Winter is coming, but that doesn’t mean we have to be stuck inside.
Although a likely second round of COVID-19 lockdowns looms over us, we needn’t feel trapped in our homes, unable to socialize. There are more than a few products to help transform your outdoor space into a warm and cozy winter wonderland, perfect for hosting a small, physically distanced gathering.
Even if you live in the coldest of Canadian cities, there are outdoor heaters, wool blankets and fire pits available at the touch of a button, delivered right to your door. A matching pair of mittens, scarf and hat will keep you and your friends warm while enjoying a hot cup of cocoa and catching up on the latest.
One of our favourite finds is the Simple Deluxe standing heater. It’s completely cold weather and waterproofed, and doesn’t use propane, meaning it can be used on an apartment balcony, too.
A portable heater is a must-have for any outdoor winter get-together.
