Hey friends! Welcome back for Blogmas Day 6! Hope you all have been enjoying your December so far. I’m still waiting for the weather to cool all the way down, but it’s getting there.
As the weather cools down, cozy thoughts are the only things in my head. Who really wants to go to the club in the cold? It’s all about staying in, getting all warm and toasty, and relaxing the day away. Today I want to share with you all of the things you need to have the perfect night in this winter!
I spend my evenings with my boyfriend, but this is great to do with your partner, by yourself, or with a few friends!
First, you’re going to need to get cozy! Take a bath or shower and get into whatever makes you feel comfortable. I love slipping into a warm pair of pajamas or sometimes even an over sized sweater. I don’t like wearing socks, but I love a comfy house slipper in the colder months. They keep my feet warm and are so cute!
Now it is essential to have these next few things for your night in: food, something to do, and drinks!
I’m a fan of anything warm and fluffy in the winter and there’s never been a better time to have french toast for dinner, or a snack. Make sure you have a few things to choose from. A variety of foods with different textures, sweet and savory, usually keep my random snack cravings satisfied.
Now there’s one of two ways your mind could have went when I said drinks! A) Hot Cocoa or B) Alcohol. If you chose A)…… you are correct! I love me a good mug of hot chocolate. It’s mandatory for every winter night in. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
Now for those of you who thought B), I couldn’t just leave you out. Add some Kahlua to your hot chocolate and sip on, nobody has to know. I’ll also be doing a Holiday Cocktail Guide soon for Blogmas so subscribe and watch out for it if you’re looking for the perfect festive drink!
Next we need something to do! I love getting all cozy, sitting down with my hot mug of yumminess and watching a movie. Check out My Top 10 Christmas Movies to Get in the Holiday Mood for some good suggestions!
If movies aren’t your cup of cocoa then you can bust out the board games or play some Cards Against Humanity. I even enjoy breaking out the old-fashioned cards for some simple Solitaire. Heck, even video games! Whatever is fun for you and helps you unwind and get away from the stresses of everyday life. Even if it’s just for a little while.
Oh and warm blankets! Lots of warm, soft, fluffy blankets.
I enjoy staying in and relaxing on a cold night. There’s something so comforting about being surrounded by the things and/or people who you love.
