Say what you will about wintertime — yes, it comes with cold temperatures, snowfall, and gray skies — but I am on team wintry weather these days. It’s the time of year to break out the bulky, winter-weight-hiding clothes, wrap yourself in a blanket, and start a fire... and I would probably add a glass of wine in there as well for good measure! Yes, winter has its minuses, but on the upside, it's got Christmas and whole lot of cozy (aka hygge!) time.
So 'tis the season of giving gifts to get you and your loved ones on your snuggly way. We've rounded up the coziest darn products you can give or add to your own wish list this holiday season. Comprised of luxury items (super soft throws!) and practical must-haves (a heated mug!), the underlying reason behind this list is ultimately to give the gift of pleasant comfort and intimacy. Every time your loved one lights a delicious candle or tucks themselves into their luxe flannel sheets, they'll remember just how much they love you. Shop our picks below... and we definitely won't judge if you buy a few for yourself.
It’s hard to beat this level of over-the-top comfy with the Nublado Throw. Made by Citizenry, the direct-to-consumer retailer that sources small-batch handmade products from all over the world, this blanket is made of unspun wool and comes in two sizes, throw or blanket. Ummm, I think I will take both!
Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug
Be honest, how many times do you have to reheat your coffee or tea in the morning? I average about two to three times. Reheat no more with the Ember Mug. The mug is preset to heat to 130 degrees, or you can adjust the temp through the app and it will alert you when your desired heat level has been reached. When the Ember is fully charged, it will keep your drink at that temp for about an hour, or it comes with a charging coaster that when used will keep it warm for as long as you wish!
Coastline Faux Fur Pillow
UGGs aren’t just for your feet anymore! This ultra soft faux fur pillow from the famous cozy boot brand is about as inviting as decorative pillows come. Available in an array of colors and machine washable, it's a must in a house with children or pets. UGG also makes a line of blankets that would make the perfect hand-in-hand gift!
Greenco Bamboo Foldable Serving Tray
Is there anything cozier than breakfast in bed? Nope. Whether you're surprising your partner on a special occasion or using it for yourself on a Tuesday morning, this tray will become your favorite sidekick. Made from sturdy bamboo, the legs fold for easy transport and storage.
Sugared Birch Galvanized Container Candle
Does cozy have a smell? Well, if it did, it would be this Sugared Birch candle. Part of Joanna Gaines' Hearth & Hand with Magnolia line at Target, this winter-y-smelling candle comes in a beautifully rustic galvanized container that will add to any room.
Cuddle Up Faux Fur Round Rug
You can practically feel this rug under your feet just by looking at it. This 36-inch round machine-washable faux fur rug is screaming for a spot in your house. While hues of pink and gray are available, we're definitely partial to ivory.
Diamond Knit Chenille Oversized Square Throw Pillow
Warm up your sofa with the softest oversized chenille pillow. The large diamond knit pattern is 24 inches of comfort and comes in three colorways.
Serena & Lily Alpine Flannel Sheet Set
I mean, there are comfy sheets and then there are COMFY sheets. These Alpine Flannel Sheets are ultra-soft and ultra-warm, and they come with a dandy white cotton trim for added detail.
