Heat Holders USA Socks Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to Heat Holders USA for the socks to help post this review

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Heat Holders was developed by our talented product development team in house. The challenge was to make a sock that would be the warmest sock ever and comfortable and practical to wear in daily life. It wasn't easy, but our team came up with Heat Holders in 2008.

Since then we have sold more than 10 million pairs worldwide and our distribution continues to grow. This growth is because of our customers who are truly satisfied with Heat Holders. Whether they are at Home, at Work or at Play in the cold winter months, there is a pair of Heat Heat Holders for them, which keeps them warm, comfortable and safe. We hope to count you among our customers!

I've always had cold feet. Socks help sometimes, and slippers seem to be a hazard with me because they can be slick, so when I heard about Heat Holders I knew I wanted to try them. The thought of having cute fun socks that truly keep my feet warm seemed like a win win situation, and I was thrilled when they agreed to send me two pair for review. 

When the socks arrived, my oldest daughter wanted to try them and see why they were so special. We both were surprised at how soft they are on the inside, and then the first time I got up to walk I was blown away. My feet got warm as I walked in to my kitchen as if I was standing on mini heat pads, and while I was nervous about slipping on the floor because the fluffy inside, they act like normal socks and I've never had issues walking in them around my home. 

Thick, chunky and with a massive tog rating of 2.34, Heat Holders are made from a specially developed heavy bulk yarn which has extreme thermal qualities. With long pile cushioning, these thermal socks will help keep feet fully comfortable and supported. 

The inside of each sock has been intensively brushed that not only feels sensationally soft but also traps warm air close to the skin keeping your feet warmer for longer. When you feel the inside with your hand, it seems like a lot of material, but once on your feet they just feel like a thick sock to me. My daughter and I both wore them for hours that first day, and eventually took them off due to our feet getting hot. 

Fiber content is 91% Acrylic, 5% Nylon, 3% Polyester, 1% Elastane, and they are non-binding. They are diabetic friendly and provide relief for cold feet due to circulation problems. My father is a Diabetic and has been for several years. One of my favorite features of these socks is that they are ok for Diabetics to wear. He always has cold feet, but I know he has issues with swelling and socks digging in to him, so I think I'm going to get him a pair for Christmas so he can have something to keep his feet warm this Winter and still be comfortable. 

Heat Holders USA carries so many other things than just socks. You'll find leggings, full tights, hats, mittens, gloves, and socks for Men, Women, and Children. There's also a normal sock option like the Raspberry I reviewed, and then long socks like the Pink ones I reviewed. There's plenty of sizes to choose from in the categories, and there's also a slipper option for the socks to help with grip. The bottom reminds me of hospital socks when you're a patient and I think those would be great for my father since his whole home has wood floors. 

Prices vary for the items depending on what you're wanting to purchase, but most items are around $16. 

Shipping from North Carolina, USA purchases get free shipping when you purchase 2+ items at once, and Canada is free shipping once you hit $40+. The map above shows their average shipping time depending on your state, and they try to ship same day if your order is placed before 12noon EST. 

I really love these socks and I'm so glad I got to work with this company. I plan on purchasing in the future for the Holidays and I highly suggest thinking of doing the same. As I've gotten older, I like giving gifts people can truly use for a long time, and socks are a definite during the cold Winter months!
