As the weather turns colder, people start covering up their outdoor fire pits for the season and hunkering down indoors. However, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved fire pits! Especially if you don’t have a fireplace, indoor fire pits are a great way to bring some warmth inside (in addition to plenty of s’mores opportunities). There are plenty of options for indoor fire pits, ranging from portable fire bowls to entire tabletops. 

Most indoor fire pits burn ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, so you don’t have to deal with any pesky ash or smoke. Just make sure you’re not indulging in a cigarette when you’re filling up the fuel!

Here are some top picks to suit any home or style.
