Know someone who wears winter coats during the height of summer? Then here are 26 gift ideas that can warm them up.
My Top Gift Choice For People Who Are Always Cold
Having a fleece throw blanket to snuggle under and carry around with you is a great way to stay warm indoors, as you can use these when lounging on the couch or lying in bed.
We've all got that friend who would wear a scarf in a sauna, right?
The one who always seems to be freezing cold, no matter where they are or what they're doing.
Who turns the central heating up indoors to levels resembling a tropical rain forest, yet still sits there shivering.
Well, how about getting them a gift to help them stay warm the next time their birthday or the holidays roll around?
As this will be a gift that you know they will love and truly appreciate.
Whether it's something to keep them warm at home or when they are out and about braving the elements.
And to help you choose, I've put together the following list of gift ideas for people who are always cold.
1. A Fleece Onesie For Warmth All Over
While they may not be to everyone's tastes, there's no denying that wearing a fleece onesie can make you feel really warm and snuggly when relaxing at home.
So if you have a loved one who wouldn't mind wearing one, they are a great gift idea to keep the cold away.
And you have a great choice of styles and designs with the Forever Lazy range, such as the Christmas inspired onesie above.
As these are made from fleece, and even cover their head and feet too, so the cold has nowhere to penetrate.
And there are zippers in strategic places, so they won't need to strip down to use the bathroom either.
Meaning they'll stay warm and toasty in one of these.
2. A Wearable Blanket Hoodie
Another gift idea that they can wear to warm up at home is a blanket hoodie.
As the name suggests, these are literally fleece lined blankets in the style of an oversized hoodie, and they are perfect to lounge in when you're feeling the cold.
And one that makes for a nice gift for someone who is always cold, is the Ontel Huggle Hoodie.
As this one has a nice Nordic design, is lined with soft Sherpa fleece, and has a big hood to cover their heads too.
3. A Pair Of Wool Lined Slippers
One of the first parts of your body that feel the cold are your feet, and this can make relaxing at home really uncomfortable when your feet turn to ice.
And this can be a big issue for people with poor circulation.
So getting someone with cold feet the gift of a warm pair of slippers is going to be a definite winner.
As these are wool lined moccasin style slippers that will have their feet purring with warmth and comfort.
4. A Warming And Therapeutic Foot Spa
Another way a person with poor circulation can warm up their feet at home is with a foot spa.
As this will allow them to soak their feet and ankles in warm water while relaxing or watching TV on the couch.
And with the added bonus of the jets and rollers giving their feet a lovely massage at the same time.
So something like the WAHL therapeutic foot spa would be a decent gift to give them.
5. A Fleece Throw Blanket To Snuggle Under
There's nothing quite like snuggling under a warm blanket when you're feeling cold.
So getting someone a fleece throw blanket as a gift is a great way to help them get comfortable and stay warm when they are relaxing at home.
As they can carry it around with them to use on the couch, or as an extra blanket while laying in bed.
And one that is guaranteed to keep them warm is the Bedsure Sherpa fleece throw blanket, with the soft fleece on the face and plush Sherpa on the other side.
6. A Heated Throw Blanket For More Warmth
If you want to get someone who feels the cold a throw blanket with a bit more power, then you could go for a heated throw blanket instead.
As these have all the regular warming benefits of a regular throw blanket, such as plush Sherpa and soft fleece linings.
But they can also be heated up electrically too, which means they'll be able to get some serious warmth from one of these blankets.
And an example of a good one is the Sunbeam heated throw blanket, with it's 3 heat settings meaning they can adjust the temperature to the right one to make them feel comfortable.
7. A Portable Heater To Transform Cold Rooms
Having a portable heater in their home can be a godsend for someone who is always cold.
As they can use it to warm up any room of the house when coldness starts to creep in.
So I'm sure they'd appreciate the gift of a portable heater, and one I'd recommend is the TaoTronics oscillating portable heater.
As this one has a ton of temperature control settings, heats up a room fast, oscillates the heat around nicely, and is effective in large or small rooms.
8. Teas, Coffees And Hot Chocolates
Having a nice hot drink is a great way of warming yourself up from the inside when you're feeling a bit cold at home.
So treating a loved one to some specialty teas, coffees, or hot chocolate, can make for a top gift idea.
As these will not only warm them up, but will also help them to relax and unwind in the evenings.
And a set that is packaged up perfectly for a gift is the Tea Forte Warming Joy gift set.
As this contains a porcelain tea cup and lid, a tea tray, and a selection of organic tea blends for them to sample, all in a lovely box that looks really gift worthy.
