    1. An unreasonably cuddly throw blanket that you should only buy if you plan on hibernating underneath it until April.

    model holds up fluffy blanket

    I have this blanket and haven't moved from under it since I got it. It's silky soft on the bottom and thickly furry on top. I can't even begin to describe how perfectly snuggly this thing is.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $98.

    2. Or a more budget-friendly fleece blanket reviewers say has an equally impressive level of snuggliness.


    Promising review: "Seriously, y'all...if you're looking for a soft and unique blankie, then look no further. This item ranks high up there among my favorite Amazon purchases. The 'underside' is a more traditional blanket weave while the outer is the fantastically soft and 'hair' shag job you see in the pictures. When I'm truly chilly, I tend to flip the traditional side down to cover me up all nice and snug-like. When I want to feel like I'm being draped in a decadent blanket of the gods woven in wispy, (faux) newborn baby hair...I flip that soft sucker over and bellow a sigh of passion (too much?)." β€”Bitcoin Zeitgeist

    Get it from Amazon for $35.98+ (available in fives sizes and 18 colors).

    3. And a fuzzy pet bed so you can reclaim your favorite blanket without leaving Fido out in the cold.


    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in 15 colors).

    4. A pack of Innisfree sheet masks to have a spa day from the comfort of your own home. Nothing ruins a spa day like having to go out into the cold, IMO.

    sheet masks with photos of the ingredients on the packaging

    The scents are: aloe, acai, bamboo, broccoli, cucumber, coconut, fig, green tea, ginseng, manuka honey, lime, oatmeal, rice, rose, pomegranate, shea butter, tea tree, and tomato.

    Get 18 masks from Amazon for $28.50.

    5. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top. You need all the water you can get β€” it's cold out there!

    the drain cover

    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." β€”M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in three colors).

    6. A mug warmer to keep your tea hot, no matter how cruelly cold your home gets.

    cup on dish-shaped mug warmer

    Reviewers say it helps to top your mug with a silicone lid.

    Promising review: "I bought this to keep my tea warm. I figured I could use it on the cup, but actually decided to try it on the pot. I have a small 24 oz pot and it stays quite hot to the point where I have to let it cool a bit before I can drink it." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    7. A wonderful pillow spray with lavender, vetiver, and chamomile that could help reduce anxiety and give you a restful sleep.

    rectangle-shaped spray bottle that says deep sleep

    Get it from Amazon or Anthropologie for $29.

    8. A pair of sheepskin insole inserts to add the snuggle factor to your slippers.

    fuzzy soles in slippers

    Promising review: "Nice quality shearling insoles. I have LL Bean house moccasins which are several years old and I just place a new insole into them each year. These are very nice and make my lovely old moccasins feel like new again. I’ve been using them every day since I got them last November and so far they are holding up very well." β€”Bianca K.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 6W–14M).

    9. A gratitude journal so you can celebrate the good days and then look back on them on the bad days.


    Promising review: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, that didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, that was straightforward β€” in short, exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept, and I've only been doing it for a week, but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for and adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to." β€”silkeymilkey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.08.

    10. A super-popular foot massager with rotating nodes that will knead away all your winter-related woes.

    device with chambers for feet

    Promising review: "OMG I just got this and WOW it is wonderful. The heat is like putting on warm socks and the massage is as hard or soft as you select. And the air compression is GREAT!" β€”BL Meyer

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99, or get a foot roller for $19.75.

    11. A sleeved blanket that'll keep your blanket nice and secure, no matter how much you're waving your arms at the TV.

    blanket with sleeves

    Promising review: "I have a home office that gets colder than the rest of the house. This is perfect! Soft and comfy. The arms allow me to type away and still stay warm while my kitten Stapelton sleeps on my lap." β€”Lindsay Sculles

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in 15 colors, with or without a kangaroo pouch).

    12. A bathtub caddy so you can get set up with all the entertainment or ambience-setting items you need for an excellent five-hour bath.

    expandable bath tub caddy with room for devices

    Promising review: "I can finally take time away from the kids and spend time reading a book or on my iPad. The caddy fit perfectly in my tub β€” it's adjustable and expandable to fit most. I am not sure how we all survived without it." β€”Stacy P.

