Winter is here and so are the holidays, so it’s the perfect time to help out your friends and family members who are cold no matter what the temperature outside is with gifts to keep them toasty and snug. 

Whether it’s in an air conditioned office in June or in a radiator-rattling apartment in the dead of January, there’s always someone who’s complaining about the temperature. And apparently replying, “Why don’t you just build a fire then” is an unacceptable answer.

The compact fan promises to keep your chill pal warm while not blasting hot air everywhere else to make you sweat.
