Valentines’s Day is literally right around the corner (I waited till the last minute to write this) and finding the perfect gift is always a challenge. While chocolates, flowers, tickets to the big game or a new car are all great ideas, this year you might want to consider something a bit different…heated clothing.
If your special someone hates the cold, gets chilled easily or just likes warm feet around the house, heated clothing can be an excellent Valentines gift, a surprise they will love, and use often. In some cases, heated clothing can be a game changer, one that may lead to a whole new, warmer way of life.
Heated clothing not only provides that surprise factor (unless your Valentine is already shopping for heated apparel) but is a gift that will be used for years to come, anytime the weather takes a turn. A heated jacket, hat, socks or gloves can make even the most frigid days more enjoyable. While a traditional jacket helps retain your body heat, eventually you are going to feel the weather.
A heated coat, on the other hand, provides additional warm via the heat zones, your body core never gets cold, allowing you to stay out in the weather for much longer which can be a huge advantage to construction workers, hunters, skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and anybody else who spends a lot of time outside in the winter.
It’s easy and fairly inexpensive to dip your toes in the heated clothing arena. While a heated jacket can run up to $200, there are plenty of cheaper options available these days and you can put some heated socks on your feet for around $40. Regardless of what heated clothing gift you settle on, your Valentine will be delighted by their gift.
