Yes, we know, it was 60 degrees last week, but it’s still February and weather is a fickle beast. So don’t go packing up all your winter gear quite yet. After all, we had a mild winter last year until early March came and smacked us with snow for a week!

It’s always better to be prepared for wintery weather when it strikes. You don’t want to be caught outside in gym shorts and a pair of sandals when the temperature suddenly drops, do you? You’ll be a prime target for those pesky neighborhood kids who like to run by underdressed neighbors and pelt them with snowballs!

So hold off on the spring-cleaning for another month and keep your winter clothes and tools in reach, because you never know when the winds may change and unleash their icy wrath upon your neighborhood. 

If visions of blizzards past make you feel slightly overwhelmed and unprepared, have no fear! There is still time to assemble the ideal suite of cool inventions to help you fight back against Old Man Winter.

For starters, take a gander at these two incredibly cool inventions for sale here at Quirky. These cool gifts will be sure to aid you in your conquest over winter and lead you safely into spring! 

Two Totally Cool Winter Gifts

Digit Tips 

Frozen fingers are the pits. No doubt about it. There’s not much worse than a numbed-out hand, struggling to regain circulation, useless and maladroit…

And the real fun starts once you go back inside and your hand starts to thaw and throb as the frozen nerves come back to life and flood your brain with a million receptor signals all communicating the same message, Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

Losing feeling in your hands is no joke. Frostbite can be serious and precautions should be taken to keep warm. The best move you can make on the preventative front is to wear a pair of gloves.

Gloves have been around for as long as cold hands. They come in every style and color you can imagine, and everybody has their own preference for what type of fabric is best. Maybe you’re a basic knit kind of person, or maybe you prefer thicker, heavy-duty gloves. Whatever your preference, one thing is for sure – your gloves have a flaw. 

While gloves are great and have served us well for centuries, all gloves suffer from the same defect. This defect is the Achilles’ Heal of gloves, or the thermal exhaust port to their Death Star, if you prefer a Star Wars analogy.  Regardless of your analogical preference, the fact of the matter is gloves, yes all gloves, possess a major defect – they don’t work on touch screen devices!

It’s crazy! We live in the modern world where everyone needs to be connected. How has this major oversight in innovation not been remedied?

Well, good news! It has!

Here at Quirky, one of our genius inventors devised a nifty little winter gift called Digit Tips.

Digit Tips are little pads that you attach to the fingers of your favorite gloves. The pads are made from conductive silicone, which allows you to use and control all of your touch screen devices!

Digit Tips fit all glove sizes and types, so no matter what style you prefer, the power to use your phone without freezing your fingers is yours for the taking!

Zeus + Thor Snow Bundle

Just imagine for a moment: you’re lying in bed, warm and cozy, your head is filled with dreams of distant lands so vast you feel compelled to take to the sky and fly like a bird! But then your alarm clock goes off. It blares in your ear until you get out of bed. It’s 6:30 a.m. in the middle of February. It’s dark outside and you know it will be cold. You trudge to the bathroom, brush your teeth and get dressed. Visions of the Dunkin Donuts drive-through propel you, the nutty aromas of hazelnut coffee and a glazed treat.

But then you open the door and see the snow, half a foot piled on top of your car.

You’re shoulders slump and your spirits drop. You put on a pair of gloves and begin swiping at the snow on your windshield, getting icy flakes down your sleeves and onto your wrists! 

This friends is what we at Quirky call a bad morning.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. The despair and cold wrists could have easily been avoided. All you needed was a simple tool: The Zeus + Thor Snow Bundle.

The Zeus + Thor Snow Bundle is a shovel, brush, and ice scraper all in one!

The long handle allows you to brush snow off the roof of your car without getting it all over you, and the ice scraper lets you dig in and remove all vision-obscuring frost from your windows. Plus, the collapsible handle extends to form a full-size shovel so you don’t have to struggle against the packed-down snow beneath your tires.

This epic snow brush, ice scraper, and shovel will totally change your bad winter morning into feelings of victory and dominance over nature, which is what being human is all about! 

We hope these cool winter gifts help you plow through the cold into spring. If you’ve used either the Digits Tips or Zeus + Thor Snow Bundle, leave us a comment below and tell us about your experience. We’d love to hear from you!
