    1. A reversible shag and sherpa throw blanket that you will never want to take off of your body.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought the grey fur blanket and, HOLY SMOKES, this is the most comfortable blanket I think I’ve ever bought. It was meant to be decor and not really used, but I can’t keep it off of me, it’s so soft. I was very surprised by how good of quality it seems, especially for the price. Big enough to cover two people up easily. I’d compare the feeling of the faux fur to something like bunny’s fur, and the sherpa is very soft as well. It has some decent weight to it and I’ve found it to be very warm so far. All in all, good for the money." —Kaylee Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in four sizes and 40 colors).

    2. A faux sheepskin area rug so that the first thing your bare feet feel in the morning isn't the cold, unforgiving floor.

    Promising review: "I loooooove it! It’s such a nice material. It looks more expensive that what it actually is. It looks great in my living room." —Silvia Gallegos

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    3. Some LED string lights – they're a simple way to make a big change in your space. These ones allow you to choose between eight modes so you can set them to twinkle, fade, remain steady, and more depending on your mood!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these lights. I bought them for my dorm in college because bad lighting puts me in a weird mood. These lights are beautiful and made the room feel warm, cozy, and homey. They also helped with 'winter blues' that I always get because I live in Michigan and the winter weather is always cold and gloomy, so having nice lighting helped a lot. I received tons of compliments on them every time someone came into my room. I love these lights so much that I bought another set to hang in my room at home. Just buy these beautiful lights!" —Madelynn K.

    Get them from Amazon for $15.29.

    4. A hammock chair so you can curl up, cancel your plans, and read that book you've been meaning to get to.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a swing, this is the one. What a cool fun hanging chair to have in my living room. It was easy to install and completely safe for an adult to sit in. My dog likes joining me on my lap also. Highly recommended." —BO B.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    5. A shag rug that'll be a game-changer for anyone with cold toes and hardwood floors.

    Amazon

    This rug comes in a variety of colors and sizes!

    Promising review: "I can't believe how incredibly soft and cozy this rug is! And considering the price too, how big it is. I bought this to go under my daughter's loft bed to make a little reading nook for her. But after it arrived, now we're ordering one for the living room and my oldest daughter's room too. Well worth it! Very happy with this purchase!" —Kristin

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+.

    6. Some super soft (but not super expensive!) throw pillow cases so that your pillows are at peak fuzziness when you need them most. Snuggling recommended!

    Amazon

    Pillows not included, FYI.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant this would be good quality due to the low price but I am thoroughly happy with my purchase. The pillowcase is even softer than I imagined! I just wish it was also offered in bigger sizes because I would definitely buy more!" —sara

    Get it from Amazon for $15.49 (set of two) and try pairing with this matching set of two pillow inserts from Amazon for $13.99.

    7. Some chair socks that look like... wait for it... LITTLE. CAT. FEET. These are such a fun way to keep your floors scratch-free while making your chairs look truly a~meow~zing!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE these!!! Not only are they cute and adorable, but also very functional. I bought these because of my frustration with other products I've tried that left marks on my hardwood floors. My chair legs are thick and I was worried they might not fit, but they stretched nicely and did not slip or slide off. I have tried several other options from rubber tips to felt pads and all of them fall or slide off after a while. We use our chairs every day, multiple times a day and they have not worn out. They very obviously prevent scratches. They look like the chairs have gotten socks to keep their legs warm with these cat paws. Excellent design and manufacture with a nice dose of whimsy. I will definitely buy more of these just to have as back up." —Zhangsu

    Get a variety set of 20 from Amazon for $12.59.

    8. An electric fireplace to take your space to the height of cozy luxury. No complicated hookups or vents required! Just plug it in, close your eyes, and pretend you're back at the lodge after a long day of skiing.

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99.

    9. Some Jessica Simpson faux fur slippers that will make you feel like you're walking on a fluffy cloud.

    Amazon

    Featuring an anti-slip synthetic sole, thick memory foam cushion for extra support and comfort, and warm, plush faux fur for peak coziness! Plus, they come in a variety of cute colors!

