Cozy gifts for almost anyone

When winter comes, all I want to be is cozy. My partner and I even have a nickname for this state, “maximum coze”. I’ll admit it might not roll off the tongue as well as “hygge”, the Nordic word for cozy contentment, but it describes how I feel on the first of December. I want cuddly blankets, scented candles, and something hot to drink. I get into major nesting mode as the seasons change and I love making my living space as warm and enjoyable as possible, since the darkness and cold outside really wreaks havoc on my mood.

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to create a little list of cozy gifts that you can give almost anyone on your list. They make a bleak winter day a little more cheerful, and many are just luxe upgrades of items you already use everyday, meaning they’re also practical. Some of these are also excellent gifts to keep on standby as last-minute gifts for a hostess or a gift exchange. And the best part? Each of these cozy gifts are under $50, so you won’t break the bank.

    Ah! My husband and I call it Cozycore (a pun on the Normcore trend of 2013) and it’s our favorite time of year. We just celebrated our anniversary and our ‘gifts’ to each other were a shopping day to pick up some new thermals, sweaters, and jackets!

    Those coasters are so pretty!

      Oh, I love that term! Cozycore! And new thermals and sweaters are the best. New socks, too…I suppose that makes me weird, but I’m always thrilled to have cozy new socks!
