Winter is almost here and after the challenges 2020 has given us, many of us are more than ready for a cozy and happy Christmas with our family. If you are looking to reduce the stress levels in your life and need a cozy night in with your loved ones, I have some simple ways to create a comfy winter night in. Follow these easy steps for creating the perfect winter night in.
Before you sit down in front of the tv for a cozy night, try pampering yourself a little bit. Try putting on a 5 minute hair mask and face mask, then wash it off, moisturize and put on your favorite pyjamas. Once your mini pamper session is done you’ll be ready for the rest of the night.
Put the heat on
To create a cozy atmosphere in your home for the evening, the last thing you want is a cold living room. Make your house cozy by putting on the heat for a little while to make sure that you, your family, and your pets can enjoy the heat. Even better – if you have a fireplace be sure to put that on!
Light some candles or diffuse essential oils
Candles and/or oils are essential for a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Lighting a few tealights and/or a larger scented candle will add the perfect air of comfort to your evening. I prefer essential oils in my diffusers. There are so many recipes that can create that perfect, relaxing atmosphere. Also consider switching on some fairy lights and really making your winter home feel magical and festive.
Break out the blankets
One way to get comfortable and cozy for your winter night in is to break out the blankets and cushions. Decorating the living room during winter is always fun because you get to layer up textures and colors, and enjoy bringing some extra softness to the space. Wrapping yourself up underneath a blanket has to be the best way to enjoy your night when you are at home this winter.
Order some comfort food
Why cook when there are so many pizza places open late? Don’t worry about cooking a fancy meal for yourself and your family one evening and instead treat yourself to a delicious meal from your favorite delivery place. It will be amazing for all of you and you’ll be able to sit back and relax for the night as you snack on something delicious.
Watch your favorite holiday movie
Christmas movies have to be some of the best around and always put us in a better mood. To make your perfect winter night complete you have to turn on your favorite holiday film. Here are some ideas:
- Home Alone
- The Grinch
- Santa Claus
- Christmas Vacation
- A Christmas Story
Kick back and relax with a glass of mulled wine or a hot chocolate and enjoy your perfect winter night!
