Aside from snow, the best part about winter is that it's socially acceptable to never leave your house.

To get in the spirit of the season, I'm celebrating by sharing my favorite ways to transform your bedroom into a cozy cuddle-only zone.

1. A set of heavy flannel sheets that will make you late every morning because you simply won't want to leave your bed.

I would argue that there are few things as satisfying as climbing under the covers to lay on top of fresh sheets. These flannel sheets take that experience and make it 10x better. The velvet flannel provides a luxurious feel you'll never want to leave.Promising review: "Oh. My. Heavens. We had considered flannel sheets for years, and we even bought a set once, but had to return them because they didn't fit our deep pocketed mattress and just gave up. We only want them when it's cold out, not all year long. So, the years passed and we had COLD sheets. This set was a game changer!! They truly do have deep pockets and fit our queen bed very well. They washed nicely and are thicker than expected. Getting into bed at night with these sheets feels SOOOOOO warm compared to our other sheets!! Love these." —recycle-itGet it from Amazon for $51.71+ (available in Queen, King, and California King).

2. A white noise sound machine to soothe you to sleep each evening.

There are two kinds of people in this world: those that can fall asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillow, and the rest of us. If you're in the latter, you should give this white noise sound machine a shot! It has two speed settings so you can customize exactly how much sound comes out. Over 9,500 Amazon customers have given this machine a 5-star review — I'm sold.Promising review: "Picture this: you're walking down a creepy forest where everything and everyone, mainly all the wildlife, is making their normal loud noises. The environment is not inviting to take a nap there, but then angels appear and say, 'we will sing for you now.' They proceed to sing, and their song is in synchronized humming and the next thing you know you're out!! Freakin' angels! What have you done to me?! I fall asleep like a baby!" —David HernandezGet it from Amazon for $44.95 (available in five colors).

3. A pair of fleece pajamas that have POCKETS. Need I say more?

amazon.com, amazon.com

Sign me up for anything that has pockets. Made of 100% polyester, these PJs come with a drawstring waistband and will keep you comfortable. You can easily lay in bed for hours in these bad boys, not to mention all the fun patterns they come in! Excuse me while I add the taco-print to my cart. Note: customers say they run small, so order a size up.

Promising review: "I got the Night Owl pair of these for Christmas, promptly put them on and didn't take them off for the next two days. These are quite probably the softest, most cuddly thing I have ever worn in my entire life. They are so unbelievably warm and soft and have just enough stretch to follow your movements without being restricting. I loved them so much that I bought another pair on my own, the Sweet Heart. They, too, are so very comfortable that I may never leave the house again." —jayamama

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXXL and in 30 prints).

4. A $40 humidifier to change the way you sleep for the better.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Raise your hand if you're tired of feeling like you wake up in the Sahara Desert each morning. Great. Well, I've got the solution: the Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Must Humidifier. It uses cool mist which is said to help you breathe more easily and get a more restful sleep. This version is great for both adults, kids, AND, apparently, cats.

Promising review: "Perfect for the summer — the mist has a cooling effect. My 2-year-old son loves the blue-light effect and I don't need to worry about him burning his hand like with hot humidifiers. It's about 10 inches tall and 6 inches wide. It is built very light but sturdy and in great condition. I purchased two: one for me and another for my son's room. Living in the dry desert area, this is perfect for my family. Good for small rooms, but if your room is big like a master bedroom I would purchase either two or a larger one. The placement also seems like it requires it to be near you like on the nightstand next to the user. I love it!!" —shyeilrz

5. A temperature regulating comforter that will help you sleep through the night without the annoyance of overheating or being too cold.

Is this comforter weaved out of wishes and dreams? Just maybe. I'm a very hot sleeper and am constantly kicking off the covers during the night. This comforter is made of hygro cotton which wicks way moisture and keeps your body at the perfect temperature — it's magical AF.Promising review: "I was initially skeptical because of the light weight of this comforter, but pleasantly surprised at its ability to keep us perfectly warm on cold nights and cool on warmer nights. It’s not thick, but still fills our duvet cover nicely and stays in place with the corner fabric loops." —CLSedonaGet it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $121.99 (originally $175, available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes).

7. A curtain of twinkle lights that will make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?

amazon.com, amazon.com

If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —Nechama G.

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

8. A memory foam chair that is so comfortable, your friends will happily join you in your winter hibernation.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This seat is essentially a bean bag chair that doesn't have beans — it is made with durable foam stuffing and is encased in velvety suede. The chair is lightweight so you can move it from room to room as needed. It also seems to be a big hit with pets. :)

Promising review: "At first it looked way too small, but if you fluff it up (or kick the crap out of it) the foam pieces inside will break up and expand to fill out the bag. It is comfy to sit in, supports the weight of an adult, doesn't make a lot of noise (it is foam, not Styrofoam), and doesn't get hot (fabric breaths nicely, it isn't like old plastic/vinyl ones from decades ago). I'm going to get another one or two for the living room." —M Chateau

Get it from Amazon for $80 (available in 15 colors).

9. A cozy cable knit throw pillow, because you can never have enough pillows on your bed.

Can't you just picture hugging this pillow close to your chest while binge-watching The Office all winter? This sherpa pillow is super soft and a must-have for your bed. You can also pick up a matching blanket to complete the look!Get it from Amazon for $25.85 (available in six colors).

10. A cozy blanket over 3,000 Amazon reviewers are obsessed with. If you're not snuggling with this blanket this winter, I'm judging you.

amazon.com, amazon.com

LOOK AT THAT SNUGGLY PUPPY! What more could you want out of a blanket? This one is machine washable, luxurious, and hypoallergenic. The only issue you may have is one of your friends (or pets) trying to steal it out from under you while you're trying to partake in a long winter's nap.

Promising review: "Un-freaking-believable! My family fights over this blanket. It's like being wrapped in a silky, feathery, warm cloud! It's even soft on both sides. I've been told to buy more so my family will stop fighting. It's simply like chicken noodle soup for your body." —Melinda Deas

Get it from Amazon for $29.49+ (available in four sizes and 21 colors).

11. An Amazon Fire Stick so whether you want to watch Harry Potter or every season of Seinfeld, you won't have to leave your room.

I think nearly every member of my family now has an Amazon Fire TV Stick. My sisters were fighting over one for a while until one caved and finally bought her own — that's how much we love this product. Movie marathons will never be the same after buying this little gadget, you can truly watch anything your heart desires. See ya, social life.Promising review: "We have cut the cord and are streaming all content on the Firestick. We have so much to watch! We have access to Amazon Prime videos, Amazon channels that we love, Acorn TV, Masterpiece, Brit Box, Netflix, and Hulu with live TV. This change over has been very easy and we are saving $80/month by dropping cable and using the streaming content apps." —walesgirlGet it from Amazon for $39.99.

12. A luxurious silk pillowcase that will make you feel like you're staying in a fancy hotel rather than your tiny apartment.

Silk pillowcases are said to reduce creases in your skin and prevent breakage and tangling in your hair — which is why I sleep on one every night. I also just love just pretending I'm Duchess Kate Middleton or the Queen of England with my fancy freakin' pillow. This one has over 3,400 5-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's the real deal.Promising review: "After doing some research I found that silk pillowcases could help with frizzy hair. I could not be happier that I bought these because now I can wake up without looking like Mufasa had a bad blow out. Not to mention they are incredibly soft and smooth and I love putting my face on it. Also my boyfriend has noticed a significant decrease in his acne since using this pillow case. I couple this pillow case with a miracle bamboo pillow and it is truly heaven, it has become impossible to get out of bed." —KhalyseeGet it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in five sizes and 31 colors).

13. An electric fireplace to create the ultimate cozy experience right inside your very own bedroom.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Is there anything more cozy than relaxing in front of a fireplace? Definitely not. Transform your bedroom into a makeshift ski lodge by bringing in this electric fireplace that actually generates heat. This is going on my wish list right nowwww.

Promising review: "Wow! For an electric fireplace, this thing is pretty slick. I have done a ton of research because I am really picky about the flame looking as realistic as possible. The appearance of the flames comes from a projection that reflects off of whatever surface is behind the unit. The flames are adjustable mechanically, but can further be adjusted to your liking by moving the unit closer to or farther away from the reflective surface behind it. I feel like this flame is fairly realistic, especially as compared to most other electric fireplaces on the market." —dguzi

14. A chunky knit blanket that will make you feel like you're being hugged by the last scarf you received from your grandma.

This blanket is made with a sheep wool blend that's said to not itch or irritate your skin. I can already close my eyes and picture reading a book under it for hours.Get it from Amazon for $25.88+ (available in 13 sizes and 11 sizes).

15. A set of blackout curtains, because the light of day is over-rated.

amazon.com, amazon.com

I don't think my sister knows how to survive without blackout curtains — she swears by them. Hang up a set of these bad boys and you'll learn to sleep until noon all winter long. These curtains are made with an energy smart fabric that balances room temperature by insulating against summer heat and winter chills. Amazing!

Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for. I have 41" x 41" windows and I used two panels on each one. Stunning color — I ordered teal for my coral-and-teal color-schemed bedroom. They block out sunlight very well. I'm so happy! Quick shipping and they came undamaged. Good quality, thick and soft too. Almost feels like velvet." —Sarah

Winter = snuggling. If you're going to be spending a few months hanging out in bed, it should look good! This headboard and footboard create an elegant aesthetic that just seems very welcoming.Promising review: "I love this headboard. There is foam in it so it is comfortable yet firm to lean on when sitting up. It's not overly plush, I still like to have pillows between me and the headboard when sitting up, but it is comfortable to lean on. I did not use a box spring, just a mattress." —JamieGet it from Amazon for $165+ (available in four sizes and five colors).

I NEED one of these throw blankets. This faux fur one is plush and reversible (the other side is a soft fleece) and I just want to bury my face in it. After you get one for yourself, you should buy one for your friend that's always cold, too.Promising review: "We couldn't be happier with this purchase. It is the softest and prettiest looking blanket we now own! The quality of the blanket is fantastic. It is lightweight enough to use all year round but still keep you warm. It's so soft on both sides and hasn't shed at all which we have found others to do. If you want a super soft and stylish throw blanket, this is the perfect one!" — Lindsay ThornburgGet it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).
