As the holidays are coming, it will become colder and colder. You'll need a way to stay comfy, and the best way to stay comfy indoors are the essentials you will need to stay warm and have fun while doing it. These items are super festive and they are perfect to enforce the cozy mood! Here are some key items you can have to make sure you stay comfy and cozy this winter:
1.) CHRISTMAS COOKIES
Any type of cookies are amazing, but there is something about Christmas cookies that make me smile more than usual cookies. Whether its gingerbread or sugar cookies, Christmas cookies always taste really good and I would be really comfy eating them on a cold winter night. Especially when they are warm, then they are divine! The sugary taste of it all is the finishing touch. I can't wait to make some Christmas cookies and get into the Christmas spirit! Yum!
2.) HOT COCOA
Ahhh... hot cocoa. Hot chocolate (aka hot cocoa) is the ailment and healing of the soul. :) Plus, it's super delicious! The perfect mix of chocolate and warmth, it will warm you from the inside out! I would love to settle down on my couch with a steaming mug of this amazing drink. It is really easy to make, and you can add hot chocolate's best friend—marshmallows! Marshmallows are perfect on top of hot chocolate, bringing a total mouthwatering sugar taste to the hot cocoa. The warmth of it is excellent, but sometimes it is REALLY warm and it burns your throat. Well, that's the price you pay for drinking something so delish. :)
3.) FIRE IN FIREPLACE
What is better for warming up than a toasty fire in the fireplace? I can't think of anything! Curled up in front of a blazing fire with a blanket is what I want right about now. The crackling fire is also very soothing and just listening to it is pure divinity. The fire will warm you right up, and the pretty orange/yellow/red flames are a sight to watch. Instead of occupying your time with something else, why not watch the fire? It might sound boring, but it really is fascinating (and a bit hypnotizing!). Those flames are key for warming your whole body in this chilly winter
4.) GIFTS BY THE TREE
Who doesn't like seeing gifts under a tree? Even if they aren't for you, the wrapping and the detail is still very delicate and pretty. There might not be any presents under the tree until Christmas, so this cozy factor might have to hold off until Christmas morning. But still, who says you can't look at your own wrapping? You can wrap a present you have bought for someone and leave it under the tree for a little while and just admire it. It feels good looking at a present you will give to someone else, plus looking at your wrapping job will lift your spirits even more!
5.) TV SHOWS AND MOVIES (NETFLIX!)
You will need something to do while you are living in comfort, and Netflix has the answer! Even if it isn't Netflix, watching TV shows and/or movies either on a phone, computer, tablet, or TV is a great way to have something to do. Catch up on your favorite TV series, or watch a movie you have been dying to watch, but haven't had the time. It is a great way to pass the time! Not a fan of TV or movies, or you just want something else to do? Read! Reading is very time-passing, and it is really fun to read, even a paperback! Here's the book I want to read, but never had time to:
Now I can curl up with this book!
I love pajamas. Maybe it's the name, or the comfort, or maybe both! Whatever it is, pajamas are always sooooo comfy. Fleece or flannel, onesie or two piece, pajamas are great to cuddle up in, and to read or watch TV. I'm getting comfy already! The pajamas shown are really festive and pretty, and look very snug and warm. You can wear any pair, not just these ones. Pajamas are pajamas!
I got the idea for a cozy Christmas from a set on Polyvore. Want to check it out? I really love it, and that is where I got my inspiration. Also, did you know Hanukkah started today? For those of you who celebrate, Happy Hanukkah! :)
Now for the Christmas countdown:
Almost there! A week and 2 days away! Also, Happy Hanukkah!
