One of the best things about this time of year is enjoying all of the cozy nights in at home. You can make everything extra comfy, and relax in a way that’s just not possible over the warmer months. A night in is a great way to spend time with family, or just unwind on your own after a long day, and have a little ‘me time.’ Here are some of the ways you can celebrate the chilly seasons by having a night in at home.
6 Easy ways to get ready for Cozy nights in
Get your home ready
A home that’s clean and tidy will always be best to spend time in, so get organised before your cozy night in. Check that your heating is working, and ensure there are no draughts from the windows or leaks from the roof. Any issues can be resolved by hiring a company like Paradigm Roofing.
Soak in a Hot Bath
A hot bath solves everything. When you’re stressed, unwell or tired and want to feel better- hot water and bubbles can soak your troubles away. A hot bath reduces blood pressure, boosts mood and promotes relaxation so is the perfect way to start off your cozy night in. Having a gorgeous bathroom to relax in is key, and so spend some time making it spic and span and update your accessories.
Fluffy towels, a soft bath mat, and pretty decorative pieces will make it even more enjoyable to spend time in. Cold weather can be harsh on our skin, so some hydrating body butter, hand cream, and foot cream is a nice way to pamper and protect against dryness.
Warm pajamas, dressing gowns, fluffy socks and slippers are what fall and winter are all about! Now is the perfect time to treat yourself to some new winter pj’s,so pop some in your shopping basket next time you’re out.
It’s easy to get caught up on trying to make our homes look beautiful. But smell is a powerful sense and one that shouldn’t be overlooked. Scents can make us feel happy and generally add a cozy ambiance to the room that you just can’t achieve any other way. Scented candles, reed diffusers, essential oils and plug in air fresheners in seasonal fragrances are all a good way to bring in stunning scents into the room.
Go with fruits, spices, and vanilla as well as things like fresh pine needles to bring in the season to your home.
TV and Entertainment
You’re never short for movies to watch when you have Netflix, and with it being so close to Halloween you could put on some horrors or thrillers. One of the great things about fall is that there is always a load of great tv series on to watch too. Alternatively, you could pop on a family friendly movie and spend movie night cozied up with the family instead.
Food and Drink
The colder months are the time for some classic home cooked comfort food. Skip the takeaway and prepare something that was made with love. If you want to keep it simple, utilize the slow cooker. In the morning put in your choice of meat, potatoes, vegetables and seasoning on low- then by the evening you have a piping hot meal ready to go. Indulge in some hot chocolate or some fancy teas and coffees.
Celebrate the flavors of fall and winter and let a good meal and drinks warm you up.
