Winter can be brutal. Morning commutes can be brutal. Combine these two harsh realities, and you'll contemplate closing the blinds, curling up into a ball under your warmest blanket, and not emerging again until the spring. Unfortunately, adulthood won't allow it so we thought of the next best thing - take the warmth of your favorite blanket on the road with you. These 4 electric blankets plug into your car's cigarette lighter to quickly warm you up as you wait for your windshield to de-ice. They're simple to use, easy to store and will keep you from freezing on your commute to work or on your holiday road trips.

What is it about a red plaid blanket that just screams "Warmth"? This fleece electric car blanket measuring 59” x 43” will keep you warm, no matter what ungodly number your car thermometer is showing today. The Stalwart blanket ($20) is lightweight for easy storage, but it provides serious warmth when you turn it on by plugging it into your car's cigarette lighter. Since many vehicles don't come with heated rear seats, this blanket will come to the rescue. Its long cord means it will reach any row in your vehicle to keep your rear-seat passengers from freezing. When it's not in use, just fold it up and stash it in your car's trunk or back seat.
