Win­ter has already set in. So it’s time to pre­pare for the onset of frost. And now we are not talk­ing about fur coats and felt boots. Today we will talk about things, thanks to which not only win­ter evenings are not ter­ri­ble, but also with the help of which you can warm up. We have pre­pared a whole selec­tion of the main pur­chas­es for the win­ter and even fig­ured out what to do on cold evenings.

warming up

First you need to take care of home com­fort and warmth. If sta­tion­ary bat­ter­ies do not warm, then it is bet­ter to pur­chase an elec­tric assis­tant. Heaters not only save dur­ing an unex­pect­ed shut­down of heat­ing, but also main­tain a com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture.

Select­ing the right device is easy. With all their diver­si­ty, heaters are divid­ed into three types. Oil — a clas­sic and famil­iar device to us since child­hood. The prin­ci­ple of its oper­a­tion is based on heat­ing the oil, the heat from which is trans­ferred to the body, and then to the air. The heat­ing ele­ment of this type of device is locat­ed inside, the heater is sta­ble and turns itself off when it reach­es the set tem­per­a­ture. There­fore, it can safe­ly be called safe. The only thing is that the device con­sumes quite a lot of elec­tric­i­ty.

There are also con­vec­tors. They work on the prin­ci­ple of nat­ur­al air cir­cu­la­tion: they heat the room with the help of a stream of warm air that exits through spe­cial open­ings. The main advan­tage of such devices is that they quick­ly and even­ly heat the room and look styl­ish in the inte­ri­or. At the same time, they, like oil ones, are auto­mat­i­cal­ly turned off.

For those who do not use heaters con­stant­ly, there are fan heaters. A warm stream of air will warm the room in a few min­utes. And if you turn off the heat­ing, you get a reg­u­lar fan. How­ev­er, such a device has a draw­back — it makes noise.

When choos­ing, pay atten­tion to the main para­me­ters: the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe room, pow­er, sta­bil­i­ty and the pos­si­bil­i­ty of auto­mat­ic shut­down. You can choose the right one in the cat­a­log.

We create comfort

We fig­ured out the fea­tures of the choice of heaters, the room was heat­ed, you can go fur­ther. The key to a per­fect win­ter evening is to sit in a warm house, read your favorite book and drink deli­cious tea. We are sure that you will choose to read your­self, but we will help you with tea. A good teapot will guar­an­tee excel­lent tea drink­ing. We wrote about how to choose a suit­able ket­tle on our web­site. And if you already know which device you need, you can choose it here.

Mak­ing tea is half the bat­tle. In order not to break away from fas­ci­nat­ing read­ing, it is bet­ter to pour a warm­ing drink into a ther­mo mug. Their vari­ety today is very large, so you need to choose based not only on taste. It is best to buy ther­mal mugs that keep the tem­per­a­ture of the drink for about four hours. For home use, mugs with the most com­mon clo­sure sys­tem are suit­able. If you plan to take a ther­mal mug to work or a walk, then choose light­weight mod­els with a screw-on lid with a spe­cial lock.

We decorate the house

Every­one knows that com­fort is cre­at­ed from the lit­tle things. Win­ter is a great time to update your home tex­tiles. A new blan­ket, bed­ding, a warm blan­ket and even cur­tains will help you spend the win­ter in warmth and com­fort. And lovers of tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions will be delight­ed with the increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar elec­tric blan­kets and sheets. Heat­ed tex­tiles are a must for those who are cold and like to cov­er them­selves with a whole stack of blan­kets.

We create culinary masterpieces

With the onset of cold weath­er, I espe­cial­ly want to cre­ate and delight loved ones with fra­grant and deli­cious home­made cakes. To make the dough per­fect, it is bet­ter to choose a suit­able mix­er or blender with dif­fer­ent attach­ments, as well as var­i­ous kitchen acces­sories. We have already talked about how to choose the right blender, so we share brief tips on how not to get con­fused in all the vari­ety of mix­ers. There are sev­er­al types of mix­ers on the mar­ket today. The sim­plest is man­u­al. It is light­weight and not very pow­er­ful. Great for beat­ing eggs, bat­ter or cream. It is bud­get-friend­ly, easy to clean and does not take up much space in the kitchen.