    Promising review: "I read the reviews and decided to order these. Other reviews said they were very comfy and fuzzy, but ordering online is so hit or miss. I found that the other reviews were not exaggerating! When I slipped them on my feet they were SO soft and fuzzy I might have moaned just a little bit. So comfy. Definitely recommend." —Mama Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 - $25.86.

    10. Some Crocs slippers lined with faux fur to keep your feet comfy and toasty. TBH, I'd probably buy one pair for at home and one to wear out.

    Amazon

    Choose from a variety of colors!

    Promising review: "Better than Uggs! I’m really obsessed with these. I’ve just gotten into Crocs and now I can’t stop. The classic Crocs run big, but these are spot on. These are different than the classic Crocs because of the lining and the holes. There are holes on the top, but the lining covers them on the inside. The lining isn’t attached to the top of the shoe, so it’s breathable. This makes it an awesome shoe for slippers or even to go outside. I love that the trim shows a bit on the outside of the shoe. It does make them more slipper-looking than the classic clog, but I’d still wear them in public. I actually think they look more stylish than the regular Crocs. Comfort-wise they’re just as great as the regular Crocs. I wish it had a more of arch support, but it’s not bad enough to reduce a star. I have four pairs of Uggs and I would hands down wear these Crocs over any of my Uggs. I also love that these are the types of shoes that would last for years to come. I highly recommend these Crocs. I will be buying more in the future. The maroon color is so rich and beautiful." —FamilyofLove

    Get it from Amazon for $25.58 - $110.93.

    11. A giant hoodie blanket because what other three words combine to make something so perfect? If you aren't already sold, this slice of cozy heaven has been featured on Shark Tank and is loved by both humans and pets.

    Amazon, Via amazon.com

    There's also a giant pocket in the front to keep your hands (or paws, or... snacks) warm!

    Promising review: "Have you ever been all warm and cozy under a blanket then have to get up for something and it's horrifically cold outside of the blanket? That doesn't happen because you're literally wearing the blanket! Bought this as a gift and that was the response I got after asking how they liked it." —Amznshpr123

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 10 colors).

    12. A memory foam mattress topper infused with lavender that will make your bed so comfortable, you'll never want to leave.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So. Let me start off by saying, this thing is like a beautiful, lavender scented dream. Just moved into a new place and my boyfriend brought his mattress, which was comparable to sleeping on a plank of wood, on a cement porch, that was built on a rock. I scoured Amazon trying to find an affordable, yet highly rated topper so that my back and hips stopped feeling like I was 110 years old when I woke up. Upon opening, the lavender scent was strong but not oppressive like others noted, and it quickly dissipated as the hours went by. I let the topper fluff up for a solid 24 hours before sleeping on it. The first night that I climbed into bed, I immediately felt the difference. I am a side sleeper, and I felt like my spine was more aligned. The curve of my natural waist felt supported, like I was being cradled by a soothing marshmallow. I’ve been sleeping on this magical topper for a month now and I look forward to crawling into bed every night because of it. Buy it. Now. You will be happy you did. " —LLCoolD

    Get it from Amazon for $36.62+ (available in seven sizes and two styles).

    13. A corner gallery wall – a great way to display your favorite pieces without cluttering an entire wall. Learn how to make your own at A Pair and a Spare.

    But first, grab a set of seven differently-sized frames from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three finishes).

    14. A lamp to replace harsh overhead lighting with some soft ambience. This piece, made from wood and willow, is perfect for bringing an earthy vibe to your decor.

    Jungalow is a Black-owned business that prioritizes sustainability, using natural, recycled, recyclable, and compostable materials wherever possible. They also have a cool program where they plant at least two trees for every single order!

    Get it from Jungalow for $189.

    15. A hanging canopy for your bed because, let's face it, we've all been jealous of someone in a movie who has one. Plus, this one is covered in glow in the dark stars to make things even dreamier.

    Amazon

    Did I mention the mesh is small enough to keep mosquitos from treating you like a midnight snack! Let's just say, if mosquitos could leave Amazon reviews, they'd give this one zero stars out of five.

    Promising review: "Hung it in minutes using the included screw and drywall anchor. Ready out of the box. Takes no time at all to “charge” the stars with only the help of the light on the ceiling fan. Glows until my daughter falls asleep. Soft material; not a stiff toulle. Nice length, touches the floor and drapes beautifully. I am so happy with this purchase and my 8-year-old adores it. She looks like a princess lying beneath it. So fun! It’s a delicate fabric. If your kids are prone to bed wrestling or rowdy play, it’ll easily get torn or snatched down. But if cared for, this should last a long time." —RayfordsDaughter

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    16. A dedicated canopy bed in case you want to take this canopy thing to the next level — and who wouldn't?? Look how cozy it is once you add some lights and curtains!

    Wayfair, anrdoezrs.net

    Promising review: "I was able to assemble almost all of it by myself. I love the cozy space it creates within my room. I keep lights strung up but will be playing with fabric soon too. I’ve had it up for over three months now and I haven’t had any issues with the quality of the materials or construction. It has a good amount of space for storage under the bed without being too high off the ground." —Laura

    Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $108.99.

    17. An ultra-soft comforter set that will make you fall in love with sleep all over again.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Finally a cozy, soft, plush comforter at a reasonable price! We bought the oversized king and it fits beautifully on our king bed. All the other king size comforters were not long enough width-wise. My husband and I were constantly playing tug-of-war with blankets, but not this blanket. Highly recommend the oversized king for anyone with a king mattress. Seams and threading seem to be fine and the filling is evenly distributed." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    18. A terracotta candle holder filled with natural beeswax candles to add some warm colors to your space. Plus, what's cozier than a candlelit dinner on a chilly autumn evening?

    Get it from Fredericks & Mae for $25+.

    19. Or try a set of flameless candles if you're nervous about falling asleep with candles still burning. These include a remote control timer and are dimmable!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "First of all, let me say that I own a lot of battery-operated flameless candles with timers. They must have a timer or I won't buy them. I cannot afford Luminara, but I do have one I bought on clearance and I love it. I bought these because I needed a candle to put in an outside lantern that wouldn't melt and would operate on a timer. These candles fill the bill and more. I was actually amazed at how realistic they are. The flame moves and dances just like a real candle. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. I hope they last a long time." —Drochner

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in white and ivory).

    20. A fuzzy throw blanket that is so cozy, it has over 4,300 5-star Amazon reviews. This dog didn't personally leave a review, but based on how snuggled it looks, I'm willing to bet that it would've been 5 stars.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This blanket is machine-washable, luxurious, and hypoallergenic. Available in a variety of sizes and colors!

    Promising review: "This blanket goes above and beyond the average blanket. If you've ever dreamed of sleeping in the pelts of 50 rabbits but don't want the guilt of all those rabbit lives, this is your blanket. It's light but warm, not too warm, just warm enough. The cats LOOKED at it and ran to the bed. Before I finished laying it out they started climbing on it like OKAY guys calm down! And it's huge so you can really bundle yourself up or add an extra person comfortably. This blanket just seems sexy and luxurious. I don't really know. It's magical, and it's changed my quality of life for the better." —Emma Stanley

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four sizes and 20 colors).

    21. A weighted blanket — another great option that makes you feel like you're wrapped up in a big cozy hug. Some say that these can even reduce anxiety, stress, and insomnia.

    Amazon

    This one's available in 10 different sizes and weights and a variety of colors!

    Promising review: "This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I have been an insomniac for years and have never successfully been treated. Even with many doctors appointments and medications — NOTHING worked! On top of that I have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I thought I would give this blanket a try. This product is not advertised for RLS but it absolutely should be! I have had my blanket for three days and I have been basically sleeping in a coma-like state!!! Its is the soundest and best sleep I have ever had in my life. And the comforting weight on my legs and boy just eases those RLS symptoms and drifts me off to a sound sleep!!! It is so hard to describe the feeling of peace and comfort the minute you lay it on your body. I actually ordered the 15-pound blanket for my weight and height because I wanted the extra weight just in case. I decided to go ahead an order a second one if I have an emergency situation and need even more weight on my legs... This product is phenomenal to say the least!!!" —DeAnn Barksdale

    Get it from Amazon for $48.90+.

