this time of year, i always wish i could have a fireplace in my bedroom. it would be nice to have that flicker (though i have this app and stream to my apple tv, which is nice…though it looks like i have a fireplace sitting on top of my dresser), and of course, the warmth. enter personal fire places, portable fireplaces, electric and gel fuled fireplaces.
some of these options can be expensive, some can be reasonably priced. here are my favorites plus an easy DIY project if you need something to do this weekend.
3. an almost real fireplace (i kind of really want this one!), $250
5. an indoor/outdoor firepit – my favorite! $120
and here is your bonus! you can make your very own firepit to keep cozy this winter and be all proud of yourself, and get that satisfaction of having built something yourself and not spending much money:
