You’re probably bored of hearing me say about how much I love a cosy evening in during the Christmas period. But hear me out, after all it is the best time to have a snuggly evening in. I thought I’d share my cosy Christmas essentials with you, as I recently have been trying to up my game to ensure that my cosy nights in were definitely as exciting as going out.
Pyjamas: There is nothing I love more than getting home and getting straight into my pyjamas, whether it’s 5pm, or 9pm, there is nothing better especially on a cold dark night. The other Saturday, I changed into my Pj’s at 5pm and I had no regrets. SO COSY. But of course you have to have super cosy pjs or what is the point? This year I have picked up a couple of pairs from Primark; a cosy fleecy set and a flannel set which are both like being dressed in a cloud. Next also have some super soft pjs and I love these bottoms, I’ve been living in them recently!
Blankets: If you’re like me and you’re always a little cold, a blanket is a must have for a cosy night in. Primark are always my go to for blankets and throws, their £4 fleecy ones are my favourite and I think I have about four now! I just pop them on the sofa and at least that way, if anyone comes round there is plenty to share! I love nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket… yes I am 25 going on 95.
Films: You can’t have a cosy Christmas evening without watching a Christmas film can you? When I took these pictures, I was watching Home Alone, the classic of course. But other suggestions would be; Elf, The Holiday or Love Actually. Perfect cosy evening films!
Snacks: I used to try and use whatever snacks I had in my cupboard which usually was very unappealing. However this Christmas, I have been making more of an effort on the snack front (my jeans are not thanking me though haha) I’m all about popcorn, Terry’s Chocolate orange and gingerbread men this year, what are your favourite snacks? I usually also like a hot chocolate too (keep your eyes peeled this week, as I’m posting my fave hot chocolate recipes!)
Candles & Fairy Lights: I love Christmas candles and I tend to go a bit overboard every year buying every flavour I love haha. Henry will usually walk in the house and be like ‘it smells funny in here’. But I tend to light a couple and then switch on the fairy lights which just creates a really cosy light. Nothing makes me happier than being surrounded by fairy lights and candles haha!
Then I tend to put my phone away and snuggle down, it’s my favourite way to spend an evening, and it’s a lovely way to spend time with your loved ones.
So what are your Cosy Christmas Essentials?