His old­er broth­er is a stand mix­er. This is the same hand mix­er, but more pow­er­ful and with a spe­cial stand that will free your hands. It is enough to put the ingre­di­ents in the bowl and turn on the device. Dur­ing oper­a­tion, both the bowl and whisks rotate. A sta­tion­ary mix­er is a ver­sa­tile and medi­um-priced option.

For those who cook a lot and often, a plan­e­tary mix­er is suit­able. It is the most pow­er­ful of the mod­els and has a spe­cial noz­zle. As you might guess from the name, it rotates accord­ing to the prin­ci­ple of plan­e­tary rota­tion — both around its own axis and around the bowl. This fea­ture allows you to knead the ide­al qual­i­ty dough in the short­est time.

Hav­ing deter­mined the type of mix­er you need, you can study oth­er addi­tion­al char­ac­ter­is­tics. To choose the right device, you should pay atten­tion to the pow­er, size and mate­r­i­al of the bowl, noz­zles and modes.

In addi­tion to pies and cakes, you can also bake bread in win­ter. After all, the smell of warm fresh­ly baked bread with a crispy crust is anoth­er com­po­nent of com­fort. If you have not cho­sen a bread machine yet, then read our mate­r­i­al about it.

Resting at home

When the weath­er is bad out­side, you have to enter­tain your­self at home.

The first thing that comes to mind is watch­ing a movie. And right­ly so, do not miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enjoy the new prod­uct or watch your favorite movie. For film lovers, we have a sep­a­rate mate­r­i­al on how to choose a TV. For avid movie­go­ers who pre­fer to watch movies on the big screen, it’s time to move to the next lev­el and buy a home the­ater pro­jec­tor. When choos­ing, you will have to pay atten­tion to many nuances: bright­ness, col­or repro­duc­tion, con­trast, res­o­lu­tion, instal­la­tion method, con­nec­tors and var­i­ous inter­faces. For the home, it is bet­ter to buy an LCD mod­el with a bright­ness of more than 500 lumens / m2. Thanks to them, you can enjoy view­ing in both bright and dark rooms. You can also choose a mod­el from 100 to 250 lumens / m2, but then you will have to watch all the films in the dark.

An alter­na­tive to watch­ing movies can be play­ing a con­sole. At the same time, video games them­selves have long moved from the cat­e­go­ry of enter­tain­ment to an every­day assis­tant. They help not only to get close to acquain­tances, but also to find new friends, devel­op char­ac­ter and, final­ly, improve your knowl­edge of the Eng­lish lan­guage. To choose a suit­able pre­fix, read our mate­r­i­al and go to the cat­a­log.

If games are not for you, then read­ing books will bright­en up win­ter evenings. E‑books have long been a prac­ti­cal replace­ment for paper pub­li­ca­tions. They save space and also allow you to take sev­er­al books with you at once in one device. Of course, we have not for­got­ten and pre­pared the mate­r­i­al so that you do not get con­fused in the vari­ety of devices.

Getting ready for the summer

“Pre­pare the sleigh in the sum­mer and the cart in the win­ter” is a well-known proverb. That is why win­ter is the best time to start get­ting in shape. When the weath­er is bad out­side, you can play sports at home. To do this, we have a whole sec­tion with all kinds of sim­u­la­tors and oth­er fit­ness equip­ment. There are even mats for yoga and oth­er sports.

Win­ter is no rea­son to despair. We are sure that with such a list of enter­tain­ment and devices at home, it will be very good. But do not for­get that there is also a lot of inter­est­ing things wait­ing out­side the win­dow. So dress warm­ly and go for pleas­ant walks, win­ter games and adven­tures.
