10 Gadgets to Keep You Warm This Season

10 Gadgets to Keep You WarmAs a So Cal resident, I’m not the first to complain about the unbearable cold winters (although, we have been known to complain about tepid 60 degree weather.) But having lived in cities like Chicago, NYC, and D.C, I do know how hard it can be to keep warm (and stay warm) during the winter months. So instead of suggesting grabbing a blanket and some hot coco by the fire (even though that sounds amazing!), I thought I would round up some cool gadgets that can help you stay warm throughout the season, and those to come.

Have you found any technology that has been helpful through the winter? Share your discovery in the comments below.


1. Heated mouse, $34.95
2. Satin striped heated blanket, $119-$199
3. Heated seat cushion, $68.99
4. Crane space heater, $36
5. Patterned knit headphones, $29.99

    Don’t buy the Crane spaceheater! It has no handle and no auto shut off if it tips. It tipped over on my leg and the metal facing burned itself into it, then I burned my fingers trying to get it off me.

    A couple years ago, I had a friend who had bought USB mittens – they were mittens that came with a detachable USB cord. You could plug the cord into your computer and make those mittens toasty warm. She loved them but I’m not sure where she got them from…

    I never heard of a heated mouse, why a heated mouse, I can see everything else being used except a heated mouse.

    No way! Sunbeam has a foot warmer that goes under your mattress pad, at the bottom of your bed. Turn it on an hour or so before bedtime and the feeling is awesome to slip into. Worth every penny.
