Are you currently bundled under numerous blankets now? Have you drank several cups of tea today and put on multiple pairs of socks? The winter blues are in the full force and there’s one super quick, super cute fix. Heated slippers are a thing and they’re glorious. Because, yes, you do need a pair of very sassy, very warm slippers on your feet ASAP.
Holy puppy heaven! Our cozy, couch-potato dreams just came true. Urban Outfitters released these adorable Smoko Corgi Heated Slipper, and we're downright obsessed. Not only are they cute, but they're incredibly useful for the Winter months ahead.
All you have to do is plug them into a USB computer port or wall adapter to turn on the heat. Once they're toasty, unplug them and enjoy for up to an hour. These slippers only come in one size, but they fit women who wear up to a 12 in shoes. The design is super soft and plush, so it practically feels like you're walking on clouds when you slide these adorable doggies onto your feet.
Whether you're gifting these little Corgis to a friend or just treating yourself, someone is going to be quite happy. Get them before they totally sell out!
When your office feels like an arctic tundra, fingerless gloves are certainly one option. But maybe you’re looking for something a bit more, uh, flashy.
Ta-da: Toast hand warmers from Smoko. Like your standard heated fingerless pair, the warmers plug into your computer’s USB port and heat up from there (in less than a minute, we might add). But these guys have the added feature of being shaped like two slices of toast that smile back at you, all kawaii and such. (We’d be smiling, too, if we weren’t So. Damn. Cold.)
No word yet on what our boss thinks about our new…fashion.
The only thing worse than having to trek through the cold, miserable weather every morning in order to make your commute to work is making it to the office only to find that it's just as frigid inside as it is outside. Trying to get work done in a freezing office feels almost impossible sometimes, no matter how many cups of hot coffee you drink or how plush your blanket is. If you'd rather not spend an entire workday shivering, Smoko has your back, because you can now buy these toast-shaped handwarmers that'll keep your hands nice and warm all day long.
We have found the best cozy Winter accessory of all time. These Smoko Plush Unicorn Heated Foot Warmer Slippers ($40) combine all of our favorite things. For starters, they are mythical creatures, but the significant feature is that they warm up. All you have to do is plug them into a USB computer port or wall adapter to turn on the heat. Once they're toasty, unplug them and enjoy for up to an hour. Such a brilliant idea!
If pink isn't your thing, this cute pair also comes in purple. We found a narwhal version as well. They're only available in one size, but they can fit up to a women's 12 shoe. We are so excited to test out these slippers — it's like wrapping each foot in an electric blanket.
These slippers would be a fun, creative gift idea, but we don't blame you if you just want to buy them for yourself. Get them on Amazon now!

London-based designer and illustrator Joe Stone is back with a follow-up project. Titled ‘Drewbacca’, this new series follows the theme of his ‘Drawntroopers’ project. With some humorous wordplay and visual puns, he imagines ‘Chewie’ from Star Wars as ‘Queuebacca’ (waiting in line), ‘Loobacca’ (sitting on the loo), ‘Stewbecca’ (cooking a stew), and more.
If riding a giant log down a steep mountain sounds like an ideal way to spend a quiet spring afternoon, theOnbashira Festival is for you. Held every 6 years in Nagano, Japan, the festival involves moving enormous logs over difficult terrain completely by hand with the help of thickly braided ropes and an occasional assist from gravity as the logs barrel down hills. The purpose is to symbolically renew a nearby shrine where each log is eventually placed to support the foundation of several shrine buildings. The event has reportedly continued uninterrupted for 1,200 years.
