Cozy gifts

Bean Bags

My family likes to snuggle as much as the next, but when it comes to movie nights, we have run out of furniture. That’s why I’ve decided to invest in a couple of bean bags. In the past, we’ve had some disappointing experiences with them, but this time I’ve done my research. 

  • The Chillsack is the number one rated bean bag by both The Spruce and The Strategist. This memory foam lounger comes in a variety of sizes, colors and even shapes and is reasonably priced.  
  • Lovesack, which also makes “Sactional” sofas, is the home of the ultimate cozy nest. But the price tag makes it a serious investment, so be sure having a giant beanbag in the middle of your family room is right for you.
  • Finally, for a variety of fun fabrics and patterns, you can’t go wrong with a bean bag from Pottery Barn Teen.

Pajamas and Robes

  • When I was a little girl, my mother gave me a new nightgown every year on Christmas Eve. I have continued that tradition with my daughters, only we all get new pjs on Thanksgiving. That way we are set for our holiday movie marathons. This year everyone is getting a pair of these super soft pajamas from Ekouaer. The tough part was deciding on a color.
  • If I ever get the go-ahead from my guys to buy matching pajamas for the whole family, they will have to come from Hanna Andersson. They have the best holiday and family pajama sets! 
  • Technically not pajamas, these Tie Dye Joggers at Zulily are such a great price, I might have to get these for my girls too. 
  • Since they aren’t big fans of pajamas, the men in my life might be getting a pair of these Tommy John Second Skin  joggers or this David Archy lounge set. 
  • If you’re looking for a robe for your son or husband, check out this Serious Sweats robe from Landsend or this Double Comfort Portaguese Flannel Robe from the Vermont Country Store. 
  • For girls this short robe and this long robe both get great reviews on Amazon, and both look super cozy. 

House Shoes and Slippers

To keep everyone’s feet cozy and warm, look no further.

  • L.L. Bean makes these super cute scuffs for girls and these Wicked Good Slippers for guys.
  • Known for making some of the best fitting socks on the market, Bombas also makes Gripper Slippers for ladies and men.
  • And for style, comfort, and excellent foot support, take a look at these indoor/outdoor wool clogs in so many styles and colors.
  • These Uggs are everyone’s favorite slipper, super comfortable and sturdy.


If cozy is what you’re after, here are three blankets that will not disappoint. 

  • The Everlasting Comfort blanket has over 2000 reviews on Amazon with nearly 90% giving a 4 or 5 star rating.
