Baby, it’s cold outside – the perfect time to warm things up! There’s nothing better than snuggling up fireside, with a soft blanket and a cup of cocoa, but there are lots of other ways to warm your heart. Not to mention, great gift ideas for friends and family (remember, they just might want their heart warmed too). Take a peek at how you can have a cozy Christmas celebration this year!
comfy at the top
The current, ever-popular Athleisure trend keeps on moving forward. And why not? The comfy, casual, on-the-go style is easy as ever to take you from the gym to the market, even to work, and a cool night out. The big deal is that comfort is key here.
What’s really fun about this trend is that the newest details make it more than just sporty-wear – it’s a bit flirty, and ALWAYS soft and comfy. And so, so easy to wear!
Like these two tops by Hannah. The super-soft lightweight sweatshirt has a bohemian attitude with floral embroidery at both shoulders, and peasant designed sleeves with wide cuffs. How can a basic grey top look and feel so perfect? It’s easy, when it’s this yummy-soft knit top accented with ruffles at mid-sleeve. Just what your jeans want to pair up with! And a most-wanted gift too!
throw on some cozy
Some gifts are just as good to get as they are to give. Think curling up in a big easy chair, reading a good book, and all wrapped up in pure softness. Like in one of our incredibly soft and plush Great Hotels Collection reversible sherpa-lined throws. Just add some popcorn, a Netflix movie and maybe your little puppy at your side. And because every room should have at least one fabulous throw blanket, you can gift away!
Other throw blanket ideas include a Merino wool striped style, a luxe heated electric design and a too-cute plaid throw and snowflake socks set. No matter how you wrap it, coziness is a gift anyone and everyone on your list will love.
cushy down to your mistle-toes
It used to be, the only really comfy shoes you could slip your feet into were your house slippers. No longer true. Nowadays, not only can you wear fun, cute, cozy and warm boots at home, you can actually go outside and wear them just about anywhere! Great patterns and colors and details make them your new best friends, and they’re perfect to wear with leggings and jeans, all winter long.
Think gifting for friends and family! Case in point, Indigo Rd. Aylee plaid boots with flannel upper and faux fur lining; Rampage Peak boots with soft faux suede upper, double back buckle detail and faux fur lining; or Skechers Bobs Keepsakes Ice Angel clogs, slip-on style with a cable knit sweater and faux fur collar trim and lining.
Step right into a slice of heaven.
So, it’s the night before Christmas and all through the house, everybody’s ready for bed in anticipation of Santa’s big arrival. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for everyone to be able to slip into soft, warm, great-looking pajamas and slippers? Make your vision (and their dreams) a reality. Give them all some cozy comfort to hang out in and sleep in BEFORE all the hoopla begins, and then enjoy all Christmas day, and beyond.
Start with yourself, in a folded pajama set by Laura Ashley. Classic and charming, the hearts and stripes design is just one in a big selection of prints. All jazzed up when you pair it with this “I Love Naps” soft slipper and mask set by Dearfoams.
For the guys, try Izod traditional plaid lounge pants with drawstring/elastic waist. Hanging out in silky fleece will never be (or feel) the same, especially with some plush fleece-lined moccasin style slippers by Weatherproof. The memory foam insoles are so comfortable, they make you feel like these were made just for you.
