Company Sells Ridiculous Garment For Cold Noses
Imagine if your mom forced you to put this on before heading out the door to catch the school bus. You'd be a lamb walking into the lions' den!
Well, we think they look insane, but maybe we're too judgmental. These things must be actually selling, because by all appearances, business at The Nose Warmer Company is going just fine.
The idea came to founder Sally Steel-Jones when she had "a genuine cold nose" one day. She made the first nose warmer for herself, and then started sharing her invention with others. Just like that, The Nose Warmer Company was born.
If you check out their website, you'll find nose warmers in a variety of styles and designs. They've got fleece, faux fur, wool, and more. You can even get them in the colors of your favorite sports team! Each nose warmer costs around $10 (£6.95-£7.45) and shipping is free in the UK and $4 (£3) everywhere else.
So they're not expensive and they come in a variety of styles, but they still look quite ridiculous to us. What's the reasoning in choosing this over a face warmer or a big fluffy scarf? Under what rare conditions is the nose the only cold part of the face? This is a one-trick pony... and an ugly one at that.
As a gag gift, we get it. As a serious purchase to enhance your cold-weather comfort, we're still lost. Help us out! Are we being too harsh on the little nose pouches? Would you ever wear one? Why or why not?
