Holiday Gift Guide for Cozy Livin’

Comfort is the key to happiness. I’m sure of it. Whenever I’m uncomfortable (even in the slightest) I’m a whiny monster, but whenever I’m comfortable, I’m happy. And whenever the temperatures start to drop, hot cocoa and warm blankets turn me into a giddy fool. It’s the time of year to really let your cozy flag fly and snuggle the eff up.

If you have someone in your life that appreciates the cozy life (or if this person is you – TREAT YO SELF), here are some soft and magnificent gift ideas.

1. Snuggle Monster Tee from BuyMeBrunch

This tee is super soft, oversized, and hey, it promotes snuggling. What more could you ask for? This site has a great selection of soft tees at great prices. If the whole snuggle monster thing isn’t for you, go a little more extreme with this one.

2. Alice in Wonderland Storybook Blanket from uncommongoods

Any fan of this literary classic will love this blanket. Not only is it extremely cozy, but it’s also made from pre-consumer cotton scraps that are shredded and then re-spun into new yarn, making it a mixture of cotton yarn with acrylic yarn for extra stretch. And it would make a beautiful addition to anyone’s living room.

3. The Dreamer Flannel Pajama from Victoria’s Secret

Not many people have mastered cozy livin’ quite like Ms. Jessica Day. When it comes to pajamas, she could put on a GD clinic. In fact, several of the pj sets seen on New Girl are from Victoria’s Secret. You can find almost her entire onscreen wardrobe documented here, with links to these exact items available for purchase. SCORE.

4. Ultra-Cozy Hooded Robe from Forever21

Does anyone else get overly excited when they find a bathrobe hanging in the closet of their hotel room? I feel like a plush robe for every guest is the sign of a seriously classy joint. Don’t even care how many people wore it before me.

Give the gift of snuggly glee with this hooded bathrobe. It’s knee-length, has pockets, and a tie waist. Pair it with a rainy day and some Bon Iver and you have the perfect chill afternoon.

5. MukLuks Tribal Motif Slipper Boots from PacSun

These adorable kicks are slouchy and warm with a sweater exterior, a fleece interior, and rubber soles. LOVE the fringe tie strings as well.

And, guys? Don’t ever pay full price for this stuff when you can track down an online coupon. That just seems straight up loco.

6. Cozy Sweater Yankee Candle from Amazon

No joke, this is a scent. What does a cozy sweater even smell like? According to the scent description: “This fragrance’s warm touches of musk and patchouli will have you kicking back and relaxing in no time at all. You’ll find a nice floralcy to the scent, accompanied by a warm base . . . almost amber-like.”

Okay, if that’s not your idea of cozy, you can’t go wrong with these scents: Soft Blanket, Mountain Lodge, and White Christmas.

7. Cup of Cozy Teapot from ModCloth

Realistically, a teapot is the last thing that needs added warmth, but it’s just so stinking cute that it deserved a spot on the list. Putting clothes on inanimate objects? #genius

8. The North Face Women’s Denali Jacket from Amazon

Growing up in New England, coats from The North Face were always on everyone’s Christmas lists. They’re toasty, high quality, casual, yet classic at the same time. You really can’t go wrong with a winter jacket from The North Face. It’s guaranteed warmth and style.

9. Yami Distressed Leather Tote from Raven + Lily

Handmade distressed leather tote made from Ethiopian leather. This bag is soft, gorgeous, and will go with any outfit you have. It’s also extremely roomy, so you could probably fit all of the items above in it if you needed to. Planning a cozy cocktail night with your besties? Pack the above essentials in this tote if the night turns into a sleepover.

Raven + Lily is a brand that supports an incredible mission. This item was made in partnership with a brand new workshop in Addis Ababa, focused on providing employment opportunities for women vulnerable to labor trafficking.

Happy Holidays, y’all. Keep it cozy.
