As of this writing, parts of the U.S. are experiencing historically cold winter weather. In fact, mid-west states that usually take cold in stride are dealing with -20 degree temperatures, which is colder than temps in Antarctica. Sure, Antarctica is currently in summer, so their toasty 10 degrees above zero are on par for the season. But I doubt that makes folks in Illinois and Michigan and Wisconsin and wherever else feel better (or warmer) about the switch up.
Just thinking about it makes me shiver, so I went looking for Valentine gifts to warm your sweetie’s body and heart. And these picks are up to the job.
This pretty red wool covered hot water bottle is a generously sized warmer. It’s 9-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches and holds 27 ounces of water. The handmade merino wool cover encases the thermoplastic bottle in a soft and comfy heart-shaped pillow-like cover that will look pretty on a bed or chair between uses. Available at UncommonGoods. $48.
Ok. The bed is being warmed with the pretty hot water bottle. But the feet are still on the sofa. You can keep them warm and toasty with these soft and comfy ballerina herbal warming slippers. Their microwavable insoles contain aromatic lavender buds and thermally conductive flax seeds. Just give ’em a zap, put ’em in the slippers, slip on the slippers and relax. Available in red, natural, or black in women’s sizes 5-10. Available at UncommonGoods. $48
The bed is warming, the feet are toasty, but there’s still a chill in the air. This super soft claret red baby alpaca wool throw brings full-body wrapped in warmth comfort. It’s a generous 65 inches by 51 inches of alpaca softness from the season’s first shearing (hence “baby”). Made by Felipe Berckholtz in Peru and available at Novica. $190.
