    29 Cozy Things That Are Basically Like A Warm Hug

    It's officially ~cozy szn.~

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A wearable blanket for those who are all too familiar with the struggle of trying to type up important work, read a book, or most importantly, hold their doggo, all while staying nice and cozy in a blanket.,

    Promising review: "I work in an office that is ALWAYS freezing. My coworkers and I are constantly under heated blankets or bundled in jackets. The primary issue with a blanket was that it made it difficult to type, so I decided to put all shame aside and look into a snuggie. For the price, this is definitely the one to get! Why get a cheap-o fleece one when you can get one that feels plush and very warm? The blue color is great and I've gotten a lot of compliments about how I look like the regal queen of the office with the fuzzy cuffs. My coworkers liked it so much that many of them ordered the exact same one for themselves! I honestly really love this thing and will probably end up buying more." —borderrat906

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in nine colors).

    2. A pair of earmuff headphones to make your ears feel super soft and warm, while allowing you to listen to your favorite tunes.

    Promising review: "With the impending winter months in New York, my mom wanted some warm accessories. I gave these to her last night and she loved them! The material on the outside is super soft — it's like a super slick, furry texture. The earmuffs have a circular wire around the cups on both sides of your head, which grips around your ears, but doesn't put pressure on your ears themselves. Positioned correctly, you can fit your whole ear and some moderately sized earrings in one cup. My mom is excited about wearing these, rather than her wireless headphones on her commute to work each day!" —Emily

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    3. A gel-infused memory foam mattress topper that'll have you checking your company's work from home policy, because there's no way in heck you're ever getting out of bed and going to work after this purchase.


    Promising review: "This made a big difference minimizing the pressure points of my too-firm mattress and made it actually comfortable. It saved me from having to return the mattress altogether!" —Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two styles, and seven sizes).

    4. A faux fur saucer chair for curling up with a good read, a hot drink, and not budging until some "important responsibility" forces you to get up.


    Promising review: "It's a super cozy chair for adults, as well as kids and/or up to medium-sized dogs. The faux fur is beautiful, shiny, extremely soft and doesn't have any smell. The fur does attract dog hair, and as mine is black and my dogs are beige, you can imagine how it looks like. But I don't mind at all since I can easily clean it up with a sticky roller in a few seconds. I love this chair and I definitely have to buy a pink one for myself." —Mariann

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97 (available in 10 colors).

    5. A plush bathrobe to leave you asking important questions, like "is it socially acceptable to wear a bathrobe in public?",

    Promising review: "This robe is sooo very comfortable!! I just got it like 20 minutes ago — it’s a cool and rainy day outside, I have the windows open so it’s nice and cool in the house, and the robe is keeping me so snuggly and warm. It looks and feels just like I thought it would!" —jazmine

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in various styles, and sizes XS—XL).

    6. A shaggy throw blanket that'll make you feel like you're the filling of a delicious, warm burrito, and this throw is the toasty tortilla keeping you safe and protected.


    Promising review: "This blanket is so soft that I'll be switching from red to white wine so if I spill on it, I won't ruin my new favorite thing to cuddle with." —Kt

    And because we don't think you should have to sacrifice drinking your favorite glass of red in lieu of cuddling up to a fuzzy blanket, be prepared for a spill with this red wine stain remover — it's basically like an eraser... for red wine.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.98+ (available in 20 colors, and five sizes).

    7. A fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors for treating yourself to what might just be the best tea your taste buds have ever come in contact with.


    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my mom and she loves it! She said it’s her favorite black tea, but couldn’t find it anywhere in store — so thank you, Amazon! This is a really wonderful gift for black tea lovers." —Lolo

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $8.25.

    8. Fleece animal slippers that are equal parts adorable and soft to keep your feetsies feeling extra happy!


    Promising review: "These are different since they cup your foot like a shoe, so I can even put insoles in them. Cute and comfortable. Great alternative to slippers that have no support and make your heels stick out." —TruthMatters

    Get them from Amazon for $6.06+ (available in 21 styles, and sizes 5-6—8-9).

