Winter is here, which means we have alot of warming-up to do to the idea of walking from class in the cold (see what I did there?).
After class, one of a college student’s least favorite parts of the day is walking back to the dorm in the cold. Sometimes, not even a peppermint mocha can save you.
To make the stroll a bit less life-shattering, here are 20 things to make your destination cozy and warm in the winter, thanks to Amazon.
1. Amazon Echo Speaker
You’ve just made a new best friend that’s totally down for a day in the dorm. Meet Alexa- the voice of the Amazon Echo speaker. Check the weather, ask questions, hear some cheesy jokes and play music from Pandora, iHeart Radio, Spotify and more, all while using voice control. Thankfully, you don’t ever have to think about leaving bed to change to the next Chainsmokers song. Dorm GOALS.
2. Battilo Luxury Cable Knit Throw Blanket
Just like our beloved oversized sweaters, this blanket will be on the top of your christmas list. Bonus: it’s super affordable at under $40! Just heavy enough to keep you warm while still being extremely soft? Score.
3. Neurologicandles Synesthesia Aromatherapy Candles
Beat finals week stress with the aromatherapy candle to rule them all. Synesthesia (Greek: ‘To perceive together’) is a neurological phenomenon in which senses overlap, and stimulation of one sensation leads to the automatic stimulation of a second or third sensation, resulting in multi-sensory experience such as seeing numbers as colors or tasting words. This candle comes in two awesome scents: lavender and pomegranate, each one carefully crafted to create the best sensory-calming experience possible. We never want to leave our dorm room again.
4. Floopi Fur-Lined Clog Slippers
Two words: fur lined. *mic drop* extra surprise: they’re made with memory foam.
5. Southern Marsh Appalachian Pile 1/4 Zip Sherpa Pullover
In 11 super cute colors, this pullover is an absolute must-have. Layering doesn’t have to be just for outside. Chill in this masterpiece and you may never need (or want) bae’s hoodie again.
6.”The snuggle is real” pillow cover
7. Yeti Stainless Steel Thermal Tumbler
This tough-as-nails tumbler keeps drinks hot OR cold virtually all day, and ice won’t melt for hours. Coming in varying sizes and designs (collegiate logo designs available), this is the greatest thing since your Swell bottle. Plus, with it’s no-sweat design, frostbitten fingers are a thing of last semester.
8. YakTrax Cabin Socks
Infused with aloe and lined in sherpa, these socks are perfect for a college student. Throw ’em on under your bean boots for class or wear them with your favorite pajama pants and you’re set for the winter. You’ll love them just as much as your infinite collection of christmas socks.
9. Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphone
Chainsmokers, this is your (second) cue. Jam out around the dorm while your roommate is studying. Liiiiit.

Save your furniture from watermarks (and your parents from dorm damage fees) with these adorable coasters. They’ll look awesome under that Yeti cup.
11. Tassel Wall Hanging Tapestry by The Woven Home
These can’t possibly get any cuter. Available in white or grey, these are the perfect match for that knit blanket. P.S- they’re handmade using naturally-sourced tree branches from Minnesota.
12. Natural Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp
If you’re looking to give your room a boho vibe, this is sure to get you all in the right feels. Plus, it’s also said to relieve anxiety and insomnia. This has “college” written all over it.
