29 Great Products to Help You Stay Cozy This Winter
When winter hits, nothing beats throwing on some comfy PJs and curling up in a warm blanket with a nice cup of hot tea or cocoa. The perfect summation of #WinterGoals is being totally cozy before the fire while the snow falls in big, fluffy flakes outside your window.
From selecting the softest shirts at great prices to picking the perfect plush blanket for cuddling, get ready to have the coziest winter ever. Here are 29 great products to help you stay cozy this winter.
Wrap Up and Warm Up
Nothing beats the chill like a toasty comforter fresh out of the dryer. Whether you share the Genteele Sherpa Throw Blanket with a friend or loved one or you swaddle only yourself in a cocoon of fuzzy goodness, you can never have too much blanket.
Finding the right blanket for a good price can be tough, but this one is a bargain at just under $30. Customers love this cozy, non-shedding blanket, and they can't get over the softness. Some mentioned the rich colors bleeding slightly on the first wash, so be sure to wash it by itself.
Looking cool and cozy in winter isn't just for those of the feminine persuasion. Everyone deserves to have seasonal looks that are on point, and one easy way to get there is with one of Tough Headwear's Slouch Beanies . It offers the perfect blend of comfy and casual with a touch of styling that allows you to wear it with more formal attire.
It’s a popular item at barely $8, and thousands of reviewers absolutely rave about the snuggly-warm hats. From the brisk Rocky Mountains to the milder low country, there's not much negative feedback on these stylish hats.
Get your knit on from head to toe! Fleece-Lined Slipper Socks are the perfect snuggle gear, whether you're sitting by the fire or out shoveling the driveway. Even better, slide them on after a nice warm bath (more on that later).
These awesome $12 socks feature no-slip grip dots on the bottom and come in a variety of colors, including sock monkey gray, white and red. Every top review calls them the perfect winter accessory, and who can argue? No matter what color you get, your feet will look adorably cozy and certainly feel the same.
Sometimes it's more fun to be a little silly, especially when the winter blues roll into town. No matter how old you are or what your usual style is, these unusual Men’s Sneaker Slippers are sure to make you smile. Wear these shoes indoors without regret.
Most reviewers say these slippers are warm and cozy, and for well under $30, they're a killer deal when it comes to novelty footwear. One buyer cautions they were "slip slidin' away" due to insufficient grips on the soles. If they're too slick, a few dots of rubber cement on the soles works as a quick fix.
Rule the (Seasonal) Darkness
While on the subject of the strange and wonderful, it's worth giving a nod to one of the more hilarious trends that has arisen out of people's need to keep warm. The VBIGER "beard hat" — or any novelty hat for that matter — offers some fun protection against the cold. With it, you can be the cozy carbon copy of everyone's favorite Eldritch horror.
Reviewers say it's not the warmest, but it's very soft and a great gag gift. The tentacles do break up chilly breezes a bit, but if you live somewhere truly frigid, like Upstate New York, you probably want to bundle up with something a bit heavier.
No Frozen Fingers
Sure, you could keep in-theme with the Cthulhu hat by getting some wild monster gloves — or at least a matching color set of convertible mittens — but if you prefer more of a discreet look, take a peek at these Fleece-Insulated Women’s Mittens . The classic snowflake design and simple seasonal colors make it easy to match them with any outfit or outerwear.
Aside from running a bit on the small side, reviewers say these $15 mittens are cozy warm and well-insulated. One woman writes that they're even Minnesota-approved. That's a pretty high honor for any winter clothing item.
Roasty Toasty on the Go-sty
Traditional chemical hand warmers certainly work and will keep your fingers thawed in a pinch, but this is the 21st century, and it's time to move on from the disposable past. For about $30, you can grab this Rechargeable Hand and Pocket Warmer from OCOOPA. It's Amazon-recommended and comes in black, pink and light blue.
Consumers can't get over how quickly this little rechargeable warmer heats up or how well it holds a charge. A few reviewers said they had issues with the device charging. The only other complaint was that there was only one warmer, not two.
Lounge in Style
On those blustery mornings when the snow is coming down hard, you need the proper indoor attire. A cute Pajama Set from Hawiton is the perfect example. Sure, you could pull on some fleece pants and an old T-shirt, but would you really be comfortable? Your call.
For just under $30, you could have the perfect loungewear in one of several different styles. Reviewers say they're not too hot and not too cold. You could call them the Goldilocks PJs, because they are just right!
Who says ladies have to have all the fun by themselves? Ditch the polka-dots for some plaid with this comfy Pajama Set from Essentials by Seven. Reviewers mentioned the sizing deviates from the standard, but some said they ran large while others said they ran small.
A couple of complaints mentioned that the fabric felt thin, but others said the pajamas were not only warm but cozy enough to keep them comfortable in a drafty house. The truth likely comes down to how much body heat the wearer generates. Still, for $20, the PJs are a comfy bargain.
Warm All Around
"Cozy" doesn't stop at your fingers and toes. Keep your body warm and your drinks warmer with this Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer . The trusted brand serves up a top pick that very well may be the best $11 you spend this season.
