As the northern hemisphere edges closer to winter, my mind turns to creative ways to keep warm. The trouble is, I live in an old house and renovating to make it more heat-efficient or turning the thermostat higher aren’t really good options. Basically, from September to April I constantly live under a blanket, but I still get cold. Particularly my hands and feet. Sure, I have slippers, but they rely on the heat generated by my feet and that’s not always enough. And my hands just have to fend for themselves, especially since I spend a great deal of time on the computer.

Let a Yeti Keep You Warm

Yeti USB Foot Warmers! I need these, posthaste! All you have to do is slide your feet into the Yeti feet (they fit most adults, up to a men’s size 12), plug them into any open USB port, and you’re well on your way to having cozy feet. They’re compatible with any USB-enabled device that can handle 5V, 3W with 1.5M USB line, and come with a 57 inch (about 145 cm) cord. Each slipper’s outside dimensions are 5″ x 12″ (or about 13 x 30.5 cm), and they only weigh 5 ounces (about 142 g).

Let a Yeti Keep You Warm

And then there are these! These are Yeti USB Hand Warmers, and I really need a pair immediately if not sooner. I’ve got all sorts of USB ports, and even if I didn’t, I could certainly make some adjustments in order for my hands to stay warm enough to type without issues. These also have a 57″ cord with the same technical specs, and each one measures 5 1/2″ square (about 14 cm). What I love the most about them is they leave your fingers open while keeping them warm, so if you’re a touch typist you can wear them while using a computer!

Both the hands and feet are made of a cotton/polyester blend, and while they are not washable they can be spot cleaned as necessary with a damp cloth and mild detergent. They are recommended for ages six and up, probably due to the USB cords. The feet have only one temperature, while the hands are adjustable from low to high heat.


I can see me now, snuggled under the afghan my grandmother knitted for me, my feet happily ensconced in Yeti feet, my hands reveling in the toasty warmth of Yeti hands, loving life. And for just $24.99 US per pair, I don’t know why I don’t already own them.
