Correct me if I’m wrong here (even though I’m not)… but it feels like everything, and I mean everything is abnormally cold in winter. Your clothes. Your bed. The toilet seat, ooft, the bloody toilet seat. It seems like you’re freezing from the moment you open your eyes to the moment you shut them again, and everyone must know and relate to how uncomfortably cold you are. Well, you know what you need, a few key winter products that’ll warm you right back up.
Things like electric heat packs, heated blankets and throw rugs, heated towel racks (basically heated anything), as well as comfy hooded blankets and weighted ones — they’re all the MVPs of winter living if you ask me. And for that reason, I’ve gone ahead and hunted down all the winter products you’ll need to help you face the cold snap, so you can stop bitching about it to ya mates.
