Unwrapping a cozy sweater is like receiving a giant hug. Cuddly, soft, and snug, there's something undeniably comforting about giving and receiving cozy items that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Keep that feel-good spirit going all season with gifts meant for curling up with a good book, a cup of tea, and a loved one. From candles to faux fur throws and flannel PJs, the items ahead are exactly what your friends and family are longing for this Winter. Check out our heartwarming picks below!
A versatile neutral sweater is a no-fail gifting option. Timeless and classic, a gray knit can be dressed up or down and will pair well with virtually everything they already own. But just as much as we need soft, cozy clothing, sometimes comfort food is what really hits the spot. Giving a box of chocolates is a yummy way to show you care, as is the gift of calming tea made to soothe away all that holiday stress. For the friend in your life who appreciates a quiet night in, choose fuzzy items like a new pillow cover or extra plush slippers.
Get the whole family matching in coordinating red pajamas. Festive, cute, and totally Instagrammable, these soft sets are ideal for lounging in style and embracing relaxing nights next to the fire. But of course no fireside chat is complete without a cup of hot chocolate. Try gifting a playful mug that speaks to their personality and fill it with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. Perfume and fancy soaps are another way to pamper your friends and family, and a smart speaker is exactly what they need for those de-stressing bubble baths.
No need to worry about sizing when giving accessories, and these cold-weather must-haves can't be beat when it comes to warming your loved ones up on even the coldest days. Providing practical style, scarves and hats are two things you can never have too many of — especially in Winter when you rely on them every day! For when they'd rather hibernate inside, a super soft blanket will have them feeling comfy in an instant. Allow them to set a cozy mood with the warm glow of a candle, while fancy bath oils and bath bombs soothe their dry skin — and just like that you gifted them an at-home spa day!
It doesn't get much easier than giving a one-and-done pajama set complete with a matching eye mask. But for the ultimate get-cozy gift, give a trendy pair of buffalo-check PJs (available in sizes for the whole family) or a festive sweater, along with a small token like a quirky ornament or favorite holiday treat. You can never go wrong with stuffed animals for little ones, and who doesn't appreciate a tin of delicious cookies?
Keep your loved ones warm all Winter long with cuddly knits. Whether the pieces are neutral or bursting with personality, there's no question they'll turn to these items time and time again during the long Winter months. And with cute designs and fun colors (how adorable are these penguin motifs?), bundling up just became a whole lot more fun! Stocking stuffers like plush velvet scrunchies and sizzling red nail polish make excellent gifts for the fashion enthusiasts on your list, while comforting room spray and a planner will help them feel recharged and ready to start the new year fresh.
Be bold by giving cheerful red pieces that are both cozy and festive. Perfectly on trend for the season while remaining effortless and relaxed, these items will get loads of wear both now and all the way until Spring. Embrace the holiday spirit even further by sticking to an entire red theme; candles, sparkly hair pieces, and statement earrings are all refined and thoughtful options. If you're looking to really impress her, throw in a limited-edition lipstick.
