It’s days like these that having a cosy home really comes into its own! Yes, we love the summer with its long al fresco picnics and days in the garden, but in the winter give us a snuggly throw, light the fire and prepare not to see us until spring. We’ve put together a cosy night in kit to help you hibernate the time away in your cosy home until the better (and warmer) weather.
1. Set of three cloud candles, Sunday Living
These cute candles have it all – they’re clouds, they’re pink and they’re covered in real gold leaf! Made from 100% soy wax, they’ll bring a little bit of heaven to your cosy home this winter. £12 for three, available from Sunday Living.
2. Couch throw blanket in sky blue, Alice Potter
It may be grey outside, but it can be spring on your sofa with this cheerful sky blue blanket patterned with daisies. It features the pattern on one side and a plain white reserve side so that you can change your look. It’s made from 100% polyester so easy to wash and wipe if you have pets or small children! £60, available from Alice Potter.
3. Little box of rest, Ocean & Bee
Perfect as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone you know who is in need of some rest and relaxation, this little box contains a beautiful fabric eyeshade by House of Hopstock and a sachet of Himalayan bath salts by Corinne Taylor. Contents are vegan, free from single-use plastics and palm oil and sourced from British independent artisans. £23, available from Ocean & Bee.
4. Weighted blanket, Homescapes Online
Weighted blankets are designed to provide a feeling of comfort and support while you rest and can help improve sleep. Providing evenly distributed weight across your whole body, this gentle pressure can encourage the release of dopamine and serotonin which have a calming, soothing and reassuring effect on the mind and body. This grey blanket is made from faux velvet and cotton and is the perfect addition for a cosy home. Prices start at £29.99, available from Homescapes Online.
5. Hummingbird cushion, Mint & May
You can’t get a good ‘sofa nest’ going without a couple of cushions, and we think this colourful version is equal to any winter’s day. Made from super soft velvet, the detailed pattern captures multi-coloured hummingbirds surrounded by flowers and a deep blue night sky. £38, available from Mint & May.
6. Hedgehog blanket, J J Textile
You can never have too many throws in our opinion, and this hedgehog patterned version ticks all the boxes. It’s made from 80% wool and 20% cotton and covered with a very cute hedgehog design. Perfect for curling up under in your cosy home until spring, it costs £99 from J J Textile.
7. Jardin de Maguelone cup, Jars Ceramiste
Made by Jars Ceramiste in their workshop in France, this little handleless cup in Pattison is from the Jardin de Maguelone colection. Made from a high quality ceramic, the lower part is covered in a barely visible pastel pink colour mat glaze whilst the rim and inside have a clear glaze. Perfect for wrapping your hands round for warmth, it costs £10 from Adobe Living.
8. Vegan hot chocolate bombes, Prezzybox
Made from 55% Belgian dark chocolate, each bombe contains vegan mini marshmallows, which are revealed as the chocolate melts. Perfect for the ultimate cosy home night in, the set of three costs £11.99 from Prezzybox.
9. Vintage style metal candle lantern, Melody Maison
If you don’t have a real fire then this lantern is a great alternative, giving a feeling of cosy warmth. It would look equally good standing on the floor, on a side table or hanging from a hook. £23.95, available from Melody Maison.
10. Lambswool hot water bottle cover. Welsh Otter
This cosy hot water bottle is made from soft lambswool – perfect for cuddling on cold evenings. Each cover is knitted in ‘Llandeilo’ geometric design. The 100% lambswool is soft and not itchy or scratchy. It comes complete with a two litre hot water bottle included and is made in the UK. £38, available from Welsh Otter.
