There’s nothing that is cozier than candles, and they make a great gift. You can get the old-fashioned kind, with flames and lovely scents. But if you are concerned about safety, these days there are lovely LED candles that look totally real. They are safe and affordable. Check them out here.

7. Oversized sherpa blanket sweatshirt

10. Great wool socks

OKISS / Amazon

In my book you cannot go wrong giving socks — and there millions of versions for every type of person. I’m partial to the latest blends of wool, which are warm and wicking, and cute, like the ones pictured here. Check them out here.

11. Bluetooth hat

HIGhEVER / Amazon

Last year, we got one of these hats with imbedded Bluetooth speakers as a kind of gag gift for someone. But somehow we ended up with it, and it’s awesome! It’s just like using Bluetooth earphones, but it also keeps your head warm while you’re out playing in the cold. Buy it here.

12. Godiva Chocolate of the Month Club
