While I’m a winter person through and through, even I can admit that there’s nothing worse than kicking off your workday by climbing into a freezing cold car. Sure, you can get a remote start for the car and heat it up ahead of time. But when it’s really cold, even that might not help.
If this sounds familiar, this latest Groupon deal is for you. Save money on something you may never have thought to put in your car — a heated blanket!
Specifically designed for your commute, this heated blanket plugs into your car’s 12-volt DC accessory socket. And while the blanket was originally $40, you can now get it for just $22.99 for a limited time, saving you over 40 percent off of the price tag (42 percent to be exact).
Made of 100 percent polyester, this blanket maintains a warm, comfortable temperature when plugged in and keeps you as cozy as you would be if you had stayed in bed instead of going to work. Just don’t get too cozy — after all, you are driving!
This blanket would make for a great holiday gift if you know someone who is always cold or who has a long commute. It comes in four colors — solid blue and black, red and green plaid — and comes in a plastic storage case with handles so it can be easily stored when not in use.
Will you be purchasing one of these heated blankets for you or someone you know?
Other Gifts To Help Them Stay Cozy
Of course, if you have a friend who’s always cold, then chances are you have already exhausted many of the standard gift options — scarf, hat, fuzzy socks.
But what about a nose warmer?
Yeah, it’s a thing.
That’s right, they are like mini knitted caps made to cover only your nose. According to the website, The Nose Warmer Company started when founder Sally Steel-Jones sought a solution for her own cold nose. It worked so well, she wanted to share her invention. And they are affordable — even with international shipping charges added, a nose warmer only costs about $12. They also come in a variety of colors and patterns, as shown in this Twitter photo from @nosewarmer.
