Buyer’s Guide: The ‘Hottest’ Holiday Gifts

Here in the land of OnAllCylinders—and for many others in the northern hemisphere—it’s a bit cold outside at this time of year. For those of you who, like us, are braving the winter weather as you scrounge for last-minute gifts, we found some options designed to warm more than spirits.

Some of them are great for warming food, for example. Or beverages. Or even people. (In completely work-appropriate capacities. Get your mind out of the drip tray.)

With that said, here are a few of our favorite “hot” gifts to consider this year:

Pop Up Hot Dog Toaster

Unless you’re one of those folks who eat hot dogs straight from the refrigerator (Why? Just why?), you’ll appreciate the way this old-fashioned toaster perfectly cooks your favorite mechanically separated meat sticks.

Retro Kettle Popcorn Maker

While you’re enjoying those hot dogs, why not complete the meal with some delicious, also hot, popcorn?

Heated Travel Mug

“Mmm, mmm, I sure do love my coffee at room temperature,” said nobody ever. Make sure it doesn’t happen to someone you love.

Engine Grill

Food may or may not taste better cooked on a V8, but if the experience is more fun does it really matter? This grill will leave your steaks hot on the outside, and ideally, warm and red on the inside—like steaks should be.

Highway 21 Radiant Heated Gloves

Perhaps someone you know enjoys riding their motorcycle when the temps drop below freezing. We suspect they’ll enjoy it even more with these heated gloves.

Speaking of staying warm, is anything worse than sitting on a cold seat? These cushioned seat warmers will give someone on your shopping list hours of comfortable heat.


Edelbrock Hooded Sweatshirt

Seat heated, but still cold? Try throwing on one of many comfortable and stylish sweatshirts to keep the top half warm, too.

12V Heated Blanket

If the person on your shopping list is a freeze baby who has taken over the thermostat, why not gift them their very own personal cocoon of warmth?
