Personal Heater

The winters are hard on a kid eating ramen noodles and wearing fuzzy socks from last Christmas as everyday socks to stay warm. Especially if their college of choice was somewhere on the east coast. Plus, bunking with another college student and having polar opposite comfort preferences has gotta be tough. For all this and more, a personal heater makes for a great Christmas gift! Plus, they can take it anywhere! Whether they're hanging out in their dorm room or cramming assignments in the library, they'll always be warm!
