So maybe this is a bit of an extravagance for someone who can't afford to just turn the damn heat up; I'll admit that. That said, I have a space heater that I throw pants over the night before and switch on a bit before I get out of bed, and it's an incredibly satisfying feeling. Well recommended, but make sure you're using a heater that won't set anything on fire. Propane heaters for instance (backed up too close on one of them once...it felt great. That was the warmest I ever got that day) are to be avoided.

So the idea is a heating system that fully heats one's cold clothes. A rack designed to hold ones clothes and fully heat them. Switches on 5-10 minutes before you get out of bed with a timed system, or do it yourself with a switch if you're a snooze abuser.

       There is a cheaper alternative to this, which is to put your clothes under the sheets. I've not tried this. Some say it helps iron them, but i'd think it'd make them smelly and seriously creased.   

       Incidentally, [+].

       ...or your duvet/quilt should have a large pocket for storing clothes. Then, the heat you radiate during the night would be absorbed by your clothes while you sleep.

       What about creasing though?   

       I think i might try this tonight.

       bun. But that may because I am sooo cold right now! brrrrr!

       hippo, - careful, the next logical step on that idea tree is to suggest wearing your duvet (know it's christmas) for the rest of the day, and the next thing you know, we'll have two-piece double-breasted duvet suits with a 13.5 tog matching tie. At night, simply lay it all out flat, clip or hook or attach it together to form a linear slab of high tog rating, and sleep under it.
