For years, when the temperature turned cold, and old man winter was making his presence known, most of us would reach for our coat, hat, scarf, and winter boots. However, there is another item that many are reaching for this winter—nose warmers.
I know, you are thinking to yourself—nose warmers? Seriously?
Yes, seriously. It would seem these small knitted pieces of winter wear are taking the cold weather scene by storm (excuse the pun).
The creation was dreamed up by the owner of The Nose Warmer Company. The story as to how this item came to be, as listed on the website itself, is:
“Our business started small, with one nose warmer made specifically to do the job of warming up a nippy nose. Our owner soon realized that she wasn’t the only one with this problem.”
So The Nose Warmer Company was born.
The company itself is based in the United Kingdom, but do not fear, they are more than happy to ship to the United States. The most expensive nose warmer currently listed on their site is about $8.86, so with shipping costs, you can have your very own warmer in hand for about $12.31.
We will admit that this is one very unique, and let’s say it, strange product. However, there must be a demand for it, as people are rushing to buy it. The Nose Warmer is pretty easy to use, as it stays in place by attaching the straps behind each ear. The warmers are available in a wide variety of fabrics, including fleece and faux fur, as well as solid colors and animal prints.
The nose warmers, for what they are, are highly functional. However, they lose a lot when it comes to fashionability. But, to be honest, when the snow is flying and your nose is cold, you are probably not too worried about making a fashion statement.