Of the more than 7,000 reviews, most are positive, but two major points of concern come from heating efficiency and safety. Users recommend covering your cup while it's on the heater to keep it hotter as well as using standard flat-bottomed mugs. For safety, just remember to unplug the warmer when it's not in use.
Heedless of the Wind and Weather
Thermoses are pretty diverse and can be bought for a couple of dollars or as much as $50, depending on your preferences. If you want seriously warm coffee, tea or cocoa, no matter how cold it gets outside, YETI makes some of the most durable and reliable travel and camping products, including the 20-Ounce Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler .
YETI is one brand you know you can trust, and most reviewers agree. The 20-ounce tumbler comes in a variety of fun colors and is guaranteed to keep your drink piping hot for hours.
Setting the Scene
Candles are a wonderful way to set the mood, whether you're looking for something fresh, lively or calm. Choosing the right candle, such as the Chesapeake Bay Scented Candle , can be a bit of a challenge, especially when buying online. You can't smell what's on your screen, which could be a problem.
Chesapeake Bay provides detailed, accurate descriptions of their candles and also has a variety of soy-based fragrances. The brand is a bestseller and a favorite of many. More than 2,000 buyers had good things to say about these awesomely cozy candles.
Diffuse the Situation
Just because you don't burn candles, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy seasonal scents. P&J Trading offers an affordable Set of Six Seasonal Fragrance Oils . Negative reviews? One buyer claimed they couldn't smell the oils and another developed rashes after putting them directly on her skin.
The majority of the reviewers applauded the concentration of the fragrances. As for the rashes, never put undiluted oils on your skin. Always mix them with a carrier oil or put them in something else like a body scrub or soap.
Don't Go Without the Cocoa!
Now that you've got your hat, your mittens, your blanket and other items to get cozy, what about warming up your insides after an hour of shoveling snow? Land O’Lakes' Hot Cocoa Variety Pack is the perfect way to warm back up after a chilly excursion.
This 14-flavor pack comes in a gift box, making it a great stocking stuffer or other small gift to beat the winter blues. It's a $17 pick — not a bad price for a jumbo supply.
Tea for Two
There is absolutely no reason you should have to miss out on the seasonal sweetness of winter beverages. Sure, there's always plain peppermint tea, but why keep it simple when you can take it to the next level with Chocolate Peppermint Herbal Tea from Tiesta Tea?
Another popular Amazon favorite, Cocoa Mint Chill is just a touch sweet while packing a whole bunch of flavor. If you're lucky, you might even find this tea or one of the other varieties at your local supermarket. They have rave reviews across the board, and you can even purchase small samplers to try the other flavors.
The snow outside shimmers on the ground, glistening under the radiant winter sun. The scene is cool, remote and beautiful, but you need a 16-Pack of Face Masks from Dermal because your face is peeling and feels like it's two sizes too small and drier than a desert in July.
It's time to stock up so you can treat your face to the TLC it needs all winter long. Relax in the tub or treat yourself on the go with an easy-to-apply facial from a variety of nourishing options. With nearly 4,000 reviews, buyers across the spectrum have had wonderful things to say about these DIY spa treatments.
Hair Care Is Self Care
Continuing down the path of an at-home winter spa treatment for maximum hydration at minimal cost, hair masks are next on the list. Just like facials, hair masks like SheaMoisture's Intensive Hydration Treatment offer leave-on/wash-off treatments that restore moisture to your dry winter hair. Traditional conditioners are useful, but a little boost often goes a long way, especially if you have staticky or frizzy hair.
According to its reviews, this masque works wonders on all hair types. People with very fine hair and exceptionally curly locks all reported wonderful results after using this product. For $9, there's nothing to complain about.
The final stop on the Spa Day Express will be at Tree Hut. The Pear and Chia Seed Exfoliating Sugar Scrub is designed to gently peel away layers of dead and dry skin while moisturizing the tender skin below. The product has a praiseworthy average rating of 4.5 stars from nearly 2,500 people, which is pretty awesome for a product that only costs about $6.50.
The main negative reviews apply to some of Tree Hut's other scrubs, which contain microbead plastics. Some states have banned the sale or manufacture of microbeads because of how harmful they are to the environment. This variety of the scrub swaps out the microbeads for chia seeds.
Say Goodbye to Soreness
Why limit your coziness to the wintertime? Microwave heat packs like the Sharper Image Neck and Shoulder Pad are soothing in the winter and just as useful during the other three seasons. Whether you suffer from cramps, shoulder aches, backaches or are just prone to being chilly, having one of these hot packs handy is never a bad idea.
Another added bonus with this $25 heat pack is that it can double as a cold pack. No matter how you wear it, the soothing fragrance of lavender is sure to calm your nerves. Most of the 300 reviews are positive, although one person claims it doesn't chill very well and another points out that the pack contains wheat.