    Get it from Amazon for $47.97.

    13. A lavender sleep cream with melatonin and chamomile that's basically a ticket to sleep town.

    melatonin cream in jar

    Promising review: "I've been taking melatonin tablets for a couple of years with varied success. I bought this, used as a face cream; didn't seem to really help. A friend of mine recommended putting lavender oil on the soles of my feet, where substances are absorbed quickly into the body. It helped. So I then decided to put this cream on the bottom of my feet. Eureka! I sleep like a baby, now. Best sleep I've had in two years." β€”Almost retired

    Get it from Amazon for $12.92.

    14. A Himalayan salt lamp that'll provide just the right cozy ambience so you won't even feel bad that the sun is setting at like 4 pm.

    orange salt hunk lamp

    Promising review: "I ordered two of these lamps for my children's bedrooms and they are perfect. We love the fact that we can adjust the brightness." β€”Katrina L. Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.33.

    15. A Capri Blue Volcano candle that's commonly burned in Anthropologie stores. Now your home can smell just as nice.

    hands hold metal tin of capri blue candle

    Promising review: "Best smelling candle in the entire world. Expensive but worth it. It smells up entire bottom floor of our house, which is 1,500 square feet." β€”Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two sizes and scents).

    16. A tortilla blanket so you can pretend to be the warm filling of a winter burrito.

    17. A foaming lavender bath with pure epsom salt to soothe the body and create the most sudsy bath experience ever.

    reviewer covered from neck to toe in bubbles soaking in a deep bath

    While you're in that extra deep bath, you might as well go all out and add some bubbles.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff soooo much. I have had some rash issues on my fingers ever since I got a full body rash from Downy Unstopables (the worst product ever!!) and had to take prednisone to get rid of it. Ever since I started regularly soaking in the tub with this, I have had hardly any flareups. Something about the ingredients in this particular combination makes my skin sing. Plus, it smells amazing and provides top-notch bubbles. Worth every penny."β€”Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $4.87.

    18. A padded pillow so you can get really comfortable in the tub and settle in for the long haul.


    Promising review: "Don't let the pictures deceive you β€” this pillow is deceptively soft. I've used a lot of bath pillows over the years and this is by far my favorite. It's very robust and the suction cups are strong and don't slide around (it's best to use your fingernails to lift the suction cups off individually)." β€”Gary

    Get a two-panel pillow from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two styles).

    19. A funny or intricate coloring book to keep you distracted from your stress-inducing problems.


    Get the farting animals from Amazon for $5.99 or Bookshop for $6.99, the complex ocean designs from Amazon for $15.09 or Bookshop for $15.59.

    20. A bottle of bath drops that are basically like Tide pods for your body. It's 2021 so I will not be making a joke about eating them, but I will say that they have clary sage, jojoba, and grapeseed oil to moisturize dry skin.

    Promising review: "I have been wanting one of these blankets for quite a while, since I've heard great things about them, and so this year my husband purchased this blanket for me for Christmas! Last night I used it for the first time and had an amazing night's sleep. I've always been someone who likes sleeping with a lot of blankets on me, because of the weight of them, so this blanket is perfect for me. I like that this single blanket can replace those many blankets I used to use. Fabric is very soft and oh soo comfortable! Highly recommend." β€”A. D. Galante

    Get it from Amazon for $41.90+ (available in nine sizes and 13 colors).

    23. A waffle knit or fuzzy robe so you can take all relaxing vibes from the shower and keep them going until you have to get dressed.


    The Brooklinen robe on the left is awesome! It's comfortable and dries super quickly. I definitely recommend sizing up for extra coziness.

    Get the waffle robe from Brooklinen for $100 (available in sizes XS–XXXL and three colors) or the plush robe from Amazon for $55.95+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 18 colors).

    hand reaches for glass of wine on shelf with suction cup on side of tub

    Promising review: "I love this thing! The suction cup is hardcore and it holds all kinds of things, and it's small enough to throw in my backpack. I put my cocktail cup in it at the hotel pool and was the envy of other guests. Guess whose drink didn't get tossed out by accident...mine." β€”Flippy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    25. An incense holder and backflow incense cones that are equally relaxing to watch and smell., Amazon
