Now that we’re all back to the real world and are no longer in a dreamy haze of binge-watching TV with a rum-spiked eggnog in hand, blissfully unaware of the day of the week, the next best thing we all look forward to doing the second the clock strikes 5 p.m. is rushing home to turn down the lights, light some candles, slip into fuzzy slippers, wrap ourselves in a faux-fur blanket, and surround ourselves in cozy, comfy home decor.
If you don’t have the essentials to turn your home into a wintertime sanctuary so you can successfully hibernate your way to the slightly warmer temps of spring, don’t fret; we have you covered.
From bedding and blankets to pajamas you won’t ever want to take off, here are the products you absolutely need this winter.

A Cozy Duvet
Staying warm and cozy during the winter is all about having the proper bedding. Give your bedroom a mini makeover by swapping out your current duvet for a 100% French flax linen duvet that will transform your space into a warm and comforting oasis. We love this duvet from Bed Threads because they offer some of the best linen products we’ve ever felt and the colors they offer are so chic and trendy. We also love the versatility of this linen because it’s perfect for warmer summer months too.
Weighted blankets are the ultimate cozy products but they aren’t always super stylish. Luckily this chunky knit weighted blanket combines function and beauty so you can snap some Instagram-worthy pics while you snuggle up on the couch.
Can’t go wrong with the most popular highly rated PJ’s on Amazon.
Memory Foam Slippers
The thought of stepping onto a cold, hard floor with bare feet in the winter makes us want to cringe. Luckily, these cloud-like memory foam slippers will keep you comfy and your toes warm and toasty all season long.
Fiddle-leaf fig plant
Winter can leave you seriously craving green grass and plants. A houseplant is an easy way to get your green fix. Plus, houseplants have some amazing health benefits, too. If a fiddle-leaf fig isn’t your style, check out some of our other favorite low-maintenance houseplants.
