    The cold is here, and everyone living in the Downtown Denver apartments will tell you just how harsh this season can be. Sure, it isn’t Alaska, but the weather is still a nuisance at times in the Mile-High City. If you plan on getting used to what winter is like in the ski capital of America, then there are a few things you need to make your life easier.

    Now, this list isn’t going to focus on the blatantly obvious. You know as well as the next person that you need heat and warm clothing. Instead, this list is all about products that can turn your winter from a miserable one into something far more manageable and even convenient. It’s 2018, and these are the 10 best winter products on the market.

    1. 180s Bluetooth Ear Warmer

    If you spend any amount of time outside during the winter, then these ear warmers are a life saver. Their sleek and comfortable design makes them easy to wear, while their Bluetooth capability allows you listen to music or talk on the phone without freezing your ears off. Plus, that means they’re cord-free as well. For only $49 on Amazon, you can keep your ears warm for years to come.

    2. Desktop Heated Mug Warmer

    These handy little devices are a mere $10, but don’t let their cheap price tag fool you. With a desktop mug warmer, you can keep your fresh cup of coffee from turning cold throughout the day. Whether you use one in the morning before work or keep one on your desk, they come in handy.

    3. Toasty Toes Ergonomic Heated Foot Warmer

    Sitting at a desk all day doesn’t help you fend off the cold, but this foot warmer will. The ergonomic design helps you maintain good posture at your desk, while the simple on/off switch means you can warm up your toes anytime. It’s a smart investment if you work at a computer most of the day.

    4. Icedozer Mini 2.0

    This handy-dandy device incorporates multiple ice scraping tools into one. Simply hold the handly in the middle and take advantage of various chippers, scrapers, and a brush to clean of your windshield in no time. The design gives you a little extra power behind your grip, making it more efficient than a standard windshield scraper. Saving time while standing in the cold is something those in the city of Denver love.

    5. Snow Wolf Snow Shovel

    Shoveling snow is a burden that everyone in the city must bear, but it doesn’t have to be such a pain. This simple invention places a wheel in the middle of a snow shovel, offering a way to lift snow without placing pressure on your lower back. You can tackle your driveway three times as fast thanks to this one minor advancement to a timeless design.

    6. Dyson AM05 Hot + Cool Fan Heater

    Dyson’s bladeless fan offers the best space heater on the market. This particular model is excellent for apartments, but you can always pick up a larger size if for more spacious rooms. Despite looking like a prop from a sci-fi movie, this unique fan produces massive heat all winter long. Plus, it doubles as a cold air fan in the summer.

    7. Nest Smart Thermostat

    Depending on the type of heat your home uses, you might end up paying more in utilities than you would like this winter. Thankfully, Nest has a smart product that offers a solution. By learning your heating and cooling habits, this nifty thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature while helping you reduce your carbon footprint. Best of all, you can crank up the heat using your smartphone before ever leaving the warmth of your blankets in the morning.

    8. Holmes Ultrasonic Cube Humidifier

    Target has it all, and this humidifier is a must-buy from the retail store. Its low-profile allows you tuck it away in any room while reaping the benefits of moisturized air all winter long. Low maintenance, quiet, and sleek, there’s no better way to beat the dry indoor air this season.

    9. Thermacell heated Insoles

    Tired of your feet freezing as you wait for the bus, scrape ice off your windshield, or simple step outside for more than ten seconds? Thermacell’s insoles provide a remote-controlled way to heat your feet in an instant. Not only are they practical, they’re incredibly comfortable and provide ample support.

    10. Agloves Touchcreen Gloves

    Gloves are must when dealing with the elements, but you can’t exactly use your phone while wearing them. That’s where these gloves come in handy. They’re fashionable, warm, and allow you to use any touchscreen device while wearing them. There’s nothing like answering your calls or playing Candy Crush without having to lose your fingers to frostbite (it’s never cold enough for that to happen, but you get the idea).
