    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.

    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.

    7. A thick Carhartt beanie, because keeping your noggin warm does a world of difference.,

    This hat has over 5,700 positive reviews on Amazon, so what are you waiting for?

    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.

    8. A pair of fleece-lined leggings that are basically just blankets for your legs.

    leggings with fuzzy inside

    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in eight colors).

    9. A throw blanket so snuggly, you'll find yourself fighting over it with family members and pets alike.


    Promising review: "I really love this throw. It is soft and just the right amount of warmth. The throw is also 100% polyester and washes and dries nicely. It also looks just as nice at the picture. It does shed a bit. I am hoping it sheds less and less, but for now it is not that much." —Jacqueline L.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 10 colors).

    10. And a fuzzy pet bed so you can reclaim your favorite blanket without leaving Fido out in the cold.


    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in 15 colors).

    11. A baby wipe warmer, because there's nothing your baby will hate more than a cold wipe shocking them awake in the middle of the night.

    baby wipe warmer with lid

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I’m SO glad I got it. My child is two months old and we’ve been using it since we got home and there’s been zero mold, it’s super easy to fill, holds a whole pack of wipes, has a nice long cord, a little light, and locks on the sides of the bottom lid to keep it down when pulling out wipes. Now, when I use cold wipes in the daytime, they bother my hands because I’m used to the warm wipes, so I can’t imagine how nice it is for my little one to have them warmed up. It heats up only on the top of the lockable portion of the warmer. Not too hot, not too cold and no little hands can get into it as long as it’s locked. The only issue (which isn’t huge) that I’ve run into is that when the wipes get low, the inside gets pretty hot. This is fixed as soon as it’s filled again. I was so indecisive on this issue and I’m so glad I decided to splurge." —BR

    Get it from Amazon for $27.68.

    12. A pack of thick, patterned socks that will keep your feet warm and also just looking really festive.

    patterned socks

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $12.99.

    13. A personal heater so you can stay warm even when the rest of your home is a tundra.

    rectangular device with vent

    Promising review: "I bought this to put on my desk to warm my right hand while using my mouse. It is always ice cold when I leave from work each day due to the cold blasting A/C vent above my desk. To accomplish reaching my hand I need to lay the heater on its side. This means it has no tilt detection to turn off, which is fine because the outside housing of this heater never gets hot or even warm to the touch. If you stand it up it can easily warm your front side at 1-2 feet away. Keep in mind I'm using this in an office area that is already heated/cooled to around 68F. I'd say if you're using this in an extremely cold environment (<50F) it would probably not do much to warm you up. With that being said, this is an ideal small heater to sit on a desk in an already warmed area." —Dan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A cult-favorite down jacket that thousands of people swear by for staying super warm and looking like a trendy marshmallow.

    reviewer wears long puffy coat and looks happy

    Promising review: "2,000+ reviews are not wrong — this is a great jacket! The hood lining is very warm and cozy, the sleeve cuffs keep your lower arms warm, and the side zippers allow the jacket to be tightened or loosened as needed. I doubt I'll say anything that hasn't already been said but I for one am very pleased with this jacket! Great price, fast shipping, good quality, and warm! Thanks, Orolay team, for a great product!" —_

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5X and six colors).

    really fuzzy blanket being held up

    I have this blanket and haven't moved from under it since I got it. It's silky soft on the bottom and thickly furry on top. I can't even begin to describe how perfectly snuggly this thing is.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $98 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Overall: I think these are great winter gloves! These gloves are nice and lightweight, but warm for the winter. I tried them out with my cell phone and iPod. Both responded as if I wasn't wearing gloves. Can I just say that I really love that I now have gloves that I don't have to take off to answer my phone? Because that's awesome!" —GrayGoose

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95.

    23. A windshield cover to prevent snow and ice from accumulating on your car. Just peel it off and drive!


    Just think of the time you could save! This comes with four magnets to keep the cover down.

    Promising review: "I just recently bought this product and it definitely lives up to my expectations. It has been windy all day and it has stayed on no problem. I have a Chevy sonic and it completely covers the windshield. I'd expect it to fit a much larger windshield, too. It keeps the snow off." —Shelby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. A compact quilted jacket for lightweight warmth you'll appreciate while hiking out doing any other outdoor exercise.

    There's an inside pocket for your phone!

    Promising review: "I ordered it in the pink color and it's beautiful! I love the fit. Slightly longer in the back to cover your booty. I sized down and it fits great. I returned a similar Patagonia jacket in favor of this." —TayMN

    25. A super warm sleeping bag that works in cold weather down to 20 degrees F so you can go to bed feeling nice and toasty, no matter how late in the year your camping trip is.


    Get it from Backcountry for $67.49 (available in long or wide).

    26. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top. You need all the water you can get — it's cold out there!

    drain cover

    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    27. Sherpa-lined sweats happy to hug your legs in their warm embrace.
