Ask anyone I know; I’m in a permanent state of coldness. So much so, I need two jumpers, a dressing gown and a hot water bottle to feel even the slightest bit warm all year round.
While everyone else in the office is demanding more fans, I’m wrapped in a blanket and sneakily turning the heating up while no-one’s looking. I know, I’m that person.
Which is why I’m so excited about what I’m about to tell you. There are now heated mouse mats to solve all of our cold-blooded problems in the office.
Exciting, right? Never again will we have to fight with our co-workers about the heating, nor will we have to wear gloves in the office anymore (erm, I haven’t done that… promise).
The heated pad connects to your computer via a USB cable, allowing you to warm your freezing cold hands while hard at work.
According to the description on Amazon, the ‘temperature of the mouse pad will go up to a suitable degree after it is connected to the computer.’ Dreamy.
Created by Black Temptation, the mat is £16.45 and can be separated from the heating pad, meaning you can choose when to use the heater.
So even if you get a bit fed up of having a constantly toasty hand (although I’m not sure who would), you can remove the heating pad and still enjoy the comfort of the pink, fluffy mat.
It does only come in pink at the moment, so if it’s not your colour you might have to wait a little while to see if any other colours get released.
And if that’s not enough and you want to make sure every single part of your body feels the warmth, then I have just the thing for you (well, Amazon do).
Forget your hands, heated foot warmers now exist to rescue your feet from the perpetual coldness they feel every winter.
For those times where fluffy socks and cosy slippers just do not do the trick, the Proaller Foot Warmer has come to the rescue. It’s honestly like a tiny sleeping bag for your feet, made from soft flannel fabric and is equipped with fast heating technology.
There are three different heat settings and a two-hour automatic power-off to prevent your feet from getting too sweaty.
The product description reads:
Both sides are constructed from luxurious ultra plush flannel that is exceptionally durable and warm; the inside soft plush adds extraordinary comfort to your skin.
Only the bottom with heating wires (for safety concern) but the soft the thick flannel cover will keep heat inside the pad and make you warmer.
I mean, this is what dreams are made of really. The amount of times my feet have felt like ice in the middle of the day is ridiculous, I need one ASAP. Who’s offering to buy me one?
And the product can do more than just keep your feet above freezing temperature too, as the online store explains:
The fast heating technology provides you unmatched warmth and pain relief to cold feet, saving feet from poor circulation, arthritis and cold floors.
Besides, it’s perfect for treating sore muscles in your back, shoulders, abdomen, legs, and arms; promote blood flow, or keep you warm.
What can’t it do? With a 4.3/5 review on Amazon, people have been raving about it and encouraging others to stop what they’re doing and buy it.
You can get your hands (or feet) on a Proaller Foot Warmer here.
I know what’s going on my Christmas list…
