Always cold? Turn to one of these rechargeable hand warmers. They're more sanitary than blowing on your hands to keep them warm.

Soon enough, we’ll be well into winter — so you probably should pull out your favorite turtlenecks and faux fur jackets to get through the colder days ahead. But even before bundling up, you’ll want to make sure your space heaters are good to go and find an outdoor heater for nights when you’re staying in and out.

Of course, if your hands can’t help but be cold all the time, you might turn to rechargeable and reusable hand warmers that you can hold for a bit of comfort. Some are USB-powered so you just have to plug them in to power them up. Others are battery-powered so you can take them out when you get the slightest of shivers.

With reusable hand warmers, you don’t have to blow on your hands to heat them up. (Though it’s probably best not to blow on your hands at all in the middle of a pandemic). You can also say goodbye to those single-use hand warmer packets, such as HotHands.

Of course, if you are looking for ones that don’t actually need to power up, L.L. Bean has a pack of hand warmers that you can just put in your mittens. Urban Outfitters has microwavable heating pads that can double as hand warmers and are shaped like croissants and, uh, uteruses. Sharper Image has a battery-powered hand cozy that covers both of your hands for $100.

To make things easy, check out our guide to a few of the best hand warmers of the year below.

Your best bet from this list? That would be this $26 hand warmer that has a 4.6-star rating and more than 3,000 reviews on Amazon. As our shopping editors say, it’s “In Its Prime.”