    9. A fluffy comforter you're going to want to fall into the second you arrive home each day. That is, if you even make it out of bed in the morning after buying this.


    Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this comforter! It is beautiful in color, as well as super soft and cozy! The price made it super affordable for anyone wanting a great piece of inexpensive bedding. I am so happy with this that I purchased a second one for my daughter, and I am considering a third one. Just love it!!" —Dedewi

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90+ (available in three colors, and four sizes).

    10. An oversized chenille sweater that'll basically make you feel like you're wearing a blanket. I own a sweater like this and I practically LIVE in it during the cold, winter months. Heck, I love it so much, I would wear it in the summer if I could., Amazon

    Promising review: "You are never going to take this off. You know those amazing blankets that are beyond soft and you never want to get out from under? Well they pretty much made a sweater out of it, and it’s amazing!!" —C. White

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in six colors, and sizes S—XL).

    11. A book filled with cozy homemade inspiration like fun crafts and delicious recipes that'll keep you busy when cold weather is keeping you trapped inside.


    Promising review: "I have to say, I'm a sucker for 'lifestyle' books, but because of how inaccessible the 'lifestyle' they're showing tends to be, they usually end up collecting dust on my coffee table. THIS BOOK is so different. Not only are the photos, crafts, and ideas beautifully shot, the author is one of the most honest, articulate, and REAL people I've ever encountered in this kind of book. She lays out easy-to-follow recipes with helpful hints about where to locate each ingredient or item — it's like your best friend telling you how to make a delicious lemon doughnut or make a DIY candle (that actually looks cute and not DIY-like). I bought several of these books to give out as gifts this year, and I'll probably end up buying even more." —Amazon User

    Get it from Amazon for $9.01/Kindle, or $12.80/hardcover.

    12. A pair of USB-powered slippers, like s'mores or narwhals to keep your feet nice and toasty. Get it? Toasty? Because s'mores are toasty? Yeah.


    Promising review (for the narwhal slippers): "I LOVE THESE SLIPPERS. I have feet that are constantly cold. These slippers heat up quickly, and keep me nice and warm. I also like how cute they are. I have worn them for well over a month, and they work just as well as the first day. I wear a size 7, and these slippers are roomy, but still hug my feet. I believe they would fit people with larger feet as well!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon: the s'mores slippers for $39.99, and the narwhal slippers for $37.95/wired or $42.95/wireless.

    13. A warming eye pillow for treating yourself and your tired eyes to some peace and relaxation from the comfort of home.


    To heat, just pop it into the microwave! This can be used multiple times!

    Promising review: "I can't sleep without it! I use to have trouble sleeping at night and due to getting few hours of sleep, I also have dark circles under my eyes. The heat helps me feel relaxed and sleepy. The sweet smell of the beans is a plus too." —Patricia Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    14. A faux fur scarf that may have the power to make those who hate winter with a burning passion actually kinda... love it. This is so soft and cuddly that parting ways with it in the spring is gonna feel like a cruel punishment.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $98 (available in two colors).

    15. A essential oil spray for some soothing, calming relief from the stresses that are our daily responsibilities. I own this in the lavender scent (review below), and truly swear by it!


    So, part of my bedtime routine lately has been adding a few drops of lavender essential oil to my aromatherapy diffuser. Lavender is such a calming scent, and after spending three to fours total a day commuting to and from New York City, I find it really relaxing to unwind with the scent of lavender in my bedroom. I just came back from a trip overseas and was fortunate enough to receive this spray for free in a PR package before I left for my trip. As much as I'd love to be able to pack my diffuser and essential oil, a girl's gotta save room in her suitcase for outfit options and souvenirs to bring back, so I opted to bring this spray instead, and let me tell you, it was truly WONDERFUL! I gave a spritz to the pillow and two spritzes to the covers before bed each night, and was able to unwind with lavender while on my trip! This is definitely something I'm going to pack for future trips, and is honestly just a great alternative for anyone who doesn't want to buy a whole diffuser and oils, but still wants the scent and the calming factor they provide!

