Default Covering up AC vents for the winter

Hi Guys,

I am getting a bunch of cold drafts from my ac vents, i want to cover them and i found two products googling around. They look a little cheesy so I wanted to know if you guys use anything or if there is a DIY way of capping them for winter?

I was thinking about some magnets, plexiglass or similar and making a snap on cover. Any suggestions? Thanks

Your system likely has a freash air intake, closing that may be a better idea.
