Winter is in full swing—which means so is the cold. If you're someone who hates the freezing temperatures, snowy days, and blustering winds that this time of year brings, you could use one (or all!) of the following things in your life. From a smart coffee mug to our favorite space heater, these are the best products to warm you up this winter. 

1. This 'smart' mug that keeps your coffee hot

Ember makes both a regular mug and a travel mug.

Of course I drink coffee for the caffeine hit (who doesn't?!) but in the winter, I also drink it to warm up my insides. So a lukewarm cup of joe just isn't going to cut it. One of our writers put the popular Ember travel mug to the test to see if it could prevent her coffee from getting cold. The verdict? Success! It kept her beverage warm and she could control the temperature directly from her phone.

2. Our favorite weighted blanket

Choose 15, 20, or 25 pounds for the Gravity Blanket.

If you don't have a weighted blanket yet, what are you waiting for? The day I got mine was the day my life changed (a little dramatic, yes, but also true). Here at Reviewed, we recommend the Gravity Blanket after testing it because it's high quality and provides just the right amount of pressure—not too suffocating, but not too light, either.

Slip on the Scuffettes for toastier toes.

Never have I owned a pair of shoes as snuggly and soft as my UGGs. And I'm not the only one obsessed with the brand. People love UGGs, including these cozy suede slippers, because they're great quality and lined with plush shearling that feels like you're walking on clouds.

People love that it keeps your bottom comfortably warm when you get up in the middle of a cold night and that it's easy to install—all you have to do is swap it out with your current seat.

Meet your new cold weather uniform.

Last winter, I impulsively bought The Comfy from Shark Tank—and as someone who is cold 99 percent of the time, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

One of the most obvious ways to stay warm is by turning up the thermostat. And if you have this smart thermostat, you can do that via your phone. It's the best smart thermostat we've tested because the app is so easy to use (it has everything from scheduling to geofencing) and you can even turn the temperature up or down when you're away from home via your phone.
