Whether you’re hibernating at home or hosting a few sporting events in the spring, you’ll want these tech gadgets in your winter toolbox. Keep reading to buy heated shirts, a “jurse” and more.

Gadgets to keep warm in winter

Men’s Venture Heat Heated Shirt

This lightweight top is battery operated, so it can keep you warm for up to 6.5 hours. It’s made from a stretchy fabric, so it’s not meant to be bulky (or like you’re just wearing a bunch of panels). It comes in a black and gray style that can be thrown in the wash for easy care.

Women’s Venture Heat Heated Shirt

The women’s style also comes in a purple color, giving you more options for your wardrobe. It has the same rechargeable battery and targets the same three areas of the body as the men’s shirt: shoulders, back and abdomen.

1 x Voice Beanie wireless headphones

Editor’s Note: This pick is out of stock, but the next product is a similar top-rated option.

If you love to listen to music on your walks or while traveling, you’re probably familiar with the problem of your headphones falling out while you’re on the move. This innovative, rechargeable beanie is Bluetooth-enabled, so headphones are built-in and can stream music for up to six hours on a single charge. Plus, it’s also microphone-enabled, so you can make and receive calls with just the press of a button.

iLive Beanie

This second Bluetooth and microphone-enabled beanie option has a three-hour battery life and can be recharged via a USB connection, so it’s a piece where fashion definitely meets function.

B. Long Fashion Le Jurse

Is it a jacket? Is it a handbag? It’s both. Greenberg discovered this two-in-one jacket that you can use as a jacket or turn into a handbag in seconds. It is available in black, beige, denim, a limited edition wine red color and a customizable option. Each style is large enough to hold your phone, credit cards and keys.

The rechargeable heated massaging stadium seat

Editor’s Note: This pick is not expected to ship until March 15th.

Are you going to a sporting event or have you planned a camping trip? This gadget can instantly improve the experience. It not only helps you stay comfortable, but it offers three vibrating massages for your back. It easily folds up on itself (carrying handle included) so you can store it neatly until your next adventure. While you can order it now, this item isn’t expected to ship until March 15.

Aceletiqs Heated Stadium Seat

If you want to get your hands on a heated stadium seat sooner, that option is available now. Although it doesn’t have a massage option, it has a heated bottom, can recline, and also has a place where you can charge your phone. It’s already on sale for $130, but you can apply a coupon to save an additional $50 right now.

The best heated car seat

Editor’s Note: This pick is out of stock, but the next product is a similar top-rated option.

If you have leather seats at your expense (or don’t want to wait for your car to warm up), this is the choice for you. It can reach over 99 degrees Fahrenheit and distributes that heat across the entire surface of the cushion.

Homedics Portable Back Massager Cushion with Heat

This similar car seat not only provides warmth, but it also provides massage. It comes with an adapter for your car and an adapter for your home, so you can use it just about anywhere.

Schumacher 12V Electric Heated Blanket

Whether you’re planning a road trip or refusing to get cold while running errands, this travel blanket can help you stay warm. It’s just over 4 feet long and 3 feet wide, so it can even keep the passengers in the back warm.

Firemizer fire optimizer

If you have a fireplace in your home, this tool can help it burn longer. It’s a reusable mat made from a stainless steel mesh that the brand says helps distribute heat evenly, helping wood burn longer. You will only have to cut it to fit the bottom of your fireplace.

Celestron FireCel Plus Hand Warmers

Editor’s Note: This pick is out of stock, but the next product is a similar top-rated option.

This hand warmer performs a dual function. It will keep your fingers warm for up to 12 hours but also acts as a flashlight. Since it is compact, you can keep it in your pocket or bag to keep warm this winter.

Ocoopa Rechargeable Hand Warmers

This hand warmer has three heating levels that you can use to warm your hands. Only one stove comes in a box, so be sure to order two if you need a full set.
