One of the best things about winter is the cozy nights at home. To me, there’s nothing better than snuggling up with a warm blanket next to a crackling fire. Unfortunately, I don’t have a fireplace (tear), but I do have a few cozy items that I’d recommend for a cozy night at home. Here are my favorite winter night essentials:

1. Candles
Since I don’t have a fireplace, the candles bring that pretty ambiance that a good winter night needs. I especially love scented candles since that added favorite scent can bring back memories, relax you, or make you feel like you’re somewhere special.

2. A Soft, Pretty Blanket
Wrapping yourself in a soft blanket is a must on a cold winter night. And a pretty design will just add to that feeling of comfort. In the winter, I prefer prints and textures like plaid, faux fur and and chunky knit.

3. A Good Book
Whether you prefer paperbacks or read on a tablet, a good book is a must for a cozy night. If you’re not much of a reader, pop in a classic movie for entertainment, or browse your tablet and catch up on your favorite blogs.

4. A Warm Cup of Comfort
No matter your drink of choice, sipping on a warm drink soothes and warms you inside out. Whether you’re a hot chocolate kind of girl, enjoy some mulled wine, or go straight for the cider, enjoying a nice cup of something warm will certainly add to the coziness of the night.
