I swear, no one knows how to get awesome presents quite like my grandma. She is just one of those people who knows exactly what to get, even when you don’t know what you want. She knows that I always struggle with cold feet. I’m fine dealing with winter and at home I’ll bundle up in a sweater and a blanket rather than turning up the oil heater. However, my toes are sort of really long, so even in fuzzy socks and slippers they get so cold it hurts. If I don’t have the oil heater running high enough, I get painful with the cold in my feet. Then the only way to find relieve is take a bath to get them under hot water for a little while. However, since my water heater is also powered by the oil heater, rather than an electric water heater, this too wastes fuel that I really don’t have the money to replace. Then on Christmas Day I opened up my present from Grams to find the perfect solution–an electric footwarmer! It’s kind of like an electric blanket, but instead of just being a cover it makes a little pocket of heat to stick your feet in. I can take it with me everywhere in the house, from the couch to the office, and even into bed with me. The electric foot warmer actually heats my feet up so they’re comfy–no more pain–and all without turning up the oil heater. Plus since the electric footwarmer is really low wattage, it doesn’t run up the utility bill like a space heater would.