    Promising review: "This is hands down the best linen spray I've ever used. I spray it on my pillows and sheets every night, and on my rugs and curtains when my house needs a little pick me up. This really is an amazing product: a beautiful company, owned and run by women." —Lass

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    16. A mug warmer so you can ensure your hot, relaxing beverage stays just that — hot and relaxing. Just because you don't want to sip it right away, doesn't mean you should have to suffer drinking it COLD.


    This features an on/off switch with a neon light indicator! The non-stick heating element can be easily wiped clean!

    Promising review: "I've been using this at work for the past two and a half years and it's on pretty much all day. I put a mug filled with room temperature water and it gets warm; if I leave it long enough, it even gets hot enough to make tea. I also put my cold lunch on it one hour before lunchtime, and it'll get warm enough by lunchtime." —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    17. An open-front sweater that is basically like wearing what a warm hug feels like — minus the human contact and spread of germs.

    Old Navy

    Funny enough, I am wearing this cardigan as I write this. (No really, I am.) I got this in-store at Old Navy and made a point to try it on first, because from the outside, it looked like the material would be too thin or too itchy. When I tell you that this is the most comfortable cardigan I own, I'm not exaggerating. It's super soft, it's long, it's perfect. I wear it to work, I throw it on before running errands, sometimes I'll just put it on when it gets super chilly at home and I want something cozy to keep me warm. This literally feels like a warm hug — you won't regret buying this, I promise.

    Get it from Old Navy for $50 (available in four colors, and sizes XS—2XL), or $46 (available in four colors, and sizes 1XL—4XL).

    18. An infinity pillow for a travel pillow you'll want to use constantly, not just while traveling! Yep, it's that comfy.


    And check out our picks for best travel pillows on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Promising review: "I bought this pillow for a 2.5-hour plane ride and five-night hotel stay to ward off neck aches induced by flat pillows. I’ve used it every night since and also while watching TV. It does fit on a carryon with a bit of smushing, but is not actually low-key in any way. It’s huge. But awesome. I don’t use it for noise-cancellation purposes, but I did use it while traveling for light blocking, and it works really well for that. It’s also useful if you need to lasso in your significant other. I’m six months pregnant and have been through five different pillows because of neck aches, and this one has outlasted all others and prevented them. Highly recommend." —Jen Gennaro

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90 (available in six colors).

    19. A light therapy lamp to help you power through the cold months where it's darker longer than it is light outside — the lack of sunlight AKA natural vitamin D can really dampen your overall mood and this may help to boost it!


    This lamp features easy one-touch technology and three levels so you can easily choose your desired brightness!

    Promising review: "After years and years of dealing with seasonal depression, I think I may have finally found the cure! It sounds like a miracle quick-fix, but it really is. In the past week, I have made a habit of sitting next to this lamp each morning for 30-40 minutes, and when I do I immediately feel the effects of feeling more awake and alert. I am usually sluggish and unresponsive in the morning, but as soon as I sit under my lamp, I perk up. The effects last throughout the day, and I no longer feel the heavy weight of depression brought on by the winter months. On a different note, the lamp is also really nice to display in my living room. It doesn’t look like a medical device, but rather like a cool, modern piece. This lamp has changed my life!!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99.

    20. A bath bomb gift set you should totally just gift to yourself — they all come in individual wrapping, and will give you the perfect excuse to relax in your tub with a glass of wine... not that you need an excuse.


    Promising review: "I bought these for my girlfriend as a graduation gift and she said they were better than Lush bath bombs that cost a minimum of $5-7 each. She said the aromatic smells of these were amazing and that she would definitely buy them again! She has incredibly sensitive skin and is allergic to so many soaps, chemicals, and foods, but these didn't make her break out in hives or irritate her skin — she loved them!" —MelonMan

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $17.99.

    21. An open-front poncho you'll want to buy in every color and wear every single day. It's soft and snuggly, and is basically like a blanket — in fashion form.

