As we approach the end of winter, you may be wondering what else you can do to make the most of the remainder of the season whilst following the pandemic’s health and safety protocols. But so long as you’re socially distanced, you can still enjoy some fun, whether indoors or outdoors. According to the CDC, facilities for snow sports will be regularly disinfected, but make sure to wear masks anyway. We’ve listed a few gadgets and accessories for a warm and enjoyable winter season. And even if you’re more of a homebody, you’ll still find something on this list that you’re sure to like.
Looking for an eco-friendly alternative for warming up a room? Look no further than Egloo, a 3-in-1 humidifier, heater, and oil diffuser. It’s eco-friendly because it’s powered only by candle wicks, as compared to less sustainable, more heavy-duty, and more costly equipment that requires electrical power or gas. It works by lighting wicks and filling a surrounding well with water and a scent of your choice. Cover it with its two nested domes, and in five minutes, your room will be warmer and more fragrant. Extinguish it by blowing it like a candle.
If you’re looking for a heater that more closely resembles the comforting sight of a campfire or fireplace but without the smoke and the mess, try a tabletop fireplace. It’s another mini and more sustainable method to warming a room. It features a steel burner flanked by two panes of tempered glass for your safety. It burns clean bioethanol fuel and produces a fume-free fire. Best of all, you can place it atop any table surface to bring warmth to the room.

The ToastyMUG’s ergonomic handle envelops your hands, keeping heat from escaping them and helping them to stay warmer.
