fired up

Tis the season for a cozy fire, and luckily it's now easier than ever to light it up. No need for the tried-and-true woodburning fireplace. Here are some amazing-looking models that work, yes, without logs and chimney. On the downside, that aromatic wood smell is absent, and your guy will miss the opportunity to show off his manly skills splitting wood. On the upside, no one has to get their hands dirty making the fire, and sweeping out ashes afterwards is a thing of the past. All that's left to do is snuggle up and savor the moment.