Heat Your Space
You can't always be home and bundled in your favorite PJs and blanket, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice coziness. Office thermostat wars are no joke, and some workplaces can get downright frigid in the winter. Take control of your environment with your own Personal Mini Space Heater from Amazon.
One of these heaters will run you about $20 but can save your toes from the corporate chill. Reviewers call it a great bargain, an ideal office companion and an inexpensive solution to brisk workplaces. Keeping one running at home will cost you less than a dollar per day as well. That's a pretty hot deal!
Ice, Ice Baby
Most people dread having to go out in the morning and scrape snow and ice off of their windshields. In the past couple of years, the trend of tucking your car in for the night with OxGord's Windshield Cover has become increasingly popular. When you see the results, it's easy to understand why.
The cover snuggles up close to your windshield and wipers, preventing snow, frost or ice from sticking to your windshield. If you live in an area where freezing rain is common, this windshield cover just might become your new best friend. About $30 will keep your windshield ice-free in winter and your interior cool in summer.
Spray, Don't Scrape
If you don't feel like going through the trouble of turning your car into a little burrito every night, that's understandable. Prestone makes a magical Windshield De-Icer Spray that can be purchased for about $4, and it's totally worth that — and more.
About 30 seconds is all it takes for even the iciest motorist to get the job done. From the freezing rain of the Great Lakes region to the agonizing thaw-and-freeze of the mountain west, there's nothing this spray can't handle. The spray works like magic, even if the nozzles are a little on the leaky side.
Winter is one of the best seasons for sports. Hockey, football and basketball all take place during the winter months, so if you're looking for a relevant gift or comfy apparel, look no further than one of the amazing NHL Hoodies from OTS.
They are definitely the priciest option on this list, with prices ranging from $35 to $110, depending on size and team selected. Reviewers said the sweatshirts were thick and warm and fit large and wide, making them absolutely perfect for the ultimate baggy comfort that a sweatshirt should provide.
The Ugliest Sweater
Everyone loves ugly sweaters, and plenty of people love football, so why not combine the two? Make the ultimate ugly sweater by sporting your favorite (or least favorite) team's logo on one of these delightfully atrocious Unisex NFL Ugly Sweaters . Take tasteless holiday apparel to a whole new level by rocking one of these babies at your next office holiday party.
Like the NHL sweaters, they run in a similarly expensive price range, which may not be ideal for someone just looking for a gag outfit. If it's intended as an annual piece or a winter staple for game days, then it might seriously be worth considering, however. If nothing else, you'll be pretty comfy showing off your team spirit.
Never Too Many Blankets
One of the few cozy things about basketball is fluffy, soft Team Throw Blankets . These are significantly cheaper than the wearables the NFL and NHL have to offer, coming in at an agreeable $14. If you want to get ready early for March Madness, this is a great place to start.
Reviewers say it's not the warmest blanket on the market, but it’s absolutely huge! If you're inside at a basketball game or inside your house, you'll probably be plenty warm wrapped up in it. Considering they don't play basketball in outdoor stadiums or rinks, that shouldn't be too much of an issue.
Bring Your Own Sunlight
Seasonal depression or just the "winter blues" can really get you down, and sometimes no amount of coziness can dig you out of your slump. One temporary solution is a Full Spectrum Light . You can also talk to your doctor about long-term seasonal blues, if necessary.
Special bulbs and lights in this model simulate sunlight and help your body produce more Vitamin D, which can help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder and that general sense of lethargy in the wintertime. There's something for just about every price range, but this $40 light is a nice middle-of-the-road option.
An Incontrovertible Winter Essential
The perfect winter picture isn't complete without a good book, no matter where you are or what you do. With nearly 3,000 reviews and prices starting at $10, you can't go wrong with this 4.6-star drama from Kristin Hannah, Winter Garden .
Reviewers say the book is slow to start, but once it gets going, it's impossible to put down. It mixes drama and emotion with a bit of historical fiction for a memorable story that will surely draw you into the group of thousands who have already read and loved this wintertime journey. Even if a vacation is beyond your budget, a good book can take you on a grand adventure.
Let the Blanket Do the Work
There are a lot of electric blankets on the market, and you want to be certain you're choosing the right one. Tefici's Heated Throw Blanket combines safety and savings in an ultra-soft $40 throw. Many of the highest-rated blankets on Amazon still featured a list of negative reviews about the blankets overheating, burning or very nearly catching fire.
This model is regarded as safe and affordable. It's a little on the pricier side, but for a blanket that warms you with no effort on your part and little worry of overheating, that seems like a pretty good deal.
What better way to end the day than with a set of timeless classics that everyone can enjoy? This box set of Classic Christmas Favorites features 10 movies, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, How The Grinch Stole Christmas and The Year Without a Santa Claus.
Prices range from $2 to $15, depending on whether you choose to buy new or used, but no matter what you spend, the memories you will make are priceless. Grab a cup of cocoa or tea, put on your PJs, wrap yourself and your loved ones in a nice warm blanket and put on a movie. It's the perfect way to spend a winter evening because everyone knows there's no place like home for the holidays.