    22. A rotating projector that turns your once-boring ceiling into an aurora borealis light show. Plus, it includes a built-in speaker and audio cable so you can hook up your phone and add some sounds or music to the experience!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! It's very subdued with the cover on. If you take the cover off, woah! It's like a full-on professional laser light show. My wife and I laid in bed listening to music and watching the show until we fell asleep. I slept better than I have in a long time, probably because I was so relaxed when I went to sleep. Great for adults, and probably kids too." —SpaceManSpiff

    Get it from Amazon for $23.96.

    23. A faux forest view window to help cheer up windowless spaces. This easy-to-install decal will transport you to the California redwoods no matter where you are!

    CatsMeowArt

    Its fabric-like material conforms itself to wall imperfections for a bubble and glare-free look. Plus, it won't leave any obnoxious sticky residue behind if you want to peel it off and move it somewhere else at some point.

    NOTE: Applying this decal to painted walls, wallpaper, windows, glass, etc. is a breeze, but it's NOT recommended to use on brick, rough concrete, or unfinished wood.

    Get it from CatsMeowArt on Etsy for $29.50+ (available in three sizes).

    24. A half-circle fringe mirror so that even your reflection is wrapped in a cozy blanket! This piece adds a touch of warm boho charm, while the mirror can help smaller spaces feel a little bit bigger.

    25. A sound machine night-light that reviewers say isn't just for kids. Choose from a range of custom colors and sounds – all controllable from your phone! You can also set a time-to-rise alert that can be much more soothing than anxiety-inducing phone alarms.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with Hatch. I love the feature that allows you to turn the machine off at a certain time. I use it as an alarm of sorts. The nice, peaceful noise blocking turns off at a certain time and helps my daughter wake up. It worked so well in helping my daughter get up for school that I knew I needed one. The sound setting that has the TV picture is also the perfect pitch to block out everything without having to be super loud. I also love that I can turn the white light on to the brightest setting if I’m not quite ready to go to bed, but my husband is asleep. It helps light up the room well enough that I can see everything but it doesn’t disturb him. There just isn’t anything I don’t like about the Hatch. It is marketed as a baby gadget, but it’s perfect for every age. It also looks awesome my nightstand and doesn’t take up much room since it is a vertical machine. Bravo, Hatch!" —Rachel M.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    26. A distressed Persian area rug – a great way to add some lived in, homey charm to your space.

    Rugs USA

    Reviewers note that these rugs are even more vibrantly colored in person!

    Promising review: "I purchased this rug in the Dark Blue color. I loved the first so much (8x10), I had to get a smaller one (5x8) for my entryway. The vintage look is perfect for my farmhouse decor and the color is magnificent against my wood floors. It is very soft, much more plush that I ever imagined, especially for the price. I love it so much I plan to purchase the runners to match for my upstairs hallways." —Michael K.

    Get it from Rugs USA for $27.30 - $532.20 (available in nine colors, five shapes, and 12 sizes).

    27. A custom mug so that your hot beverages (a cozy ESSENTIAL) display photos and memories that make you feel extra warm and fuzzy.

    Shutterfly

    Reviewers love how easy it is to make your own mug design and how sharp and vibrant the pictures come out on the mug itself! Plus, they're dishwasher- and microwave-safe!

    Promising review: "My first Shutterfly mug was a gift, made by my niece with pictures of her son. I have enjoyed it so much I started making mugs as gifts for people and for myself. Each mug has been lovely. The process is easy and pleasant, and the result is always a mug to treasure. I have also made many, many other items through Shutterfly and all have been of excellent quality." —Decorator 33

    Get it from Shutterfly for $8.50.
