While it’s vital that you still make an effort to get out and about over the winter time, sometimes nothing beats a cosy night in. If you’ve had a busy day at work or out Christmas shopping, or you are struggling to fight off a cold, there’s nothing better than snuggling up in your pyjamas and getting some all-important rest. It can give your body a chance to unwind and recover, help beat off bugs before they hit, keep you warm, help you to unwind and even help you to sleep better. Let’s take a look at everything that you need for a cosy night in this winter.
At this time of year, Christmas films are perfect. When it’s cold outside, and winter seems to be endless, it’s a really great way to remind yourself of the magic that this time of year brings. Whether you prefer an old favourite like “It’s a Wonderful Life” or a modern classic such as “Elf” get all your DVDs out for the ultimate festive binge. If you prefer something a little less soppy, “Die Hard” offers the perfect alternative to all that Christmas cheer!
Of course, if you are reading this after Christmas and don’t fancy a Christmas film in March, other options will do. As long as it’s something that makes you happy.
The perfect cosy night in could never be complete without some great foods. If you enjoy cooking, a warming winter stew or casserole could be the perfect dish. If you don’t fancy it, or you’re not a keen cook, why not order in from your favourite restaurant or takeaway?
A good meal is great, but if you are snuggling up with a film, you’ll need some snacks too. Popcorn is the ultimate movie night treat and comes in a huge range of different flavours nowadays.
You can’t possibly relax and unwind on an uncomfortable sofa. Duresta sofas and chairs can offer the perfect place to slob out in comfort. Whatever you are sitting on, make sure you bring blankets or your duvet down for extra comfort.
This is the perfect time of year for going out and treating yourself to some new nightwear. Is there anything more relaxing than getting into your PJ’s as soon as you get home from work in the winter? Well, you’re allowed to for your perfect cosy night in. Make sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible.
In our busy lives, we so rarely get the chance to stop and look after ourselves. Your pamper essentials depend on you and your tastes, but some options include:
- A long, hot bubble bath
- A manicure
- Massage Oils
- Hair Oils
- Relaxing music
As Christmas approaches, it’s more important than ever that you take some time out for yourself. Think about all the things that you find relaxing, that you don’t always have the time to do, free up an evening in your diary, and treat yourself to the ultimate night of luxury.
