As I compile this gift guide for cozy, warming products, I am sitting at my desk in my office, wrapped in a long knit cardigan and a blanket scarf, wearing suede over-the-knee boots and a beanie, shivering. It’s the first really cold day of the season here in NYC, and I am freezing (not that it takes that much work for me to be freezing – the other day, as my co-worker and I walked to a workout class, I whined about the 50 degree weather nonstop). So, it is safe to say that I am one of the people who will need these cozy gifts for cold people.
If you are also always cold, you know how I feel. You love to wear big hoodies, you sleep under piles of blankets, you’re always freezing when someone insists on opening the window because they’re hot, you keep the heat on at all times, and own a million different pairs of socks. Being cold a lot is not great, especially in the winter, when things only get worse. But at least you can dress the part! The below gift options are all ridiculousy cute and practical – they’ll keep you toasty and warm throughout the season and you’ll definitely want to show them off. Check out these cozy gifts for people who are always cold:
1. A Warming Pillow
Yes, this is a heated pillow that looks like a giant s’more. Yes, it is proof that heaven is real. I mean, come on – imagine cuddling up with this pillow. You’ll be so cozy!
S’mores Pillow Warmer, $49.99, Smoko
2. Sweater Leggings
Leggings are so, so comfortable, but I often find that they are also usually too thin to stand up against cold weather. Combat this problem with these sweater leggings. It’s like wearing a sweater on your legs – not only are they super cute, but they’ll be much warmer.
Byzantine Sweater Leggings, $49.95, Free People
3. A Big Blanket
Few things are better than wrapping yourself in a giant, warm blanket when you’re freezing cold. This faux fur blanket from Urban Outfitters is the definition of cozy. It will keep you toasty, and it will look amazing in your bedroom.
Faux Fur Throw Blanket, $89, Urban Outfitters
4. A Pocket Scarf
Do you ever wrap yourself in layers but forget your gloves? It happens to me all the time for some reason. A pocket scarf like this one keeps your hands toasty with or without gloves or mittens.
Shawl Collar Pocket Scarf, $49, Urban Outfitters
5. Flannel Pajamas
Sleeping when shivering is… not easy. Ask for a pair of super cozy pajamas this year so that you can feel warm without piling on the blankets. Aerie makes my favorite flannel PJs – they’re warm without being too heavy, and they’re super soft and comfy.
Aerie Flannel Jogger, $34.99, Aerie
6. Earmuff Headphones
On really cold days, I love wearing a pair of fluffy earmuffs over my beanie, which doesn’t always keep my ears warm enough. Earmuffs are also great for the days I don’t want to mess with my hair with a hat. Unfortunately, wearing earbuds under them is quite uncomfortable. These headphone earmuffs solve that problem, and look cute to boot.
Earmuff Headphones, $28, Free People
7. Hand Warmers
If you sit in a cold office all day, or you know someone who does, these toast handwarmers make a truly terrific gift. They plug into a USB, then go over your hands and keep them nice and warm while typing. And they’re adorable!

8. A Blanket Scarf
A blanket scarf is the best kind of scarf, because when it’s not wrapped around your neck, you can use it like an actual blanket and not look weird. They’re so cozy, and this one from Modcloth is a great price.

9. A Cute Beanie
A good hat is essential for anyone who is always cold. I love this one that explains exactly how you’re feeling and still makes a great addition to any outfit.

10. A Buddha Bowl
I got one of these little Buddha Bowls a few months ago, and I love it. It’s designed so that you can hold it in your hands while you sip soup or tea, or just hold it one hand and use a spoon. It’s so warming and weirdly makes eating a little bit more fun.
The Original Buddha Bowl, $37.99, Houzz
11. Warming Slippers
Why wear regular slippers when you could wear foot warming slippers? These little whale foot warmers are beyond adorable, and they have the added bonus of actually giving comforting heat to your cold toes.
Sea-son To Snuggle USB Foot Warmers, $39.99, Modcloth
12. Knit Socks
A pair of knee over the knee knit socks are a must-have for anyone who is always cold. Wear them over leggings around the house, pair them with a long shirt when your feet are cold but the rest of you isn’t tht cold, or tuck them under your boots for an extra layer. These are so cute with the hanging strings.
13. A Cute Mug
As a very cold person, I spend a lot of my time warming myself up with tea or coffee – and obviously, a good mug is needed for that. I love the mugs from Anthropologie. They’re stupidly pretty.
Mimira Mug, $14, Anthropologie
14. Slippers To Wear Outside
Having a pair of slippers that can be worn outside is great. if you have to run to the store quickly or something like that, you can slip these on and feel cozier. I love these Bearpaw slippers, because they cover your whole foot and they’re SO warm.
Catelyn Slippers, $59.99, Bearpaw
15. A Mug Warmer
If you sit at a desk for work or know someone who does, this donut mug warmer is too cute to pass up. Plug it into a USB plug, then wait for it to warm up so it keeps your coffee or tea nice and hot. That way, you don’t need to rush to finish it!
