Posted by Lisa Edwards on

Baby, it’s more than cold outside! The sky is gray and the temperature is in the mid-teens. The days are short and all you want to do is snuggle with a nice cup of hot tea. Here are a few suggestions to have to get cozy, relax, destress and actually enjoy this time of year.

  1. Electric Blanket
  2. For those extra cold nights, break out the electric blanket.

  3. A Glowing Candle

  5. Stay-in Pajama Pants 
  6. The name says it all, “made-well” and Comfortable. Check out this list of the 12 best pajamas for lounging.

  7. Cozy throw Pillow 
  8. Just in case you need a reminder, before you snuggle up to your newest novel or catch up on the latest Netflix, this cozy pillow certainly fits the bill.

  9. Himalayan Salt Lamp

  10. While creating a soft glow, the Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Lamp also works as an air purifier. When lit, the lamp emits negative ions that fight against positively charged particles that cause you to feel stuffy and sluggish.

  14. Anything that could be poured out of something as lovely as this teapot will certainly be delicious. Try my favorite: white chocolate peppermint rooibos from teavana. 

  15. Bake Yummy Cookies
  16. For some, baking can be a very therapeutic way to enjoy the winter, plus your house will get extra warmth from the oven. Since January 20 is National Buttercrunch day, we think this Taste Of Home recipe is definitely something you should try!
