My grandmother is one of those lovely people who always know exactly what to gift people with. I thought she just did this with me because we’re so close, but all of my cousins and aunts and uncles are the exact same way–every birthday and Christmas we get the perfect present for us. Every time winter rolls in, I suffer from cold feet that nothing but hot water can cure once it sets in. I try not to turn up the central heater via the thermostat, as its a silly thing to heat the whole house for. Last winter, my grandmother surprised me with an additional last minute gift. She told me it wasn’t going to get to her in time for our holiday get together, so she had it mailed to my apartment instead. One week later, I was surprised by sizable box that contained an amazing foot warmer. The foot warmer is a lot like an electric blanket. Instead of being one electric blanket, its two that are sewn together to make a pocket for your feet to go into. Instead of having to turn up the thermostat to warm my feet up–which are always cold–I can just plug in the foot warmer and adjust the setting. I can move the foot warmer easily from my home office to my bedroom. This HVAC device is so small that it doesn’t run up the electric bill to operate. Plus, it saves us on fuel for the oil heater, which saves us money on our home heating bill. My little foot warmer is one of the best presents I’ve ever received.
