There are a lot of things I love about winter. All of that crisp air, hope of some really photogenic snow, and holiday cheer really make it a top-notch time of year. (Five stars!) The chilly weather leaves a lot of opportunities to achieve true coziness, and for that I am thankful. However, some of us need a bit of help in the winter accessories department because—how can I say this? The winter months have a tendency to turn me into a wretched, freezing wraith who is cursed to never actually be warm from November to January.
Even worse, it’s not even just a curse for me. My hero of a boyfriend tries valiantly to act as though my feet don’t feel like the stone-cold talons of some kind of glacial banshee when they brush against him while we watch ‘The Mandalorian’—but I know the truth!!! My negative body heat is truly frightening!!!!
So what are we cursed folk, who are just a tad too cold all the time, supposed to do? Until now, my answer had always been spend as much time in a hot bath as possible. But until they invent a combination bathtub-workstation, this is still an imperfect solution.
So I did the research, myself. I’ve gone ahead and done the grueling work of trawling the internet for the best winter accessories for the hopelessly cold. I hope that if we are armed with these tools, our mood rings can finally stop thinking we’re dead and our loved ones can stop recoiling from our touch as if we were actual spooky winter skeletons. Or at least we’ll be able to tolerate a mildly cool office space. Either way, a win!
