Now that winter is coming, attention turns to ingenious ways of keeping warm without spending too much money. Winter warmer products come in all different shapes and sizes and include clothing items, products for pets, clever hot water bottles and ways to keep your drinks warm while you are working.
Here are ten of the best winter warming products:
SockShop Heat Holders 2.3 TOG Thermal Lounge Socks – £7.99
These socks have a thick lining that ensures your feet stay super-cosy and warm whatever the weather outside. Wear them in or out depending on how much your feet feel the cold. The looped pile of the knit holds in the heat and the soles have grip treads so that you don’t slip over. Lots of different colours and patterns available.
Raynaud’s Disease Silver Gloves – £9.99
These are the warmest gloves I have ever worn, and for someone who suffers from Raynaud’s Disease (where the blood vessels contract and leave the fingers white and numb with cold) these have proved to be a Godsend. They are a fine knit and contain 8% silver which helps to keep the cold out.
Heating Pad For Drinks – £11.03
If you are the type of person that gets so carried away with their work that they find their hot drink goes cold, this might save the day. A heating pad for all your hot beverages. Keeps your drinks just at the right temperature so you can work away to your heart’s content. Uses a USB cable and comes in several colours.
Maine New England – Grey Thermal Heat Insulating Beanie – £12.00
The head is where we lose most of our heat so this beanie from Maine New England combats that using a blend of heat-insulating technology and a lovely soft and fleecy interior.
Mini Electric Heater 250W – £18.99
This mini heater is ideal for positioning on your work surface and works particularly well near windows where there’s a draught or cold spot. Uses a USB to work and lots of different colours available.
Microwavable Slippers – Cream Boots – £19.99
All you have to do to heat up these slippers is pop them in the microwave for a few minutes and you have long-lasting heat for hours. Soft and comfortable, they contain millet scented with lavender and are perfect for aching feet at the end of a long day. UK sizes 3-7
12 Hour Blaze Orange Hand Warmer – £23.95
Cold hands are the bane of many an outdoorsy type person, but what a better way of keeping your hands warm with this iconic hand-warmer from Zippo. Is it a lighter? No, it’s a hand warmer and once the cup is filled and the burner is lit it will last for an amazing 12 hours.
Heated Insoles Volcanic Thermal – 27.00
These are insoles that have thermic insulated wires pre-wired into them which then use a thermic battery pack to power them up. Instant heat which is perfect for those freezing cold Mondays when you dread going to work.
Toast Heated Pillow – £29.99
As warm as toast, the battery pack hidden carefully inside this heated pillow is charged using a USB cable and stays hot for around 4 hours. Much softer and more comfy than a traditional hot water bottle.
Narwhal Heated Slippers – £34.99
If you are anything like me it is your feet that suffer in the winter months. No matter how I try I can never get them warm once I have been outside. Not anymore with these fabulous whale heated slippers that once charged up give you 4 – 6 hours of sumptuous heat. One of the cutest winter warming products we have seen.
