The winter months mean more time spent at home. Cuddling under cozy blankets. The delicious aroma of crockpot meals filling the house. Endless movie nights (or days) on the couch with the ones you love. It is easy to embrace the slow down of life that the colder seasons bring about. Make sure your home is stocked and ready to provide you with all of the comforts you look forward to at the start of a new year. 

Cook All Day

They don’t call it “winter weight” for nothing. Good food and drinks are what make the cold season most enjoyable. Find the perfect ingredients for that next hearty meal at Whole Foods. They boast a wide variety of high-quality products with healthy nutrition in mind. Whether you are looking to cook a stew, bake a pie or throw together a nourishing casserole, Whole Foods will have just what you need to get it done. Be sure to pair that delicious dish with a fine wine or your favorite beverage from Bin201. Or, if you are feeling rather lazy one cold evening, the restaurants on the property have you covered with curbside pick-up. And, based on your location – maybe even delivery!

Home Accents Matter

There is nothing that soothes the soul more than scented candles and plush blankets. Grab a faux fur blanket or chunky knit throw from Arhaus and drape it over a deep sofa or perfectly manicured bed boasting all of the essential throw pillows. It will just scream cuddle time to any passerby. Bring the outside in with some textured pieces from Z Gallerie. Evergreen plants, birchwood, potpourri, and snowflake imagery can serve as the perfect complement to those snowy days outdoors. Looking to truly commit to the cozy theme? Check out Restoration Hardware for inspiration in their Ski House sourcebook. Find unique home pieces like sheepskin sofas, reclaimed rustic oak tables, and wool herringbone drapes.

Game Night

Board games will never get old. Perfect for families of all sizes, a game night during these locked in, chilly months encourages family bonding and a little competitive fun. Bed Bath and Beyond, as well as Target, boast plenty of options to choose from. Start with a crowd favorite like Monopoly, Go Fish or UNO. For those feeling a little nostalgic, you can even find Battleship and Sorry. Or, challenge these young Tik Tok kids to a game more their speed like Wii Just Dance. 

Stay Toasty Outdoors

Warmth and comfort don’t have to only be found inside your home. There are tons of ways to stay warm as you are surrounded by the winter-friendly conditions outside. Add one of the most desirable amenities to your home – a hot tub – with the help of Offenbachers Home Escapes. Their wide assortment of spas boasts a number of standard and deluxe features. Looking for something a little more manageable? Browse the fire tables at Ethan Allen. These durable and stylish pieces update any outdoor space while providing a feeling of warmth to you and your guests. Further, transform your outdoor space by adding an outdoor rug that emphasizes your space and reflects your style. Bassett Furniture uses the best in outdoor fabrics to “live outside yourself”.
