If you happen to know someone who is always cold, lives in a house where the temperature is typically turned up high, and never leaves the house without having several layers of clothing on them, then this post is for you. Christmas is the ideal time to give novelty and practical gifts that can help your frosty friend warm up during the winter months. Here’s our pick of the best:
Outback Battery Heated Socks – £13.99
It’s about time someone invented these, as I often have to walk my dog in snow that then turns to ice, over freezing fields, and the one thing that always suffers, apart from my hands are my feet. I put my wellie boots on the radiators to warm them up but they don’t stay that way for long, What I love about these socks is that they are battery operated and they stay warm for 4 to 5 hours, plenty of time for me to walk my doggie! The socks remain at a super cosy temperature of 39 degrees celsius, and the batteries slot into a little pouch inside the socks. Available from I Want One Of Those.
Outback Battery Heated Mittens – £17.99
Talking about cold hands, when you are out walking your dog, mittens are a great way to keep them warm and a better option than gloves, but now we have these fine options from the same company that does the heated socks. Yes, you’ve guessed it, heated mittens! Using the same battery pack as the socks, each mitten has the battery that heats them up to 39 degrees celsius, and has an on/off switch to power them up. Fabulous! From I Want One Of Those.
