10 of the best winter warmers

Beat the winter blues with some warming gadgetry

You've heard the forecast. Now time to don the essentials, the not-so-essentials and the downright non-essential...

Heated Gloves


These heated gloves toast your paws to 40 degrees in five minutes – almost too hot to handle, if you ask us.


Red Hot Chilli Jellies


What better way to warm your yap than chomping on jalepeno-flavoured candy? Not suitable for children. Or your friend who thinks chicken satay is spicy.

Midland SubZero Headphones


These lug warmers feed tunes into your ear canals while keeping the biting winds out. Coldplay? Canned Heat? No? Oh, we give up.

Pac-Man Heat-Changing Mug


Liven up your winter bedtime routine with this heat-changing mug. The hotter the Horlicks, the clearer the Pac-Man figures appear. Who knew bedtime could be so gnarly?

Hot Pants


Squeeze these gel-filled hand warming pants to fill your pockets with warmth. Oh, grow up.



This all-in-one sleeping bag suit keeps you snug as you move your bear-like bulk from room to room. The ultimate work-from-home or lazy weekend slobwear.

Beard Head Viking


This hat-tache combo provides much-needed swelter for the oft overlooked upper lip area. And it’s proper Magnum PI territory, not some sorry Poirot effort.

Double Slanket


Sod the tandem. Get a slanket made for two and you’ll be looking sweet and generating double the heat. There’s a song in that somewhere.

Stripey Ski Socks


These stripy ski socks are so thick you can walk to the shops in them. Probably. Best to wear shoes anyway – especially if you're going to hang them over the fireplace for Santa afterwards.

Zippo Hand Warmer


There’s nothing like a roaring fire to keep your mitts warm in winter. This pocket fireplace should keep your tendrils toasty when you’re out and about.