9. A Temperature Controlled Mug
Another gift idea that can go alongside the tea, coffee, or hot chocolate option, is a temperature controlled smart mug.
As this way they will always have a piping hot drink to sip from.
And these are especially good gifts for busy or forgetful people who make themselves a hot drink, only to let it go cold before drinking it.
So check out the Ember smart mug for one that can keep a hot drink at the perfect temperature for hours at a time.
10. A Towel Warmer
Have you ever experienced having warm towels on hand at hotels and spas? And how comforting and luxurious they felt to use?
Well the good news is that you can buy these towel warmers for your own bathroom too.
And they make for brilliant gifts for people who feel cold at home.
As just popping some towels in there for 15 minutes will give them a blast of warmth as they dry off after a shower.
And they can also warm up bed sheets and even some clothing too, so toasty underwear could be on the cards with this one.
So check out the Live Fine towel warmer if this sounds like an interesting gift idea.
11. A Heated Mattress Pad To Warm Them Up At Night
Getting into a cold bed at night can make it really hard to relax and drift off to sleep.
Which means our next gift idea of a heated mattress pad can be a really popular one.
As with one of these they can warm up their bed before they get into it on a cold night, making it much more inviting and comfortable.
And for one with plenty of options, check out the Sunbeam heated mattress pad.
As this one is zoned, meaning they can heat up the section of the bed that they need warmer, without having to warm up the whole thing.
And with 10 different heat settings, they'll be sure to find the right one for them.
12. A Hot Water Bottle And Cover
If you want a stocking stuffer gift idea for cold nights that is a bit more old school, then how about getting them a hot water bottle?
As once filled with hot water from the kettle, they will provide comforting warmth they can snuggle up with, whether in bed or on the couch.
And they are also great to use for soothing things like stomach cramps or tight muscles too.
So get them a hot water bottle with the funky cover of your choice, with my favourite being the fox design above.
13. A Stuffed Toy They Can Heat Up
An interesting alternative to a hot water bottle as a gift is to get them a Warmies microwaveable stuffed toy instead.
As they do a similar job, but rather than filling them with water, you stick these toys in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up.
And then you can carry them around with you to snuggle up with and benefit from that heat.
So they can make great gifts to give, as they look cute, feel soft to the touch, and are much nicer to hold and have around than a hot water bottle.
And they give off a lavender scent too, which is great for helping you to relax.
14. A Warm Winter Jacket
We all need to wrap up well and be sensible to stay warm when the cold weather hits, but this is especially the case if you're someone that feels the cold more than most.
So getting them a warm winter jacket is a gift that they can use throughout the winter to stay warm and dry.
And for this I'd recommend Carhartt jackets, as these have great warmth, and help to protect them against the wind and rain, yet are not overly bulky or uncomfortable to wear.
As both of these have all the warmth, comfort, and protection they need to get them through the winter in one piece.
15. A Thermal Base Layer
In Sweden they have a saying that there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong choice of clothing.
And as they get more than their fair share of arctic weather we should probably listen to them.
Because what they are saying is that if you layer up your clothing correctly, then the cold weather won't be able to touch you.
So getting someone who is prone to feeling the cold a good thermal base layer to wear, will give them the foundation they need to be able to stay warm.
As this layer is responsible for retaining as much of their body heat as possible, while also wicking away any sweat to keep them dry and warm.
16. Winter Boots To Keep Their Feet Toasty
The cold will always bite your extremities, such as your feet, hands, and ears, the most when it's freezing outside.
This is because your body goes into survival mode in Baltic conditions, and conserves most of it's heat and blood flow to protect your internal organs, heart, and the center of your body.
So it's no surprise that your feet can feel like blocks of ice when outside in the cold for too long.
Which makes getting someone a warm pair of boots to keep their feet happy the ideal winter gift.
And UGG make boots that are ideal for this purpose, with their sheepskin and wool lining meaning they are extremely warming and comfortable.
17. Merino Wool Socks
Another gift that can keep someone's feet warm on cold days is to get them a few warm pairs of socks.
As there are some great thermal and woolly socks available that will have their feet roasting inside their boots.
As not only will these keep their feet warm and insulated, they'll also wick away sweat to keep their feet dry and comfortable too.
18. A Box Of Insole Foot Warmers
Our final gift idea to keep their feet warm when outside in the cold is the HotHands insole foot warmers.
These are air activated insole warmers that provide a safe and natural heat, which they can stick to the bottom of their socks,
And this will warm up their feet from the soles up, keeping the cold out.
So having a box of these heat packs around is always going to be handy for them.