    Promising review: "This is very nice for the low price — it's very soft and and lightweight enough that it wraps nicely. I mostly bought it for air travel, since it serves as a good blanket. Material is an acrylic that becomes MUCH softer if you wash it in cold water and dry on delicate before wearing. Also, it's reversible and has lighter block colors on the inside. Well worth the price, and there are many color options." —VP

    Get it from Amazon for $25.80 (available in 34 styles, and o/s).

    22. A pair of wool Allbirds for a pair of shoes that'll feel super lightweight, won't retain all of your yucky feet smells, and leave your feet feeling warm when it's cold outside and cool when it's hot outside. Confused why you haven't pulled your credit card out yet.


    This is our mid-priced pick for best casual sneakers on BuzzFeed Reviews! Be sure to check out our review of the wonderful wool Allbirds (#2)!

    Get them from Allbirds starting at $95: shop the women's shoes here, and the men's shoes here.

    23. A pajama set that you'll wanna change into the second you arrive home...and be very sad to have to part ways with the next morning when it's time to get ready for real-world responsibilities again.


    Promising review: "Wow. These pajamas are fabulous. I love the slinky, soft, medium-weight fabric. When you slip them on, you will go 'Ahhhhhh,' they feel THAT good against the skin. I bought one pair in the pretty baby blue, and then came back for the navy. Rayon is notorious for shrinking, so I washed them on cold and let them air dry. I am 65-years-old, and have bought many, many pajamas in my lifetime. These are the best! Great bargain." —KarenR

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in various styles, and sizes XS–2XL).

    24. A fleece husband pillow for propping yourself up in bed while watching TV or doing a face mask, or lying back and relaxing while bingeing Netflix. It's there for you no matter what, and, TBH, is better than a real husband.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Everyone in my house is obsessed with this pillow! When I’m not using it, my dog is curled up napping in it or my boyfriend is stealing a turn. It’s super soft and actually really supportive — perfect for sitting up in bed, and it’s so cute that it adds to any aesthetic! We love it so much that we had to order a second one — can’t wait for side by side reading/movie watching in bed. Definitely worth every penny!" —Lacyjnsn

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $89 (available in two colors).

    25. Wool socks that'll have you ditching all your other socks ASAP. Rumor has it, if you try putting on socks that aren't these wool socks after you buy them, your feet will throw a temper tantrum until you put these on.

    Yes, I just personified your feet.

    Promising review: "Comfy, soft, and cute! What more can a person ask for in socks? They have held their shape well and the colors still look great. I love that these are also cozy and warm, but not sweaty and never itchy. Love them!" —J.M.H.

    Get a pack of five pairs from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 17 styles).

    26. A knitted pom beanie to keep your head nice and warm, but also looking super trendy all winter long.

    Promising review: "I love these hats! I'm amazed at the quality for the price. I kept one and gave the other as a gift. The hat sits up high off my head, (although, I have a small head!) The inside is lined with fleece, and is so nice and warm. The pom looks like real fur — it's so soft, and has held up with daily wear. Highly recommend!" —jro

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 31 colors).

    27. A Homesick candle in an extra warm and cozy scent that'll leave you wanting to just snuggle up in bed with approximately 500 fuzzy blankets.


    Top note: coconut, cream. Mid note: vanilla. Base note: vanilla, tonka bean.

    Get it from Homesick for $34.95.

    28. A pair of high-waisted velvet leggings to get if you're a smartie who knows that leggings are the COMFIEST of pants, but add in the fact that these are made of soft VELVET — yeah, we're on cloud nine.


    Get them from Asos for $141 (available in sizes XS—XL).

    29. A weighted blanket that'll help you fall asleep quicker, and stay asleep longer, because you deserve to give yourself the gift of a good night's rest.


    The weight of the blanket you choose should be about 10% of your body weight plus one.

    Promising review: "Over the past few years I’ve developed terrible sleep habits and thought that was just how it was going to be. I ordered this when it came up on a sale, and it has completely changed my sleep habits. No more night terrors, flopping around, laying awake for hours, or wild dreams. I’ve been sleeping through the night since having this blanket. The blanket doesn't make me hot, instead it’s a cozy warmth." —Ryan Westmoreland

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90+ (available in 22 colors, and 14 sizes).
