To celebrate National Cuddle Up Day, I’m sharing my 5 favorite cuddle essentials. Cuddling just so happens to be my favorite winter pastime, and now that we are home more than ever, its become a daily ritual. It’s hibernation season, so let’s embrace it and celebrate.
Here are my favorite cuddle up essentials:
Whether cuddling up alone or with loved ones, a blanket is essential. These faux fur throws and these Barefoot Dreams blankets are my favorite couch throws for snuggling up after a long day. They’re so soft, warm, and beautiful. You can find some Barefoot Dreams blankets on sale here.
A Warm Beverage
A hot toddy or a warm cup of tea is a must after a long day of remote learning (we are doing it this week and I can’t believe it’s Dry January and it’s only a Wednesday). My kids love this real deal hot cocoa and its on sale.
There is nothing more appropriate than a hot meal fresh out of the slowcooker for dinner on National Cuddle Up Day. I swear by my Crock Pot, especially on busy days. Gina Homolka, the genius behind Skinnytaste, creates the most delicious, healthy slow cooker recipes in case you need inspiration. This white pumpkin chili is one of my all-time favorites.
If you have a fireplace, today is the day to get it lit. Don’t have a fireplace or a vent? This worked great for me when I lived in an apartment without one.
