Receiving a thoughtful gift is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face and instantly brighten their day. Do you know what would make that special someone feel even better? Getting a gift that will keep them comfy, cozy, and warm. If you are looking for cozy gift ideas for loved ones this holiday season, check out some of these items that are perfect for winter.
When people hear the word “cozy”, they might envision an ultra-soft plush robe, a gorgeous fleece blanket, or a set of fuzzy slippers. But all of these gifts are designed to be worn in the comfort of one’s own home. A person deserves to be cozy even when they have to leave the house for work, errands, or some other occasion. One clothing item that is guaranteed to keep a person cozy is a high-quality flannel shirt. Flannels are much softer and comfier than many other clothing styles and fabrics, but they are presentable and stylish enough to wear in many different settings, ranging from dressier settings to more casual environments. If you plan to get a loved one a flannel shirt this year, pay attention to things like the fabric (100% cotton is the best), stitching, and durability. When you are buying someone a flannel shirt as a gift, you might as well make sure it’s a shirt that will last them for a long time. You can also shop around for different flannel shirt variations, like a thick flannel jacket with a shearling fur lining for even more comfort!
Since we are on the topic of comfy clothing gifts, we cannot overlook the classic Christmas sweater, another item that will definitely keep a person cozy. If the person you are buying a gift for loves all things Christmas, then by all means get a festive, holiday-themed Christmas sweater with traditional holiday colors and prints. However, if you are buying for someone who appreciates a high-quality sweater that can be worn any time of year, focus on things like cardigan sweaters, cashmere turtlenecks, and oversized chunky knit sweaters in solid colors or classic prints. Sweaters are designed to be worn as loungewear around the home or as something that coordinates well with outfits you wear outside of the house.
What could possibly be better than a cozy movie night on a snowy winter evening with all the supplies: a hot cup of cocoa or tea, caramel popcorn, and a super comfy, ultra-soft fleece blanket. A person can never have too many blankets, especially anyone living in a snowy, cold climate. This holiday season, shop for comfy fleece throw blankets in different colors and prints like plaid. A plaid print will really add to the coziness and festiveness factor.
If the person you are buying for already has plenty of blankets, perhaps they would appreciate new bedding, like flannel sheets. While lightweight sheets like cotton are more ideal for the warmer seasons, once the temperatures start to dip, flannel is the way to go. It’s thick, durable, warm, and cozy and instantly makes slipping into bed even better. Dare we say, having warm flannel sheets may even improve a person’s sleep quality. You can also find plenty of different styles when it comes to flannel sheets, ranging from off-white solid colored sheets to plaid print sheets.
Elegant loungewear pieces are a great way to not only make a person feel comfy and cozy, but special and luxurious too. What is it about a soft cashmere sweater that just feels even better than a simple cotton sweater? If the person you are shopping for spends a lot of time at home or works from home, then they need some proper loungewear attire! You could get them a high-end sweater or a loungewear set, like a soft pullover and matching slouchy pants. Slippers are another excellent loungewear piece to have at home, so if you know the person you are gifting is in need of new footwear, shop for things like furry slide-on slippers or shearling fur-lined moccasins.
Wearing anything fleece is what we imagine getting wrapped up in a fluffy cloud might be like. When you have a fleece jacket or a fleece vest, it feels like walking around in a blanket. Who wouldn’t want to be wrapped up in something that feels like a luxurious blanket when they have to brave the cold, blustery weather? Fleece is also very trendy, so a high-quality fleece jacket is something your loved one can wear while at the office, out to dinner, or off running errands.
