Always Cold? 15 Random But Genius Items You Need

Whenever I’m in need of a gift for my mother, I tend to cycle through the following categories of ideas: gifts for people who love jewelry, gifts for people who always worry, and gifts for people who are cold all the time. My mother could live in a pizza oven and still have a primarily-wool wardrobe; she’s the type of person who brings a sweater to every restaurant and avoids movie theaters like the plague. Being warm and cozy is her favorite, and being cold is one of the worst things ever to her, trumped only by the combination of being cold and wet simultaneously.

Now that I’ve hit the ripe old age of 24, I’m turning into my mother in more ways than one. I cross my legs in the same way she does, and I yell at people for climbing trees, but I’m suddenly also really opposed to feeling chilly. Items for people who are always cold are beginning to look more and more intriguing to me. I currently own several of the items on this list, including an adult onesie and a heated throw blanket, and I can only assume that by the time I hit 30, I’ll have four of each thing on here. If you’re someone who’s always cold no matter what, you should probably follow suit.
