If bobble hats aren’t your thing but your ears get freezing when you take the dog for a walk (speaking from personal experience here), you need some of these ear warmers. They’re also great if you go running or, you know, whenever you leave the house. Sometimes I’m tempted to put on a full-on balaclava, but these work without being quite so intense, ha!
Heavy Thermal Socks – $12.99
Just like cold hands suck, so do cold feet (and I get those too). That’s why these socks are PERFECT for sleeping. They don’t make my feet too hot but they do assure I don’t wake up shivering. They go great in winter boots, as well (so long as you have extra room because they’re kind of thick).
Contigo Vacuum-Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug – $12.84
Spoiler alert: I don’t use this for travel, I use it at home. Because I’m always cold, I need hot beverages at the ready 24/7 and I feel like regular mugs let coffee/tea go cold too quickly. This thing keeps my drinks literally steaming hot for HOURS so I really love it.
Ghiradelli Hot Cocoa, 15 Pack – $10.77
Need I explain this one? This is the ultimate cold weather drink and it’s delicious. Marshmallows not included but I’m sure you can handle that.
