Yea, tell em to get a jumper or if your feeling nice for Christmas get them a big blanket/onsie. You could get them hand warmers or suggest that they buy a heater for their room?

Do you live near a B&M bargains? they've got reasonably priced thermals - have a whip round maybe everyone will chip in 1 quid to stop the whinging.

Is their room for some reason a lot colder than the rest of the house? My room in my parents house never gets any sunlight, so if often much colder than other rooms. If their room is in a different part of the house, or on a different floor, it may genuinely be much colder.
In this case, I'd suggest they get a room heater, or possibly ask the landlord to look into it.
If they're just a very cold person, they may have to suck it up- if they're complaining they are cold but sitting around in a t-shirt, then tell them they need to put a jumper on. Some people are used to super overheated houses as well, so it may just be a case of getting them to adapt.

My house was actually freezing the sitting room had no heater and the second floor (the girls kept the windows open at night ) was about as warm as an ice cube in Antartica (my room and the up stairs were luckily quite warm I had a little heater I'd bought the previous year in halls once my heater had died once in the middle of a very cold November so I took that and managed to keep my room warm but yeah tell him to put on a jumper or something. or if your in London get him down to the ski show to buy thermals and a good jacket get a free hand warmer from the stand just before you go in to the building.
