Winter accessories to keep you warm
Portable sherpa rugs will keep you warm whether you are working on your computer, watching TV or playing video games. Pockets are a must-have to have necessities at hand. Take it outside to the campfire or cheer on your favorite players for an outdoor game.
warm slippers is a necessity for cold days. Surround your feet in warmth with plush fleece slippers. Look for solid rubber soles for indoor and outdoor traction and memory foam inside to help maintain shape with wear. Machine washable fabrics make slippers easy to maintain.
Sheepskin insoles make any shoe or slipper warmer. Look for arch support and you will go on air all winter.
Foot massagers provide more than just warmth to your feet. Look for multiple levels of vibration and heat.
Matching pajamas is excellent choice for everyone! Plaids, stripes and holiday themes with feet and caps for all ages make everyone smile. Look for bow ties and bandanas for your dog. Then break out the board games!
Heated blankets at the top of the list of affordable heat. Do you want to cuddle with everyone in the family? Go for an oversized rug. Look for machine washable rugs with auto-off features and temperature and dual control if you like your side of the bed warmer or cooler than the person you are sharing it with.
Colorful pillows add a splash to the sometimes sad winter season. Mongolian fur, sheepskin and fake fur bring cozy warmth to your furniture. Look for oversized pillows and floor pillows to relax and watch a favorite holiday movie. Swap your usual with holiday or winter themed pillows.
Area rugs is essential in the winter if your home has hardwood floors, which adds warmth and texture. Consider another rug to lay over an existing rug for cushioning under your feet. No one likes to jump out of bed on a cold floor, so add a sumptuous rug next to your bed.
Throw blankets are perfect for reading chairs. Rugs in 100% wool or cotton with a bit of weight are good for cuddling. It’s about teams!
Flannel or fleece sheets provide a cozier, warmer bed for the winter season. Look for soft, lightweight sets. Your bed will be so comfortable that you do not want to get out!
A ceramic space heater with an adjustable thermostat you ensure both warm and safe. Look for high and low heat settings as well as only fan and rollover protection.
Best winter kitchen accessories
An Instant Pot is one of the best things you can do for your family. Quick and easy recipes abound this season to ensure a hot delicious meal is ready at the end of the day. Make sure it has a removable insert and dishwasher-safe lid for super-quick cleaning.
A hot drink station setup is a simple addition that feels fancy. Equip it with several different coffees and teas, jugs of cream and flavors. Include the kids with hot chocolate, marshmallows and peppermint tubes.
Upgraded mugs can make your hot drinking station super fun and help keep your to-go drinks warm! Modern, retro, traditional, eclectic, rustic or glam, there is one for everyone. Look for double-walled vacuum insulation to keep your hot beverage warm, or try one mug heater to keep your drink warm. If you are on the go, a thermocross can be your ticket to heat!
New cookbooks from your favorite chefs can inspire creativity and new beloved creations. Sliced weekends require delicious hot meals and snacks. Go down and behind, behind, behind.
Do not forget the bathroom accessories!
Candles and essential oils will transform your bathroom into your own personal spa. Take a hot bath, light these candles and get ready to relax.
Portable speakers bring soothing music to your newly upgraded spa bathroom. Look for one that is waterproof and has a decent range.
A nice coat is a must when you get out of your luxurious bath. Fleece, plush or flannel are the best materials to keep warm in winter.
Accessories for winter lighting
Night light for the bathroom or hallway becomes essential as daylight becomes shorter. Choose one with low wattage to hold on all day for warm lighting or with motion detection to instantly light up dark rooms.
Flashing light is not just for the holidays. Place white candles around the cloak, along your stairs or in your bedroom all winter long. Battery powered and automatic on and off are important features.
These winter accessory ideas will keep you delicious inside and out and add a warm atmosphere to all your living spaces!