19. Gloves For Warmer Hands
Having cold hands an frozen fingers can be a painful and uncomfortable part of winter unless you invest of a good pair of warm and insulated winter gloves.
So these make for the ideal gift for someone who spends a lot of time outside in the cold.
And a good pair to go for are the Columbia Heavenly women's winter gloves.
As these are quilted on the face, have a micro fleece lining that is super warm and comfortable, and a faux fur cuff to keep the drafts out.
And there is a touchscreen compatible fingertip that allows them to use their smartphone without taking the gloves off.
While for the guys, you could check out the Columbia Thermarator gloves, which are also really warm and comfortable.
20. A Box Of Hand Warmers
HotHands also do packs of hand warmers, and these are ideal little gifts to help someone keep their hands warm when outside in the wintertime.
All they need to do is remove one from the packet, give it a shake, and the air will activate the heat and warm it up.
Then they can either hold it in their bare hands to keep them warm, or slip it inside their gloves to provide even more heat.
So the HotHands hand warmers are great things to have in their pocket when they're out and about and need to warm their hands up quickly.
And so much more effective than simply blowing into their hands.
21. A Stylish Beanie Hat To Keep Their Head Warm
People lose a lot of their body heat through their head when out in the cold.
So this is one of the most important areas to have covered when it starts to get chilly outside.
Which means a stylish and warm beanie hat is going to be a nice little gift idea to keep someone warm in the cold.
And for good quality beanies in a range of colours and styles, check out the ribbed beanies at Urban Outfitters.
22. A Blanket Scarf To Stop Drafts
Another essential piece of winter clothing is a good scarf.
However, rather than getting someone a regular scarf to wear, how about getting them a blanket scarf instead.
As these are bigger, thicker, and more versatile pieces of clothing that can be wrapped around their neck in a variety of ways to keep the wind out.
And they are also very fashionable too, making great accessories to a woman's outfit.
So for a really good one that comes in many different styles, check out the Wilfred Diamond Mosaic blanket scarf at Aritzia.
23. Versatile Buff Headwear
Buff headwear are a really interesting alternative to traditional scarfs at wintertime.
As they are so much more versatile in how you can use them.
Because as well as wrapping them around your neck, you can also pull them up to cover your face, or wear them as a balaclava to cover your head and ears too.
And they're also pretty useful in the summertime, if you use them as a headband or skull cap to keep the sun off.
So getting them some Buff headwear can be a really cool and versatile gift idea.
24. A Thermos Flask For Hot Drinks
One of the best ways to warm up from the cold is from the inside out, with the help of a hot drink.
As a nice warming cup of tea or coffee can really give you that inner glow, and bring your body heat back up to a more comfortable level.
So getting someone who is always cold a thermos flask to take outside with them is a top gift idea.
As this way they'll always have a hot drink on hand when they need one.
And a great choice for this is the Thermos Work Series 40 flask.
As it's small enough to carry around easily, and can hold up to 1.2 litres of tea or coffee and keep it warm for up to 24 hours at a time.
25. A Patio Heater For Some Outdoor Warmth
People that feel the cold more than others may be put off from venturing outside so much because of it.
Which is a bad thing, as it's not good for their health and well-being to be stuck inside all the time.
So a gift idea that can allow them to get some fresh air but without feeling the chill, is to get them a patio heater for the yard.
As by using gas as their fuel, these heaters will give off a constant burst of heat that will keep them warm and toasty, even when it's really cold outside.
Which means they can continue to enjoy evenings in their garden, long after the last days of summer have passed.
So check out the Hampton Bay patio heater if this sounds like something your loved one would appreciate.
26. A Heated Car Seat For Winter Mornings
Another place that can feel cold during the winter time is your car, especially first thing in the morning when you first get into it.
And while many modern cars now come with great heating options that will have you feeling warm and toasty within a matter of minutes, others still struggle to warm up.
Which can leave you feeling cold and uncomfortable as you are driving to work.
So a heated car seat cushion can make for a lovely gift for someone whose car heating system leaves a lot to be desired.
As this will have the drivers seat feeling warm and toasty within a minute, which will be lovely for their cold backside.
You just simply fit one of these on top of the car seat, plug it into the cigarette lighter, and it's good to go.
So check out the Kingleting heated car seat cushion for a gift that can help a loved one drive more comfortably on cold winter mornings.
It can be really frustrating for those that feel the cold more than others.
As shivering and feeling uncomfortable, both inside and outside the house, is no-ones idea of fun.
So why not treat a loved one who feels the chills to a gift that can help keep them warm.
As the gift ideas for people that are always cold that I've given you here will all help to do that, no matter where they are.
